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.

    The food & cocktails were wonderful. The ambience was quiet but not too quiet; it was perfect for hearing each other at our table. Our server seemed a little quiet and off that night and came back to ask if “we forgot about our check because it’s happened to me before” which I found to be an odd comment so we paid and then finished our conversation. Perhaps the shift was over, but I’d rather the server just say “my shift is over do you mind if I settle that up for you?” Despite the off service night, We would go back and try it again. Everyone has an off day.

    It was freezing in the restaurant we kept our coats on.that’s not enjoyable. Food was just ok, not worth the ridiculous price. We get better sushi near us that we much prefer and less expensive. Disappointed

    We arrived directly on time for our 7:45 PM dinner reservation. After waiting in the lobby for about 3 to 5 minutes we were seated in the downstairs dining room, which had a nice low light ambience. We looked over the drink menu and ordered our cocktails which took 15 minutes to receive first drinks. We ordered the Japanese old fashion, which was disappointing to say the least. The espresso martini was below average. We ordered the sashimi specialty plate appetizers and Shishido peppers. These items took over 30 minutes to arrive at our table. We struggled to get our servers attention to order a second round of drinks so much so that we had to flag down a different server in order to receive our second round of drinks. After another 30 minutes our sushi order finally arrived. We ordered a plethora of nigiri and six specialty rolls. They were out of a few cuts of fish specifically the young yellowtail that we were all looking forward too, Quality of the sushi rolls was good, but not great. Two of the rolls I would categorize is excellent. At the end of our dinner, our waitress brought us the bill and informed us that 21% gratuity had been added to our bill automatically for the service staff. The entire dinner, our server conducted herself as though her poor service had no consequences. Once we saw the bill it was clear that was because she was going to rely on the automatic gratuity added to the bill. I had been to this establishment, many years prior and regarded as arguably the best sushi in all of Denver. This dinner was a special event with friends coming into town. After leaving the restaurant at the end of the night I remember feeling embarrassed that I had brought my friends to this restaurant.

    Very disappointing experience tonight. I had a reservation at 7pm, however, my group & I were not sat until after 8pm. After finally being sat, a server did not come to our table for 15 minutes. Once we were able to order it took over an hour for our dishes to come out, 3 of which were incorrect. Once we received the bill we were charged for 2 items that we didn’t order. The service was horrible and the food was mediocre at best. After expressing concerns to our server, no apologies or accommodations were given. First and last time coming to this establishment.

    The service could have been better. The server assistant picked up the plates which was great but we sat there for quite a long time without the server checking up on us. We were ready to pay. The restaurant was really loud. I asked for a good table. We were in the main room with people constantly walking by. I had to lean into my guests to hear them much of the time. I would recommend depending on what kind of ambiance they would like.

    Sushi Sasa is my favorite sushi restaurant. It’s great about gluten free options and they’re flexible about tweaking rolls to make them GF. Everything is always fresh. Much better than the competition.

    Enjoyed a lovely and extended meal for two at the sushi bar, on an understandably slow evening before Thanksgiving. We appreciated not being hurried, attentive service, a green tea IPA from Kyoto, and delicious sushi as usual. Definitely will be back, many thanks.

    Pros: polite, welcoming staff. Fish tasted good. Cons: mushy sushi roll rice. Bland basic rolls with no artistic or unique concepts, like lots of fried things and cream cheese (The nigiri & sashimi were better). Overpriced for the quality. Had to ask for soy sauce. Ordered the Sasa trio and nori chips were terrible. Stuck to your teeth and unenjoyable to eat. Sushi rollers weren't wearing hats.

    It took 20 minutes for our waitress to greet us and she was relatively rude. Didn’t apologize for the wait, tell us her name, or try to establish a good vibe at all. She walked away and we had to remind her that we were ready to order given that we’d been sitting there a while. The food runner was at least pretty nice, and we didn’t see our waitress again until it was time to leave. She asked how we were doing while there was nothing on the table as it had already been bussed. We got a dessert and a dinner drink and the drink came about 5 minutes after we’d already finished the dessert. The manager comped the dinner drink and apologized, but it was a little late at that point. We hadn’t even said anything to the server about the service, so I suppose she just knew that the service had been sub par. The restaurant was crowded, so we understand, but a simple greeting alerting to us to that at the beginning would have helped. We likely won’t return.

    Based on the reviews I really expected to love this place. Unfortunately it just wasn’t worth the time, money, or calories (even though we boxed up the majority of our sushi because it just wasn’t worth eating). The pork buns are flavorless; the meat is basically just lightly seasoned and put in the bun with a cucumber. Super bland. The specialty old fashion is too sweet. The dynamite seafood trio appetizer is a 3/10. The sushi is truly sub par and just not worth it. Only great thing is free attached parking.
