Well. What a superb find! I had no idea they existed! Went to visit a friend and we ended up going to lunch and she was just driving on a mission. Had no idea where we ere going. She lead us right to Wabi Sabi and in the door we went. We each had a simple glass of sweet red... More

We've been here at least twice and were pleased with the food quality both times. Our service was a little slow, but it was a Saturday night.

Had dinner with my wife and daughter and all I can say is this place was average. We started with crab dip; it was average. I had oysters (good) and a California Roll which was average. The girls each had a hamburger which were average. Nice Old Town building. Dependable service. This place was OK as a "bar food" location.

Have been there a couple times, always delicious...little noisy atmosphere. Many friends have met for dinner and enjoyed as a singles 'meet', also good for couples dinner.

The sushi is good as are some of the appetizers (I recommend the lamb kabobs). The ambiance is nice as well. My only quibble is with the service. They are pleasant and helpful but also slow and disorganized at times.

Wabi Sabi has a fantastic sushi bar but if you want a steak, you can that there, as well. Great place to bring your spouse or date.

I really like going to wabi sabi. This is probably one of the better places that has sushi in the Petersburg area. My favorite sushi roll would have to be the one with smoked salmon and cream cheese. I believe it's called the Manhattan. There's also great wabi-sabi wings as appetizers. Another good appetizer is the crab dip. The distinguished... More

what a fine little spot - so interesting; the decor, the menu, the crowd. you will be looking around the room trying to figure this place out! the food is good, the wait staff is great, can get pricey [sushi] but everything is delicious.

Thank sylvie b
