I ate here in 1986. It was my first Sushi experience and has always remained the best experience. Very fresh and reasonable prices. Still a great assortment of appetizers and specials which are awesome. Went here again after 28 year absence. It is still the best experience. Only thing is the service got bogged down at the end, but they... More

The fish is so fresh you'd swear you were in the ocean not just near it! Taka-san is the master maestro with a helpful comment weather you are new to sushi or a seasoned pro. Scan the chalk board for the non standard items of the day. Black Snapper was divine and aji was sublime. The Anaga was unlike any... More

We've been here many times and always enjoyed the food. The sushi is solid, but the pieces are small compared to other higher end sushi places. Our pieces were like what you'd find at an all you can eat place with lots of rice and a sliver of fish on top. The quality of the fish was good, but again,... More

Amazing, delicious, fresh, fresh, fresh! Totally enjoyed several of the specialities of the house. Highly recommended by family members, patrons since 1994, several of us visited and sampled too many to list. Only 1 roll was ordered, the rest of our orders were hand selected and didn't disappoint.

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

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.
