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.

It was fine. Food was good. It was a bit noisy and not great for an our special occasion-anniversary. It seemed short-handed but our service was still pretty good. Kind of strange seeing folks eat at the bar. I will come back cause I like the food alot but probably not on a special occasion.

service was poor. 1 waiter for the entire restaurant. I will never come back. I had been to this restaurant over 10 times in past and food is excellent, but the absence of service is not acceptable, maybe for a $10 plate, but at their price point, no.

EXCELLENT. Solid 4.5+ Stars. YES, we would go back. LONGER VERSION: Over the years we have been to Wave 30+ times and it always does a great job. This time was no exception. Although we now live in Denver, we come to Omaha for business 6-8 times a year and visit Wave when we can. The Pan Asian/Creole/French inspired menu should please most. FOOD: The almond rolls as a quick appetizer are just too addicting - they should be outlawed. Yummy! :-) We shared the mushroom soup - Excellent. My wife had the Sea Bass, I had the Teriyaki glazed Salmon. Very, very good - yes we would order them again. Wines by the glass are a bit sparse, but still adequate and should please most. SERVICE: Excellent from James - our main server - and a mainstay at Wave. Advice and attentiveness you would expect. OVERALL: This is a well run family bistro by George and Connie, and Wave has been a mainstay in West Omaha for over a decade. Don't let the corner Strip Mall location next to Home Depot fool you - this is a very nice upscale neighborhood gem of a place. Suggest you get reservations on weekends. Prices are reasonable.

Lovely place to dine. Especially like the white table cloths, attentive service, ambiance and food. Terrific for gluten free since majority of food is a rice based, including bread. Only downside was food wait was slow, however it was busy Evening.

This was our first visit to Wave Bistro even though we live only a few miles away. We all enjoyed our food. I had the lamb chops which were some of the best I have ever had. The others in the party had chicken which was also. We had the triple creme brulet for desert.

I continued to be amazed at just how good this restaurant is. My wife and I discovered it a few years ago, and we have a great time bringing friends who have never been here before. Upon leaving everyone is wondering why they hadn't heard about it before. The food is consistently terrific. It is a nice comfortable room and the service is spot on. It runs maybe 10% to 15% than a place with similar cuisine, but there is no one in town who does it better. You can't go wrong.
