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.

The only downside on this restaurant : it is difficult to get a table without at least 10 days in advance (high season). Other than that, I strongly recommend Matsuhisa. Excellent food, great service, very good wine list. The bar seats are a great pick and it is first come first serve, it worked out for me many times.

We had a very satisfying dinner. Just so long as you understand that, as a Nobu place, the portions will be small and the prices very high. Nevertheless the food was excellent and the service was too. We would go again…but on a "once a year basis."

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
