Had a family dinner, small restaurant make a reservation before you get to Vail.
Sashimi apps were fresh and beautifully presented. Rolls were fun mixes of fresh fish, interesting flavors and ingredients. The soft shell crab roll was amazing, we had to order a second one
Server was attentive. It's costly but very delicious dinner.

We have eaten here 3-4 times this year and each trip back amazes me. The fish is ultrafresh (how do they assure that in the mountains, right?) the sushi rolls are extremely creative (love the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno also!) and the staff is friendly and attentive. We really love the small restaurant atmosphere and the recommendations by the sushi chefs and servers. Will return frequently. A must "go to" restaurant in Vail.

Really wonderful sushi, inventive, delicious. Our server Bren was a doll, and our hostess whose name I did not catch was also wonderful. The sake, both hot and chilled (house/Nigori) was divine.

The ambiance of this restaurant is wonderful from the second you walk in the door. The lighting and intimacy is great. It's a perfect spot for a date or to go with a group of friends. And the food is incredible, from the creative sushi menu to the entrees, they are on point! If you go, you must order the giddy geisha cocktail... dangerously delicious.
