“Food was dissapointing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Came here with a date after reading many good reviews and craving some salmon. The hostess and the servers were amazing and gave great service, the vibe was cool, lots of newporters and I thought I was in for a treat! When my salmon arrived I immediately noticed it smelled fishy! I was very disappointed! I tried it and it was ok, nothing special. Maybe it was an off night?? It happens! Will definitely give it another try, maybe it will be better next time!

I usually order the seabass this time i ordered filet, perfection. Basil martini, twice-baked potato just added to a great experience.

“A special experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our evening here. Warm and inviting decor, good lighting, and outstanding personnel. Truly pleasant! We loved the lobster and shrimp bisque, lemon sole, and the truffled scallops. We highly recommend.

“Loved the Lobster Tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We had an excellent experience at Wildfish. The atmosphere, the food and server were top notch. We had a booth at the back, so it was quieter and not sure how noisy nit is in other parts of the restaurant. The open kitchen is nice to watch. I had the appetizer lobster tacos which was a full meal and my husband has the special of the eve, white snapper. Both were delicious. We live in Ct and spend time in NYC, so we are spoiled, but Wildfish deserves to be #7 or higher. We will go back agai soon.

Excellent food quality and the service at this restaurant is one of the best

We enjoyed the crab cakes, lobster bisque, and for main course the jumble shrimps and scallops are awesome, you must try the truffles macaroni and cheese, the deserts are also very good, we had the chocolate cake
