Even on St. Patrick's Day, the wait was short and the service was quick. The wait staff was friendly and the food was better than most bars. I would go back! I had the Chicken Pot Pie and it was yummy. The Mac & Cheese looked awesome.

Wilde is a nice idea, and I like the interior, but it can be crowded and noisy, and the food is sometimes quite good, sometimes dull or just plain bad. This is a pub atrmosphere, kind of raucous, but has a variety of seating arrangements: booths, regular tables, high tables w/ bar stools, in a large space with a kind of wood panel, artsy-cool vibe. The capacious bar has a nice selection of beers on tap, and I've also occasionally enjoyed their specialty drinks, like a delightful Irish Coffee. I've been here about 10 times, and my experience has been mixed. More than once they have served me a delicious whole fish on a cedar plank, and you can rarely go wrong with their rosemary chicken. However, I'd avoid the buffalo burgers, and their fish 'n chips are mighty greasy (but maybe you LIKE that). The menu often features specials; some are decent (fish) but others are overpriced and forgettable (red meat), or just plain unpalettable. I don't think much of their salads but love their desserts. Service is generally amiable, but it can be sluggish when they're busy.

This is a neighborhood bar on steroids. Interior buildout is phenomenal and they clearly spent a lot of money, and outdoor seating is top notch since it is in a great location along Broadway. The food is excellent, basically normal bar food but higher quality. Big fan and I will return.

This is definitely a place to be if ou are a beer, wine or bouron lover. The list is extensive for wine and beers from al around the world...Belgium, Germany, Italy. They offer beer, wine and bourbon flights. The food is delicious as well from the roasted half-chicken with creamy mashed potatoes and broccoli, to the lobster mac and cheese to the succulent turkey burger! The atmosphere is upbeat, fun and cozy; particularly sitting in the "library" area with a fireplace. Very reminicent of being in an old world cabin or a room out of a castle in Scotland. Awesome place to hangout on a cold day! Love this place!!

I had to stop for a quick meal. It was busy, but I grabbed a place at the bar. Great wine recommendation, and friendly and prompt service. The salmon burger I had was fine, nothing special, but it fit the bill. Busy atmosphere but not loud. Great energy but also relaxed.
