Terrible Food, NO FRESH and the smell no good. Decoration is dirty a lot of powder. Don't go, in the zone are the best GOOD Japanese Restaurants.

I have eaten at Sapporo for over 25 years and always have a great time. I'm happy that I can now bring my kids (2 & 4) to Sapporo and they are also huge fans. The strings beans that they give you at the start of the meal are like crack. We have started buying the sauce from the restaurant... More

I have been going to this restaurant for about 20 years or so...I love it. The seats that are sunken into the ground are my favorite. Makes for such a fun experience! Their tempura is so light, the teriyaki is so succulent and sushi always fresh. I haven't been there to recently but I remember they used to give you... More

Apparently this place is under new management, and we decided to check it out since we just moved into the neighborhood. We sat at the sushi bar and got very nice personal attention and conversation and explanations from the two skilled sushi chefs there, in addition to attentive service from the waitresses. They gave us several free samples of things... More

My wife and I went to Saporro for the first time last night and loved the food. The combination menu was very reasonably priced ($14.95 for miso soup, salad, appetizer, entree and rice).

This long time Japanese restaurant offers plenty of sushi, sashimi and cooked entrees. None of them are amazing, just simple and most of the time fresh. A couple visits the sushi was not so good, some times it was great. Grab a booth, table or sit on the floor (uncomfortably) and enjoy. Note that it's not ideal for a quiet... More

My husband and I eat at Sapporo all the time, the sushi is the best, the atmosphere is nice, they have different sections for sitting, you can sit in a booth, at a regular table, and on the floor. they are always really nice and the service is great.
