    You pay for the atmosphere

    If you are not from California or Hawaii then you will think this is good sushi. Frankly it was OK. They so do not know how to do hand rolls. Portions are very small. Would not go again unless someone else was paying. Not worth $$$.

    Excellent food, once again at Koi!

    I have been to Koi about 7 times. I surprise myself each time I go, because the food is always better than I remembered from the last. I especially like the popcorn shrimp, and the hangar steak; both are superb. I have tried every item on the menu, and each dish is a taste delight. I highly recommend Koi.

    Best Japanese in NYC

    I have been to Koi several times and every time I go, the food gets even better. The food is great tasting and the quality of the food is stellar. Personal favorites of mine include the crunch spicy tuna and the baked crab roll.

    An Unforgettable Night

    My friend Jenn took me to Koi to celebrate my move to NYC from CA. It was my first decent meal in the city, and I have to say it's a meal I will never forget. The atmosphere was fantastic. Very sleek, slick, modern midtown coolness. I felt a bit underdressed, although I was dressed hip and cool, it's still a bit fancier than I expected. So dress nicely when you go there. Look hot. Period. I have to mention the crispy spicy tuna. This was probably the single best sushi item I have ever eaten. I don't know exactly how they did it, but if I were to guess I'd say they put a bit of the sweet eel sauce into a hot pan and seared the bottoms of the rice pieces. Then piled the most tender and tastiest spicy tuna in the history of ever on top of it. So when you bit into this creation it's sweet, spicy, soft, chewy and crunchy all together. Everything else was great, but that took the cake for sure. OH, and the chocolate fondue for dessert. I spent more money than I've ever spent on a dinner before, but everything was perfect, the girls at the table next to us were talking to us so we made new friends there. The cabernet was lovely. All in all, best restaurant I've been to so far in NY. I definitely recommend you go and at LEAST just get the crunchy spicy tuna appetizer, if nothing else.

    Great overall

    I have eaten at Koi many times and have rarely been disappointed. The sushi is great, my favorites are the baked crab hand rolls or the special they often have which is the double shrimp roll. The tuna tartare is small but if you like this dish, it's great at Koi. The entrees are nice, I think the lamb chops are the best way to go, especially for guys. I do not recommend the chicken! The place does get overly crowded most nights, and expect to wait or "grab a drink" even with a reservation. That being said, there's always a scene and it's great for people-watching. Koi is definitely on the expensive side but I think definitely worth it! Everyone is super nice and the ambience is great!

    Could the portions get any smaller?

    The food at Koi is good competitive Asian-fusion fare, but the portions are simply absurd. It is a restaurant where you can spend nearly $200 per person and leave feeling starving. It's a very frustrating experience. Six months ago this place had massive crowds and a huge bar scene and much of that seems to have died down. It would be wise for them to modify their portion sizes/prices a bit to regenerate interest.

    Too cramped and too much salt!

    This was my 3rd or 4th time there and my first time there for lunch. The tables are on top of eachother- way too close. 2 of the 4 of us got hot entrees while the other 2 had sushi. Sushi is great but the hot food was way too salty and even buttery?! We had to buy liters of water on the way back to the office. I am done with this place!
