Went to eat looking for a sunset after driving down from San Francisco. While we did not get a sunset the Sushi was delicious and the place had a real fun atmosphere. Our waiter seemed a little in the weeds maybe new or confused but overall a great experience

The staff were really helpful and efficient. The "chef" cooked the food in front of us whilst performing a "cabaret act" which entertained all at the table ( we were sitting with a couple of American guys. Everyone was treated to a very good meal in a wonderful setting with stunning views out over the sea. We so enjoyed the... More

After spending the day site seeing in Monterey we came here for dinner. Our family had already been here a couple of times and raved about the food. We were very pleased with the sushi selections and thought the food was priced right. The view from the restaurant is a nice added feature.

This restaurant is located on Wharf II and you can get a good seat next to the window you can see the water. We sat on the side that had the "normal" tables, not the cooking tables. We had 3 appetizers and all were very good, would recommend the dumplings (if you like them) and the calamari - big thick... More

Wife and I went for lunch mid-week. We were promptly seated, as requested, at one of the cooking tables. Unfortunately we were the first at the table, and as it was late for lunch we spent quite a while waiting for the table to fill up. The views from the restaurant, which sits on the second floor, out over the... More

Not fancy. Very very good and fresh. We really enjoyed our food, the service and everything about our meal. We recommend Sapporo and plan to return.

Love this place. Visited with a coworker recently and was surprised at the quality of the sushi and the incredible view of the harbor. Sushi chef was a pleasant man who was entertaining. At the end of the meal, I was even more pleasantly surprised when I received the check. Much less than I suspected. Overall a great experience.

We came on a Saturday night and it was not very busy. It's best to come with a bunch of friends and share a lot of dishes, such as the sashimi and sushi platter, rolls, etc.

Since our move to Monterey eight months ago, I've been looking for a good sushi restaurant. The way I gauge sushi restaurant that I intend to frequent is...can I walk to it, and how is the chirashi. High marks on both counts. I finally found a place for chirashi.

I went to this place with my friends on a whim. As we walked up the stairs to the restaurant, the air was just filled with good smells coming from the kitchen. I got an order of sushi, the beef teriyaki, and the geisha. The geisha was to die for. It just tasted so perfect! The beef teriyaki had so... More
