Diner Reviews
  • "Pay attention: this is not another all-u-can-eat mediocre sushi joint. This is a pay-more, get-a-whole-lot-more, top notch quality restaurant. I love that their menu includes both traditional sushi (which is perfectly fresh, and boasts an impressive selection), as well as "new style" dishes that are creative, delicious, and gorgeously presented. And a nice side-benefit of this adventuresome menu is: they actually offer stunning desserts as well. None of this "green tea ice cream" nonsense; they offer a ginger creme brule that is out of this world."

  • "great food, but service was a little stand offish and was not at all wanting to engage us. also was a little surprized that there is no wine by the litre and had to order buy the bottle got a little pricey as we ordered 3 for our group of six."

  • "Party of six. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable atmosphere, had table upstairs where we could watch sushi chefs at work. All 10 dishes ordered were great, especially the "Bob Marley" Will be back! It was a great sushi dining experience for group to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "The food was delicious and I would definitely go back for that but the service could have been a little quicker. The server asked if we needed more time in which we politely said a couple more minutes, but he did not come back till about 15 minutes later. The server was nice and all but wasn't as quick as I would like."

  • "A power failure took out the lights & air conditioning moments after we were seated. We dined by candlelight & they cook with gas so the meal was unaffected. Food was quite good, if a tad difficult to see. However, once our order was taken, we never saw the server again - until it was time to deliver the bill. No one offered a second drink or refilled our water, except for delivery of food, we were ignored & has to flag down someone to ask for another drink & some wasabi & ginger to accompany our food. When the server made her reappearance with the bill, it was to inform us that they were closing the kitchen. The food was still quite good, but it was really lousy service considering the bill was over $100 for just two people!"

  • "Wasabi on Broadway has always been one of the (if not THE) best sushi restaurants in the city - and Wasabisabi's menu is just as good, in a more casual atmosphere. The sushi was top notch, there are some cool new "fusion" dishes - and the service was polite and friendly as usual. We'll definitely be back. Highly recommended! A+"

  • "This was our first time at sushi restaurant. Our server was very helpful explaining the menu options to us. We ordered and shared an appetizer and ordered three main dishes. This was a good amount for the two of us. We were seated in the back room and were the only ones there when we first arrived. But as it filled up it got quite noisy. The main area may have been a little quieter since it has the higher ceiling. We would definitely go back since food and price was excellent."

  • "We are never disappointed with the excellent quality and variety of the sushi.....distinctly tasty and artfully beautiful...always a treat to the palate and the eye. Ambience is comfortable and fun; place is buzzing with activity and service is friendly and knowledgable."

  • "Again, Wasabisabi delivers great food and service. The sushi is fresh, fresh, fresh and the menu continues to delight us with its changing items that are always tasty and beautiful to the eye. Our only reservation ever is the cost; we go on special occasions as the Sake prices (while delicious) are super pricey and when coupled with food it is difficult to leave without a $200 tab for two."

  • "Have dined here several times, always impressed with the quality and presentation of the dishes. Usually service is excellent especially during busy times, however this most recent visit the service was just was I would consider fair, at best. Otherwise the food was great as usual. Will be back again!"

  • "My girlfriend and I went there the other night food was good. But ordered wine and it came in a plastic bottle. I mean really? Who serves wine in plastic bottle I paid $38 for a bottle wine and it came in a plastic bottle and is wasn't very good. Don't order the crappy plastic bottle wine. Bad"

  • "Pro's: - Innovative dishes - Grilled sable fish was stellar - Friendly service Con's - Has to be the most expensive sushi in Winnipeg - If you're going to charge top dollar, make sure that your menus aren't falling apart. That might be expected in a lesser restaurant, but it reflects poorly on a better restaurant. - The special roll of the night was delicious but exceptionally expensive, and it fell apart as we ate it."

