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!

    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.

  • What happened on Sunday?
    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

    I went to Hapa for my birthday dinner with a group of friends, and they were so accommodating when more people kept showing up. Our server was so great and offered sampling of different sakes when I was trying to remember the type I had ordered during my previous visit. As always, the food was amazing! One of my favorites.

    Slow Sunday eve after the holiday. The servers mentally checked out, bathrooms were dirty and out of toilet paper. Food was fine but not great. I don't know what happened, as It is normally really good and clean...Think I may skip any future Sundays as the staff may not be the same.

    Sushi is always good but the smell of the tempura oil is not appealing. This was the first time in 5 visits that the restaurant had an overwhelming smell of oil. I requested outdoor seating because the oil smell sticks to your clothing and hair. The outdoor patio was very nice and the wait staff were excellent. I will be returning but hope the oil smell is taken care of.

    I am always blown away with the food at Hapa, but this past visit, it was the service that really set them above! We had to wait a whole 10 minutes for our reservation ::sarcasm:: and above the apology, the staff made sure we were taken care of with appetizers and smiles! Everyone was very apologetic about the short wait and did everything they could to make sure that we were taken care of. It did not go unnoticed!!! THANKS HAPA!

    The sushi isn't for the folks who like lots of raw fish and creative rolls; it's more for the beginner who prefers cooked rolls. The last two times we've been there we've gotten tables in the middle of the room or right by the door; I recommend calling ahead to request a table or booth that isn't in the middle of heavy traffic. THe place has been hopping two of the three times we've been there. Definitely the right place for a double date or to start off a festive night out.
