Good Place

Good Place but dont expect to find a lot of meat but it does fill you up. This was the 1st place I visited when I arrived from Colorado. I would go back for a drink and dessert. But the views are priceless

Sketchy Service

They took my very favorite item off the menu! (A pasta dish with broccoli, peas, garlic and parmesan.) And they wouldn't make it for me since it wasn't on the menu anymore. I can't seem to find anything else on the menu that is great. We're also had some really terrible service several times.

One of the best in the San Diego area

I've been to Ki's many times. They are not exclusively vegetarian, but the vegetarian selections are truly awesome. You get a choice of 3 seating areas: the regular dining room, the balcony, and the covered but open veranda. But no matter where you sit, you get an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean, illuminated after dark. The prices are very reasonable given the excellent food you get.

Fresh, Healthy, and Huge!

When I ordered my tempeh sandwich with the garden salad (one has a choice of many 'sides'), I was not expecting the enourmous and gorgeous pile of greens, carrot, sprouts, tomatoes, and more that I recieved (it could have been a meal in itself!). I liked that they had an ingredient list to check what was vegan-friendly right at the register, and the servers were very helpful. Delicious food, beautiful atmosphere, and great if you have omni friends/family.

Vegan friendly

Ki's has great healthy food. Although most of the items on the menu are not vegan, my waitress was able to effortlessly go through the menu and tell me which items could be made vegan.

I like Ki's

Many items are not vegan, but a vegan can still do quite well here. The

Killer food and killer ocean view

You can't beat KI's for tasty organic food. I love eating there for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a quick stop for a smoothie. The people who work there are great too! Highly recommend this restaurant by the sea!

Just OK

Ki's is just OK. I used to work next door and everybody would talk all about Ki's. I found them to be generally overrated. But they hit the spot if you are hungry and in the neighborhood.
