    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and our server, Ashton, made it even more memorable. She was excellent from the very beginning. She provided us with thoughtful suggestions and found the perfect balance between being attentive to our needs without being intrusive. The only downside to the evening was realizing there is no Blue Sushi Saki Grill in the Northeast. Please consider opening a location in Philadelphia!

    This has long been my goto Sushi place in LoDo. The atmosphere is always good and the sushi interesting. Prices are quite good too. Rojo tuna roll, spicy gringo, inari tofu, plus a Kirin lager came in around $50 plus service.

    Mid evening Saturday reservation, busy but not packed out. Great choice of sushi, with many vegan options. I had spicy gringo, which was a bit too spicy at times, but beautifully prepared and presented. Also had some random nigiri and the vegan fried tofu-wrapped rice was a star. Sake to drink,came to $100 for two. Would be easy to spend more but they’re happy to order as you go. Great to leave a restaurant satisfied but without a bursting gut.

    Not what I expected. Server wasn’t familiar with the rolls, rice was hard, but worst of all was they were serving farm raised fish. Will never return. A complete waste of $100+.
    Blue Sushi Sake Grill - DenverResponded on April 10, 2024
    Thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that your experience didn't meet your expectations. We strive to provide our guests with the best service and quality food. We appreciate your comments about the rice and the unfamiliarity of our server with the rolls, and we will certainly address them with our team there. We understand that you found our farm-raised fish disappointing, but we are all about transparency. The only farm-raised seafood that we serve is one type of salmon and our eel. Every seafood restaurant serves farm-raised fish, they just aren't open about it.

    Slow service even when it was not too packed on Wed night. We were surprised that its rate is 4.6 (Google) given that the sushi is not good, the menu is terrible and the service is below average. The sushi rice was chewy than normal which made us feel it was not fresh.

    Not a place for a single diner; 45 min wait for food. Manager was kind enough to apologize but… also more of a roll place than a true sushi bar experience. Obviously ok for many people as evidenced by the large amount of multiple person tables.

    Torn banquette seats, loud music, and bland food were features of this dining experience. The servers were nice, though they couldn’t recommend anything in the menu. Food arrived quickly. Sadly, it was pretty tasteless. For the prices here I expected exceptional sushi, this wasn’t the case. The toro was very pricey and not like any other toro I’ve ever had. Lean and flavorless I wonder if it even was toro. I wouldn’t return.

    My boyfriend and I have been coming to Blue Sushi many times in the past year. It’s the place we had our first date and last night we celebrated our 1 year at the same table. Unfortunately, the service was very poor. We didn’t get our drinks until 20 minutes after we sat down, and when we did order our food/ apps/ drinks, almost everything came out at once, or very close to each other. It was definitely quantity over quality with the service and food. We used to love the Crispy Rice Cakes but lately when we come, the rice is over fried to fully enjoy it. The rolls were great though, but again the service was subpar. The good sushi does not makeup for the bad service. We will be finding a new sushi spot and hopefully things here can get back on the right track.

    We sat at the sushi bar to interact with staff. Staff was attentive and made suggestions based upon our tastes. Many items suggested were delicious. If you stick to more traditional choices I would say they are just average. Go with the suggestions and you won’t be disappointed.
