Formerly from New York City, my expectation of a great sushi dining experience in Denver with tempered with low expectations. Imagine my surprise to find this incredible gem. Fresh fish flown in daily, service is outstanding, and the atmosphere wonderful. Do not miss a visit to Sushi Den.

This is the best sushi I have had in this country. Better than Nobu and better than Matsuhisa. So fresh, with ever changing specials. Love the jalapeño yellowtail, crunchy spicy tuna, the aburi, and anything on the special list. The cocktails are excellent and the desserts are equally as fresh and tasty. The servers are super knowledgeable, so ask their... More

In this land-locked state, truly the best sushi we have enjoyed anywhere in the States, New York and San Francisco included. Yellow tail lightly braised and served on the bone will long be remembered. Fast, fun, surprisingly affordable.

I went to Sushi Den last night with a large group and EVERY single person at the table was delighted with the quality of the food. The menu is exceptional, with options for those who aren't big fans of raw meat. I am, but I still decided to start with the Diver Scallops appetizer and it was fantastic!. Served on... More

We had quite a variety of things for lunch and everything was delicious. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a sushi restaurant with great food, modern decor and a very nice ambience. Service was also very good

We headed to Sushi Den having consulted the TripAdvisor ratings. We were somewhat wary given the comments over long wait times to be seated and no reservations being taken. No reason to worry. The hostess indicated a 30-40 minute wait and indeed there were a couple of dozen people waiting at the entrance. We went to the bar for a... More

Being a yearly tradition, going into its 4 th year, the sushi was as always superb. Still the best I ever had. The only thing that diminished the experience unexpectely this year was the waiter. He made some elementary mistakes throughout the evening, which really offset the perfection of the food. Norhing that can not be fixed with a little... More

We've never been to Japan, but The Sushi Den is, hands down, the best sushi we've ever had, period! Having lived on the beach and being ravenous sushi eaters, we've always been skeptical about sushi that requires shipping. However, this place does it right! The owner's family lives in Japan and overnights fish a few days each week that you... More

This is probably one of the best Japanese restaurants outside of Japan. Friend of mine, Japanese, he said definitely this is the best one, while he travels a lot. The fish is always fresh, the service is excellent, the presentation is outstanding as well. This is a pretty crowded place, although you feel pretty comfortable. Please note they don't accept...

Went here to celebrate the birth of our grandson. The sushi was outstanding, well prepared, and plentiful. The service was also outstanding. The guys preparing the sushi were not redheaded guys with beards and ponytails, but the real deal. I don't review with "excellent" often, but would go here again. Only downside is it's expensive. Four of us, with drinks... More
