Sushi
Nestled in the Vail Village, this sophisticated sushi and Japenese restaurant offers an intimate and fun dining experience. With a menu that focuses on fresh fish and a variety of specialty cocktails, this surprisingly chic restaurant fulfills the needs of the health conscious and fun-seeking individuals, and fits right into Vail’s exceptional nightlife.

While patrons dine to the sounds of acid jazz, glances of the Rocky Mountains and conversations about the days snow adventures can be a perfect reminder of the fact that they are dining in one of the most picturesque ski towns in the world.

Yama is by far, the best sushi place in all of Eagle Valley. Great service, delicious and creative sushi in a laid back (but nice!) location. Love this place!

All their sashimi is amazing! Love it when the food is not overwhelmed with sauces. Shrimp was great. Was disappointed with the Alaskan King Crab claw. Desserts were interesting. Do wish Yama would open for lunch.

It is always a great experience at Yama, we are only visitors but try to go to Yama at least two times while we are in Vail, it never disappoints. It is a small restaurant so reservations are definitely recommended as it is very popular and fills up fast. While it is small the service is very good, fast and friendly.

No andaba la calefacción y hacía mucho frío dentro del restaurante.
Había un solo sushi man y tardaron demasiado en traernos la comida.
La comida fue excelente pero cominos con abrigos puestos y con demasiado hambre por la espera.
Pedimos vino tinto y no estaba a la temperatura adecuada.
Es muy caro para no dar el servicio que el valor exige.

Sushi isn’t as good here as it used to be! Used to be our go to sushi when in town. Sashimi didn’t seem near as fresh! Service was great but it took over an hour to get our first sushi order..... really slow from sushi chef point of view! Will stick to matsuhisa from now on.

Love this place. Feel that they change up the menu more than Matsuhisa and the sushi is just as good. Highly recommend.

No iced tea? :(. Hostess sat us and then sat 3 people right beside us. The place was empty. Seemed a little intruding and inconsiderate on her part knowing there was many other options for them. It was like having uninvited guests for dinner

I ate at Yama when it first opened and the quality was much better. The quality of the fish this past Saturday was not good. It didn’t seem fresh and it was poorly cut. The service was very good, but we were extremely disappointed by the food.
