The food at this restaurant was average. I wouldn’t go rushing back anytime soon. The atmosphere in the area where the restaurant was located was very strange. There was barely anyone in the area and it felt quite eerie. The restaurant building was old and...tired, it definitely needs knocking down and modernising. However, the inside of the restaurant was very modern and pleasant. I would advise visiting a restaurant in Portsmouth city centre rather than this particular area.More

We booked online to vist wildwood in port solent for my friend's birthday but when we arrived the staff where very rude and said that we couldn't have our table because they closed early (bank holiday monday) which it had never stated online as if...it had we would not have been able to book. I am throughy dispointed as my partner was really looking forward to it and needed to eat something as he is Diabetic the staff didn't have our booking and was confused which is unhelpful, we should've been sat and let to order food because of the inconvenience it disgracefulMore

I like this restaurant and bar but was surprised to be given a service charge when we were just drinking in the bar. Admittedly the drinks were delivered to the table twice but is this how bars are going to operate in future, never experienced...it anywhere else for drinks only in Portsmouth but happy to be enlightenedMore

Beautiful outdoor setting right by the marina. Excellent service and the best ribs I've ever had in the UK. Really impressed

The restaurant itself is large and airey, with outdoor tables also available. Have visited here a few times in the last year, but on the last visit it had definitely dropped in standard. The food itself is good and prices are reasonable, although the pizza...was slightly overcooked when it hadn't been on previous visits. Unfortunately the fruit juices at £2.85, have now halved in size, and you only get a small glass. The main thing that was lacking was good service, which seemed to be fairly inattentive and very rushed, with one waitress practically throwing the plate onto the table, before rushing off. We asked for tap water which didn't appear and our drinks were left on the bar for ages. Overall I think they need more waiting staff and to be less rushed with customers.More

Party of 4 friends sat outside overlooking the Marina. Amazing service, very warm welcome. Food was tasty and hot. Drinks were good. Just a tad expensive but didn’t spoil our meal. Will definitely return

I originally sent our experience of the Portsmouth branch, via the wildwood website’s feedback form …. I have had no acknowledgement let alone a reply or apology! I have decided to contact you as I I have decided to contact you as I simply cannot...get over the appalling dining experience received a couple of months ago at the port Solent branch near Portsmouth. This was to be a joyous family celebration, with relatives travelling up to join us from stoke, We weren't greeted and shown to a table in-fact the manager looked put out when we entered! They kept bringing the wrong wine to the table (a complete lack of ability to focus on the annoying task of listening to my order) The calamari was an insultingly small portion, not that it mattered as it was floating in oil soggy and burnt and therefore inedible and sent back, the chicken burger looked like it had been under a warming lamp most of the day dry and sweaty, the bacon was like jerky dry, leathery just horrid. our meals did not taste fresh they were frankly like microwave meals no love, passion, freshness. We were sat at the back, in front of the trellis where the kitchen is, there was no sign of ay skilled cooking going on But the staff were all there leaning up against the trellis having extremely loud conversations about what they had been up to. My fiend who was holding his newborn baby got squirted with cleaning solution through the trellis I had to ask for acknowledgment of this occurrence and a begrudging apology was delivered. Then came the rearranging of tables and chairs being scraped and dragged across the vast space when I spoke to the manager about the unbearable din he looked at me with contempt! A complete and utter depressing disaster.More

It was very busy due to Fathers day so very noisy. We had a good table near the window. The Service was very good seeing how busy they were. The food was very tasty and looked good. Would definitely be going back at not such...a busy time.More

Second visit after a very poor experience the first time and this visit was possibly worse. Very slow service, waiting a long time between courses for our plates to be cleared. Food was barely edible, however no one came to check whilst we were eating...and nothing was said when the plates were cleared. When asking for the bill I had a voucher to use but the server walked off whilst I was explaining this and rolled his eyes when the bill had to be reprinted. And they still had the cheek to add a service charge, refusing to take it off because that would mean printing the bill again. Avoid!More

One of the staff reacted quickly when we arrived to clear and prepare a table for our group outside in the sun, and drinks, starters and mains were brought promptly. But the service definitely deteriorated from there on. On three occasions we had to get...up and summon someone from the bar for some service, interrupting their chatting every time. At no stage did anyone think to apologise, even when we pointed out that they hadn't given us cutlery. The sun was shining and we were not in a great hurry, but we did rather get the impression that we had been forgotten when the restaurant was clearly not very busy. Otherwise the food was fine, nothing outstanding, the salads a bit bland and under-dressed, and the pizza portions quite generous. But I did resent paying the 10% service charge.More

Dreadful service from start to finish. Not one member of staff smiled at us at any point. We felt we were just an annoying distraction from their private chats. We came for a special occasion and it was anything but. They had the cheek to...add a 10% service charge to the bill. When we asked the manager to remove it he didn't even bother to ask why. Which says it all. Food was mediocre at best. Thoroughly miserable experience.More

Visited for lunch with my wife. Clean restaurant, great service, decent food, and good value for money. We were served by a lady called Borja, she was excellent. The location is really nice too. Free and easy parking is a bonus too. Definitely worth a...visit. I’ve uploaded a couple of photos but they don’t really do the presentation justice as we’d started eating before we took them, sorryMore

Ordered a takeaway. Arrived early so that the food was nice and fresh but it had already been sat waiting for us. Pizza was warm. Chips were cold. Calamari warm with no sauce. Ribs were warm and had no bbq sauce. Should have taken it...back but the family persevered. Emailed the restaurant an hour later and still waiting for the response nearly 2 weeks later. Plenty of restaurants nearby who serve decent food. Wouldn’t go back.More

Had lunch. Steak was a little tough but they adjusted the bill; seafood linguine very spicy but good flavour, though some of the seafood was a bit tough, perhaps overcooked.
