    Service was incredibly slow. It took 20 minutes to be greeted by the server (and only then because we asked someone to send over our server). Then they brought out the entrée before the appetizers.

    A pretentious money hole for the disposable income crowd; the kind one would take their girlfriend too when wife is away. Waiter was comically pretentious (baseline of haughty and superior=peak irony) and far more concerned with manipulating you into as big a check as possible. Table of 4 and our food came out 10+ minutes apart. We had to ask several times for an ordered item which came out about 15 min after all were finished (soup…). Overall it’s a nice restaurant, a more humble waiter and grounded pricing would raise stars- but that wouldn’t keep the riffraff out I surmise. You will spend about 3x $ to comparable restaurants of equivalent quality. I’m guessing you are paying for the pretentious service and Ramsey-esque platitudes.

    My husband and I have eaten sushi in some of the best establishments in the world, and Matsuhisa did not disappoint. Our server was extremely helpful in terms of navigating the menu and pointing out specialties and off-menu items available. We appreciated the creative combinations as well as some of the more traditional sushi items. The desserts were most unusual.

Wait staff was attentive, friendly and on top of our various orders for food and cocktails. A special evening out for us, will certainly go again. Cherry Creek location just as hopping as Aspen and Vail spots.

    From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome in the calm and relaxing environment. REDD was our server and he was amazing! He made us laugh and was very knowledgeable of the entire menu. The wait staff was exquisite and everyone we asked questions to seemed to know everything under the sun about all of the dishes served. There were four of us there for Father’s Day. If I was going to complain about anything it would be wanting to sit in a relaxing comfortable booth instead of wooden chairs. Also there seem to be a lack of parking in the area. Other than that it was exquisite!

    Honestly, we were pretty disappointed by the Omakase. For a $400 meal, we expected more. Some courses were delicious and delightful while others were a bit boring and uninspired. I will say their drinks are quite good and the service was impeccable. However, we left the meal hungry and some of the dishes were bizarre and not worth the high price tag. We will not return.
