This is one of my favorite places to eat in all of New Orleans. Our friends live in the quarter close by, and many locals visit as well on a regular basis. The sushi is phenomenal, the wait staff is attentive, the drinks are perfect, and the regular entrees taste great. I tried numerous types of sushi and wasn’t disappointed.... More

Listen to me. Order the BBQ Eel sushi, the Frenchmen Scallops, the Wasabi House Roll, and the Baked Salmon. I'm trying to remember the names of all of the delicious dishes I've tried over my countless visits, but it's all a blur and I blame the sake. When visiting, please understand that this is NOT fast food. This is good... More

I enjoyed the food, but was ery unhappy with the treatment of patrons. When I got there the dining room was 3/4 empty. The waiter wanted to seat me at a two top on the wall, and I asked for one of the four tops. He wasn't haing any of it. They weren't at all busy. Then when I was... More

Went there for lunch during the French Quarter Festival and had great food in a quiet atmosphere, away from the maddening crowd of the Jazz Festival. Portions were large. Had the Assorted Tempura while husband had the Steak Teriyaki. Loved the Lychee Martini made with Sake.

I came in at 8pm on a Thursday night. The lounge was virtually empty and the restaurant was about half full, although most were already eating. I ordered the honey shrimp appy and some sushi rolls. The appy was good but after a 45 minute wait, the rolls were not quite as good as your average mall food court serves.... More

Everything our table ordered was good but I have to compliment, especially, their Gyoza. One of my favorite dishes to order and often disappointing - but not at Wasabi!! It was outstanding. Thank you for getting it right.

Have read other reviews. but I must disagree. The problem may have been timing or a spat among the staff. Our trip was just average at best. The fish was fresh for the most part. We had a piece or two that had passed prime. Our server seemed to have a burr in his saddle giving us minimal attention. He... More

We were hungry late(ish) at night and had been up and down Frenchmen Street looking for someplace without a line that wasn't too crowded and noisy. Frenchman was a blast with lots of people and music, but after a long night of it we wanted somewhere a little quieter. Wasabi was perfect for this. Sushi was very good and incredibly... More
