Diner Reviews
  • "Chose this restaurant based on reviews on the internet. Sushi was fresh, well-prepared and well-presented. Some the special rolls were unique and different from other sushi places. Not much atmosphere but who cares when the food is great. Unfortunately, the outdoor scenery is ruined by the subway construction out front. Nice list of sake. The waitress helped out with some of our roll selection and did a bang up job."

  • "the sushi is always fresh and tasty. Great selection of unusual rolls, although some are overdone and are stuffed with so many ingredients that you can't taste any. All in all, a great sushi restaurant."

  • "For the most part the food was good but nothing special. The udon how ever was surprisingly awesome. I feel this place needs a second visit to further explore the menu as there may be more surprises like that. Service was the standard get you in and out quick no coursing just bring dishes out as soon as the chef finishes them that you would expect. "

  • "Glad we made a reservation! The place was packed at 8pm on a Friday evening -- families with kids, couples on a date, large groups, many different kinds of folks. Service was efficient, although the shrimp hibachi bento took much longer than everything else. But our party was happy with all the dishes we ordered. Sushi was fresh, portions were good-sized, tables are close together but not suffocatingly so."

  • "My friends and I were craving sushi and since I'm new to the area, thought we would try a neighborhood restaurant. Ichiro did not let us down. I was disappointed they did not have a full bar but was pleasantly surprised by their beer/wine prices and sake selection. The food was fantastic - very fresh with typical sushi offerings and unique speciality rolls. Service was great; I'm looking forward to returning."

  • "With picky kids, eating out is not always an easy option, but Ichiro has something for everyone. Our second time for lunch here and still our fav. We get more than enough food and the lunch specials are worth it here."

  • "Ichiro hit the spot after a log day, but I wouldn't make a special trip to return. Far better place to eat. Don't make the mistake of ordering the duck wrap starter."

  • "This place has changed ownership too many times and unfortunately it is obvious. Spicy tuna roll was more mayo than fish...not what I remember from my UES days. Sad"
    Dined on 5/16/2013
  • "The sushi and sashimi were quite fresh and portions were satisfying (not the paper thin slices you get from fancy sushi places). Service was attentive but not over bearing. Menu selection was good except dessert selections were a bit lacking. 2 ppl dinner at 60 bucks inclusive of tip...cant beat that."

  • "We love the experience every time we go. The Bento boxes are a great deal."

  • "The raw fish here is better than average for this type of place, which fits above discount sushi but below home-away-from-home spot for traveling Tokyo businessmen. And the service was very nice."

  • "I was relieved to find a reservation for a large group of 8 people on a Saturday night here. I liked that we had no wait upon arrival. My friend go the salmon teriyaki and enjoyed her meal. I had the lobster roll which was fine. We stayed for a few hours and had a lovely time as a group. Thanks to Ichiro for letting us stay so long without pressure, and for giving us individual checks."

  • "Ichiro takes being the neighborhood sushi spot to a new level. Many places service the same high quality fresh fish but the presentation is what really makes the difference at Ichiro. The happy hour specials are great too."

  • "Frat bros getting a rush out of doing sake bombs,, kids running around, strollers, feels like a cross between Murray Hill and the 'burbs. The sushi was fresh. Staff was not attentive. Watch out, the door is drafty and seats nearby get really cold when people open it"
    Dined on 2/28/2013
  • "Food was presented in an incredibly beautiful, artistic, photo-worthy manner. Service rapid and pleasant. Only drawback is level of the recorded music. Much too loud for such a small venue. There are only a few tables that are not located directly under or very near the loudspeakers."

  • "Good variety to choose from. Sashimi, sushi very good. Priced fair. Hibachi scallops excellent."

  • "Went two times this past week: one time on a Saturday for lunch, and one time for a weeknight dinner. The lunch was fantastic --- the service was great, food was great, everything was perfect. However, when we went for dinner, the place was packed and the service was terrible. Our water was filled once in the whole time we were seated!"

  • "My fiancé and I come here almost every Tuesday. The fish is fresh, the service excellent and fast. We love this place so much that I actually feel I owe it to them to make my first review."

  • "Four of us dined early and had a wonderful meal and experience. The appetizers and sushi were delicious. Construction of the 2nd Ave. subway currently blocks the entrance to the restaurant from the street - - don't let that stop you from trying this restaurant!"

  • "Stopped by for lunch on a Saturday afternoon, and the restaurant was empty so I had my choice of tables. I ordered 2 rolls, which were pretty good. While I waited for my order, the restaurant did start to fill up quickly. Will go back again, as the staff were very friendly and the food was good."

  • "The food was good enough. The servers were decent, at least as far as the basics were concerned. What I take issue with is increasing the price of my check when my credit card was swiped. The total of our bill (we had a voucher) was $16.05. When my credit card receipt arrived, it had been jacked up to $16.95. Ok, I thought, I'll just fill it in for the total of $26.00 that I had intended to leave anyway, and they can work it out among themselves. Then I checked my bank account and saw that AGAIN they had jacked up the price, charging my credit card for $26.95. It is $1.85, but the idea that these people are ripping off customers angers me. Yes, I came in with a voucher, but don't offer deals if you don't plan to honor them!"

  • "appetizers are okay, but as far as Sushi is concerned, I never recommend this place to those who know the "real sushi". It is really gross, I am afraid to mention that."

  • "Excellent food-reasonably priced-the Bento boxes are a great deal."

  • "Came here for the first time in awhile with a Living Social voucher, we used to just frequent for the lunch special. We ordered the sushi and sashimi dinner for two that comes with 2 chefs rolls and it came out on a ship! A little ridiculous, but those around us found it fun and so did my husband. The best part was the fish was fresh, creatively displayed, and rivaled some of the over the top and overpriced joints we have been to. We'll be back!"
