Reliably great Japanese restaurant. Upscale casual atmosphere, good table service and superb food. Tables for more than 4 people might be a long wait.

I've now eaten at Koi three times on three different trips to the west coast and this is consistently excellent! I've had sushi all over the world, including several places in Japan and no restaurant provides better taste, more artful presentation, or greater selection than Koi. It is a little more expensive than many sushi restaurants but well worth it.... More

Go here frequently with family or group of ten for office birthdays. Food is always fresh, beautifully served and more than enough. Get the tempura and teriyaki combo plate. Oh, the tempura is so thin and delicate, served with soup, salad, rice, garlic potatoes, edamame and moist chicken with teriyaki sauce. Service speed is always sort of a problem but... More

Reliably good food and service at our neighborhood restaurant. We're treated like family because we eat here frequently.

We go to Koi for as many special occasions as we can think of. Birthdays, the kids back in town, a promotion or just cause. The sushi bar is great for couples. A booth allows a larger group to interact. The fish is fresh. The hand rolls are wonderful. Prices are good for the quality. The servers are attentive.

I expected more after reading all the rave reviews! We went for lunch and I had the fish carpaccio which was amazing. The seafood salad was smothered in soy sauce. I should have order the dressing on the side because I'm not a big fan of soy sauce! The spicy tuna hand roll was terrible! It was the worst hand... More

A truly excellent, cosy neighborhood place for sushi, tempura, etc. It doesn't get any better. We visit often. But parking can be an issue on busy evenings.

Best California roll I've ever had. It's amazing what fresh crab can do. I had the Sushi combination. Each piece was very good. It also came with miso soup and a very nice salad. They provide two different salad dressings for the salad. The combo sushi is $19.95, but worth it. My waitress was also very helpful and friendly.

Best sushi bar in California. Chef Taka won't let you down : he will create your dream sushi to order with premium grade fish. The yellow tail cheek remains my favorite, along with anything else he makes. Or, just look into your neighbors' plate and point that out for your next course. Every time, your experience is somehow enhanced. You... More
