    It was pretty inside, but the food was incredibly mediocre and the service was sub-par at best. Also, why is the vibe sports bar but yet has romantic lighting? Pick a theme! It was also incredibly noisy because the host sat everyone next to eachother - even though the restaurant was completely empty and there was plenty of room to spread us out so we didn’t have to hear everyone’s conversations (not to mention we are still in a pandemic, sooo probably best to keep people more apart anyway? Lol.) Extremely underwhelming experience and we won’t be back.

    My daughter chose this restaurant because it's her birthday, and she said it had good reviews and wanted to try something new. It was a bad snow day so I called in to tell them we were going to be late for our 8pm reservation and we were told we can come in anytime up to close at 10pm. We got there a little before 9pm. We waited a minute or so for somebody to notice us, and the guy began to lead us to a table, but stopped mid-way saying the table still has to be cleared. Mind you, there were a lot of empty tables because there were only 3-4 groups of people there. We waited about 5mins for him to clear a table. After that he said, our table is ready. NO, HE DIDN'T LEAD US TO OUR TABLE. He just said our table is in the corner and menu is on a QR code on the table. I had to ask where it is because it wasn't that obvious where it was and he still didn't lead us to our table, he just pointed. Seriously, it only takes a sec to lead us to the table and he can't do that?? Once we sat down, we waited 15mins for a server to come ask us what we want to drink. At least, the server was friendly. I ordered the tuna poke bowl - it was good except it looked more like an appetizer size-wise but it was $21! It was nothing really special compared to other places I've gotten poke bowls. My daughter got the udon but she was very disappointed - it didn't look like udon and it was soggy, overcooked noodles. She did not even eat it. I liked the flavor, she didn't, but either way, it was soggy noodles and that was $21! Not worth it at all! My other daughter did like her kimchi fried rice but I don't think you can get fried rice wrong. The Yakitori was just okay - 9 bucks for one stick. The only thing we enjoyed was the pork belly steam buns. All in all, for what I spent, this place is so not worth it. I feel bad for my daughter as it was her birthday. She didn't enjoy her meal at all. Not recommending this place for dinner.

    We did the omakase experience and it was worth every penny! We chose to go on a Monday and it worked out perfectly. We were the other people at the omakase seats so we had a very personal and intimate dinner. Our meal included about 20 different bites and each one was amazing!

    The sushi was amazing - best ever. But maybe we ordered the wrong things otherwise. Miso soup, Yakitori Platter, and pork/shrimp dumplings were all so salty we couldn't finish them. We did have good service; maybe just don't know how to order well.

    We went for the Omakase. It was extraordinary experience in every fashion. Chef Duy Pham was at the helm, entertaining, story telling, giving insight to the selection of the 30 some fish we had over our 20+ courses. Having cut up the whole fish into its beautiful steaks and sashimi slices, Chef grabs some of the most special parts of the fish for the Omakase. For example, Chef prepared a course of stripped Bonita three ways, the third of which were the cheeks. In another course when butchering the fish there was some roe that he put through an extensive marinations and topped a fish course with them. I could go on. We love Omakase and have been to some fantastic itzakayas, this one, D Pham’s inside Foraged was outstanding. By the way, Chef’s recommendation for sake was delicious, perfectly match and balanced to the many exploding flavors. We finished our evening at the bar downstairs. A great selection of bourbons and a clever list of cocktails. A very enjoyable evening!

    Food was amazing! We ordered a bunch of small plates. My only issue is that the menu is quite comprehensive/ difficult to navigate and I've read some reviews that a lot of the sushi rolls are redundant. I'd suggest editing down the menu by about 1/3rd.

    For the price point, I expected more. The sashimi seemed okay, however I did end up getting sick a few hours after eating. Not sure what may have caused that, but any of the hot items were severely over salted. I could barely eat the edamame. I even overheard the waitstaff mention that one of the cooks oversalts, but nothing was really addressed as the staff seemed distracted. Bartenders were knowledgeable and kind, but it took a while to order as well as close out with a nearly empty restaurant. I don’t think I’d return or recommend.

    I had higher expectations for this spot based on their menu descriptions. However, in the end I was disappointed in all aspects from taste, service, and price point. (And, of course, moving to CO from the Bay Area, I'm still on the hunt for the REALLY good food.) Fish quality was fine, but portion was very frugal. And using imitation crab in a roll for their price is a huge no. It's a lot of show with no real sustenance. Would I recommend? No. Will I return? No.

    We were downtown at 7 grand for a scotch tasting. The food and service was excellent. We were there around 9pm. No hot food was available after 9 which was a bit disappointing, the food we did get was excellent. We were hoping for a option to have hot food and 1 hour before close I thought was a bit early to close the hot side of the kitchen. The staff and food was of good value and it wasn't too noisy for a date night.

    I went to foraged Saturday for dinner had a reservation for six people waited 45 minutes before a server ever acknowledged my group…tried not to make a big deal out of it but no one wanted to help as I sat and watched our drinks sit at the bar undelivered. I spoke to the manager and he pretty much just told us that we had to deal with it when everyone else around us was being served promptly and appropriately. I will definitely not be back due to the lack of service and lack of trying to correct the situation on management’s part.

    We had a girls night dinner after the ballet! The food was great - everything had a little kick to it - the edamame is served with garlic, the dumplings also had a little spice and so did the sushi rolls we had: dragon and spider. It was yummy but wasn’t expecting it.

    Very loud with overly intoxicated people shouting and singing as if it was a pub, not a nice Japanese restaurant. To be fair, 'twas St. Patrick's Day weekend so people are a little bit rowdier than usual. But they could have done a better job of trying to control it. So it did not affect the rest of the gas in the restaurant. The light fixture on the ceiling is a little weird in the color changing. It stays on green most of the time which just reminds me of those neon signs at bail bondsman offices. The food was good. Nothing amazing but nothing bad. The drinks however, were terrible and I tried to fix it a few times to add things to it and could not salvage. I was a mixologist for 7 years so that carries weight
