Very impressed

Have had great lunches, happy hours and dinners here numerous times. Tonight we had 50+ people for a formal sit down dinner. I was skeptical that a restaurant could pull this off. It was perfect. The wait staff , the food. Everything. WOW. I utterly impressed!

We met business associates here for dinner on a weekday evening. The place was packed, but they still found us a table in short order. I had the rotisserie chicken which is served with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. Very good. Friends had the grilled salmon on a bed of salad which looked very tasty. Their house Cabernet was... More

Wildfox is typical California Cuisine. A bit on the pricey side with mixed results. It can be really good, or so so...However the outdoor part is always a winner. Get together with friends, have appetizers and wine and it will be just fine!

Great for drinks. We did not order drinks & the service was super slow. Perhaps they were training new wait staff?

I live kind of close to this place but just never went there , mainly because it's next to a hotel and assumed it was hotel food, even though my daughter had been to a party there and she told me it was amazing and prepared something especially for her as she doesn't eat meat, well we tried it and...

We came here for dinner on a Saturday. The place was packed, but to my surprise, they saved us a booth as requested when I made the reservation. Good job! The host was very friendly and we were seated immediately. The decor and overall atmosphere of Wildfox is cozy, with feelings similar to being inside a large luxurious cabin. The... More

The service was better than the food. I had the sausage pizza...not bad, but it could've benefitted from more sausage to offset the mild ricotta cheese embedded with the mozzarella. Location was nice and convenient since it's adjacent to the Best Western Plus. A little pricey though. Probably won't return.

Our food and service were excellent. We choose it because it was adjacent to our hotel, but I would return there again just to dine.
