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.

We had dinner at the Wildfish Grille in Scottsdale with out of town friends who were visiting. We made reservations online for 7:00 p.m on a Saturday evening. We arrived at the restaurant about 10 minutes early and checked in at the hostess stand. The hostess informed us that our table was ready and we could be seated at any... More

There were about 20 of us and they gave us a great area to sit. They had great specials and the servers were very attentive. There were good choices on the menu. The main staple is seafood but they also had steak and chicken along with a few asian dishes. I had the filet mignon and grilled shrimp. The portions... More

We have eaten many times at Wildfish in Newport Beach and this was our first time at the Scottsdale location . Our expectations were fully met. We like to share dishes -- they are ample enough and that way we get to taste more items. Everything was excellent. The stand outs were the crab cakes, the calamari with cashews, the... More

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

Returned for a second visit after a few months gap, still excellent fish, wines, cocktails etc. good selection of daily special fish courses, wonderful sides especially the crab rice mix. Everything top quality. However we I'd not get the same level of service this time around waiter seemed distracted and too busy, I got the feeling he was new, and... More
