Rich earth tones of orange, red and brown impart warmth to the cool and tranquil space. 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.

A classy, wonderful place to go for a romantic diner. Everything is made to serve you in the most perfect way. Service, seating, food, drinks and wine. The all atmosphere is refined and luxurious. Possibly expensive, but relatively worth every dollar spent there. And once again, the Bryant Hotel is my favorite...

Really great sushi place. Good management. They walk the floor and check up on customers. Asked about my allergies just to be sure. Waitress made great suggestions on the food. It is all on the pricer side but you get great food and great service with it. Ambiance is also good. Clean and modern.

It was barely 5pm on a Wednesday night and they were packed. The drinks were great, but we did not eat so I cannot speak on the food. However, the atmosphere was so fun and seemed as if everyone was enjoying their sushi.

Incredibly good food and an incredibly knowledgeable server. We ate in the lounge in a white oval booth facing the window. The wine, sushi and sake were superb.

Ordered sushi roles, which were very tasty, particularly liked the eel. Mains of cod and ribs. Ribs not great and super expensive. Miso Cod very tasty but the slimy skin is an acquired taste. Staff friendly but drinks seriously overpriced and watered down. 3.5 stars. Probably will not return

The spicy tuna hand rolls are heaven sent and the miso glazed cod is a party per bite. We tried the lobster tacos, the wagyu gyozas and the jalapeño yellowtail...what can I say, looking forward to coming back to try more delicacies from the menu.

Brought clients here many times and always had a great experience. Excellent sushi. Also excellent options for not 100% sushi eaters. For those just starting to eat sushi, they have excellent cooked sushi dishes.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
