Description: The only thing primitive about Wildfish Seafood Grille is the swimmingly fresh seafood -- mostly caught the day before and shipped next day on ice. Otherwise, this cosmopolitan bistro is as sophisticated as any fine eatery in New York or Vegas. Burnished wood, dim theatrical lighting, cozy tables, a stylish exhibition kitchen and central bar with several TVs available to catch the game embellish the interior. Veteran restaurateurs Guy Villavaso and Larry Foles (Z'Tejas, Eddie V's Edgewater Grille) have created a fierce seafood-steakhouse combination, which attracts food-loving couples, ladies on a luxurious night out and sexy singles at the bar. Because Wildfish is not as wallet-busting as similar concepts in the area, go ahead and start with a spicy lump crab cake surrounded in a buttery remoulade sauce. If you're in the mood for steak, pick a finely aged filet, rib eye or veal chop.

“A great dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

This place is a very happening spot with great seafood and atmosphere. Perfect help and guidance from our waiter (Tony); he made our 12 and 15 year old kids feel at home and treated them with the same respect as the adults. The food and wine were great (I had the Alaskan Halibut special).

“Excellent Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

I have been going to Wildfish since they opened. Their food is excellent, especially the crabcakes and chopped salad. Even though they are a "seafood" restuarant I've also had their filet which was some of the best steak I've ever had. The service is top notch too!

“Oh, my! Best restaurant ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

From the time we were warmly greeted until we left the staff (as new friends), we were treated with humor, professionism, and culinary delights. The three of us were on a quick trip to Arizona to celebrate our daughter's birthday and had read the good reviews on Trip Advisor. They are all true! The lobster bisque is to die for..along with the sea bass entree and the halibut special. But, save room for the blackberry cobbler. Our waiter, Bob, was superb and we had a glorious time, relaxing and enjoying the best meal we have ever had!

“Topnotch seafood for the desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Fine food and excellent service. The calamari was presented differently than I had ever experienced and had a pleasant kick to it with the spices utilized, and the quantity provided was ample for four. My burmundi was perfect, and my wife was wild about her lobster tacos. This is a very popular and very noisy venue, so don't come here, if you're looking for a quiet ambience, or if you've got important things to discuss. If you're into good seafood though that's expertly prepared, Wildfish is your place.
