    The restaurant is loud, it's hard to hear the other person at your table. However, this was the BEST sashimi I've had in Denver.

    We came to mizu for my birthday celebration and it was my first time there. The atmosphere is amazing, the food is delicious, the sushi is so fresh and the drinks were good. I do want to give a shout out to the Asian female waitress. She was amazing and deserves a raise. She provided excellent service.

    Between the waitress that forgot about us and the drunk guy at the next table that called me a c***sucker bc he didn’t like my watch and wanted to fight, safe to say we wont be returning. Had better tuna at lunch elsewhere for poke. Skip it

    The drinks were good but food wasn’t good. Some of the fish was extremely fishy. Some of the rolls were bland. The bahmi was tasty and the scallops too. The place was extremely noisy.

    The food was delicious but the restaurant was extremely loud for a weeknight out. The server was super sweet but not very attentive. I still love this place but the vibe was loud electronic music and people yelling at their tables. It was simply nit the mood we were going for.

    Super loud edm music playing while we were trying to have a dinner date. The owners were taking shots and all over our table since they were right next to us in the bar area. The lobster rolls, prok belly dao and chicken thigh apps are not good at all. The espresso martini is also weak. This place looked promising but was not it.
