We were given a recommendation to try Wildfish Seafood Grille, and decided to give it a try. This restaurant is very expensive - but the food is outstanding! I believe it was the best Swordfish I have ever had! So fresh and flavorful! My husband had the steak and shrimp scampi - and said it was one of the best... More

Huge place and beautifully decorated. Reservations a must but flexible for small parties/solo. Calamari appetizer is unique, spicy and easily feeds two. Wedge salad decadent with two slices of bacon. Ahi steak is two inches thick! Sear was only 1/8 thick with cold center so I sent it back bAck for more sear; perfect and no questions asked. Great and... More

One of the best ship cocktail I have had Shrimp was firm and cold. Great sauce to Accompany them. The surf and turf appetizers were wonderful. Corn and crab chowder was a nice creamy and very filling soup. The lemon slow was great. The only poor dinner was the seafood salad dinner. The salad was limp and not tasty. Mac... More

Loved our dinning experience. For appetizers we had supper fresh oysters with hot, hot horseradish. One of the best oysters we had to date! Dinner equally impressive, fresh pacific tuna and swordfish and it wasn't a small portion either! Our waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I would recommend for a special occasion. Kind of pricey, 30 something per dinner,... More

Chilean sea bass made gluten free for me was outstanding along with must have Brussel sprouts/bacon/shallots. My husband had filet and I didn't even get to try it because he cleaned his plate! Extensive wine list. Enough said, we will be back💜

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Can't quite describe the atmosphere. It was beautiful & romantic and yet at the same time lively & energetic. Attire was casual, staff very friendly & unpretentious. Our waiter Edward was great and very helpful with his suggestions. The food was well prepared and artistically presented. I highly recommend the Pineapple Cake dessert!!

What a wonderful dining experience! Our waiter, Edward, was very familiar with the menu and we went with his recommendations....great choices! We started off with the Soft Shell Crab appetizer, and then my wife ordered the Sliced Filet with Shrimp Scampi, and I had the Wild Salmon and brussel sprouts. We both enjoyed our choices! We then topped it off... More

Actually I do know why we haven't been to this restaurant before.. It has seafood in the title and my husband doesn't like seafood. But when his best friend said that the steaks were awesome we decided to give it a try. What a surprise. While it is primarily a seafood restaurant it has an excellent steak menu. First the... More
