BEWARE of this restaurant! We chose to go to Ichiban in the Waterworks Plaza for dinner tonight solely because they advertised an offer on the radio for a free birthday dinner if your birthday is within 5 days (proof required). My wife and I share April 4th as a b-day and my dad's is the 6th so Hibachi it is.... More

Last night I decided to attend dinner at the waterworks location with friends. This was the second night in a row I was at this restaurant because my over all experience was one I enjoyed at this location. Last night however I was truly disappointed and I will never go back to eat here after last night. From the start... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past with no issues. While we are not big fans of the noodles or the amount of squash as part of the vegetables served with all the entrees, while on this trip, a woman at the table proclaimed an allergy to onions. Therefore, there were no onions included in the... More

Fun for the whole family. Great food and plenty of it. Enough to take home for a whole second meal. I got the steak and chicken, noodles, rice, soup and salad. I love their ginger dressing for the salad. Not a great beer selection but let's face it, your there for the food. Cooked in front of you on the... More

We have been to this restaurant several times over the years. When it first opened, we were so happy to have a hibachi place in our area! The food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and the hibachi chefs are wonderful!! When you have a birthday in the group, they bring out a flaming bouquet of flowers and sing! A... More

There are three dining areas with different menus. You can sit at the bar and get some food as well as a drink, there is the dining area for the kitchen menu and there is the Hibachi area where they cook the food in front of you. After some confusion we elected to dine in the kitchen area. The menu... More

A friend and I met here on a Monday evening. We started at the bar for a glass of wine and ended up dining there too. The bartender was friendly and helpful. The house wines were good and the food even better. I had some sushi and she had a teriyaki meal. The miso soup was also good. We'd met... More

Was here to celebrate a birthday while visiting relatives in the area. We had a variety of meats and seafood, cooked to our liking while we watched. Portions were quite large. Cook was quite entertaining and the two children with us had a fun time. We thought prices were reasonable. Service was good.

Looks like they have cut a few corners with the Hibachi presentation. Not the experience we originally had and we have been here many times. Drinks were good, fair price. Our waitress was very good. All Steak was served well done, they specifically ask you what your preference is but it was all well done. We actually thought the shrimp... More
