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.

Not a good choice

With so many choices in Scottsdale, why pick a poor but expensive restaurant? Only reason: You don't live in Scottsdale. Actually the salt and pepper shrimp,appetizer was not bad.

First time eating at a Wildfish and the entire group was very pleased with the food and the service. The special was outstanding. It is a bit pricey for frequent visits.

I have been going to Wildfish for years and bringing my guests and visitors there for the happy hours and dinners but this is the first time that a waitress has changed the amount of the tip that I left. When I noticed this on my statement, I called and brought it to the attention of the manager who defended... More

Atmosphere very nice but loud. Waiter had problems hearing order. Ended up keeping wrong order because it had taken very long to receive dinner service. Fish was good but bland.

short and sweet. My husband and I frequented this restaurant several times mostly on anniversaries and were never disappointed. I always ordered the jumbo lump crab cake, the Atlantic Lemon Sole--the sauce surrounding the fish is delicious, so much so that I always ask for more. The service and ambiance is phenomenal. Because we usually frequent WildFish on our anniversary... More

We were warmly greeted and shown to a tabe strewn with rose petals for the occasion, nice touch! Since there are so many delicious sounding choices we decided to just split everything. had 2 appetizers, the lobster tacos and... More

Most of the time I think that restaurants overcharge and the food is not so great. However, our visit to Wildfish changed my opinion at least once. The fish was excellent. The chef didn't get carried away with trying to make it taste like something else. I had the ahi tuna which was one of the best seafood dinners I've... More

After leaving another establishment and arriving here about 4:45 we were surprised that the bar only had a few patrons so we chose to sit at the bar and have our drinks and eats. The staff were friendly and I ordered a very limey cosmo and husband ordered a pinto grigio. My cosmo was very good and his wine was... More

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.
