Oceanaire may be the modern embodiment of a system that facilitates swift and stunning deliveries of fish from all corners of the globe to little ol' Denver, but Sushi Den blazed the trail that others would follow. For two decades, Sushi Den has labored toward perfecting a supply line whereby fish that were swimming yesterday could tonight land on the plates of picky eaters in this town. Through contacts in the fish markets of Japan and lots of big FedEx bills, Sushi Den manages to get not only some of the best, freshest fish in Denver, but in the whole of the United States. And while for most people the difference between a piece of baby bluefin that's been out of the water 36 hours and one that's been dead three days might not seem like a big deal, for real sashimi fans, it's huge. And Sushi Den is the place they go for the freshest, most delicately handled fish in the city.

I largely agree with the first poster. While Sushi Den consistently has the best quality fish, at least in this region, there's an unfortunate general hasty and sloppiness to the preparation of sushi and maki. It simply would not pass muster in Japan to serve sushi in this manner, or rice as dense, sweet and lacking in seasoning. Sashimi at Sushi Den is a good call, to avoid the rice which is sub par. In Japan, sushi rice quality and seasoning is on par with the fish. In defense of the chefs, who are no doubt told the typical patron won't know the difference anyway, like those who rudely disassemble sushi and dunk it in insane amounts of wasabi bombed soy sauce.

People of Denver, you NEVER put wasabi into soy sauce. Never add wasabi to sushi which should already have it based on chefs preference for the fish chosen. And don't dunk it into the soy sauce rice first leaving large piles of saturated rice in the dish. It's extremely rude, equivalent to children playing with their food.

Last night I had the distinct displeasure of eating at Sushi Den.

The sushi was good and the waitress nice, but the service was completely discombobulated and stupid. The waitress brought our first entree out before the appetizer, and when I asked why, offered to take the entree back to the kitchen until the appetizer arrived. "Yes, I would love my raw fish to sit on the counter until the appetizer arrives and we get the opportunity to eat it." Yikes. Then, in an effort to appease my dissatisfaction, she came to the table and said our second entree was ready but she would hold it until we finished the appetizer and the first entree which was still sitting on the postage stamp size table. Just what I wanted to hear. I was not pleased. In an effort to appease my dissatisfaction, she kept coming to the table every three minutes to see if everything was better. I mean, she was trying hard, but the last thing I wanted was to have the waitress interrupt my friend's birthday dinner in an effort to get concern take the place of good service. At the prices charged, I expect service that makes the dining experience immensely pleasurable. It was wildly apparent that speed, getting the food on the table and the customers out the door in the least amount of time possible, was more important than the pleasure of the guests.

A truly unpleasant experience.
