We had a warm welcome from our friends, Connie and James. Always good to see them. The food was awesome as always. Our party had salmon, pad Thai, and the dynamite seafood, all were superior. The Makers Mark Manhattans were wonderful. Service was excellent. Thanks, Paul and Linda

The atmosphere of the Wave Bistro was very calming and soothing. Everything on the inside gave an upscale feel. The food was amazing, we started with a couple rolls of this sweet bread with almond butter. The rolls had a nice crisp exterior with a fluffy light inside that will leave you wanting more. We then had the Crab cakes for a starter, the Crab cakes were cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. I had the Orange Chicken that was served with a few pieces of broccoli and a side of steamed rice. The Orange Chicken was crisp on the outside and moist on the inside with a nice coating of the orange sauce. The broccoli complimented the chicken well and had a nice hint of butter. The steamed rice was perfectly cooked, had a nice texture and was very sticky. I loved every part of my meal and the server was beyond attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking from some quality Chinese dining.

Lovely restaurant, white linen table clothes, nice ambiance. Food presentation is very elegant. I had the cashew crusted salmon, which is excellent. We have been there twice, the first time service was absolutely outstanding. This time, we had a male server, he was a bit hasty and brisk. Therefore, our experience wasn’t as impressive as it was the first time we went. Overall though it is a great place to dine, and a little bit different than your typical Chinese cuisine.

We love Wave Bistro. Every time we are there, the food and service are both excellent. There is a woman (not sure if she is an owner or manager) that comes to the table every time to make sure you are happy with everything! The food here is amazing.

I chose the wave bistro because I love their food especially the crab cakes appetizer. We were early for our reservation because our movie got out sooner than we expected, but the hostess was able to seat us within a few minutes. Service as always was excellent with much attention given to detail of the table and the food. Because it was New Year's Eve, I think they must have added a few extra tables because they were very close together and the noise level was not really conducive to private conversations. Still gave it a 5 star rating because I do love their food and their service.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The Wonton Soup was super and the Chicken in Spiced Hoisin was delicious. We ate on New Years Eve and the noise level was very loud. That was our only complaint. We will be back.

We had a party of 6 for New Year's Eve. Of course it was quite busy, and service was a bit slower than normal. Between the 6 of us we had the short ribs, seafood dynamite and cashew crusted salmon. We all loved our choices. The server also suggested a great wine. This place has never disappointed. Highly recommended.
