Excellent food, but could you make it less obvious that you're tired of tourists?

Very good food but the service was only average, and at $100/pp Matsuhisa Vail feel far short of our expectations. We were told by more than one resident that there are better options for sushi which are far less expensive. I don't mind the cost of excellent food, but I expect the whole package... read more

We were told by more than one resident that there are better options for sushi which are far less expensive. I don't mind the cost of excellent food, but I expect the whole package, meaning attentive service and no attitude.

Had an excellent meal at Matsuhisa. The four seasons conceirge had reccomended this place to us for dinner, and what a great suggestion. It was filled with all the fancy people, kind of fun to watch everyone. The food was excellent and the spot was super hip!!

I thought this restaurant had one of the most spectacular views. We sat by the sliding doors that open, and they had them slid open during the summer. Even though you were inside, it felt like you were sitting on the patio. I would recommend taking a jacket because if you happen to sit there, it can get cool. I... More

We dined at Matsuhisa (party of 2) and had ordered pick up a few times. Each time we ordered pick up we were told they had to ask the chef how busy they were, and they automatically added a 13% gratuity to pick up. The staff on the phone were not helpful and often seemed annoyed at a phone order.... More

The food is amazing! The Aspen location has a much better ambience. The Vail property is nice but not as quaint. The black cod is awesome, we also loved the yellowtail sashimi. Go for the food! Our waiter was fun and informative. The hostess had a bit of an attitude.

Beautiful views, amazing sashimi and King Crab Tempura. You are of course paying for all of these things, it is Vail village…I like the mountain casual vibe but felt an aura of sophisticated elegance and refinement, especially for the prep and care of the fish. So treat yourself and just go for it - the on mountain prices for mediocre... More

Not sure what people mean when they say this is not up to Nobu standards elsewhere. We've eaten at several locations and this was absolutely on a par with them. The restaurant is visually striking. The service was very attentive and friendly, from the bartender to the waitress to the serving staff. And the food was Nobu great. Love the... More

Great location, nice outdoor seating area. Large assortment of sushi. All good, some special things - cod, sea bass, yellow tail, onion tempura. Quite pricey, not convinced it was worth it,

Simply the best sushi in the state! The Uni Squash Blossom was AH-MAZE-ZING! Sat in a half booth with an amazing view. Impeccable service!
