You have to plan to eat here. It is very small and seating is extremely limited. You MUST make a reservation. You WILL be glad you did. Every single dish we have had is special and memorable right down to the salads. The dishes are prepared by a Chef who obviously knows the business of fine dining. This is a... More

Awesome food...very unique...and great service. This place is rather small but cozy. You should make reservations. The chef is the best. And the wine list is premium. You get what you pay for. It is our favorite restaurant in Yorba Linda...by far!

My husband and I are in town for a wedding and decided after reading the reviews to have lunch here. We started with the fried calamari which was tender, abundant and flavorful. I had the salmon and calamari risotto and my husband had a pasta and meat dish. Both excellent! We had a tasty lemon tart for dessert. I would... More

Have been eating here for years. The chef creates very nice specials and they have great flavor. The other night we had the duck with quail and home made pasta. Just beautiful. Created to perfection. Spices and flavors blended very well. I wish the chef had kept the escargots on the menu. My kids absolutely loved it and so did... More

We hadn't been to the Wild Artichoke in so long, we couldn't remember why we'd never come back. Basically, there's nothing really wrong with it. The people are very nice. The prices are reasonable and the dishes are creative. But, with just a couple of exceptions, the food was just average. My wife ordered a pasta and I ordered the... More

7 of us had lunch here today. The server was vary pleasant. The menu was limited but interesting. But there were a number of specials. Two of us had a cup of chili which was very good. A number had the wild Artichoke salad and a special salad similar in nature. Both were unremarkable. Caesar salad OK. All in all... More

We've eaten at the Wild Artichoke a number of times over the past few years. The food is typically great and the atmosphere is quiet. It's a small store front type of restaurant but their chefs always put a lot of care into their creations. We love the salads. I'd pass on the artichoke leaves but the service if very... More

This is a small (42 capacity) restaurant in an unassuming strip mall. The menu is fairly extensive for such a small place. It has little atmosphere--the emphasis here is the food and the service. The escargots in mushroom caps was earthy and perfectly cooked. The artichoke soup was good but under spiced. Our party of four had three specials and... More
