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 you will find our menu innovative, uninhibited, and distinctly fun! Incomplete parties will not be sat until complete.

Go at happy hour, the prices are much more reasonable. It gets crowded quickly. The decor is contemporary, and service is efficient if not curt. It's the only place where there are 3 hostesses standing near the entrance looking a little bored. There is outdoor seating, but choose carefully depending on time of year. Sushi is done well, not too... More

Perfect location to eat outside on a pleasant day. Although I let the server know I had a gluten intolerance, I received the wrong food from a different person. The primary server came by shortly after the food was placed on the table and took it away. The manager then came by, apologized and did not charge for my entree.... More

This is a great sushi restaurant with interesting appetizers and an excellent, inexpensive happy hour. The sushi is good, though the crab is imitation. The atmosphere is fun and its even kid friendly with origami activities for the whole family at the table. Cocktails are great.

The "music" was loud and pounding. The food was average at best. The waiter offered us a dessert menu when we were right in the middle of dinner.

A friend and I had some time to kill before a flight home so we happened upon this spot. We were very lucky because this was a great find. Of course we had a roll and it was very good!! I had a bowl and it was very tasty also. My friend had a salad and she enjoyed it also.... More

Went for dinner at Hapa and had a great time. They had a great selection of sushi and everything was delicious. We ordered about 6 different types and they were brought out on one boat - great presentation. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. One of our friends ordered the saki which came in a little wooden box and... More
