Kenichi has a great ambience. It's really modern, chic, and young. The food is really good but sushi is just fair. The Cod is amazing, don't go without trying it.

Run to Matsuhisa and away from here. The food is OK, the service pushy at upselling, but OK. The bartender is extremely rude. We ate at Matsuhisa the night before and night after- what a difference!

We just love this place! For anyone who like sushi I think that this place has it just right. The fish is fresh and just melts in your mouth. We had a selection of dishes including a couple the waitress recommended ( including the eggplant!) and they were sensational. Our waitress was polite and went out of her way to provide us with everything we needed to make it a perfect evening. Best to book so that you don't miss out.

Very nice sushi restaurant in aspen. The sashimi was buttery good! That was brought out to us first. Then rolls came out, we ordered one called the kenichi special, and a spicy tuna roll. The rolls were some of the worst we've ever had. They were not rolled well, very bland with the flavor and such small amounts of fish it was ridiculous. Stay away from the rolls, on top of it all as with all aspen food it was expensive. One good thing on the menu was an appetizer called pan seared spicy edamame.

It is American Japanese food which includes odd combinations such as ribs but it was all very tasty and the service was brilliant. It is a shame there was no teriyaki on the menu but the rolls were good. I would recommend it with the understanding that it is Americanised.
