I dined at this place with my brother who is a frequent customer. This restaurant is nothing short of excellent. Great service and wonderful food. The Sea Bass was great as well as the oyster appetizers (raw of course). I don't live in the area, but upon returning, this is a MUST go place. I have a hard time believing... More

This restaurant is located in a shopping center. Valet parking is available, otherwise free parking is somewhat difficult to find. We tried the Ahi tuna tartar appetizer, and crab cake appetizer. Both of these dishes were excellent. For entrees, we tried the fresh Halibut special, Chilean sea bass, and New York peppercorn steak. -the Halibut special was perfect! Tasty, fresh... More

We have eaten here before so we were looking forward to this. The ahi tartare was great as was the chilled gulf shrimp....huge! We also really enjoyed the pacific swordfish blackened and the George's scallops. Dessert was also good...creme brûlée was sky with a great crunchy top and the molten lava cake with ice cream was rocking!

Service level... What service? Waited over 10 minutes for our server to even come to my table. The restaurant was packed and it seemed like they didnt have enough staff. The food was fine, good but nothing special, not worth the circus like atmosphere.

I had the feeling I was going to get fleeced, and i wasn't far off... 4 people with fairly simple choices came to about $ 330 and with only one glass of wine. The portions were more than adequate, but generally without vegetables, so those are ala carte.. Anyway, the food was well prepared and decent, but nothing to rave... More

A colleague and I had dinner here last night. We chose Wildfish because we wanted seafood and the TripAdvisor reviews were rating Wildfish at the top for this area and it was close by. We were not disappointed. This place flat has their act together. It is obviously very well managed. Our server, Audrey, was the best. She explained and... More

We had an outstanding dinning experience at Wildfish. The meal was delicious and the wait staff was knowledgeable, attentive and passionate. We were pampered from the moment we arrived. The Dover Sole was as advertised. Highly recommended.

Had a fantastic meal here with super food and great service. Despite the restaurant name - I had steak which was great. Prawns also great. Waiter did dessert to share - and didn't disappoint. Highly recommend.
