Comment: I had a great experience at this Wasabi location. They had a happy hour deal on sushi rolls and I tried a few different kinds. Seriously amazing and delicious! Fresh . The cocktails were fantastic and Jade is a mixing pro! The service from everyone was top notch,Nick took care of us and is awesome. They had live music on Thursday which was just right. Really nice atmosphere, laid back but also elevated at the same time. Will be back soon.

Comment: This is a good-ish sushi spot for a casual lunch. If your focus is less on the food and quality of the ingredients and more on business conversation or the like you’ll do just fine here. If you start looking more closely you’ll feel as did, disappointed and not eager to return. The service was quality, but unfortunately this is more a ‘fast casual’ style of maki sushi than anything else.

Comment: Lol this place took a literal hour to make vegetable rolls and a spicy salmon roll. Place was mostly empty. The servers are all rude. Didn’t even ask if we wanted water. Checked on us once but only cause I came in and asked for water. Had to go inside for a check too. Worst random two hours I’ve had in a while lol. Finally food came out and the fish literally smelt old. This place lol. Go for a laugh

Comment: Very strange experience at this Wasabi location. We went at about 6pm on Saturday and the place was very nearly empty. In spite of that, the music was blaring - so much so that we had to relocate tables to be further from a speaker. Server kept citing problems with a new system that resulted in us getting an incorrect order. And the food was mediocre - noodles were undercooked, sushi was poorly rolled, beer was flat. Sad to say that we wont be back.

Comment: Horrible experience, and the food matched. My wife, daughter, and I went to eat here and were extremely disappointed. My daughter and I ordered an entree and my wife got a sushi roll They bring both the entrées out and do not bring out my wifes sushi and then about 10 minutes later they tell us the sushi roll is almost done, and the kitchen was just ahead of schedule. Then about another 15 minutes later ,after my daughter and I are about done with our food, they tell us that theyre missing ingredients for my wife sushi roll. Its not a big deal to not have the ingredients but to wait till everybody in the party is done eating before you let us know is a problem. To top it off the food is not worth the money you will spend. I spent almost 20 bucks for some chicken and a cup of steamed rice which was meh at best!

Comment: Having previously enjoyed sushi at their other locations, my recent visit here left much to be desired. Unfortunately, this particular establishment fell short of my expectations in several aspects.We ordered the gyoza soup with high hopes. However, when it arrived, it was disappointingly cold. I promptly asked the server to reheat it, hoping for a quick resolution. Unfortunately, even after reheating, the soup had an off-putting sour taste to it.The sushi, which should have been the highlight, turned out to be incredibly flavorless and loosely rolled. It left me wishing I had opted for the sushi at a nearby Whole Foods, which I found to be far more enjoyable and conveniently located just a short drive away.The service was okay.I am going to go make an actual lunch now.

Comment: The food is very good but the service is not up to the bar. Me and many people have to wait for a very long time to get the order, it took them 1 and a half hours to finish my order and it seems the kitchen is very slow. Hopefully the experience will be better next time.

Wished this one would be better but it failed 😔. Good luck Wasabi Cortex. Reference: we were two adults one teen. Bill was over 120.

Comment: We decided to try a new restaurant near us, and the minute I walked in the energy of the room seemed as though none of the staff wanted to be there. While our order was being taken we were curious about saki and other stuff on the menu and the waiter had no patience to explain anything, her tone of voice was very rude. We hoped for the best once we ordered but was disappointed the minute we tried the salad.( we ordered crab ragoon, avocado sushi, salmon and chicken) the authenticity of the food was not there nor was the flavor. No one checked on us and the proportion was not at all worth the money.We were very disappointed with our visit tonight and will not be back.

Comment: The sushi was just ok at best. We tried getting Rangoon’s and they weren’t able to get them to the table before they were cold and hard twice. So took them of my ticket. It was 30 min before close and was told it was last call and they were more focused on closing down than taking care of the customers there. Not worth the money. Sorry…won’t be back.

Comment: Yep!Edit 6/16/2022 :after a year the service and portions have declined. Save your money and go elsewhere. The waitstaff could careless if the order is right or wrong. Mine was incorrect and she took it off the receipt. They dont check on you but want you pay up after your first couple of bites. Its my fault for coming here. I am done with this place for a while or for good.

Comment: Wonderful atmosphere and lovely people working there. A fair warning, though Tuesday is their cheaper menu day, the wait is longer. This is not the downside, however. If you have reading accessibility needs such as large print or braille, that is not offered.An Edit: The locations have been working on accommodations for blind attendees.

Comment: We had an awesome server, yummy sushi, perfect nigiri, delicious crab rangoon, and the deep fried gyoza was so perfectly crispy and flavorful (Ive only ever had steamed or pan fried gyoza, so that was a real treat)! What a great variety of rolls, plus many other food options if someone in your dinner party isnt a fan of fish or seafood. Definitely my favorite Wasabi location! Ive now been to all the different Wasabi locations and this one is unique in the very best way! Thank you guys for a wonderful dining experience!

