Description: Koi Los Angeles is a sophisticated blend of feng shui and modern elegance...
Koi Los Angeles is a sophisticated blend of feng shui and modern elegance. Illuminated by candlelight, the natural and intricate details of the restaurant create an elegant dining atmosphere, while the Zen inspired design of earth-toned colors, sleek design, fireplaces and waterscapes all create a stunning atmosphere of harmony by combining subtly luxurious materials with nature’s elements of water, air, fire and light. At Koi, chefs deconstruct traditional Japanese preparations and respectfully re-imagine them, by infusing modern California accents. Sushi chefs and the kitchen staff derive their inspiration from each other resulting in creations like the signature Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna); the Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crabmeat is wrapped in a thin rice crepe paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection.

Outstanding Japanese restaurant. Food out of this world, really first class service, vibrant atmosphere and creative decor. If you like Japanese food you will love Koi not cheap but not outrageous.

Enjoyed dinner here on our last night in LA and couldn't speak more highly of Koi... Service was sensational and with food to match. We enjoyed the Wagyu Carpaccio, Kobi style Fillet Mingion and the Quinoa Croquettes, all of of which were superb

My sister and I went here for our first LA area dinner. Very cool atmosphere and excellent food-the crispy rice/eggplant to die for. So amazing. Our waiter was incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful but about halfway through the meal kind of disappeared which was odd. You will spend a chunk of change but if you want great food and a...

Spent NYE at Koi with a group of friends and I must say, the service was excellent and so was the food! We had the chef bring out a variety of dishes since we all decided to share food. Our waiter separated our food and alcohol bill since we had a large group. What a great idea because it made... More

I've been here once but will definitely come back when I am in LA again. I was able to make a reservation for the same day and was seated immediately at an excellent table outside. The waiters were very friendly and, very important, the food was wonderful. A lesser point was the constant crying of a baby at a table... More
