Always a little concerned about eating sushi more than 1000 miles from an ocean, but the fish here is fresh and the rolls - we had 4 different specialty rolls including the "get f-ed up" roll - are outstanding and well presented. Definitely a wonderful place for a modestly priced meal in Vail.

Used Trip Advisor to make my decision to eat here and was so glad I did! The food was excellent! We ordered 4 of their "Specials" which are basically sashimi with different sauces and garnishes and nothing was left on the plates when we were done! As for the rolls, they too were delicious and fresh. The service here was also excellent. The servers were friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. One word of warning, this place is not cheap! Each "Special" is about $20 and the servings are spartan. The rolls are also about $20 ea. but the servings are a bit larger for those. Go expecting to spend a lot of money because everything sounds so delicious (and is) that you'll order a lot!

Living in New York I have had the good fortune of eating at many a sushi restaurant. Yama is undoubtedly a stand out! The fish feels as if it swims into your mouth and melts. It really is that good. The selection is world class, the staff an absolute pleasure. Cant wait to come back!!

We admit, we are sushi snobs. And bad sushi, well, it isn't worth eating. The sushi at Yama was the best we have ever eaten ( and we have eaten a LOT of sushi in 20 different states and countries). The sushi rolls were not only delicious they were like works of art. Very beautiful. Our favorite thing to order is a simple tuna hand roll with shiso, many restaurants don't even have shiso, these rolls were stuffed full with the fragrant leaves. They were so good we ordered two more! The hostess (Hailey?) who waited on the sushi bar was very friendly and helpful with the ordering. She even gave my husband a complimentary cupcake to top off our dining experience! 5 stars to this great little place in Vail! Yes, it is pricey, but everything in Vail is expensive, at least you are guaranteed a nice experience for your money when you dine at Yama!

My sister and I dined here last month. We asked the staff to offer meal suggestions and they were spot on. Everything we tasted was fresh and mouth-watering. We went back two days later. Perfect!
