We always enjoy our meals at Matsuisha! Aubrey was an incredible server who took us on a delightful food journey. She described foods in incredible detail and her passion shined.

Matsuhisa is the type of place you go to if you're looking for a high energy restaurant in a visually stunning cavernous space overlooking Vail village with the ski mountain in the background. The tapas style dining is not my personal favorite, but there is plenty of absolutely great selections, which can please the vegan as well as the pescetarian.

Service is excellent, however, we ran into a very large table which stressed the system a bit. This can be a common event in Vail. Even with that limitation, I have already recommended Matsuhisa because the food and entertaining environment make this a great place.

We thought the servers and the bussers were fabulous. The meal was timed so nicely and presented wonderfully by the staff. We did love our drinks (the gardiner was the name of mine and my husband got a version of a Manhattan I believe) but did feel that the food was exceptional. We love simplicity but the taste wasn't anything unusual and the presentations on the plate seemed a bit lackluster. Truly the people that helped us made this a 4 star experience. The food was disappointing for the price tag.

Every time we go to the Vail area we make sure to have dinner at Matsuhisa and we always request Derrick as our server. We never order from the menu and just have him bring us his favorite courses. It makes it more fun and allows us to try food we might not normally order. Derrick is great and every single thing we’ve tried here has been amazing. Would highly recommend.

we were still eating.

We were very rushed in eating as everything came out at once to a very small table. So small that we had to stack food onto plates and send empty plates back to make room. Very disappointing

Our servers and our meal were both wonderful; however, the evening got off to a rocky start. The hostess was very unpleasant; so much so that it seemed she prefered to be elsewhere. The tone for the dining experience starts the moment one walks into the restaurant and the first person you meet is the hostess. Matsuhisa Vail would do well to rethink the two women who were greeting and seating guests when we were there.

We went to Mountain Standard the night before and we were blown away with that dinner then we came to Matsuhisa the next night, hoping to have a similar experience but it was very average - and even more costly than Mountain Standard! Don't bother coming here... you would be better off going to Mountain Standard two nights in a row, I promise!

We went with the chefs fixed menu... which included a miso soup and Mochi as two of the courses! Even the sushi courses were blah. We ended up ordering extra off the menu and left happy. But not at al what we expected from Nobu🤷🏽‍♂️

Everything was really great. The only negative thing I can say is they didn’t disclose the price of the special which was using the same preparation as another item on the menu. But price was 2.5 times higher. Though it did taste great.

The service here was excellent. We were with our toddler, who I thought might drive everyone crazy at such a posh restaurant. We’ve eaten at various Matsuhisa restaurants, but never with a three year old. Well, I’ve never felt like more of a VIP. Sure, our daughter was rather well behaved, but I got the feeling that they would have been okay if she’d been a pill. The food was fantastic, and the items we took to go because she looked like she was waning in patience were just as good. I really can’t say enough nice things. Go. Eat well. Don’t miss the tempura tofu or the tuna tacos. But everything on the menu is fantastic. You cannot go wrong.

Wow! AMAZING experience from start to finish. I’ve eaten at a lot of great restaurants all over the world and this one is up there with the best. The service is so genuine and knowledgeable. The food is absolutely top notch and paced perfectly. The ambiance is like nothing else in Vail. Great job Matsuhisa Vail! We will be back.

Dined for a birthday party, we waited 25 minutes without any drinks, our first sushi appetizer arrived and we finished it prior to 1 beer and sake. It took at least another 15 to add on to our current order, waitress apologized twice but didn’t do anything to check or fix the situation. Very disappointed with experience after having many other wonderful meals at this restaurant!
