Always a great choice in Aspen!

Nobu's Shaved Icewith blueberry, strawberry or passion fruit mango is one of the best and for sure the most fun desserts I have ever had!

I'm a huge lobster fan and anywhere I go where lobster is on the menu, I order it. This was no exception. We started with the Limeston Lettuce with Rock Shrimp and the Limestone Lettuce with Scallops. Both were amazing. The scallops were a bit underdone for my taste, but exactly how most people prefer them. From there, we had... More

Loved this place. It is a bit pricey, but the food was delicious. We enjoyed rock shrimp, fried vegetables, crab & lobster rolls and their filet. Everything was exceptional. Definitely recommend dinning here - but come prepared to pay a pretty penny for your meal!

Sneaking in during the cocktail hour is key to finding a couple of seats at the sushi bar, before the rush and the madness, particularly if you have no reservation and want to catch first tracks the next morning. What's great here is the non standard stuff, so if you are up for it and have just won a football... More

I have been here many times and they just keep taking away any specials or bar menu and the prices just keep gong up.

i am not really a sushi person, bot the rest of my party is. We had a great waitress who explained what everything was and if it was spicy etc. Lobster tacos great as well as the yellow tail. Busy place but always a good meal.

It was a nice cozy restaurant with a little friendly environment... They opened late and made us wait until they decided it was time to start serving like over an hour later... Still the food was good but service in Aspen isn't good at all... enjoy!

My wife and I were in Aspen for our 50th wedding anniversary. We have dined at Matsuhisa in Aspen several times over the years and we chose this restaurant for our special night. It lived up to everything we had hoped. The Omakase (chef's choice) was fantastic. I lost count of the courses. I am not a fan of foie... More

Two of us dined at the informal ground floor Matsuhisa in Aspen. The lower level is always full. A reviewer said "always consistent" and this is so true. We especially enjoyed mixing the yellowtail jalepeno with the tuna jalepeno, both delicious and uniquely Nobu. The fresh unagi was so tasty. Even the tofu filled miso was a step above other... More

This is a very exclusive Japanese restaurant. Bring your sushi appetite and a good credit card. Everything is fresh and well prepared. Many selections and some you will not see in ordinary sushi restaurants. Its very popular so make reservations and be prepared to dine because it does take some time. If exotic Asian food is your thing you are... More
