The food was decent but my pet peeve is slow service. Took a while to get greeted but even longer to pay. It honestly took about 10 minutes of sitting there to even get the check.

Koi's sushi is fresh and very well made. The drinks are good, the service was great, and they were really accommodating. The appetizers are really good (we had edamame and these spicy tuna things) and the food came out really fast. Would come back.

4 of us went for dinner June 27th, just arrived in NYC. The waiter made a few recommendations and they were all great. The food was fresh, tasted great and the atmosphere was wonderful. Would go back again.

Traveling with a large group of girlfriends, we went to a show and then a late dinner at Koi! That was the BEST time we had while in the city! Food was fabulous, the drinks were off the chain and the staff were so accommodating. Definitely will go back when in New York.

My husband and I were in NYC for Memorial day weekend to celebrate our friends’ recent engagement. We had a large group dinner at Koi, about 12 of us. They were very accommodating. I was about 29 weeks pregnant at the time so I can’t comment on the sushi or the cocktails but many of our friends ordered those items... More
