“Very good food, interesting starters and reliable service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The variety of meal options, freshness and tastiness are Wild Sea's strong points. Wait service is consistently very good, but not perfect but interactions with a those working as hostesses has been spotty. Atmosphere tries to be interesting and fresh, but it doesn't really connect as authentic or memorable. I don't care too much though -- I go here for amazing starters and fresh, delicious seafood! And I'm quite happy.

“Excellent food, service and value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

The smoked wahoo starter was the best ever. The mussels were plump and well seasoned. The swordfish, scallops, and grouper were fresh and cooked to perfection. Our server, Jason, was knowledgeable and attentive. It was a great dining experience.

“Great Happy Hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. It is on Las Olas Blvd., one of the City's most popular areas. It is located within The Riverside Hotel and has both indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant is sleek and beautiful. I have eaten there for dinner in the dining room (Best Waiter - Brian :) but prefer their Happy Hour at the bar with friends. M-F is 50% off blue-point oysters and drinks from 5-7 and all night on Thursdays. The bartender is great...(Mateau), very proud of his work and makes a great dirty martini (muddled the olives)! They have numerous types of oysters, as well as King Crab App that for $18 is a great deal.
