Best Restaurants in West Omaha
We had a family dinner for four
here for my mother's birthday. I had the pecan salmon over jasmine white rice. Best salmon I have ever had, and I eat a lot of fish. My father's sea bass was amazing. Buttery, light, perfectly cooked and great presentation. My wife's chicken was good and overall would have been fantastic at another restaurant. However, in comparison to the other dishes is now labeled, good not great. The best dish of the night was the gumbo that my mother ordered. Absolutely the best gumbo I have ever tasted. Authentic, deep in flavor, real shrimp, real anduie sausage. Truly amazing night. Will recommend this place to anyone."

White cloth dining in and great
food, yet casual enough not to feel stuffy. Our waitress broke out our bill by couples without even asking, eliminating the hassle trying to figure our responsibility. The food is prepared deliciously and the presentation is beautiful."

This is one of the highest, or the
highest, rated restaurants in the Omaha area. It is deserving of this rating."

This was our first time to Wave
and we must say that the food was divine! My husband and I had the chicken lettuce wraps as an appetizer. I had the Thai Green Curry Chicken and he had the special of the day scallop dish. Both were wonderfully flavored and the portions were large. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. The food and the service were both great - and if the other dishes are anything like the two were tried, you cannot go wrong here."

Awesome food and great service by
Juan. The crab cakes are the best I've ever had and the salmon was delicious too."
Dined on 3/14/2014
Everything was outstanding. I was
kicking myself the next day that I had not taken a picture of my Seschwan Shrimp. It was amazing. The drinks and service were top-rate. The owner made a point to talk to us to see how everything was, which is always greatly appreciated. I have recommended your restaurant to so many people and every one agrees that there is a reason that you are rated # 1 !"

Special menu was great. The food
here is always supurb. Close to Marquee theater and great for before or after movie. This place is great all of the time."

Outstanding menu, reasonably
priced, great for a special occasion, great daily specials."

Food was great but service was a
little slow...It was New Years Eve and they were packed so we were fine with it."
Dined on 12/31/2013
We had the New Eve special and it
was So good. For some reason it was chilly in the resturant, about the time we received the main course the heat came on. That was the only compliant we had, even-my husband was cold. We for sure will be back, when we are in town again."
Dined on 12/31/2013
I am a regular customer of the
Wave Bistro because I can always be assured of excellent cuisine, friendly servers and management, and, like Cheers a place where they know your name. Hopefully, they will continue for a long time. It's a bargain, too, at the prices they charge for food and wine."
Dined on 12/31/2013
The food is is of the highest
quality and is beautifully prepared, plated and served. The asian fusion style delivers an impressive, memorable sensory experience."
Dined on 12/31/2013
We had a group of 7 - everyone
loved what they ordered. I had a Thai green curry shrimp dish that was outstanding - leftovers the next day were just as good."
Dined on 12/11/2013
Found on Yelp: in strip mall which
limits what owners can do with the space. That said, it is very engaging & not at all like the standard plastic set up one normally finds in such places. Food fantastic, wine selection good. One, fairly minor, complaint on service. Attitude & conduct of staff was really good. But didn't seem there was always clarity about who was doing what. Were greeted by someone who was doubling as a bus-girl Weren't sure if she actually realized we had a reservation. The one waiter was working our table & 3 or 4 others. So, owner helped out: but they were often working at cross-purposes which meant we had to clarify orders at times. I certainly recommend the place but, it would help if they cleared up communications."
Dined on 11/26/2013
Very enjoyable, Great Waitress,
food was very good as expected. Wine list could use a bit of growth but we enjoyed the pick that was suggested. We like the flair that this restaurant brings to the food. I recommend this place highly."
Dined on 11/15/2013
a group of six went. All ordered
something different and appetizers. Starters were good and everyone liked their meal. This isn't the first time i've been here and not once, has someone not liked what they ordered. Dessert was very good as well. (Creme brulee) Service was great and i strongly advised this place."
Dined on 11/8/2013
The food, ambiance, and wine list
were exceptional and a real surprise to us for that part of town. A hidden secret. What they lack is in the connection to "Open Table" reservation system. It did not work as far as sending an invitation out to someone else that you would like to join your party. They asked for email addresses and did not send the invitation out as expected. It created a real problem. Fix that problem and they make up that very important 10% to the overall score."
Dined on 10/21/2013
Knowledgeable waitstaff, food was
well prepared and well presented. We went with expectations for a good experience and left raving about the meal and service. I recommend this to anyone celebrating a special event, get together, or night out. We will be back!"

