First time dining and can't wait to go back! Everything on the menu looked amazing and the plates coming out the kitchen were spectacular. Started off with wings and mac cheese. Probably the best wings we've ever had! My wife got the fried chicken and being from South Louisiana we can attest that this was some DAMN good fried chicken! The burger was one of the best I've had in SLC so far...it was HUGE!
Don't skip dessert! Peanut Butter cheesecake was divine!

If you are a party of two your table is extremely close to your neighbors making it very awkward. There were four other open tables with more space and no other reservations but they refused to seat us at them… and were rude about it.

We have enjoyed Wildwood ever since we moved here to Salt Lake City. While the menu isn’t huge, everything they make is interesting, tasty and in generous portions. Chef/Owner Michael Richey has s great, always so welcoming, and of course
Wine Coordinator Nathan (Nacho) Kearsley is always a pleasure to see.

Our server (I believe the receipt said his name was Nacho?) was so incredibly sweet, warming and welcoming to my boyfriend and I. Definitely went above and beyond for us and we’re so appreciative! What an excellent spot for people visiting SLC

We really loved the excellent menu — great variety and many appetizing options — and all was delicious, from burrata to beignets. The only shortcoming on the evening was the slow, and almost strange, efforts of our server. It was difficult to hear him, he offered cryptic responses, visited the table rarely, then disappeared late in the meal (we had to ask the hostess about our dessert, which had been waiting to be brought to the table, as well as for our bill). I am fairly sure this was all due to some issue with our server, and hopefully a one-off at the restaurant. We’ll return.

Friday night was our ladies halloween Black-Out affair. We dressed in costume and wanted to enjoy a memorable night together with great food and drinks, we knew exactly where to go. We love the quaint intimate space and the spectacular menu that frequently changes. So fun to be close to the open area kitchen and feel like you are part. The plating and presentation of each dish is damn near art, the pride the chef and line cooks take is impressive. Thank you for a great night. We will be back and next time we want the secret dining room downstairs🤫

My wife and I have been loyal diners at Wild Wood dating back to when it was called Avenues Bistro. We have always been very impressed by the selection of food and quality along with the exceptional service. Unfortunately, our last visit will be our last. The chef has changed the menu on several occasions, which I understand; however, each new menu offers more dishes laden with greasy foods. I admit, they have a great flavor but when you see puddles of grease on your plate, it becomes gross. We can deal with this is the chef is flexible on removing or substituting parts of the dish. I guess his arrogance has gotten the best of him. Our last visit, I requested that he remove gravy from the breaded and fried steak, he would not. We asked that he not add truffle oil to the greasy french fries, he would not. The list goes on. If you have dietary restrictions or want to try and make modifications to cut down on the amount of calories in each of his dishes...don't go here. Every main course is either fried, covered in high fat sauces, etc. The only dish he offers that is moderately healthy is the clams. Just giving a "heads-up" to those who like eating well while not being sickened by high fat foods.

I don't know if it was just a name change or actual management change, but this place has turned around for the better. The food is delicious and well portioned for the price. This is our 2nd time here and we will continue to go as long as the good service is offered.

The appetizers were great (Pillows, Brussel Sprouts, and Mac&cheese). I ordered the hamburger medium done and it came very pink with a bit of rawness in the middle which deterred me from eating much of it. I should have returned to cook longer, but there was only one server for the entire restaurant (who was wonderful) and it wasn’t important at that point plus appetizers and fries filled me up. We sat on patio which was very quiet and spacious for four plus a stroller. Will go back again and try other items from the menu as others had very delicious meals (chicken hash, tuna).

Dinner was wonderful. The corn appetizer was fresh with the corn cooked to perfection and the carmelized onions providing a savory sweetness. The chicken hash is the most elegant comfort food in SLC! Can't say enough about the amazing and courteous service provided by Nathan. Wildwood is truly a neighborhood dining oasis.
