We picked this place for a birthday celebration. It did not disappoint. There were many dishes to pick from, rice, noodles, seafood, veggie dishes steak and more. When reserving a table you must pick between Tempenaki and regular dining. We would have liked Tempenaki but...More

Ali, we hated to see you leave. When we sat you at a Traditional table, your party said they wanted TeppanYaki, we moved you to a TeppanYaki table but unfortunately that also wasn't what you wanted. We apologize for the confusion. We would love to...More

Typically Sapporo is top on our list tonight no bueno. Our server was new so it could have been that. We arrived during daylight and are finally leaving now at 846pm, two hours. The dragon martini, unless you like black licorice, it's terrible. It took...More

I would recommend this restaurant for its great sushi but average service. The restaurant is easy to find and park right off scottsdale road. The live flames at you enter and inviting atmosphere make this a great place for a date or business meeting that...More

Funky place with a great vibe. Service was excellent, food was good but over priced. We went for a date but it was loud and not conducive for quiet conversation. Nice Japanese chefs with great talent.

As others have noted, this place is slick looking and set up very nicely (great lighting and appointments). In addition, the food was good and plentiful. The highlight of the meal was the service, especially our college-educated chef who engaged us all appropriately (customer first,...More

Sapparo is a beautiful, trendy restaurant and the atmosphere is both energetic and fun. Unfortunately, we found the food to be very mediocre. Their lemon chicken dish had decent flavor but the chicken was a little dry. The teppanyaki dish and fried rice was not...More
