Had a great meal. Only bad thing was we felt rushed by the server. Appetizers and main courses were good. Cheesecake dessert tasted weird.

A truly epicurean fine dining experience, worthy of repeat visits. From the pleasant greeting at the front of the house, to strolling through the elegantly laid out room, to being seated in a lovely private area, to the genuinely friendly and engaging server, he was an absolute delight who made me laugh out loud which was a nice way to...

My wife and I, together with our two daughters, two son-in-laws, and two grandchildren, have the pleasure of recently dining at the Ki. We were happy to rate the food as excellent, the wait-staff first rate and the price, not out of line for a big City. The place was packed on a Thursday afternoon so we were not the... More

Enjoyed the spicy Edamame, the eel sushi and the ahi tuna . A nice office crowd is attracted to this financial district watering hole. Service is very attentive and courteous.

Love the nice and quiet ambience. We ordered few dishes and some were quite special, otherwise the rest were quite ordinary. Quite an extensive range of alcoholic beverage & cocktails menu. Service very good.

This time we sat at the sushi bar and scored! Service was exceptional and the dishes innovative. This is expensive Japanese food and should not be confused with usual sushi and such. Each dish is well thought out and prepared with incredible attention to detail. Try the pork belly and beef short ribs.

I think Ki used to be better in prior years, but their lunch is delicious and comes out quick. It's quite expensive for what you get, but great location to have a lunch in financial district and their sushi is quite good for what you can find in the downtown core.

I remember coming to Ki when it first opened like 12 years ago and it was really fresh and innovative. The menu was excellent and service was great. After going dozens of times over the years it remains a constant fixture for the Bay Street financial crowd which is part of the problem. Thursdays are crowded with suits and the... More

Nice and elegant venue to dine, conduct business or just converse over good food. The atmosphere (subdued and dimly lit) adds to the "coolness" of the place. The food is very good --- my bento sushi platter was delicious and moderately priced. Service was OK.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
