Sapporo has great, fresh sushi that is available in a variety of sush roll options. They also offer steak and other traditional Japanese dishes. They have tableside cooking (on one side of the restaurant) which is great for birthdays and other celebrations.

I couldn't wait until we left to leave a review! My man and I have been coming hear for years and there wasn't ever a time where we were disappointed! Jed is one of the most cheerful and wonderful grill cooks they have. We've had him multiple times and he is a joy each and every time. Can't wait to... More

Exceptional food at a much better price than the alternatives along the wharf. Wonderful sushi and superb steak. $5 draught beer and excellent service too. A lovely family meal. Bento box highly recommended.

The kids fancied sushi & we saw this listed on the internet. But when we got there we had not realised it also had a Hibachi grill. So we went along with that. it was a first time treat for the kids seeing food cooked in front of them by a skilled, funny and possibly slightly crazy chef. The food... More

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
