    We had heard this was the best sushi in the valley and it didn’t disappoint. It is a small space, weather permitting the outside seating is very nice. The portions are small and the prices are far from cheap but the quality was second to none. Even coming from Chicago the quality of fish was amazingly high. Every dish was terrific. The UNI make your own roll appetizer is not to be missed. The chefs nigiri selection was just as good and our waitress Amber helped make the night.

    Only negative is that the sushi pieces were very small for the price and nothing special. But the hamachi appetizer and both rolls were exceptionally good and the ambiance and service fantastic (once they graciously moved us from a poorly placed high top table to a fantastic seat by the fire). Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    Service started out great, but with two servers you would think we wouldn’t have any issues. The food is good but does not live up to its price.

    Very cold draft coming from kitchen. Bussers even had puffy down coats on. Nigiri Sushi very good but slices were rather thin so I tasted more of the rice than fish.

    Poor service. Nobody came and checked on us during dinner. For the price point that is unacceptable. We should not have to pour our sake or look around for server. Ordered ginger beer nobody brought it. Had to ask for it again

    Don’t write reviews often, but this is the worst value Iv ever experienced. Fish options had zero flavor, tiny portions, and extremely overpriced. Do not waste your money here

    Sakata is in Bachlor Gulch Ritz Carlton so the ambiance is great and high prices should be expected. food was nothing special as would be expected from this restaurant. enjoy the atmosphere have some sushi but if you go in after a day of skiing don't expect to leave full for under $200 per person

    One of the best sushi dining experiences ever! The food was fantastic and our server Danny was absolutely awesome! We sat outside on the incredible patio and while it was 15 degrees outside the heaters are so good we didn’t even have jackets on. Overall just an excellent place and we all would highly recommend Sakaba

    The food was way overpriced! The miso cod was rubbery. The sushi and sashimi were very small portions and very expensive. Individual pieces of sushi at $24 a piece minimum is three to four times more than it’s worth.

    The food is a work of art. It is clear that someone took care to place a delicate sprig on top of each piece of spicy tuna sushi. The yuzu tart looked lovely and tasted wonderful. Service is impeccable.

    Incredible Japanese food experience in the mountains! The freshest fish, an incredible Wagyu that you cook yourself on a hot stone, and a crispy rice with salmon that our niece said was the best ever… worth the trip and expense.

    We had a great time at Sakaba. We dined with our 2 young daughters, who loved the food, ambiance and attention they received. Danny and Connor were beyond attentive and the food was outstanding. Danny’s recommendations were on point. We will definitely be back - and in Danny’s section!

    It’s unfortunate to give this review because I really like this restaurant but it was not up to its usual level. Hoping it is due to reopening and not a permanent issue. Good luck but this is not the Sakaba of old.

    Fantastic service - the server was terrific, knowledgeable and helpful. Very good food - would be excellent if better value but but not exceptional for the prices, as it was extremely overpriced, even by resort standards. But impressive to find very good quality sushi in a ski resort far from fish markets…
