“Great Sushi, great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I never knew we were sushi fans- and then we ate at Sapporo. We have eaten there plenty since we first tried it and get more adventurous with each visit! Our favorite roll is the house special roll... It's delicious. During our last visit the staff shared with us an 'on the house' taste of a roll the chef had made, and not just for us,l but for all of the tables around us. Sapporo is small but quaint with unique decor. We love to eat here with friends and its great sushi everytime!

“Best Sushi in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

They have the best sushi in town (better than other local Japanese restaurants and Wegmans'), it's BYOB, the decor is nice and staff very attentive. My only complaints are their hibachi chicken and teriyaki chicken entrees. Both are lacking on flavor- BIG TIME.

“Best sushi - 10 years running, for a reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I probably eat at Sapporo 2-3 times a week now, and there is a reason. The sushi is incredible. The staff, who always are great, will absolutely go out of their way to take care of you. It is BYOB, so bring along your own beer or wine to complement dinner.

Was just there again this past Sunday with a colleague and had a great early dinner. Try the Spicy Salmon Roll, it never disappoints. Ida, who has worked there as long as I have been a customer, is a gem. All the staff are great, but if you are lucky enough to have him wait on you, he will attend to your every need.

“Great sushi, great service. Definitely surprising for this area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner last night and were lucky to grab the last open table on a Saturday at 7:30. Service was fast and friendly. We started with gyoza and cucumber salad, both great, followed by several rolls. Everyone at the table got and loved the Angel Hair roll, and I enjoyed the summer roll (with seared pepper tuna... Just ask them to go light on the sauce. Not super spicy but they apply generously!) Everyone finished every piece on their plate even though we were full because it was too good to leave sitting. We didn't know it was BYO but the green tea was decent. Definitely will be back!

The rolls here are fresh and made-to-order. Never had a bad experience at this restaurant!
