Great restaurant. We had the early dinner for £17.50 for 2 courses and a drink. There was plenty to eat and the server was very attentive. I do not agree with adding a service charge to the bill....if you want an extra 12% you should clearly include it in the prices on line and on your menu and state that service is included. That was very annoying!

Had a family meal, we sat at a table with the chef cooking for us, was really looking forward to it , the atmosphere at other tables was very good with chefs doing their performances. Ours was very poor and disappointing, he just flipped one piece of potato to each of us, that was it, and just cooked the food, the rice and veg went cold because it was put on plate, while waiting to long for him to cook food to accompany the rest of it. We did enjoy it, but our chef needs to learn from watching what the other chefs are doing, and have food ready together, not in drips and drabs.

The service was impeccable, our host for the evening was friendly and chatty and made us feel at home. Our server had "seabass" on his overalls was unbelievable and managed to create a fantastic atmosphere even at the beginning of Jan on a Monday night!! Very impressed

I have eaten at the Sapporo before so I was surprised and disappointed at how poor the service and food were. We ordered the "deluxe" banquet so were expecting some great Japanese treats. Instead we got mountains of fried potatoes and rice and hardly any proper Japanese food. The service was poor - it was difficult to get drinks and we waited almost 30 min for desert (which by the way was two scoops of ice cream and you are only allowed one flavour). The total bill was over £60 a head so this was extremely poor value for money. Never again!

We booked a table for 7:15pm and they didn’t start cooking our meal until 8:30pm. Our starters arrived cold, my daughters meal arrived cold. The service was slow the tepanyaki chef was good but wasn’t as interactive as previous times we have been. Left feeling disappointed.

We booked for new year. Our table was cancelled without warning as I hadn’t paid a deposit, when I called to pay I was told a voicemail was left, which I never received. We therefore had to sit at the bar, with our four children. The service was shocking. We got our starters within 15 minutes and then had to wait 1 hour 30 mins for our main. During this time, up to 50 people who were waiting for their tables to be ready were standing around our table, watching us eat. My sons class was spilt and shattered. I had to clean this up and a complimentary drink was not offered. We asked for the desert menu and didn’t get it, so ended up just paying and leaving. The first time I came to this restaurant was before I had a family for my 21st birthday (15 years ago) and is my favourite restaurant in Liverpool. I was really disappointed and have never seen it this Badly managed before. Won’t be rushing back in a hurry.

Fantastic place! Truly entertaining whilst at the same time being delicious. The fish dishes I had were gorgeous and cooked to perfection in front of my eyes. Kids at our table found the whole atmosphere brilliant. Only slight negative was the wait. We were booked in at 4.45 but didn’t eat until nearly 6.

Email I sent to Sapporo the morning after our visit (as of yet still not had a reply) Good morning, I’m writing regarding a visit to the restaurant yesterday for a table booked under my name at 20:30. I’m really not happy with the service me and my girlfriend received. I appreciate that Saturday night can be very busy for the staff and wouldn’t want to add additional pressure but I still feel really let down by the service. We had a drink at the bar before we was notified to take our seats, it was overall 40 minutes before we had our first course. Everyone else on the surrounding table had their starters but ours was forgot, I know this because there was two bowls of our onion soup on a table close to ours, and was only brought over 10 minutes later when the staff realised we were the only ones not eating. The main courses were delicious and it was really fun watching the chef at work, but then we faced a similar problem with desert, not having ours when everyone else on our table had one. When we paid our bill at the desk we were asked if everything was okay, my girlfriend explained all of the above and we didn’t even receive an apology. Again I’m sorry to raise a concern on what I’m sure was a busy night, but we came on our 3 year anniversary and both feel really let down considering the amount of money we paid.

Food was lovely, no complaints. Restaurant was not overly busy but service was poor. Had to ask to order drinks on every occasion and it took some time for drinks to arrive at our table. We paid a deposit at the time of booking the reservation which was not deducted from the bill. When this was addressed with front of house they had an attitude. In a nutshell, lovely food and entertainment but poor service.

Regardless of anything else, I asked for some help proposing and although the music I requested wasn’t able to be played, the staff helped me in other ways to ensure my now fiancée said yes and I couldn’t be happier :)
