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!

Although there was a lot of outside seating available, they made us wait so long to be seated that by the time they got back to us, the outside seating was taken. We stood in the middle of the restaurant for almost 10 minutes waiting for someone to get back to us on seating. Very disappointing. Food and drinks were excellent, though.

I did not realize how much difference professional waitress can make. The level of staff and service is outstanding.

Unlike cheesy Bay Street steak houses/pubs nearby the wait staff at Ki consist of fully dressed adults, who do not attempt to ‘befriend’ you, only to mix up your order 5 min later.

Ki waitress we had was incredibly discreet yet somewhat magically always available when we needed her.

Other than awesome staff. Food, ambience, value and location are good.

Adding decent vegetarian options to the menu would be a good next step for Ki. I always have to scramble for an option and it varies depending on the wait staff I get.

Food was great, servers were helpful, Bay St is loud (this is normal). Spent 4hrs having dinner with family and service was attentive for the whole time. Very accommodating of dietary restrictions and requests for alterations.

Everytime I go there with my family they never fail to impress. The food and the quality is just amazing! I keep hearing from people in the city that it was much better in the past. But I haven't ordered a plate that is even mediocre. Whenever I have visitors, this is the place to go for me.

Ki was delicious! The sushi is very unique, containing flavors I've never tried before in Japanese cuisine. It was a late lunch for my boyfriend and I, and we sat inside and it was very quiet around that time. There was world cup soccer playing on the bar TVs, and a few groups there for what looked like business lunches. The outdoor seating and bar area was very attractive as well, I'd like to sit out there next time. Great service, and the chocolate truffle cake dessert was to die for. We'll definitely be back!

Had a very nice evening meal with my wife, she had a lovely cocktail as we sat in the outside seating which is lovely. I had 3 different sushsi which was delicious, ambient atmosphere, very comfortable and will certainly be heading back.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our dinner. I am Japanese who grew up in Tokyo and has lived in Boston > 2 decades. The food, particularly sushi, was authentic and very delicious. Our server Lindsay S. was super efficient and nice. The ambience was also wonderful because of a beautiful interior design with floor-to-ceiling windows. We will be back when visiting Toronto next time!

Ki is undoubtedly the best dining experience I've had in Toronto. The food was incredible, the space was well designed but the true star of the restaurant is Jaimee. She really went above and beyond and I will now measure any future servers against her impossibly high standards.

We were warmly greeted at the door for our 6pm reservation and graciously shown to our table, which was in a “riser” on the north side of the restaurant. Giant windows permitted a view of Ki’s patio and further, onto Bay and Wellington streets as the sun set unobtrusively thru the surrounding gaps between the city’s high rises.

Arik, the attendant server of the evening was charismatic, attentive, knowledgeable and funny! Very capable within his profession. He tag-teamed with Blanca, a supremely competent and friendly S.A. who regaled us with light stories of Spain, her hometown while paying detailed maintenance of everything table-side. She knew a thing or two about wine, too.

Finally, Nurali, the Hospitality Manager of Ki night capped our party with a round of Kijoushu, a chilled, aged and uncommon sake which tasted reminiscent of Port. This he paired with Ki’s delectable house chocolate truffles.

Ki never disappoints. Once again, marvellous job done to everyone involved!

The vegetable tempura and the shrimp tempura were poorly prepared. If I were expecting this level of quality of tempura, I wouldn't spend such an amount for them in a decent restaurant like Ki. The shrimp were over-cooked to a level they were so dry and so were all the vegetables. I'm disappointed as I've been to your restaurant a few times. Most of the time I found it enjoyable both the atmosphere and the food. I'll definitely give it another try, hope to have the good experience I had before.
