    Great bartender. Monthly specials are always original - check the board over the sushi bar because sometimes the servers forget to mention them. The combination of Korean and sushi provides a surprising variety. The kitchen staying open until 10 on weeknights is a plus in Westborough. Not much is open that late.

    My husband and I have driven by Sapporo quite a few times and finally decided to give it a try. We wanted to try the tableside barbecue so made reservations as those tables are limited. The barbecue is built right into the table and the server did the cooking right there. We ordered rib eye and pork and were able to share. The portions were great and the food was delicious!

    We have been coming to Sapporo since it opened. The owner is very friendly. We've come with large groups and small parties. We are always welcomed and the food is amazing. It's my favorite sushi spot in Metrowest.

    I've been to Sapporo several times. I'm never disappointed. Their drink and wine list is very good. Their menu is outstanding. Many types of food to suit all palates. I am a vegetarian but went with my husband and our friend both of whom are self described meat-atarians. There was something for everyone. No one left hungry or dissatisfied.

    I am impressed by the breadth and depth of the dinner menu at Sapporo. I cannot recall another Korean restaurant that has such a large and diverse dinner menu (6 pages), not including the sushi menu. Most importantly, everything is delicious and perfectly prepared. You will not be disappointed by anything.

    My first time dining at this neighborhood gem of a restaurant. I loved the greeting, the atmosphere, the service and of course, the crowned jewel - the food! I eat a Paleo diet and they had a Paleo menu which was awesome. Even if they didn't have that special menu, the choices for my tastes were abundant. The different flavors, the huge portions and just the overall experience was really outstanding and I can't wait to go back again. Thank you Sapporo!

    Our first time to Sapporo. Went there after reading the online reviews for a family dinner. The food is excellent, our waiter Spencer was awesome. We ordered the shrimp fried rice, Bibim Bap, Nabi Yake Udon and Je Yuk Bokkum. The Korean side dishes were awesome too. Great food, great ambience and great service. We will definitely be back.

    My wife had been to Sapporo with friends and enjoyed it and suggested we go. Since it was several towns away, I was wary but we were tired of all our local restaurants so I gave in, hopped in the car and made the drive. I'm sure glad I did! The food seemed very fresh and it was delicious. The service was great, ambiance was just right...upscale without being too snooty. Overall it was a very good experience and though it's not right around the corner for us we will return when we need a change of pace.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/6/2013
    This was my 2nd visit to Sapporo. Last time we had Korean style BBQ and it was OK, although the taste was a bit too sweet. So we decided to give it a 2nd try .We ordered Yaki-udon,which is a Japanese noodle dish, and Korean style cold noodle. Both of them were total disappointment. Yaki-udon was far from authentic Japanese taste. As for the Korean cold noodle, it was just awful. Noodles and vegetables were swimming in too much mud of too spicy, too sweet sauce and almost inedible. I do not stick to authenticity as long as dishes are taste good, but both we ordered were just terrible.

    Came here twice for the buffet special they have from Tuesdays to Fridays until 2pm. They have a small sushi selection, but the food is fairly good. Good place to meet with friends or co-workers for a nice chilled atmosphere with ambient lighting. The noise level is comfortable, setting is cool and clean. Prices are average.

    This place is right next to our crossfit gym and I've been tortured for weeks now smelling all the wonderful food before during and after workouts. Then someone told me they had a paleo menu. We took another couple with us and we all offered from that menu. It was amazing! I can't wait to go back.

    A group of 4 went with two main desires, sushi and korean barbeque. Sapporo delivers on both. The sushi they serve is different from traditional japanese places, and some of the rolls even had some heat. So if you are not used to that, ask questions for more detail. The citrus blast was a particularly exotic and delicious sushi dish. The korean barbeque can be cooked at the table by the guest, or prepared in the kitchen by the cooking staff. We opted for the latter, being a little worn on a Friday night. Both dishes came out great. The place was busy and a tiny bit noisy, but we still enjoyed ourselves and relaxed during the service. The server was prompt and friendly.
