    Expensive and crummy experience. We drove from Denver in mid-August. Kitchen staff did their best to make the waitress look bad, poor-quality food and my order served all at once (and forgot to serve my wife's order), absolutely no Wow factor. And this was a special event for my wife, which had been noted to them in the reservation. Stunning view and ambience, as top-of-scale, as the service, food and virtual slap in the face from the flimsy discount offered by the floor manager, was on the bottom. And she hoped we'd be back soon.

    Have eaten here for the last 5 years we have been coming to Vail for summer vacations. Food is outstanding, with an amazing variety to choose from. We always choose many different dishes, and share them with our other family members. Service has always been very good, and this time was no different.

    My husband and I will frequent this restaurant every time we are in Vail. We chose Omakase this time. We wanted to relax and have the chef's menu. I was able to try many different things that I usually don't order. Each dish was wonderful and I highly recommend choosing this when you tend to order the same things over and over. You can never have a bad dish here. The quality is consistent and the service is always great. Katarina was our server and she was spot on!

    Matsuhisa never disappoints. We took friends there for their first time and they were blown away. Chef creates an unforgettable dining experience. We never choose our food. Elena, our server is the best. We always request her. CAnnot wait until next time when we are back in Vail!

    My brother is serving in the US Navy and is in town for a couple of weeks. We had a great experience at Matsuhisa Vail the last 3 times we were there. We have tried the Omakase (pre-fix, chef’s choice which costs $175/person) the last 2 visits and were delighted. I’ve been bragging to my brother about how amazing it is and last night we took him to Matsuhisa and each had the Omakase. 1. We did not know that the Omakase is different now (May, off season) than back in March (ski season). 2. This Omakase was less expensive ($125 per person), and it really left us all with a bad impression. The sushi/sashimi courses were comprised of very thin/too thin cuts of fish. Overall, it seemed we paid $700 for very little fish, and food that was just not very special or elegant, or grande. It was a highly disappointing experience for us.

    Excellent services and amazing quality of food. What a great & refreshing choice in the mountains other than steaks and European food. The price is reasonable and portions are generous (noticeably larger than Matsuhisa Denver). Our server Vincent was very knowledgeable and passionate abt their food and had great suggestions on GF choices. We as 4 ladies had wonderful get together in the evening. We will return!

    Food was good, don’t go if it’s somewhere you’d like to talk to your friends. Noise levels are very high so not really a place to enjoy conversation. When you’re paying that price you want to sit and converse as well. Service is ok.

    Enjoyed an amazing dinner while visiting my son in Vail. The service was wonderful. Our server and the hostess both made excellent suggestions for wine, sake and food - all delicious. Our favorites were the black cod lettuce cups, lamb chop and Nobu TK 40 sake. We are already talking about going back before I go home. Highly recommend.

    We were dying to eat sushi, we had a sense that it will be too elaborate and might not like the “new age” flavors. To our surprise it was amazingly good. Flavors are superb and the service outstanding. What a way to end a perfect vacation… please treat yourself with some Rum Matusalem from Cuba is a real delight
