I usually do not eat in hotel restaurants. This place is an exception. My wife and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day, one day early. We are both fish and seafood lovers. We started with baked oysters. I would have rather gone for the raw oysters but my wife does not eat raw seafood. I suggest not going for the baked oysters. We celebrated with 2 delicious fish dinners, a pecan-crusted grouper made with a Lemon Beurre Blanc and served with a "Carolina" gold rice, whatever that is. The second fish dish was the Atlantic Monkfish Loin made with smoked Gouda, sweet corn, succotash, and jalapeños. I enjoyed everything. My Asian wife did not care for the rice but enjoyed everything else. She prefers the standard Chinese style of course. Had we known the portions would be big enough we would not have ordered the Crispy Maple-glazed brussels sprouts as an extra side dish. There was no room for dessert. We had to walk off dinner on Las Olas. Our server, Grace was excellent. We valeted the car and it turned out that showing proof of dinner, valet parking was free! This is a $$$$ restaurant with an excellent selection of wines and cocktails. We would come here again for a special occasion.

Our server Byron, and his assistant, just gave that good old fashioned superior friendly, thorough and timely service. Worth the visit alone. What a pleasant surprise in getting off the Water Taxi, immediately coming upon this higher end but reasonably priced restaurant with a unique items breakfast menu, all so delicious and attractively presented. Added bonus - the coffee had exceptional flavour and they leave a whole pot at the table, that retains its' heat throughout the meal.

Great oysters and happy hour ($1.75 oysters before 7pm), fresh seafood, outdoor seating for Las Olas people watching and excellent service. Grace took great care of us and recommended a lovely and very reasonably priced Spanish white wine for us. Wonderful experience and will be coming back. Would recommend the oysters and smoked salmon/fish dip, avoid the octopus since it was a little chewy. Highly recommend.

My wife and myself brought the new year in at wild sea as we do visit here often. Zac and Yamila were fantastic behind the bar. They are attentive and masters at the craft especially on a busy night. Albert the general manager came out to wish us a happy new year and as usual see how we were doing. Chef Justin came out to make sure my wife’s meal was good as she has celiacs disease and he always makes sure that her dinner is safe and not cross contaminated with gluten. The curry shrimp dinner she eats is phenomenal as is the double fried short rib. We just can not say enough about this restaurant and the service they provide. We highly recommend this restaurant for anyone that wants a great atmosphere, wonderful service and amazing food.

Las Olas offers so many restaurants of varying quality. Wild Sea offers a quality experience. The restaurant is nicely designed with a bar area. There is also some outside dining. I ordered the grouper which was flash fried with a beurre blanc sauce with a touch of olive oil. The group was set in a bed of rice. The fish was properly cooked and flavorful. The server offered a reasonably priced wine to pair with the fish. Wild Oats has more of a casual elegant atmosphere and good people watching.

Tucked into the middle of the famous Las Olas shopping district, Wild Sea Oyster Bar & Grille is an excellent seafood restaurant. Inside is a bit more formal than an outside table but the food is the same either way. All of the fish we had was extremely fresh and cooked to perfection. The grilled octopus for appetizers is a must, great flavor and not chewy like many restaurants serve that is over cooked. The oysters were fresh and briny. For the mains, the Pecan Encrusted Grouper was out of this world! While the pricing is a bit on the high side, it is well worth it.

I'll start my review by stating I did not eat at the Wild Sea Oyster. We stayed at the Riverside Hotel and walked by it many times and wanted to but just never did venture in. My review has more to do with the staff that we encountered there. While my group was departing for a deep sea fishing adventure we gathered just outside as the staff were setting up in the morning. We were told that the chef would be able to prepare any fresh catch at the restaurant and we should come back if we were successful. Turns out, we caught a King Mackerel and it was brought back fresh filleted, on ice, where we were promptly met by a chef who stated he was not willing to touch it because of health reasons. His reasoning was understandable but his methodology and support staff's communication were not. We left dejected because of the false hope and continued our search for a table for 12 on what has to be a slower night (Sunday). This is when Albert, the food and beverage manager, came to the rescue. Albert tracked me down, helped me out as much as possible with my catch and got me in touch with an owner who had a restaurant and was willing to take care of our needs. Big kudos to Albert for going that extra mile to see to a potential customer's satisfaction.

