What a special night! From the moment you sit down to the final morsel passes your palate, you are in for a treat. Each dish is prepared with such thought and chemistry. I highly recommend enjoying their wine pairing. It's a splurge, but well worth it. We had about 10 or so small dishes in all. The suckling pig and roasted goat entrees had us making mini pita sandwiches and eating with our hands. Loved the little dipping sauces. What the chef does with scallops, foie gras, chocolate (not all in same dish) is sublime. The service is fantastic. I'm out of superlatives. Just go and treat your taste buds. Be sure to think ahead and make a reservation a couple of weeks in advance. They do not accept parties larger than four.

Komi has impeccable service and attention to detail. Unfortunately, the menu was not very impressive. Not having a pre-selected menu is a great idea, however that night must have been the night for salty dishes. The presentation was fantastic but the taste was disappointing. I kept waiting for the "it" dish but it never arrived. Overall, it was a disappointing experience, yet I feel I should go back and try again. Perhaps a different night...different menu...

KOMI is unlike anything else. The food is beyond excellent, service always impeccable and ambience: a soothing minimalist escape. We have been dining at KOMI for several years and it only keeps getting better. It is worth the wait and struggle to get a reservation. Dining is a celebration and an unforgettable culinary experience for those who know great food and can appreciate the quality of the ingredients and the artistic genius of the chef in every delicacy on the plate and palate. Just incredible. There are very few upscale restaurants in the DC/VA area. There is one and only KOMI. Nothing comes close.

(Please note: there is no Bar Scene or Outdoor Seating, but this site does not offer the option to remove all 5 dots without reducing the overall rating of the restaurant)

I decided to take a friend out for a celebratory dinner after hearing great things and we were not disappointed. The portions are perfectly sized for tasting and they were happy to accommodate my nut allergy. Service was on par with what you expect from this level of restaurant.

We also don't understand the hype about this restaurant. The ambience is not very special, the portions so small that you don't really get a chance to experience the different flavors, the wine pairing seemed rather random and its definitely not worth the price. I am a petite woman and was still hungry after this meal. The ratio between wine and food served was not ok either, we ended up being drunk but hungry. That was not the idea for this evening. Next time we will go back to the inn at little washington instead!
