amazing food and decor!! – kion was a delight!!
food is simply amazing!!
decor is out of this world!
a first on peruvian cuisine...had only heard about the food being great and was not dissapionted at all.
service was also up to par even though restaurant was extremely busy.
BAD SERVICE – I have been to KION twice because I really like the rice chowder but I have to say service is quite BAD. The hostess & waiter were both very rude, I never saw a smile on their faces. We waited for 15 mins for our check. Sushi rolls are mediocre, not as good as other sushi places I have been to.
Great Food, Beautiful Ambiance, Bad Service, Weird Atmosphere when it becomes Club – I went to Kion for a group dinner this weekend and I must say the food was fabulous. I tried a variety of things - some sushi rolls, eel nigiri, Coco Tuna Ceviche and a cilantro based seafood soup. Everything was good, but the Cilantro based Seafood Soup was amazing! They did not skimp on the seafood at all - it was full of octopus, squid, mussels, clams - and the flavor was absolutely delicious. I really enjoyed my food! The service is really bad (they took forever and they kept getting our drink orders wrong; they were also very surly), but I would overlook that to enjoy the delicious food and the fun atmosphere there. The ambiance was gorgeous - for a large group, try to get the table where you can sit on the floor. Beware, after hours it becomes a club and they charge cover. On Saturday - at around 10:30/11pm the music was very electro/techno and it was populated by a lot of super Goth types so if that's not your season, wrap up your dinner by then.
my boyfriend birthday - ;) – I went to Kion last week for my boyfriend birthday party and I have to tell you it was perfect. Even though the place was very crowd and busy my friends and I were treated great! Not only food we ordered was delicious, very tasty but everything we asked for including drinks arrived to our table very quick. At the end of our dinner after our desert we were surprised with round of amazing shots which were sent to us by the manager. We had a very amazing time! We tried ceviche testing - WOW, zapallitos, ostras and couple of rolls. Just perfect! For a main course I recommend rib eye with gratin and sea bass. That's what I and my boyfriend had. He was very happy having his birthday celebrated over there. We stayed for couple of drinks after dinner and had great time! If you want to have a good time and drink in a classy environment, go to Kion!
Great – went there for my sis' birthday~we made reservation so the tables and everything was already set up...it was a big group so they sat us at tataki room or something?! so it was cool...only our crew were there. there was a band or sth-great atmosphere...the foods are above great!! esp Spicy tuna tatare..the OYSTERS!! and the steak~~~the service was good too..100% will go back there again its a fun place!!
DO NOT ORDER A MIXED DRINK – nice decor, good food, friendly bartenders but i will NEVER order a mixed drink , our table was not ready so we decided to grab a drink at the bar while we were waiting and we saw the bartender pouring house vodka into a bottle of grey goose, it makes you wonder whats in all the other top shelf bottles especially if you are paying 10 to 12 dollars a drink so if you decide to go there stick with beer
great time in alphabet city – As i saw some of the negative reviews i was compelled to write one myself. i was very impressed with this restaurant lounge in the east village
they combine latin and asian fusion...food is amazanly delicious
service was also very good and the place was very very cozy.
we arrived around 630pm and we were a group of eight, the place was just getting busy...hostess was helpful and sat us promptly...around 9pm the place really filled in and as we were on dessert ...we were offered a bottle of champagne so the next table good be sat promptly and on time...not bad huh? waitstaff and mgnt really looked out...thank you guys
Service is horrible. Drinks are tasty. – Atmosphere is trendy and fun. Drinks are tasty. Food was Ehhh (boring and not very tasty)... Service is horrible. It took us over 10 minutes to get a glass of water. Then we had to wave someone down to take our orders. It then took over 30 minutes for us to get our real drinks and appetizers. Then over 1 hour to get our Entrees. On top of that, They forgot to make an entree for one of us. Then the waiter started to argue with the busboy in front of us at our table about the missing dish. I can't even remember how long it took for us to get our check. It seemed as though there was only one waiter and possibly he was even cooking our food at the same time. On a slow Wed night. Good Luck if you plan on eating there. You'd be better off just hanging out by the bar for drinks.
Cool decor, rude service, average food – This place is probably fun as a bar/lounge after hours, but the restaurant was a disappointment. Our waitress was rude and unattentive. The food is interesting and tasted fine, but nothing exceptional. At this price range, I expected better. Would have been a better experience if the service was up to par. I may stop by Kion again for a drink because at least their lounge area and cocktail list is great. They should really hire friendlier servers though.
Rude Owner – So I live around the corner from this place, and I loved it until I met one of the co-owners. This was the place I always took friends & visitors...it combines my two favorite cuisines, latin & japanese. Anytime I've been, the food has been good...the female bartenders have attitudes, but the rest of the staff has been great. The last time I went, a friend and I ordered plenty of drinks and food. We paid the bill but were finishing up our drinks...within ten minutes, this man asks us to leave our table because "we didn't originally have a reservation, and so we had to get up because someone with a reservation was waiting for the table". He wasn't apologetic about it, he wasn't nice about it. Very matter of fact he pretty much said "get up". I've been there many times, spent a lot of money there, and that is the type of treatment you'll get if you don't have a reservation. I haven't been back since...and don't plan on going back.
