Friendly staff, very good food, and live jazz! Not a bad selection of wines. Sushi is very good. They are also very accommodating about arranging tables to suit.

The service and meals were excellent. We ordered two bento box dinners for the variety and both were very good.

Sans conteste le meilleur sushi bar d'Ottawa. Depuis que nous sommes dans la région, nous avons essayé tout plein de restos (et il y en a des très bons, contrairement à ce que bien des gens peuvent croire), mais aucun n'a encore égalé le Wasabi.

I've visited Wasabi many times and really like the innovative and unique sushi rolls. I brought my family there for Mother's Day. The restaurant was not as busy as usual but the service was very slow. We waited almost an hour for our appetizers and many of the items we ordered were missing. The rolls we ordered looked like they were not rolled properly and fell apart on the plate. I was disappointed by the service last evening. It is usually pretty quick and well presented.

Good location and service but while nominally Japanese, it's not very authentic.

Nous avons vécu une très mauvaise expérience au restaurant Wasabi. Nous nous sommes laissés tenter par le menu Isakaya et des ramens. Les Ribs de bœuf étaient si coriaces que nous n'avons pu en avaler un morceau. Le tartare de thon était correct, mais la portion était ridicule. Nos soupes étaient immangeables : les nouilles industrielles étaient trop cuites et le bouillon infecte. Lorsque la serveuse est venue débarrasser et a constaté que nous n'avions rien mangé, nous lui avons poliment dit que la nourriture n'était vraiment pas bonne et elle nous a répondu qu'elle était désolée. Nous avons payé l'entièreté de notre facture, même si nous n'avons rien mangé et jamais le patron n'est venu nous voir. Nous nous sommes vraiment sentis comme dans un "attrape touriste".
