    Don’t bother signing up for an “experience” because there isn’t anything special about it. Sat at the sushi bar and wouldn’t recommend sitting there because service was spotty and nothing about sitting there made the meal more memorable. Wouldn’t recommend going here over any other sushi restaurant in Seattle.

    Best sushi in Seattle. Only knocking off a star because I ordered an espresso martini and was brought a "Rabusto," which tasted terrible. The Japanese vodka, mixed with the Borghetti espresso liquor gave the drink a floral/fruity mixed with coffee taste. To further confuse the drink, it also had cream from a can in it, which gave it a sour taste. I wish the waiter would have told me I was getting their signature cocktail instead of a regular espresso martini. Order any of their sushi it's delicious, but steer clear of this cocktail.

    Disappointingly the dinner experience at Wasabi Sushi & Izakaya for a birthday was subpar. The food was only fair, nothing special as the price would suggest. Service was meh, our server didn't seem too happy in doing her job. It had been a few years since we enjoyed this place, seems like the neighborhood disintegration has taken a toll on this restaurant operation. It's probably an o.k. place if you sit at the bar and drink, everything looks better & tastes better after a few drinks! For going out to enjoy a nice dinner, this is not the place. Sadly, we will not return and cannot recommend to anyone we care about.

    Poor service. Very poor service. We told the server that our sushi rolls were drowning in the sauce and could eat it. He comped one roll out of the three. He said why didn’t you tell me? Well…if you were around at all during our meal maybe we could have had the chance to tell you. The chicken wings were nothing special. All good was just meh except the rolls which to me were inedible. Not coming back.

    I've always loved the Wasabi restaurant, but hadn't been there since pre-COVID. Happy to say it is still great. We sat at the sushi bar and had multiple appetizers, sushi, sake, beer and desert. Loved it all. Our server was very friendly and attentive. What I miss in general about sushi bars (not just at Wasabi) is that now days they lack the sushi bar experience that I grew up with in which you actually interact directly with the sushi chef, order from the sushi chef, ask them for recommendations for that day, or even let them pick for you. To me THAT is the true "sushi bar experience". Sitting at the sushi bar and ordering from the server, never communicating with the sushi chef is just not the same. You might as well sit at a table.

    Our server wasn't very attentive with checking in on us. Also, our food arrived separately. Mine first then a good 15 min later for my friend's entree. Our 3rd friend never got his dish - the server found it after we canceled his entree and it was getting late. (Server said it was left on top of some counter -- so his meal was sitting out for over an hour while we were waiting). We were very engaged in our conversation at least but ridiculous that we couldn't eat our meals at the same time.

    Really disappointing. The noodle soup had asparagus spears that were basically hard stems and totally inedible. Only one of the dishes we ordered tasted good and it felt like the quality overall was poor. The waitress was nice, but I wouldn't go back.

    The food was good, but it took 30 minutes for someone to take our order, and another 60 minutes for it to come out of the kitchen (only to find at that time that some items were no longer available). It's the slowest service I've received at a restaurant in several years

    Overpriced and entitled and you should just be thankful. Enjoyed my dish but way more costly than same quality similar dish in Vancouver which was surprising. Had outdoor super wobbly table we had to work on to make useable. The service was bad- one of 4 of us waited very long after others served and waiter said nothing when he brought it. Cocktail was not worth it. Sign of the times I guess. Should’ve stayed home

    We had guest from out of town visiting and wanted a nice evening of sushi and drinks. Made a reservation well in advance. We were seated on time but the music was so loud we could not talk. Then no one waited on us. Some came and dropped off a bottle of water after 15 minutes. Then someone came by after sitting for 25 minutes and asked what we wanted to order. We said we needed an explanation of the menu and had some questions. They left and never returned. After 35 minutes of non-service, we just walked out. Will not go back and will not recommend to anyone.

    The tropical salmon carpaccio was excellent. We could have more of that and would have had the rest of our dinner not been so great!! The short ribs were seasoned to perfection and the fish on the nigiri was super fresh!!! We stumbled on Wasabi on a visit to Seattle and will go there again on our next visit.

    Sushi was not good. I eat sushi a lot and this was not good and in fact I didn’t eat half my meal. The sushi order was delivered within a few minutes of ordering which was a little odd. So quick I wonder if it was pre made but I can’t imagine they would do that with the variety of rolls they offer. The entire time I felt rushed like they were trying to turn the table for the next guest even though there was plenty of seats at the time. Disappointing experience.

    I ordered miso soup, a crunch roll, and karaage, all of which were very good. For my main I ordered chicken Teriyaki, a Seattle staple. What arrived at my table very late, was what I would refer to as desiccated chicken stir fry. There was no sauce or discernible flavor. They did replace it and it was acceptable but it took a lot of time and still wasn’t great.
