"A staple restaurant for fun family dinners. We've been coming here for over 10 years to celebrate birthdays, graduations, etc, and never once have I walked away with a lackluster feeling. The hibachi style tables are where it's at. Watch as the chefs put on a display of epic culinary proportions."
"Nice restaurant! The cocktails are one of a kind and the seating at some of the hibachi tables are very interesting, unlike anything I've ever seen before. Great Hibachi."
"Their food is cooked with the freshest ingredients, and tastes great. The atmosphere is filled with authentic decor that makes it feel like you are in a true Japanese Steakhouse."
"Celebrated my birthday at Ichiban this year; my entire family has a blast, and the food was amazing as always!!!"
"Hibachi places are always a fun time, and Ichiban has great food, and a fun atmosphere. More expensive than the usual night out, but definitely worth it for the added fun of the grilltop table. The steak was cooked perfectly and the chef caught all of the shrimp, so he gets extra bonus points."
"We had an amazing experience last night. Our wait on a Saturday night wasn't long and the place was packed. The hibachi show was enjoyable and the food was delicious."
"The food is always amazing. Much better than the Hibichi places in the Utica/Rome area. The food was cooked and flavored perfectly, not bathed in oils or heavy sauces. We also had the Yoshi Roll, which was honestly the best sushi roll I've ever had. It made for a lovely birthday dinner, with enough leftovers for 3 meals!"
"I have been to several Japanese hibachi restaurants in the area and in other parts of the country. Ichiban is by far the best for food quality. They have pleasant and friendly atmosphere as well."
"Absolutely amazing experience, it was quiet when we went first thing as they opened so it was a quiet, relaxing experience. The hibachi chef was very sweet and did an amazing job. Fried rice was great and the steak was cooked absolutely perfect medium rare. Would definitely recommend."
"Great time also my first time there. Food was great and our waitress was very informative and on top of it."
"Great food and entertaining show."
Time and time again, Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse has been recognized in the greater Syracuse area as one of the best—if not the best—place to go for delicious, authentic Japanese cuisine. After all, "Ichiban" means "#1," and both the quality of our food, the customer service, and overall general experience prove it, as the reviews above can attest to.
