Wabi Sabi rocks.

Amazing menu and atmosphere. Great owner, knows how to run a 1st class place. Prices are good, drinks are better.

My husband and I have visited Wabi Sabi many times, either with our children or with friends. Every experience has been great. The food is always exceptional. When people ask where to get a tasty bite in Petersburg, I recommend Wabi. The mushroom Swiss burger is my favorite. I've had other dishes but that is by far the best! Juicy,... More

What a great little place this is! I met a friend for lunch and found the food to be excellent--service excellent--price reasonable--location historically charming (that's a thing that I search for!) in an old building I'd recommend this place without reservation

No one in our party had sushi which is their specialty, but we all enjoyed our entrees and appetizers. We had everything from Edamame to wings to seafood to burgers. Food was good and the service was great! Local band plays every Wednesday night and they were awesome! We had a great time and we will be back!

I am not as picky as a lot of people when it comes to sushi so this is hard to write. I ordered a Dragon roll and some miso soup. The sushi rice was way too wet and wasn't cooked correctly. The eel was disappointing and the tempura shrimp was low quality. The miso was more than likely from a... More

I have heard so many people say great things about this place that I finally tried it. My family and I ordered 4 sushi dishes. It took them almost an hour to make our order and they messed one of them up twice. The sushi was not that great, almost on the level of a grocery store sushi. I will... More

Wonderful selection of sushi and other unique flavors. The atmosphere is wonderful, it's clean but not stuffy. A great selection of wine and full bar. The wait staff is almost always friendly and attentive. Great flavors. So why 4 out of 5 rating. It's a bit expensive. So a dinner for two with a few drinks can be close to... More

This was far and away the best sushi restaurant that I have ever been to. Your management and staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was nothing short of fantastic. If you get a chance just as a place not to miss.

This is a really cool place located in Old Towne Petersburg. It's kinda divided up into three sections. The main dining area when you first walk in. That's where you can see the sushi being made! Then the other section upstairs has a bar area as well as live music quite often. Then downstairs is my favorite! It's such a... More
