We stopped in without a reservation on a Friday evening (would suggest making one) and they seated us at the bar. Even though we waited a while for the food, it was well worth the wait, fresh and well made rolls. Would definitely return!

Tiny place, lots of neighborhood people come get takeout. Counter with about 8 seats. Tables seat about 20 people. So make a reservation. The sushi is fantastic. Silky, fresh and tender. Made me so happy eating here. Large sake selection. Be sure to peruse the specials board on the wall. Lots of neat additions there. Excellent friendly service.

my husband and I relocated to Colorado a few years ago and whenever we travel to areas with access to good seafood, we make every effort to find sushi. We came across Otoro by accident on a recent visit and enjoyed it so much we went back a second time. The owner, jimmy, is a gracious gentleman. The food was amazing. Pork belly appetizer melts in the mouth. The sushi was clean and so flavorful. One of our top sushi restaurants. Make the choice to go and experience what sushi should taste like.

Incredible! Off the chart! We ate practically everything on the chalkboard and then circled back on several because we couldn't believe how stupidly fresh and good everything was. The sake flights were a great way to sample the deeelicious selection and preview the large bottles. This evening smashed pretty much every
sashimi bite we've gobbled this year. Great service! Amazing amazing fresh fish and supa dupa Sake.

I stayed at Sleep Over Sauce hotel for two nights. This restaurant is just round the corner from the hotel and I had dinner there twice. The first time, i had a tempura udon, salmon sushi and chawamushi. The second time was just all sushi. Overall I think the sushi quality is very good but their udon is only average and the chawamushi is the worst.

Worthwhile to go for the sushi but make sure you make a reservation if you intend to go for dinner on Fri or Sat. Tough finding seats otherwise.
