Bistro Wasabi - Lake in the Hills
Although this is a "regular" place for us - usually once a week - this particular visit was just a last minute decision. But we got seated right away at our usual table. Our regular server, Erica, was off that night but we had Suki who is also wonderful. Food was top-notch, as always.
Celebrated my granddaughter's 16th birthday. Great time, great food, great service. Loved it.
I thought one of our rolls was great, the others were too oversized for one bite and rolled too loosely. Also they didn’t have anything creative on them. Very plain and average. I really wanted to like this place, I’ve heard so much about it, but it was just ok.
BW is always a treat. Great food and drinks with exceptional service.
Always great food and service. One of our favorite restaurants!
The food and ambiance is amazing. The price is expensive but not outrageous. But I have had a few questionable wait staff.
In this price range I expect to not have to crane my neck or twist my torso looking for the wait staff, and in the few rare occasions when I do, I would think someone would back fill immediately even it it's not their table. . .or at least find the tables wait staff to get their attention for me. I would also expect that someone would be johnny on the spot will keeping water glasses full. At this price range I should not have to ask for a refill or a new bottle for the table, it should just show up when needed.
Lastly I have had the wait staff take my card and bill and then disappear for an unreasonable amount of time. So long that I have to hunt the person down to ask for my card back.
It's the little things like this that keep this restaurant from being a 5 star place. Good news is that it's easy to fix.
When we arrived we were greeted promptly. The restaurant was clean. We were greeted by our server right away. We enjoyed the Seared Tuna which was done perfectly. and edemami appitizers On Tues it’s 1/2 priced wine night. Our food arrived promptly. We had various shushi platters. Which were enough to take home for later. The shushi was firm and fresh. My husband ordered the salmon. It was seared and flaky. Done perfectly. I had Noodle soup with tempura shrimp. I loved it. It is served in 2 bowls. One contains oudan noodles which are a thick dough like noodle which were amazing. Hard to eat if you’re not adept at chopsticks. But worth the try. The broth was similar to miso broth. And in the other bowl was the shrimp tempura and veggies. You add that to soup as you like. Delicious! Our dinner was quite enjoyable. The only reason I gave 4 stars for ambiance was the noise level. Extremely loud. Otherwise the perfect dinner.
Bistro Wasabi never fails to deliver and impress. We love it here and frequent as often as possible. We are lucky to have such great sushi so close by!
As usual, the food and the service were excellent.
Food is amazing; menu hard to figure out especially for new customers; table lighting is terrible; ASHLEY, our waitress, was phenomenal!!
Outstanding food!!!! The absolute best sushi!! The service is also attentive & informative.
Very consistent, freshly prepared sushi and good cocktails
Our usual server, Erica, wasn't there so we had Suki. She's also an outstanding server. Tried the sushi boat for two. Various chef's selections of sushi and sashimi. Absolutely outstanding. Can't wait to go back and have it again.
Usual great food and service. Discovered a new menu item for hour next visit - Sushi boats. An a actual wooden craft filled with various sushi and sashimi delectable. Comes in sizes for one, two or three. REALLY BIG. Will try for the boat for one unless my grandson comes along. Then we'll need to try the boat for two.
Good sushi and sashimi, with a few entrees for the American palate as well. Can be a little loud when crowded. Also slightly expensive for the area, but food quality is worth the price.
Good good service ok
Continued great food and service here. We try to go once a week. It's that good!
Food and service is always great. This is the reason we are long time customers!!!!
Out of 4 types of fish and had no oysters
It was my husband's birthday and they brought us a little free dessert with a candle and song. Very nice touch.
Our server was friendly and prompt. They have the best martinis poured at the table. The sushi is fresh and tasty. Would recommend for lunch or dinner.
Delicious! A favorite and we will keep coming back!
Once again, amazing food an service. The Crackled tuna appetizer is a must! Thanks to Erica for taking great care of us.
Great first time experience! Our server had wonderful recommendations. My husband and I enjoyed everything we had!
Always a great restaurant! Best Sushi in the area, by far.
Amazing food, as always. The Crackled Tuna appetizer is incredible! Thanks to Taylor for taking great care of us!
Excellent as usual. Our favorite sushi spot
3 of 4 meals were great. The other was slightly warm when served. We'll definitely be back!
Puts some cushions on the benches !, it’s hard to enjoy your meal if your not comfortable 😰
Hands down, the best sushi this side of Tokyo.
Thank you for everything and making our evenings special
Another great dining experience here. Tried another one of the featured martinis - pecan caramel. I know, I know, a purist wouldn't go that route. And I hasten to say that my "go to" martini is Grey Goose on the rocks, extra dirty, bleu cheese olives. But BW's creativity keeps me trying the martini de jour. As usual, food and service were outstanding. Erica is 10+.
Always amazing. Thank you for making all of our dinners with you special.
Always enjoy the great food experience & wonderful service!
We love this place but since the menu has changed was
3 out of 4 of us ordered the Ahi tuna - delicious! Forgot what the 4th ordered but she was very happy with it. Service was great especially considering we were in no hurry to be served or to stop gabbing and leave. No pressure on us to clear out on a very busy Friday. If you're going on a weekend best to get reservations.
It's the place I prefer to go for sushi. Always consistently good.
