Unmissable when in Aspen, especially if you love truffles! Order the cheese fondue with the truffles. Reserve well in advance!

This was our second visit to Kenichi . We were coming from toronto and asking for a very specific table and we were pleased to see our 4 seats available and saved even though the place was packed. Love the food, love the service. Missed communicating with the chef this time but got a chance to say hi just before he left for the evening.

This was ok. We enjoy our japenese very much and this restaurant just seemed to be the most average food you can get.

The food was excellent and our sever gave great suggestions. Had mixed emotions going in because of some of the negative reviews. I would definitely go back. The black cod and eggplant were amazing. Had other dishes and rolls as well, but those two stood out. I would also recommend the tempura ice cream.

Kenichi is one of the better restaurants in Aspen. Food is always high-quality and people-watching is incredible. Definitely on the expensive side, but not outrageous, depending on what you order. Definitely need a reservation in season. Would highly recommend.

With 4 people in our party, food came out separately for 3 people. 4th persons veggy roll never came after 1 hour. Sushi chefs went from slow to slower with little regard for orders
Waiter repeatedly apologized, however eventually we just asked for bill and left (without getting veggy roll)

Our reservation was for 7pm. We sat down at 7pm and ordered a lot of food Our food came so fast and they didn’t give us a chance to enjoy it by trying to remove plates before we were finished. We were done and bill paid by 7:30pm. We had no chance to enjoy our food as we were pressured to eat quickly and get out. Very expensive dinner for 30 min.
