A word from Hapa Sushi Grill & Sake Bar - Landmark in Greenwood Village
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 sytles 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!

    We've been going to the Greenwood Village Hapa since its opening and always have had a great experience. We eat there about 3 times a month with always the same server - Gabe. I highly recommend you ask to sit in his section. The sushi is inventive and fresh. Other than the standard sushi, try the Crispy Ahi, Magic Mushrooms or the Monkey Brains - you won't be disappointed.

    I was so impressed with Hapa! We made online reservations, and our table wasn't ready when we arrived. We sat in the bar area and were brought complimentary calamari and edamame for waiting about 10 minutes (AWESOME!). The food was so good, and the presentation of the sushi on the "elevated surfboard" was cool. The ambiance was relaxed, and is a great place for dates or groups. The staff was very attentive, but not pushy and very knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommend the specials!! You won't be disappointed at Hapa!

    Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience. We ordered the shumai, calamari, and three rolls (Hapa Roll, Multiple Organism, and Lobster Roll). The Multiple Organism roll was good, particularly for a fried roll the flavors stood out well. As was the Hapa Roll, which was a standard spicy tuna, but with the tuna mix with has more flavor than places who use slices of tuna and a squirt of spicy sauce. The Lobster Roll was not worth the price. It wasn't any more that a Shrimp Tempura Roll with Lobster, very dry and not a lot of flavor. We arrived before our reservation and were asked to wait in the lounge, which is reasonable. To no one's fault, the lounge was small, with a poor layout. It was crowded and all you could do was stand in the way.

    The food and service were great. I can count on that when we go to Hapa. But I almost didn't bother sitting down. There were somewhere between four and five hosts. When we walked in the door there were no other guests waiting, and the hosts were in the middle of a conversation, no one greeted us. I walked forward and said hi, and was met with a sneer and a very annoyed, "We'll be right with you." I backed off and waited. Another host looked up a minute later and said, again annoyed, "We'll be right with you." I nearly walked out. As a host, your job is to WELCOME guests into your restaurant. Yes, you have to multitask, but dear god, with four of you, someone can take my name, and let me know that my table will be ready shortly. So offended.

    Went here for dinner the other night. Really liked the decor and ambience but then the food was just not good. We had four types of sushi and we were still hungry, but instead of order more sushi we just decided to go somewhere else. Was really looking forward to my dinner here and left very disappointed

    Hub & I spotted a charming corner patio table on the way in, and the host literally let us lead the way! We were soon offered waters and bevs. I ordered the drink recommended as their most popular cocktail. It had a naughty name I cannot remember, but tasted like a pomegranate saki-tini. Delicious! My husband ordered a lg Japanese beer. We started with the seasoned edamame - very tasty, but the bottom layers were dripping wet as the flavorful liquid collected at the base of the bowl. Our waiter also suggested a fish app w/ jalapeños atop each thin piece of fish. The jalapeños were HOT, but the fish nice. All the sushi rolls we chose were terrific. Again, the naughty-named stuff was the best LOL. Great autumn Sat. pm on the patio @ Hapa.

    We went to Hapa as a family to celebrate my husband's birthday and I had specifically requested a "nice table" for the occasion in my opentable reservation. The food and service was good, but they sat us at what I would have said was the worst table in the restaurant: right next to the restrooms, and squished against the wall, with no view of any other diners, and barely enough room for the 4 of us. We were not at all pleased! And its not like the restaurant was all that busy either.

    If you don't like sushi and can only handle California rolls and tempura- you will probably like it here. Personally- not a fan- sushi grade/quality was not good at all, tasted like grocery store sushi. Specialty rolls had way to much mayo- couldn't even eat the Orgasm roll. Will not return.

    You know what you get when you make a reservation or drop in unannounced at Hapa. The fish quality and preparation are very good. The service staff are very attentive. None of the "all you can eat" shtick waiting for your next 2 pieces of arrive. This is a neighborhood staple for our entire family.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Went in Sunday before a movie. It was extremely crowded - despite having a reservation, we were given one of the worst tables in the restaurant. It was halfway into a walkway (did they just add it because it was so crowded)? Should have known that might have been foreshadowing of what was to come. Our server was friendly, took our drink order, brought drinks, took our food order...and disappeared. 30 minutes later we grabbed her and asked where our food was. She brought (most) of it out, wide-eyed and seemingly oblivious that we had been waiting for it for ages, and that our starter had never showed. When I mentioned that, her response was 'Do you still want it?', rather than any sort of apology. Pretty disappointing experience.

    A real treat to hit Happy Hour! Plenty of seating outside, if you want, and prices that are well within one's budget! My friend and I enjoyed sake for an unbelievable HH price and ordered four appetizers, all of which were basically half off during Happy Hour! Not that anything is bargain priced, but for high quality sushi and presentation, it replaces a dinner meal at a more reasonable price. Very attentive service focused on making our afternoon pleasurable. Fresh fish, creative menu, and visual presentation above par! A real treat!

    This was my first time at the restaurant as my girlfriend had recommended. The food was very good. I did find it funny that the mushroom appetizer had no mushrooms in it, but it was the shape and look of the salmon en-wrapped in avocado and the aioli sauce. We liked it so much we ordered a second. Also, the XXX roll was very good, and not overly hot as you would think with the Jalapeno inside. Overall, food was great, but it was very noisy, so took off a point as I found it hard to talk with out really speaking up. We were in the line of traffic flow from the kitchen, so next time maybe would try to get a corner table.

    The worst Hapa in Colorado. There were about six people in the restaurant yet the servers were too busy talking to each other to actually wait on tables. The bartender took about 20 minutes to give us a shot of sake. The waiter kept bringing out the wrong dishes because he read the sushi sheet wrong. Will not be going back. Ever.

    My date and I are both visiting from out of state and this restaurant came highly recommended. As sushi lovers, we were pleased with the variety presented on the menu. We chose five different rolls and were disappointed by all of them. The biggest problem was the poor construction of each roll, falling apart even on the serving plate. Fish was basically pretty bland. The one big plus was a wonderful, cheerful waitress.

    Went here on first date, specifically asked for a quieter table, originally was sat at a table merely two feet on either side from another table, literally a fold out was all that was missing to connect the table to the one next to it. No privacy at all. Was later sat at a more secluded table but the noise still makes it difficult to talk. waiter came to greet us and looked completely disheveled, wrinkled shirt, unkempt hair, nasty beard and basically a person you didn't want handling your food. We ordered our sushi, consisting of five rolls and various nigiri. Food took a long time to come out to the table. Amongst the order was a spicy yellowtail roll, philadelphia roll, and upon the advice of several others, the multiple orgasm rol
