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.

We tried this restaurant based on other Trip Advisor reviews, and it was a great choice! The restaurant is dark and welcoming - a nice atmosphere. It can be romantic, but I was there with friends, so not for that purpose. The service was very good, and the seafood was excellent. I highly recommend the calamari appetizer - it was some of the best I've ever had. The server knew the menu well, and made great recommendations. It is expensive, and the dinners are a la carte, but it was worth it.

This restaurant was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint.

The food was amazing, we shared the lobster tacos and batterfried oysters both were really good, they seafood was very fresh.

For dinner we had the Red Snapper and Stuffed Shrimp, again both were really good.

If you are looking for an upscale seafood restaurant in the desert, give it a try you wont be disappointed.

No disputing that the food here is very good and the atmosphere is sophisticated and I guess one has to expect to pay a lot of money for fresh fish that has been flown into the dessert, BUT it is also very expensive and the service on the restaurant side can be rather pretentious with the waiters in white jackets with padded shoulders (!). Don't order anything without asking the price and be prepared to pay more for one glass of a favorite wine than what you might usually pay for the entire bottle. Instead try the unadvertised Happy Hour for a good selection of drinks and small plates for far less money and accomodating servers. It is a good value.

This was one of the best restaurant meals we have had. We were greeted with friendly hosts and the waiter was efficient, and allowed us to enjoy the several courses of our meal without being rushed. We had the steak and lobster tartare to start and it was fabulous. We also shared the wild mushroom salad with warm goat cheese and it was excellent. I had the halibut, and it was the best I have had in a long time. My husband said his scallops were excellent. The wine list is extensive and the suggestion was very good. This restaurant is highly recommended.

I’m in Scottsdale 3-4x per year for short 1-2 day visits and usually visit SD quarter where the restaurants are a little higher end and slightly more pricey. This was a great location, great atmosphere, extensive wine list (markups seemed a little higher than normal-$80 for the Prisoner x 3) Seared Ahi, Calamari and Potstickers apps were quite good, the lump crab just so/so for $16.00. Entrees were quite tasty with the exception of the salmon, It was ok but a little too much BBQ. The Godiva cake was a nice way to finish. Service was great
