    I love Hapa! Have been going for several years and it very rarely disappoints! My last meal was amazing. Service is always on point as their staff is very attentive and friendly, food is fresh and continues to get better, music provides the perfect ambiance. My only suggestion would be to play more of a variety on the tvs around the front room. The night we went in it was just 4 diff anime shows so maybe music videos and other shows too? Will def be back!

    Rather quiet, we were the only people in the dining room, but it was midweek and late. Service was attentive and our wait staff took the time to explain all the dishes. Food was creative and delicious. Well priced small plates and unique cocktails. This is now our neibourhood favourite for Japanese fusion food.

    We LOVE Hapa Izakaya! It is one of our favourite restaurants in the city. We HIGHLY recommend it. A great place for for lunch or dinner with friends, family, date night or for a business meeting. The ambiance is terrific and we love the open concept kitchen. We have been there a number of times and each time the service and the quality of food has impressed us. The service is impeccable and the food is just amazing! Mmmm... we were just there yesterday and we could seriously go back again today! Lol!

    Honesty I expected to sample a Japanese food ( as it was said in Add), but it was more like Korean fusion food, which were not bad, but I was expecting something different

    Excellent service and great food, although they tended to rush us through our 10-course dinner, until we asked them to pace things a bit slower. Atmosphere was "okay", a bit of a sports bar in the front of the room, with loud music and 6 TV screens. One issue we felt uncomfortable with was the fact the young ladies serving us had very long hair, which should have been tied back, or up, and would have looked much neater.

    I am totally dating myself here but I have to tell you I wish I had known that this place was as loud as I was on the reviews. My boyfriend and I were literally yelling just to be heard. While my experience of the service was excellent, I did hear from others that typically the service is poor here. As for the food – I will admit that the fish was very fresh and the flavours were well done. But I was clearly playing for the privilege of being there as the portions were small, even for tapas. Had to go eat somewhere else afterwards. I always hate doing that.

    Super Bowl was on at least 6 screens and was so loud we couldn't here each other talk. Made reservations but there was no table reserved for us we had to sit at the long table that seats 14 or so. Food was good but nearly as good as the Hapa on Vsncouver.

    Amazing service. My boyfriend and I made reservations for 6:30. We arrived to a very busy restaurant, the host apologized profusely, we would have to wait a few minutes for our table. He had is sit at the bar to wait and informed us our first drink was on the house. Would definitely go back for the service. The Karaage was really good and juicy. I loved the marcha crème brûlé. And their drink specials are really good.
