We went to Wave Bistro on a whim after a movie tonight. I had seen that Wave was #1 on TripAdvisor before, but I didn't know anyone who had actually been there. Honestly, I wasn't even sure what kind of food was served here. When we walked in we were graciously greeted by Connie who seemed so genuinely happy that... More

This is a very elegant little bistro in a strip mall. The service is fantastic, and their menu offerings are all fantastic. My absolute favorite dishes are their Lemon Creamy Almond Shrimp, and their fried fish fillet. I believe they also have a full bar.

Had reservations for early on Friday night. The place was empty when we arrived and not very full when we left an hour and a half later. Nice decor. With only 2 tables I would have thought we could get a drink and an appetizer order placed quickly but it took about 10 minutes for our server to finally inquire.... More

We went here because I am 1: an avid researcher when it comes to going on vacation and 2: a person who will not go to a crappy Chinese buffet but whose husband loves Chinese and, whereby, rarely gets to eat it. I write reviews usually anyway but especially wanted to write this review due to how they treated us... More

we went because it was the top rated restaurant on TripAdvisor. about 14 miles from Old Market area hotels. The waitress was excellent, the food good but it just wasn't that much better than any good Asian restaurant.

I Love the Wave Bistro. This was my third visit although my husband and his family have returned more times than I all of us enjoy the food, ambiance and service. Don't let the location discourage a try. It's worth the effort to find. Can't wait to return.

Not heavily advertised, next to Home Depot where you would not expect to have this small and excellent restaurant with modern Asian cuisine. We love to stop there for casual, yet quite elegant dinner. By now we have been there ten times or more. Excellent service. Prices are moderate but you get served on china, table cloth (personally do not... More

Food is good for this price point. Went for lunch and they weren't very full. Speed of the staff could be improved.

My husband and I recently discovered Wave Bistro. It has become one of our favorite places to go for date night. The service is perfect, the food is amazing, and the atmosphere is great. It is a little place in a strip mall. Don't let that deceive you into thinking it won't be that great. This place is wonderful. They... More

My husband and I visited Wave Bistro for lunch on a recent trip to Omaha. We were a little surprised by the fact that it was nestled into a strip mall (Although honestly nearly every restaurant we tried while we were there WAS in a strip mall.) It was a quiet time of day, and it was apparent that excellent... More
