    Decent sushi but for the price you’d expect a higher quality of fish and a more complex presentation of dishes.

    The food, service and atmosphere were excellent at Matsuhisa. Our only displeasure was with OpenTable that listed this as part of Restaurant Week with specific notations on the digital ad when the restaurant was not participating.

    I’ve been eating Matsu since the day they opened! Fresh, healthy, and great options for picky eaters and dietary restrictions. They’re the best! I feel like our waitress and the rest of the waitstaff were AMAZING this night. Really professional but also kind and helpful while dining with kids. Loved our dinner!!!!

    We have been to many of your restaurants. In California, New York and in Colorado and this by far was the worst experience. Our appetizer was good but the rock shrimp was prepared in a ponzu sauce when we order the creamy version and the waitress only took it back and put the creamy sauce on top of the ponzu so it’s kind of pointless we didn’t eat it. The crab roll was very fishy tasting and we didn’t eat that as well. My partner had the lobster special I believe and it was $60 and it was not very good as well.

    The main server ignored us the entire meal, while focusing on a large party. Guy that filled after was amazing, really tried to fill in the gaps but it was clear we were being ignored. We left early and got food elsewhere as we couldn’t get orders in. Food we did get was amazing.

    Food was amazing, the jalapeño yellow tail was my favorite. For dessert we had the Nobu shaved ice with passion fruit! It was so delicious! A very memorable meal. The only thing that i would say was a negative, was the noise level. I couldn't hear anything the person across the table from me was saying.

    Hostess and waitress were snotty. Oysters tasted fishy, sea bass was dry and overcooked. Thinnest cut sashimi I have ever seen. Overall, $360 for a dinner for 3 that wasn't very good and we went home hungry.

    Matsuhisa Vail is, hands down, one of the best of the Nobu Matsuhisa sushi restaurants. Having been to most of the others, I can attest to the superb quality of everything at the Vail location. I would highly recommend but please don't take my reservation 😏

    Expensive and crummy experience. We drove from Denver in mid-August. Kitchen staff did their best to make the waitress look bad, poor-quality food and my order served all at once (and forgot to serve my wife's order), absolutely no Wow factor. And this was a special event for my wife, which had been noted to them in the reservation. Stunning view and ambience, as top-of-scale, as the service, food and virtual slap in the face from the flimsy discount offered by the floor manager, was on the bottom. And she hoped we'd be back soon.

    Have eaten here for the last 5 years we have been coming to Vail for summer vacations. Food is outstanding, with an amazing variety to choose from. We always choose many different dishes, and share them with our other family members. Service has always been very good, and this time was no different.
