We live this place! However we took our elderly mother and it was too dark in there for her to see the food on her plate. I know it’s all about ambience but the lights could have been turned up a bit.

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!!!

Best potstickers I have ever had. They are hand made on premise and are beyond delicious. I also ordered the sliced beef in hoisin sauce which was also fabulous. We were traveling through on our way to Phoenix and I am saddened that I don’t live in Omaha, so I can eat here more often.

The ambiance is very 1980s, including the Whitney Houston/Bodyguard elevator music piped throughout the dining room. It was somewhat distracting. I was hoping for something a bit more modern, or at the very least, current for my business meeting. The food was good but not necessarily memorable. Nice wine selection, a knowledgeable server, and very kind staff.

Great food. The owner was very hands on. Gave only 3 stars for service due to our server, he seemed to be extremely over extended. He took our order and delivered the bill. Other than that, nothing. He seemed to be the only one taking orders.
The owner deliver our food, refilled our cocktails and brought our debit card back.

Wave Bistro has above average food - but not great food. I think pricing is appropriate for what you get. My Shechuan Shrimp was tasty but not great - shrimp was a bit overcooked. My husband had a shrimp & noodle dish (I don't remember what it was called) lots of noodles very few veggies. Our friends both enjoyed their dinners. Lettuce wrap appetizer was a big hit.
