A word from Wildfish Seafood Grille - Scottsdale
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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "When we walked in they told us we could sit it the bar or at a table. We chose a table in the bar and were not sorry. Server was attentive and knowledgable and the food was fantastic. We had a salad and fish and it was the best fish we've had I some time-not overpowering sauce and cooked perfectly. I don't write reviews but had to for this one. We will be back."

  • "Being that you are a seafood restaurant, I can really appreciate that there are many, relatively healthy choice options on the menu. I really enjoyed my Asian Barbequed Salmon Entrée. Plus, the Brussel Sprouts, are always a winner! Will be back to try other menu items."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Although the halibut was likely left under a warmer too long, it was still well prepared and the scallops were, as usual, an easy winner. Fresh fish, service that's not overbearing and comfort makes Wildfish a regular choice for seafood for me."

  • "I had the grouper and was disappointed in the way it was described on the menu from the way it was served. It was in a plate of liquid and the menu said crispy. I did not like the sauce as it had very little flavor. the fish was very well cooked and they they ruined it in the sauce. I also thought my partner's ahi was a little too rare with not enough sear. other wise it was very good."

  • "Wildfish has well prepared fresh seafood including bluepoint oysters on the half shell which were exceptional. The service was incredibly friendly and efficient. I received a complimentary desert on my birthday as well. You can't go wrong!!"

  • "Had several fantastic dishes featuring some of the freshest fish I can recall in the valley. I have just returned from the Mediterranean where I had sampled much seafood, and these dishes would stand up against everything I enjoyed there. With such high quality fish, I was a bit overwhelmed by the preparations which might have been less complex allowing the fish to be more present. On my next visit I plan to choose accordingly. The shrimp cocktail was served with amazing sauce and "atomic" horseradish, but the shrimp themselves seemed a little mealy but I would order again just to enjoy the sauce. Finally, my table was in an area subject to foot traffic and I wish the atmosphere could have been a bit calmer."

  • "food delish, ambience...very dark, server too ambitious. Too many people standing to greet you at door. I would indeed go back as food was very good and well presented. Lighting bad!"

  • "Do not know how to start but simply to say that was our first time there and everything was great except one little hick up. The food was one of the best my wife and I has had in a long time. The place looked great the way it was laid out. Beautiful lighting. The only hick up was that we ordered appetizers and then dinner and the dinner came out when I was only half way through my appetizer causing my dinner to sit on the table while I tried to finish my App. Which was so great I had to finish it, (Crab Cake) We had the Ahi Tuna and the Shrimp/crab meat dish. Both of them were also great, the tasting of both dishes where spot on for us. We will be back for sure, we will also recommend this place to all our friends."

  • "My husband and I went to Wildfish for our anniversary, and it was a fabulous experience. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food they served. They also had a table waiting for us with a "Happy Anniversary" card on the table signed by the whole staff plus rose petals on the table for us. Our food was phenomenal and I can't wait to go back! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves seafood."

  • "This was our second trip to Wildfish. It was excellent ! The food was fantastic, my wife and I both had specials. She had the Surf and Turf, I sampled her steak, it was tender and flavorful. I had the Sea Bass special, it was a large portion and tasted great. The side of broccoli was a great complement to our meal. Our server was very professional and attentive. We'd highly recommend this restaurant, and will go back !"

  • "We had a great experience at Wildfish. The service was top notch and the food was to die for. Recommend the lobster tacos for an appetizer and the swordfish steak for an entree. It is pricy, but so worth it for fresh, very well-prepared seafood in AZ. My only complaint was sitting outside gives you a very un-romantic view of Camelback Road, but that was our fault, as we asked to sit on the patio. The inside is beautiful, modern and classy. We will definitely be back."

  • "we met friends and ordered the salmon and sole both were more than enough and crispy on the outside; tender, juicy and flaky on the inside. sides of asparagus, stuffed potato and spinach paired nicely with the main dish. 1/2 of my meal, side and desert was taken home. our waiter actually waited and was really patient realizing that we haven't seen our friends in a few months and really wanted to catch up. oh, i almost forgot to mention the crusty old fashioned bread! yum. thanks wildfish for a great night.

  • "I have dinned at the Wild Fish many times over the past few years. I find my self always going back. The fresh oysters, Batterfried oysters and Lobster tacos appetizers are to die for. My favorite entrée is the Chilean Sea Bass (Steamed Hong Kong Style). My favorite side dish is the Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Shallots. The staff is so friendly and accommodating at the same time, you feel so special. The manager, I think his name is Damon is great."

  • "Went on the Arizona Restaurant Special to try to find good fish in the Phoenix area. Were surprised that only two items on the special menu were fish. The lemon sole was very good. Appetizers were both good, so was dessert. Service was very attentive and prompt."

  • "Swanky spot in Scottsdale. Each dish from salads to entree was cooked perfectly. Service very attentive. Had the Chilean Seabass which I would HIGHLY recommend. Wine list is unfortunately not adequate for choices or high quality to match the food. Don't plan on leaving for less than $300 for 2 at dinner."
