We had reservations for 6:30pm on a Saturday and were seated right away. Service was excellent. I loved the warm cloth they gave us to wash our hands when we sat down. We enjoyed two excellent appetizers: ama ebi, and fresh sashimi. We also ordered 2 combinations: steak with tempura and sushi with tempura. Both were delicious and came with... More

Mr. and Mrs. Lee always share their warm hospitality with families. Our sons adore this place! Terrific cirashi. Fresh and abundant.

From the Japanese staff. Authentic menu and quirky decor, you'll feel welcome in this unexpected gem of a restaurant. Combinations are a good value. Service great and efficient.

We get to Sagano fairly often and the sushi/sashimi and other dishes are always excellent. Everything is prepared with fresh ingredients. The sake choices are very good. My favorites are the Sushi Chef specials and the gyoza. Dinner for two runs $50-$80 with drinks.

Sushi as good as any I have ever had. Servers are very friendly but be prepared to wait a while. Probably took 35 min. And they aren't proactive about asking if you want another drink or the check. That being said, great sushi and a nice atmosphere.

The sushi is consistently very fresh, and they serve a variety of other Japanese dishes including tempura, bento boxes, and tokatsu (fried pork cutlet) which is my wife's favorite. Sushi Combo A is always my favorite, served with miso soup and a salad. The service can be a little slow at times, so don't be in a hurry when you... More

Sagano is a terrific find in the Barrington area. The lovely couple that owns the restaurant is always so kind and amiable. Food is delicious. If you want genuine Japanese cuisine, this is the place to go. The sushi is fresh, and I'm especially impressed by the sea urchins. The lobster dish is out of the world! It's so amazing... More

Mr. Lee has been providing fresh and speedy sushi for over 15 years in downtown Barrington. We love sitting at the sushi bar and watching his work...never seen a sushi chef prepare food so quickly and maintain his sense of humor. This restaurant has been consistently good for all these years...a Barrington treasure.

The food was good but portions size seemed small for the price. I usually get more pieces and larger in size at other restaurants. Big problem was for the wait to receive my sushi. Total of 3 plates ordered and almost 30 minute wait. Waitress said soon it would be coming and that was another 10 minute wait. This was... More
