With the location + the ambiance, understand this is high end Japanese Restaurant, with extremely high price.

Service was nice but the server wasn’t the best. The server(J*) had an attitude I can definitely see because we didn’t order any alcoholic beverage. But of course this is just my personal opinion. But other staffs, who took our empty plates away, who took cared pf our check (manager?) were very pleasant and super nice.

The food, I was hoping for the freshest fish with phenomenal presentation but no.. that was the most disappointing part. Maybe I should’ve tried the specialty dishes..?

The best thing was the Sushi rice. It was one of the few best ones! Uni was the freshest, and the best! but rest of fishes were mediocre-

AmaEbi was a bitter, it’s a sweet shrimp, supposed to be sweet.. Aji was too fishy, meaning not fresh... Tako was too chewy.. Other fishes, mediocre..

One suggestion, take care of your fishes, hoping for higher and better standards- It will probably make tour place the real high end Japanese cuisine.

We requested through this site to have dessert and specified it was a birthday.

Our server Brett did not mention any special occasions, did not mention the dessert at any time, he never mentioned the specials and acted like he wanted to be somewhere else.

The food was about the same as any regular cheap sushi spot. Not what you would expect from a NOBU restaurant. Small pieces of fish that was flavorless. The restaurant should be embarrassed to serve the sushi rolls we got. The rock shrimp was decent and the wine was okay.

Hands down the best Japanese culinary experience. We were celebrating our Anniversary and decided on the Omakase. Genevieve, our server, picked the best suggestions for each course. We will never forget this evening!

Every time we’ve been has been a great experience. Brian took care of us this time and was outstanding. The food is second to none here so we always opt for the wait staff to pick for us and Brian and the chefs did not disappoint! We will continue to come back again and again!

The cuisine is unbelievably delicious. I had no idea how much difference there is in Japanese restaurants it this one is IT!

Service was a little rushed but a great team of people. I think the rush was due to high demand. Excellent food.

A great Japanese restaurant. Sumptuous and cozy slice of Tokyo in Denver. One of my favorites and I missed it during the last 18 months. Was able to introduce some friends to Japanese dining and they were impressed. See you again soon!

Service was just ok. Had to wait 20 minutes for our table, despite having a reservation, so it's a popular place. The food is so incredible though, as are the drinks. The random tiktok music station was strange, but it really is an amazing place. I'll go back for sure.

Had our anniversary dinner and the food was delicious. Stand out dishes were the baked crab hand roll and the bento box dessert (best green tea ice cream I’ve ever had). We had a lovely meal but the only down side was the service. Our server was apathetic, for lack of a better word. He barely came by our table and when he was there he was looking around and not really paying attention. He did not ask if I wanted another drink, simply took my glass away and also did not ask if we wanted anything else after we had finished our first round of orders. There were other staff who seemed to pick up the slack but that was a big disappointment.

We were disappointed by 2 aspects of our dinner last night:
1 -- The service was so fast and abrupt that we hardly finished the last bite of one course before the next course appeared on the table? There was often no room for the server to put the next plates because we were still eating from the previous ones. I've never felt so rushed, and it was a shame because our friends had come to visit all the way from Hawaii.
2 -- The background music was really intrusive. We couldn't hear our friends across the table, and had to squeeze into the booth seats next to them so we could converse.
If anyone actually reads these comments, please pass them along to the restaurant. The items they address are easily fixable.
