The servers in this place are just amazing. They are polite and friendly. They always check on us if we want anything else. Great place for a big group of people.
Ive come here on several occasions and i have yet to be dissatisfied with the service, quality, and general ambiance. The seafood is superb and the consistent freshness is one to be curious about, almost unreal for a land-locked state, ha!
Aside from the food, the sake selection is great and for someone thats not that educated, the service was super smart and helpful with picking a bottle in line with my taste.
~Best Sushi in Denver~ – I have been going to Sushi Den since it opened. Never had a bad meal here. Yes, it is expensive but it is the freshest, most creative sushi I have ever had. I've tried other sushi restaurants and they just don't measure up to Sushi Den. I'll say to myself...never again back to Sushi Den. Toshi must be doing something right with the three restaurants he owns right there on Pearl Street! The Miso Cod is awesome...pretty much anythign Miso is awesome though. Miso Toro (YUM) I love to start off with a House Salad with the tofu dressing. Houseroll is a favorite and I dip it into the tofu dressing. Some favs are: green mussels, seared tuna, shrimp boat /with quail egg on top (only a few of the chefs make this one!), rainbow roll, fresh water eel and the list could go on and on... Sit at the sushi bar for some entertainment!
Great Sushi – Drinks and sushi are good. Meet your pals there
Best sushi in Denver – I love Sushi Den! The food is great, the mango martini is delicious and the atmosphere is always fun.
Incredibly Average – Other than the swanky decor the Sushi Den is an incredibly average sushi restaurant. After giving this highly over rated sushi destination a few tries nothing about the food stands out. Although everything we have eaten there has been ‘good’ & fresh, it is consistently average. Nothing about the food warrants the price range on the menu, with a little effort you can find far better sushi in Denver
Response to "Horrifying Service" critic – If you are going to criticize the service at one of the top sushi restaurants in the country, you might want to tell us why you are making this claim. Otherwise, without any example of your experience, it makes you appear like you have some sort of gripe against the business. There is a reason why you have to wait for a table at Sushi Den and Izakaya Den - they are popular due to the quality of food and service. I have lived in the neighborhood for 13 years. I have never been dissatisfied with Sushi Den or their newer restaurant, Izayaka.
good sushi, atmosphere, high prices – I feel that The Sushi Den has fallen prey to the temptation to raise prices while lowering the size of their portions (or have the customers fallen prey)? I used to love "the den" but have been there two times recently and have been very disappointed. The quality is still okay but the portions have been reduced while the prices have continued to rise. I gave it a second chance after my first experience just to give them another shot as it used to be one of my favorite sushi joints. In my opinion they are taking advantage of their reputation as "the place to be seen" and the loyal customers are the losers. If you want to be seen or make an impression on a date it's the place to go but I feel there are better places for the sushi. I lived in Japan for 4 years and know my sushi. My choice for the best sushi is Sushi Ukoro in Golden on Colfax. I actually had a friend recently tell me she didn't like how BIG the portions were. Too hard to bite...WHAT? :-) They also do a fantastic job dressing the rolls with very interesting ingredients. Their other Japanese selections are fantastic also.
Clean & Fresh – Quite simply the very best Japanese food in Denver. Second place is not even close.
