This was set up by a friend for our social group. I was very hesitant as I am not into Sushi or spicy foods. The menu offered far beyond sushi and everyone enjoyed their dishes. I ordered the Shrimp and Grits and everyone wanted to try my grits. One of our ladies ordered the Mac n Cheese with crab (or... More

My husband and I have been to a lot of sushi places, but this one beats them all by miles. Everything was so fresh and tasty - even the crab meat was real and not imitation. The atmosphere is eclectic and inviting. We sat downstairs and live music started as we were leaving. First sushi place I've seen with such... More

Moldy hamburger bun. Longest sushi wait. 1 hour. Mediocre Food for higher end prices. Will never waste my money there again!

Sushi: 4/5 . The fish were fresh but the taste were not 100% Japanese Customer Service: 4/5. They need more organize when dealing with a big group. They gave wrong foods to people in mu group. Interior design: Excellent with interesting pictures on the wall. Recommend

Petersburg just doesn't get enough credit for what is going on! Wabi Sabi is an example of a hidden venue in plain sight. Truly lives up to its delightful name, accepting the imperfections of the surrounding and bringing joy to Bollingbrook Street! Appropriate for the whole family during the day. Is a party spot at night.

I've had dinner here with friends and also a team working lunch in their basement. Both occasions the service and the food were excellent. Not a huge fan of sushi, but their salads and appetizers offer a great alternative for us non sushi eaters.

We used to go there about every other week, but quit. The last time we were there it was early in the evening, and we were the only customers in the restaurant. The music was too loud, and not the type of music you would enjoy along with dinner. We asked nicely several times if they could please turn it... More

Sushi was outstanding and the service was excellent. Will be dining here again. I like that there were three different seating areas in the restaurant. One was casual, one was more intimate and the third, downstairs, we did not see. Soft music was a plus.

I can't even tell you how amazing the food was before I tell you how hospital the owner/server was. Bartender made drinks to perfection, food was spectacular. I had the steak kabob, shrimp, and a few other sampling and I am still after all these months bragging the accolades of these amazing dishes. Momma had, sushi to her liking and... More
