I like both the restaurant area and the teppeneke tables. The sushi is great and I love love love the tall shrimp wonton in the wine glass with the spicy sauce. Only had bad service there once. I did write the manager and got no response which is not good, but that was one visit out of many.

This restaurant automatically adds an 18% gratuity on to your check. The service I received was not worth it but, to add insult to injury, they calculate the 18% AFTER ADDING ON THE TAX. Since the servers do not serve "tax", they are not entitled to a gratuity on it. Anyone who knows the restaurant business knows this is improper... More

Fire Balls????? No way. Couldn't detect any "fire" Even after re-reading the menu description, what I was served did not match. My daughter ordered Shrimp Tempura Combo. Salad had the basic ginger/soy sauce dressing, nothing distinctive. Shrimp and Scallop Tempura were very good she said. House Cab passable...nothing special.

The teppanyaki here puts other Japanese cook-in-front-of-you restaurants to shame. The quality of the food is so much higher! The sushi is delicious and there is an extensive menu of other items including filet mignon and french fries for the kids.

Wazzabi is located across the street from Winter Park Village and not far from the chic downtown area. Wazzabi has a clean and cozy atmosphere. On our visit our server did not quite understand our questions or requestsand as a matter of fact it was very difficult to understand what he was saying with his very heavy accent. We did... More

I was a little surprised to see some of the more recent reviews, which seemed negative. My wife and I ate at Wazzabi last Friday night and we were very impressed with the quality and quantity of food. The place is not cheap, so it might be best to save it for a special occasion, but the ambience is terrific,... More

Spent a lot and the sushi wasn't that great......I got the volcano roll and shrimp tempura ....nothing special and overpriced for an average sushi roll....the only good ones are the expensive ones......and the coconut shrimp was over price for four little pieces....for 9 dollars......really? Do not eat here........you... More
