Japanese
Sushi Sasa is designed to offer Denver the opportunity to enjoy Traditional and "New Style" Japanese cuisine harmoniously beneath one roof. The seasonal, healthy, beautiful and affordable tasting menu compliments the fully functioning sushi bar bridging the gap between East coast innovation and West coast charm. Bilingual chefs man the sushi bar at the rear of the zen-like space and offer up exotic fish and produce from around the world with the heart of the cuisine remaining Japanese. With a wonderful sake and wine list and a cozy downstairs lounge, Sushi Sasa is a perfect place for a business lunch or a nice dinner with friends.

Our server was excellent, but she had far too many tables to attend to alone. It was more expensive then some other decent sushi spots, so the experience could’ve been better. I would recommend lower prices on some items.

Always amazing sushi. Brought my husband and father in law here for dinner on Thursday night after a day of skiing. Quick service and quality sushi. The pink lady and hamachi jalapeño were our favorites.

We made a reservation for 6:45 but weren’t seated until 7:10. The Service was below average but the food and ambiance was so extraordinary that they made up for the wait and service.

Sushi was great and so was the service!
Getting food out of the kitchen was a little slow, but nothing extraordinary.
Definitely get the pink lady roll!
Also the $5K toilets were kind of funky

The drinks and food where great! I love a good cocktail and the match martini was pretty great. Our dinner and apps where also really good. It is on the pricier side compared to other sushi spots in Denver but it was pretty delicious.
The only complaint is we made a reservation for 9pm. We arrived at 8:52pm and checked in. We were told we should be seated soon and in the meantime we are welcome to enjoy a cocktail in the downstairs bar and when our sushi bar seats were ready they would come get us... from the bar area downstairs. 15 minutes when by... 25 minutes went by... then at 35 minutes I was pretty frustrated. I walked upstairs and asked the hostess if the wait was typical after making a reservation. She had said not always but they can't force a party to release their seats (which I agree with but here's the kicker) ... she then asked my name again and realized THEY had made a mistake and gave our seats to another couple. I was pretty calm honestly.. just really hungry. My wife and I asked if we could just be seated anywhere at that point and they accommodated. The crazy thing though... no one actually ever apologized for the mistake... they just said "this happens sometimes". Once we got over what had just happened we enjoyed our dinner and our waitress was great.

THE FOOD WAS ONE OF THE BEST JAPANESE FOOD I HAVE EVERY HAD. THE WAYGU TARTARE WAS SUBTEL AND DELICIOUS. THE WINE LIST IS EXPENSIVE AND RATHER POOR. ALL IN ALL THIS WAS AN EXCELLENT DINNER.

It's very hard to find a quality sushi place that is open during the day. Today, our luck changed. The food was terrific.

The food was fantastic at this restaurant! It is very new and modern! The grilled artichoke was delicious as an appetizer and for the sushi, the diablo roll was one of the best sushi rolls I have ever had!! Great place to celebrate something special!

Food took forever to arrive. might have been behind a few big tables but then please have waitstaff let the dinner know what is going on. 30 min to get a bowl of miso followed by 45 min to get sushi is really long.

This was our 3rd time dining at Sushi Sasa. It is our favorite restaurant in Denver. We always sit at the sushi bar because we love to see these chefs do you all of their magic and my husband has weird allergies to many sushi ingredients.
The Service from all of the staff is top notch and their food is the best. On the latest visit, we were celebrating our anniversary and they brought us each a beautiful glass of champagne. I love this place.

Sushi Sasa is one our favorite places to go in Denver. On this visit the selection of fish was outstanding and the quality equally excellent. However, our service was very unsatisfactory which diminished the overall experience for us. We told our server what we were starting with but she never came back to take the rest of our order. We also ran out of sake and again, she was no where to be found to re-order some. The restaurant was not packed by any stretch. Disappointing but we will return for the great fish.

For the past 3 years we have dined at Sushi Sasa for my daughter’s birthday celebration. The first year we were seated in the main dining area, had great food and service. Last year, they put us in a private room lacking ambience had mediocre service & fine food. This year they had us in the over-flow dining room which was vacant except for us. The main dining room had only a handful of diners when we arrived at 5:30 and around 10 when we left. The room we were seated in was very quiet and lacked ambience. Our server changed halfway through our meal and both servers were disappointing. The restaurant had run out of two kinds of fish that we had ordered. One of the two had been specifically recommended by our server. The kids soda had to be sent back because the syrup was missing. And finally, two of the desserts on the menu were not available either. It was a disappointing experience in nearly every way. We will not be returning.

Modern Sushi. It felt like NY/LA high standard. Felt like the only restaurant in Denver that didn’t have sports game tv playing and that was refreshing
