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

The food at Wabi Sabi is good and the deserts are fabulous! The chef is very creative when it comes to the desert. The food is good, but it can be hit or miss, especially if it is the weekend and you are eating downstairs. They have live entertainment on the weekends. The sushi is very good and I would... More

To keep this short and sweet, If you want sushi go to Martins Grocery store. Their sushi is better than wabi sabi's at about a third of the price. Server was slow and rude, Will not be back.

The staff for the most part was friendly and the food was ok but really expensive for what you got. Some local beer and drafts as well as a cocktail list. Not the best sushi but a nice place for Petersburg VA.

I love the historical feel of the building. Pleasant staff. Sitting downstairs requires a walk down steep steps, be prepared for that if you want to go down there. And the restroom is located on the first floor. It was cool temps down there, which I loved. Low lighting. A little noisy, but still able to carry on conversations. A... More
