Description: The only thing primitive about Wildfish Seafood Grille is the swimmingly fresh seafood -- mostly caught the day before and shipped next day on ice. Otherwise, this cosmopolitan bistro is as sophisticated as any fine eatery in New York or Vegas. Burnished wood, dim theatrical lighting, cozy tables, a stylish exhibition kitchen and central bar with several TVs available to catch the game embellish the interior. Veteran restaurateurs Guy Villavaso and Larry Foles (Z'Tejas, Eddie V's Edgewater Grille) have created a fierce seafood-steakhouse combination, which attracts food-loving couples, ladies on a luxurious night out and sexy singles at the bar. Because Wildfish is not as wallet-busting as similar concepts in the area, go ahead and start with a spicy lump crab cake surrounded in a buttery remoulade sauce. If you're in the mood for steak, pick a finely aged filet, rib eye or veal chop.

“Wonderful meal with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We had dinner at the Wildfish Grille in Scottsdale with out of town friends who were visiting. We made reservations online for 7:00 p.m on a Saturday evening. We arrived at the restaurant about 10 minutes early and checked in at the hostess stand. The hostess informed us that our table was ready and we could be seated at any time.

Our waiter, Charlie, was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu items. We ordered two appetizers; the lobster tacos and calamari. Both were delicious. We enjoyed two bottles of wine and each of ordered an entrée. The food came quickly and everything was delicious.

Time flew as we ate our dinner and chatted with our friends. I enjoyed the lighting and the ambiance. Not too loud or too quiet. Not too dark or too light.

Our experience was great. We will return.

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

There were about 20 of us and they gave us a great area to sit. They had great specials and the servers were very attentive. There were good choices on the menu. The main staple is seafood but they also had steak and chicken along with a few asian dishes. I had the filet mignon and grilled shrimp. The portions were a nice size.The steak was juicy and tender. The shrimp was a good size. I also had the lobster tacos for an appetizer and lobster bisque for my second course. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice. They played a nice variety of music. Be prepared to spend about $150-$200 for a couple for a three course meal.

“Wonderful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We have eaten many times at Wildfish in Newport Beach and this was our first time at the Scottsdale location . Our expectations were fully met. We like to share dishes -- they are ample enough and that way we get to taste more items. Everything was excellent. The stand outs were the crab cakes, the calamari with cashews, the grouper and as always the side vegetables --roasted beets and broccolini. The room was a bit too dim for me but that is a minor issue. I thought the wine by the glass to be a bit pricey but it is Scottsdale.
