If I could live at Ichiro, I would. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the owner Terry goes out of his way to make sure all the customers are taken care of and enjoying their meal. I go to Ichiro at least once a week but as soon as I marry rich I will make my husband take me for every meal for the rest of my life. The hibachi is delicious and the portions are a good size. When I die I want my ashes to be spread overtop their ginger sauce because I believe it will bring me closer to heaven.

We were a group of 8 people, including four children. We waited for half an hour before being served, and I use the term served minimally. the restaurant was silent: no interactions, no music, nothing. when we were finally served most of the orders were wrong, and this lasted through out even the hibachi serving. the chef was bland and did not interact with us; additionally he was cooking for two separate tables at once. there was barely any interaction or fun expressed in his demeanor. any actions , such as a toss of a knife, were performed in an obligatory manner, without any interaction with the children or smiles. at one point I had to say "sake? fun? interaction?" just to get a reaction from him. I was told to wait. the food for both tables were cooked between us: scallops cooked on the other grill were delivered to members of our party. Noodles cooked on our grill were delivered to members of the opposite table. not everyone received all food items- for example no one at my table received noodles. the entire experience was nothing but a disappointment. they took a picture of our group together celebrating my birthday, but I have no idea where the picture is- we weren't offered a copy. do yourself a favor and travel to Sumo in Ithaca, A
across from the mall. you won't be disappointed there: a little further away but well worth it for the entertainment and food.

Took my son and his family to Ichiro Japanese Restaurant, here in Geneva, NY. It had only been
open a week or so. My son chose it to try, as he's had hibachi style meals before. We had a reservation for 7 of us and were seated at a "U" shaped table with the hibachi grill in the middle.
Unfortunately, I have Celiac Disease and couldn't partake of the food cooked on the grill. However, they do have Gluten Free offerings from the kitchen. I enjoyed a teriyaki grilled
salmon that was delicious. Served with an appetizer of clear soup, a small house salad with a
delicious ginger dressing. The salmon was accompanied by some steamed vegetables and a
bowl of rice. Those enjoying the Hibachi grill had swordfish, steak, chicken, and pork. The
chef put on his show with the flipping of his spatula and fork and his cooking the large pile
of rice and vegetables, along with a small onion "volcano". Every ones food was delicious and
we had no complaints. It is a little pricey, but I feel well worth the expense. They surprised my
son with a deep fried ice cream. He said it was like a green tea ice cream in a tempura batter.
He ate it, so I assume it was good.
Will go here again soon. Great place to go as a family or with friends.
