Bill's Review of Wave Bistro

Their salmon meal is the most delicious fish meal I have had in a long time. They really prepare correctly and the presentation is supurb!! The taste is delicious and the glaze they put on the top really makes the meal complete. You will love to eat at this wonderful restaurant.

My family has eaten here several times over the year and we love it. The food is fantastic. Every meal I have had has been quite tasty and well-prepared. The service is great and they make sure you are taken care of but they aren't in your face. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Omaha and any chance... More

I hate to say anything bad about this place, because the service really was great. I was honestly just let down by the food. It was a lot of money for mediocre chinese fusion food. I would definitely recommend the appetizers, but skip the entres and go straight to dessert. Great owner, she was very accommodating and cared for her... More

We make sure to eat at Wave every time we are in Omaha. Have not been disappointed yet. Very creative and unique menu, terrific food and great service. We could make a meal out of the Asian rolls, alone.

As Host and Hostess of our Gourmet Club, (seventeen members) preparing fantastic meals for over thirty years, then retiring to the ease of enjoying Omaha's many fine restaurants, we chose The Wave Bistro after stumbling upon it after a movie nearby. Our first experience was so fantastic in this charming establishment that we were hooked. We also followed up our... More

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
