This is a fun and cozy place in a nice and quiet location. Good parking which is helpful. The menu is really interesting with a bit of a theme around artichokes as the name of the restaurant suggests. The steak frites is excellent, as are the pasta dishes. The tomahawk pork chop--a signature dish--looked gigantic and very yummy. One can... More

My wife and I had dinner with another couple at the Wild Artichoke in mid September 2016. The restaurant is small but clean and nicely decorated. It was our first visit so I'm limited to reviewing what I had. I'm from New Orleans and grew up with jambalaya. I make a good jambalaya dish (I think) and love to taste... More

Fantastic, gourmet food hidden away in a sleepy strip mall in Yorba Linda. Every dish in an ever changing menu is phenomenal, and the owner always makes time for his guests. The artichoke dip given as an accompaniment to the bread is to die for. Highly, highly recommended.

If you're looking for a gourmet menu and 5 Star presentation with the friendliest serving staff in the area, I absolutely recommend The Wild Artichoke. It's a small restaurant in a very unassuming location toward the back of a strip center in Yorba Linda. The menu is slightly different every night based on the freshest ingredients and the chefs creativity.... More

When the Wild Artichoke first opened the food was incredible. Went back a couple of times and the food was very good. Took some out-of-town guest a couple of 6+ months ago and was very very disappointed in the food. Presentation was marginal and the food poor. We were extremely dissatisfied!

After dining at the Wild Artichoke many times over the past 10 years we realized we had never written a review. This is perhaps Yorba Linda's best restaurant. Chef James always prepares creative and tasty meals. On this occasion we had Creole Shrimp and Hot Sausage Jambalaya and Grandma Josephine's Sicilian Meatloaf, both are favorites of ours. We finished off... More

We have stumbled in here a few times. Each time the chef/owner comes out to say hi. They always have thoughtful menu items and they are changing them regularly. It's great for any food allergies you have, as you get to speak directly with the chef if needed. I would get a reservation but if you go early you should... More
