The sushi was very inventive
The sushi was very inventive and unique. The menu had something for everyone. It was difficult to carry on a conversation as it is quite loud, but the overall experience was very good.

We are from out of town and were dining with friends from Scottsdale. We were very pleased with our experience. The food was excellent. The service could not have been better.

Great food and a real happening
Great food and a real happening scene. If you don't like noise, you may want to skip this place. It is a plcae to see and be seen, but it dowsn't detract from the food and the genuine effort they put in to please. We loved it.

Chef was fun, did solid job on food. Service was mediocre at best especially for a Sunday evening.

Fantastic will return
I love the modern feel of this place - fun and energetic – like a party without the obnoxious people. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Kobe beef was amazing. The chef was entertaining and fun. Service was well-timed and friendly, only word to wise at the Teppan tables they charge the gratuity with the meal (18%.

Fun atmosphere, great food. The staff was amazing and the manger was friendly.

I went here to celebrate my birthday and it was PERFECT! They had a room in the back that sat 20 people so I booked the room. Last minute about 6 people cancelled but Sapporo was very understanding and still allowed me access to the room. The room was tucked away so we felt private and we all very much enjoyed everything. The food was excellent! The chef we had was HILARIOUS he did tricks like most other teppenyaki places but he also interacted with us. The servers we had were very nice, helpful, and very attentive to our party. At the end they offered to split the check without us asking and the proccess went very smoothly. All-in-All a perfect night!

Great Dinner - Awesome Price
I went with my mother and grandmother to Sapporo - we took advantage of the Happy Hour special from 3p-7p. Between the price and the food itself, the meal was DELICIOUS. The service was exceptional and I would absolutely go back.

We were staying at Scottsdale resort and asked an employee where she would go for seafood. Without hesitation she said Sapporo, and gave us directions. I looked it up on Open Table and made a reservation for about 1 hour later. Best meal we had during our week long stay in Scottsdale. I had Salmon and my husband Mahi Mahi. Both cooked to perfection. Will definitely return if we make it back to Scottsdale.

Great experience except for the sun
Sun is a bit of a problem outdoors. Sun screens would be helpful. We arrived at 5:30 and move out of the sun once but it found us again.

Service Beyond the Norm ...
We had not been to Sapporro for several years and, upon returning, questioned a favorite dish that did not appear on the menu. Our waitress, who was fairly new, did not recall this dish and offered what she thought might be similar. However, once Molly, the Manager or Assistant Manager stepped in, she checked with the kitch staff and the Chef who remembered this peppered tuna with lobster dipping sauce and prepared this wonderful dish for us. It was delicious and we especially want to thank Molly who went out of her way to make our evening enjoyable.

My husband and I decided on sushi for date night and we had never tried Sapparos. We were presently surprised. It was a little busy, but completely enjoyable. We will definitely be returning.
6/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the moment we stepped in the door - Sapporo's staff was attentive, professional and friendly! Beautiful restaurant, great food and wonderful staff
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everyone at Sapporo was great and the portions and quality of sushi was very good!

Great Happy Hour
Great happy hour. Food was great also. Service was right on also. Recommend going there.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service very good once we were seated,which was 30 mins late. Too noisy in bar area for conversation.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a little on the pricey side, but worth every penny! Great food and great service!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is unreal! We ordered sushi and lemon/chili chicken. The flavors were out of this world! We did request a booth on our reservation and of course they had "just seated" all the booths...I do not understand why if they know we have a reservation that they would seat all the booths right before we got there...?

Memorable Dinner Experience
Sapporo continues to be one of my favorite dining experiences. Creative seafood and sushi, professional servers, top wine list and great people watching. Our experience this time was excellent overall except for one thing - even though we checked in with the hostess and were promptly seated, the reception staff somehow forgot to record that we had showed up. Imagine my surprise when OpenTable contacted me the next day asking why I had missed my reservation!. Hostess staff need some re-training. Otherwise, another great dinner. Looking forward to next time.

old fav under new ownership
Closed the one in Vegas, but every time we visit Scottsdale we make a pit stop here. The ownership changed so instead of the traditional teppan chefs trained in Japan, they are mexican chefs that seem to be going through the motions. Can't fault them, but its takes away from the experience a little for me. Food was still great, a little on the salty side so drink plenty of water to clean out your system!

valets should walk, not customers
We always enjoy the food here. Pricing is more than reasonable for the quality of the sushi and the teppanyaki. Drinks are awesome.
But we always have the same complaint- the valet service (which now costs $4) always has all of the parking spaces in front of the restaurant reserved/blocked off. So the customers walk while the valets do not. This leaves a bad taste in any customer's mouth, especially when there are literally hundreds of parking spots behind the restaurant where the valets could park the cars and run to for the amount they CHARGE you (plus tip). We complained to the management several years ago but apparently they have not changed the practice. It is one of the reasons we usually only go around once a year rather than weekly.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Johnny dynamite roll was awesome and same with the Scottsdale roll. It's very loud in the entire restaurant so if you don't like that then I suggest going on any other day than Friday or Saturday. Love this place!

