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.

This is my first visit to the new location and it lives up to the other locations. Met a friend for lunch and was able to do a reservation for outdoor dining. It’s a little chilly on cooler days as the outside dining is all shaded (very nice on warm days!). The nigiri was amazing as always. I had the shake and himachi. So so good! Calamari is excellent as well. Will for sure come back to this location when I’m in Cherry Creek North

Sushi lunch sampler and shashimi lunch sampler all good, no complaints. This is the second time I've been here in the new cherry creek location and I have to say the food is better than the old cherry creek location.

Everything we ordered was fresh and well prepared. Had to ask for soy sauce and water a few times but even so, Service was outstanding. No negatives. May be important for some to know that outdoor seating is a narrow space and servers as well as guests pass by closely. Everyone was wearing a mask if they weren’t seated so it was not an issue for us.

I’m so frustrated by this place the food is quite good (and I’ve had great sushi), but this is the second trip that something disappointing has happened. The last time two family members got sick after eating there (and they ate from the same dish) and this time there was a long hair in my food. The Mgt said they thought it was banana leaves (I had the traditionally roasted pork bowl) but upon further reflection I just don’t think so. And it didn’t help that I then witnessed a young man in uniform enter the dining area throwing his long hair around (evidently he’d just come on duty), pulling his hands through it. I’ve had traditionally prepared Hawaiian meals and never had strips of leaves found in my dish. BUT, Mgt was super gracious in dealing with the issue but I think that’s our last visit.

We came in before 5 for an early dinner. We didn’t have reservations. There were some people already eating. We went to get a table and were told because they have reservations at 5:00 coming in that wouldn’t be able to seat us. They were “fully committed with reservations that evening”. We weren’t given a wait time. We were just turned away. As we walked down the street, I popped in open table to see if there were any reservations for the evening. They had openings at 5:15. So I made a reservation since that seemed to be the only way to eat there. When we came back, they said they had found a table for us after all 🙄 and then proceeded to seat us in the melt random table in literally the corner of the restaurant. Their host staff was completely unprofessional and made our dinner very hard to enjoy from the get go. They were not welcoming or accommodating. I was very disappointed.

The sake selection is not that great and the house sake I tried was terrible. They made up their own descriptive names for the house sakes so you cant tell the sake quality and the brewery names. Not sure why? The sushi were just ok-nothing great. The service was attentive and friendly and they had a separate gluten-free menu and they were careful with making sure with replacing the soy sauce with a gluten-free one. Paying almost $40 for two orders of so-so sushi was kind of disappointing. Sushi rice was not of good quality and the soy sauce was too salty.

Staff is always nice, food is good but pricy (especially sushi) except for a few items that are not so easy to spot on the menu (as my son says: “Duh, we are in Cherry Creek”). A good place for dining with friends or family, not date material but an upscale friendly place.

We dined on a Saturday night and sat on the patio on the St Paul side of the street. The Monkey Brain appetizer was really good as was the Scotty's Salmon (sashimi) and hamachi. The shrimp in the Pakalolo Shrimp dish was very good, grilled but the dipping sauce was too runny. You dip the shrimp in it and the sauce would just run off completely so you are not able to taste the sauce. The toffee banana bread dessert was warm and good but lacked toffee flavor and the strawberries seemed out of place.

If you want to feel like your eating in a cafeteria where they will kick you out at the 90 min mark and lecture you about masks while your wearing one. Definitely only sit outside if you want to feel like your at a normal restaurant. Sushi so so......won’t be back.

JJDenver, I am sorry you felt rushed during your hour and half dining experience. We try to communicate clearly that we do put a time limit on reservations. This is something we have had to do to accommodate our guest wanting reservations but are only able to seat 50% of the restaurant do to the Covid 19 requirements. We certainly can’t wait until we are able to seat 100% of the restaurant and not have time limits. Als far as mask go we are just trying to keep our staff and guest safe.

It didn’t seem very busy, but we only saw our server Spencer 4 times. Frequently found water and cocktail glasses needed refill and waiting a while someone to come by the table. However, the food there never disappoints! It’s amazing. I just wish the service matched to help celebrate a special occasion (which was never mentioned)
