Our waitress was excellent. Very knowledgeable about both the food and wine menu. We were there for a long lunch and didn’t feel rushed, or pressured to leave. The food was fabulous!

There was something quite odd about the Dynamite roll that I ordered- there was some sort of butter/lard type substance on it. Disappointed as this is usually a very reliable restaurant.

First night out in Toronto on vacation with my girlfriend. Food was absolutely excellent, ambience was great, and service was spectacular. Every single dish we had was unique and so delicious. So glad we booked this place. Would love to come back next time we’re in Toronto.

Great food, great ambiance, fantastic server. Went there with my wife for lunch just before Christmas. It was our first time and there were some many interesting items on the menu so we let our server pick for us. Every dish she brought out was delicious. She checked in with us a few time to make sure we that we still wanted more. At one point we were brought a dish that was meant for another table. Our server didn't charge us for that dish.

All-in it cost us about $100 including two glasses of wine. Even if we'd had to pay for the extra dish it might have been $115. Still very good value.

Everything you could ask for: great food, and great service.

Went to Ki before a concert at the Sony Center, which is an easy walk. The sake was good, the spicy tuna and spicy salmon on rice cakes were very good, wagyu was not up to expectations, but still good, and the shrimp tempura was positively excellent.

Went for a last minute dinner at KI Saturday evening. We were greeted promptly and sat at a booth. The server advised us on a few questions and provided recommendations for what to get. The food came quickly and was amazing! Will be going back for more!

Terrible service. Place was practically empty and service for drinks and order taking was very slow. Had to get up from table to ask waitress to take dessert order. We asked for assistance in amount of food to order. We should have been advised to order more dishes for 4 people for dinner. She said to keep a menu in case we wanted to order more food but never came back to ask if we wanted additional items. I am still hungry which is disappointing as food tasted delicious just would have liked more.

Sushi fish was fresh and well-prepared. Ambience was much more Western than I am used to in a Japanese restaurant, including furniture, dishes, wait staff, etc. It was a bit too Western for me. Perhaps because I lived 9 years of my life in Japan.

Ki is the Japanese word for Air; Atmosphere; Flavor; Heart; Mind; Spirit; Feelings; Humor and Intention
AND
All of these are certainly embodied in this Venue.
From the warm greeting at the front of house and prompt seating; to the excellent food and service.

Our Server (Lindsey) is to be commended for her knowledge of the menu and for suggesting the
wine to complement the various food selections.

The Sushi orders were perfect for sharing and enhanced the experience of our business meeting.

Very impressive on all levels.

BRAVO !

とてもセンスの良いお店でした。
また、アサヒやキリンのビールや日本の焼酎、ほうじ茶や玄米茶が飲めるのはとても良かったです。
大人3人で270ドル位でした。他の日本食レストランも悪くはないのですが、殆どがファストフード的なお店です。値段的に頻繁に行くことはないかもしれませんが、何かの記念や誰かを招待するのにはとても良いお店だと思います。

Food is good, service is very good, and the modern decor is very welcoming. I would say it is a bot over-priced but still a worthwhile dining experience.

I use to love going to KI. I could depend on good service and great food. The past couple of visits the food has been mediocre and the service spotty. After this last visit KI has fallen off my all together. Disappointing.

Right from the moment we entered the restaurant the service was lacking, slow, poor attitude, not even a thank you when paying for a bill that was $500 for three people. The food was mediocre at best and certainly not much value for the prices.

We had Jamie as our server again and she was wonderful! She remembered me from my last time in, and she even remembered my many allergys and what i ordered last time (over 2 months ago!) which made my experience very easy and enjoyable so i didnt have to worry! Amazing food and service - hope next time I come back I get served by her again she is the best!

We went purely based on the reviews and were slightly disappointed considering. Maybe we didn't order the right items, but given the high marks and amount of reviews, we had very high expectations.
