I had resided in Calf. for several years. When I came to Omaha, friends took me to the Wave Bistro for dinner. I have since moved to Omaha and thought of " The Wave " for my birthday celebration. The waiting staff was exceptional and the food superb.

We had an enjoyable evening with a delicious dinner. We never felt rushed. Although our initial service was slow, the wait staff worked diligently after we asked to order our dinner. The food was excellent with a beautiful plate presentation. Since it was a special occasion, the birthday girl was served three different samples of creme brûlée. All three were wonderful. And, again, a beautiful presentation. We will certainly be back soon.

As always, Chef George’s creative take on Asian fusion offered many fine choices for my friends’ lunch gathering. My fave, the Creamy Lemon Almond Shrimp, was beautifully presented and wonderully delicious. Save room for the creme brulee trio for dessert!

This was our first visit to Wave and we found the experience to be a delightful one. Although it is situated in a strip mall storefront, the ambience was relaxing and decor elegant. The Asian fusion had a good, but not overwhelming selection. Portion size was healthy and presentation was nicely done. The service was excellent--it was neither overbearing nor inattentive--and we also had an opportunity to visit with the proprietor. For our special occasion we received a complimentary desert--the creme brûlée trio. Our compliments to the chef! We left completely satisfied and enjoyed the experience immensely. We will return!

Consistently delicious food in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for conversation and business meetings. Service can be slow, as it was on this visit. The staff is friendly, and our server was knowledgeable and accommodating toward special dietary requests. I’ve been dining here for years, and it’s always a favorite.

We are frequent visitors to Wave Bistro. We love the food and the service is superb.

The ambiance is restful and inviting and the decor simple and elegant.

We're already anticipating our next visit.

It's also nice to be personally greeted by the owners who seem to really want our experience to be a positive one.

They were very sweet but terribly under staffed. Our group got dinner except for one person who did not get hers until the rest of us were done. Very apologetic, however noticed many around us were having difficulties also?. Would hesitate to go there with a group again. I like the food but not sure it is worth the problems we experienced

Pleasant, quiet, excellent food, great service. The owner stopped by to check that we were satisfied. We ordered pork dumpings for a starter which were delicious. The honey ginger soy glazed salmon was succulent and flavorful, cooked perfectly and served with the best broccoli. The lemon creamy almond shrimp were large and plentiful, almost too many but we managed them all. They were deliciously creamy with a subtle crunch. One of our favorite Omaha restaurants. We have dined there often and will return.

We love Wave! The group sitting in the booth next to us were a little loud making it difficult to hear conversation at our table at times but, we’ve never experienced this before and after they left, the noise level was much better. As always, the food and service were stellar. Especially loved the short rib curry - one of the specials on the menu this evening.

The restaurant is "Asian Fusion". Some items classic, others rather unique. We both had something unusual and they were both very good. They obviously were short on servers (one of the managers was waiting tables), so services was a little slow. Overall excellent.

We visited Wave Bistro to celebrate a girls weekend to Omaha. We were greeted promptly by a friendly hostess. We were seated in a comfortable, quiet booth. Juan was our server and he was outstanding! Friendly and knowledgeable, he explained the cuisine and offered recommendations. We enjoyed appetizers of calamari, firecracker shrimp rolls and spring rolls. All excellent! Our entrees included Thai Green Curry Shrimp, Orange Chicken and Cashew Crusted Salmon. All excellent and delicious! The sweet buns with fresh butter at the start of our meal were amazing!! With so many dining choices available, we were so pleased we chose Wave Bistro to celebrate a fun weekend. Excellent service and delicious food!!!
