I absolutely loved this place! I had the lychee martini and it was wonderful. I also tried some kind of dynamite shrimp roll and spicy seafood with aioli. I would caution that my spicy was not at all spicy, but the food was amazing. The service was also wonderful. My waiter was friendly, helpful and professional. My water glass was... More

Have been here twice and the food is consistently good. I love the cashew crusted salmon filet and the food presentation is excellent. I have never been disappointed with the food here. You will be pleasantly surprised if you have never been here before.

Met my SO last night at Wave Bristo at 144 and Maple and had previewed the menu, so we order and got what we had planned. I had the Gumbo and GF had the Cashew crusted Salmon. As I was early ordered the dumplings and they were well prepared, ample serving and beautifully presented. I had the extra chili sauce... More

This is a small family ran restaurant that serves quality, fresh food that is what I call Chinese Fusion. You can get your traditional Chinese fares here or some unique items. All done very, very well.

Wave Bistro is a family-owned, upscale place that specializes in modern Asian-inspired cuisine. I've had dinner here several times and the quality of the food has always been very good. The owners and staff are also friendly and professional.

Looks like an upscale Oriental eatery on the inside but prices are that of a fast food equivalent. Food is great. Lots of choices- vegetarian, pork, seafood, chicken etc. food prepared fresh and it looks so elegant. I had teriyaki chicken- a whole chicken breast sliced over broccoli. Lunch comes with entree rice (steamed or fried) soup or salad. The... More

The down side: the szechwan chicken had way too many bell peppers which was not listed as an ingredient in the dish and lacked the spice that I associate with szechwan. The cashew crusted salmon did contain a few bones. Service can take some time. The good side: both dishes were good the salmon better than the chicken. The presentations... More

I've driven by this place numerous times and never thought to check it out until this weekend. I can't believe I've been missing this restaurant! We started with delicious drinks from an extensive menu. We ordered crab cakes as an appetizer and they didn't disappoint. Loved them! I got the cashew crusted salmon (yummy) and my husband got the chicken... More
