So this is average any city mid market sushi. I've been to Matsu Aspen and Nobu Ceasars Palace.. both on another planet quality wise than here. Don't get fooled. . This is a money grab ..fooling people into thinking they're eating the highest end sushi. I'm mad I waisted the money. DON'T GO.

My husband and I ate dinner here during Spring Back to Vail. The restaurant is beautiful and we had a great view out the front windows. The food was well-prepared and delicious and our server was attentive and helpful regarding the menu. It was one of our best meals in Vail and I would definitely eat here again.

Fresh, delicious, unique. What a great experience. Delicious and fresh sushi and accompaniments. Prompt, friendly and efficient staff. I have been to other Matsuhisa restaurants and this one held up to the reputation.

Not even close to what you would expect from a Nobu related restaurant. The set up is beautiful. High ceilings, good looking bar, nice view, etc. We were seated at the back of the restaurant in a very tight space that was very warm. After a brief discussion, we were moved to a much better table. The service was mediocre... More

How can you go wrong here? Nobu's reputation precedes him. Very nice service good recommendations we stuck to mostly sushi/sashimi but we felt like all the courses came out very fast! At these prices tell them you are in no hurry!

Everything was absolutely perfect...as expected. The signature cocktails were delicious and the wine list is huge, something for everyone. There were six of us total and we shared about four starters, three entrees, five sushi rolls and the Mochi for dessert. Perfect amount of food. Our server Spencer was extremely knowledgeable and had great recommendations. Yes it's expensive but worth... More

I've had dinner at the Aspen location and often not had a meal come close. It really is tough to describe how good it is. The only down side to the Vail location is the building is loud and crowded, but you will soon forget when the food arrives. They win for unique combinations, visuals, textures, and above all, taste.You... More

Enjoyed the food very much and service was pleasant and helpful. The only downside was that it was housed in a huge barn like place that was extremely noisy. However the quality of food and service compensated for the noise. Because it's so popular the earliest time we could book a table was after 9 pm.

It was honestly the best food we had during our week at Vail. Delicately flavoured, fresh seafood is a highlight of the menu. The dishes are... More
