  • "I brought my son and six friends for dinner. They all loved the food and the atmosphere. I had forgotten the coupon for a free birthday dinner at home and when I mentinoned this to the staff they told me I was more than welcome to come back again and use it as long as it was still within the birthday month!!!! Seriously? I was spending a couple of hundred dollars on the group. I had booked it as a birthday dinner and paid for the birthday dessert and photo. I will make sure I tell people how awful their customer service is!!!"

  • "This was my 2nd time here ,both times were at the Hibachi Table! What a wonderful and entertaining experience! The food was fabulous! From the Lobster and Scallops to the Filet Minion and Shrimp! You got to watch the food being prepared...and you could see how fresh and of good quality the food was before it was cooked! The staff was friendly and attentive! :) Very clean! 5stars in my book! Looking forward to coming back and trying the Sushi Bar!"

  • "The Hibachi was pretty good. Filet was great! They give you noodles in addition to rice & veggies. That was tasty. Their soup has a lot more fried onions & sweeter than most. Their salad is heavy on the peanut flavor. Our chef was wonderful but server was less than average. The sushi was not very good. I would not order a single piece or roll next time. They didn't understand what crab salad was & weren't even able to make it for their Cali Rolls, only have the stick. I would go back if a group asked me to but only for Filet Hibachi. Oh, they will not see you until EVERYONE in your party is there."

  • "We went for my Dad's birthday (we've previously visited for my husband's) and it was fun, as always. The chef's are charismatic and humorous and the food is fantastic. The only item that could use some work would be the hostess. She seemed overwhelmed (we got there right at open) and she was not the most warm. Someone that is the face of your lobby needs to be upbeat and happy, even when they're busy, especially in a place that thrives on being energetic."

  • "Love the shrimp & filet combo and the fun atmosphere. Don't go expecting a romantic quiet evening. Go with friends or family and have a good time. We have always had a good meal each time we have been there and downtown Brighton in the summer is hopping."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a very nice evening here. The front desk staff was attentive,the server was but had to look for her when I had a special request which she ignored or forgot. The chef was on schedule,funny and entertaining . Chef over cooked the seafood but not bad. Plenty of food. No offer of dessert (not that we wanted one) or post dinner drink. Fix those minor issues and it would be a 5 star. Just being honest so other patrons know what they are in for. Would definitely return."

  • "food was excellent. There weren't many people in the restaurant. We came in and ate our soup and salad and then 2 other people joined and we were already done with that part of our meal. We had to wait for the other people to finish theirs before a chef came. Not a huge deal, but wished they hadn't sat those two people down after we had already finished our first two courses. "

  • "This was my first time at Sagano ( or any Japanese steakhouse for that matter), and it did not disappoint. In fact, it was even better than I imagined. The food was really amazing, I had the steak/chicken combo (which I had leftovers from and I can eat a lot!), which came with delicious noodles, veggies, and a really tasty soup beforehand as well. The service was great, excellent waiter, funny cook, just a great atmosphere and experience. (I did however only catch 2 of the three pieces of chicken tossed in the air for me to catch in my mouth, I'm gunning for all three next time)! Overall, 5 out of 5 stars for sure, I will definitely be back, and would recommend it to anyone!"

  • "Food is delicious but inconsistent - chef overcooked everyone's steak at our table; staff would not accommodate seating us in the Bistro and allowing us to order off Hibachi menu d/t new policy that makes it "easier on the kitchen"; Hibachi table show is OBNOXIOUS - spraying people with squirt gun that looks like a man with his pants down; throwing food across several tables - I don't find that fun! Won't return to Sagano, but will go back to the other Japanese steakhouse in town that is more tame."

  • "Love to dine here, been going for several years. Was very disappointed this last time that we could not bring in our own cake to celebrate."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "For the price of our dinners, the food was only fair, the waiter was way to eager to get us up and out of there, he didn't listen to our requests, and was in need of a little bit more service training. For the price, we expected a much more formal dining experience. Although the chef was quite entertaining, we would not revisit this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I thought the food quality was not as good as my past visits. Hope it was a one time thing and not a new trend. Our visit was early in the day. I would suggest a later evening visit - the energy is usually more exciting."
