We were charged for bread. $5 for two small pieces. Server never mentioned a charge, so we assumed it was included.

Lil's Sushi is wonderful, especially for rural Colorado. We had beautiful outside seating, and even when it rained. The heaters were on and even though we did get a little wet, stayed comfortable. The waitress and servers were outstanding and there for all of our needs even though they had to run out into the rain.

Great Crested Butte restaurant always go to when in town. Dined outside on patio and even had our own fire pit table to enjoy sushi and prickly pear margs.

Extremely disappointed! My husband and came to Lil’s Sushi Bar 3 x this past Christmas bc the food and service was great.... this time all 3 of us got our food at all different times and each of us were finished w our dishes by the time the last person got there food. Also my hibachi bowl was so salty that it really didn’t have any other flavor. I will not go back till the new owners can figure out how to get their stuff together... Service and FOOD need a lot of work! Good luck bc this was a great place to eat.

Thank you for visiting us during this pandemic. Patrons like you keep our economy going and we appreciate it. Thank you for recognizing that we're operating as new owners, a challenge that we took on despite all advice to the contrary, while over a third of the restaurants in our country will fail during this trying time. We are up to the challenge and are open to constructive comments. We would like to invite you back as we work to meet and exceed all expectations despite Covid-19 restrictions.

Very poor service. Lamb lollipops ruined. Dry and over cooked. Sushi is good, but 3 people’s orders were plated together. Strange

Ordered a handful of rolls, was surprised to find that the fish in the two maki rolls were warm. Overall the food was really good after waiting an hour and thirty mins for it. Highly recommend giving them a chance! New owner seems to be moving in the right direction!

The food is really good and I was surprised Bc Colorado is land locked and CB is a small mountain town. Good sushi is always great to have! I will be coming back for sure!

New owners eager and ready to get restaurant up and running during very busy Summer season. Lil’s is a Crested Butte favorite. Be sure and get an outside table. That’s where the action is!

Loved option to sit on patio. Fortunately evenings in July have been warm so far.

Menu options - names and choices a little different with new owners. But come on a little change is ok. I’m pretty sure unfiltered sake choices are better now. First time my wife and I agreed on Sake - the cloud is awesome. Please bring back shishito peppers appetizer.

I've really enjoyed Lil's, the dynamo shrimp is my favorite item on the menu, but the sushi is also incredible. We ordered 5 rolls for the 3 of us and that was more than enough. The waitress was very brief in her interactions and seemed stressed so I can't fault her for that. Maybe we looked poor too, we're college students, but she could've been a little more friendly, our status shouldn't dictate how we're treated. The cooks making the sushi were very friendly though! I would definitely go again, I highly recommend Lil's :)

We have been there many times over the past 18 years. It is always very good food and moderately expensive. The food is still very good but under the new ownership it is significantly more expensive and the food portions are smaller. I will not be able to afford to go back with my family again.

We love Lil's the sushi is always fresh and prepared beautifully. But the portions were soemwhat smaller now, maybe because it was closed for the past months.
