    The food is creative and delicious and service was excellent. However the prices were quite expensive compared to other fine dining, reaching nearly $300 for two on the tasting menu.

    Being in a land locked state, most would wonder about the type of sushi one can order. At Su Sushi you are in for a treat if you can trust the sushi chef with the menu and letting him choose what to make. Extraordinary meal filled with delicious surprises and the fish was beyond fresh. It's expensive but so very worth it in every way. Thank you for a delightful meal... we loved seeing you again in such a perfect setting.

    We sat at the sushi bar. The chef was fantastic. The sushi was fresh and creative. The overall restaurant atmosphere is awesome. The wait staff wasn’t really on top their game. The chef noticed our service was slow so he took the time to make us a dessert and give it to us as an apology for the slow service. That’s what a quality place is like.

    Such a wonderful experience! Our hostess was so bright, bubbly and accommodating, really made us feel special. And Chef Hattori is a delight, so joyful and kind and his food is reflective of his spirit. Playful, delicious, bursting with pops of flavor. We had an incredible evening and left smiling from ear to ear. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an intimate, special evening out.

    Simply the best. As word gets out that Masayuki Hattori is back, preparing and serving his perfect sushi across the bar at El Nido’s Su, this is fast becoming THE place in Santa Fe to have an authentic Japanese food experience. Perhaps our other local treasure, the beautiful Izanami at Ten Thousand Waves, will get the message and pull back from its Latin-Japanese fusion concept and return to genuine Japanese flavors and freshness.

    Very nice service! Sushi counter staff could not have been better. Only issue is it reminds me why expecting great sashimi in the mountains is not a great idea. Very dark tuna (frozen), and less than great other items. Of course tempura and anything cooked was great. Take these great service people to a place with amazing seafood and we would all be happy!

    As ever with chef Masayuki, perfect food. Thinking about possible enhancements, perhaps only a few a la carte selections, priced as extras to Chef Masa's omakase, and perhaps a few more sake choices, especially namazakes like Minato Harbor, Mutemuka, or Naru to Tai. Otherwise, Su is the place for an unforgettable meal.

    If you haven't tried this place yet you should. I haven't found many Japanese/sushi bars in Santa Fe, but I would go out on a limb and say this is one of the best. Not only is the food fresh and delicious, but the service is also super friendly and accommodating. The restaurant staff treats you like family. I'm eager to try a few more things on the menu and discover the nice sake list. We enjoyed the plate of assorted nigiri. We also tried various rolls that were all good: New Mexico roll, veggie roll, spicy tuna roll, eel roll, and a couple more. I would recommend this restaurant.

    We went to El Nido for Thanksgiving, the food was good although our table was served after others even though we arrived and ordered first. We figured it was just due to being busy so we decided to try the Sushi side a couple of weeks later. Turns out that the experience was even worse the second time around. We were left to wait for 30 minutes before the waitress took our order, while she tended to all the others around us (same waitress from our previous visit). We were not brought the proper dishes for our sushi and had to wait another 15 minutes to get her attention after our food was brought out before we could eat. Food was great, but the price was too high given the extraordinarily poor service. Finally, after she brought the bill out, we had to wait while she had a twenty minute conversation with another table before she came for the payment. All in all, I am not sure why we were deemed less worthy of proper service, but, as it happened twice I can only assume it had to do with our ethnicity or some other outward factor/appearance. Suffice it to say, we shall not be returning to this restaurant as we did not feel valued as customers in any way.
