Had a 5pm reservation for 8 people, upon arrival, was informed that we would be seated by the hibachi station by the door. It is a cold day, with 2 younger children, we asked for a shift which we were informed we cannot because they are reserving the other stations for other folks? We ended up leaving and going to...

Average hibachi at average prices. For those Japanese connoisseurs, this is not the place. For those looking for a fun meal with family and friends, this is a great option. The food comes out fast and is good. Be careful not to pass the restaurant or you will need to do a few jug handles to get back to it.

Ichiban has delicious food whether or not you choose sushi/sashimi or kitchen specials! All the fish is always fresh. The presentation is beautiful and the help is friendly and knowledgeable. I love the little lamb chops served as an appetizer. The bento box is so filling that I always take some home. The kitchen specials include other eastern cuisines in... More

Great place to take the kids, so they can watch the chef's do their thing. Food is good, so is the service. However when they are busy the noise level is very high.

Best sushi in the area! Specialty rolls are excellent. There is a small bar and cocktails are excellent and reasonably priced. Try the sake flight! We always go for sushi and get a regular table easily on the weekends. We have never tried hibachi but it must be great because there is always a long wait for the hibachi tables.

Good hibachi restaurant with delicious fare. Joined other business travelers at same table for lunch, and made the most out of new friends. Will most likely visit again when in the area.

I recently visited Ichiban because I got a gift card from a friend who knows I love sushi. We went on a Friday night, and it was so crowded, there was even a wait for a table. We were seated right away though, because we sat at the sushi bar. Our meal was average AT BEST. We had the calamari... More
