I went there a few times recently at lunch time. I had various sashimis, sushis and rolls and they were all delicious. I recommend specifically the oil/butter fish (called escolar) and their hamachi with jalapeño. I went once with a group and the waiter just brought us many different plates, from sushis to beef, chicken skewers and veggies. If you... More

We were staying at the Westin hotel which is next door to this restaurant and needed a place for a light meal and drink. We sat in the lounge area and were happy to hear that it was Happy Hour with good prices on wine and appies. I am vegetarian and unfortunately there was nothing on the appies list that... More

I've walked by Ki many times as it's by the Downtown Westin and lots of office towers. Despite its large size, I rarely see anyone eating there. The menu looked good, so worth a shot. Service was fast, menu had traditional Japanese fare, plus sushi and sashimi, although everything I ordered had some type of sauce or ingredient that made... More

I went there at lunch time and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sushis and service received. The waitress offered us delicious hamachi as a taster. It was very fresh, served as sashimi (and well cut) w a jalapeño pepper on top. Just the perfect balance of spicy whilst still tasting the fish! All the sashimi we had... More

Happy hour is from about 4 to 7PM. During that period, customers are given two menus. One is a happy hour menu with low priced small plates. The second menu has higher regular priced small plates. The two of us ordered a total of four small plates. The beef sliders were fantastic. The other items were excellent. The downside of... More

Yes they offer good quality food but too pricey. I have been to many Japanese restaurants but Ki is the most expensive sushi place ever.

Really enjoyed the food and the service was attentive but best described as robotic. The atmosphere was sterile despite the high end surrounding and set up. The interaction with the staff was professional enough but something missing. The venue and food are the attraction but not somewhere I would go out of my way to visit again.

The food, atmosphere, and service were okay -- but no more than okay. What was not okay was the bill: $50 per person for lunch, with no drinks other than sparkling water. Whatever this place is trying to be, it doesn't pull it off, and I'm not sure it's even trying very hard.

Some of the best modern Japanese cruising we have ever tasted. Fantastic service from staff, excellent menu choices. Food cooked to perfection. At the higher end price wise but definitely worth every cent
