It truly us an outstanding experience! The setting is in the primêre location of Solaris that is located in the Center of Vail. The ambiance is very sheek mountain modern and classy. I love sitting at their Sushi bar to observe the Sushi artists at work. I love Sushi because of its beauty, taste and health benefits. When you a... More

Ate dinner here last night. $32 for a 6 oz cod that was raw in the center. Waited 20 mins for salmon filet and it was raw in the center too. Waiter said these were family style but the portions were tiny. Also had a dirty martini which tasted awful and had to send back. King crab tempura was cooked... More

I certainly enjoyed the Japanese fare here but would not go back because I didn't feel that the experience justified the price, which will probably run at about $100 per person including drinks. A large open dining room, sort of a modern ski lodge look. It's loud in there! I personally tend to prefer the smaller and more intimate feel,... More

My wife and I went to Matsuhisa this weekend, expecting a top notch Japanese experience. It was good, but it wasn't great. We ordered a number of smaller plates and a Bento Box special, so we got a wide variety of items. Some of the sushi was really good: the Spicy Tuna Roll, the Salmon, and the Whitefish. But some...

Traveling alone, I ate at the sushi bar. The chefs were very friendly and made some wonderful recommendations. I filled up on sushi and also had a cup of the clear mushroom soup. I have no complaints at all. I wish I could remember the name of the cocktail I tried--it had passionfruit in it and it was divine. Service... More

We have eaten at Matsuhisa Vail numerous times. All of the meals have been outstanding. For a real treat, try the Omakase tasting menu. Omakase means "from the heart" and the chefs serve whatever inspires them that evening. If you go off-season (late September/October) you can have a 5 course Omakase for $45. Otherwise on season, it is $125 or... More

Nobu Matsuhisa doles out his best in this fashionable, well-crafted concept combining asian flavors with South American ingredients. Everything I've had here, though expensive (it's a Nobu spinoff and Vail pricing doesn't discourage the prices), is entirely worth it. Indulge in a culinary experience! Head in during off-season and take full advantage of the omakase menu. Trust the chefs and... More

An honestly beautiful setting with open views of the mountains, good service and pleasant ambience. I really wanted to be swept away with great food, and although very fresh and good, the meal itself was ordinary. I had wished for something special about the food, the taste or the presentation, and it was good, but not great. Service was very... More

This was an outstanding Japanese restaurant. Well beyond a simple sushi place :). Excellent menu and great service (although a bit pretentious ). The view was great and the food was prepared brilliantly. I did not like every dish but that does not diminish the quality. The prices are quite high though. I would go back and pick different dishes... More
