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 crab meat is wrapped in a thin rice 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.

This place rocks! It provided a romantic ambience for couples celebrating hearts day. The food, although pricey, was really yum! Totally worth it! I tired Koi in Las Vegas for one of new year's eve and got the same food experience - Excellent!

I had dinner here recently. I opted for three of the Koi special dishes - the tuna tartare with jalapenos, the stick rice and the lobster tacos. All were really delicious and the lobster tacos were superb. Service was fast and friendly. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.

The best soup I ever had in my life. Food and service at its best. I will strongly recommend for friends. Shrimp was so tender and juicy with their best sauce.

I can find fresher sushi for half the price in Houston. The atmosphere is very nice, so you are paying extra for it. The food is average as well as the service.

The food was great and the service ok, but the place is very noisy, do not go there if you need a quiet place, but go there if you want a great Japanese food!

Koi is consistent and that is always a plus for restaurants. I eat at their sister Koi in West Hollywood, CA regularly. The NYC version is equally delicious. Sexy lighting and sleek design compliment beautifully crafted sushi and other delights.

This is a pretty restaurant in a beautiful building, with beautifully presented food. The sushi was delicious, as was the seared salmon. It was a little too slow getting seated (we had reservations) and getting our order in, requiring us to cancel the appetizers we had hoped to have, since we were rushing to the theater. Otherwise, it was great.
