Wasabi - Johnston
Best.In.Town. A Can't Miss
Christmas Eve and the waiter and mgr were amazing
Good like usual. Service was a little slower than normal, but overall a good experience
Mother’s Day lunch didn’t disappoint at one of our favorite local restaurants. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. They were very busy and the staff seemed overwhelmed, but service never suffered. The manager came around with roses for the mother’s, and apologized for any wait or delays. Service and food was amazing as always! Will return time and time again.
We had a wonderful Mother's Day lunch at Wasabi Johnston! The raspberry cosmo and sweet potato tempura were amazing!
Mother’s Day lunch was perfect.
Great service. Good menu selections. Comfortable seating with attention to social distancing.
First time and I will definitely go back.
It was delicious
Excellent Ramen - best in town. The sushi is great too.
The food was excellent! Disappointed the waiter had on a gator and did always even have that on. Would have been more comfortable if he had a mask on
Good food and great drinks!
We really enjoyed it. Made reservations and got seated immediately. Great service, great food!
Food and service were awesome. Price is a little high for the area.
We love Wasabi. Food is amazing! We love that we have an excellent sushi restaurant just down the street.
Perfect for taking my friends out for my one friends birthday
We love Wasabi. The food is amazing. We were disappointed that with a reservation that we got the table right by the door. Every time someone came in or left, we got a chill.We mentioned it to our waitress when she first came over, but she just shrugged it off.
Excellent food, excellent service, but that’s the standard here!
Excellent place for lunch in the area. Comfortable enough for casual or and refined enough for work meetings
Old school ramen is amazing!!
I am so happy to have tried Wasabi - Johnston. I had no idea it existed and always was challenged as to where to get sushi when in Des Moines. This is without a doubt going to be my go to location for the future. We sat inside, but there is outdoor seating on a patio. Service (Emily) was awesome...super attentive and positive. Food was excellent! Dessert (some sort of chocolate, chocolate, chocolate dish) was delicious.
Was a great meal. Ramen was excellent, especially the “old school” bowl ! Wanted to go back, but had to leave town sooner than expected
Our Sunday dinner group had a very nice dinner.
Great service and food. Can’t wait to come back!
This place never disappoints. Staff is friendly, and the food is always amazing. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
AC was not functioning properly, staff was apologetic but it was still extremely warm. Food was excellent as always, but it’s hard to enjoy a meal while you’re sweating.
This was our second visit to Wasabi - Johnston, since we wanted to eat a light dinner after having a heavy lunch. We enjoyed the sashimi dinner as we had our first visit. This time we got the crab wrapped salmon appetizer, which was also delicious.
We were plesanatly surprised by this small restaurant near the hotel where we were staying. The miso soup did not have enough tofu in it, but the sashimi was very fresh and tasty -- all high quality cuts. Our wine choices were delicious, so we enjoyed this dinner immensely overall. Our server was very attentive and accommodating.
We love Wasabi. Always great food, great service, and a good time. We bring family and friends all the time!
This is always our favorite place to get sushi in the Des Moines area. Easy to get in and out and delicious food!
Wasabi in Johnston is amazing! Our server was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We love coming to this restaurant for any occasion.
First of all, the service was great! Shane and Will are great and will treat you like family!
The food was awesome and very well priced. You can't go wrong with Wasabi-Johnston!
The food was very good. My daughter had never had sushi previously and enjoyed her dinner. Will be going back!
The food is amazing... drinks were great. Try the raspberry martini!
Food was great, obviously made with fresh ingredients. Vaun was our waiter and also head bartender. He was terrific, made helpful suggestions for ordering and was knowledgeable about both food and drink. He even chased down a car of customers that forgot their cell phone. We're putting this place on our "go to" list of places to dine.
Food and presentation was amazing!
