Had an amazing experience at Yama sushi this evening. Intimate atmosphere with a modern flare. Brenn was amazing! She was very attentive and knowledgeable. If you like authentic sushi, I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is fabulous sushi and sashimi and the service was excellent. Not real big and tried to get in without a reservation the night before but did not want to wait the 2 hours. I would always make this a must when in Vail
