We went for dinner here whilst in Monterey and the food was great. The waiter took his time to explain the various option's to us and helped guide us with our choices. So good food, good service, and reasonably priced, what's not to like?

The Sapporo restaurant in Monterey is undoubtably one of the best restaurants we have visited in a long time. Chose to have your food cooked on the grill in front of you and your own private chef / entertainer will cook your food, juggle knives and keep you amused. Great food with a choice of steaks and seafood. Included in... More

My husband and I stumbled onto this restaurant while walking around Fisherman's Wharf. From its second floor position, it is a great place to view yhe boats in the marina. The menu has a good variety of sushi, which seemed to be popular. My husband and I ordered steak, excellently prepared, tender, and flavorful. Our wait person was helpful and... More

We had a recommendation from our son and daughter-in-law to try Sapporo. We even had heard ahead of time about the jalapeno bomb. We enjoyed that and a Buffalo roll as well as a little wine. The view is superb, the staff was very friendly and we couldn't have had a more wonderful time after our whale watching trip.

The food is almost too pretty to eat. Everything tasted authentically Japanese, the miso soup & pickled veggies added to the enjoyment of my dragon roll. Service was excellent, I had a late lunch & the place was quiet. The second time I visited, there was a party going on in the other room where there's a grill on the... More

Was easy to get a table in Monterey car week. Food is fine, sushi is actually better than the grill in my opinion. Good location and friendly staff, recommend for a quick, easy meal.

Right on the water, this restaurant does not disappoint! The sushi is fresh and delicious as were the non-sushi appetizers. We ordered edamame, gyoza, bacon wrapped shrimp in addition to sushi. Everything was excellent! And our server was awesome! Ask for a table by the window-the view is spectacular! You can't go wrong here.

Wait staff so very helpful. Knew their stuff, and the food was very good, besides having a beautiful view of the Bay. We hated to leave.

Loved the sushi here - the waiter went out of his way to make my kids feel welcome and to prepare the food the way they wanted (picky kids!). The view is wonderful and adds to the experience.

I haven't had the sushi side of the restaurant but love the grill side where they cook right in front of you. Lunch is still pricey but so much food is given and the view is incredible. Staff is funny, friendly and food is good. You will see why restaurant food tastes good - oil, butter and lots of seasoning!... More
