good food, good views, great service

I've been here many times over the years with my family who live in Monterey. Sushi is good but not awesome. The location and service has always been fantastic. Never tried the teppanyaki...

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.

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.