My husband and I recently dined at
the Wave Bistro. We had an excellent experience. We were dressed very casually, coming from our son't football game. While the setting is nice and a bit formal, we noticed that there was a wide variety of dress among the diners. We did not feel out of place. The food was fabulous! My dish Seafood Dynamite (or something like that) was superb -- flavorful and interesting. The crab cakes were really well done -- delicious. I would highly recommend the Wave Bistro -- a great find!"
Dined on 9/28/2013
I hadn't been to the Wave for a
while but brought some friends that haven't dined there before. The food was still excellent and everyone was pleased. Thanks again."
Dined on 9/25/2013
Great food, knowledgeable staff,
and a fun environment."
Dined on 9/20/2013
Wouldn't say it was a foodie kind
of restaurant but if you like Asian cuisine with Westernized flare it is an elegant dining room and the food is delicious. Never had a bad meal. The chicken noodle soup was subtlety divine. If you make a rese via OpenTable, make sure they do their end so you get your points. Once I didn't get my points."
Dined on 9/12/2013
We have loved this restaurant
since its opening. It is truly a gem -- service is attentive without being intrusive and the food is excellent. We're always recommending it to friends and acquaintances."
Dined on 8/30/2013
Wave was the best dining
experience we've had in recent memory. The food and service were absolutely outstanding!! We will be back."
Dined on 8/24/2013
I find it hard not to order the
duck in a nice restaurant - done right, I just love the flavor of duck. This was a leg and a breast. One slightly spicy, the other rich and creamy. It was wonderful switching back and forth on the plate. And finally, it passed my other big test - the side vegetables were done perfectly."
Dined on 8/20/2013
From the moment we stepped into
this restaurant and were faced by a portable cost rack, we knew we were in for a sub-par experience. This isn't a bad place, just mediocre. I can see no reason to seek it out, unless you lived in the neighborhood. A real throw-back to the 90's vibe."
Dined on 7/25/2013
I am most impressed with the
quality and preparation of the food. I tried three different appetizers and three different entrees among those ordered by our group and each one was faultless. I especially liked the duck prepared two ways, and the crab cakes, which were the best I have ever had. To top it off, the creme brûlée was served three ways also. The chocolate was not expected to be my favorite--but it was so good, I only wish I had more. The staff could not be more pleasant, unaffected and dedicated to you having a great meal. I hope to return soon."
Dined on 7/5/2013
The food selection is impressive,
as were the specials. My halibut was wonderful. My wife ordered Pad Thai, with a "3" hot sauce on a scale of 1-10, with 10 the hottest. The dinner provided was closer to an 8. I should have sent it back, but instead surrendered my delicous halibut in a trade with my wife. Bad news- the place is very very very loud. Forget meeting friends there and visiting- The ceilings are high and most all surfaces are hard, so the noise bounces around. I would not consider the restaurant for any business meal. Maybe if they change the decor and let me know I will go back. Again, awesome food, noise like sitting on Dodge Street."
Dined on 6/28/2013
A little off the beaten path but
well worth the short drive. The service was cordial and gracious, the staff all took a real interest in how we found the meal. The food was just all around excellent from the appetizer to the entrées to the dessert."
Dined on 6/8/2013
My husband and I went here
following TripAdvisor's suggestion. The food was excellent, the service quite good. Server was knowledgeable, non-intrusive, was brighter than the average bear with a good sense of humor. Simple but tasteful decor, ample parking. Lack of baffling in this high ceiling room made everyone's conversation available to all. I had a green curry tofu - super - and my husband had Duck Two Ways. He was quite satisfied. Would recommend it to whomever is in the area, worth traveling too, for we out-of-towners."
Dined on 6/6/2013
Everyone agreed this was an
excellent dinning experience. Great service, good selections, and the mixed drinks were outstanding. We are always looking for new resturants to go out wih friends. Besides a great dinning experience at a resonable price this is a social experience where we stretch the evening to enjoy great company and great dinning. I highly recommend this establishment."
Dined on 5/30/2013
Great service, great food,
immediately made a reservation for the next week, we have found our new favorite!!"

We found Wave Bistro on
TripAdvisors. We attended the Berkshire Hathaway meeting and were grateful to have a nice restaurant booked on the Friday night. Nice ambiance and table settings. Service was outstanding with great suggestions and she brought extras like lime and chili sauce based on what we said we liked. Started with the firecracker shrimp roll...excellent; mixed seafood green curry (she suggested changing to mixed seafood instead of just shrimp based on what I was debating between) and my husband had the short rib curry. The two meals complimented each other. Nice drink list and bartender made a Manhattan that wasn't on the list. The owner and the cook came out to talk to us. Nice. We enjoyed very much and will be back!"
Dined on 5/3/2013
Had the lettuce wraps for an
appetizer and the cashew salmon for dinner. Both were delicious. Also, the service was exceptional! I'll be back."
