A word from Wildfish - Arlington Heights
Wildfish is located in the heart of downtown Arlington Height, delivering the concept of contemporary Japanese dining by fusing traditional and urban cultures. Wildfish has been known to be a hidden gem as it is tucked away in the corner of downtown Arlington Heights. Wildfish’s establishment in 2001 paved the way for its sister restaurants in Deerfield and Batavia.

Diner Reviews
  • "Tried to get here a couple of times in the past and couldn't get in because the place was packed. Don't let that fool you. It's tiny inside which is why it packs out quickly. The food was average. Service was average. Too many other great choices in the area to go here again."

  • "Dinner here was characterized by excellent, tender sushi, and friendly, competent service!"

  • "Although it is a very small place, the atmosphere was welcoming, the service was good and the food was even better. The price was very good as well. Better selections and food then some of the downtown Chicago sushi/Japanese restaurants and at a better price. Would definitely recommend to friends and will definitely come back"

  • "Have always liked Wildfish, pricey but good, but not so with their last Wednesday of the month buffet. They charge $35/person but try to get by on the cheap with the food. Trays of very ordinary sushi is put out in front of the sushi bar and sits out at room temperature until it is eaten. When we left after dinner the same sushi had been out for more than an hour and a half! You also have a very limited menu that you can order individual pieces of sushi from and this was very good. I would recommend only ordering from this and skip the "buffet" that reminds me of an all you can eat cheap chinese buffet restaurant. "

  • "My most recent meal was really very nice. The place has a cozy family run feel about it. All the sushi was very fresh and well prep-pared. The prices were reasonable. The service was friendly and somewhat inattentive. I would definitely go there again."

  • "Very large selection of sushi with spicy ones specifically marked. Also a good selection of sake and wine. Everything we've had from here has been very good. Will certainly come back."

  • "I have dined at Wildfish several times, and all prior experiences were very good except for last weekend. The service was absolutely awful! My entrée arrived 40 minutes after my husbands. We had to search for our waitress and ask for additional beverages. The server didn't acknowledge how bad the service was on that Saturday evening. The table behind us complained of waiting for over 30 minutes for an additional glass of water. Yes the food is very good, but after this terrible service and lack of being acknowledged I don't think I will dine at this restaurant again."

  • "I've never had a bad experience here. The sushi is always so fresh and the best around. Try the Kiss of Fire, great flavor plus excellent presentation."

  • "Contacted already to your company and received a standardized, form type answer. Highly questionable practice and quite insulting if you ask me. I will no longer be using your service and will be call the restaurants directly for reservations. For a Billion dollar company, you'd think customer service and attention to detail would be at the forefront."

  • "First time diner. Sat in a private booth in back. Menu was extensive and pleasant. Even the house wine was surprisingly good. Not too pricey."

  • "We had been to Wildfish several time, but not in the past year. It is as good as we remember. The menu was large and the server helpful in recommending items that would give us a variety to sample. We will be back."

  • "Great sushi. Wait staff very helpful. We had the special of the day for New Year's Eve, it was outstanding. Premises were very clean and orderly."

  • "I was interested in some type of fish for dinner and found Wildfish. The location in the plaza is a bit difficult to find for a first-timer, but otherwise, the food was very good and the service was also good. I was able to have a nice dinner and will return if I'm in the area again."

  • "The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very good, and it was quiet and intimate enough to have a real conversation with my husband."

  • "as always very good food but tonight the service was not up to par."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "We have been many times and the food is always fresh. It seems like they have added additional seating making it very hard to have a private dinner with a date. Seems very cramped in there but the place was packed."

  • "Wonderful selection of fresh sushi in a cozy atmosphere. I would request a booth for a little more privacy and pay a little extra for the black rice in the rolls. Definitely worth a visit!"

