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.

This was my first visit to Wildfish. I had made a reservation and was seated right away. The meal started with a bit of a warning flag when the pot stickers we ordered turned out to be overcooked and dry. I've gotten better pot stickers at Costco. I was hoping the rest of the meal wasn't going to be like... More

My wife and I where out w friends and ordered an entree shrimp and crab salad. There where 2 shrimp that were mushy, a table spoon of crab. The dressing was an abysmal addition to a totally lackluster salad. two sugared walnuts and a handful of semi wilted greens. The worst part was when we mentioned it to the manager... More

Wildfish has some very good dishes and some not so good. My wife and I were at the bar having a drink and the people next to us had Halibut and it smelled so fishy we had to move seats. Some times when the food is devilered to the bar and tables, the fishy smell is very strong. Even with... More

My husband and I dined here this evening without reservations and sat outside on the patio which was nice. Our waiter was Colton and he was so personable, funny and informative. He was an excellent waiter. All waiters should train with Colton!!! He told us the specials and made recommendations for both of us. My husband had the 16 oz.NY... More

I was a guest last night - a Friday - at a dinner party whose host often dines at Wildfish. There were 7 of us and we were given a nice roomy round table. We had a reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival and all greeted with friendly welcoming smiles. It was very lively but not too loud. Our... More

Took 8 people here and everyone thoroughly enjoyed. I had the Sea Bass which was phenomenal. Others had Filet, Swordfish, all reported they were delicious. Apps also good. Try the spicy Rappini.

Wildfish has a great selection of fresh seafood... not easy to come by in Arizona. They also have a great wine selection to accompany their food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for excellent service, selection and quality of fresh seafood.

Atmosphere was great, staff was very friendly and offered a superior experience for us. Flavors in everything were superb, my steak was perfectly prepared, and if I am in the mood to spend that kind of money on a meal, I would certainly choose Wildfish. Appetizers are spectacular and could make a fine entree if someone is wanting to try... More

This restaurant is directly across from the Scottsdale Fashion Square so you can park in the garage behind Nordstrom and walk over here. We used OpenTable to book the reservation - worked great and our server greeted us by name when he came to the table (Drew - awesome service!). We were a bit surprised by the rather pricey entree...

Odd to me that the menu is very similar to Eddie V's.... In any case, as you would expect, attentive service and good menu. With the higher end prices, you pay for what you get...and so this is a good option. The decor is fairly standard generic....homogenous with the bit higher end restaurants. We did enjoy our meal but again... More
