Japanese
Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. Thin tapestries of translucent rose fabric are embellished with flame motifs and suspended from the ceiling, creating a separate seating area perfect for a light bite near the large front windows.
Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.

The food was fantastic! The issue was that they hovered over your table and were ready to grab the plates if even if there was food on it. No one asked if we were done. Also we ordered dessert (cheesecake and banana spring rolls) and it took 20 minutes to receive, but with the main dishes we received not 5 mins after we ordered

Great contemporary Japanese restaurant, tasty food, attentive service - Michael did a great job. There smaller tables at the window with a view on Bryant Park, larger tables in the main restaurant and a Sushi bar, additionally very good gluten-free menu options. I can only recommend it.

I highly question the current overall rating of this restaurant which was my main reason to try it out. I felt the food was very mediocre, especially for their pricing. Restaurant feels very much like a 'wannabee', especially in comparison with some of their peers. Ambiance feels outdated.

Great place to go for a drink, group dinner, and date night out. The food is wonderful and has great flavor. I'd recommend the Steam Sea Bass.

The ambiance is great and the music is at a moderate level so you can have . a conversation with your date or company.

The service is well. Able to articulate and recommend dishes as well as polite. The level of service I receive as just, right!

I'd recommend Koi

The food was nearly as amazing as always (I say almost as we must have accidentally ordered too many items that came with the same acidic soy related sauce). But there were so few people that it was a bit eerie. 10 years ago on a Saturday night there would have been a crowd so large you could not get to the check in desk. Last night the room got to max 50% capacity during our time. Not sure what is going on. Hoping it is a Memorial Day fluke as I love this place despite it's amazingly high prices and would like to see it stay in business.

It was super expensive for what you get. Couldn’t understand the waiter and that caused some errors in the order. Dinner with dessert and a class of wine is about $100 each person. Better value elsewhere. The miso soup was very salty.

A great venue with all round excellent food. The crispy rice is a staple dish that always impressed. There is really nothing that can go wrong on the menu. The Tuna with foie gras is a well done dish, with masterful taste. The drinks are always top notch and the service is above the rest often. Sometimes the front desk staff can be a little persnickety, but in general, this place is excellent and someplace I've been going to for over 10 years.

Great food as always. Service was great. The warm spinach and mushroom salad came out cold so we sent it back. When it returned, it was only slightly warm but still tasty. I could tell the server was frustrated, so obviously this dish is a pain point for the kitchen. If it's marketed as warm, I would expect it to be warm throughout. But it was still delicious as I remember it to be.

Spectacular Asian Fusion cuisine. The Rock Shrimp and crispy rice appetizers were very interesting with balanced spice and flavorful seafood. The double tuna roll featured a buttery sashimi tuna on a spicy tuna roll...great combo. Nice view overlooking Bryant Park complemented by thoughtful, attentive service.
