Phenomenal restaurant and experience. Our server was gracious, kind and knowledgeable. He curated an experience for us (at our request) that was both tasty and allowed us to sample dishes we may not have normally tried on our own. It was an incredible way to celebrate our anniversary.

The best sushi and one of the best meals we’ve ever had! They have a big menu, so we took the server’s offer to craft our meal for us based on our likes. He did not disappoint! All the service and drinks were terrific as well. Will definitely be back.

First time to Matsuhisa did not disappoint. The staff made my wife's birthday a night to remember and the food quality was outstanding. Highly recommend for any special occasion. Our waiter Billie was super knowledgeable and accommodating.

Meal was amazing as usual… Our server was awful! Snotty, arrogant and not attentive. He was too busy watching the tv to do his job! Love Matsuhisa but the service needs to greatly improve.

If you want top notch high quality sushi with attention to detail go here. I have eaten at the other locations in Aspen, Nobu NYC and Nobu Malibu and all are excellent. A meal here is a dining experience perfect for a special occasion.

Service was excellent. Serve me was extremely helpful. Food was good as was ambiance. It’s old school so if you value quality and tradition it’s great. If you want innovative cuisine you’ll be disappointed. It’s extremely expensive.

Matsuhisa Denver is one of the very few places that my husband will eat sushi. From the minute that you walk in the door to the time that you leave, it is excellent. The service is fabulous - the wait staff is well trained and knowledgeable about the offerings - from the bar to the main course to the dessert. The food is outstanding. Truly a memorable evening. Highly recommend this restaurant! Enjoy! M.L.

Matsuhisa’s food as usual did not disappoint. The service however has gone downhill dramatically since pre-COVID. Getting our server to come to our table was like pulling teeth. To top it all off our avocado allergy requests we made when ordering were ignored and my husband ended up eating avocados in a roll (and he’s the one who’s allergic to avocado!) It’s going to be a while before we go back.

Food is excellent. Service fantastic. As this was our 1st time to visit Matsuhisa, Brian our server, suggested we let him pick from the very extensive menu based on our feedback of what we typically enjoy. He did a wonderful job matching our comments to choices from the kitchen. We left sated and extremely impressed.

We had a great server who assisted with choices. We tried a few new items: the oysters, and whole lobster. Amazing meal. It often feels a bit temperature cold, good to bring a sweater.

Once we figured out the way to navigate the menu with the kind guidance of our server, we had an absolutely unique and memorable meal. Service is top notch and the food beautifully executed. Interestingly, we gave some of our highest accolades to the simplest dishes like the mixed sashimi salad, miso soup with clams, and cod with truffles.

A fantastic meal and great experience for my wife’s birthday! For vegetarians like us, there were amazing vegetable dishes as well as the amazing sushi and Japanese dishes. The service was also top notch, especially with all the staffing challenges that the restaurant industry are experiencing post-COVID. Pricey, but worth every penny!
