Chilean sea bass made gluten free for me was outstanding along with must have Brussel sprouts/bacon/shallots. My husband had filet and I didn't even get to try it because he cleaned his plate! Extensive wine list. Enough said, we will be back💜

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Can't quite describe the atmosphere. It was beautiful & romantic and yet at the same time lively & energetic. Attire was casual, staff very friendly & unpretentious. Our waiter Edward was great and very helpful with his suggestions. The food was well prepared and artistically presented. I highly recommend the Pineapple Cake dessert!!

What a wonderful dining experience! Our waiter, Edward, was very familiar with the menu and we went with his recommendations....great choices! We started off with the Soft Shell Crab appetizer, and then my wife ordered the Sliced Filet with Shrimp Scampi, and I had the Wild Salmon and brussel sprouts. We both enjoyed our choices! We then topped it off... More

Actually I do know why we haven't been to this restaurant before.. It has seafood in the title and my husband doesn't like seafood. But when his best friend said that the steaks were awesome we decided to give it a try. What a surprise. While it is primarily a seafood restaurant it has an excellent steak menu. First the... More

The lobster tacos are amazing!! Husband got Chilean sea bass that was out of this world good. I got the Sole that was really good & a huge potion. Wish they had a entree of just a few fish tacos & a side! Really was one of best meals I've had in Cali.

I realize this review will get lost in the midst of all the 5 or 4 star postings, but I feel I need to share our recent experience there just to give some perspective. All those positive ratings were the reason we chose Wildfish for our Saturday night dinner outing. Atmosphere: - The restaurant portrays itself as an elegant dining... More

This place is one of the better seafood spots I have tried. The location at the end of a nice strip plaza was easy to find. The exterior was attractive while the interior was even more so. The softly lit, elegant surroundings allowed for a nice, relaxing dinner. We had made reservations on Open Table and were accordingly seated right... More

I was staying at the Marriott Bayview and made a reservation for dinner here because it was just a short drive. The building is in a strip mall but don't let that put you off. use the valet service for your car. Inside, there is a buzz from the bar, leather booths, white linen and lots of attention. The food... More
