I usually go to this restaurant for happy hour. The main dining room tends to be quite noisey so head for the rear patio area--it is bright and more serene. Good choices avaiable for happy hour wine. This place is known for the calamari appetizer which is terrific and a happy hour item. Good crab cakes and ahi.

Consistantly beyond excellent. I've been a regular supporter of Wild Zfish since they opened and I honestly say I have had well over 150 meals there spent untold thousands of dollars and I have never left dissatisfied. One of the things that I like best is the location is such that I feel the crowd is more local than touristy,... More

I really like Wildfish for a fun happy hour atmosphere. The food is good but not great though. The tuna and steak tartare was our favorite selection.

We have never had a bad experience here. The food is wonderfully prepared and the service is professional. I never would have thought of ordering meat at this seafood establishment, but someone in our party order the rib eye, and it was better than at most steak houses. Don't go without sharing the calamari appetizer...it is truly great. I could... More

I selected this venue to celebrate the 40th anniversary of family members who live in the Orange County area. Not knowing anything about this restaurant but after looking at the menu, I booked our party of 4. They were extremely gracious. We all enjoyed several dishes and the service was quite good. I would have liked the crowd to be... More

Really fantastic experience. Done had the filet and lobster and was amazed at how good it was. He's 15 so, that's high praise... I had the filet with scampi and was awed by the mix of spices and sauce. Exquisite. Everything was excellent. Great jovial atmosphere and our server (Manuel S.) was knowledgeable on everything in the menu. Some rather... More

So I went here tonight, July 8, 2015 for my birthday. Heard a lot of good things. Not so for me. The waiter did seem very knowledgeable. I ordered a bottle of wine and dinner all at once because my wife and I were starving. She got the scallops and I got steak au poivre, and we shared Brussel sprouts... More

We have been passing by this restaurant for the last few years but never really visited the place until last night. What a surprise. The restaurant was quite an establishment in a small community mall off the I-73 which is surrounded by the simple food / coffee shop and bakery. The food here was very good to excellent. The crab...
