We try to visit Ichiban every year with old friends. Since our last visit, the menu has expanded, and the prices and portions have increased. The very competent hibachi chef provides a colorful, yet predictable, show. Overall, the service is friendly and efficient, and all the food is well-prepared and served, literally, "hot off the griddle." This is a great... More

We went for dinner without the kids. Some things to note that we enjoyed. The helpings were large which we appreciated. Our chef did not over use the oil which is much more healthy. The waitress kept bringing water which we were so thankful for. Our room was a little more traditional looking. We were lower, giving the feeling of... More

We've been to Ichiban at least a half dozen times, and we always leave happy. It's a special experience, fun, and good food. Our last visit was not the best. Good, not great. There is a huge difference between the quality of the chefs who perform at your table. Some are joyful and enthusiastic and stunning. This one was competent... More

We had a party of 10 and the Ichiban experience was excellent. We were able to sit together, eat delicious food and be entertained. What more could you ask.

I ask to go each year for my birthday. I love it. We had tempura shrimp app, shrimp & chicken and chicken teriyaki dinners. So good and the show the chef puts on is entertaining.Our hostess & server were excellent. Highly recommend!

My first time in this type of restaurant so I have no frame of reference to judge the experience. I enjoyed my time there and watching the skilled cook prepare the food. Soup was ok, mainly chicken broth and the only scallop appetizer was deep fried. It was nice once the breading was removed. The main meal was quite tasty... More

First I asked for my fried rice without veggies mixed in and I was told it had to be cooked in the kitchen, which is no problem. 5 minutes after everyone else was eating their rice cooked table side I still did not have any rice. The waitress told me it takes a while because of the kitchen. This is... More
