“Poor service.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We came in for a light meal. The waiter practically ignored us after we didn't order the more elaborate items on the menu he suggested. A very odd and unpleasant experience.

“Great Nightlife”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We were walking by this restaurant on a Saturday night. We heard some good music and saw a sign that said lounge upstairs.

To our surprise, the atmosphere and music was great! I would visit again.

“Great sushi and thai food in the Gables”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We were there on Wednesday night and they had live music-Jazz, which was a real treat during dinner. We ordered the Red Dragon roll, the Spider roll and several pieces of sashimi and a green salad. Everything was very fresh and very well prepared. We chose it sit outside, the restaurant is located on Miracle Mile, and the weather was perfect. Great food, music, and weather, what else could you ask for. Red Koi has been located on the Mile for several years so their food must be pretty good to have the restaurant stick around that long. It is located right next to Seasons 52 which is very popular restaurant and it has not seemed to hurt the business of this small restaurant, so they must be doing something right. Our server was named Carlos and he was attentive even when the restaurant was getting busy, which seems to be a rarity in Miami.

“Miracle Mile Sushi delight”
Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

With the both indoor and outdoor seating that is comfortable and intimate, this was a relaxing place for my wife and I to have a midweek date. Our waiter, Mario, gave us excellent suggestions and wonderful service. The food was very good. I especially liked the Santini role. They also have a Seabass dinner, on occasion, that is one of the best. A jazz band performed, outdoors, on a Wednesday night. It was unexpected pleasant surprise. We went to this restaurant because we had a Groupon deal. Smart move for the restaurant because it introduced us to a fun place to which we will return. We are telling our friends. Head to Coral Gables and make this your stop