  • "The atmosphere was incredibly noisy to the point we couldn't even have a conversation at our table. The service was by far the worst I have ever had at Wasabi, server was barely there and was quite inattentive. As for food, it left me disappointed for the price considering I have been many times before. The food was inconsistent I quality in comparison to past visits. I waited 20 minutes for my mango prawns while the rest of my table was eating their maki rolls. When they came, the server just said sorry and didn't even attempt to discount our bill. We won't be back."

  • "presentation of the food was nice but was extremely over-priced. A 10 dollar roll there is 5.5o any where else."

  • "Great food but service was extremely slow. Our waiter was slow and food service slow."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "Excellent Japanese food, don't bother with the menu, ask the chef to provide a meal, and, as you eat, tell your server one course or two before you think you are full. Ambience is good, but it can be noisy. Plenty of free parking: restaurant does not look like much from the outside. Booking early a good idea, ask for a seat near the kitchen to see the chef in action or upstairs for a cosy, romantic dinner. Wine list is good but expensive."

  • "Service OK. Waitress didn't seem too keen on having us do Sake Bombs. She gave us stink eye. Otherwise food was pretty good. Great atmosphere. Good overall."

  • "Helpful server when choosing items for sharing. Unhappily,out of our group of 8, two who chose a meal instead of sharing the sushi were left waiting until the last of the rolls were served to the rest of us. All the food was excellent. Very attentive to allergy concerns."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "We went to Wasabisabi based on recommendation from a friend. The food was great and the service was also very good except that the server wasnt really well versed in what pairings went together and which sushi a novice could enjoy. The food was presented well and in a timely manner with very little delay between dishes. I found the cost to be a little exorbitant for the amount that you received (perhaps $5 per scallop isnt exorbitant but what do I know), the room was dark to the point that it was difficult to read the menu. In the end I was wondering what all the fuss was about."
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "Food was decent but pricey for the quality and quantity that you receive. Had New Style Sashimi assorted and ended up getting tuna and salmon anyways. Hot Sake wasn't hot but luke warm the 1st time around, had to ask the waitress to make it hot for the next round. Mahalo roll was expensive and okay but I wouldn't recommend, 8 pieces for $22 so not worth it. Chocolate bling for dessert was too sweet and it has changed since the last time I had it there. It has a gooey super sweet white chocolate inside just under the hard chocolate shell and then the dark chocolate ganache underneath. Waitress brought the bill and took my friend's coffee cup away without asking if she wanted another cup. We had to ask for her another cup of coffee."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "We were seated at a table that was so dark that we could barely read the menu. Had to use the light from a cell phone. Missed the cup when pouring tea; the server had to mop up twice. More help in ordering from the menu would have helped."

  • "Our family ate at Wasabisabi for a birthday celebration. We arrived a bit early and our table was ready. Our server was prompt and well timed. The Mango Prawns are great! Sushi is of course great for sharing and all was of great quality and flavour. The sushi pizza was smaller than expected and not really great for sharing with 6 people. All in all we enjoyed our meal and would return again."
    Dined on 8/18/2013
  • "Dinner at Wasabi Sabi was delicious, as it always is there. My husband and I tried Sake and the recommendation made by our server was excellent. We were a bit reluctant to try Sake as we had both tried it once before and found it very bitter and not the least bit enjoyable. Glad we stepped out of our comfort zone to try it again! Will go to Wasabi again and again!"

  • "My husband and I went on the Saturday night of the August long weekend. The restaurant was not overly busy, but just right. Our very attentive server helped us pick out a very good appetizer (Sushi Tortilla), assortment of entrées, drinks, wine and dessert as we were not sure if we would order too much or too little. I have to admit the flavours in all of our choices were amazing. Each piece was a flavour sensation! I started the whole process with a Lemongrass Mojito which was delicious and finished with the Chocolate Truffles which were amazing. My husband enjoyed the Chocolate Bling desert which was to-die-for. Our entire experience was positive, a little bit pricey, but worth it for a splurge!"

  • "Three of us ordered Sunomono salad . The noodles were warm and there was very llittle in the way of sauce so that it just tasted like mush. We complained to our waiter but it would have been nice if it had been removed from our bill as none of us finished our portions as it tasted so poorly."
