What Insiders Are Saying
Sushi Den serves some of the best raw fish in Denver.
Always a “go to” when in Denver and never disappoints. Items off the chefs menu were the highlights.
Superior. Every thing is done well in a James Beard award winning restaurant kind of way.
Food was decent, service mediocre. Not really an authentic Japanese taste, but if you like American Japanese food and American sushi, this will be a good place for you (I travel to Japan several times a year). Service was mediocre at best, even though the server said it was a "typical" Saturday night and was used to this level of busy. In my opinion, this restaurant is highly overrated. There are better places for sushi in Denver.
It’s the best sushi and Japanese restaurant in entire country. I have been going there for almost 30 years.
Amazing sake and sushi date night! The seared scallops were delicious and the firecracker roll was so good with the fresh jalapeño on top. The Den never disappoints and is still my favorite sushi restaurant in Denver!
Second time here, Food was amazing, service on point... well worth the price.
We loved everything we tried:
New salmon roll
Kobe beef roll
Had a friend with a food allergy and they were happy to accommodate. Just a great dinner
Incredible sushi. One of the best I’ve been to in the country. Thank you for the fresh cuts and the great service!
Our lunch at Sushi Den was slightly above average. It was loud and cramped inside the restaurant. The food was very good, but the service was scattered and we never received all the sushi we ordered. It's also disappointing that the restaurant chose not to provide any OpenTable points for the reservation.
Sushi Den is consistently one of my favorite SUSHI restaurants in Colorado. Awesome fish done in a traditional way with a decent selection of saki. Best banana cream pie I've ever had.
We always enjoy the Sushi Den. The valet parking attendants are friendly and helpful, the food is fantastic, and the wait staff is well trained and usually pretty good at handling the noise and confusion. Downside: although this place has many tables, it is so popular that unless you are in line when the doors open you will wait a long time for a table. Once seated customers want to stay and stay. No good place to wait either. Still, dining here is a fabulous experience.
Roscoe is awesome!
The food and the service were excellent. The sushi was delicious and definitely far above average for Denver
Sushi Den is never a disappointment. The food is good, they have a wide range of drinks and the service is usually very professional, though not overly friendly. The garlic calamari is especially good!
Very poor service this last trip which was super disappointing. Was for a bday and only after they took my cake to the back did they inform me of the cutting fee. Cake took almost 20mjn after the meal to arrive and find out and they threw away the boxes I brought so we had to wait even longer for a alternative box. We didn’t even cut the cake or eat it since it took so long yet they still charged me $7.50...for what idk.
Food was good as expected. Service was not good at all. Clearly the server didn’t care if we were there or not. Prob won’t take my family again based on such horrible service
Phillipe was the best! We celebrated my Father in Laws Birthday here and the entire experience was fantastic. The wine a Chenin Blanc from South Africa, the sake, the seared Sushi offerings, the rolls, beautiful fresh fish. A million thank yous Sushi Den!
We love Sushi Den and you can bring non-sushi eating folks with you- we have been here several times when we visit Denver-- worth seeking out. The sushi is fresh and inventive -- the cooked meals are wonderful as well-- Highly recommended
The settings are very nice and the food is delicious, though on the expensive side.
We had reservations for a birthday celebration for eleven people ranging from 9 months to 88 years old on a recent Sunday in the early evening. We appreciated the valet parking in arrival. Once seated, our waiter proved to be very knowledgeable & skilled, answering all our questions & making some very good suggestions. The Sushi & other food was delicious! We were allowed to bring in a bakery birthday cake which our waiter presented to the birthday guest lit with candles for singing. He then took it back to the kitchen & served each of us sliced cake. We had a festive, delicious, memorable birthday dinner party at Sushi Den in Denver and plan to return for other happy occasions.
Had a nice time at Sushi Den. The only complaint is that our table was WAY TOO SMALL. We requested another table that could properly accommodate our party of four, but the server plainly said "no" despite a larger table set for four near us being open. We simply had no room to dine comfortably. We asked the server to take the soy sauce container so we could have more space (that's how cramped we were!) but he said "no, that stays on the table". OKAY THEN.
Nice meal to share over business.
We had a reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival. The variety of sushi is great and the taste is amazing. Everything was so fresh and delicious.
Our table was not ready when promised. Then we were seated in a very noisy bar area. We were very disappointed because we had out of town guests with us. The food was delicious and our wait staff was very efficient but the whole experience was not up to what we have experienced at this restaurant in the past.
Would try again
Yum! Loved it! Can’t wait to go back! We had a pregnant server last night and she was super nice. The wagyu steak was incredible as well as the rolls!
For those that enjoy Sushi - there is only Sushi Den - you always have a wonderful meal!
The sushi is the best I’ve had. So good!!
RSVP table 2 weeks ahead. Check in on time but have to wait for 15 minutes to get the seats!
Sushi Den never disappoints. Fish is always fresh. Rocio, our server, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I can't wait to back again.
So fresh and delicious. Even beyond high expectations . Hope they never compromise quality.
One of my favorite restaurants in the United States. Whenever I’m in Denver or even just passing through on my way to the mountains, I always stop in for a meal. Love the calamari with mushrooms, but the snapper sushi was not up to par on my recent visit .
I haven’t come back to sushi den after a long time. I love how I got reservations and I got in right away when I’m arrived. But I was disappointing at I had my mom birthday and the servers didn’t bought any out, he forgot hot towel as he was offering at first, and forgot one of my order I don’t know it might from the kitchen.
Absolutely perfect in every way. Stellar service, amazing food, perfect setting. The very best!
Critically acclaimed by all who have had the opportunity to dine at Sushi Den. No better Sushi in the United States of America. Everything about Sushi Den is world class! All you have to do to order an outstanding meal is close your eyes and point at the menu. Waitstaff excellent at advising novice diners.
MY FAVORITE! Especially Carlos and Amie! Thank you for always being fabulous!
Best sushi in Denver and always pretty consistent.
The service was very rushed
