The restaurant's atmosphere makes it easy to recreate that experience with a plethora of dining options at the bar, dining room, both upstairs and down, so you've covered whether you're just having a night out with your friends, an intimate date, or trying to impress someone on business.

Filled with apple, cucumber, kiwi, and karashi-miso ginger dressing, the Sockeye Salmon has a wasabi kick to it that will clear your sinuses and make you tear up a little bit--in a good way. The crunch of the greens combined with the hella fresh salmon made for one unforgettable roll.
The Tempura Butterfish was made with Alaskan king crab, salmon, butterfish, avocado, cucumber, and tobiko with tempura crust. While still noticeably much better than your typical tempura sushi, it disappeared into the abyss of tempura sushi we've had before and paled next to the Sockeye Salmon.

The wait staff are incredibly friendly and helpful--they make sure you're not left in the dark while you pretend that you know what every word on the menu actually means. They're incredibly accommodating and despite being a nicer place, they're also refreshingly laid-back. If you're looking for a lovely evening, Ki has the food, atmosphere, and service to make it one.
