If anyone would ask me where I would like to go for dinner in Aspen it would definitely be Matsuhisa. The food is top notch and beautifully prepared. It's not inexpensive, but well-worth experiencing.

Visited Matsu in March, and it was excellent. I still think this is the best in the Nobu group. The food was outstanding and I love the atmosphere upstairs. Will be back next year!

Good place for those evenings, when you want to have a break and eat something light. The menu won't surprise you, especially when you visited Nobu already. But it doesn't mean its less good. Its very tasty, and well prepared. Service is quick and attentive. We were quite hungry when we came, so we have ordered plenty, and I have... More

Our food experience here was one of my all time favorites. Every item we ordered was perfection. I'd like to give a description of everything we had but there was so much that we ordered (many dishes recommended by our fabulous waiter) that I can't even begin. We were only disappointed that we didn't have enough people with us (you... More

Every time we are in Aspen, my husband and his family make a point of going to dinner at Matsuhisa and we have never been disappointed. The basement dining room has a cool, almost laid back vibe and there is usually at least one famous face in the crowd. There is a variety of drinks and cocktails on the menu... More

It was difficult to get reservations at a reasonable time even on weekdays. We chose to sit at the bar. Wish I would have gotten the bartenders name - he was fun and knew exactly what was on the menu and what was flown in fresh that day for the specials. We relied on him to help us make our... More

Wonderful fresh, inventive sushi, sashimi, vegetarian dishes and more. We always sit upstairs--no reservations are required or taken. You can make reservations for the downstairs restaurant which has a more comprehensive menu but the upstairs menu is huge. In the summer, you can sit outside on the patio. The servers are great--friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. It is not cheap but... More

One of the famous Nobu restaurants. Best Asian food between SF and NYC. Even by Aspen standards, which are high, this is exceptional.

This was one of my most memorable meals. The waitress, Ally chose our courses for a party of six, every bite was delicious. This will be a restaurant I will return to every Aspen trip.
