First presentation of sashimi, sushi and grilled fish was excellent and more than enough as the entire meal. The miso soup was delicate and delicious. Next up was a soba noodle soup and a trio of tempura seafood. I enjoyed the soba noodle soup for the taste and texture of the noodles as well as the soup. The tempura seafood was not what I expected - doughy, not light and crisp. The mango cheesecake tasted good but did not seem in character with a Japanese dinner.

While we loved the food, especially the first course (the sashimi), we hope that the chef will consider an a la carte menu in the future. The fixed price meal was too much food, and expensive.

It was our anniversary, and we decided to have a sushi counter experience so we could watch Chef Masa at work and we chose the Omakase experience—letting the chef make the selections. The sashimi and sushi for the first course were generous and outstanding; the tempura second course smaller, thank goodness, and delicious; and the dessert of flourless chocolate cake magnificent. Talking to Chef Masa and his able young assistant Kellen from time to time during the meal was most enjoyable, too!

We started with yummy martini's. Served with edamame and cucumber. I thought the first delicious course of mainly sushi/sashimi could have easily made for the entire main course. It was all served at once on a wooden board. There were 5 different items on the board from a home made broth with tofu, unagi roll, tuna, and 2 others. A lovely home made miso came next. The last main course of tempura seemed to miss the mark, a tad heavy. Panna Cotta finished us off. Su has a decent saki menu. There was a lot of food. In fact I would have been happy with the first main served individually in 5 courses. Much more elegant and a better pace. A great addition to Santa Fe.

Su Nido needs to post their prices somewhere, anywhere. Service was exceptional. We were served right away. Would be nice if one can choose what to eat and not to eat. Not everyone can eat the same amount of food. Didn't like potatoes and cauliflower in the miso soup. Large pieces of vegetables in the salad are difficult to eat with chopsticks. Very pricey. Will not be going back anytime soon. Like Izanami better.

The presentation and the attention to the detail of each course was beyond what was expected. Our birthday celebration could not have been more enjoyable and our thanks to the staff and the chef for making it so.

A beautiful and memorable evening! The dining room nestled within El Nido is lovely, the service was excellent, and the food was terrific. The four of us loved the Omakase--five courses perfectly paced, and we didn't have to make any choices. Each course was fresh, flavorful, and beautifully presented. I have truly never seen such gorgeous platters of sushi.

Bring an appetite! I didn't eat anything all day in preparation and was glad I arrived hungry!

We arrived about 10 minutes early, but they seated us graciously, and by name. The room was intimate and attractive.

The server was professional and very sweet, and helped us select a sake. When the first course came out, I was convinced it was the entire meal. Each item on the platter was whimsically prepared and very tasty, as were the other courses.

The server, and even the chef, pretended my halting Japanese was amazing. Very cordial and diplomatic people. The respectful, welcoming culture of the Japanese people really showed through.

We left full and happy and will definitely be back.

The idea of the room is fabulous as Masa is a master chef. We went to sushi land east alot! If you have a big appetite and deep pockets who likes the chef to decide what you eat look no further. We loved it-once. 5 people with one bottle of sake and a good tip=$700. To go back we’d like to see a smaller menu as an option. 3 courses not 5. However, it is more than a meal-it is a full experience with great wait staff and gourmet presentation.

We went to the Su room before the opera. They serve a chief’s choice menu which was adjusted for my gluten sensitivity. The sashimi was wonderful with eight types of fresh fish, octopus and tuna “salad”. The miso soup had added vegetables and was excellent. The tempura was also excellent as was the pana cota.
