Wasabi was relaxed and great as always.
We don’t get to go out often but when we do, we go to Wasabi. It’s the closest I can get to authentic Japanese-style sushi.
We took advantage of $6 roll night on Tuesday and loved it. We ordered the miso soup and sesame spring salad. The salad took a very long time to be prepared, for some reason but tasted good. We ordered 3 rolls: Washington Avenue, Spicy Mango and, at the recommendation of Samuel our server, the Scallop Volcano. Each was excellent but we especially enjoyed the Scallop Volcano. Our server, Samuel, was very knowledgeable, attentive and extremely pleasant.
Really nice place, but I think they were really busy. My food came out about 15 minutes prior to my husbands and it was cold. The food was still good.
Always great food and great service. Jon is the BEST!
Amazing service! Samuel was great! The food was great as well!
Best sushi you can get within a 200 mile radius!
Connor is the best waiter, we go nearly every Tuesday and he takes great care of us. The food is also excellent and the sake is good. It's truly a fun and interesting place to have something different.
My family has been to Wasabi Fairview Height many times . The sushi is fresh, prepared to perfection and always tastes great. The servers.. mostlyt young men... are helpful, friendly attentive . We have had the same server several times...his name is Conor. He is wonderful and should be commended for his service. The manager Cory is always helpful ..I've called in the past to ask about specials. I will continue to go to Wasabi as long as it stays as it is right now Great addition to Fairview dining...Ruth
Worst service ever. Took 20 minutes to have someone come get our drink order. And the host ended up taking our drink order then ended up having to serve us. Many servers went by our table but never checked to see if we needed help when we clearly had no drinks and closed menus. It took another 45 minutes for our food to come out. The host/server didn't even know what the type of plates we needed. Do not go here unless you want to be neglected. Many people got up and left while we were waiting.
Most of the food was very good but I was disappointed in the Spicy Mango roll. It tested very acidid....very vinegary. Ok atmosphere but our server was very weak. He did not check back....drinks were not always refilled. After he gave us the check just as throughout the meal he was more interested in talking to his friends that were dining at the table across from us.
Huge opportunity to improve quality of service. I'm not even sure my reservation on OpenTable was even acknowledged when I arrived? Which was how (OpenTable) I even located the restaurant in the first place. And why I still deserve my dining points although, as mentioned, I was never checked in (my dining reservation).
Great experience and polite
Mother's Day lunch on the patio. Wonderful sushi with great service.
Waiter was amazing, tge kitchen messed up, 1 app we didnt get until 30-45 mins after our main course. The server comp us, but it wasn't his fault.
We were searching for a good sushi place after living in Japan for 3 years. This one comes closest to authentic Japanese fare. Definitely recommend it if you want good Sashimi, Maki and Nigiri!
The entire wait staff was very helpful. Collecting dishing when we were finished, filling up our drinks etc. Always a pleasure eating there.
Ambiance is great and happy hour is even better
Good food but it was definitely in need of some better cleaning
Waiter never came to check on us, I had to keep getting other attention for water refills. Took a long time for our food as well.
Our waiter, Tyler, as awesome and very accommodating to our group.
Overall a really good dining experience. Server John was knowledgeable and prompt. Great sushi and veggie tempura!
Great food and friendly service. My only complaint is the host admitted she hadn't checked for reservations did have a table available
It was my first time eating sushi The service or the food did not stand out for me ....my dish came out with the appetizer, so it was luke warm by the time I was able to eat it..and the other dishes were late ..server stated they ran out of rice...over all it was just ok
Awesomeness at it's best! Wonderful, professional and outstanding wait staff. Cuisine that is second to none! Some of the freshest sushi in the metro area!
When I first walked in they seated me without asking my name or referring a reservation at all. They didn't even acknowledge or seem to care about my Open table reservation. I had to keep telling them OVER and OVER again to make sure they check me in.
I went there with my girlfriend for Valentines Day they had a really nice special menu that gave you a good idea of the range of the menu everything was well prepared and the tables were made up nice and we were even allowed to keep the rose at our table would definitely go there again
So this was a great date dinner. We booked on Saturday before Valentine's day, and expected insane crowds. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is small, was quite quiet, food came out hot and quickly, excellently prepared. I did dock 2 starts under service. Our server seemed to have a lot of trouble managing his tables, but was trying. The host was great.
We tried the wasabi goons, a couple cocktails, and 4 different Maki rolls. I have not a single complaint on the food. It was excellent.
A few people did come in before is and were told long wait times, due to holiday booking. If you are going to go on a busy day, don't skip the reservation.
It is rare to find a restaurant on the IL side of the river that accepts reservations. It worked well for our group of 9. Our waitress was experienced and handled our large, demanding party and several others like a pro. We appreciated the low noise level. It allowed us to have pleasant conversation and interactions throughout the meal.
The prices aren't too bad. There is a large selection. However, it is kind of small. I'll definitely be going back though!
My visit to this Wasabi location was a great experience. Our server, Chelsea thoroughly answered all of our questions about the menu and provided great service. I would revisit this location and request Chelsea as our server.