  • "I had great experience for dinner the other night. All of the food was wonderfully prepared, very fresh, and great tasting. The Lomi Lomi Salmon appetizer is an interesting mix of old fashioned salmon with capers flavors, and an avocado cilantro southwestern flare that's great. The sushi B plate was excellent too - nice fresh nigiri and a rainbow roll. The rainbow roll had just the right amount of "bite" to the spicy tuna. The service was prompt, professional and friendly - very nice people. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food and ambiance inside are great."

  • "I have been here before and loved it, I live in the area and the black rice option is amazing. The food was outstanding and my group had a wonderful time, except we were about 10-15 minutes from leaving and the restaurant was closed and we were told to leave. I wasn't able to finishing my drink. So apparently spending over $100 doesn't cut it for the staff to wait an extra ten minutes until they're customers are done. I still highly recommend the place and I will be going back but just make sure u go early enough so this wouldn't happen to you."

  • "It was my first visit at Wildfish and it was a great decision...the personnel greets you when they hear the door open, and not only the ”front” person but also the ”sushi masters”... the sitting area is open but there are few more secluded booths...the waitress was nice and knows the food and wine menus..... and food was fresh and delicious..we ordered seaweed salad, tuna/salomone tartar, green dragon, volcanoes, crazy dragon ....and every single item was perfect. I recommended the Wildfish to everyone who likes Japanese food."

  • "Wildfish is our go to spot to celebrate family birthdays. The rolls are always great, especially the Ocean Drive, Scary Spider and Indiana Jones. Our only complaint is the loud, pulsing 90's music. It seemed like the wait staff really dug the tunes, but not the clientele."
    Dined on 5/4/2013
  • "I have been a regular here for years. LOVED it. Past tense. The service is quickly going down hill. The last few visits have been bad. The food quality seem to be declining and even more frustrating...Wait staff is horrible! Waitress disapears, mis-charges our bill, doesn't fix...After the second bad experience we asked to speak to a manager, who was EQUALLY horrible. Offered no apology or solution. After years of dedicated patronage...it's unlikely I will return."

  • "Enjoyed it quite a bit. Like other reviewers noted, the tables are pretty close together, but we still felt we weren't being listened to. Great food, good prices. Try it out!"

  • "We love the people at Wildfish. The sushi is first-rate, and their prepared dishes are equally as good."

  • "Great food, and attentive server. Just an fyi, some tables are very close together so you can be "on top" of other customers."

  • "We booked an 8:45 reservation on New Year's Eve thinking we would have ample time to enjoy a nice relaxing dinner. After sitting down and ordering an appetizer, we were then told that the kitchen closes in 10 minutes. Needless to say, we were very rushed. It would have been nice if they has told us when we made the open table reservation. Restaurant was a mess. Food was just average."
    Dined on 12/31/2012
  • "Great place. Sushi was really good. Best in suburbs I've ever had. However the prices were kinda high for what you get. Sake flight of 3 ($12), one martini ($11) and three makis @ $16 each came to $91 for two people with tip. (The Martini was okay at best) My theory is if want really good sushi but dont feel like driving to Chicago then go here. Be warned you will pay a premium though. Otherwise if you take the 30min drive to Chicago you will get the same quality sushi at half the price. Drive 30mins and pay less or stay suburban and pay more....your call"

  • "Service was slow. There were 3 in our party & we ordered 3 different appetizers. They brought 1 of 3 out but the other two cam out much later when we got our sushi."
    Dined on 11/17/2012
  • "The food was very good but the server was over burdened - one server for too many people. We were never asked if we wanted a second round of drinks and water glasses sate empty often."

  • "Absolutely, a gem in the northwest suburbs. I would encourage everyone to try it."

  • "We were greeted at the door and seated promptly. We came for the once a month all you can eat special. The waitress didn't explain the menu that well and didn't tell us that dessert was included. We would have paid our bill and left if we hadn't noticed this on the special menu. However sushi was delicious although some of the the buffet appetizers would go quickly and not always available."
