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. In many ways this wildly popular restaurant feels like a direct extension of Boulder itself--sophisticated, casual and healthy. Guests enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in an award winning space designed by nationally acclaimed architect Scott Rodwin. It’s a dynamic setting, the perfect place for a first date, a family gathering, or a night out with friends. The dining room is intimate and lively while unpretentiously elegant. Japango features a large central sushi bar, vibrant colors, and a rich material palette of wood, stone and metal, which always provides an upscale dining experience. In addition to offering one of the best happy hours in town, Japango is also home to Boulder's original all-you-can-eat sushi night. The restaurant's full bar hosts unique house cocktails and an extensive sake menu.

Food was good as always. Service could have been better, we have been many times when it was busier and service has always been good. Today was not as busy and service was slow and our server was not attentive at all.

My fiancé and I came for Valentine’s Day dinner ... got a seat at the sushi bar (as promised). Love watching the chefs create such beautiful plates and interacting with them, really fun friendly group! Service was easily five stars, food was better! We will be back again without a doubt. One of our favorite places. Thank you!

Our family of four went to dinner on Valentine's Day. Our table was ready at our reservation time. It took quite a while for our server to take our drink order. The manager dropped off a bowl of yukky brussel sprouts to snack on. Our meals were good. Restaurant is small and tight and very crowded. But it was a holiday. I have been there several times for lunch and it was a more enjoyable experience.

Good food, mediocre service and pleasant environment. Service here is inconsistent. On this occasion, we didn’t receive water, napkins or acknowledgement from our server for more than 10 minutes after being seated. The cocktails arrived after the appetizers. The water glasses were only refilled upon request, and the server was not attentive.
The food was fresh and had nice flavor. The Otoro Nigiri special was excellent, melt in your mouth; but also expensive @ $18 for two pieces.
Go here for the food, but expect relaxed service.

Love the food and service at Japango! Have dined there many times and never been disappointed. The menu is creative (lobster potstickers!!) and the fish are super fresh. Ready to go back again

Japango is delicious, but a little overpriced, I guess with the lack of options, they get away with it. Service is usually slow, so don't try and go for a quick lunch.

Unfortunately, part of our order got lost, so we had to inquire about our food, and ended up canceling it altogether after waiting around 30-40 minutes. We come all the time, so this was definitely an anomaly. Regardless, it was handled well once pointed out. The food and service we did get was great, as per usual. I think some wires just got crossed this time! Don't miss the pork belly - I finally tried it for the first time, and it was great!

Food and service both outstanding however still overpriced. Doesn’t stop me from eating here; just with less frequency.

My wife and I have been going to Japango for about 10 years now and although it has grown in size, the food, atmosphere and wait staff have remained consistently very good.
