    Our server was disappointing. Rarely came to the table to check on things. We had to ask one of the food runners to get our server to be able to order a drink. I would not recommend this place, solely based on the poor service.

    Two of us out for a night of celebration -- ordered the Omakase for 1, a veggie, and 2 rolls for dinner. Absolutely delightful! The chefs and staff treated us to some gorgeous fresh chutoro, a local salmon cut to show the beautiful ombre from belly to back, special aged soy sauce, and a fresh local halibut with ponzu. Although it's a standard menu item, props to the black cod roll with its subtle sweetness and complexity. A fabulous meal.

    ICHIBAN. Forget what you hear about other top end sushi restaurants in seattle. This is the best. Chef Taichi js a master and every piece of the omakase is special and amazing. The entire staff is wonderful so plan for an unforgettable evening.

    Significantly lower quality fish than when I visited last pre-pandemic. We were really disappointed in the fish selection as well as how it was cut. Imagine paper thin fish over communist rations of rice but the meal costs almost $1000 for four people. Oh also the soy sauce was empty and the karage was soggy. Service meh.

    The best sushi around! Fresh fish skillfully prepared. Our server was great! I had the three course menu. The mustard greens with tuna was yummy. I chose the sushi combo for my main meal. Since I’m not a huge fan of ebi or octopus, I’ll probably just order a la carte next time. My only complaint is the desserts. I didn’t think they were of the same quality as the rest of the meal. Maybe offer a chocolate plate for people who want just a little something sweet?

    We woke up this morning and once again—probably the fifth time—mentioned how amazingly good the sashimi and the rest of the food was! I’ve had sashimi in Japan at some very high restaurants and this would be duplicatable to that! You know when you don’t even need soy and wasabi…Staff was great too!

    We had a goodbye gathering for a friend who is leaving town. Our server Edward was attentive, friendly and professional, giving us plenty space yet keeping an eye on us, something actually is rare these days. The food was incredible, from the oysters to rolls to desserts, everything was superior. The ambience is the best for Seattle area sushi restaurants in my opinion, and we were all really glad we came here.

    Last time I tried the Omakase it was so good that we ask the chef for the special menu. This time I ordered the 5 course meal everything except the cod was average. The 7 piece sushi was dry and not fresh.

    We came for my boyfriend’s birthday and we were extremely happy with the food, service and overall experience! We got the bean salad and two kinds of sushi! Everything was super tasty! My boyfriend was surprised by the selection of sake and had two glasses! I had the lychee martini (2) and it didn’t disappoint. I spent 140 which I thought was reasonable for a fancy night out.
