This was a first for our son (11) and he thought the whole experience was super fun. We filled a grill table and enjoyed the whole 'show' which included cooking lobster, shrimp, steak and chicken. The sushi they brought out looked lovely as well.
The dressing on the salad was devine and we asked for more for our food!
We dined at night so were able to see the Christmas lights on the boats.

Talented chefs performing their magic over the tepan grill. The staff are all friendly. The miso is good. We liked the salad and peanut dressing. We had steak and scallops and both were tender and delicious. Our friends ordered the steak and shrimp and all were satisfied. The fried rice with few vegetables well prepared. Only one shrimp appetizer. The Hot nights sushi roll was good, but could be better. Our friends just got the California roll and it was just fair. I would say they could update their sauces as they were just a bit plain. It was all good Japanese food but just needs more zip and maybe a little larger portions for the price. Given it is by the wharf we expected maybe a bit more. We live inland in central California away from the ocean and we could name several Japanese restaurants in our local area that would rank higher. So it's good and must would like the meal.

Entered restaurant and immediately notice that it was a bit dirty. After visiting the bathroom I did not want to stay. If your public washrooms are dirty what does that say about the kitchen. But everyone wanted to stay. So we sat down and ordered. It was very entertaining. Food was basic and average for that type of a restaurant.
Service was slow for drinks to be refill.

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 bring the kids when they are older~