The food was very tasty, well presented and fast. There were some menu items that they were out of - including spicy tuna, which was a bummer.

Comment: Ive enjoyed takeout from Wasabi Sushi previously, and its always amazing, so Sunday night I ordered in through DoorDash.I ordered the vegetable tempura, crab rangoon, the Mr. Kim roll, and the Washington roll. Their vegetable tempura is a very large order. The crab rangoon was also yummy. I loved both rolls, especially with the wasabi mayo on the side. I like Wasabi Sushis menu--I dont think Ive ever ordered the same roll twice.

Comment: I ordered the salmon fillet (medium cooked) with asparagus and rice for take out, and was unpleasantly surprised that a) the salmon was as dry as can be (well done might be an understatement) b) the piece of salmon was about half the size of what I expected (half the size of my palm) c) the miso soup was saltier than any other miso soup Ive ever had and simply not edible and d) the asparagus was missing altogether. Needless to say that the $19 did not reflect the quality and quantity of food I received. Highly disappointing.Update: Google review response including offer to make things right is well received, though considering I was there for a weekend trip, its irrelevant. Food quality is still subpar, and considering the price still disappointing.

Comment: My partner and I went to eat at Wasabi Sushi Bar Cortex about a week ago. This was our first time eating here and it was definitely an experience. Were definitely going back! The ambiance of this place was sexy to me. It was amazing. Our waitress was very polite and attentive. This was the first time Id ever had a salmon poke bowl with spicy mayo and Ive been craving that bowl ever since. It was so dang good. My partner had a sushi roll called Girl on Fire and that thing was literally on fire when he got it. It was something to see this. All I can say is AMAZING! Youve gotta experience this once you visit. You will not be disappointed. They also have an outside bar with tables for those who may want to enjoy on the patio. It was cold when we went so the outside patio wasnt open.The parking here was right outside the door with a lot shared with the hotel next door. There was also street metered parking just in case the lot is full. It even had plug ins for electric cars to charge. I was like whoa how cool is this! You do have to wear a mask upon entry. Theres hand sanitizers readily available if you need it. This place is wheelchair accessible. Its family friendly as we saw a few families there with small kiddos. Wasabi Sushi Bar Cortex is a great place to experience with good food. We can wait to return.#Tonetta

Comment: Staying at the Aloft Cortex next door we thought this was the perfect place to order dinner from. We got sushi and edamame. Sushi tasted fresh and the edamame was well cooked. They forgot to give us chopsticks and soy sauce as we ordered to go, which resulted in us having to leave our hotel room to wait in line to get them again, but the food was good. A little pricey but it’s a trade off with not having to drive or order delivery.

Comment: My experience at this restaurant was nothing short of amazing. Not only was the food wonderfully prepared, fresh, and timely but the service was incredible. Lorna, the friendliest bartender I ever met, seemed to know what I wanted before I even asked which speaks volumes about her experience and the restaurants expectations for customer service. And to make my experience even better the ambiance and music selection was perfect! 10/10 will definitely go again some day.

The manager and staff want you to enjoy this space and their food, so they will do whatever it takes to make you happy and comfortable - dont like cucumber? Sub mango, problem solved. Best White Tiger Roll of any in the chain.

Comment: We just discovered the Wasabi Cortex restaurant in early fall and it rapidly became our favorite restaurant. We enjoyed their patio in nicer weather and now are savoring indoor dining experiences. The food is delicious and we very much love the Bento boxes. Prices are reasonable, the menu is extensive and portions are generous. There is an extremely cordial and welcoming atmosphere. Most of all, the service is impeccable. We have had Lorna as our server on numerous occasions and she is excellent, gracious and highly welcoming. We cannot say enough positive comments about this restaurant, its accommodating, excellent staff, and the delicious food.

Comment: Update: The order wasnt great, but the customer service is. They made the situation right, and for that Ive edited my review.The chicken katsu was dry, burnt, and didnt come with katsu sauce. The fried rice tastes weird to me. On a positive note, the salmon sashimi and the salad with ginger dressing were good. Overall, it was pricey for the quality of food.

Comment: The sushi I ordered was good. However, ordering ahead, getting there on time, and having to wait 25 minutes past the promise time during lunch break is not ideal. Can’t say I’ll return if I can’t be sure I’ll have the time to pick it up with it coming out so late…

Comment: Menu is pretty extensive, you can find plenty to eat even if you dont enjoy sushi/nigiri. The waitress was phenomenal, she even took the time to circle all food options that would be safe for my pregnant wife. My only complaint is service was somewhat slow, we were one of 10 people in the restaurant at that time of night and service still took almost 30 minutes to bring out food after we ordered.

