    Boy, I had such high hopes, considering myself a foodie. I was really looking forward to this dining experience as I’ve been to Nobu Malibu and Nobu, New York City. Wow what a difference, the food lacked taste andl presentation. The mushroom soup was delicious. My plain green salad with traditional dressing was delicious, but was hoping they’d realize since you’re eating with chopsticks they may have chopped it a bit. The lobster dish was good nothing special, tuna, tacos, OK. Edamame was the same as you get anywhere. It reminded me of a cafeteria. The ambience was definitely busy and hectic. Moving onto. The highlight of the evening was our server. Elizabeth was spectacular, professional, and polite, and then we had the pleasure of being introduced to a wonderful Wine by the Somm. He was on point after we had given him a few hands on what we preferred. All in all I’m sure Peaople will go for the “brand.” Vail has changed from the 10 years prior that I had been, brush up on your Spanish and enjoy the beautiful views and lovely boutiques. As far as the establishment I’ll stick to the Nobus that I know

    Matsuhisa never disappoints and it’s the one spot we can’t wait to dine at when we visit Vail. If you love cilantro, the Gardner drink is a MUST!

    The restaurant is a large, high ceiling open space that feels roomy and relaxing. At the same time, high ceilings and lack of wider table spacing led to a large amount of background noise, making it difficult to speak to one another without shouting. Servers were friendly and well informed about the menu and the options available. They were attentive and always present if the need arose. All staff were helpful when guiding guests around the restaurant. The food portions were appropriate. Yet, while fresh and well prepared, the courses were disappointing given the high price point. For the omakase specifically, sauces and over complicated additions often overpowered the fish itself. Several flavor combinations did not pair well together, or were unable to be tasted. Desserts were wonderful and a not too heavy at the end of the meal. Dining was a pleasant experience, however this feels more like a restaurant to be seen at, than a culinary standout.

    I got a sushi roll which was a specialty that was not on the menu and it utterly blew all other sushi I’ve had away. Main course was the filet mignon, cooked to perfection accompanied by a wasabi sauce that was to die for. One of the best meals of my life.

    Went for a birthday dinner for my son with eight of my family members. The meals were delivered very staggered. Uncomfortably so. Some of our meals were cold by the time others arrived. Meal was $500, and at the end of the meal server suggested a birthday dessert for my son and wished my son a happy birthday. (He never said it was a complimentary dessert). We were charged for the dessert which we wouldn’t have otherwise ordered. It was a very disappointing meal with many simple mistakes that added up.

    The manager kept going between our table and the next with his backside facing our table. This is a very disgusting habit and the fact that no patron was seated at the adjacent table made this an intolerable situation while having our dinner. Your establishment needs to have an extensive review for the management staff. The manager was the only person that was shoving your rear in patrons faces.

    Constant issues with being given a terrible table. Matsuhisa should work on seating guests at the best table that is available. Despite having 4-5 open tables by the front windows, they seated us in a back corner by the bussing station. When I asked about the other tables, the hostess said they were set for 4. We had 5. And all their square tables have leaves that open to round tables. They could have easily had one of these tables ready for our reservation, or they could have easily added a place setting when requested. Instead, I spent our very expensive dinner staring into a corner with a bus station. While they are aiming for efficient service, which is appreciated, it often makes us feel very rushed. You literally have a bite of food in your mouth, and the plate is whisked away, before you can even say anything (like you might want to keep the sauce or keep the plate to place a shared sushi order there, but you can't say anything, because you literally have food in your mouth). This happened to several of us. It would be nice if they asked if we were finished with the plate before removing it. They have also removed cocktails and sake before we were finished with them. Overall, we like coming here, but these two issues are constant bummers.

    While it was great, it's not as good as the location in Cherry Creek (Denver). Just not the same level of service or food presentation. Still was great, just not extraordinary like other Nobu locations.
