Another amazing meal. Literally second to none. At one point this evening I saw the hostess eyeballing our table and I thought she was keeping track of our timeline... a couple minutes later she came by with a water jug and poured us refills. The attention to detail sets matsuhisa apart in every way. We absolutely love it.

Food was phenomenal. Drinks were great, and everything was fresh. If you get the wagyu, I highly suggest getting the Himalayan salt rock. Very delicious. Tempura was amazing, as is the bento box dessert. Service was amazing as well! Highly recommend for any occasion

Consistently outstanding, although one of our dishes was served to another couple. Wine list is comprehensive, although they should consider offering more wines at the $80 to $100 price point. We really appreciate Matsuhisa and all of this is constructive commentary.

The food was amazing, our server (Andy) was very knowledgeable and put together a well crafted, multi course meal for us based on a few questions. This truly made our wedding anniversary and unforgettable experience.

We ordered omakase - 'at the will of the chef' which meant we got to be surprised by each food item delivered in an eight-course dinner. We were mostly wowed by the flavors and textures of the food served. The miso soup was a strong hit of salt and was the low point of this excellent meal. We also appreciated that the Matsuhisa team were able to address the two food allergies with ease - it probably helped that we alerted them of the allergies and interest in omakase in advance. However, how wonderful to know that they read our request thoroughly.
Service was friendly and efficient. So, all-in-all a wonderful experience.
The cost IS high and it's hard to determine whether it aligns with the meal. I would happily go back to explore more flavors that the team puts together but I don't know that I'd go the omakase route again.

First time I’ve ever entrusted our evening meal to our server. Red was amazing with all his recommendations and we never had to look at the menu other than choosing my beer.
Will definitely come back soon!

What a disappointment! Table was facing the sun the entire time we had dinner. Waitress was just ok. Expensive and we still had to hit a McDonalds afterwords. Not returning.

We will NEVER visit this restaurant again!!! We've been many times over the years and never had such poor service or any issues with the chefs. We went for date night and other than the initial, "can I get your drink order", the service was terrible. Additionally, I ask that cucumbers be put inside of a handroll that we ordered. The chef refused to put the cucumber in the handroll, because he said the chef likes to keep the recipes exactly as is. Pretty sure I'm the paying customer, so the chef arrogance on not giving the customer what they want is crap. Especially, when we spent about $300 for 2 people that night. Unbelievable!

I met a client at Matsuhisa that flew in from Dallas. We had an amazing meal. We did not even look at the menu. We let the waitress suggest items and everything was over the top fantastic. Best Sushi in Denver.

Went to celebrate a birthday for a friend —food was incredible. Crazy expensive but it was a special occasion…so i guess you could say it was worth it? Sushi Den will always be my go to every day sushi dining..but it was nice to try something different. Our server Jordan was excellent but his service assistant/ busser was even more so. Very engaged/friendly —wish he said his name. But tall, blonde kid. Give him a raise!
