If you have never been to a restaurant like this it is worth the trip. You sit with other people if your group is smaller than the table and the place is so noisy with all the cooking stations going don't expect to do much talking or catching up with your friends. You get ton of food so expect a... More

Decided to try Sagano despite hearing bad things about the place and was pleasantly surprised. My husband and I shared the Emperors Deluxe. We shared a filet, lobster tail, shrimp, and scallops. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The chef was friendly, however the wait staff was not very attentive. Overall we had a great experience and will return in... More

First of all, let me tell you that I have NEVER eaten Japanese food because i thought it all had peanut oil in it. At Sagno's they use sesame oil and WOW, it was great. It's a restaurant where they have a chef in the middle with his own, huge hibachi, surrounded by tabletop, on all four sides. The waiter/waitress... More

A great birthday meal. A lot of food for the money. Enjoy the chef show during preparation. If you are friendly and don't mine getting to know others over your meal- this is a great time. Just an fyi-they longer serve sushi. Several birthday celebrations we all had a good time. Definitely will return.

Have dined here three times. Fairly consistent food and service each time. Traditional Japanese steakhouse where the chef cooks the food at your table (which is actually just a big grill). Most of the chefs are fun, some are better than others. The food is actually very good. Not high end, but for the type of restaurant, which is more... More

We had a wonderful Japanese chef who cooked our food at the table. He was fabulous. We all enjoyed our meals and had an amazing variety cooked to perfection...everything from lobster and scallops to shrimp and beef. And we all went home with a generous serving in our "doggie boxes". My husband, who didn't go got the pleasure of my... More

This is a fun place for a celebration or group. The chef cooking our dinner was very entertaining and friendly. He put on quite a show. We had a lot of laughs catching morsels of meat in our mouths as they were flung at us off a spatula by our talented chef. He paid special attention to the youngest lady... More

Sagano has a pineapple/chicken fried rice that is out of this world! In the back they have the Japanese chef tables where you sit around the cook surface and have your own chef put on a show while preparing your food - it is really fun for a group or birthday.

They have a special with sushi rolls and the Key West was incredible and a great value. The Poopoo platter was good, a bit overcooked on the chicken skewers, the tuna was wonderful.
