A word from Wasabi Sushi & Lounge
Wasabi Sushi & Lounge brings a sophisticated, modern take on traditional Japanese food to the greater Milwaukee area. We believe happiness can come from life's simple pleasures, like the complete satisfaction caused by enjoying inspired, flavorful cuisine. Our chefs give artistic performances with their mastery of sushi preparation, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients - all presented beautifully on the plate. We aim to share the rich culture of Japan & the unique intricacies of sushi with our diners, but with contemporary twists to keep it interesting.
Wasabi is the 1st Wisconsin-based restaurant created by Brian Park, who originally established himself as a successful restaurateur of multiple sushi/Asian-Fusion hot spots in Chicago. Wasabi quickly secured its spot as the premier sushi destination in Brookfield, attracting diners from all over S.E.

    I went to Wasabi for lunch and it's a solid choice for sushi. The service was excellent. While the classic maki rolls were consistent, I'm not sure that I would order the 2 signature rolls that I ordered again (Badger & Dragon). However, if I am in the area again, I would consider going back.

  • Birthday Lunch...Wish I'd Picked a Different Place

    This was a birthday lunch for two of my co-workers. I'd reserved a table for 10 and said in the note to the restaurant that there may be more. We had exactly 10 seats and couldn't have seated more in our party. The server was not helpful in making selections. Quite a few of the attendees had never had sushi before. The service was very minimal...and we were still charged a 18% gratuity. I expect more for that much service charge. Then when we were trying to cash-out to get back to work, only our server could (was allowed to?) to process our tabs: and he was VERY slow. Worse yet I had told him very discreetly to put one of the birthday guest's tab on mine. He messed that up and then rather loudly discussed the issue with me at the table. I was not paying for both birthday people, just the one, and then everyone knew that. I was embarrassed. All-in-all the folks who like sushi liked the food and will probably be back. I, however, will not.

    We ordered several sushi rolls and they tasted like they were purchased from a gas/convenience store. Not fresh. Warm. Bland. Also, we asked a couple of times if the Air Conditioning was working and we were told it was. However, it was hot/thick in the back portion of the dining area. This meal was somewhat of a let-down. We've had nice food/experiences there in the past, but last weekend was bleh. Not in a hurry to go back. We'll probably head downtown next time.

    I have dined at Wasabi many times and have always enjoyed the food. I was very disappointed in the food that you had at the buffet on Easter Sunday. It all taste the same and didn't feel like the normal quality that you have been know for. I thought that the food was not worth half of what we paid for it. Our waitress was very pleasant.

    The sushi & sashimi are always very fresh, and beautifully presented. Non-sushi lovers have many options to choose from. I haven't found any other place that offers fresh ground wasabi rather than just having wasabi paste served on with the sushi - what a treat.

    Very good sushi and presentation of sushi. We got a sushi roll that came on fire. Very cool! We also got the Chicago roll which was amazing! The only thing we didn't love (It was just ok.) is the standard spicy tuna roll. It was very spicy and had onion in it. I've had better, but everything else was stellar including the service!

    My wife and I made a quick reservation with opentable and walked right in. The restaurant was busy but we were seated immediately. My wife ordered the sea bass and I ordered the spicy sushi combination. The food was excellent. My wife never tried sushiand was very reluctant to try mine. She did and loved it. The house sake was very good and so were the specialty drinks. I had the wasabi mai tai...very good...my wife had a kinky geisha and loved. Great service as always and we will continue to go back.

    I took my wife and children here for my wife's birthday. The waitress was extremely friendly and efficient. She apologized for taking a little bit to get our check since they were swamped with customers that night. She asked for what occasion we were out for and even brought out complimentary ice cream for the birthday girl and our group to help celebrate. The food is unbelievable and there are lots of roll selections to choose from. Delicious! Looking forward to our next of many visits here.

    I was just there for Valentine's day 2014 and it was easily the best sushi I've ever had. I've had sushi around Milwaukee and a few times in Chicago and I have to say this was this best. Everything was amazingly fresh and delicious and affordable. I saw they do half off on Monday's and I'll definitely be back for that. Their maki rolls were awesome and their signature dishes were even better.

    We received an email offering us a free Valentines Roll if we made reservations in advance. A sushi roll for free was a nice incentive. When we were seated and placed our order we indicated our relationship to the special...and even offered the confirmation email that referenced the free roll. The waitress spoke with "Management" and indicated that this special was reserved only for Dinner Reservations. This was not indicated on the promotion email nor the confirmation...nor the poster in the bathroom highlighting the special. Then we were told it wasn't available. They gave us coupon 10% off the next visit as though it were a gift...and as we were leaving noticed a stack of the coupons available for anyone who walked in. Terrible!

    The spider maki rolls were outstanding, the California rolls were great and the bulgogi my husband got was excellent. I had the yaki nikku lunch box. The bento box came with a ton of food, a half CA roll, veg fried rice (the only thing that wasn't that great), a salad with ginger dressing (better than any I've had at other places), 4 bite sized pieces of spicy, sweet and sour chicken and then the shaved rib-eye with veggies for only $10. I would for sure go back and maybe try more of their rolls.Everything seemed very clean.

    We were there for their Thanksgiving buffet. We thought it would be special, and had heard nice things about their food (some people saying it's the best in the Milwaukee area... which is far from true). They did have a good selection, in terms of variety, but the quality wasn't anything special. It wasn't bad, just average. Not worth what they charge, and I doubt I'll be back. As for service, 2 of the people in our party couldn't make it, and despite there being about half the tables available (the whole time we were there) we got the impression that the gal at the desk was displeased with us, almost as though we were blocking paying customers. :P Again, it was maybe average for what I'd expect at a buffet.

    I frequent Wasabi each time I am in Brookfield. This visit was a bit towards closing time. The Caterpillar was at best average, simply tasted bland. My three colleagues, who also make a point to come here often, found there food only par. From Miso soup, sashimi eel, to the hand rolls. I will give the restaurant one try next time I am in town, and arrive earlier to hopefully taste a noticeable difference.

    First time to Wasabi after trying Fujiyama and Kyoto (both of which were good). We expected about the same level of food since all 3 seem to be considered the best sushi in Milwaukee. Wasabi completely blew away the other two. The sushi tasted fresher and the specialty rolls were more creative and complex. The Oh My God roll was a favorite! The Dragon & Red Snapper roll w/ spicy crab (special that night) were also great. We finished with a California roll that was too lemony for me, but it was ok. The prices here were noticeably higher than the competition but for a special night out it was definitely worth it. My husband is in love with the real wasabi served here - so much better than the usual colored horseradish paste!
