Diner Reviews
  • "Can't speak to the whole menu but do not come here if you're looking for sushi. They actually preroll some of their sushi rolls which you can tell from the consistency of the rice. Maybe the hot dishes are better and there's a reason sushi isn't featured in the name of the restaurant."

  • "I was looking for a spot for a quiet date with my wife on an early Saturday afternoon; had the restaurant to ourselves. The staff was extremely attentive even then, and the manager spent a lot of time explaining the concept and growth of the business (which we were interested in hearing). Excellent maki roll and Korean BBQ dish. Very light cheesecake dessert big enough for two. We'll be back when it's busier!"

  • "There's a large, varied menu. Just discovered the outdoor patio - one of our favorite summer venues. Only 2 visits so far. We recommend the Panang Thai curry, tuna poke, Hong Kong calamari and Tom Yum soup. Crab Rangoon was just ok. Breakfast blend tea was over-steeped. Also, an Asian restaurant should have Oolong or Jasmine tea. Hence, the 4 stars. However, looking forward to the next visit."

  • "We wanted some late night (for a weekday) sushi and this place hit the spot. Everything else was closed in the area and were glad, because we ended up here! Our server was sweet and knowledgable when it came to the menu. We'll be back to this location!"

  • "They have a large selection of Sushi and other thai/japanese dishes. Almost too many. We ordered the Mexican roll appetizer, it was excellent. We ordered Panang Curry chicken and Tofu chow fun for dinner, we have had these dishes before and had expectations of what these dishes should taste like. They were not nearly as flavorful as we had hoped (spicy but bland, if that makes sense). They were both good, but not great. We decided next time we'd order their specialties and hope to experience new dishes to enjoy. We did say something to mgt about the lack of flavor of the dishes and they offered us free dessert, literally ONE free dessert, we took it to go since we needed to pickup our son and didn't have time to eat it then. That was odd..."

  • "The food was excellent with good portion sizes. The spicy calamari appetizer was excellent and huge. Once again Ben was our server and once again he was terriffic. His help with drink choices and patience with our endless questions regarding entrees was very helpful. Thanks Ben for another great dining experience."

  • "Even though building was very noisy we enjoyed our food very much. Waitress was too hurried and we felt we were rushed too much when we wanted to have good conversations with friends. We had dinner but we prefer lunch more when it is less crowded. Lunch personnel appears to be more friendly. "

  • "We had dinner there. It was not too bad, but the fried items ( tempura , softshell crab ) that were served as part of a sushi dish was cold. The appetizers were ok."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was very delicious but quite over priced for sushi especially when they don't have a lot of fresh, raw fish options. The lunch specials are a decent value though. We were very annoyed by the staff who kept clearing away our dishes that we were not done with yet and they didn't even ask. Our waiter also did not explain the menu at all or point out the lunch specials menu until we had already picked other dishes so that was annoying. We probably will not go back as we have another local sushi place that is much better overall. We only went since there was a Groupon and we wanted to try it. "

  • "We usually go to the one in St Charles. This one is bigger and roomier. You don't feel like you are on top of each other. Our service has been better at the St Charles location. Our waiter was not very good, but the manager was constantly at our table assisting and he was very pleasant and made our experience better."

  • "Was able to reserve a table for Mother's Day and got a table outside on a beautiful day. Service was friendly and quite good for the busiest restaurant day of the year. They did forget one of our appetizers, but they apologized profusely and promptly removed it from the bill when asked, then brought us a delicious banana ice cream dessert for Mom, free of charge. The manager (or owner) stopped by the table and wrapped up our left overs herself. Sushi and wok dishes are excellent and the drunken ginger ales are great. Great experience and great service, especially for the busiest restaurant day of the year."

  • "All the food came out at once when we asked to have the food to be shared as family style. We felt rushed, as soon as we ate our last bite the plate was whisked away. However the we had to ask for more drinks as if they did not want our group to stay any longer then necessary. The check came out with the desert. "

  • "Went 1st time with friends and fell in love with the sushi. St. Charles sushi and the other sushi was with lightly pan fried sea bass. Both great. Had the Pad Thai with scallops for main entrée. It was amazing. Also, best dirty martini with blue cheese olives around. Went back for bday dinner 3 weeks later, brought daughters to try sushi for 1st time, they loved it! Just as great!"

  • "This was our first time at Wok N' Fire, but there will certainly be many more! It was myself, wife and two kids (11 and 9). We all said it was one of the best overall meals we have ever had! The appetizers, sushi and entrees were outstanding! Service was fast, friendly and not pushy at all. Highly recommend the Pho, Kung pao chicken, St Charles roll and Teriyaki steak. Was far and away the best Asian food experience we have ever had!"

  • "I would consider myself a sushi junkie, and this place was the ultimate fix, but for a price. Our waiter, Gaston, was energetic, friendly and knowledgeable. My only let down was the environment. It was busy and noise was high. We were so close to other tables we could hear their conversations, which was rather distracting, but once our food arrived, it was bliss."

  • "The ethnically diverse menu manages to stay true to a half dozen different Asian cuisines and offers excellent tastes of all of them. The staff is excellent, our wait staff has been friendly, attentive and knowledgeable each visit. The only small short coming is a limited sake selection and no corresponding variations from other Asian countries such as soju, however what they do have is quite good at reasonable prices."

  • "We went to Wok & Fire with our friends before going to the symphony. The ambiance was very nice and it was not too loud, we were able to converse and enjoy our food. The appetizer, entrees and dessert were all excellent and we loved the ginger ale, it was delicious. The waitress was very helpful and explained everything well. She was attentive but not annoyingly so. The food presentation was great. The bar was hopping by the time we left, it is a fun place. Love all of the lit up lanterns hanging from the ceiling. We will definitely go back, the food was great."

Our group never really branched out more than the California/Philly rolls and we ended the night with a tempura eel!!! Will be going back with other friends soon to share what we've now learned. So much fun! Great value, too......"

  • "Nice decor. Good place to enjoy cocktails and unwind. The sushi and sashimi were fresh but nothing extraordinary. The asian food could be had elsewhere for bigger portions and better flavoring at significantly less price. Service was nothing extraordinary...kind of disappointing considering the hype and the very hip website. Online reservation ask what special occasion. It was my daughter's birthday but there was absolutely no acknowledgement from anybody in the staff!!! Little gesture for a 14 year old makes a whole world of difference and cost nothing...why bother asking if you are not going to do anything. They need lessons on better customer service. Should stick to being a bar and focus on sushi and sashimi only."
