    I have wanted to try this place for years and have heard amazing things about the food. We arrived and were sat at our table but did not get met by our server for another 20 minutes. Multiple tables were sat around us and had drinks long before we even ordered ours. Once they finally came we ordered everything as to not be left behind again. We sat for another half hour with empty water glasses and an empty drink and our appetizers had long come and gone. Our sushi order got forgotten and we were noticed for entirely too long. Our server came over and said he just talked with the kitchen and they were making it now and apologized for their tardiness. It was clearly his fault that he forgot to put it in and did not check on us. The food was fine but nothing I would put up with that service for. There are amazing sushi places in the area and this really disappointed.

    I made a reservation for 9 pm ( on open table they were offering reservations until 9:45 pm), 5 minutes later I got a call saying the kitchen closes at 9:30. Very rude server, she didn’t explain anything about the menu or the way to order. We were first time there and we basically order without knowing the best way to enjoy the menu. I order a bunch of things, she didn’t course anything and all the hot food came first and few minute later the cold dish arrived. We didn’t have any space on the table. After the owner/manager came to my table and I explained the situation the server changed magically. We arrived from a long trip and we were craving for Japanese food and after seeing over 3k reviews I thought it would be an amazing experience but it wasn’t.

    Been to a lot of restaurants, especially in Denver. Being stuffed into a cold basement, which above is a seemingly wonderful dining environment, isn’t a great intro to a restaurant you’ve heard great things about for years. Food was good, good sushi, service ok. Not something I’m excited about setting up again. I’d probably look around before finding sushi again, especially knowing I could end up in the basement, cold.

    We have been to Sushi Sasa over 50 times already. It is a very good place to eat sushi. It it always fresh, It is not cheap, but cheap sushi is suspect! I definitely recommend going there! They have sushi as well as other nice foods to eat. I recommend this as a good place to go and enjoy good food and drinks!

    I had quite a bad experience on Valentine’s day. The service and all staff did not seem to understand the menu and after they had messed up my order, they did nothing to fix it. It would have been nice to comp something or send a new item. I am not pleased with my experience and will not be returning. The sushi did not have much flavor AND the price was not right for the quality.

    Definitely won’t be back. Took our server 15 minutes to even bring us water. Our sushi rolls were some of the worst I’ve had, especially at a restaurant with table cloths. The Rocky Mountain roll was terrible, the grocery store has better quality than that. Spicy edamame was pretty good but not worth the price point. Drinks were alright as well, everything was so behind that I got my second round of drinks when our meal was completely over. I asked my server that I just not have this drink since we were done and ready to leave but she brought it out anyway and told me they already made it and I was asked to pay for a martini in a rocks glass… I ordered it before our food even arrived. We made reservations a few weeks in advance and were sat in the very front table, it was uncomfortable, not the romantic experience we were hoping for. I asked to wait until a different table opened for the two of us, they said no. I was absolutely freezing the entire meal because the door was open and we were about 3 feet from that. Entire experience took almost two hours and that was with begging for help any time we even saw our server. With the amount that we spent on this meal, I expected at least standard service. This was awful.

    My wife and I have been dining at Sushi Sasa for the last 5 -6 years and unfortunately our experience last night was not the best. The food was satisfactory, but we have never felt so rushed by the service team the way we did last night. We were there for maybe an hour and the servers kept bugging us and wanting to clear our table so we could leave. Our reservation was at 7:30 so it wasn't too late. It was awkward and the commute ended up being longer than our meal. We love dining here but for whatever reason, last night's experience was not pleasant for my wife and I.

    We did not realize we had to request Omakase 24 hours in advance however our server created an omakase (ish) experience for us by selecting the best menu items for us. We did not have to make a single decision and it was all delicious! Highly reccomend.

    My girlfriend and I were able to walk in on a Friday and get seated right away! We ordered the eggplant buns and miso soup to start with the elderflower martini and all were amazing!! Our sushi was very creative and the dessert was out of this world and everything came fast and wasn’t overpriced.

    The restaurant was very busy and our server spent more time serving the people at the bar/counter than the patrons seated at the table. He did comp a cocktail and Sushi that arrived so late. He did not need to comp one of the sushi orders but I think he realized how long we sat without a check in and we had to flag someone down 4 times to get service. Food was good but it seemed they needed more wait staff.

    They gave us a basement table in an area that was first come first serve. Felt a bit slighted. Would have hoped to sit upstairs in the main dining room since it was just 2 of us and we made the reservation months in advance.

    Absolutely incredible sushi, arguably the best I've ever had. The fatty tuna, bot seared and raw just melts. The Pink Lady is so unique and perfect and the volcano appetizer was rich beyond words. The food and service was all simply perfect.

    Sushi Sasa is one of our favorite places. However, the Diablo Roll, that is one of the best, really feels like it lost some of its flavor. It was kind of bland, and since it is supposed to be spicy and full of flavor, it fell short unfortunately.

    Noted on my reservation and to the hostess this was a special occasion. Promptly were seated in a room adjacent to the main dining room (which was nice) that felt like a banquet room. Then two families with small children were seated at banquette - and the noise began. I asked for another table and was accommodated after some needless waste of time only to move into a serving section where the kid (and he was a kid) was basically on his first day on the job. When I asked if the Sancerre was available, he looked at me incomprehensibly. Had no idea of the wine NOR how to open it ... the cork broke and rather than offering a new bottle, he sought out a manager to try to rescue the cork from the bottle. That's unacceptable. The rest of the meal fell apart after that with ill timed check ins and no one offering the graciousness to serve our wine. Really disappointed after all the favorable reviews I've read and would hesitate to pay for a "fine" dining sushi experience given the absolutely disastrous service.
