    The highlight was the hamachi jalapeno sashimi. Light and bright, excellent fresh flavor. It was downhill after that. Oysters on the half shell seemed less than fresh and the flavors that were on them added nothing interesting to them. Panko shrimp was bland and overcooked, edamame paste , while an interesting concept, was sloppy and bland in reality. The chili sauce was tasty and helped the dish out. We had the dragon roll, which was sloppy and also bland. No standout flavors or textures. The uni was solid. The ocean trout also was tasty and well prepared. A downside was that all of the sashimi was room temp or a little warmer. For the price of this place, there are many other sushi spots in Denver that are far better in quality and content.

    We had reservations and the host was adamant in seating us at the bar. We had a pregnant lady with us so she couldn’t get up on the high seats… we had to wait close to 30mins before we got a table. This was not cool, wish they were better prepared, otherwise what’s the point in making a reservation. The food and service otherwise was great!

    Loved the presentation and taste of every dish we had (crispy spicy tuna, Takoyaki, Kobe beef buns, spicy scallop and tuna rolls, and Creme Brulé cheesecake). The only hiccup was when I requested fresh wasabi, what appeared was not what I had expected, and I was charged $8.00 for basically a teaspoon of it. One other little issue was the chairs make a very loud squeaking noise when moved. Overall, great experience and we will return if in the area again!

    We came in for an earlier dinner before a concert. They either didn't train their servers well enough or were short-staffed. I specifically asked about a chicken thigh appetizer and how it was served, and the server told me it was on the bone with a sauce - Chicken Karaage. Twice they brought me chicken wing skewers - so we said forget it. However, the server blamed us for the wrong order. The sushi is delicious and fresh, but again we had a service issue. The server delivered the food, and we asked for two more cocktails. We had three rolls and two pieces of nigiri. We had to stop eating and ask again for our cocktails because they did not come in a timely manner. There seemed to be plenty of servers and food runners - maybe the management needs to train them better.

    Loud music already playing when we got dinner at 5pm. Could still make conversation but barely. Waitress took awhile before coming up and then started filling our water glasses without even saying hi. Food came quite quickly but again our waitress didn't come by until we were finished. Subpar fishy sushi, great cocktails.

    The first time we went, we enjoyed everything but the quality of the sushi at how "fishy" it was. We really liked the interior and the vibe so we figured we'd give it a try and the second time, the quality was great and fresh which brought us back. Yesterday was our 3rd time trying out this place and may be the last. The ambience is great, we love it but the quality of food is lacking. We ordered the Mizu Roll, Aburi Otoro, Miso Salmon, and Yellowtail Roll. Some of the fish have a "fishy" taste/smell and the Yellowtail roll was just poorly rolled. We've ordered the Otoro before so decided to try the Aburi but the quality of the fish isn't great - definitely not worth the $10 ea sushi. Having a Roll named after the restaurant, I expected more from the quality and the flavor. We would have loved to say something about it to the waiter but they didn't even bother asking how the food was. It was almost like they knew. Hah. Figured a review would be more ideal and direct and Management will be able to learn from it. Thank you.

    Not really worth the tab. The sushi was meh and when we explained we needed gluten free it felt like we received the lowest level of customer service and experience. I wouldn’t recommend this establishment as a spot for sushi in denver. Sushi Sasa down the street is 100% better and the same price.
