Bad service. Waited one hour for our reserved traditional low table. At last they offered a usual table. This, after four times asking us to confirm that we had reserved a traditional table. We left. Bad management. Bar service while we were waiting was bad...More

Typically Sapporo is top on our list tonight no bueno. Our server was new so it could have been that. We arrived during daylight and are finally leaving now at 846pm, two hours. The dragon martini, unless you like black licorice, it's terrible. It took...More

Funky place with a great vibe. Service was excellent, food was good but over priced. We went for a date but it was loud and not conducive for quiet conversation. Nice Japanese chefs with great talent.

As others have noted, this place is slick looking and set up very nicely (great lighting and appointments). In addition, the food was good and plentiful. The highlight of the meal was the service, especially our college-educated chef who engaged us all appropriately (customer first,...More

Sapparo is a beautiful, trendy restaurant and the atmosphere is both energetic and fun. Unfortunately, we found the food to be very mediocre. Their lemon chicken dish had decent flavor but the chicken was a little dry. The teppanyaki dish and fried rice was not...More
