    Food was excellent. Drinks were pricy ($12 for glass of plum wine) Beautiful decor, but very noisy.

    I started out with a pina colada, was quite yummy. For my dinner I went with Fresh Vegetable Stir Fry. It was good, nothing exceptional but I would eat it again. The Szechwan style Tofu in Hot Garlic Sauce looked amazing! My dining companion said it was good and she would order again.

    This is a neighborhood jewel; great asian and fusion cuisine; the menu and the wine list are brief but high in quality. The attention isexcellebt and your server pays attention to thw details. Food is excellent and price is reasonable; the relationship quality/price is well balanced.

    Service and food was great as always. I had my usual Lemon Almond Shrimp and they were cooked perfectly and delicious. Husband had his favorite orange chicken and it was great. Our friend had the Korean Jjampong Ramen Noodles and it was tasty but huge! Definitely had leftovers of everything! One of our favorite places when we come to Omaha.

    Wave Bistro food is wonderful. Order took awhile to arrive to table. But worth the wait. Environment is loud and hard to hear person across the booth from me. Waiter was busy due to a full house, but it showed. Advice from a former server, don’t let your customers see you sweat and do not rush their order by finishing their order/sentences.

    Certainly one of the top restaurants in Omaha and in our experience one of the very best Asian in the country. It is unique fine Asian dinning, down to the white table cloths. Small intimate modern attractive facility. Very nice menu, outstanding beautiful food and efficient Midwest friendly service. The owner is there and a gracious, enjoyable hostess.

    We took out of town guests to Wave last night. We had reservations but were given the worst table in the restaurant, right next to the bathroom. I accepted it because I thought maybe the noise level would be lower if we were off to the side, it was difficult to carry on a conversation it was so loud. The service was very slow, two tables next to us were seated after us but got their food before we even ordered. I had to stop someone twice and told them we wanted to place our order. The food was delicious as always but everything else not so much.

    We found it to be noisy. They have a prep area in the dining room and that was disturbing next to our table. They should move that to the back. The calamari was under cooked. The main dishes were good but a bit overpriced. The crispy chicken breast dish was delicious. The crusted salmon was good. Spicy dishes really had no heat. The service was mediocre at best. I would do take out from here but I did not care for the dining experience. The little fried bread was amazing.

    Had the Moscow Mule to start and was amazing. Orange chicken was full of moist delicious meat unlike most places that are primarily breading with little meat. The cashew crusted salmon was also a hit.
