In my opinion this is the best full service restaurant in Aspen, hands down. The sushi is fantastic, and the sushi chefs are inventive. The service and the chill atmosphere really make the experience, though. The bar for MNF is great too !!!

Had some great creative sushi at Matsuhisa. Stopped in a bit late for dinner, so we stayed upstairs and sat at the bar. The bartender was very attentive and she knew everything about the menu and had great suggestions for different specialty rolls the chef had put together. All of them were terrific. Will definitely go back here when in... More

Spinach salad was excellent with wonderful flavors. Sashimi was fresh and portions were good. Quiet quaint outdoor patio and the service was exceptional! Ask for Rian, her knowledge and demeanor was everything you want in a server. We will be back!!

I ate dinner at the sushi bar while on a business trip. The sushi Chef, Phillip, was very friendly and the server (wish I could remember his name) was also fantastic. I ordered what they recommended and it was all delicious! I do wish they wouldn't yell out their Japanese welcome each time a table sits down - a little... More

A friend recommended me to visit Matsuhisa during my recent stay in Aspen. Typically you need reservations for the main dining room floor but they have walk-in bar seating to the side with a limited menu. I knew the food would be pricey but was surprised for what I would get for the price. My "meal" cost $60 and for... More

This is one of our favorite places in Aspen. It is quite expensive but worth every penny. Every dish was outstanding. Our grand kids 4 and 2 even enjoyed it.

We made reservations for dinner. The place was packed but we were seated right away. We ordered the mushroom soup and several different sushi orders. We loved it. The sushi was the best I've ever had. You will not disappointed. Do yourself a favor and make reservations.

My favorite restaurant in aspen! The food was incredible. I'm a vegetarian and they had several options. I ended up getting the tempura and a vegetable roll. Omg amazing! My husband got the eggplant muso and it was good, but too sweet for me. He also had two fish rolls, which he liked a lot. The service was wonderful and... More
