We were all pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at Sagano's. We are a party of 10 with 5 children among us so the entertainment of watching our chef cook our Hibachi dinners was well worth it to keep the kiddos from being bored. Most of us ordered the Hibachi dinners (including steak, chicken, veggie and shrimp) which included a... More

The atmosphere was fun, the food was very good. I thought the value was there for the food and fun. We went during the week and used a Groupon so it made if very reasonable. We had four people and nobody had been there before and all four of us agreed that we would go again. That is the real... More

I just did takeout but what a great place for food if you passing through. My soup and tempura was excellent and the staff was amazing making sure the order was correct when I got there. I'll be back as this was very good and very reasonable in price!

We used to go there for sushi all the time. We liked it better than Sushi Zen. Then they changed it all to hibachi grill and are particularly fond of throwing food in people's mouths. I hate that. The hibachi food is good, but BlueFin is way better if you're looking for hibachi.

The dining and entertainment are always great, i just always end up with a terrible stomach ache after. Not sure if I am sensitive to the oil or what. It actually makes me sad that it bothers me..

The food was yummy and our chef was fun but the place lacks serious ambiance. It's so bland and it feels like you are in a warehouse. Maybe some dividers between tables or some plants would help liven up the space. The sushi side also closed which I'm not surprised with Sushi Zen down the street. It was okay but... More

I promise you will get to much food at a VERY reasonable price. $20 a person is the average but it's worth every penny

Every time I've went to Saganos I have had delicious food and a show. Good place for groups. They spend extra time with you even if it is only a couple.

We had a group of 8 out celebrating my daughter's high school graduation. We had so much fun, the table chef was hilarious and incredibly talented. The food was awesome, but be prepared for the use of butter!
