Took the wife for valentines. Limited menu, but all the food was great. Sushi, steak, dessert, and a top notch chef Made it more of an experience than just a night out.

Started with blue fin tuna sushi. Had the dinner combo with included soup and slaw, and 2 proteins with rice. Upgraded the rice to fried rice and had the chicken and beef. All were good, fresh and served hot. Enjoyed the evening. Not an expert in Japanese food, but I thought this was very good.

The food was acceptable, but the chef was great. I had the lobster, steak, and chicken meal. It was good food but not overly flavourful. The decor is very dated, though. The restaurant could use an update.

Ichiban is a fantastic restaurant with flavourful food and great teppanyaki entertainment. The chef's have a great sense of humor and involve everyone in the group throughout the meal. We went for a staff Christmas party which was a great idea because of the activity mixed with supper. Considering the quality of the meals, the prices are on par at... More

Went to ichiban on a Friday night with the hubby for a nice dinner, made a reservation for 8:30, did not get seated until around 8:50-9:00, which is okay because it seemed fairly busy. We waited in the lounge so that we could have a drink or two before dinner had started. No one came to ask us if we... More

I have eaten at the Ichi Ban since the early 1980's. In the past the food and service was much better than today. As great as my memories are of the Ichi Ban of the past I believe it's time to finally say the restaurant needs a serious Reno inside. I used to really enjoy going because it was a... More

Great Japanese steak place. The grill is a great way to watch the chiefs cook and perform their tricks. The food was excellent. Very fun and enjoyable time. Been eating at this place for over 30 years, they could do a little to up grade the decor.

Made a reservation here for 730 on a weeknight. I arrived a few minutes earlier than my group and the hostess refused to seat me until my entire party arrived. The restaurant was virtually empty. I had to ask if I could sit in the bar. In the bar (again, no other patrons) service was extremely slow. After not being... More

I went to Ichi Ban for a friend's anniversary. The menu is small and expensive. Any splitting of dishes or substitutions cost you extra money. My fiancé and I both had pop, and were planning to split an expensive meal (so we could try a bit of everything). They wanted to charge us $18 extra to split, I guess because... More
