So much fun!! I had never been to a hibachi / Teppanyaki kind of place before. I had wanted to go to another place but prices were too high for my budget taste. I had found out about this place and was surprised to see how inexpensive it was. I was scared because they say you get what you pay... More

Overlooking the harbor, it offers great views, but that only adds to the experience as the food is outstanding. Both sushi bar and dining as well as the always fun tepanaki cooking tables in the back. You can't go wrong at Sapporo.

Fun way to spend a great New Year's Eve dinner. Waiters and chefs are awesome and very helpful. Good entertainment factor by the chef who cooks meals on the grill in front of you. Everything was fresh and prepared nicely as requested. A lot of food included in the meal, with soup, salad, vegetables and rice (fried rice slightly extra... More

Quite big portions to be honest, therefore a little bit overpriced... Great view, service was great also, a nice place in general for some sushi and steak in Monterey...

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
