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.

Sushi was good as always and tried the chocolate cake for dessert and was pleasantly surprised as it was delicious.

My wife and I had dinner reservations for 6 and we didn't leave until a little after 8. The service was great nor were we pressured for the check. The server took his time to explain the varieties of sake and went at length to explain why they do not serve more than one warmed version. We had a flight of what may have been their best and overall I just don't like cold sake. Had I not let a 23 year old convince me..I would've had it warmed and it would've tasted amazing but that's my experience. The music and atmosphere is actually their downfall. If you like sushi, hip hop and R&B, then you will enjoy it. I doesn't fit the contemporary Japanese art and decor. Lastly, I recommend asking them to go light on the aioli.

Very very very expensive, more than most nyc sushi places, more pricey than downtown 4-5 star Manhattan places and the supposed “happy hour pricing” slinks back and back in the past 2 yrs from the many years long 530pm start to 5pm to now 430pm which obviously no employed person can possibly attend. So perhaps the pricing is for those from old money. Regarding the Greenwood Village site: Absolutely reserve for not walk in or the manager will make you feel as if there is something wrong with you for not pre-scheduling.

Very enjoyable, sat on sidewalk patio which was fun spot, lots of people watching. Good sushi. They were running very low on most sake though, which was disappointing. Great staff! Approximately expensive for Cherry Creek locale.

Nobody wished my husband a happy birthday. Why even ask for special notes on the Open Table reservation if no one is going to acknowledge what is written?

I recommend sitting outside, where we did. Even just standing in the lobby, it's super loud and boisterous inside. Unless of course that's your thing! Very unique sushi options. We enjoyed trying 4 different rolls and it was more than enough for 2 people. We also loved their calamari appetizer. Great wine and beer options including on their "specials" menu. We loved it and will definitely be back for special occasions. It's pricey though so it won't be a regular stop on our restaurant rotation.

We went for happy hour. There was a great selection of menu items which were all delicious. We are particular fans of the poke (better than what we've had in Hawaii) and the Magic Mushrooms. The pace of the appetizer service was well done and our server was awesome! Nice outside area, too!

This was our first time dining for happy hour and we’ll definitely be back. Great food specials that were very reasonably priced. Pork gyoza were delicious. Sauce on the chicken skewers was tasty. Salmon sashimi is always super fresh and the rolls were great. Only minor complaint was some of the rolls weren’t rolled particularly tight and the ingredients were a little loose. The rolls are a little rice heavy but they still tasted great.
Best part was our server. She was extremely attentive, quick and accommodating.

Had a hard time figuring out menu with sushi. Waiter offered that if we didn’t like what we ordered, he’d change it. It was pretty obvious we didn’t care for it as left most uneaten, but no offer to change. I take responsibility for not asking more questions but was so disappointed by the sushi we ordered.

Thankfully we also ordered a salad with seared ahi. The sushi description didn’t highlight that our pick—orgasmic something???-would be covered in a warm, creamy sauce. It was not at all what either of us expected and were so psyched to have what we recognize as sushi. Fresh fish, rice and a “fresh” flavor. Our salmon in the sushi we ordered possibly was cooked but if so, it didn’t taste fresh. Maybe the sauce covered it up. Will ask more questions next time … somewhere else.

It was a good experience overall but there were some mishaps. I guess what was upsetting is that it was my best friend’s birthday and our server Megan did not acknowledge it though we mentioned it before hand.
I would have paid for desert but it just wasn’t as special.
The food was delicious though.
