  • Overpriced without Groupon

    Groupon prix fixe was good value vs regular menu. The sunset view is nice, although there was a large dinner meeting of 20 going on which got a bit loud. Sake was served warm in the traditional carafe. One of the best miso soups in recent memory. Mandarin and almond ginger salad was the usual iceberg lettuce salad and ginger dressing with mandarin slices and toasted almonds. Sushi was 4 California rolls and 6 large pieces of sashimi (tuna, salmon, and some white fish), so decent size. The beef entree was 2 skewers which were good quality meat and not over cooked and with a tasty sauce accompanied with seasonal veggies and rice. Dessert was a small scoop of either green tea or ginger ice cream topped with a strawberry.

    Enjoyed my time in Sagano. Our waitress made the evening feel extra special by not rushing us through our courses. She was attentive without being in our face. We had a 5 coarse meal. Every flavour from our Miso soup , salad, sashimi/ rolls, and main coarse where we both choose the salmon was superb. If you a ginger lover I recommend the ginger ice cream for desert… so good. We will definitely be back.

  • Very Poor Choice
    2Frank
    Dined on 5/25/2014
    The food quality was poor. This is an expensive restaurant located within a Hotel at the top of a very scenic floor overlooking Toronto. Miso soup was good and that's about it. Sushi was poor. Rice was poor. Chicken was fair but beef was some of the poorest I had tasted. I could not complete the bite! Tempura was also of low quality. The bill was particularly high. Paying around $50 for a set dinner with a pop is exorbitant for the quality. This restaurant should either improve or get out of the business.

  • Too much for too little
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/29/2014
    I was expecting more. This is not an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant, nor did I think it was when I made the reservation. However I've been to several AYCE places, so naturally I have them in mind as a comparison for quality and value. Typically an AYCE sushi resto charges around $25 per person. So if I'm paying $35 for a plate of sushi at Sagano, I want it to be noticeably better. But it wasn't. It's essentially the same decent sushi you can get anywhere, with a much higher price tag. It is however a much quieter, less crowded experience. And if you get a window seat, you have a view of the 401 (whether that is a plus or minus is a personal choice). With all the great sushi restaurants available, I'm disappointed I chose this one.

    Upon reading other reviews of Sagano, I was expecting it to be a bit pricey; but considering the quality of the food and the excellent service, I found the price to be well in line with the experience. I suppose, technically, a view of the 401 isn't considered scenic, but when you're 15 stories up, enjoying a glass of wine looking down on the rush hour commuters; it does make one feel well separated from the " rat race ". Given the chance I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

  • Nice Top-floor view of the City

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    This place is a hidden gem! Hidden in the sense it is hard to find...just remember that its in the Hotel, you don't have to pay for the paid parking (just know your plate number), and once inside the hotel maybe ask for directions to the elevator that takes you to the top floor where this Restaurant is. We had a window seat that was looking over the City on a nice clear night with an orange moon rising in the east, can't beat that. The service was really wonderful, and although I wouldn't call myself a connoisseur of this genre of food, it was the best Japanese food I've ever had. I'd recommend getting out to this one to see for yourself.

  • Good but not great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 2/7/2014
    This restaurant was recommended to us and the view, abmience and service were all very good. We had one of the five course dinners, which includes steak and lobster. We are used to this meal served in Teppanyaki style at other Toronto restaurants and the food was good but not great. The soup and avocado salad were very good but the main seemed a little overcooked and the flavours just didn't seem to be there. Overall a good dining experience and worth another try.

    It is usually a pleasure to dine at Sagano. Previously the food and the service has been very good. This time, because of Winterlicious the service was less than stellar. I wish I had know that this was happening and I would not have booked.

    With entrees in the $25-$35 range, I won't be back anytime soon ! Even with the groupon, it was a pricey dining experience. There was nothing fabulous about the food for that price... and frankly, if we are paying for the view, it is not worth it either! I can get the same food for a lot less at Tako Sushi. On the plus side - the waiter and manager were very friendly and accommodating.

    This was a really small restaurant and kind of confusing to find. There weren't many signs giving direction, we kinda stumbled upon it. Entering the restaurant, you can tell they were trying to maximize the seating spaces in the area, hence it was kind of cramped. Not much privacy, you can hear the couple next to your table whispering, other than that the view is pretty. The food was meh, nothing stood out. I tried the following dishes: Avocado & shrimp salad, Miso Soup, Seared scallops, Seared black cod, Assorted sashimi, Soft shell crab, Terriyaki steak & Terriyaki & lobster. Overall, this was an overpriced japanese restaurant. I would recommend people trying it and form an opinion for themselves but i probably won't go back.

    Food was great. Had two appetizers, with two mains, a drink each, and a shared dessert. Very nice ambiance, and the waiting staff was excellent. Our reservation was at 8:30 but arrived 5 minutes or so late due to the weather, however, it was not busy at all so they did not have any problems still accomodating us. Didnt have to wait long to be served. As soon as we were finished with our appetizers, our main course was served right away. We had the Spicy Salmon, and Dynamite Shrimp sushi rolls, and for our mains we both had the Teriyaki Beef. It is a bit pricey so I reccomend trying to find a voucher deal like we did. Food was tasty though. The view was nice, even though it just overlooked the 401, it was still nice with all the lights.

    Our first time there. Service was really great! But then there wasn't many people in the restaurant. Nice view. Food was just alright. Sushi appetizer was salty or maybe it was the soy sauce they used. Deep fried soft shell crab appetizer was tasty & my husband's lobster (main dish) was very flavourful & his steak was just ok. My grilled black cod was lacking in flavour, but cooked well. Dessert was great! Overall it was an ok dining experience. I'm basing that judgement mostly on the food and not the service. I'd give the restaurant overall a 5 out of 10 rating. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for the food. Too much money for just ok food. I wasn't overly impressed.
