While visiting my brother in law in Irvine we dined here and enjoyed our meal. Even though it was fairly early (6:30 pm) the parking lot was very full so we were worried there would be a long wait but it seemed as though the crowds were in the bar area so we were seated quickly. Nice server brought menus... More

Wonderful evening with family; service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Go for the dessert - the upside down pineapple cake was amazing!

Dining at Wildfish Seafood Grille was an enjoyable experience that featured a couple highlights. The ambience, service and food quality was strong and the two appetizers we ordered were killer. We started with the Ahi Tuna Tartar and Salt and Pepper Shrimp which were both superb. We didn't do as well with our main course selections however. We ordered the... More

We were having a wonderful time visiting Newport Beach. We found this restaurant on the internet and it sounded good. However, our waiter made this restaurant one we will never visit again. From the start, he acted like we were beneath him. He forgot to bring our drinks, he forgot to bring our bread. He never apologized. The food was... More

Excellent experience. The food, service, and atmosphere are all exceptional. Our group sat on the patio and definitely enjoyed the meal. The prices are steep as everything is a la cart, but definitely worth it.

On a Friday night, visiting our adult children in Newport, we tried Wildfish grill. Larger than you think from the outside, but arranged for intimate spaces. The wine we ordered was not the wine we received. Be careful and look at what you buy. The sommelier was embarrassed and had been crossed up by his supplier. He did rectify the... More

Everyone time we go there is another delightful experience. The service is excellent and you are always welcomed by all the staff. The happy hour is so pleasant and the appetizers are huge and excellent. We always wind up ordering the same ones, the batterfried oysters, pot stickers and the calamari, because they are so delicious. We have had dinner... More

There were eight of us for a birthday celebration. The waiter was friendly but never ever there when you needed him. Someone at the table was always looking for him. Example: when I stopped him to order a cup of coffee at the end, he never asked anyone else. they had to track him down to order. Very overpriced for... More

Great food always crowded pickup place for the nouveau riche with great atmosphere where dressing up to impress is the norm. Sadly, you won't gain pounds here with the minuscule food served for enormous prices. I could break the bank and starve after buying a dinner for my wife sans booze! Yikes, won't be coming back here unless I hit... More
