Sushi
The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different styles of cooking until they are something completely new: they’re Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

    The food was great! However, the young employees had music blaring out of the kitchen. They also carried on conversations between the sushi bar and the floor that were so loud you could hardly hear the person across from the table. The server was horrible! Forgot half our food and had to order it again. Then it sat on the sushi bar for 10 minutes before she came out and gave it to us, then made a comment that she was surprised no one else delivered it to us. Had to ask her to remove empty dishes from the table and had to ask for a refill every time one was needed. Expected a little more out of the service given the $150 bill.

    Hapa Sushi downtown is style over substance. The sushi is very average, but the service is awful. I waited 10 minutes after being seated for a server to approach my table. After the food was delivered, I didn’t see my server again and had to poke my head into the kitchen to ask for the check. There’s much better sushi around Denver than Hapa.

    Went to Hapa before a DCPA matinee. Was excited as it has always been on my list of restaurants to try. Service was a little slow (took 15 mins to order and another 20-25 mins to get our food) and I noted tables that were seated after us got their food before us. We ordered a beer, salad, Colorado hamachi, sushi sampler, and chirashi bowl. Salad came out first (15 mins after ordering). Beer came out with the rest of the order, but no soup was served. Asked the server about it and was told that she would bring it out for the chirashi bowl ($28), but that the sushi sampler (also $28) was only the sushi itself even though it was listed under the "lunch special" section where it said "below lunch specials served with miso soup". She told me that it was a weird rule her manager set but that she would give me one free of charge. The rule is ok to have, but definitely misleading and would need to be advertised better. To have the chirashi bowl and the sushi sampler the same price while the sampler had a cali roll with 6 pieces of nigiri and not a soup is puzzling to me. The food was good, but just disappointed with the experience itself. Might give a different Hapa location a try.

    Very slow service. Lots of waiting for drinks and food. The upstairs dining area lacks atmosphere. Food expensive for what you are getting. The holiday margarita I drank was so full of ice in a small glass for $14, I was done in a few sips.

    They now use cheap sushi rice. I can taste the difference. It has been about 4 years since we last visited and we were very disappointed in the quality of sushi rice and sushi. The spicy tuna has very little spice or flavor. Very bland all around. Even the seasoned edamame.

    Had a nice dinner at Hapa before going to the Elton John concert. The service was very good, and the sushi decent, but not outstanding. The biggest problem - and perhaps I’m spoiled from eating a lot of sushi in NY and California - but it was almost $100 for 2 rolls, 3 nigiris (2 pieces each) and a large sake. For that, I would at least expect the nigiri to be decent sized pieces, draping over the rice. Not at all the case. Very small to begin with (small rice patties), and the fish just fit on each rice pattie. Tiny - smaller than even what you’d get at a supermarket. Quality good, but geez…for that money, give me something I can sink my teeth into and really experience biting into a piece of good raw fish. Nevertheless, that seems to be the case in most of the sushi places I’ve gong to in Colorado - they just don’t get it. Same with the rolls…tasty, but lots of “stuff” and not enough fish to cut through it all.

    Hapa Sushi Grill and Sake Bar LodoResponded on November 7, 2022Jazzbuph, we are happy to hear you had a nice dinner and enjoyed the service :) As a company we have tried our hardest to keep prices down during this time of inflation; However, we have had to increase some of our prices to maintain the quality products we serve. We understand this is frustrating but the good news is once prices stabilize so will ours! We appreciate the recommendation!

    If you want over the top service with awesome food, go to Hapa Sushi Grill and Sake Bar. This was our first visit and we definitely will be back. We were welcomed when we walked in and our waiter, Maxwell let us know to take our time selecting a beverage. He asked if we had been in before and when we said no, he was great about making suggestions. He literally made the evening by engaging us while taking our order. When I was attempting using the chopsticks and laughing, he offered to get other utensils. I told him it was ok because I figured I might become the entertainment that evening. I love the names of the food selections and the adult beverages. This is a place to relax, enjoy the food and drinks, watch people and be able to have a conversation. We will be back!

    We decided to eat at Hapa Sushi Grill after seeing the restaurant online when visiting 16th Street in Denver, CO. The menu consisted of a variety of sushi rolls, Japanese appetizers and also, Hawaiian style teriyaki bowls, kalua pork , and poke. We ate the Colorado Hamachi, which is very much like hamachi carpaccio, slices of hamachi with a lime ponzu sauce. The sashimi was excellent! We also ate the Caterpillar Sushi Roll. The combination of the rice and sweet sauce with unagi topped with avocado was also very delicious. I also enjoyed a bowl of udon. The broth was very tasty, and not too salty. I would definitely return to this restaurant when in Denver!

    Two of us sat at the counter for an early 5:00 pm dinner on a Friday night. It was our first time there. Service was excellent from the waitress as well as the guy who made our sushi rolls. Everything was tasty and fresh. We had 1 appetizer, 1 soup, 1 salad, 2 sushi rolls, 1 beer and 1 small container of sake. The bill came to $97.00 not including tip. I don’t know if that is a lot or average as I don’t eat sushi often.

    Excellent food and very attentive server. She really listened to my multiple food restrictions and communicated with the kitchen and with me to make sure my needs were met. LOVE having the gluten free menu; it makes it so much easier. The only downside is that the tables upstairs are quite close together. Removing even just one table along the long bench wall would provide some space.

    Second time eating at Hapa and while I've really enjoyed it both times, this time was exceptional. We ordered off menu, asking them to prepare the meal omakase. The waiter had to check to make sure that they could and once he confirmed they could, the chefs certainly rose to the occasion. They asked us for our favorite fish selections (toro and hamachi) and they crafted a number of rolls, nigiri and lightly seared sashimi to match. Pair that with a flask of nigori sake and it was a marvelous meal.
