Had dinner here while on a business trip. Recommended by the hotel. All three diners enjoyed their meals and the wine list was nice. Definitely recommend

“Great food and freebies for celebrations and first-timers”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We ate here during our anniversary weekend after noting the Tripadvisor ratings of area restaurants. When making the reservation by phone, I was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and if we had ever visited before. We were pleasantly surprised with a great booth table, a free appetizer in honor of our first visit, and a free dessert in honor of our anniversary. We were given the choice of any dessert on the menu for our free anniversary dessert (not just some little, standard freebie other restaurants give out). The desserts were so good we ordered another (so we could try two). The fish is even better. Great wait staff, great preparation, nice decor. Wonderful restaurant. Easy parking since it is in a small shopping center several miles away from Fashion Island. We will return.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Wildfish came with good recommendations - and I can see why. The food and service were both great! The menu was varied and interesting and the fish was fresh and beautifully presented. The pineapple upside down cake is to DIE FOR! It's great as a share dish - but tell you what - next time I go there, I'm not sharing with anyone! The menu was a little on the pricey side - but I'm happy to pay when the food and service are so good. Happy all 'round!

“Best food and happy hour”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Wow-this was great. Best place we ate in Newport Beach area. The food is excellent. I had a crab cake that had to be the best one I ever ate. My partner had the salt and pepper shrimp-huge service for an appetizer. For entrees I had the lemon sole and he got the swordfish-both great. We had a side order of crab fried rice that could have been it's own entree. Had to take home leftovers for lunch the next day. Here's the best tip-if you sit at the bar or the high top tables during happy hour the appetizers are around $6-8 and wine is $6.00 a glass. You could make a good meal with a crab cake or shrimp and a small order of a side. On Sundays and Mondays Happy Hour is all night-otherwise 4-7. Next time we go-that's what we are going to do, and I will go back for sure.

“Excelent experience”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We've eaten at Wildfish over the years and have been consistently pleased. The seafood is fresh and creatively prepared. The choices are numerous, but not so numerous that the kitchen can't prepare things well. Unlike many restaurants, the salads and desserts are unusual and good. The crowd is usually young and boisterous, so Wildfish is not your average Newport Beach restaurant.