It was our pleasure to help in any way we could. As it turns out Ft. Lauderdale is a small town and my friend was able to accommodate. My only regret is not being able to join everyone enjoying that 10 pounder! Our Chefs' number one concern is our guests' safety and health. We want nothing more than to exceed your expectations, and that includes keeping you healthy. I'm so glad our neighbors were able to help and I am certainly jealous! Looking forward to seeing you again after your next trip! All the best, Albert Black Food and Beverage Manager

Dined here last night- without reservation. Jonathan was our waiter and he couldn't have been any nicer! My husband and I shared the burrata with heirloom tomatoes which Jonathan recommended. He was knowledgeable about the preparation and he wasn't wrong. It was delicious! For our entrees my husband ordered the Shrimp Island Curry which he thoroughly enjoyed. He thought it had a good curry flavor with just the right amount of heat. I ordered the tuna entree which Jonathan recommended to order rare (which I did). I think it may rank as the best tuna dish I have ever had. The portion was shockingly large and had a light sauce which enhanced the already delicious and very fresh tuna. I opted to leave off the spicy broccolini, so they gave me an extra helping of the mushrooms which were WONDERFUL!! Again, the sauce was spiced perfectly and absolutely delicious. My husband had to help me finish them and agreed how delicious they were. The maitre-d was attentive and came by to make sure we were enjoying our dining experience. We highly recommend Wild Sea and if you go, ask for Jonathan. He was absolutely perfect! Thank you Wild Sea for a lovely dinner!

My wife and I had been to Las Olas before but had never tried Wild Sea Oyster bar and grille. Well let me tell you they did not disappoint. The atmosphere was great and the entire staff was amazing. Our server Julio was very attentive and gave us great recommendations. We had the Ahi tuna tacos and seared crab cakes as our starters and for our main course we had the Pecan crusted gulf grouper and grilled salmon filet. Julio recommended the Soy Mirin Glazed broccolini & shitake as a side and they were amazing. My wife and I were celebrating our 7th anniversary and Julio offered us a dessert that was not on the menu which was a beignet filled with Key Lime. Needless to say it was delicious.

There really isn’t much more to say about this restaurant. The bartenders Hanna and Zac continue to be the great bartending team that makes everyone comfortable. The mixology of the drinks and the unique tastes are what separates this restaurant from everyone else. My wife eat here frequently and they continue to shine on the menu options and the great strengths they go to to make sure my wife’s meals are safe ( my wife has celiacs disease). The overall vibe in the restaurant is very upbeat and that is in part to the bartending tram behind that bar of Hanna and Zac. We highly recommend you visit this establishment and try some of the very delicious drinks and there spectacular menu! Especially the east coast oysters!!

Nice dining experience with Grace for my husband’s birthday. From the appetizers(burratta salad & crab cake), entrees(jambalaya special, tasty grouper and delicious red snapper) and phenomenal chocolate peanut butter dessert, we thoroughly enjoyed. Restaurant has gone to great lengths to ensure compliance with COVID guidelines. The only problem was parking. Restaurant/hotel parking is in the parking deck which requires the app to pay. Not a big deal but wish we would have just Uber’d. Great meal and highly recommend!

I start of by saying Judith is the best! my girlfriend and I came for lunch we stayed at the W hotel we was in Fort Lauderdale for a week and I came to lunch on Saturday not to busy my girlfriend and I sat at the bar and Judith was behind the bar. She welcome us with a friendly smile yes we could see right through that mask she told us about the special 4 dollar drinks, I had a dozen of the raw oysters and my girlfriend had the spinach and artichoke for appetizers. I wanted to order a dozen more oysters but I needed room for the chicken sandwich Judith recommend me to get and my girlfriend the fish sandwich blackened style! I am not mad I stopped by the wild sea restaurant at all! The food is Delicious the server is great, attentive, very knowledgeable about the menu. She gave us the history of the hotel which we didn’t even know that the wild sea is part of the Riverside Hotel next year will definitely be our stay she told us about the brunch on Sunday which was our last day because we had to go back home our flight was a late evening flight the next day therefore we came back for brunch just for Judith! She is the greatest and we will be back again because her personality, her friendliness and the attention she gives us was the best experience we had since our vacation here. Hope All Is well and stay safe!

We came on a Monday night when they have $1 raw oysters. I’m not even a huge oyster fan and it was fabulous! We also tried the baked oysters, pecan crusted yellow fish, and cioppino. All of it was wonderful and we wish we could’ve kept eating. Our server Adam is what made the experience for us. He was very entertaining and fun to talk back and forth with. He was also very helpful and gave us a few suggestions on places to go and things to see while in town. We will definitely be back just on the experience Adam created alone. Covid notes: Menus were offered through QR codes, all servers were wearing masks, tables more than 6 feet apart, and plastic barriers were set up between tables. We felt plenty safe and comfortable.

This is an excellent restaurant...made all the better that we were staying in the Riverside Hotel it is housed in. My wife and I went for brunch this past Sunday and enjoyed $4 mimosas. The honey french toast and apple pie pancakes from the griddle were outstanding. We went back the following day for lunch and enjoyed the $10 special pulled pork melt and $1 oysters. Great service (waiter Josh) and excellent food!

when seated for breakfast at this upscale restaurant in the Riverside Hotel I was surprised at the low prices of the breakfast menu They were less than my neighborhood dinner. Byron, our waiter made me feel very special with his attention to my interest and selection of a very diverse menu. Bryon's service, the excellent menu, the upscale ambience, the Las Olas location and the perfectly cooked meal, made for a great start of my day.
