Great place to get a nice food within a great environment. The ramens are excellent and seems to be the great speciality of the restaurant. You can chose a small variety of entrances, very tasteful. I liked so much the entrance with “Japanese bread” and...More

Yes the ramen is a little pricey but so so good. The place is very casual and busy and fun.The classic ramen is great but I think I liked my husband's spicier version even more.

The ramen here is first-rate, and the atmosphere is very cool and authentic. We visited Japan, and it's very similar to the ramen places there. Very pricey, though. We spend over $80 for two for lunch. Bring you wallet, and you'll enjoy.

A busy $$$$ ramen shop with a buzzy atmosphere. Attentive staff. Hip decore. Always a wait. Always a delight. Pork buns rock. Solid ramen choices with extras that pile on the price. My favorite hand made noodles with good - but not exceptional - broth.

It was a bit crowded when we arrived - we were told it would be a forty minute wait, which turned out to be only about 15. Service was quick. We had the edamame, tori-karaage (which was very good), and the ichiraku ramen (it was...More

Ippudo is a small busy ramen spot with a good selection of noodle choices and starters. Ingredients are fresh and delicious. Service is fast and seating is a bit crowded but standard for noodle places. I like sitting at the bar. When you need a...More

It's been a few years since I first visited Ippudo, and this time returned with kids. The food and service was just exceptional. Tried their steamed buns (worth it!!) and a variety of ramen bowls. Everything was wonderful. Note that at 11am, when the restaurant...More

I don't think so. He wait isn't bad if your party consists of 1 or 2. They also have bar style seating as well.
