I planned a birthday get together here and found that although this restaurant has great food it is lacking in management. When I made reservations the earliest time they would let me book was 9pm, citing that they were full with other reservations. We decided to show up at 7:30 anyway and get our name on the list. When we... More

I am a frequent visitor to Louisville for both work and recreation. I have also sampled sushi all over the country. Sapporo downtown is a great spot for sushi and may be your only choice now if you're staying downtown. The decor is contemporary as is some of the chef's creations. The service is friendly and knowledgeable and ready to... More

excellent. Got happy hour prices and 3 excellent appetizers. Included a $4 28-ounce Sapporo beer. The muscles were addictive. The fried tofu crispy with a nice soft tofu. The Goyza were the loser but still good. Will definitely go again. Plus it's convenient very close to the Brown Hotel.

Soup was okay, and I suggested that everyone else add a little soy sauce to their salad. They did and they loved it. Main... More

Of course, I saw sushi so we stopped. Ordered saki and was told by waitress and bartender that, saki comes cold so I could not exchange it for hot saki, they would warm it up. ????? We sat at the sushi bar and good thing, I handed in my sushi order and it was good. However the waitress never placed... More

Great deals during happy hour, tuna tataki and a large sapporo. It is a great place to head to before a show at louisville palace theatre.
