The wonton soup is fantastic

We always enjoy the food, service, and personal care that the Wave gives. I love the Wonton soup- it is a meal in itself. The Wave has satisfying dishes for both carnivores and veggie only. My wife and I usually get an entree and a soup and split them, and we still take some home. When I think... read more

Don't be put off by the Wave's location, a strip mall close to a Home Depot. Once you walk in the door, its a whole other world. Fresh, clean and tastefully decorated, the casual atmosphere makes you hungry, and the easy-going pleasant hostess (owner) instantly lowers your blood pressure. The menu is not a beef-lover's dream, but the Asian dishes... More

Our lunch was wonderful! I recommend the Lemon Creamy Almond Shrimp. It was the favorite at our table. Our food took a little while, but we were in no hurry and the service was very attentive in the mean time.

What a wonderful place to take your family to. Waitress was very attentive to my son who has special needs. The chef greeted us at the door and made us feel comfortable. His wife was very warm and friendly. The food was out of this world. My husband ordered the lamb. The crust on the lamb was mouthwatering. As soon... More

This restaurant has received high marks from others and now I know why. The menu is creative and the food is excellent. On a previous visit a long time ago, my wife and I found the music to be difficult and they appear to have fixed that. Service was terrific, as our server was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend... More

Another fantastic dinner at Wave with James, Connie and George! We started out with a bottle of the Simi Landslide, the lettuce wraps and our new favorite soup "wave wonton". The ingredients for every dish are always so fresh tasting and everything is seasoned to perfection. I had the halibut and my husband had the sea-bass. James recommended that my... More

The title tells it all. I had folks 55, 85, and 90 with me, and they all loved their entrees. The salmon fried roll is wonderful. I had curry chicken-it was flavorful and mildly spicy, the chicken was fresh, as were the green beans. One of us had the garlic basil crusted chicken, which was delicious (I had a bite).... More

We have been to Wave Bistro before and has been one of our favorite places but . . . not this last time. It was just a very weird vibe last Saturday Night. We had actually made reservations because I know how busy they get. When we walked in the ladies at the front seemed very frustrated. We waiting about... More

I cannot think of any negatives on this place. The crab cakes are perfect. I have got other dinners, scallops, Szechuan beef, (all good) but I love the cashew crusted Salmon. I usually get it on fried rice, comes with asparagus and sauce. The salmon piece is huge. Its fantastic. They also give you light bread roll when you sit... More
