When we first arrived we had to wait for a while to be seated. However once we were seated at our table the manager brought us an appetizer on the house for our wait which was unexpected but definitely appreciated. We have been to Nobu in Malibu, CA and knew the restaurant from there. Our service... read more

Matsuhisa offers consistently excellent food in a bustling, up-scale, bistro-style environment. Prices are high, but the quality of the food makes it all worthwhile. Highly recommended!!!

After our sad experience at Elina. We were pleasantly surprised with Matsuhisa. I live in Austin where Uchi is the best sushi I've ever had. I travel extensively so that is saying a lot. The restaurant atmosphere feels kind of like a cafeteria basement but the food is so well done you forgive them for it. Service was great as... More

I was recently in Aspen on a business trip and our group decided to simply let the server know what our favorite fish was and the chef did the rest! We had sashimi plus three rolls that you wouldn't have found on the menu. I would recommend sitting on the patio or in the bar area...this is where the best... More

Maybe I had great expectations, I love the Vail Matsuhisa and others, firs, the restaurant is not very nice, it is underground like in a hole, no views at all. The food, was ok, but not amazing

We were fortunate to revisit Aspen and dine at Matsuhisa. Have enjoyed Sushi in all major US cities. Without a doubt, Matshuhisa is the best. Some restaurants may come close, but none exceed the quality of this establishment. Can't wait to return.

We enjoyed our meal here, although our daughter pointed out that the expensive sushi was not all that much different from lesser priced versions we've enjoyed in other restaurants. I suppose the distinction comes from the beautiful decor, the impeccably mannered waitstaff, and the carefully arranged plates. All in all, I wouldn't make a point to rush back. The problem... More

All four of us were disappointed. We were really looking forward to our dinner here after having two wonderful dining experiences the nights prior to trying this restaurant. It was loud, crowded, our server was very impatient with us. He never checked back to see if we needed more wine or water. Everyone was done with their food and was... More
