Visited with my wife for lunch. We ordered off the lunch menu. My wife had a Caterpillar Roll and I had the Two Roll Combo, a Tuna Roll and a California Roll. The food was fresh and tasty and delivered very timely. Presentation was pretty ordinary. Our server, a young lady, was very friendly contributing to an overall positive experience.... More

Restaurant very popular with locals. We walk to it couple times a month. Reservations needed on weekends. Lunch menu is very good and inexpensive . Good rolls on happy hour. Fresh sushi.

I love Wakame. I come here about once a week for the Hot Spicy Girl roll either alone or with my family ... so we consider ourselves locals! Just so good! Every. time. Great value lunches and always happy hour before 6pm. Patio is nice in summer too.

Nice sushi, great atmosphere. Overall good experience. Parking is a little difficult but otherwise better than at the West End.

Happy hour prices make this a steal. Crazy monkey roll and the eel sauce made this place a new go to for us. Love this place!

I went to this restaurant with friends during happy hour. We had couple of different sushi rolls, miso soup and green tea. The food was fresh but average but the service was less than competent. I have had better sushi other places and much better service. I am not going back.

Nice restaurant with pleasant atmosphere. Kind of was a little bit too busy for Monday night, but I guess it more plus, then minus. It shows you it's a good place to visit. Food was excellent. Definitely will come again.

My first visit to this restaurant was with a couple of friends. We went during happy hour (9:30pm-closing), we couldn't believe it was so packed on a Tuesday night! To order they provide a happy hour menu which you fill out. Since all the sushi rolls have nicknames we had to check the menu, back and forth, to decide. I... More

I've been going to Wakame for at least four years now. The food has always been wonderful, the happy hour worth the deal, and the atmosphere friendly. If you are going on a busy weeknight, be prepared to wait!! They do take-out as well, though it's not as good as dining in, I think. Order the Clumsy Chicken (not on... More
