    We will continually return to Wasabi…it’s one of our favorite places. One disappointment thought is that the price for drinks, especially wine, seems to continually increase when I know the wine is being over priced.

    Went for my wife's birthday and noted that in the on-line reservation - Host acknowledged that upon greeting, then Waiter/Bartender recognized it at the beginning of dinner and then again at the end with dessert - excellent customer service. Food was excellent, as usual - sushi, curry, kimchi fried rice - all well done, though preferred with a little more spice; the difference-maker is Chris the bartender - exceptional server, remembers us every time, haven't been there in a few months and he still knew my beverage of choice and wife's preference. I've been in the restaurant business for 30+ years all over the U.S. and during such a turbulent time when recruiting is a challenge and retention is paramount - hope you take great care of him, he's a Keeper and brings your guests back!

    Had a great dinner--the brussels sprouts starter and the crab roll were particularly delicious! We drove about 40 miles each way to the restaurant and it was well worth it. We will be going to Wasabi more often ...

    Not a good experience. I really liked the other Wasabi restaurants, so wanted to try this one. Food was good - what we got. Server didn’t put in our starter or one of our rolls, then never checked to see if we needed anything.

    Enjoyed trying different foods - created a sampler of different thing as an appetizer for the table. The chef had fun assembling a selection. Our entrée choices were varied and each of us thought our's was great.

    It was a Mother’s Day dinner and we had great sushi and drinks. Music was a little loud. The curry noodles were a bit sweet for our liking but overall the other food was fantastic! If you go you must have the kimchi fried rice!

    Service was good. My concern is they go way overboard with the sweetness level of the food. The seafood curry was as sweet as a dessert. I'm used to Asian food being balanced between the levels of sweet, spicy, salty, etc.

    Restaurants are under immense stress and I appreciate Wasabi’s consistently good quality food throughout. Even when a tiny hiccup happens on that rare occasion, they’ve always made it right for us and last night was no exception. I’ll be back for more of their delicious Ramen and sushi.

    Great ambiance and the service was excellent. They don't have a great variety of rolls which was a little disappointing. There's a large handful of them but they're all pretty similar with the exception of one or two ingredients. Definitely recommend the brussel sprouts. They were delicious!

    Third visit in the past two months, very consistent, wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others. Food was, once again, excellent, and attractively presented; service was friendly and efficient, though one oddity was our Server spoke in the third person - "are we ready to order", "should we clear these plates", etc., no biggie but kind of quirky with each interaction. Good looking dining room. Appreciated the hand sanitizer on each table. Font on the menu is tiny, could do a nicer job with menu presentation for easier reading especially in dimmer lighting. Good selection of specialty cocktails, wines by the glass program could use some attention and variety. Overall, great local spot, dependable, please run some Chef's Specials to try out some new menu items. Thanks.

    Food an environment we’re good. Wasn’t please when I looked closer at my receipt and found a re-Corking fee for the wine bottle. Although the waitress asked, she didn’t explain costs. The cost of re-corking was $11 and all she did was push the cork in with her thumb. It wasn’t a sealed bag like other places do it. Next time pay me $11 to push my own cork in. I get the rules and laws, but don’t ask me and then just shove the cork in with your thumb in front of me and charge me money.
