Wildfish Seafood Grille - Scottsdale
Great Fresh FishWe have been looking for another fish restaurant and this was very good.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst-Time in ScottsdaleWe could not hae been happier with Scottsdale's Wildfish Seafood Grille. From the warm greeting at the door, to our outstanding server and bus help, all service was exceptional. Mike did an outstanding and memorable job as our server. His description of the menu was without the customary pause and/or referrence to notes. He spoke so intelligently on individual menu items, not simply suggesting higher-priced items. The wonderful dinner menu and wine list was a bit pricier than we expected, but oh so certainly worth it! We have recommended the restaurant to several people already, and we will be back on our next trip to Scottsdale.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Anniversary everit was our 30th anniversary and they treated us like royalty!A card, a cake, the manager stopped by our table, it was an amazing evening and they made it very special. Food is wonderful, service was perfect! Will be back again6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my Dad there for hisTook my Dad there for his 79th birthday. I had been there a few times before as it is in my neighborhood. Food and service was very good. A bit higher priced than what I am used to paying but it was a special occasion. Also my Dad wanted raw oysters and this was the only place in the neighborhood that served raw oysters. I would eat here every week if I could afford it. Definitely would repeat.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Fresh Seafood SelectionWe visited this restaurant about 6 years ago on one of our prior vacations. The fish was great then and the quality has remained the same. We had a very friendly waiter, but everyone was there to help making sure our dining experience was enjoyable. We had their salad with beets, apples and greens with a light vinegarette dressing. It had these delicious razcherries which is a dried fruit made in Arizona. At home, we have had them shipped for a special treat in our salads. My Husband had the Chilean Sea Bass which can only be described as amazing. My Grouper was lightly coated with breadcrumbs and seared in the pan. It was served in a broth/butter sauce. Not salty but perfectly cooked. We plan to visit one last time before departure!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food and ServiceWe took my father here for his birthday. He is a fish connoisseur and couldn't have been more impressed with his meal, as were the rest of us. We'll definitely return and make this one of our favorite dining spots.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWowed my friends...and me too!I had only been here once for Happy Hour several months ago, but knew I wanted to go again for dinner, so when my birthday came around I felt it was the appropriate occasion for another visit. I was not disappointed. The bread was fresh and warm from the oven. The drinks were well made and potent. And everyone enjoyed their food. One of my friends sent me a text message the next day indicating that she was still in awe of her salmon and one of the scallops I shared. The Godiva chocolate ganache cake was exquisite – not too heavy, not drowning in a super syrupy sauce – but light with adequate, but not overwhelming richness. It was the perfect ending to a festive evening. Will be back soon!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBest fish I have had in a long timeWe had a nice quite night out at wildfish. The service was top, ask for Robbie. The noise level was just right. Some background but you could easily talk around the table. The food stole the show. Three out of the four of us had fish. The copper river salmon, sea bass and group were all incredible. My sister had a NY strip and we all had a bite. If you are looking for high quality seafood this is the place. I would highly recommend.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood done right!Good selection of both raw and cooked seafood. Nice atmosphere, good service and perfectly prepared dishes. Would definitely recommend.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhet your appetiteWe tried Wildfish during Arizona Restaurant Week. The salt and pepper shrimp appetizer knocked our socks off! We would come back just for that.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us were there to celebrateFour of us were there to celebrate a birthday, We originally we seated outside (our choice) and then were told that Happy Hour was only in the bar area. The servers very nicely re-seated us and made us comfortable.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst-time diners (three)Wonderful service by our waiter, Ramone. Excellent attention to our every need and very helpful with our selections. Loved all of the fish entrees ordered (Chilean sea bass outstanding). Wines were excellent and salad equally satisfying. Will return to try other choices on the menu as well. Comfortable atmosphere which welcomes you on entering. Can't wait to try lunch and/or brunch. This is a lovely experience of fine dining worth repeating. Pricey but well worth it. Will definitely recommend to others.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visit Scottsdale once forWe visit Scottsdale once for twice a year and always include dinner at Wildfish as our special night out. The food is always excellent and the waiters very attending. Save room for the pineapple upside down cake. I it alone is worth the visit.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHanging OutMy sister and I try new and different places once a month. we both enjoyed Wildfish and would come back! Infact we are inviting our friends to join us for a happy hour. Worth the drive, walk or event. Great food.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat 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 AMWe eat here all the time andWe eat here all the time and have to say it is our favorite restaurant in Arizona. so my review may be a bit biased. Truthfully, the service is great, food quality is very very good, and the restaurant has a very cool vibe to it.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 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 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!

It's our go to place to take visiting family and friends when they come to visit us in Phoenix.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile staying in downtown,While staying in downtown, Phoenix, we decided to visit Scottsdale for dinner. 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. Food, service and attention to detail.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything is always top-notch!Everything is always top-notch! And our server (Amanda) is always very right-on!!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
