Description: The only thing primitive about Wildfish Seafood Grille is the swimmingly fresh seafood -- mostly caught the day before and shipped next day on ice. Otherwise, this cosmopolitan bistro is as sophisticated as any fine eatery in New York or Vegas. Burnished wood, dim theatrical lighting, cozy tables, a stylish exhibition kitchen and central bar with several TVs available to catch the game embellish the interior. Veteran restaurateurs Guy Villavaso and Larry Foles (Z'Tejas, Eddie V's Edgewater Grille) have created a fierce seafood-steakhouse combination, which attracts food-loving couples, ladies on a luxurious night out and sexy singles at the bar. Because Wildfish is not as wallet-busting as similar concepts in the area, go ahead and start with a spicy lump crab cake surrounded in a buttery remoulade sauce. If you're in the mood for steak, pick a finely aged filet, rib eye or veal chop.

A lot of restaurants do either steak or lobster well. This one manages to do both brilliantly. Friendly staff, lively atmosphere and cozy banquettes for romantic snuggling. And right across the street from Fashion Square too!

With good reviews we went to the Wildfish Seafood Grille, but with muted expectations. It's a big, busy place with efficient servers always in motion. The menu was long and had some unusual content with a good wine list. We ordered the Chunk Crab cake and Crab corn chowder for appetizers. The Crab cake was nearly all crabmeat and easily... More

We went on a Sun about 5:30p and the place was crowded. I've been there before and it was wonderful. This night was a disaster from start to finish. Looked like there were only a couple of waitresses and ours came over to gives us water, then took our orders and disappeared forever. We were sharing a tall table with... More

I see I come among a consistent run of 'excellent' reviews. For me, there's nothing terrible about WSG, it is the typical large modern American restaurant, absolutely heaving with people on our Saturday night. We waited in a line to get in and all the people in front of us were attempting to get in with no reservations. All disappointed.... More

We initially came to our reservation looking to eat the Happy Hour oysters. We were seated in the dining room. Our waiter Raul was amazing. After serving our beverages he informed us that we had to sit in bar area for happy hour specials and promptly found us a booth. Rachel took over and was outstanding, attentive and friendly. The...

My husband and I like to try new places we haven't been to before. A couple VPs of my husband's work recommended this place to him for our anniversary. We decided to bring the kids (18 and 20). Upon arrival you are met with very friendly hostesses. They showed us to our seat. They were told ahead of time, by... More

There were four in our party and we ordered a variety of dishes. We started with the wedge salad and crab cakes. The wedge salad was large with crisp bacon strips and a creamy buttermilk chive dressing. The crab cakes were Maryland style with more crab and less fill than I find in many restaurant crab cakes and were very... More

My wife and I have enjoyed several dinners at Wildfish. Whether we sat at the bar, a booth or a large group on the outdoor patio, we have experienced excellent service and food. The fresh seafood and chef's specials are always a good choice. Next time you visit Scottsdale, check it out.
