Wow!!!!! Amazing & Impressively Fresh Food!!!!!!!!

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed dining at Matsuhisa. It is very rare when I am so impressed with the quality and freshness of the food that is offered at a restaurant, but Matsuhisa hit it dead on. Not only did the meal taste like it came straight from the farm, the server was happy to accomodate... read more

The outstanding food is matched by the outstanding service. We had a great meal and fun from start to finish. Of course, this all comes at a price. The food and drinks here are not cheap, but worthy of a celebration for a special occasion. I found the menu confusing -- were we ordering appetizers or main entrees? But it... More

he fish was outstanding, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere perfect for two extreme sushi lovers. I would recommend this particular Nobu location to anyone without hesitation.

I had a marvelous Japanese dinner with four close friends in this very authentically styled restaurant in the Roaring Fork Valley of mountain remote Aspen. The fish was as fresh and delicious as if I had been in an authentic Japanese Inn in Kyoto. Each dish was unique, fragrant and fresh. One after another delighted us all, and several times... More

We had been looking forward to this restaurant since we had decided on Aspen! The sushi was the BEST quality I have ever had and I know sushi. The waitress was very helpful and knew her stuff. The hot and cold small plates were simply divine and the dessert was amazing. I wish I could eat here every single day!!!

I travel often, and truly this is always the best sushi! Reservations can be hard to get, but the bar is usually open, and has tables up there, too. The popcorn shrimp, the fresh salmon sashimi, lobster tacos, yellowtail sashimi, the list goes on and on....this place is a treat for those who enjoy quality sushi.

The tasting menu is incredible, and the sashimi so fresh despite being far from the sea! We walked in mid week and were lucky to be able to eat in the main restaurant downstairs at the bar. Struck up great conversations with our neighbours at the bar including the owner Nobuko herself! A special night not to be forgotten.

Excellent sushi in the mountains? Yes it's expensive but what would you expect. We have been many times over many years and found the staff consistent, friendly and proud of their establishment/committed to maintaining the restaurant's excellent reputation. Exceptional wine list including everything from over the top bottles to a 96 point Parker Cabernet by the glass. The kids really... More

This is my first Nobu experience and apart from some quality seafood like seabass, toro, scallop with caviar, and good service, just about everything else is over-rated. The restaurant in the basement is more like a fast food joint, with very basic tables, cutlery (disposable chopsticks), and a lot of noise echoing from a small venue). The environment and the...
