Description: As with everything great, one must first seek the roots. In our case, we are lucky enough to have our first restaurant, Wildflower, continuously thriving and serving the local and die-hard fans of Fox Restaurant Concepts in Tucson. While our seasonal menu changes with the calendar, the walls and décor with the years, the one thing that has remained steadfast and true is Wildflower’s carefully constructed plates, artfully shaken martinis and loyalty to its guests. You could call it a long-term love affair, and you’d just be scratching the surface.

“Post Storm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had dinner on a Saturday shortly after a very heavy rain. As a result service was somewhat disrupted as tables had to be rearranged. There were also less servers since they did not expect a busy night. It turned out to be an extremely busy night. Our wine was delayed because they ran out of small carafes. The manager brought us a complementary appetizer to apologize for the wait. The dinner was outstanding and we enjoyed the entire night, because of the extra appetizer we split an entree. This is a great place for dinner and the staff does a great job.The menu has many interesting items and the wine list has some very nice wines.

“Decent Food, Nice Atmosphere ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We went here yesterday for dinner. The decor and patio are nice and it is located in a fairly bustling Plaza. The mussel appetizer was great. Out of four different entrees no one thought their entree was great. All good though. I personally had the NY strip steak. Need a bit of seasoning. My wife's paella also needed a bit more flavor. I probably should have chosen something else since the waiter did not try to sell me on it when I asked for his recommendation. Good beer and wine selection.

Thank Jonathan P

“Informally cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

We have not been to Wildflower since it opened at least 15 years ago. What a mistake for us. We've been missing out on what I would call one of the best Happy Hour menus in town. It's daily from 3 PM to 6 PM. This is now added to one of my favorites. The decor is raging with hip snazzy decor. A very large outdoor seating area with lots of misters to keep you comfortable. We went with a friend and opted to be inside. We were there at about 5.30PM and it was not crowded at this time so the noise level was perfect. However, it did get crowded and got a bit noisy by the time we were finished. Maybe, sitting outside next time would be an option for us. Enough of my crabbing. Now to the Happy Hour menu. There are five wonderful items to choose from. Hard to make a decision. The crispy shrimp, zucchini, onion, caper aioli was incredible. Light and flaky with a real punch to it. The wild mushroom toast grilled ciabatta, goat cheese and roasted garlic was very flavorful and zesty. We also had the chicken skewer soy ginger caramel, radish sprouts and toasted sesame seeds. Very good choice. Their margarita was excellent. The rest of the menu looked like it has some great offerings. Looking forward to going again and trying something off the regular menu. This place is a good choice for taking visitors to because it reflects the flavor of Tucson living. P.S. The bread and the olive oil with garlic and herbs is amazing. I'm a big bread lover and ate half a loaf. No wonder I was exceedingly full.

We had dinner here and sat outside. Very nice cocktails and good food. No real problem getting gluten-free for the celiac in our group. Excellent desserts.

“Great ambiance and food to match”

Really great find. Outside patio was great as was the service and the food. Excellent bread with even better olive oil dipping sauce. Friendly bartenders and servers. Would definitely go back.
