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.

Great Seafood

We happened to be in town during restaurant week and took advantage of the tasting menu. The sole in lemon sauce as delicious as was the seafood bisque. The Godiva Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream was a great ending to the meal. The service was great.

great seafood and professional service- with a good wine list. We go there, at least once, on every visit to Scottsdale.

To celebrate our anniversary I wanted to surprise my wife with a nice dinner. I really lucked out by picking this place. I scored major brownie points 😉. We both ordered the filet and shrimp entrée. It was fabulous. The filet was cooked to perfection and the shrimp seemed like it was straight from the ocean. The server demonstrated his... More

A comfortable place to enjoy top quality food and good service, in pleasant surroundings. The prices are not cheap, but like most things you get what you pay for. The seafood was very well prepared, appetizing to look at, and served hot of the stove. The sauteed spinach and steamed asparagus were excellent, while the roasted double breast of chicken... More

Great place for dinner! Started with drinks at the bar, bartending staff was right there to ensure our drinks were well maintained. Menu was awesome and service was impeccable. Food was excellently prepared, delicious and generous. Service like I said was excellent. Will definitely be dining here again.

Our concierge from the Phoenician, Robert, recommended this place. We sat outside on the patio, which was nice. Good menu and choices. The swordfish steak was great! My tuna was really spicy and the menu did not indicate that, otherwise, my husband, 15 yr. old son, and I enjoyed. Nice waiter too.

I arranged a dinner reservation for a large party on a Sunday night and chose this restaurant based on the reviews and menu. Every person in the party was overly pleased with the food and the dining experience. The waitstaff were very professional and the food was outstanding. We will definitely come back on future business trips to Phoenix!

Ambiance /aesthetics of the restaurant are average at best; it lacks elegance and distinction. That is not a problem of course if food and service are outstanding, but that is not the case here. The service was adequate but our waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu (or food and beverages in general) and hence unable to make useful recommendations.... More
