Matsuhisa Aspen always attracts a crowd and always requires advance reservations. Many people don't realize that an abbreviated menu is available in the bar/lounge. First come, first served. Always what you have come to expect from a Nobu restaurant.

Sally sez the downstairs is too noisy, although the menu is more ample. Upstairs at the sushi bar or the tables the service is exc, the food superb, even if the menu is limited. Outdoor seating available

Matsuhisa never fails me. First time in Aspen. We ate here twice. The map took us to a house cafe where it does have the matsuhisa logo, don't enter there. Enter on the side and go down the stairs.

Popular and expensive. Rightfully so. Go for premium Omasake at the sushi bar and go to culinary heaven. With a date at a table the service was good. More than that , with a partner preferring cooked dishes the waitress was patient and helpful. Reservations are a little hard to come by , but the effort is well worth it.... More

I like this place, and would enjoy going again. Pros: stellar attentive knowledgeable server, good quality sushi (yardstick nyc san fran vancouver), some succesfull fusion plays ( eg yellowtail sushi sashimi in lemony soy with touch of cilantro and jalapeno), happy vibe, serious wine list (eg petrus in magnum, gruner by the glass). Cons: pricey $120pp with one glass of... More

This was my family and my second visit to Matsu and we loved it. Delicious, innovative sushi and Japanese dishes. We were in Aspen over the busy holiday weekend and at the last minute wanted to dine here without a reservation. Although the restaurant was very busy and full of reservations I appreciated how our waitress found a place quickly... More

Kind of average sushi and such in a very noisy very crowded but efficient operation...tried a lot of variety and probably the best item was indeed the cod, which was way superior in quality and flavor to other times I've had this dish...otherwise, this restaurant was rather ordinary/average for its class. Nonetheless, a nice dinner in a happening place with... More

The menu was very similar to Nobu's, service was very friendly and sommelier was exceptionally good. If you feel like having a Japanese dinner in the Colorado mountains, you can't get better fish, I think.
