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.

Took a group (12) of older adults (one power chair) for dinner. Impressed from the start with hostesses opening the doors (even with reservations this sometimes doesn't happen for us). Two younger servers were wonderful and professional....excellent service like these guys had been doing it for years. They explained every question my group had about the menu, anticipated our needs... More

Friends hosted me here for a Friday evening dinner, and enjoyed it greatly. Pleasant modern decor with attentive friendly service. My favorite dinner choice is always fish, and the selection included many of my favorites. I opted for the Swordfish with Jonah Crab, well done and tasty. I will look forward to a return visit.

The setting of the restaurant was very comfortable. We found the fish / seafood was very fresh. The way that the chef cooked the fish was very tasty. We love this restaurant.

The lobster and shrimp bisque is the best, so don't miss it. My fillet was delicious and cooked to perfection, and my bananas foster was excellent and easily feeds two. Extensive wine list and the bread/butter could be a meal by itself. The wait staff took great care making sure everything was right, and did it without bothering us. One... More

This restaurant Thad excellent food and service by Colton. The lump crab cake was superb. The ahi tuna steak was very large and the scallops melted in your mouth. The bread was just so so. It was a grain bread but lacked flavor.

Very disappointed with our visit this year. We have been coming to Wildfish for many years when our Grandchildren visit us. It is one of the highlights of their trip. However this year it was a 180 turn. Too much sauce on everything!! My Grandaughter ordered the grilled Shrimp with Crab, they never mentioned the garlic! There was soo much... More

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!
