Description: 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.

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

Just got back from a week in LA and ate at Koi twice. Wandered in not knowing anything about the restaurant on a Tuesday night. Got seated immediately at a table, looked over the menu and was surprised that they did not have a entry of omakase on the menu. Said it anyways. What I received was some of the... More

I've been about 10 times, and never once was there not some celebrity there, usually I see a famous comedian. A few times paparazzi where located outside. So it is quite a scene. And the food is great too - I love the salmon truffle dish, MMMMMMMM Setting is great, I've always had good service. Yes, it's pricey, but in... More

Wow, this is an amazing restaurant. The best sushi we have had in a long time, and our waitress was amazing, she went through the various specials and made our evening one of the best. This is a great restaurant, fantastic service and food,

We came here for dinner during our holiday having heard it's a top spot in LA and we not disappointed at all. We booked in advance and got a nice booth table indoors (I would perhaps in future ask for an outside table). The food was delicious and the service was excellent. My husband isn't a huge Sushi fan but... More

Loved the sushi at West Hollywood's long-popular Koi. Great setting, great service, and some of the best sashimi I've ever had (and I've had a lot). Ask for a table in their patio area for extra ambiance.

We look forward to Koi after reading some reviews and because we like Japanese fusion food and we weren't disappointed. The food was awesome. We stayed one month in the USA, for holiday, and this was the best food we've eaten and we did a lot of good restaurants. We started with a cocktail, the gentleman and the lychee cosmo,... More
