My wife and I love this place. We try to eat here once or twice whenever we visit my parents in Des Moines. The service is outstanding, but the appetizers, sushi and sushi rolls are the best.

Happy hour specials are fabulous! And Monday is 30% off bottles of wine, so great way to connect with friends at a low price point.

The food was amazing. The cocktails were beautiful. My only wish was that the lighting was less fluorescent - would make for a nicer ambience. Good experience!

We've been here several times and this was the first semi negative experience. The lights were brighter, they tried to sit us next to the kitchen even though plenty of tables were available and our server, while nice, was not very polished. Delivering entree before clearing apps and not cleaning table despite a small spill.

Wonderful, quiet place to have a working lunch.

Service was prompt, with drinks brought right away and soda refilled the right amount of times. Myself and a colleague were meeting to go over some projects and this was the perfect location for that.

Lunch portions were ideal - I had the 7 pc sushi and tuna roll while she had the sushi bento box. Miso soup was served quickly, and the main courses arrived soon after.

The tuna roll was neat and tidy, and there were two pieces of seared preparation of nigiri along with 5 traditional pieces of nigiri. The seared preparation was an interesting and unexpected surprise that was really cool to see. To have that much effort and focus put in on lunch prep was amazing.

I’d highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to trying Wasabi again in the future!
