Overall, it was a good experience and my girlfriend and I will be back for more outstanding sushi.

We went on Valentine's day and they clearly overbooked their reservations. I might be crazy, but my expectation is that when I make a reservation for a table for a specific time that we won't have to wait 30 minutes for a table. This was my first time there, so it's very possible this was just a valentines day anomaly.

The kitchen was also backed up, so it took a while for food too. The traditional sake was terrific and they comped us a bottle to make up for our wait on food. We ordered 2 specialty roles and a standard role and LOVED IT. The sake and food definitely made up for the inconveniences.

Recommendation: Definitely give it a try for yourself. You might have better luck with the wait time on a less busy evening. Great for a date and if you're in the mood for sushi!!

We went for Valentine's Day and we're seated a little after our reservation with slow food delivery...but based on the day and the crowd it was understandable! Great service, great food, great ambiance. Would definitely come again!

Amazing amazing amazing food. Definitely recommend the surf and turf. It took a little while to be seen by our server but once he came over, the service was good and the food came out pretty quickly - and it was worth the wait! So yummy... I could've had 5 more rolls. Great date spot :)

Our experience was mediocre. Our server did not do a very good job. She didn't ask us if we wanted anything to drink. She brought our water out late. She forgot our soup. When were we're leaving four servers were just hanging out at the front door blocking the door and did not move over for us to exit the restaurant.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on November 4, 2017

I've been to this restaurant a few times, each was generally a good experience. The food is excellent and I particularly love their expansive sake menu. My waitress was able to make a recommendation based on my likes and dislikes. The service was ok, but could be improved. My wife and I showed up with our 2 year old and had to ask for a child's seat. This should be obvious to offer, so I was slightly annoyed we had to ask. The other mark on the service was that after we had ordered, a couple was seated next to our table and was offered specials, which we were never even offered. Just a few tweaks to the service and attention to detail would make this a great experience.

Honestly, this is the best sushi spot I have found in Denver. The fish is always fresh, the rolls are creative, and the service is exceptional. In my opinion, the chefs at Sushi Hai do an impeccable job honoring the tradition of sushi as an art form. From presentation to flavor, every dish is beautifully and thoughtfully prepared.

I have come back numerous times and have been equally impressed with each visit. Needless to say, I'll certainly be dining here again.

It was our first time visiting Sushi Hai and our lunch was very good and we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience, thanks in large measure to Sabrina, our server who was knowledgeable, attentive and very pleasant. Our nigiri was uniformly tasty and the Sushi HaiLander roll was both unique and especially delicious. Would recommend highly to friends........

Even though I made a reservation they did not have a table for us so they stuck us in the basement by ourselves in the "overflow"section. Not exactly the ambiance we were looking for daughters 18th birthday party. Awkward....

Our visit started off on the wrong foot. We arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation set for 5pm. In the past, we have always been seated on the upper level and always seem to get the 2-top located next to the window. It was open and I asked for it but we were told by the hostess that "lunch just ended" and that servers were not yet on the clock. Our only option was the lower level. We were seated and waited approx 20 minutes to receive our first cocktail. The server blamed it on the bartender who was having issues with his girlfriend. A server should never share info such as this. Customers do not want to hear that. Food service was slow and was brought to our table by one of the chefs. Our server actually seemed to be a bit "loaded". Not sure, but she was off and her eyes showed it. This visit was lousy when it came to the personnel. The food was good.

UPDATE
As of today, 10/17/17, I have not been contacted by the manager to discuss. This is very unfortunate.

Even though we've known of SH for years, this was our first visit- first time unagi also. Excellent gyoza- I'm used to the vinegar sauce, but their sweet chili sauce was a nice change. Nice setting, very good food and service. Definitely worth a return, will try the sake flight next time.
