Fish was edible, but not good.
Service started good, ended poorly.
15-20 minute wait after we finished meal, before dessert menu offered.

We eat here often and love it every time. The setting is beautiful, and the restaurant interior is gorgeous. We always order shareable items and love everything. Special favorites: Matsutini martini, black cod lettuce cups, shishito peppers, dragon roll, and the shaved ice dessert!

Great food, worth the price. Service is not what you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber, however. I would visit again though despite this!

The noise level with the music was too hard to hear conversations or the waitress properly. We were a table of eight. The waitress seemed very rushed and tried to push the highest priced meals and drinks on us.. none of the food came out at the same time , when it did the other entrees were cold. Everyone wanted to wait until all had been served to start eating. If some had started on their food , they would have been done by the time the rest of the food came. Very disappointed.

I’ve been to Matsuhisa in Denver and it is always great. We were is Vail for the day and tried out the Vail Branch. It was outstanding. The new style sushi was our favorite. Great food in a beautiful location.

We love to dine at Matsuhisa and Nobu, but our recent experience was disappointing. We visit Matsuhisa and Nobu restaurants 3 to 4 times a year and the restaurants typically exceed expectations.
Our experience at Matsuhisa Vail was truly the most disheartening experience we have had For a romantic dinner out we were seated next to a screaming infant and her frazzled family. As a result the ambiance and environment was stressful. The food was fine, but lacked the typical flavorful bouquet. Service lacked energy. The expectation (& price) is high, but this experience failed to deliver.

AMAZING FOOD!!! Best food I’ve ever had! Service was outstanding. The only thing I was a bit put off by was the ambiance and the casual clothing options of other guests. I thought it was a more upscale restaurant (we spent over 450 on dinner) but other guests were wearing ripped jeans and t-shirts. Probably won’t go back because of that.

Everything was really good. The black cod and the yellowtail were the best. The drinks were pretty good. It’s very expensive and the plates are small but it is all really good. I will go back again someday. Our waiter was great in explaining the menu and very attentive. Service isn’t that fast and things aren’t brought out in a very clear order it seems more when they are done but that was done with me.

Though the fish was fresh, the nigiri sushi was sliced thin and narrow, which was disappointing given the price of their sushi. Overall I felt the food was overpriced relative to the quality and preparation of the food.

Very disappointing food. Eggplant dish very over spiced. Vegetable tempura came with 7 pieces and the broccoli was encased in raw dough. The tuna lover said it was smelly and didn’t taste fresh. The usual dressing on the green salad was so strong one person wouldn’t eat it. One very good dish was the black bass with miso.
