The food was outstanding! Service was slow but it was very busy and the poor waitress was not told that she had our table until the manager noticed we hadn’t been approached yet. Looking forward to returning again!

Great fresh sushi ! I have Celiac disease and a shellfish allergy. The Chef's and staff take good care of me. I really like the spicy tuna deluxe maki rolls, Jeffrey's special salad , Maguro salad and the sashimi Carpaccio. They offer on Tuesday nights half price bottles of wine.

Bistro Wasabi in Lake in the Hills, IL runs like a well oiled machine. Staff and servers are friendly and worked together to make our dining a very nice experience. Dishes and drinks were delicious and a good value. To ensure you are not waiting long for a table be sure to make a reservation. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived for our 7 pm reservation on a Saturday evening. We were seated within two minutes. We love Bistro Wasabi and will dine there again soon.

We’ve been coming here for over 20 years. It’s more expensive than some places but we’ll worth it. They Als have amazing steak, lamb and other non sushi items. We’d suggest having a drink at the bar and then going to dinner. Mae it a night.

This by far is the best Sushi place to eat. I always brag about how wonderful the food is to anyone who loves Sushi. The staff is always pleasant and if you go often, they recognize you and greet you like family 😉

Our second time there, although the food was good, we were disappointed by the service- She acted like it was a bother to ask questions, and was not attentive to us and what we needed. It took a while to get our food. The lack of service, made the experience not pleasant at all.
