Great Happy Hour

We went there for happy hour after work and sat by the bar. Our server was very friendly and answered every question we passion. Food was delicious and the drinks were awesome :-) Its a busy place & the ambiance is cool. We will go back for an official dinner.

My wife and I shared a sole fish entree, at the waiters suggestion. We were both satisfied completely as the portion sizes were large. The flavor was delicious, served quickly, hot, and with plenty of attention from our waiter. they are trained to call you by your name, at every opportunity. Very pleasant atmosphere also. We made reservations using the... More

We ate here on Valentine's Day. The food was good and the service was excellent. But, for the price, there are many other places just as good for less.

Everything was top notch. Our waiter (Jeff) was a professional, explaining all the specials in detail and answering the very few questions we had, I had probably one of the most perfectly done NY Strips I've ever had, and my wife had the sole, ending the meal with an upside down pineapple flambé. Service was perfect at the atmosphere was... More

Went around 6:00 for an early dinner and was pleasantly surprised to find their happy hour going until 7:00. We were able to get a booth near the bar which allowed us to enjoy happy hour specials. Food was delicious and prices were great. Very attentive and friendly staff. Cool ambiance and vibe.

I have dined at the location in Scottsdale for many years, but have never had the opportunity to dine at the Newport Beach location. While visiting my cousins in Huntington Beach, I treated them for dinner there and had a marvelous dining experience. The moment we arrived the host spotted us walking toward the front door and opened it for... More

In from out of town and made reservations for a Friday night before Valentine's Day. Only had to wait five mins for our table. There is outside seating and next time would sit out there. While I was surprised it's at an inland strip mall, everything exceeded expectations! Waiter provided fantastic service and recommendations. Food was lovely. I started with... More

The bar was the obvious attraction here for many...particularly on a busy Friday night. Great atmosphere with lots of energy. But, some friends and I were more interested in catching up and enjoying a nice meal and a bottle of wine. Wildfish didn't disappoint. The restaurant portion of the space is casually elegant, without being stuffy. Nice, varied menu. Some... More

Bar overwhelms the restaurant. The fresh fish dinners were great and ample portions. I had scallops and they were not spectacular. Very average unfortunately. My salad was delicious. Just don't recall the name. Had warm goat cheese. Calamari preparation was very different and very good. Id go back.

We started with the calimari. It had a nice zip, with a spicy and oriental influence. It is large enough so that two could share it and another appetizer could make a meal. I had the seared ahi tuna with a perfectly accented salad. My wife had the generous and delicious seafood salad. Our waiter was excellent, responsive and helpful.... More
