Surprised to see hair in the food but the server replaced it right away. However, we should not be charged for the plate.

Always a pleasure attending Ki in Toronto. It doesn't matter who your server is: the entire team is extremely professional! We had Darrell serve us this time and he was absolutely fantastic! Definitely check out Ki if you are in Toronto!

Arrived exactly on time, and seated in front of doorway to patio. Made for drafty environment.

After exactly 10 minutes I walked over to the bar and asked for our waitress. A minute later she showed up. Literally 11 minutes from the time we were seated.

We ordered a bottle of wine and asked to be seated on the side of the lounge, which was done. No issues there.

Waitress brought the wine and we ordered immediately. We received our appetizers in a timely fashion, but it was 57 minutes from the time we were seated until the time our mains arrived!

For the price of sushi at Ki, I expect substantially better service. I informed the waitress as soon as she brought the main dish that I needed the bill right away, as we had to be at a theater down the road shortly after.

After a 10 minute wait, I had to get up from my table, walk over to the waitress and remind her that I had asked her for a bill 10 minutes earlier. She replied that she was sorry and she never heard me. Not once during this one hour plus dinner did she check on us to see if we were enjoying our meal. Service wise, it was a disaster from the minute we arrived.

There’s better places to spend my $250...especially downtown. I’ve been to Ki at least 20 times in the past eight years, but this is my last.

Servers, pay attention to your guests.

I come to Ki almost once a week because I like the food, drinks and ambience but I'm usually disappointed in the service. Last Friday I had to wait more than 10 mins before my server came to the table. I was also ready to order when I was seated and the host did not want to take my order saying that the server was going to come soon (which she didn't as I was waiting there and was almost going directly to the bar to get my drink). The server did not come check on the table regularly either.

Service was excellent and food was good. I thought the restaurant itself was looking a little tired and worn. I was a regular patron 10+ years ago and could see the wear and tear. We still had a great time and really enjoyed the food.
In terms of value, we found it on the pricey side compared to other places where the quality of food is equal or better

Amazing food. Ki is the greatest mix of traditional and modern Japanese infused dining I’ve had and puts up a great fight with the Nobu chain. Also the sake collection is absolutely outstanding!

Yet another great dining experience at Ki.

A business meeting with an important Client from Ireland; who was very impressed with the Food and Service.
Many thanks to Ms. O'Malley who runs a very efficient service at the Main Bar and took care of us and
made our visit very memorable.

The Salmon was fresh and cooked to perfection.

BRAVO !

Our overall experience at Ki was simply excellent, by all the important metrics. Service. principally by Jamie and Darryl, heightened and complimented the quality of the food preparation, the combining of traditional and innovative elements on the menu, and the obvious freshness and quality of the ingredients.
Ki is by no means overpriced for what they deliver. Authentic Japanese waaabi - yes. Actual Japanese wagyu beef - check.
I can't single out individual dishes, and we had several, because they all rose to a certain standard of excellence, and consequently nothing stood out as a weakness.
Highly recommended - if you enjoy fine Japanese cuisine, just get yourself to Ki.

Great service and food but this is the third time have been seated at a horrible table when the place is empty. We always make a reservation through open table but it seems Ki wants the first people to sit where they can be seen?? I don’t make a reservation to sit in the hallway on the sushi bar!

I hate asking to move but ... will be specific about where I would like to sit from now on.
