Ok. Now that that's out of my system. Do you see that menu? The sushi menu is a big page of pictures. I know it's pretty kindergarten, but I love it. I get to know exactly what my roll will look like. And I must say, the sushi chefs hit the mark. It isn't like ordering a 7 layer burrito at Taco Bell and realizing that it doesn't look a thing like the picture on the drive-thru wall.
While we were waiting (and waiting) for our food we had some sake. The sake arrived at our table quickly and was hot. The food, not so much. My friends who were regulars insisted that this was a freak occurrence and the food usually comes quickly. Well they were slammed this Saturday night. Two sushi chefs, two waitresses and every table was full. Oh oh. The natives were getting restless.
So I'll admit, I hate to give bad reviews. Especially when the food is so good, like in Wild Wasabi's case. I just couldn't get over the massive wait for dinner. I think I would have felt better about the wait if they told us what was happening, brought us an appetizer on the house, or comped our drinks as a mia culpa. I felt that the staff could have done a bit more. Yesterday I decided to give Wild Wasabi another shot and I went back for their famous lunch buffet.
So, to sum it up, the sushi at Wild Wasabi is very good. The lunch buffet is great and a really good deal if you ask me (plus there is no waiting for your food). I feel like I need to go back on a weekend night and see how the service is. But, I'm still a fan.
