Excellent food and a great service. Would definitely recommend but be prepared to pay $350 for two people if splurging on a birthday or other special occasion.

Arrived early for dinner. Restaurant not busy. Open tables with view of mountains not occupied. Told they were not available. They were reserved for " people who talk to management ". Most of seating is behind bar and dreary. We said goodbye. A table with a view was suddenly made available.Too bad. Food was poor and overpriced. Wine mark-up absurd. Tempura with old oil, thick batter. Dated fish. Poor sushi rice. Nice servers though.

Our entire experience was fantastic! We had a table of eight and the service was great! We ordered a large Friday of different things and the timing at which they brought out the food was perfect! we didn’t feel overwhelmed by the food coming too fast every single thing we ordered was delicious, from the nigiri to the lamb chops. We also ordered quite a few cocktails from the bar and they were all delicious as well. We were there celebrating a birthday and ended up closing the place down, but the servers were not trying to push us out or make us feel uncomfortable about enjoying ourselves. Although it is expensive I feel that it’s worth every penny

Matsuhisa Vail was truly amazing and delicious. We went there as a group and had truly indulged with the menu. Beforehand, we did let them know that I have a gluten allergy and they were so incredibly careful and considerate. We started with edamame and shishito peppers for the table. From there, miso soup, all of which were delicious. Moving onto the main course, I had the black cod (which is a must-get), the tuna belly and yellowfin sashimi as well as a spicy tuna roll. THESE WERE AMAZING! Some of the best fish that I have ever had.

Matsuhisa's brand clearly values staff training as wait staff and sommelier were well prepared to answer our questions and describe our selections. The restaurant is pricey, but the food and service are outstanding.

The food was well prepared and served but the portions were soooo tiny. I don't think I have ever been served dishes with such little food. The prices were very expensive which is fine but I expect decent portion sizes!

My martini was tasty but very obvious there was little to no liquor in it.

The ambiance of the room looked like a hotel lobby rather than a high-class restaurant.

The quality & creativity of the food was outstanding. However, there are no menu descriptions so you don’t know what or how to order. It’s almost as if this restaurant is only for sushi connoisseurs. it was very intimidating/ uncomfortable. The service was good but felt rushed (early Monday evening, no wait). Extremely pricey ($30 for 1 sake!) for minimal amount of food. Never spent so much on a dinner that lasted a total of 45 minutes & left hungry!

Food was great. Service started off slow, but got better. It was extremely disappointing that after letting you know that it was my husband's 40th birthday and having spent $1k in food, we were never offered dessert nor did he receive a complimentary dessert.
