When the edamame arrives uncooked, that should be a sign to not pass go, and don't pay the $200 for this. Although there were a few good dishes, we had to send back the yellowtail and oysters because of a smell it should not have. And some dishes were just not that flavorful.... For the $ we spent just for appetizers and lots of booze ($600 for 6 peeps) I would get a keg of kirin, a jug of sake and order everything on the menu elsewhere.

We were there last week for dinner and the restaurant definitely lived up to the hype. The crispy rice with spicy tuna was to die for, it was melt in your mouth delicious. We had an assortment of rolls and they were all delish! However, the price is expensive. It's great if on someone else's dime but if you're going on your own, be prepared for the check!

Great for lunch meetings. The required reservations keep the crowds down and makes it easy to navigate with your guests. Food just as good as LA and the service is accomodating without the LA tude. Don't know about the night scene, but it's definitely on my regular list for lunch.

The food was really good, creative, and the sushi very fresh. However, almost everything is overpriced for the portion that you get. Overall it is worth it though if you are looking for a trendy scene in a nice restaurant. Also, you need a reservation to get in the door which makes it less crowded and enjoyable.

I was invited to dinner here by some uptown friends and was glad they did b/c I never would go to a place like this otherwise. The interior is beautiful of course and it's flush with tonied clientele and they're sumptuous dates. We were a group of 5 and found our way to the couches in the lounge area where we had great sushi and drinks. Our table took a while to get but I wasn't uncomfortable waiting. Once there the staff was cool and professional. The food was really good and worth every penny (had the miso cod). Ended up being $100 per person...not too bad by this city's standards these days. Would recommend this place if that's your scene and wallet. Also, there's a club downstairs...not cool at all. Though, the female staff is gorgeous. Not sure who had the balls to ask them to wear the bustier, boots and mini skirts that is the "uniform" but thanks.

I can't compare this Koi to the one in LA, but I do know that I went there for dinner the other night, and was not disappointed one bit!

Food is amazing. Service is still getting into swing - - not yet up to par with the west coast location. But it's close and getting there!
