for Over a Decade, Japanica Steakhouse & Sushi Bar has been among Tallahassee’s Favorite Japanese Restaurants






Ivy’s Kitchen


Steakhouse & Sushi Bar

At Japanica, three generations raised on foods with traditional Asian flavors have come together to blend their respective talents that have been refined both in Asia and America. Members of the Li Huang family, originally from a small fishing village on an island in Southeastern Asia, worked as chefs for several Asian restaurants in Chicago where they developed and enhanced their distinctive cooking styles. During this time, they also began their search for a place where they could serve their own food reflective of their unique backgrounds and experiences. In 2008, they moved to Tallahassee and opened Japanica Steakhouse & Sushi Bar in order to provide the Panhandle with a distinct taste of the East. Today, Japanica is a restaurant praised amongst locals as one of the finest Japanese and Asian cuisine establishments in the general vicinity. Whether the dining choice is the always-entertaining Hibachi, the sushi which has been described as the freshest in Tallahassee, or a one-of-a-kind, multi-course meal prepared after consultation with Chef Ivy, the family at Japanica provides a fresh take on foods of Far Eastern heritage alongside a relaxed, thoughtful dining atmosphere.

Care for a unique dining experience like no other in Tallahassee? In addition to providing an extensive menu of authentic Japanese meals, Japanica Steakhouse and Sushi Bar has a passion for providing multi-course meals catered to your exact tastes. Special dinners are available upon request and after prior consult with Chef Ivy. Owner and Head Chef of Japanica, Chef Ivy not only specializes in the distinctive cuisine of Fuzhou, her native city, but also T hai whole fish, spicy Szechuan styles, traditional Asian baked desserts (3 days notice required for birthday cakes), and many other inimitable tastes of the Southeastern Asiatic region. Ask for Ivy at any time during the course of your meal or contact Ivy at the restaurant at (850) 656-9888 to arrange a meal unlike any other in Tallahassee.
