If you're looking for extremely fresh Japanese cuisine...Wave Bristol on 144th & Maple is the place! Everything thing there is fresh from the salad to the main course. The egg rolls are loaded with meat and vegetables. I could make a meal off the egg rolls alone! The owner and the entire staff are VERY attentive and super nice!

The atmosphere, the quality of food, impeccable service make this a go to restaurant and we are never disappointed. The prices are moderate and if you get the pad thai you can eat a very nice dinner at a very reasonable price. On a Friday night its not packed but its not empty. We especially like the dinner rolls and... More

A great dining experience without the price! I have enjoyed the Wave Bistro several times and have told all my friends to try it. Every time the food has been excellent and the service incredible. Fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Be sure to leave room for any of their excellent deserts! Once you try them you will be back!

Hubby and I tried Wave for the first time last night for dinner. It's in a West Omaha strip mall and when you walk in, it's a pretty fancy set-up. White tablecloths, service plates, etc., but the customers are dressed fairly casually (jeans.) It just struck me as a little odd. The food though, was very good. We had the... More
