$30 and under
Tapas / Small Plates
This is the watering hole for bon vivants with a vision.
The venue offers a cool, relaxing, intoxicating space where you can escape with friends and get lost in a moment. It is comprised of three rooms with distinct personality - A cocktail bar, turning out masterfully executed libations, a terrace, for sun-drenched revelry, and a scintillating great room, hosting near-nightly parties for a sophisticated collection of clientele.

The atmosphere at the WILDER is playful, but elevated, intoxicating, but familiar, tropical, enticing, and a place to, well, get WILD, that feels more like a secluded, storybook escape than a bar or lounge. Guests are at ease, and the staff is polished, friendly, and faultless.

The wilder is always such a good time. Took my friends this weekend and they loved it. The only thing I was sad about was the chicken pizza that they used to have. It was so delicious. If you’re there also try their old fashions, it’s my favorite drink to have.

Sat outside for tapas and drinks. Service was great and fast. I wish there was a bit more outside lighting. Otherwise, it was a great experience!

This is such an amazing hidden gem the food was all good. Ribs, empanadas, wings, goat cheese croquettes, lamb lollipop all amazing. El Diablo cocktail is amazing. Everything was really good. I will definitely be back hopefully it won't be storming so we can sit outside. Secret Garden meets foodie heaven

I really only went for drinks and apps but honestly the drinks were mediocre so we went somewhere else to eat. The music was so loud that I was practically yelling across the table and unfortunately there was a private event on the outside so even with a reservation, I had to sit inside. Kinda disappointed but I may try again for happy hour one day.

We were sat right away having had a reservation. They forgot about us completely for about 30 minutes. No waitress came for water, menus etc.. Other than slow service, everything was great.

The place was amazing. The food was so good. Drinks were bomb. Waitstaff kept us wanting more. Drinks forgotten constantly. All good came at once to a tiny 2 top table. They weren’t overly friendly. We were let down by the service.

Great small plates and creative cocktails! Music was a bit too loud, even though we were early in the night. Tapas plates were so easy and we really enjoyed everything we got. Loved the Madame Pele!

The drinks were incredible, and the flavors of each Tapas ordered blended like a symphony on the palette Particular faves - the goat cheese croquettes, the watermelon salad and the pork empanadas.. Just overall well done. Whether cocktails or light fare, not a note missed for this diner.

We went here for our anniversary dinner, it was lovely. The service was great, the atmosphere cool. However they do not serve dinner here, we ordered basically one of each appetizer because that’s all there was. If you don’t drink, like I don’t, you feel like are we going to have to go get dinner after this?

Very good drinks and food, friendly service. We were seated outside on the patio, which was lovely and shaded. The service was very friendly and efficient. Everything came at our table fast and the food was delicious.

TL;DR unique cocktails, quiet happy hour

The Wilder has a great weekday happy hour, from 4-7 T-Th. Small plates and a special cocktail— and hardly anyone there. They have a spacious, shady patio, great service, and just an overall great experience. As we were leaving at 7:15 or so, lots more folks showing up— but if you’re just “getting out there”, I highly recommend!

I went there on a date and once a day cool atmosphere good cocktails and great food. We ended up having all three. We sat at a table top booth in the front bar and it was perfect. We ordered the potatoes which were off the chain. This ceviche and ribs were also delicious. The place has a very cool Speakeasy type vibe with a beautiful Garden Lounge entrance as well.

Went on a Sunday for the after brunch happy hour. We tried the meatballs, spinach artichoke dip and chicken quesadilla, each priced at $7 - each item was delicious! We tried a few specialty cocktails and order from the happy hour drink specials, no complaints -each drink was amazing! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and drinks with an awesome vibe! Cheers!

Horrible experience! Requested inside table and nothing available as front part of restaurant was closed. Sat outside at a wet table and chairs from the rain, big group close to us was super loud and kept adding people and sitting elbow to elbow with us and we had to pick up our table and move it, food is nothing but fried, greasy bar food and appetizer came out burnt. Wait staff ask for your credit card so they can swipe it before ordering anything - tacky. Very overpriced, overrated and overall horrible experience. Never going back for sure.

Super awesome atmosphere. The furniture is fun and the staff is attentive. Inside is not recommended for a first date if you want to hear each other, but very perfect for a group outing if you want to dance and enjoy the mood. Outside is better for talking.

We got sat in a corner next to a wall with metal chairs and had meh service. The food was amazing and so were the drinks, but everything else we were less than impressed. The service was poor, plain and simple.

The drinks and food were good and as advertised. You have options of where to sit, which is nice. The music is very loud though and sort of lost the feel of a speakeasy vibe. Before 9pm there is really no reason for it to be that loud.
