Any time you feel the need to do something special, visit the Wave Bistro. Great atmosphere, superior food preparation, top notch service, all at a reasonable price. Highly recommend James as a waiter!! Any of the daily specials are highly recommended. Recently tried the gumbo, and it was excellent.

This is a restaurant that we actually discovered on TA. We made reservations for New Years Eve and we were glad that we did. Despite being very busy, the service was pretty good with multiple people checking on us throughout our time there. My wife had the Midori drink which she enjoyed. We had the crab rangoon which they made... More

We travel from Canada to Denver twice a year and part of our planning is to get to Omaha and have dinner at the WAVE CAFE. Although it is in an unassuming location, it is worth any extra mileage you have to put on. Food is outstanding (hard to beat). Service is top notch with great owner interest/interaction. We always... More

Another wonderful meal at The Wave Bistro. Calamari was delicious - crisp slightly spicy with two sauces: hot mustard & red cocktail sauce, Then we shared Lemon Chicken and Chilean Seabass with Miso marinade - both delicate and wonderful. I ordered the Sichuan Pad Thai with Chicken. Mild flavored thin glass noodles tons of tender chicken, but for such a... More

The only thing I can say about the two negative reviews below, besides please don't take their advice, is they must just be the typical negative diner no one can please. The type that shows up with no reservation on a weekend, and is shocked they don't get everything they want immediately. I read the remark about the limited menu.... More

The food is always fresh and fabulous. They make you feel right at home and their customer service is outstanding. We eat out regularly and this place is always on our list. I highly recommend the duck and the sea bass. Ask for James he is a supurb waiter. Their wine tasting dinners are a wonderful experience too.

I've been to this restaurant twice now and both times I experienced excellent food and service. The crab ragoons are out of this world! The entrees were delicious as well. It's a nice place to relax and enjoy some good Chinese food. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone that loves Chinese food and excellent service. :)

Alright, where do I begin? We walk in and they don't know what they're doing, who's serving who, etc. The place is TINY, not to mention completely filled with people screaming and loud servers. We take our chances and wait to be seated by a lady who isn't very polite. A couple behind us left after waiting, and the girl... More

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.
