Regardless of how out of touch you are with society, step into Japon and you will immediately feel hip and contemporary. With its intimate and contemporary setting, this is a great restaurant for dates, special occasions and power lunches. For a true sense of style opt for the Queen Elizabeth, featuring champagne, seaweed salad, beef teriyaki, lobster tempura, salmon sashimi and soft shell crab. The menu even offers vegetarian sushi dinners. It also has a daily happy hour sushi special.
I had the worst experience ever at Japon. I have been there at least a dozen times, and my experience on 3/30/2012, was by most the worst DINING experience of my ENTIRE LIFE. The sushi bar looked disgusting, and I have pictures to prove it, the service was deplorable, and the host was rude. I asked to speak with a manager, but was told one was not available.
After ten yrs of going to Japon won't be back after tonight! Great sushi, but the service was horrible! Upon arrival waited in lobby for five plus minutes without a greeting or anyone to seat us. Once seated waited a very longtime before the only waitress in the entire place came and took our drink order. We sat at the sushi bar this evening because we always like bar and it was nit busy this eve. Sushi chief was good but somewhat slow. After dinner we ordered fried green tea ice cream and wanted coffee (stupid and cheap), when I said something about never having coffee at Japon she told me to go next door to bakery Devils Food. Which I would have but at 9 pm they are closed. So waited fifteen minutes for ice cream and after waiting all evening on slow this and that got up and went to main lobby desk to pay. I asked to speak to a manager and the wimpy kid I was speaking with said I am the manager. I told him about slow service one waitress fir entire place was a joke along with never having the option if coffee. He then takes our credit card for payment and went mia for ten min. When he returned with reciept he handed me a coupon for 15% off my next visit. I told him that I did not want it because I will never be back! If you Japon are so economically bad off that you can not staff Japon with enough wait and service staff to actually service your clients like they should be then CLOSE!!!
People always rant and rave about Sushi Den, but who wants to wait 3 hours to be seated?!!
For years I have been a raving fan of Japon, not only because the sushi is much better, but because it doesn't have the same pretentious snobby crowd that goes to the Den.
I left to Florida for five years and came back this year and was very impressed with how Japon remodeled the interior. LOVE IT!
I had a friend from Wash DC visit and we went to both the den and Japon. He hated the Den and loved Japon because the sushi was much more flavorful, the pieces were bigger, and the service was genuine, on time, and as always, outstanding.
I always order sushi when I go here. It has never faltered in quality to me. After trying most of the well-known sushi restaurants in Denver, I have always found the fish to be extremely fresh and highly recommend Japon to my friends. The unagi, the saba and the seared tuna remain my favorites. They also have a good assortment of rolls (available with nori or soy paper) and vegetarian options. If you go before 6:00 PM, they have a Happy Hour where some sushi and drinks are reduced in price. If you go after 6:00 PM, however, they serve an absolutely delicious cucumber salad before your sushi.
The service, I have found, is always friendly but is slow. I'm referring to the servers here, not to the men making the sushi behind the counter. There's usually not a lot of servers running around so perhaps they are somewhat overextended. But, you're there to have a meal so it's not a lot of trouble to wait a bit. If it is, order take out.
The location is cozy and close to Wash park, with a cool modern design like the circulating water wall behind the sushi bar. However, this location can make it somewhat difficult to find parking. The first time I went, I had to park on a residential side street. There is free valet parking available on the weekends (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) if you'd like to go that route too.
