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

They cook the food right in front of you. The cook adds a bit of humor and games to make the whole eating experience fun. The food was plentiful and nice. This restaurant should be one of Monterrey attractions. The food is not cheap so I am not sure why some folks said it was cheap. We were a party... More

A great location overlooking the marina, good food and plenty of it (maybe a bit too much of it). Overall lunch experience was a positive one and if I'm in the area again I'd be happy to eat there
