A word from Hapa Sushi Grill and Sake Bar Lodo
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.

    I frequent Hapa... always a good experience. Guess a bad one was bound to pop up. Busy night, so understandable, but service was awful. Food arrived but was taken away.. twice, they made a mistake to bring another table's food over. Eventually, 2/3 in our party ate. One never got the food. Took a long time. It was the waitress' first night so we'll cut them some slack. Spoke to the manager to cancel the 1/3 who still hadn't eaten an hour later... he apologized for the problems and hooked it up with a gift card for a future visit. We will be back and love Hapa but, again, just speaking the truth for a poor experience one night, which the manager did his best to amend.

    My husband and I have had sushi all around the usa and by far this was not our favorite. The nori was way to chewy and got stuck in out teeth. The sticky rice was dry and hard. We never had the "OMG this is so good" moment. The name of the rolls are fun but that's all that needs to be said about this restaurant.

    We've been to a few of their other locations and were shocked at how poor the food was. Honestly I've had better sushi from City Market. One roll tasted like it came from the refrigerator from a few days ago. Perhaps they are seeing a drop in volume and therefore not able to order as much fresh fish?

    I loooove when I get great service and the server has a great personality too! Carley was our server and was awesome! The guy who took me on the date here has a tendency to be needy/annoying and she handled it perfectly! If I was serving I would've lost my patience a while ago. (I did on the date) luckily her charm and the good sushi, beer and great atmosphere kept me happy! The sushi was really good and delicious, it did fall apart easily though. It's definitely not the best rolled but hey it's all going in your stomach anyways. I'll defintely be back but next time probably with a couple girlfriends or a group of people.

    I thought the service was a bit slow and impersonal. This location may have a bigger dining area but I feel the other location I've been to has a much better feel to it. The food was okay - sometimes ambiance can affect the taste of the meal. Probably won't go out of the way to go back to this location when I can have a better dining experience at the other ones.

    I had only eaten at the Hapa Sushi in Cherry Creek before, so it was great to find this location when we went downtown to attend a theater production. The tuna did not seem quite as fresh as usual, but then this was Sunday evening. Every thing else was very, very good. And the service was beyond outstanding: attentive, efficient, and gracious.

    This restaurant should not be rated above two. They advertise valet parking which didn't exist. The waitress brought our order and then disappeared for long periods of time - we waited to order additional sushi, and we waited to get water refilled and we gave up on further cocktails. Only the bill arrived on time. The sushi was also disappointing though the fish quality was good. Rolls and nigiri both self destructed when we tried to pick them up. Skip this one.

    The first time at napa sushi lodo. I found the food very interesting with new sushi items I've never seen before. The ambiance was nice with a friendly wait staff. The restaurant was very busy yet noise level was a 2level. It was quite enjoyable and I do plan to go back and try several other items on the menu.

    We had a graduation dinner, but did not know exactly when we would get there. We were running late and they worked with us. Good food, good service, great time! Parking was hellish and it resulted in us ending our dinner in a rush in order to make the meters...and that was all three cars. 2 hours, 2 blocks away. Barely made it, so watch out for the lodo site and plan for it.

    I've had sushi before and hated it. I went along with the group preference for sushi at Hapa Sushi Grill and Sake Bar in Lodo, and it changed my entire opinion of sushi! I loved it! We had several selections all of which were delectable. And if you have the opportunity, choose Kourtney for your server. She was wonderful - so much so that we tried to hire her for our company!

    I went to Hapa while in Denver for a convention. My first thought was - sushi in land-locked denver, it can't be good! I was SO wrong. Not only was the service excellent, the food was amazing. The group I was with ordered a bunch of rolls for everyone to share. Every roll had its own unique flavor and was fresh, flavorful, and delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgable and helped us make some great choice. The Saki was also delicious…..the Fresh and Light was our favorite!!
