Description: The only thing primitive about Wildfish Seafood Grille is the swimmingly...
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.

Fresh Seafood in the Desert? You Better Believe it!

As I look over my reviews, it seems I truly love something, or I truly do not. My wife and I had originally decided upon going to the Salt Cellar in Scottsdale for our impromptu anniversary dinner (1 year married, 7 together, not a big deal). For some reason, every time I drove past the Salt... read more

I now declare this restaurant my absolute favorite. Great ambiance, dark and cool. And the food? Every time I've been here, the food has been incredible - so fresh, so tasty. They take care to beautifully plate things as well. Service ranges from good to outstanding. Last night hubby and I decided to have an intimate dinner here, celebrating our... More

If you love oysters, this place is for you. They have an oyster bar or you can have them at your table for an extra $ amount. We started with the crab cake appetizer, expensive but a real treat. I had the Scottish salmon with vegetable and a sauce, could not finish so indulged the next day for lunch. My... More

Everything about this place was awesome. Cocktails were perfect and refreshing for 112 degrees outside. Oysters was perfect. Dinners were culinary masterpieces. And, to top it off dessert was sinfully delicious. We are hoping to move to the area and this will be a place we frequent! Service was A+++ as well. Servers name was Micco (?).

For a big room run by a corporate entity, this place runs stunningly smoothly and serves amazing food. The staff are all friendly, knowledgeable, and super professional. And again, for such a large establishment, the customer treatment is unexpectedly personal. I had the most amazing steamed sea bass in a light soy/sherry broth and my wife had the best crisp-roasted... More

What a good restaurant this is. The concierge at the W and some folks on the street tried to steer me to some gastro pub, but I was tempted by the name and then by the menu of the Wildfish Seafood Grille. Who would have guessed that in the middle of the desert one would find really good seafood, but... More

This was my second time dining in this establishment. Very good service! Our server gave several suggestions. The meal was amazing. Try the mojito...super refreshing! I would definitely recommend this place.

This was our first time to this restaurant and the staff outdid themselves to make our anniversary special. We enjoyed ourselves so much and Michelle is the best server there! Food was good all around, but the standout was the Salt and Pepper Shrimp on the Appetizer menu. A little sweet, a little heat, some tenders shrimp, and it all... More

My husband and I dined here on our last night in Scottsdale, and were happy that we did. Service was great and our server was knowledgeable and timely and checked on all of our food due to our nut allergies. I had the special Chilean Sea Bass which was perfectly grilled and full of flavor. He had the 16-20 oz... More

We rarely experience such bad service in the U.S., but on this visit the staff were doing anything bar looking after patrons. Even the manager spent most of his time outside chatting to the valet. Good food was ruined by bad service!
