Sushi
Japango, set in a historic building just west of Broadway on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO, offers a dynamic combination of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisine. Guests will enjoy a relaxed experience in an award winning space designed by nationally acclaimed architect, Scott Rodwin. In many ways this wildly popular restaurant feels like a direct extension of Boulder itself—sophisticated, casual and healthy. // It’s is the perfect place for a first date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends. In addition to an elegant—yet intimate and unpretentious—dining room, Japango features a large sushi bar, a Pearl Street patio, a back patio with fireplace, an enclosed patio that seats up to 10, and a lively bar and lounge area. // Japango also hosts one of the best happy hours in town and is home to Boulder's original all-you-can-eat sushi night. // The full bar offers unique house cocktails, an extensive sake menu and the largest Japanese whisky selection in Colorado.

The food was delicious-the crispy brussel sprouts were amazing and the sushi was all very fresh. However, even with a reservation, we were kept waiting 20 minutes and the service was very very slow.

We love Japango and usually have a great experience in terms of good and service. Unfortunately, this time we kept having to remind our waitress to bring things and they ran out of food so we could get some sushi we wanted. Everything we had we loved.

While the food was fantastic, it took OVER an hour for us to receive our sushi order (the bulk of our dinner) - and half an hour after we asked about it. The restaurant was not full (a Monday night), so there was no reason for such poor service. This was not just an annoyance, but with a Type 1 diabetic teen at the table, actually became dangerous. I am sad to say this, because I really do enjoy their rolls, especially the salmon roll with cream cheese (something I would normally avoid). If they could get their act together, this would be my #1 go-to.

My family ventured in from Denver where we were staying on vacation (in from Atlanta) and happened to book a reservation for this restaurant on a night where Happy Hour goes on until they close, so the restaurant was very busy which is likely why the service was a little bit slow. However, the manager noticed that we'd waited a fair amount of time for our entrees and without our even asking, offered his apologies and then some. We respect any business that operates in this manner, and will certainly dine here again on our next trip to Boulder, as the sashimi was superb and reasonably priced, and the appetizers were all very tasty.

Love this place ... I've been going here for years and it's my absolute favorite sushi restaurant in Boulder. Incredible food, the service was especially outstanding this time around, our server Hannah was top notch. It's pricey but it's sushi so what do you expect. Totally worth it and next time I'm in town I'll definitely want to go again.

Very fun downtown Boulder restaurant. Good service, nice options on the menu. Lighting is a little low for the very small print on the menu...

The food was extremely overpriced and we our server was overwhelmed. We had to get our own menus for the kids and they forgot their meal. It was $300 for 2 adults and 2 little kids. I will NOT be back.

The “1/2 off wine list was not updated, which was frustrating. Then, we ordered the 56.00 bottle from standard menu, only to be told that was out too. So, they presented my table with a 126.00 bottle, which of course I yielded to. The reservation stated it was a business meal, so obviously I’m not going to say no when pressured in front of customers.
Thanks for the oversell Japango. Update your wine list.
