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 restaurant never disappoints. Service and food is always excellent. Even when a dish isn't exactly the way we like it, they try to make it right.

Ramon was a server, he was great. I ordered a 84.00 seafood tower for my bday it was all I wanted. The oysters were great. The shrimp were good, the bowl of crab mush was such a let down and disgusting. and the lobster was rubbery. I did not complain because my husband had put sooo much into taking me... More

Wildfish continues to deliver good food consistently over the years and a good atmosphere. The happy hour prices seem to have gone up and the offerings are more limited. A few years back oysters were $.75 each and have gone up to $2.00 . Other items on the menu are now only a few dollars off regular price versus closer... More

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 Cellar, I got this... 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.
