We love Koi in New York, and LA is equally as terrific. One big delight on the menu is the salmon carpaccio. But don't miss the braised short rib! Crazy choice with so much great fish? Think again! It is delicious and a must-try!

The food is amazing in this japonese restaurant. We ordered completely randomly and everything that came was marvelous. The waiters are all nice and very helpful. Totally worth the high prices.

I've visited Koi twice and have had a great experience both times. It has great food and service, and I've had better meals at Koi than its cross-street competitor, Nobu. The sushi rolls are consistently good as is their sashimi. There's a tremendous amount of variety on their menu, but the waiters are very helpful with the selections. I also... More

Over rated Japanese restaurant with good quality overpriced dishes with fancy names that have nothing fancy about them. Service is good, decor is modern but the food is good not excellent.

This is a hot-spot in West Hollywood where celebrities even go. The sushi and lobster tacos were amazing. It was very-LA if you're looking for that scene.

I had booked a dinner for one, expecting a cold shoulder in such a popular and trendy place. I couldn't have been more wrong! The welcome was warm and genuinly friendly! I was seated in the sushi bar and chose "omakase" (an improvised tasting menu) and the chef Aki prepared me a great feast - piece by piece, each being... More

We arrived without a booking on a very busy Saturday evening and were made very comfortable at the bar where the service was very friendly and efficient. After 30 minutes we were seated in a very buzzy and busy restaurant. Our server and was really helpful and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back.

We ate there on a Sunday night and the place was buzzing. Each dish we had was fantastic, service was great, beautiful design, great people watching, and even loved the techno music. Can't wait to return.

We were able to walk in and get a table right away mid week. The interior design is so beautiful, dim lighting, soothing colors, rich woods. We seemed a bit different from the average customer who all seemed to know to wear only black. Then we realized the wait staff too were dressed in all black. But for fun, we... More

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.
