This is a small restaurant with a beautiful ocean view and more than that AMAZING food! No matter what you order, the fish is fresh and beautifully prepared. I wish it wasn't so far from home so I could eat there more often

This place fits about 20 guests. And with that it's very tight. Not comfortable. The gal behind me left me little room. It was very dark and so we couldn't see what the view was although we were on the parking lot side. When we got there we noticed that the table in the center was empty and I think... More

Nice Dinner. Small place. Reservations probably. I'd go back. Place is hidden but worth the effort to find. Uses local foods.

This intimate, 10 table restaurant is trying new combinations of local, organic food, and there is a prevailing sense of caring about your experience at the restaurant. It is not inexpensive, but they are not cutting corners in quality.

We stopped in for lunch on a sunny afternoon. On!y one of us got a view of the ocean as the place is really small. The waitress was very nice. The menu was small and they only use locally caught fish and organic ingredients. We had a cup of chowder that was about 4 oz. It was interesting and good,... More

If you want the best seafood, this is the place to go. They specialize in local, freshly caught fish and seafood. I've eaten there twice, and it may be the best seafood I've ever had. Wonderful preparations of absolutely fresh fish and oysters. Very nice wine list, and the wines by the glass were also very good and worked well... More

This tiny restaurant services terrific seafood. Upon arrival, we were concerned that the wait staff would be stretched too thin, but they weren't. Highly recommend Wild Fish for seafood lovers. Carnivores should skip it.

We arrived right at opening because we didn't have a reservation and was seated promptly. It's a beautiful space with 10 tables - such a lovely view of the ocean. From start to finish the service and food was exquisite. We split an appetizer of chanterelle mushrooms, followed by ahi tuna. Every aspect of the meal was delicious - flavorful,... More

We read about Wild Fish on TripAdvisor and I must say that it did not disappoint! We made a 5:45 reservation for four people. The restaurant is very small and I would highly recommend a reservation, unless perhaps there are only two of you. We arrived promptly for our reservation and we were seated immediately. Our server was very friendly.... More

100% organic, 100% gluten free, 100% delicious. Most of the fish is locally sourced. This is a very small restaurant and yet we felt we could have a private conversation.
