Wildfish has a great atmosphere and delicious food. They also have sushi. I have always been happy with my meals here. They offer a great happy hour every day of the week. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We've never been but had heard it was good- and it was. We thought there might be a view, but there wasn't. The drinks, the appetizers, and the fish were all very good, as was our server- actually she was really good. But the hostesses had a bit of an attitude, which really got us off to a bad start....

I had my post-wedding dinner for a small group of guests here. The team of vendors really worked to transform the patio but the food and services was excellent. Great food and drinks. Everyone was happy. My vote is for the chilean sea bass, probably the best I've had. Crispy shrimp was also delicious/

The seafood is always amazing but the surprise this time was the Caesar Salad. Hadn't been for awhile so I don't know when this new and improved version was introduced. Perfectly chilled romaine leaves with anchovy tapenade on the side. Wonderful.

We arrived earlier than our reservation to try Happy Hour. The bartender said it was an unusually slow Friday, as folks weren't lined up 2 deep all around the bar., so we got a seat right away. Bartenders were prompt and friendly, and we ordered the $6 HH martinis and pot stickers. Came promptly and were good. We were shown... More

Food and service were excellent! Started with Tartare Of Pacific Ahi Tuna which was awesome. The Old Fashioned was spot on...best I have ever had in a restaurant / bar. The iceberg BLT wedge was super...traditional with a twist. Never had such tender swordfish and to top it off with fresh lump crab, avocado, red chile, and cilantro is genius.... More
