Sushi
The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different styles of cooking until they are something completely new: they're Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

Food was great as usual! Service was fairly slow in terms of drink refills - had to chase down waitress several times after going dry and remaining dry for a while. Location was great (first time I’ve been to this location). Hapa tends to be on expensive side so our service expectations are a bit high as well.

Hapa is always my go-to for quick, quality sushi at a reasonable price. The new dining room is pleasantly appointed. The service, in my experience, is always on point. There are generally a number of drink specials and the happy hour specials are bountiful and generous. It's a nice place for a casual date. There is a dessert featuring deep-fried bananas that I would stay away from but, even that wasn't awful. I like Happa.

Our waitress and food was fantastic - the only downside was the location of our table which was right next to the bathroom and super close to the obnoxious guests sitting really close to us because of how close tables are to each other in that section.

Great new space. Service was excellent and so was the food. Lighting was way too bright for dinner.

For a brand new facility, this place missed the mark. The lighting was too bright and had glare. The food was ok. The room lacked the fun and charm of a good sushi restaurant. There is so much good sushi in Denver in much nicer looking rooms. Go there.

They’ve just reopened and are training all new staff...and you can tell. Sushi chef can’t get the rolls to stay closed, took forever to get drinks.

All our sushi and sashimi was excellent — high-quality, great presentation, great textures and tastes. Aside from slow water refills, our server was fantastic: friendly, quick to take our order, asked about our first and second courses, and brought the check quickly when we were ready for it. Mother’s Day was the third or fourth time we’ve dined here. We really enjoy it, as do our kids (ages 11 and 7).

I've been to a lot of sushi places, and I'd definitely say this is one of the better ones. Let's start with the positives. First, the sake selection is fantastic and one of the best I've seen for any budget. I'd particularly recommend the "Black and Gold" (and that's after trying a premium flight). The sushi itself good and the menu compromised of a nice range of "beginner" sushi rolls all the way up to crazy things like the "surf and turf". I enjoyed every roll we had, and overall had a good experience.

However, I don't feel like this place has *quite* earned a 5-star review. Service was good, not outstanding. The sushi was good, but somehow lacked a bit of inspiration to me. The reason I say this is we ordered a special, the "Thai" roll. Just two days later, I can't really recall anything memorable about the roll other than to say it was good, and I tasted the spicy tuna? In my opinion, things on the specials should be inspired creations. Perhaps I'm too harsh of a critic.

TL;DR: A good sushi place in a great location. Good for a night out and excellent if you enjoy Sake.

The staff and servers were fine, but the food was not good at all. I eat sushi all the time, and I would honestly say that 2 out of the 4 rolls we ordered were the worst that I've ever had. Just bad food. I would never go back.
