The Mother's Day Brunch was wonderful - we had multiple choices for each course and our group sampled all of them. The service equals the food quality.

fantastic fish. the atmosphere is the best. my 7 year old calls it a 'fancy' restaurant. It has all of the meanings for that. The waiters wear bow ties and the service is impeccable. Expect to pay a high price but you are getting your money's worth.

Saw the high ratings and two dollar sign price and expected a storefront with really fresh seafood. Surprise!!! Upscale restaurant with off the charts food and prices to match. My wife had shrimp and I had swordfish. Incredibly delicious. Really fine service. Great choice of places but don't believe TripAdvisor's price rating.

We ate here based on two things--TripAdvisor reviews and the two $$ listed with this restaurant. The fish we had and service were great--but while the food and service were good, it is very overpriced. We are very accustomed to San Francisco restaurant pricing so it is not as if we don't know how much a meal in an upscale... More

Not an inexpensive place, but very high quality . We loved our dover and sole dishes. The molten chocolate dessert- YUMMY!!! Service a bit slow, but very friendly and generally attentive . Did have a bit of a wait even with a reservation.

We stayed at the Marriott Newport Coast Villas and they recommended Wildfish to us as a great restaurant. They were not wrong. It is located in a busy shopping mall that has plenty of parking. The restaurant is a fairly large, open room which does tend to get a bit noisey. Our waiter, Jeff, was one of the most professional... More