Comment: I tried to walk in recently, with at least an hour left before close, just a table for 3. We wait at the door for a while before a server says something along the lines of “someone will be with you shortly”. This is all fine, and we expect to be seated at some point since there are maybe 3 tables inside (from what we could see) and only 1 or 2 outside, the patio is visible when you walk in. We even felt kind of bad because we saw how few tables were there and thought they were closing within a few minutes, so we checked the hours to be sure that wasn’t the case.Then a few more minutes later the host (probably) comes up to us and says that they’re no longer seating anyone because “the food won’t be ready until after the restaurant closes”. This is what got me. Everyone I was with had worked in restaurants and never heard of that sort of policy. If we are still open, we might* warn you of a long wait for food, but we’ll still seat you and serve you until you’re done - like imagine it being after close at a restaurant and a table was seated late and you tell them they can’t have dessert. Maybe Wasabi would do that actually. :’)I wonder what would happen if someone had already been seated and they didn’t place their order in time. “Sorry, you’ve gotta go that won’t be ready until after we want to go home”.Anyway, apparently this location takes over an hour for rolls to come out.

Comment: This is a great Wasabi location! I have now had Wasabi from Rock Hill, Wasabi from Clayton, and Wasabi from the Cortex. Hands-down, the Cortex rolls were assembled better and tighter - much easier to enjoy at the Park. Plus the taste was super fresh. I’m not sure what Clayton is doing wrong, but the same rolls tasted stale/fishy, and they fell apart as soon as you picked them up. It made an expensive mess, and we won’t return to that location.If you have the luxury of choosing the location - go with the Cortex. You won’t regret it!

Comment: Now I understand why it wasnt busy at 7:30 on a Friday night.Took >20 minutes to get our appetizer, didnt get our full order until we reminded the server, and my entrea had been sitting so long that the outside of the rice was starting to harden, the broccoli was basically a paste, the meat was room temperature, and the sushi was warm.There were maybe 5 tables there, so they werent particularly busy.

Comment: Food is good. Service is pretty bad. Servers didnt do anything wrong, per say but the wait times were atrocious. We came on a Sunday around 6pm. There was only 3 tables including our own and somehow the food took over an hour to come out. As we sat and waited, we watched numerous tables get seated, sit for a but of time without being helped and they just got up and left. Which in hindsight, we probably should have done the same thing.

Comment: We had an incredible meal here. We came in to celebrate the birth of our son before heading back over to the hospital and our food was by far the best thing either of us have had in longer than I can remember. Our waitress was lovely and when she realized why we were celebrating she gave us a free dessert of our choice to congratulate us. Everything tasted amazing, drinks included, and the presentation provided beautiful pictures for us to put in our baby memory book to mark our celebration dinner. Thank you!

Comment: I was able to EASILY swing by this place on the way home from work to pick up my carry out order. There was ample parking (probably because it was 6pm in Cortex). The restaurant seemed clean. I guess they are carry out and delivery only right now?? They have a nice space for dining in and tables outside (with umbrellas). During normal times - it would be a great place for dine in.We ordered shrimp tempura roll, vegetable roll and shrimp fried rice. I’m not a sushi expert but it was really good. The sushi held up fairly well for take out. The shrimp tempura roll was my favorite!The service was good. I had to call in my order because the online ordering would not allow orders to be place in advance. I think that was a one-off. The phone was answered promptly so no problems with calling in my order.I have a feeling I will get carry out from this restaurant at least once a month. It was super convenient. Plus we enjoyed the food.Apparently this restaurant is locally owned. I’m happy to support them!!

Comment: We were very impressed by Wasabi -- just not in a good way. We ordered online with bring to your car delivery and were immediately notified that our food would be ready for pickup at 5:31 pm. Not around 5:30 but 5:31. We live close by and arrived at 5:18. They texted us a link: Click this link when you get here. We clicked the link at 5:28. At 5:46 we were still waiting, as other customers came and went. Finally my wife said Im going in. At first there was no one greeting customers, then their very nice front of the house person came out, took our name and said our order was not ready. After a while it finally got assembled. At that point the hot items of our dinner were warm and so were the cold items. The stuffed avocado was weird and the edamame was lacking the coarse salt it is usually served with. We had tipped 22% -- on a pick-up order -- when we placed it because we wanted to support a locally owned restaurant. In return they let us down.

Comment: The customer service at this location is first class! It started with the bartender with the first name L. She was very personable and a good mixologist; I felt right at home! The sushi was excellent and of high quality. Its very affordable but no matter the price, it was worth every penny! I highly recommend the C.J. Special Roll. It will not stay on your plate for long! Even the Covid protocols were followed by the entire staff and customers. Literally, everything about the experience was quite remarkable. Thank you, Wasabi Sushi! I will be back for more!

Comment: When I lived at SIUE a couple years ago, the Wasabi in Edwardsville was always one of my favorite places to eat. After moving back home, I was bummed because I wasn’t close to any locations. Few months back, I moved to Central West End and I was literally wondering if there was a Wasabi open up yet. A couple weeks ago Im looking for sushi and low and behold, Wasabi Cortex magically appeared. I’ve been there 3 times now for pick up, its 3/3!!! I guess the chain is super consistent regardless the location, and now theres good competition for sushi in the area!

Comment: If youre ordering for takeout, you can order sauces for a fee, but the menu items come with at least one portion, so you might not need them.
