El servicio y ambiente fueron excelente. Comimos adentro y Nos sentimos seguros porque hubo suficiente espacio entre las mesas. He comido acá por muchos años y la comida siempre es rica y los precios son bien. Le recomiendo el ahí tuna.

Weather was very nice so we ate outside. Usual great service and great food. Continuing to try new menu items. This time, it was the wrapped asparagus, tuna poke and the scallops and shrimp entree. All delicious.

Last minute reservation but they were able to accommodate. In addition to some of my normal menu choices, I also tried the steak tacos from their Mexican place next door. Really good - with three sauces to choose from, or mix and match.

Excellent food, excellent wait staff, excellent atmosphere. We couldn’t have fallen into a better place to have dinner with old friends. We will definitely return. This place was a great find. My favorite surprise was the spicy edamame.

Nice evening so we sat outside. Chilled a little but they put on the heaters and it was nice and cozy. Hope they find a way to keep the outside open as the weather starts to turn. It's really a nice way to dine. Food and service, as usual, were great.

Seems like the rolls have shrunk in size lots of rice just kind of ok. The Octopus Sashimi
was large, but so chewy we could not eat it. Desert was really pricey for what they give you. Our server Erika was amazing and so attentive to my daughter and I. I highly recommend the 2012 Vina Alberdi Tempranillo it was amazing for $12.00 a glass.

Complete dining experience was outstanding - as usual. Starting to also order some things from their Mexican counterpart next door since you can order from either menu at both places. Wondering what they're going to do for outside seating now that chilly weather is upon us.

This was our first visit, and it was highly recommended by friends. Now we know why they love it so much. Your wait staff is very friendly, fun, and attentive. Food was fabulous and atmosphere very welcoming. We definitely will return. Thank you for a wonderful evening. And next time we will have a few drinks at the bar, which looked like a fun place!

I'm pretty much a creature of habit, as can be gleaned from my many reviews of Bistro Wasabi. And that normally carries over into what I order. But I'm trying to taste something new with each visit. And I've been very happy with each new item, whether sushi, sashimi, entree, appetizer, drinks. I love this place.

We had an amazing experience at Bistro Wasabi! They had no trouble accommodating my shellfish allergy, and the food was delicious. Our server offered great recommendations and was very attentive. We went during covid, and the restaurant did an excellent job of spacing out the tables and following social distancing. We will absolutely be coming back very soon!!

Started out as a party of 5 and, although all their tables for 5 were taken, they were going to add a chair to one of the other tables to accommodate us. But then the party turned into 8. They don't have the space to take a party of that size for outdoor, but they gave us the small private room - which was GREAT! As usual, food was delicious, delivered in a timely manner, and service was A+.
