Description: As with everything great, one must first seek the roots. In our case, we are lucky enough to have our first restaurant, Wildflower, continuously thriving and serving the local and die-hard fans of Fox Restaurant Concepts in Tucson. While our seasonal menu changes with the calendar, the walls and décor with the years, the one thing that has remained steadfast and true is Wildflower’s carefully constructed plates, artfully shaken martinis and loyalty to its guests. You could call it a long-term love affair, and you’d just be scratching the surface.

“Great patio, outstanding food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Recently visited the Wildflower Restaurant in Tuscon, in a word, spectacular. We were greeted as we arrived, and as we had reservations through open table we were seated immeidately. It was a Tuesday night, and reservations were probably not required. We took a seat on the patio, which is very large, probably 80 seats, with a beautiful view out to the mountains. We ate our dinner between 5:30 and 7:00 and to watch the sun and shadows on the mountains was spectacular. We started our dinner with a glass of Sangria, although Tuesday's is half price bottle of wine night. Shortly after our drinks were delivered by our lovely server, Lizzie we were bought bread with an excellent olive oil. We then started our meal with salads, I had the Farmer's salad, very nice, fresh, and my wife had the Kale salad, which was also good. For mains, I had the steelhead, beautifully cooked in a beautiful sweet sauce, my wife had the Paella, also very, very good.

Full, but curious we had to try the desserts. I had the strawberry rhubarb crisp, with scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, my wife the bars of sin. I finished mine, delicious, my wife ate one of the two bars and had the rest in a doggie bag for a late night snack.

Excellent service, excellent food, a truly great food experience. Thank you Wildflower.

“Beautiful outdoor setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

wonderful lunch with a beautiful mountain view. Almost feels like you are looking at a photo just so perfect. Sandwiches are unique delicious, and large enough to split with someone so you can try the soup as well.

“great ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Had a family reunion and was invited by my cousin's family to this very chic establishement for dinner. Best enjoyed with your significant other, because it has a romantic atmosphere. We enjoyed the food, lotsa variety and quality ingredients, nice surprise in a rather boring town.

“Great staff, food and drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Had reservations for 12:30 lunch this past Sunday. I arrived a little early and decided to sit at the bar for a drink on a hot 90○ plus day. The nice girl behind the bar suggested a Black & Blue Mohito for a light, cold, refreshing drink. She was absolutely right on the mark. It had to be one of the best drinks I've had in a long time! Absolutely perfect! I ordered one for everyone at our table...they all loved it.
Our waitress did a great job. She was funny, helpful, and provided great service. The food was great, especially the donuts and whip cream for desert.

Definitely a place worth visiting again!

“"Can We Have Some Water, Please!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The food at Wildflower is really good, having been there now twice in as many weeks, not a fluke. This past Saturday night we were there with another couple, they too had not been back to Wildflower in some time, and, they, too were happy with the food. Can't say we're overly picky, just appreciate a good meal at a good price, the restaurant more than delivers. Here's the caveat, the service. This is not excusable. Our server just seemed overwhelmed, got a few things wrong, but, the biggest problem was getting his attention. Attention for the little things that should not have been an issue.
