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.

    This place is perfect for a birthday! I booked it for my 25th and had nothing but the absolute best time. It was everything that I wanted. The place itself is adorable and the show was amazing!!!!!!!!!! Definitely a must go!!! All of the staff were attentive and polite, always asking if we needed anything. The only one thing that I have negative to say is about the bill. They only do one bill or two bills per party which I understand, However, it’s annoying for guests to track down friends after an event and have them pay you. If separate checks were allowed, I think this place would have a ton more business because it makes it easier for the guests. Everyone can order whatever they want and not have to worry about being stuck with someone else’s bill. Other than that, the wilder was 11+ stars in my book, I will definitely go here again!!

    Very different from a regular restaurant, low tables and unfortunately I made a reservation and planned with others from an old menu and got there and had a totally different menu that some didn't like so we had to leave. I should have done better research, but a good place to relax and drink

    The decor was amazing. The overall dancers were great. The food was tasty. However, the service sucked. The music was so loud that the server completely missed my fiancés order so he had to sit there & watch me eat then when we did get to out the order on for pancakes it took them 40 minutes to make it on top of him already sitting there for 20 minutes while watching me eat. Then he missed our drink orders so we drank water the entire time. I wish I got the servers name but they give you a phone to pay the bill instead of a receipt & he hovered over us the entire time so we couldn’t find his name. The music was so loud we couldn’t even communicate between one another. I under the atmosphere BUT it should be loud enough to have a good time but still to communicate with others. I’d recommend coming for the show n drinks only as the food is great but the tables & seating aren’t meant for eating they’re meant for a club. You’re literally sitting as if you’re in VIP but surrounded by everyone watching you eat.

    Honestly a very cute experience. The food was top notch. The one small complaint is if you are going for brunch and trying to eat the tables are far too low to have a meal at. Pretty uncomfortable actually. If they could just get taller tables I feel like the place would be perfect. Our waiter and The entertainers were all so good it made up for the inconvenient eating experience.

    If you're looking for a loud and involved Sunday brunch, you have come to the right place. The music and show was vibrant and toyed with the audience as we ate our meals. They had a collection of brunch items with exotic names to go along with their overall theme, and it plays well to the setup of the environment inside. The event is over four hours, but it seems they are in two hours increments. We had a total party of 4 for the reservation, and got there early enough to sit next to our other party of 3, for a total of 7 people. The food was good, but the steak was not prepared the way I ordered it (I ordered rare, and it was presented to me as medium-well). I did not send it back because I feared they would not be able to prepare in the manner I ordered again, and did not wish to disturb the show. The show was fun, but minimal. There were two total performers, and although they both had two unique shows, was underwhelming for a two hour brunch. The group and I would've liked to see other shows/acts from multiple people instead of what we got. That should not deter you from going however, as it was worth every penny. These are just minor complaints that remove the possibility of receiving 5 stars. All in all, I would go back to another Sunday brunch as we truly enjoyed our time and they were able to help us celebrate one of our medical school friend's birthday with us. I simply would not order the steak again. Lastly, the alcohol does seem to be light handed on the pour, as I had their 10 shot bird cage, and then went out to another bar afterwards drinking more, and was still sober over the four hour period.

    OMG!!! This New Yorker was not sure what to expect. I came with my boyfriend for Sunday brunch. The food was delicious, the drinks were great, and the ambiance with the burlesque dancers topped it all off. I will definitely be back when I’m in town. This place is a must. Oh and their sound system…wicked!!! And, the staff everyone were super nice, which added to the experience. LOVE this place!!!

    The service was mediocre to say the least. They kept trying to reseat me and my group including offering to seat us outdoors when my party was the first to arrive to the venue. At 1 point the waitress questioned one of my guests 3 times about a drink she requested and never received. $12 for 3 silver dollar spread cheese and kernel corn "croquettes" is ludicrous especially. No sodas for non alcohol drinkers, so I stayed with water the entire experience.
