A very vibrant scene. Very noisy if you want to talk I suggest avoiding the bar area. The service wasn’t great. Water refill was absent. The food is very good and the portion size is appropriate. I was satisfied but no overly full. There is a very nice patio

Excellent food and service at Ki Bar. Most of the time I just have one client but they usually provide a nice comfortable booth upon request. More room for food. I usually skip on the entrees and just order a whole table of apps. I've frequented Ki Bar so many times I have the menu memorised. Great food !

We have dined here many times in the past but i must say the food was awful, there was a hair in our edamame, the shrimp were over cooked, waygu beef overly salted and sushi rolls awful. Sad to say the restaurant has gone downhill and We will not be returning in the future.

Fabulous!!! The market price Otoro is well worth the money, honestly I’ve never seen or tasted tuna quite like that. Melts in your mouth! The butterfish roll and the hamachi jalapeño was also fantastic!

Well worth the money and drive. Great for before a concert or hockey game at Scotiabank Arena.

This restaurant is top notch and never fails to disappoint. I love being able to say, "Bring enough food for 2 people," and getting a really interesting and delicious chef's selection of items I would never have dreamed to order. I highly, highly recommend this restaurant.

Ki is usually busy so be sure to book some tables are quieter than others so if you want quiet -ask for it. The Sushi bar is generally good place to sit if there are 2 to 3. Menu offers some interesting options the lunch menus is quick of in an hurry

I have lots of allergys (dairy, eggs, gluten) and was a little nervous to eat here as i have had bad reactions to restaurants before. Our server made me feel at ease and brought out a list of every allergy ingredient in each menu item so I knew for sure and we could find things I could eat. every server who brought out my food also knew of my allergys and confirmed with me. I felt very accommodated here. Many options for me and they seemed happy to help :) Delicious food! Very modern food but also have ‘traditional’ options. The miso soup is incredible! I will be returning for more sushi soon!

This was our second time having dinner to celebrate my birthday.
Ambiance is great. Our server was friendly. He suggested a couple of appetizers of which we enjoyed spicy avocado with pineapple sushi.
Black cod was tasty but the portion was small. My husband ordered tiger shrimp main and we shared the sweet potato wedges. Both we’re delicious. To end on a sweet note out server got us some chocolates on the house. Thanks so much. Great experience. Will be back soon.

The food and atmosphere was amazing. It was not a restaurant that was on the top sushi places in Toronto when looking around, but for quality and freshness of sushi for price is definitely worth it. We had two types of tuna and a salmon plus a healthy bowl and I could not have been more pleased with all. They have a large selection of beverages and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. A lot of servers to fill up your water constantly and clear the tables. Highly recommend for any occasion and will be going again soon!

It seems that your choice of vegetarian options varies depending on the wait staff you get. If I'm lucky, the staff know I can order a vegetarian sushi platter. If I am not lucky, then I end up having to pick a bunch of a la carte options which get me more food (and most cost!) than I want. Consistency of experience in this regard would be a great change!

Our first time at Ki and what a fabulous experience! From attentive wait staff, to wine menu and of course the food, every need was met. They ensured to ask re allergies and modified any item to ensure there was no exposure to shellfish. This is how a high end restaurant should be run and experienced. Special shout out to our server Jamie who went above and beyond to ensure we had the best time. Loved the treats at the end. Definitely try a bit of everything, of special note were the beef tatatki, beef short ribs and the torched salmon rolls.

My wife and I really enjoy Ki. We always come on our anniversary. The sushi is creative and delicious and fresh! The appetizers are also delicious. The ambiance and service is amazing. During the day it is a great place for business meetings/meals and is more lively. In the evening, it is very romantic, in the middle of downtown and walking distance to Harbourfront. Looking forward to our next visit!
