Description: The name Hapa is derived from the Hawaiian term that describes a harmonious blend of Asian and American cultures. Like our name, our food reflects this dynamic combination. The menu is based on traditional Japanese cooking fundamentals which are then amplified, muted, or mixed with influences from many different styles of cooking until they are something completely new: they're Hapa. We have stretched the boundaries of creativity to develop dishes that defy all the rules while holding true to our roots. We hope that you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

I go to this restaurant ALL THE TIME because I love it so much. The vast majority of their staff is simply wonderful, but of course there's always a bad apple here and there...you can't guarantee great service every time you go to a restaurant like this, but I can assure you that MOST of the wait staff and hostesses...

I went in with a group of about 10 of us. While we were still sitting down, our waitress showed up asking for drink orders. We answered her as best we could with only 30 seconds to look at the menu. Once she got to the 4th person who ordered a water and then asked about a drink, she looked... More

Foreplay, Climax, Booty Call - just a few of the freshest rolls at this hip establishment on the famed Pearl Street. Always hopping, service is quick and excellent.

Right on Pearl Street Mall you'll find this gem. Great service and better food. Sushi is fresh and with options like "multiple orgasm" rolls you can't go wrong. It's not traditional sushi but there are more traditional options as well. We were a large group and sat in 2 connected booths. The staff was great and patient for such a... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch, and the service was very fast and friendly. Carly was an excellent server, she provided some good recommendations. I ordered the avocado roll, foreplay roll and the xxx roll. The sushi was great although I did not enjoy the xxx roll to much because of the oil. What made this such a excellent experience... More

With all the excellent reviews, I was very disappointed. The hostess kept me, and the family behind me, waiting for an extraordinary amount of time. So long in fact, that the sushi chef kept calling for her. She finally came and seated me next to a very drafty door on a cold day, even though the restaurant was mostly empty.... More

Hapa gave us free appetizers because they were running late and couldn't seat us promptly at the time we had reserved. We appreciated this courtesy. Food was all excellent and the atmosphere lively.

Right in the heart of Pearl Street lives a happy little sushi bar named Hapa. Everything about my recent meal there was a delight. The weather was perfection and I had been just reunited with my sweet daughter after spending months apart. The setup to a perfect experience was already in place! We were late to happy hour, but there... More

They have a better selection than what one might think of a Sushi House. They are NOT really a sushi house since they have many great choices of fusion entrees. Fresh interesting and different menu items.

One of Boulder's best sushi restaurants and in a great location on the Pearl Street Mall - nice outside dining when weather permits... Happy hour last until 5:30 which is great if you need to eat early - some rolls are 2 for 1 along with some appetizers but not the complete menu... Sushi and service are always great, even... More
