    Enjoyed dinner on the screened in porch with some friends. Food was generally good - a couple of dishes lacked flavour but Red Velvet really great vegetarian selection. Shrimp and mango tasty too. Service was a little uneven - some things came quickly and others took more time than would be expected.

    It was too beautiful to sit inside so we sat in the enclosed patio, enjoying both the street life (which happily was not too close for comfort) and the relaxing greenery the restaurant has so carefully nurtured. What a perfect way to begin a summer lunch in Winnipeg. The service was pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and the wine. And what food it was!! The oysters to start were plump and flavourful. The Ocean View and Green Spider sushi was amazing. The special of the day - Team Alex - was the perfect way to finish a delightful lunch, combining sweet and succulent flavours. What a great lunch - very pleasant and definitely to be repeated ... many times.

    This Winnipeg iconic sushi restaurant has definitely lived up to the expectation. The food is beyond amazing. The irony is that after picking up a former Winnipeger who now lives in Vancouver, from the airport, we headed directly to Wasabi as she cannot find a sushi equivalent in Vancouver! She immediately ordered the Volcano roll & deep fried sweet chili prawns to start. It did not disappoint. We had a wonderful evening on the outdoor patio. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We are craving to return! Five star sushi.

    I recently took a close and long-time friend for an early dinner to celebrate (belatedly) her birthday and we had a wonderful time. The food was excellent (neither of us were "crazy" about one of our choices, but that was personal taste, not a fault of the food at all) and the service superb, the precise blend of attention and privacy we always hope for. I had mentioned my friend's birthday, but only in passing and so she and I were both very pleasantly surprised when the server appeared with a lovely dish of ice cream to celebrate. And who knew that black sesame seed ice cream is delectable?! I will be back soon, this time to treat my research assistant for her hard work over the course of the year ...

    First time visting Wasabi on Broadway. Atmosphere and decor is nice, food was great albiet on the pricey side. Highly recommend the Green Hornet specialty roll. If it was not for the price I would rank Wasabi on Broadway as my new favorite Sushi restaurant in Winnipeg.

    Everything was great. Creative rolls, good service, great tasting food. The only negative was that we ordered the Salmon Carpaccio appetizer for $18 but it was just 8 pieces of thinly sliced sashimi with a sauce drizzled on top; we were both a bit disappointed with the actual amount of food. Be prepared for the bill - with a simple glass of wine each and being full when we left it came to $180 after tax and tip for two people. Without the wine and Salmon Carpaccio (which I wouldn't order again due to the value for $) we could have gotten away with $140. I would say that unless you are a true sushi connoisseur there are less expensive options that will be just as satisfying.

    Wonderful meal, beautifully presented, flavours amazing. Great seating options, beautiful area, friendly staff - I love this place. I've been there with my children, on a romantic date night, and on a night out with friends and for each situation, the choices around seating and menu items were entirely appropriate. There are several delicious non-sushi items and among the sushi menu, there are several vegetarian and cooked fish options - definitely something for everyone. I recommend this place to everyone I know.

The food is always expertly prepared and presented, service is exceptional and i always feel comfortable going there, even on my own. I have moved out of Winnipeg but still intend on going there when I come into town. Thumbs up!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/6/2013
    The food was very good but the noise level in the upstairs traditional dining area was incredibly loud and the wait for our food was pretty long. I also found the service to be pretty mediocre even though patrons are paying a lot of money to eat there. I feel the service needs to be more attentive and quicker (at least the server should update the table if the kitchen is behind or food will be later then usual). My table of 5 went on a saturday night so it was very busy and fully booked but that should be no excuse for incredibly slow service (perhaps have more staff booked on weekends or busy nights?). I probably would only go back for a friend/family members special occasion but generally speaking the menu is a bit too expensive.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/23/2013
    We ordered 2 dishes (butterfish which was very tasty. And tortilla pizza which was also good ). Two sushi rolls a) new style and b) rainbow sushi. Each roll cost $15. Quality was average but definitely I was disappointed given that I heard "wasibi" served fresh fish and better quality henece it was more $$ than over places. If it was priced ~$7-8 per roll then yes maybe I would consider going back but with the 2 dishes plus 2 sushi it cost us $67! For that price I've had better experience some here else where it made me go "wow" after eating a roll because the sashimi was very fresh (on grant. Yujiro sushi) And trust me... There is a difference. Service and atmosphere was great! No complaints about that. Would I go back?? Probably not.

    This is one of may favourite sushi restaurants in the city and only one of two that I would ever consider doing the "Omakase". The service prompt, friendly, and attentive. The dining experience was phenomenal, the range of flavours and textures in each of the courses was exciting. The Omakase is an indulgence that everyone who enjoys the craft of sushi and the art of food needs to include in their culinary repertoire.

    We have been fans of the Wasabi group of restaurants for years. We stopped by the Broadway place on Saturday night at 7 pm. The place was really empty... and tired looking. They appear to not have repainted or done any updates for 10 years! Paint chipped, chairs squeaky... just tired looking. The food as always was great, expensive but worth it. But the vibe was missing...where are all the people? No doubt many have decamped to the lovely Wasabi Sabi in the suburbs (which is always buzzing and delightfully decorated). It was also the Winnipeg Dines week and so the masses may have been off in search of $36 meals...but Wasabi on Broadway still has a lot to offer - just need to wake the old girl up a bit!

    We were a group of 9. They put us upstairs in a very dark and overheated room. It was hard to read the menu (I am 33 btw). Other than that the food is excellent, however I received my teryaki beef after everybody was finished their supper because"my meal takes longer to cook" according to the server!!!! I was not impressed by the serice.
