    Sushi bites were delicious but overall whole meal was so overpriced. $10 for a bowl of rice from the kids menu felt silly! Half the staff on their phones / checked out during service.

    This is our fourth and unfortunately last time we go to this restaurant. First three times was absolutely spectacular, fourth time the menu changed and definitely not the same as before. What a shame to lose a great restaurant in the area. Food and service was subpar and extremely expensive for what you are getting.

    Sakaba was a favorite of mine in the valley until tonight. Food and service were very good as always. Being seated outside in January is sketch at best. There are giant gaps in the wall covering so an Arctic breeze blows thru. Some diners are cooked by the heaters while others catch the arctic winds. The restaurant tells you 3 hours before your reso you are sitting outside! Bring a coat! So it’s pure bait and switch as it’s too late to go anywhere else. Oh and there were tables available inside. Disappointing For the price tag I’ll go elsewhere

    The food was not good compared to the price. Sat us outside which was cold and unexpected. I get better sushi in the Midwest for 1/3 the cost. I never bother with writing reviews but this was exceptionally low quality.

    The price for the food is outrageous. As an example one piece of 12 dollar salmon was so thin that you can see the rice underneath. Yes this is a very fancy restaurant at the Ritz. Needless to say all the dishes we ordered were extremely small in portion size except the rolls. Buyer be aware you’re going to pay ALOT for very little food. Don’t go hungry. Would I go back NO, the food was nothing out of this world for 250 a person. Completely out of touch with reality. I felt like I was ripped off. One last thing we asked if they can replace cucumber with avocado on one of the rolls, and the server said that would be an up-charge! Crazy

    Diners should be warned they may be seated outside. Even though there were blankets and heaters, there was a perishing cold wind. We asked to be moved indoors once a table became available which was a welcome relief. All the staff were excellent and friendly and the food was delicious.

    Service was excellent. Be prepared for high prices. Overall delicious meal, but appetizer portions not in sufficient quantity for sharing, given pricing. A serving is closer to a bite or 2. $52 for 6 piece high end sushi entree seems excessive.

    Perfect birthday night for my husband. We were shown to a wonderful table by the fire, and our server was attentive, informative, helpful, and professional. We asked for his recommendations on everything, took them all, and were thrilled. He even brought them in the perfect order. Could not have been better. Great atmosphere, too.

    This is the most uneven high-end restaurant in the valley. It has been superb before but then suffers from crushing mediocrity. Oh wow- last night was disappointing. Not sure if you just stop trying or if you should just give up and try another concept but poor, poor performance. Hard pass on this restaurant for now.

    We were in patio and it was extremely hot from patio heaters. We asked our server multiple times and she’d turn off only to have server for table next to ours turn back on. Our server couldn’t problem solve one iota. Our female server was also very inattentive and when she was attentive she was grossly trying to upsell us. It all left a bad taste in our mouths. We drove to bachelors gulch from beaver creek village and regret doing this. There are many nice places close by - was not worth going to Sakaba.

    Hamachi was very good, but everything else was average. For the price, I did not feel like it was anything special. It felt like our food was rushed out, we were sat at what seemed to be a lounge table, and the restaurant was almost empty.

    The food was great however our waitress Amber was absolutely horrible. Made me leave the table to go back to the Ritz to get my ID from the room. I understand, but the way she treated us was unacceptable. My dad was profusely sweating and had to take off and strip to his undershirt. She refused to turn down the heaters. She ruined our dinner. Staying at this hotel should be a 5 star experience for what we were charged. We dined at all the other Ritz restaurants and has excellent experiences. Amber should reevaluate if she wants to be in the service industry at a 5 star hotel.

    I was seated outside - at first I was concerned it would be cold. My wife and I had the first loveseat on the right as you go to the outside dining space. If you are looking for intimate seating ask for this. Blankets, pillows, a heater- just cuddle up and take a nap! It was a rare instance of not wanting to leave when the meal was over. The quality of the food was outstanding but the sashimi omakase was 6 tiny pieces of fish. For 115 dollars I think at least 12 pieces might make some sense. Just order a la carte at 10 to 15 dollars a piece. I get it that it’s the ritz but at least match the price of your single piece price.

    Sakaba was in the top 10 of most romantic restaurants in ski areas, which is why I chose the restaurant. However, we were seated at a table close to a sliding door that bumped my husband's elbow several times, and it was so loud in the restaurant that we couldn't hear each other. NOT ROMANTIC at all!!! We requested a different table but there weren't any other tables available. Personally, I think a restaurant at the Ritz Carlton should not have any bad tables.
