Enjoyed everything we ate at this trendy, fun place filled with all ages. It is a big restaurant and not sure where the ideal spot to eat is. There's a cool bar area and a large back room. It can be noisy in this back room.

Fresh, tasty, and major variety of sushi. I have been here about 25 times now over the past 5 years and definitely call this my go-to sushi place in Denver. You will not be disappointed!

If there is a special occasion this is a go to. Sitting at the sushi bar will delight you with new fresh fish that are always interesting and/or delightful. I LOVE the lobster ramen!

As good as the Den is this is maybe literally a step. World class sushi and one of my all time favorite restaurants in the world.

A vast menu of delights awaits you at Izakaya. The wait staff are superb and make spot on recommendations that will enhance your dining experience so ask them! Pages and pages of unique combinations and of course, old favorites are also there. Happy hour is the best deal around and varies by time of year and day of the week... More

Went to a business dinner here on the suggestion of a colleague who lived nearby. Immediately noticed the decor. It's a very cool modern Asian look. Hostess and wait staff were excellent. The sushi was not the best I ever had (that was Sasabune HI) but it was very, very good, and quite creative. My only real complaint was that... More

The fact that our Mint.com budget has a separate breakout for Izakaya Den says something. We are there almost every Friday. Yes it's expensive but so worth it! We sit upstairs at the bar and enjoy the summers up there even more. Tonight the rooftop and all the walls were totally open. Amazing! The bartender remembers our order from week... More

This is the best sushi restaurant we have ever been to, including in Japan. Izakaya and Sushi Den share the same kitchen and Sushi Den is consistently ranked as one of the best sushi restaurants in the US. We prefer Izakaya because the atmosphere is a little more intimate. The second floor roof can be rolled back on nice evenings... More
