Wildfish Seafood Grille - Scottsdale
Repeat CustomerDined at WF at least 15 times and it never disappoints. Probably the best crab cake and sea bass that I've ever eaten. The Calamari appetizer is just wonderful. Service is always better than good.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food very well prepared,Excellent Food very well prepared, fresh and delicious5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best restaurant experienceThe crab cakes are the best. 100% crab with no filler. It is huge, and not even close to ones at the Ocenaire in San Diego. The service was second to none. Waitors were dressed in clean Tuxedos. I had the barbeque salmon. It was perfectly seared on the outside and still salmon on the inside. My side was brussels sprouts which were also tastefully done. She had a type of light, flaky, buttery fish with asparagus. For desert we had the pineappe upside-down cake. Again, the best heap of sugar I have experienced.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMToo Loud!Although the food and service and service are excellent, the noise level is painful. Seriously detracts from the enjoyment of the good food! Additionally, although the restaurant is handicapped accessible, it is difficult. My mother (96) uses a walker and the length of the walk from the front of the restaurant to the back and then up a ramp was almost impossible. Furthermore, if she had used her wheelchair, I don't know how we would have maneuvered through the restaurant at all.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time!Celebrated an anniversary here earlier in the week. Exceptional food and service!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was great, I lovedRestaurant was great, I loved the dim lights. We went on our anniversary , staff treated us with respect, decorated the table for us. Best part was dinner was great especially I loved their ahi tuna steak with salad. Decor was nice. Service was good and fis was fresh. I would definitely come back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great exceptEverything was great except the champagne I ordered was not very cold. Maybe serving it in a chilled glass would help.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA server makes the difference...We went for our final dinner in Scottsdale and had a great Happy Hour experience. Great bar menu and really a good value. Things went downhill after going to our table. Our server was pleasant enough, but only halfway doing her job. After we had our food we heard 2 other servers (on either side of us) describe the specials not on the menu. We were encouraged to order the large twice baked potato side...which would serve 6 not 2...what a waste. She never asked if we wanted another glass of wine and then brought the check without telling us about our dessert choices. She left us with the feeling that she just wanted to speed things along either to turn the table quickly or to be through with her shift. Won't return!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinner.Food was excellent. Growing up in the pacific north west It is hard to find good seafood in AZ. You accomplished that very well. Calamari, swordfish, halibut, salad with shrimp crab. Very very good. I will defently be back. You have a customer for life.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought a friend from WisconsinI brought a friend from Wisconsin for a nice dinner (she was trying to get away from the cold and winter!)and she was more than pleased with the opportunity to sit outside in such a lovely setting. We both very much enjoyed or dinner selections and the drinks and the wait staff was very responsive to our every need. All in all it was a great choice for dinner.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfish was pretty good.Wildfish was pretty good. The staff was wonderful, but the food wasn't quite worth that price tag. We were there for our wedding anniversary and the staff did a beautiful job with fresh rose pedals and a cute card on the table. Not to mention our dessert was on the house! (Fantastic molten chocolate cake BTW) Overall, may not go back to sit down at a table, but maybe for the awesome happy hour at the bar.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcelleant food, the serviceExcelleant food, the service at first was quite good but then slipped as the meal progressed. A new wave of tables had been seated all seemed to be in the section of the restaurant where we were seated. Our waiter appeared to have been assigned too many new tables while he had his previous assigned tables to attend to.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great! AmbianceThe food was great! Ambiance was good and was quiet until it started to fill up and then was moderate. Outdoor dining is available if you don't mind the traffic on Camelback. All dishes were a la cart so expect to sepend a little more if you want salad, vegetables, etc. with your entre. We both had one of the specials and it was really super and had enough left to take home.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Seafood in ScottsdaleThis is in the top 5 of my favorite restaurants in Phoenix. The seafood is always great. It is a delight to have dinner on their patio watching the people and traffic on Camelback Road. So far this restaurant has maintained it's high standards and great menu even though they were sold to the same people who own Red Lobster and Olive Garden.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were bothFood and service were both top notch. AQsk for Nikko. He is the best and most knowledgable of any server I have encountered. Always was one step ahead without rushing. We celebrated a very special birthday and he made her feel like a million bucks. The chef didn't let us down either. Fresh halibuit and scallops were outstanding-cooked perfectly. Pineapple upside down cake was areal treat too.
I will recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and a fun time.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Hour menu food and wineHappy Hour menu food and wine was excellent and a good value. Required lounge seating was OK too. Overall an enjoyable experience and we will visit again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great exceptEverything was great except the noise level!

Wanted to sit on the patio, but it was booked understandbly. Nevertheless, had a nice table inside. My wife had the swordfish, I had scallops - both excellent. Our server was attentive and knew the menu well. Prices were a bit high, but reflective of the quality experienced. Overall, a very enjoyable evening3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfish was exactly whatWildfish was exactly what you would expect...very luxurious Scottsdale restaurant. The service was excellent, again I say excellent. The perfect amount of attention without the overbearing interruptions or attention needy waiter that you get sometimes with good service.
The issue was the food. It was good, nothing bad or horrible, but nothing popped with the same caliber as the rest of the restaurant. We ordered: Crab Cake(good), Chowder Soup(runny and just ok) the market special(Washington Trout over asparagus with crab)(great trout, rest ok),their signature dish(Sea Bass over spinach with suace - cannot remember the name)(bland) and pinnaple upside down cake (AMAZING)
Good but not worth the cash - could get better for half the c3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMYum, yum, and yum. My boyfriendYum, yum, and yum. My boyfriend and I went to Wildfish on a Friday night. The place had a busy, fun vibe. We had the salmon and the chilean sea bass and will definitely have them both again. For sides we had Brussels sprouts and the mac and cheese. They were fabulous together. We ordered large sides and figured we would have leftovers. Nope. For the perfect end to the meal, we had the pineapple upside down cake. We left with big smiles on our faces. We'll be back very soon!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was fabulous. Food,Everything was fabulous.

The meal and service were outstanding.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my favoriteThis is one of my favorite places because the food is always fresh! The deep fried battered oysters are 'flas fried' and melt in your mouth. The crab cake is tasty and not loaded with fillers, you get the crab...a must try! The only reason I have not given 5 stars across the board is because there is always room for improvement...not that I can think of anything at this time.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe shellfish is always fresh,The shellfish is always fresh, the service is quick with a smile and attentiveness. The wine served for Happy Hour is on par with the dinner menu, you cannot go wrong.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThere simply is no betterThere simply is no better place for oysters on the 1/2 shell!3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAhi appetizer was delicious.Ahi appetizer was delicious. We enjoyed our salad and entrees, but the ahi was really the star. Our sea bass was Market Price and we should have asked the cost before we ordered it. It was way too expensive for what you got. We'll be back, but will probably stick with ordering a couple appetizers. Also, our table was at the top of the entry stairs and was very busy. Should have asked to move early on, but didn't. My husband adds that the upside down cake for dessert was outstanding!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEaten at this wonderful restaurantEaten at this wonderful restaurant 6-7 times. Always an outstanding dining experience. One of the world's greatest crab cakes. Wonderful service..love their wine list. Can't imagine going to Spring Training without dining here.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is excellent, butThe food is excellent, but somewhat overpriced. The service was very good, except they threw out our "doggie bag" and had to replace it. They were very accommodating for my friends wife in a wheelchair. This is the second time we have had a service problem at WidlFish.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
