Need to up their game to stay relevant. I can't point to anything that was really great. Their prices would indicate high end sushi options, but was no different than any other Denver sushi establishment.

I was so excited to go to Nobu's restaurant..... Maybe it's the area or maybe it's the fact we are in a land locked state but I was so much happier with his restaurants in the north east

This was our first time at this location. Have been to others in different locations. Food is very well prepared and served. It is pricey; however, that is what fresh seafood costs. This is fresh.

Although pricey, this will be my go-to special occasion place. Most of the food was outstanding in taste and presentation. The king crab tempura was good, but it could have been any fried whitefish. King Crab should not be fried; everything else, outstanding. The ambience was very eloquent casual. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. They received my 20% tip. We spent $360 for three people, but could overlook the price on special occasions.

We are relocating to Denver and were in town looking at houses. We had 8:00 reservations and called at 6:00 to see if we could come early. No problem. We sat at the sushi bar and had the chef (Niko) make whatever he wanted for 7 courses. Every dish was wonderful. 2 of the dishes came out of the kitchen and the other 5 he prepared in front of us. This is one of the best restaurant s in Denver. I highly recommend it.

Once we get to Denver we will be regular (weekly) customers!

Not worth the hype. This place feels like a restaurant in a nice hotel in the city. It should be darker in the dining room. The wine list needs an overhaul. Several "pretty good" things on the menu, but that's disappointing when most people eat there to be "wowed".

Looks great.....but you pay a 50% premium for location and decor alone. Food was OK....small portions. Black cod came highly recommended but a little undercooked in its core. Baked crab hand rolls and tuna tacos were embarrassingly small. Far better to make the trip to Sushi Den or Izakaya....imho.

Food was good, the restaurant is lovely, and they do “upscale” well, however, it’s really lacking in vibe. We went on a Friday evening and I would have expected more of a “scene”. The fish was good and service was great but I wouldn’t rave about the experience, for the price.

I always love this place. My husband and I brought a friend from California who is a SERIOUS foodie, and she was over the moon. I've heard from her every day since about how much she loved the experience. Dustin and Jamison deserve special shout-outs for taking care of a fussy table, as does the amazing sommelier who assured the wine for our friend was perfect in every way. Thanks for another great evening.

Absolutely excellent in all regards. Service was friendly and extremely efficient as soon as we walked in the door. The restaurant itself is strikingly designed, with a tasteful combination of traditional Japanese architecture and modern themes. All ingredients were very fresh; the fish used for their nigiri almost melts on the tongue. Don't miss the dessert menu; the chef's blending of Japanese ingredients with multicultural techniques is masterful.

What a fantastic restaurant with excellent service! Marissa our waitress was so educated on the menu and lead us through a wonderful culinary experience. The Caviar she recommended was awesome. It was then followed by sashimi beef and then a Cod dish that melted in your mouth. To top it off was an outstanding Lamb. Every plate recommended by Marissa. By far the best dining experience we’ve had in Denver! And that’s saying a lot.

Everything about our experience was great except the service. Our waitress was very cold, robotic in her style of communication, and visibly less than enthused when asked about some pretty minor preparation accommodations. Didn't make for a very warm or romantic wedding anniversary, which she knew were there to celebrate.

Overall about 50% of the meal was fantastic. The other half was pretty bland/basic. Not what I was going for in a meal that is supposed to demonstrate the best their chefs are able to produce.

This is an amazing restaurant from the famed Nobu Matsuhisa, I've been to his 1st in Beverly Hills of the same name numerous times, the Nobu restaurants all over the world are consistently exceptional, and the food is always consistently the finest money can buy, but it is expensive so know this before you go, I guess there are dishes where you can experience this fine dining if you want noodles and appetizers, but as soon as you get into the sashimi and sushi, plan to pay a large bill..I personally love it so I keep coming back, in Denver it tops my list with Sushi Den a close second, just the ambiance at Matsuhisa is so pleasant and soft on the eyes, quiet, this is a superb experience, exceptional service and can be a very romantic place to take your loved one.

The food and service here are top notch. It doesn't get much better in Denver. If you love good food, great drinks and knowledgeable servers, this is the place for you. It won't be the cheapest meal you have had but it's worth every penny. Delicious! The sea bass and the black cod lettuce cups are two of our favorites.
