We tried the unagi (eel) dish but it was not what we expected. The fish was tough (normally it should flake easily), did not itself lend to chopstick cutting, and did not taste good. The only good two items were the Asahi beer and the green tea ice cream. I will not be able to comment on the sushi or thr sashimi as we did not try them.

One of our favorite sushi spots in the city, very good with a very friendly staff. The food is very good and the omakase can be fabulous. Worth a try!! If you live UES it's the best.

The restaurant is utilitarian and was nearly empty when I arrived for an early dinner. It did fill up with mostly Japanese as I ate. Sushi was authentic, quickly prepared and of good quality. The venue was a bit pricey given the lack of ambiance, but it is New York City. Compared to prices at most sushi restaurants, the preparation was very fast and service was attentive. Worth going to for a solitary meal or one with a friend.

This was a very nice little restaurant. The food was good and the service was great. Everything that we had we liked. We are from out of town and found it through reviews on Yelp. If we are in the area again we would not hesitate to eat there.

We've been looking for good sushi in new neighborhood (use to live in midtown). Ichiro is the best sushi restaurant we have been to so far, and we have tried about 5 other places. The service is super fast, the miso soup/salad very good, and the sushi is very good and not that expensive. And, the atmosphere is very nice with modern furniture and dim lighting. All in all, we think this will be our neighborhood sushi place!

Nice little sushi spot if you're ever on the Upper East Side...the construction on 2nd Ave may be a bit of a pain...but the food here will not disappoint. Decent sized pieces and large specialty rolls will have you coming back for more.

We were looking for a Sushi resto on a Monday night, and apparently many NYC Japanese restaurants are closed on Mondays, so we decided to try this one out. They have an amazing selection of rolls, and we tried quite a few of them and it did not dissapoint. I deffinitely recommend this place to all the suhi lovers out there.

Ichiro is a neighborhood location that is always a favorite in my family. The fish is very fresh and the cooked dishes, as opposed to raw preparations, are always perfectly cooked. They have great beef, chicken and vegetarian dishes as well. Over the years we have tried most things, however I am partial to the green salad and the hibachi style Chilean seabass. Fried banana is always great with the complementary fruit for dessert. The tea they offer is a green tea with toasted rice. Absolutely hits the spot. Combine that with the friendly and knowledgeable staff and it makes for a wonderful evening.

This was our first time here and, overall, it was a good experience. The service was attentive and excellent. My friend ordered one of their bento box dinners which looked really good and offered a lot of variety. I didn't order it because 2 main items had shellfish to which I'm allergic. I later asked about substitutions and now know that they will substitute something else for the shellfish items. This is good and I will probably return to try this dish with my choice of a main course item. I had the beef negamaki which was a bit greasy and too much of one thing. The food is presented nicely and we had no complaints. I was just sorry I didn't get "what she was having."

Ichiro has some pretty good sushi and sashimi. It's a pretty good neighborhood place. Service was good. If you're looking for typical sushi like spicy tuna roll, California roll, unagi and tamago, the sushi is fresh and flavorful. While not a real standout, it was good place for dinner without having to wait or wonder if we would be able to get in.
