This place is terrific. It has great views of the Cardiff beaches and sunset. The food is healthy and tastes amazing with a diverse menu that has something for everyone. The service was second to none, and this is a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
We were 20 minutes late for our reservation and they seated us anyway within 10 minutes. The petite fillet dinner was wonderful, just cooked as we asked along with real mashed potatoes, parsnips, carrots and a delicious gravy. We also came to hear Peter Sprague and were delighted with the music. It was a great evening.
Nice dinner - Brie and mango appetizer was great - loved the porkchop
Super friendly place -nice menu and fantastic service.
and yes Awesome views !!!
Wonderful dishes...just the right portion, unique, healthy and full of flavor. Great service...warm, friendly and efficient. And can’t forget the great view! Highly recommend!
You get a gorgeous view of the sunset over the ocean during dinner. The service is always amazing. The food is delicious and prepared with care. They also have wonderful Cadillac margaritas. I love going here with my family and with my co-workers. Ki's is one of my favorite restaurants of all time. Be sure to try it!
Ocean view casual dining - great food, great drinks, amazing view. We usually come for lunch which is also amazing but this was dinner - sit down/order off menu. Delish.
Food was really so amazing! Awesome server with such area and food related knowledge! And the desserts were the best! I'll come back here over and over.
For the price I thought there should be better ambiance. The food was good, but not noteworthy. We did enjoy the ocean breeze and the ocean view.
Loved the food. Loved the staff. Loved our waiter. Loved the sunset.
it was sooooo loud we could not hear the music, which is why we came. Some food was very spicy w/o being labled as such. I had the seafood special which was tough, expensive and not very flavorful. The curry was good. We were told that we could have requested to be in the music room; I did when we arrived, but were not accommodated. Later, after we ate w/o conversation due to din, a waitress made us a space in the music area.
Yummy food and prices are great!! Out on the deck with a glass of wine and an hordes and this is the place to be at sunset.
Wonderful food has steak done perfectly my friend has salmon also great. Upper dining room looks at the ocean across the street .Most weekends music from 7:30 to 9:30
This is a nice place because of the views. The food is nice. Nothing SPECTACULAR.
I love going here and relaxing on the patio.
The problem I have REPEATEDLY experienced is YOU ARE NEVER PREPARED WITH EXTRA STAFF whem it is NECESSARY
I am. Consumer and I know it.
Why dont you?
When we came only a 4th of the restaurant was filled . Sadly my friend received their appetizer shortly after ordering and mine came 45 minutes later. Seriously???
Because it became crowded so quickly
They were too busy seating people that we were pushed aside.
The couple next to us got mad and left.
I feel sorry for tge emplyeeS
So much stress..
Have been going to Ki’s for years.
Was great as usual.
As Cardiff residents, this is our favorite restaurant. It's totally authentic beach So Cal! Ki was such a personality and you can still have her vegetable stew , as if she's still cookin' it up. Can't beat the view and a great place for private parties.
Staff friendly and courteous. Very accommodating!
Excellent food and atmosphere
Overall, not worth the cost. Nice view. Great service, but food way too expensive for what you get. It's good chain restaurant quality at twice the cost.
The food was absolutely delicious. I had the wrapped salmon with basel and tomatoes. The presentation and the combination of flavors were perfect. My husband loved the filet and it was a perfect amount of food. we sat on the balcony and enjoyed the lovely ocean view. it was a lovely evening.
Interesting appetizers and great happy hour deal. We took advantage of the happy hour to get the mushroom bruschetta, cauliflower, and flatbread appetizers as well as reduced price beer and wine. We enjoyed them all. Nothing knocked our socks off, but we enjoyed them all, filled up, and saved some bucks. Our server, Nick, was great.
We sat in the bar area, which was a little noisy, especially when there was a group not too far from us. The noise was in the 65-75 decibel range. I wonder if it would be quieter in the main dining room.
We love going to Ki’s, the atmosphere is great and the food is good. On this particular night, they had run out of the special, and the appetizer we ordered, and we didn’t realize sushi wasn’t offered on Sunday nights. We were limited in what we could order. The restaurant was louder than usual as well; however, the service was good as always. I would recommend the place to anyone, just make sure you check to see what is available.
We enjoyed an early Father’s Day dinner at Ki’s, we were treated like family, our hostess was full of smiles and very knowledgeable about the food, service was prompt and the food was fantastic!
What I saw our waitress do during our dinner with all her other tables was just heart warming! She made every request a possibility and a pleasure! She had every one well taken care of and never for a moment lost her momentum or her wonderful smile!
We will definitely return, and tell others!
We go here often. Never a bad meal. Service can be slow sometimes but tonight it was good.
Ki's is a marvelous dining venue; ocean views and good food. The portions (and prices) are quite reasonable. The servers we have had are all capable and friendly. 5 stars for us!
The food is always so fresh!
We had a wonderful meal and the staff was amazing. I’m gluten free and they were very accommodating. Even bread
Yummy sushi! Lovely ocean view and great service! We love ki’s!
We are regulars at Ki’s and the manager, Melody, is a great asset to one of our favorite local spots.
Well I dropped the ball on this one as it was a couple of months ago and I don’t remember what we had :(
But I do remember very well how pleasant everyone was and the food was delicious! We had planned to go to the restaurant across the street which I believe was Pacific Coast Grill but due to inclement weather their outside dining was closed and could not accommodate as many people. They directed us to Ki’s across the street. While not directly on the beach they do have excellent views of the water. The young hostess was extremely accommodating in trying to get us seated by a window and we only waited a few minutes even though they were quite busy. Our server was a delightful young man, wish I could remember both of their name to give them credit! The restaurant has a casual, cool, and comfortable vibe; and service was excellent. We are seafood eaters so I know we all had fish and I remember it was prepared well and creatively. I would definitely recommend Ki’s !!
Food great !! Views are beautiful. A little noisy, making it difficult to hear seat partners.
Tasty meal with friends. The sunset dining deals are a great value. And the ocean view is a plus.
Thank you for taking the time to write a great review:)
Food is not as good as it used to be...so it would be hard to recommend but location great!
Love Ki’s! Casual beach atmosphere with yummy healthy food and great service. Perfect place to watch a beautiful San Diego sunset over the ocean!
Friends from out of town.
Awwww thank you. It is definitely a great soup.
Really comfortable spot...enjoyed some excellent sushi and cocktails, topped with a wonderful bread pudding dessert! Live music from Hummingbird Hotel was most enjoyable! First visit...hope to return!
Thank you for the great review, we appreciate it.
Ki’s is a hidden gem. This is the place where all the locals go.
Thank You Sam. We try to hit every category so that there is something for everyone.
We truly enjoyed our food and view ! I highly recommend this place.
Wow 5 across the board! Thank you so much, we strive for a 5 star restaurant
Great ambiance, friendly and casual. Wonderful service, unique menu. They had perfect live music (Justin Froese) which made the evening ideal.
Peg Thank you
