We visit friends in Irvine and each time we go to Wildfish Seafood Grill for dinner. The restaurant is very attractive and the service is excellent. They are attentive and friendly which adds to the ambience. The food is also delicious. It is a bit pricey, but the quality of the fish is superior. We had the Crab and Corn... More

The atmosphere is very mediocre and only the bar was busy, I have been here before but its been awhile and now I remembered why I stopped going there. Our server Katherine was solid but the cocktails were GROSSLY OVER PRICED and the food was BAD and very overpriced as well. If you want to spend good money for BAD... More

Our group of four were celebrating anniversaries and decided that this would be a logical choice based on reviews. We made a reservation in advance. When we arrived, we had to wait a little to be seated (the place was busy but there were several table open). Our waiter was very good and after ordering beverages, we also brought along... More

My wife and I went with three other friends to Wildfish for dinner during our visit to the National Drug Court Conference in June. Wildfish is an upscale restaurant with excellent service. My wife had the Fuji apple salad and shared the lobster and shrimp bisque with me. For my entree, I had the Alaskan halibut. The food and service... More

Our good friends took me out for my birthday to this restaurant in Newport Beach knowing that I love seafood and having researched the good reviews about the place. It’s convenient for us to get there from North OC via 73, a toll road, exiting on Bison just before there was a toll. The restaurant is in a nice new... More

the food is good, the service is excellent , but the prices are way too expensive . The prices are not on the menu. I called a bout the dress code, and was told business casual and I saw some guests with shorts (this is dinner time) I did not like that since I had my family with me

My husband and I have been to Wildfish for dinner twice over the last few months, and it is always phenomenal! All of the fish dishes we have ordered have been fresh and delicious. Their South African Lobster Tail is large and prepared perfectly with outstanding flavor and texture! I absolutely love their mushroom salad, and my husband is always... More

That should say it, but my first review....? Mostly eat at the bar. Food is great, good selection and not too high a price. Staff is super friendly and really engaging. Busy place but not too loud and usually most of the other customers are pretty sociable. You'll like it. G
