Full disclosure: I don't eat sushi. BUT all of my friends do, and they cannot stop raving about how amazing the sushi is at Sapporo. It almost makes me want to eat sushi just so I can have the same taste bud explosions they seem to have! I had chicken hibachi and it was very good. The chef was funny,... More

I've visited Sapporo several times; each visit has been very good. I enjoy my lunch visits the best because the bento boxes are great! I've gotten the bulgogi (Korean beef) bento several times and the amount of food you get is quite good for a lunch portion (and lunch prices). Sapporo recently finished remodeling and the restaurant has a nice... More

Excellent bar to start with a cocktail first. Then you are free to choose a table directly at the Sushi bar or at one of the different types of tables. Brilliant selection of Sushi, Sashimi and all types of roles, which you can imagine. At this stage we doubted a bit, as often a too long menue does not necessarily... More

The place was very clean and "oriental" in atmosphere. The service was good and not too much or too little. They had vegetarian sushi and I forgot to order the soy roll so my first course came with seaweed wrapper which I positively dislike. They changed it out even though I had not specified. I got the avocado roll. Very... More

Looking for a quick lunch that is handmade to order? Go to Sapporo! Their sushi specials at lunch are $10 and includes a salad. Have been there many times and will continue to go. It is an absolute treat to go for lunch or dinner! The atmosphere is very classy and is perfect after a show at the Palace Theater.

Part of a one night visit to Louisville. Walked here from the Hilton Garden Inn. Great service, excellent sushi and generous portions. Server was friendly and talkative. The sushi was high quality with creative pairings. Pleasantly surprised at what a gem this place was.

My wife and I were in Louisville for a conference. We tried Sapporo because of other reviews on Trip Advisor, and it did not disappoint. Prices were reasonable, the atmosphere was great, and although our waiter was awkward and spilled water every time he poured a glass, he was friendly, helpful, and knowledgable of the menu. The only downside was... More

This is my favorite sushi spot in Louisville. They have my favorite roll I've ever had, the Surf n Turf (fried lobster and asparagus inside with spicy crab and thinly sliced rare steak on too). Their hibachi is also very good and fun. They recently remodeled so I am curious to see how it turned out.

Firstly, we walked in to Sapporo which is located at Bardstown Rd however there was a waiting line for 45 minutes. So we decided to go the on on 4th st. Just right after we walked in to the restaurant, server Andrew Fry showed his warm service with genuine passion for his job. He gave us recommendations and served dishes... More

I've always had a strong dislike of sushi, it just never tasted good to me at all. My special lady friend wanted to go out for sushi and inspired me to be brave and try it again. Believe me when I say I was very reluctant. I tried the Oaks roll which had rare beef tataki and spicy crab and... More
