Being new to the area, visiting a quality sushi restaurant can be concerning. I can always rely on Open Table reviews to set me on the right path to dining. All the reviews a read were positive and gave the restaurant 4 1/2 star average and they were on the money. The service was prompt, the wait staff were pleasant and the sushi was great with good presentation. I would go back with out a second thought.

Overall we had a good time. It was my son's birthday and he loves it there! A part of our party was late which caused some confusion when it came time for habachi. The fried rice which is always a hit in my family, was very bland and seemed a bit rushed when cooking it. Other than that, all went well.

Good sushi but nothing spectacular. Pad Thai was underwhelming, too soupy, with very little chicken. The salad was an afterthought - a few pieces of iceberg lettuce with a tomato and a bland dressing. The place has terrible acoustics and was extremely noisy, even though the place was barely half full. The Hibachi area is large, but the folks who want just regular food were crammed into a very small space.

We go to Wasabi because of the fresh yummy sushi. It's the best around. The waiter, Denny, was very efficient and friendly. Like the service better than before.
We will visit Wasabi again.

Just the best Japanese steakhouse around for sure. It is a smaller place not like those big fancy places. It has the best tasting food, best portions, and best sauces around. The drinks are great too!

While visiting friends in NH, they suggested we try Wasabi. Glad we did. With one exception (calamari & shrimp appetizer was skimpy and overcooked), the food was very good. I had Pad Thai and it was one of the best I've ever had (and I've eaten a LOT). Good service. Please be aware that the Hibachi section is the largest part of the restaurant and the room we ate in was fairly small and crowded on a Friday night.

We were a large group of 15 for a work holiday party. Our waiters and chefs were awesome. In the years past we've gone to another local hibachi restaurant but were not satisfied with the customer service. We'll be back to wasabi next year!

I love this place more than any other hibachi restaurant. The sauces are great, the portions are good, the food is better than most others I have tried. The noodles are AWESOME. The only bad part is rice and/or noodles are extra with all dishes where other places one or the other are included. Other than that - perfect! The drinks aren't so bad either ;)

Getting there and mentioning the Open Table reservation was obvious not possible, since the hostess didn't know anything about Open Table! She was clueless!
I then talked to the manager and he said it was okay.
We got a table anyhow and as always, the sushi was delicious. The service was just okay, nothing great.
It is because of the sushi we go back there.

Thinking of Wasabi tonight? Go for it!

What can I say? Wasabi doesn't have a michelin star rating, but the food is reliably good, the service is good, and the teppanyaki show is not the best, but far from the worst that I've paid more money for. The sushi is good, the star being the volcano roll, which never disappoints.

Wasabi was fun for our entire group of 10. Since we figured there would be other graduation celebration dinners, we made a reservation to avoid a potentially long wait. Upon arrival at our reservation time, we still had to wait more than an hour. It was not pleasant as the place was very busy with a small waiting/bar area not well suited for children. Two other groups that also had reservations left instead of waiting. Once we were seated, the chef put on a great show and the food was delicious.

The sushi is always fresh and nicely presented. After the entrees, I got my meal but the waitress forgot my husbands and it came way after I was finished, because I mentioned it to her. The manager heard and offered my husband a beer, which was very nice. I guess the whole thing was a misunderstanding. We will be back.

Hibachi experience was very good - nothing out of the ordinary, but professional. My young son seemed to enjoy the entertainment. Portions were good, pricey for experience and portions.

My Open Table reservation was for 7 pm, and we were seated at around 7:45 pm.

We would go back for the food - hope organization is on their to-do list for improvement. Friendly staff there.

This is one of our kids favorite places to go for celebration dinners. We like it because we know the food is always great, the atmosphere is very relaxed and we can bring anywhere from 2-10 people and be easily accommodated. However, it is not an inexpensive night out - expect to pay between 25 - 40 per person.

Like I said, the food was great and the service was good but the waitress could use a lesson in customer service. Each time she came to the table, it felt like she was dropping the plates on the table and trying to take away plates we were still eating from.

This it's one of my new favorite places for hibachi, I've been to new Tokyo (rip) and Tomo. The atmosphere here it's more relaxed and not as much of a scene hang out like Tomo but I enjoyed it. The food it's seasoned so well full of flavor not bland, but not too much where any one ingredient over powers the rest of the meal. The portions are generous and the prices are very affordable compared to others in the area. The sushi is great so far, the sushi rice perfection as well. The hibachi chef was quick. The only thing that caught me off guard that I hadn't noticed in the past due to going in large groups, Is that the hibachi rice it's default boiled white rice, if you want fried rice with veggies ect, it's an extra $2. But overall it's my new hibachi place.

Not the best! Not the worst. We preferred a table for two only where the food was OK and the service very fast. and not leisurely. There were sound of fun coming from the Hibachi Table area and that section appeared to be a good time for families.

We made a reservation. When we arrived it was an hour and a half wait or longer for our reservation. The place was packed and everyone that had a reservation had to wait that long or longer. It was dissapointing that we had the reservation and they weren't organized enough to make sure that we had a spot when we got there. We ended up eating in the normal dinning area. The food was just ok but the service was great.

We never even ate dinner as they overbooked the restaurant for NY eve. We stood in line at the door waiting to check in for our reservations for 30 mins. Finally a rude young girl came out telling everyone they would call when your table was ready as they were way behind schedule due to people drinking. Isn't that what you expect on NY's eve? Within a few minutes another gentleman came out and told us his reservation was 1.5 hrs prior and he was still waiting. At this point we left and went to another japanese restaurant that was delicious and had no wait!

Wasabi is a favorite of our 10-year-old nephew so we always go as a group when we're visiting from Illinois. The food is consistent and good, typical of what you'd expect from a Japanese steak house. The hibachi chefs are friendly and entertaining. On our last visit, there was a group of guys at the table behind us that were so loud, they behaved as if they were at a frat party...not cool at all. After they arrived we could no longer converse at our table. Other than that, we enjoyed our meal. My nephew had a great time.

I have booked this restaurant 3 times via Open Table. Once we were told it did not come through. The other two we were put on a list. All three times the wait with a reservation was 30-45 minutes. It's a good show and good for groups/kids but too long to wait with a reservation. This aspect needs to be corrected!
