I have eaten here many times over the past 30+ years, and have always been very satisfied with my meal at the hibachi table. Of the several restaurants in the Syracuse area that prepare food this way, this is the best. The restaurant is kept spotlessly clean, and is nicely arranged and decorated. The prices, while on the high side,... More

This is the restaurant that got me hooked on Japanese food-- pork dumplings, AKA: "gyoza", especially-- several years ago when I came here for a birthday party. Ever since, it's been one of my favorite places to go for special occasions. Right when you walk in the door, you know you're in for a fabulous and unique meal: the decorations... More

Our only problem with Ichiban in the past was the relatively high prices for sit-down hibachi-style dinners, but now they have introduced (slightly) smaller portion of the same great food at a considerably reduced price - on what they call the "kids menu." The portions are great for seniors - or those passing through. If you haven't been to Ichiban... More

I have been coming here for 30 years, beginning with their old location down the street. Brought my two daughters, who are now in their late twenties for their school accomplishments, birthdays and other special occasions. This is their go to restaurant for a special time. I have never been disappointed here. I love their bar area, their sushi area... More

Consistent great food and good service keep us returning on a regular basis. Hibachi chefs are entertaining!

My girlfriend and I came here for Valentines Day. The place was packed but everything was very well organized. They did a great job for the amount of people that were coming in. I highly recommend making reservations before you go even if it's not a special occasion. The Hibachi was awesome; she put on a nice show while preparing... More

three of us went there on a Thursday evening around 6ish for dinner, we were seated rather quickly. The waitress was polite but really didn't attempt to explain what drinks or dinners were available. The soup was as good as Campbell's, the salad dressing was terrible, the cook was very emotionless as he prepared our meals. I had the Steak... More

Food was good, I had some sushi which was very good and fresh but the service was very slow. I was on business and just wanted to eat quickly and leave so if you want to take your time, it would be a good place to eat.

It is owned by one of the best families I have had the privilege of knowing. The food is delicious, and they go out of their way for guests, even ones like myself with dietary restrictions! It has been a family favorite for over 3 decades and 4 generations! They take pride in their food and the service is always... More

I ate at Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse again this week, and I enjoyed another wonderful meal at this lovely ethnic restaurant. But before I get started on the review, I want to say that I appreciate the changes made to the seating, at least to the "non-hibachi" tables in the outer room. They used to be "sunken table" seating, that required... More
