Sushi and more!

I love sushi and Stonefish has excellent varied sushi selections. The atmosphere is more intimate and they have an indoor pond with fish. You can sit on the floor or at tables.

Ate here twice last week. Specialty rolls are as expected, eg Americanized, fusion, designer type and acceptable. Potstickers were pretty good, lacked sufficient herbs and spices for adequate flavor. A bit on the salty side. Second night also had a specialty roll which again was ok. The noodle phat bowl was very good however the peanut sauce totally lacked flavor.... More

We were excited to find a sushi restaurant in Cortez 3 years ago. We visited and had a really pleasant meal. We were quite impressed. Subsequently whenever we were in Cortez, we made it a point to dine there. However, sad to say, our 2 visits this week had left us sorely disappointed. Miso-glazed Salmon w/ Steamed Veg on Rice...

We really enjoyed Stonefish. It wasn't just a change from burgers, ribs and steaks, but very good sushi full stop. They have a huge selection with some interesting 'regional' variations. Pleasant ambiance, friendly service and pretty good value for sushi, let alone somewhere so far from the sea ($100 plus tip for two adults and a teenager with drinks -... More

Stonefish is shoulder to shoulder with Pepperheads as the best restaurant in Cortez. Much attention is paid to preparing fresh food, all in an Southwestern-Japan-China riff. Wonderful vegetarian dishes and much more. The decor has a muted intimate vibe with lots of class and attention to small details. Great meat dishes also prevail here AND you can bring the family--if... More

The Thai Peanut Phat Bowl with noodles and sautéed shrimp is yummy If you like some heat, the Thai Curry is very warm

We had dinner here one night, and we were very happy with it. The menu was fun and creative, and everything we ordered was very good. The prices were very reasonable, and the staff was very friendly. We were hungry and tired and cranky when we arrived, and we left feeling contented and happy. It definitely exceeded our expectations.

We ate here four times in four days. The sashimi /sushi combos are great value. To be fair, it does help if you like 1970s Jazz Funk: I asked if the restaurant was owned by Herbie Hancock at one point...

Spending the night in Cortez I tripadvised restaurants for dinner. When we saw the great reviews we decided to try Sushi in the desert/mountains. It was as good as the reviews said. Great atmosphere, staff, owner and food. The salmon was outstanding and the special roll was killer. Definitely will stop again when traveling from Lake Powell to Crested Butte.

For as unlikely as it sounds, finding a great sushi bar in Cortez was a wonderful surprise. We ate there 4 nights in a row. Fresh sushi and sashimi, salads, rolls. They have some Thai dishes too which we haven't tried. Lovely staff, all very nice and efficient.
