We love coming here when we visit the area. Wildfish offers an upscale dining experience in a contemporary setting. I'm struggling to say which item is best to choose from as all are quite delicious. This past trip my wife and I shared the swordfish and their 16oz new york sirloin which they split for us and created two surf... More

Going out to Wildfish is a nice experience. Nicolette served us last night and was outstanding. She explained the menu well, was attentive to all our needs, and even handled a complaint with grace and ease. Our food was delicious. The only negative was the wedge salad. It came out very dry and the top of the wedge was brown.... More

Has one of the best Happy Hours I have been to. A number of specially priced appetizers and drinks. Drinks were great and appetizers were excellent, including shrimp, tuna and crab cake appetizers. Dinner is excellent as well. Will definitely go back on next visit to Newport.

Our waiter Manny was very friendly and attentive to our needs. I had the Grand Banks Scallops and my companion had the Scottish Salmon. Both were excellent. We shared two small sides of au gratin potatoes and sauteed Monterey-style corn. Everything was served very hot, not lukewarm. The sides were as good as the entree. We decided to try the... More

we celebrated our Anniversary here and had a wonderful meal. The Halibut was superb, the sides of Brussels sprout (don't see these often on the menu) were perfect and the potatoes au gratin were delicious. My pineapple upside down dessert was huge and unbelievably good. The chocolate cake and ganache stood out. The service was first class, friendly, and we... More

The food is excellent (I've never been disappointed) and portions generous. Our favorite thing about Wildfish is the happy hour that extends to 7pm. The happy hour menu is extensive, affordable, and the portions large. This location is famous for the pineapple upside-down cake, which is no longer on the menu but they still serve it if you ask for... More

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

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