Outstanding food and service!
Outstanding food and service! Do and will visit many times!!!!

it was a nice happy hour
and we could sit outside - instead of the noise from music and TV we had the noise from the street. Nevertheless, the food is pretty good, and so are the drinks. This means we will come again once in a while. My wife likes Sushi, and their selection seems to be a great one.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time, great place.
Great waiters, hilarious chef, ambience is hip and fun, food is fantastic... a MUST go!

Our 'server', who in this
Our 'server', who in this restaurant is the person who prepares your food table side, was amazing! It was my daughter's birthday and he made the event all about her. He managed to move from "performing" which is what I expected, to incorporating her into his entire meal preparation. It was amazing and as mother I could not have been happier. The picture I have of her interacting with him is 'ear-to-ear-could-only-happen-here' grin. Well done!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Shrimp was perfect. Cooks had great fun. Wait staff was genuine. Hostesses were authentic. All around Perfect!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The choice of music did not fit the restaurant theme. Classic rock has it's place but not at teppanyaki, and the volume made it very difficult to have a conversation. This diminished the experience significantly. The shame is, if it wasn't for the music thing, the food, service, and ambience would be great spot for that special occasion.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience!
I brought a date to Sapporo for a romantic dining experience. The ambiance, seating, food, and service all added to what turned into a wonderful evening. Highly recommended!

Party with family
We had a fantastic time at Teppan Yaki. There were 14 of us and we had an awesome time. The food was delicious and the chef was entertaining and talented. Fantastic time for a group party! Definitely recommend.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just like always, the food and sushi were awesom ! We drive from the west valley for the great food and service.

I felt the service from the server was wonderful. I was disappointed that our cook gave us less than the others. The salad was not made infront of us like normal... And when I looked at other tables, they had a cook that gave more personality and tricks. We let our cook know it was our anniversary and thought maybe he would do a little something extra for the occasion, but there was nothing more than the cooking from him. The server was great though!

Food reliable. The vents d didn't catch all of the smoke so we inhaled a lot of it which runs a meal pretty quickly

Sapporo - great again...
Sapporo is one of our go-to favorites, especially when hosting guests. Perfect mix of 'best of' choices in food, drink, ambiance, happy hour, late night, etc. Great local gem.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We come to Sapporos often and saying the food is awesome still does not do it justice!! The service and ambience is awesome! This restaurant is beyond any expectation you might have.

Best Teppanyaki in the Valley
I've seen a lot of attempts at Teppanyaki since I've lived in the valley but none have measured up.Until now. Sapporro was excellent. David (our chef) was very entertaining and prepared the meals perfectly.
We tried both the Cougar Roll and the Friends with Benefits Roll. Delicious!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my girlfriend out for a nice dinner. I had been to Sapporos several times before, but she had not. As always the food was good and the prices are fair. I've always liked the look and feel of the restaurant and my girlfriend liked it as well. The staff was friendly and out waiter was attentive. Always a nice experience and will return in the future.

Best Teppanyaki In Town
Sapporo has always been a family favorite of ours. The food is phenomenal as well as the Teppanyaki experience. We always enjoy ourselves and have a memorable time. Sunday's dining experience was no different, with the exception of one of the best servers we've ever had. She kept us laughing the entire time. I always look forward to dining with Sapporo.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Something for everybody.
Sapporo is a bustling restaurant with valet parking and a nightclub atmosphere.
Large groups, families with small children and enthusiastically flirting singles in a wide range of age groups were all having a great
Our table was able to overlook the bar area with views of the Teppanyaki chefs. There were bartenders standing above the bar pouring cocktails into pyramids of glasses, knives being spun and rattled together at the grills, energetic music, tables of strangers mingling - a lot going on!
The food was good with the Cougar rolls being remarkable! Some of the food dishes were named after nicknames of types of bar patrons or behaviour. Cute!
It was a fun evening of good food in an exciting atmosphere!

Sushi night out
We went out with relatives who live in the area and had wonderful sushi. Everything was so freshly made. We then ordered a few entrees to share. The 1/2 price appetizers and drinks are a plus for a less expensive evening of great food and drink.

Great Sushi & Cocktails
Sashimi was as fresh as fresh can be (especially when in a desert). Their small, but certainly distinguished, cocktail list was fabulous. Booths provide an intimate experience while seated in a vibrant setting. The service was great. I highly recommend and cannot wait to go back!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and service. We would have ranked it 5 stars if not for the loud ambience. It is definitely loud - music and "in-scene" crowd..... But, you can't deny the fantastic food, presentation and service!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
We opted to eat here for Thanksgiving and appreciate that the restaurant is open. The meal was very good, including our sushi and desserts. Wait staff was very attentive. My biggest complaint about Sapporo is the music level - maybe consider turning it down, especially for a family oriented meal like Thanksgiving. My meal came with asparagus rather than the sweet potato that was on the menu, but it was quickly corrected.
