One of the most expensive places I've had dinner at in my life, not worth the price in my opinion. The service was very good, the wine was over priced (not unusual for Aspen everywhere), the food was good. We ate at three other well ranked places in Aspen on this trip, none of them were cheap. I would return... More

Finally went there after being told how wonderful the food is. We were highly disappointed with most of what we ordered. We have had great sushi at many wonderful restaurants including other Nobu's in a variety of locations. We live in Las Vegas and we have several there that are far superior and which are not located on the strip,... More

The menu is confusing and small plates to share are encouraged. The shrimp tempura was the best and good as a dish for one person. Our bill for a table of six was hundreds of dollars, and none of us were full!

Four of us had dinner here. Three of us order a Toban Maki all three were over cooked and too salty. It was supposed to be citrusy. We sent it back and it took our waiter 15 minutes to come back and see if we wanted something else. He had a poor attitude to entire time, but once he realized... More

The fish quality was amazing, whether it was Sushi or Sashimi or whatever! We ordered several meat dishes, which was very average. The Salmon sushi and the black cod were some of the best I have ever had! Pricy like everything in Aspen! The place is packed as usual, despite that the service was first class. Of course you must...

Matsushisa is a partnership with Nobu restaurants and the food is exactly what you would expect from Nobu: fresh, interesting, full of different crossed flavors, and in a Great ambiance. every time I come to Aspen eat there.

I took my daughter and her boyfriend here for a special evening out. We had the Chef's Tasting Menu, which was eight courses. The courses were very, very small (a few bites) and the cost was astronomical (over $500 for three people!!!!) I would not go here again unless I win the lottery.

Very fresh and tasty. My daughter and wife said it was the best sushi they've ever had, and they've eaten ALOT of sushi.

Love, love, love this restaurant. Most pricey restaurants aren't worth the hype. This one is. I would eat here once a week, if I could afford it.
