They “lost” our ticket so rolls didn’t come out for about 40min after we ordered. When they did make it to our table, each roll came out every 15min instead of all together. They weren’t fresh and everything was super salty.

We love sushi, and we were so impressed with Bamboo sushi last night. Their food was fresh, creative, and outstanding. Their staff was attentive and friendly. The sushi chef talked a lot with me about the sustainable seafood movement at the restaurant, and it's awesome to know that you can feel good about what you're eating. The Friday the 13th role with spicy, sustainable salmon was out of this world. We also loved their miso eggplant appetizer! This is my new favorite sushi place in Colorado, and we will be back soon!

Our server had too many tables to attend to so our dining experience took 2 hours for a table of two to have 1 drink and a meal. Great food but marginal service from a very knowledgeable server. Unfortunate for us on this particular night.

We did the omakase. It was fabulous but since the bartender was our waiter there was times we had to wait to eat our food because we wanted an explanation.

Our waiter chose amazing choices for our dinner; I cannot speak highly enough of their eggplant. However as a high end “special occasion” venue I’d be hesitant to return. My wife and I chose this as our delayed honeymoon dinner venue and were mildly disappointed in the lack of intimacy. Great food, incredible service, but the ambience could be improved.

The cocktails were the best part of the meal. I think if you're going to do Sushi in Denver you're better off with Sushi Den.

Online reviews lead us to this restaurant. No disappointments here! The restaurant is modern with Asian inspired decor and its menu is a great play on traditional Japanese fare, but with modern twists that do not disappoint. The eggplant appetizer, seaweed salad and pork buns are excellent. My favorite was the grilled oysters and for my wife the green machine roll. Bamboo sushi is now flagged as a favorite of ours and we’ll be back.

Walked in at 6:30 and was pleasantly surprised that happy hour was going until 7pm. Also had a 15% off coupon so we ate a lot for a little. Service was great, so was the food. Not a ton of sushi rolls but plenty of everything else!

We are here because we wanted great sushi and love Sushi Den but wanted to try a different spot. Our expectations were high after speaking with our concierge at our hotel who raves about this place. She was right! I’d give it a 12 out of 10!!!! Better than Sushi Den!!

Food was great! Service was great. The person serving the water was not friendly at all. Couldn’t understand it. We made eye contact, said hello, thank you several times - no smile, no acknowledgment, nothing. Almost surly. He must have been to our table 10 times (which was great) but the lack of any sort of response was bizarre. It dampened the experience.

We arrived there and the mood was blah. We were seated at a small table in the corner despite the restaurant being relatively empty. The area was extremely hot with no ventilation on a 90 + degree day. The busboy brought our water and slammed them on the table and walked away without acknowledging us. We waited about 10
minutes and the waitress showed up. We informed her the area we were in was unacceptably hot. She said it was because the “garage door” was open. I asked if they had a/c. She said we could move outside. We did— we left. Didn’t get to try the food,but the attitude and atmosphere are the mood. The dining room had to have been 90 degrees. Unacceptable for a high end sushi place. The lack of caring by the staff told us it was tine to leave. There are at least 3 other sushi restaurants in Lohi. All are better choices
