“One bite is enough ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Had an outstanding meal here on July 27th. Food lives up to the buzz. Lots of little bites, each one taking you to a new place. Wine pairing, and sommelier, one of my favorite parts of this experience. Very very good food, good service. Minimalist approach to decor - nothing to distract you from the food. Except the noise level. Surprising.

“Please turn down the noise!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Indeed interesting food, but Citronelle (if it were still open) would swim circles around Komi. The main problem, however, is the ambiance. The place is so loud that one has to forget an intimate dinner, or even a basic conversation. The noise is comparable to that of a loud sports bar without the TVs and a much bigger check.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Loved everything about this place even though it is expensive. Totally worth the money for special occasion though. Small portions, feel full but not stuffed. Loved their rabbit liver mousse.Will definitely come back

“A ballet from start to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We love to eat at truly great restaurants, but we have recently stopped going so much, as we have been consistently disappointed. Not so at Komi. We were lucky enough to get off the waiting list to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I love that there is such a team approach here - although service is spectacular, it seems to be no big deal, because it's just done....by someone...at some point....while you were talking, or eating, or talking about eating some more. I just can't get over how well they do EVERYTHING. Definitely worth getting the wine pairing if you're a drinker. Will have to try to go back each season to see what's new!

“disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

It used to be the place to go to have out of this world food... some of the dishes are excellent, but others are a total miss. It lacks the raffinesse that it had two or three years ago. At $150 a person, it should be a lot more refined from start to finish.
