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 that you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

They know how to take a reservation but they don't know how to hold it! The wait was way too long.

Food is good, service is good. Extremely loud and tables are very close together. We had to shout to have a conversation.

Troy and his team are just amazing. We keep going back at least twice a month. We go for simply family dinner with our kids and most recently for my sister's birthday before a concert at Boulder Theater. I am always so happy with everything here. We love Hapa.

We had a really good waitress and the food was great. We were a party of 5 and sat at a 4-top which wasn’t the most comfortable. I realize they reserve the booths for larger parties but it would’ve been nice to have at least a bigger table or pushed two tables together as we were all scrunched up.

So good. We love it here. The only bummer was that we go there a ton. At least once a month. We had a note in the reservation that it was our anniversary and they never said happy anniversary. Not a big deal and we don’t expect anything for free but just saying something would have felt good to us.

Disappointing. Heavily battered tempura dishes were unrecognizable. Miso soup was... meh. Sashimi relied on garnishes more than the fish itself.

We go to Hapa often. Make reservations and expect it to be loud, very loud.
The special cocktails are great and the special sushi rolls are always great.

We reserved a place at the back bar for a 5 year anniversary. No spots there and we had a tiny table stuck in the corner of the front area.
I HAVE to be gluten free due to celiac, and requested gluten free items. We of course had to pay extra (which I think it totally unfair due to a disability and true allergy) for GF items. Our waiter was very slow to get back to us. We requested more ginger and another glass of wine when our food came and it was delivered as we were finishing. Service was poor, food was so-so, and the bill was HIGH. We have eaten at Hapa many times in the past, and we also always return there for our anniversary as this was where we had our first date. Next year we will go else where. I dont really see any reason to go back to Hapa. Food is so-so, super expensive, it's super crowded (even on a Sunday), service is bad, it's loud and just not worth it.

superb sushi, sashimi, nigiri, excellent service. It is usually crowded, as you would expect from a restaurant this good, and the tables are quite close to each other, so make new friends! Prices are reasonable. Do not stray from the sushi/sashimi/nigiri -- that's what they do best.

Wa are fans of Hapa. The Sushi is good and the service. I have Celiacs, and for me their offering is great. I always get the Aspen Roll without the Sake Butter, and the Miso Soup. They have an excellent bar, with great cocktails, and an excellent Saki offering.

So far the Boulder location is my least favorite of the Hapa locations. My wife and I have enjoyed the Landmark location for years and recently moved further north and west. The food was great. Our server was professional, friendly and fun. The space felt cramped and noisy.
