“Great place to eat and celebrate even with a Shellfish allergy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

It is hard to find a place that will accommodate my daughters Shellfish Allergy but from the moment we walked in the door to the end of our meal we never had a concern that we would be running her to the ER that night. The staff took every precaution the could to give everyone a wonderful and safe meal. My husband and I had Scallops and the other party had shrimp so it was a bit scary. The Chef took the time to listen to our concerns and then the time to explain to the other party that he would cook the none shellfish foods after the veggies, noodles and rice then move on to the shellfish so that we could all enjoy our meal. It was a wonderful 18th birthday for our daughter who loved the food and felt like she could eat without concern. Thanks Sagano for a wonderful evening.

“Great fun and delicious food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Our 10 year old granddaughter chose this restaurant for her birthday dinner. We were surprised at her choice, but delighted with the outcome. The chef at our hibachi was entertaining, and he cooked up generous portions (which made yummy take-home meals). Her birthday coincided with kids' night - $4 meals - which made it even better. We'll be back.

“Always Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We've been eating here for the last year or so, and it is truly my favorite local restaurant. Granted, I've never tried the sushi (I'm vegetarian), but the hibachi never disappoints. The chefs have stellar attitudes and skill, and the food is absolutely delicious. It's also very convenient that you can make reservations through Open Table!

“Great place for a special event, underrated sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

If you have a group for dinner, there isn't a better place in Brighton. The staff is typically fun, but will almost always depend on the liveliness of your group. The hidden gem here, however, is the sushi. It's fresh, with lots of available rolls, and always tasty.

“Sushi or HIbachi; You cannot go wrong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our family loves the hibachi side and the sushi bistro side. The kids find the chefs on the hibachi side entertaining and the prepared in front of you meals delicious. Honestly, over 10+ times going, never a bad meal, not even a marginal one - the quality of the beef is outstanding. Love the friend rice and veggies as well, almost as much as the proteins!

For lunch or a quiet dinner, try the Bistro side; excellent high quality sushi and sashimi. The miso and salad are also excellent. Presentation is excellent as well, which makes it just that much more delicious. This is the best sushi in the area, and we have tried the others.

The decor on the bistro side is very nice, and the hibachi side is what you expect. Very good quality, cannot go wrong with Sagano.
