Very funny

Very funny dinner, perfect for my daughter to celebrate her birthday. They are good to celebrate with song, drum and candles. Kids have a lot of fun!

We stopped here en route to Carmel for lunch and weren't disappointed. The decor of the restaurant is a bit old and dated but the food is excellent and MASSIVE portions, so come with an appetite. The prices of the food is great too.

This place just wasn't that Great for 200.00 I could of found better. Chicken was dry and gave me a bad stomach ache. Entire family agreed. So tried it didn't like it and will never go back when I'm in the area.

Sapporo's is our family's favorite destination for birthday parties! My 9 year olds love watching the cook prepare the grill, light an onion on fire, toss shrimp and chicken bits through the air into open mouths of the diners! My kids have already booked their birthdays for next year at Sapporo's!

From reading the other reviews and based on my own experience, I would say the service will depend on how busy the restaurant is. We came in for dinner and the place was packed. Several severs walked right in front of us and I actually had to ask someone if we could get seated twice. The view is spectacular if... More

We have been in California for 2 1/2 weeks and have to say this was one of the 2nd best meals we've had. Service was prompt and our server was very attentive. The view was beautiful of the bay. Ordered the, "Best of the best" sushi roll and we could have made a whole meal on this. Ordered the Teryaki... More

The food is fresh and really made the real Japanese way to make Sushi and all. Good selection of sashimi sushi specialties and drinks The lack of friendliness is a big turn off, some kids were denied kids menus when they were younger than other siblings all in all great food bad service a turn off

Perhaps the best chicken katsu curry I have ever had (and I have eaten many)! Really friendly service and good selection of drinks

We tried to get some nice sushi unagi and other items we usually pick at the oldest and best sushi place in Monterey (Sakura) who also caters to Pebble Beach. That place should be rated as American Hamburger and Pizza Sushi.
