After many visits to Matsuhisa over several years it is arguably the best restaurant in Aspen. We have always been impressed with the food. The menu offers a wide selection with outstanding seafood options. This is the best east meets west fusion style we have experienced. Suitable for all occasions.

Very disappointed with the food which was underwhelming and the presentation the same.

Had 4 courses and not one of them was anything that one wouldn’t get in a a local suburban JAPANESE restaurant.

Not a good advertisement for Nobu.

The best food against which all others should be compared is Kisume in melbourne Australia which is 10/10 on all counts.

This was a magical experience. We were able to meet Nobu himself. He was warm and genuine. I was really touched my his kindness and open heart. A once in a lifetime experience!

As always, excellent food and service. Personally, I like the sushi bar best. The noise level is lower, it’s more relaxed, and we like to talk to the sushi chefs about the fish.

This restaurant offers outstanding Japanese food but is badly let down but the shocking service. There is no lack of staff but most seemed to just stand around rather than take orders or deliver the dinks/food. Prices are on par with the location and quality of the food. We felt rushed out the door after we spent 2 hours and quite a bit if money here. Overall not a pleasant experience.

The sushi is melt in your mouth amazing - worth the money!

Ambience & service were stellar (and are every time)!

The bottled water was over $10/bottle and they just kept pouring them without asking :( I would have rather paid $40 for more sake than $30+ on water!!

The restaurant appeared to lack effort in food preparation and overall service. Sushi rice was cold and hard. It was a Tuesday but the fish pieces were a bit dry and stale. Riding on the reputation of Nobu Matsuhisa and the tony locale of Aspen more than anything else. Does not hold a candle to the original in LA or even the Denver location.
