So loud we could hardly hear the waiter. Had to flag them down for items. The food was just ok and overpriced. Beautiful setting, but was disappointed.

Celebrating our kids return from Hong Kong. The waiter was attentive and had great recommendations from the wine to the food. Dinner was delicious.
The only drawback is the restaurant is a little noisy.
I do recommend this place and we are looking forward to coming here this summer.

Service was very slow! Kombucha was priced as $3.50 to $4.50 on menu but was $6.50 on bill. Oysters were the smallest I have ever seen! Manager brought out our food but did not return with items we asked for to go with our meal and server did not come around to see how food was until 15-20mins into meal. By then food was cold waiting for the items forgotten by Manager. Scampi was very spicy, doused in red pepper flakes! Took away from entire dish and upset my stomach. I have been in the restaurant business for years and this was atrocious service and food especially for the cost! Waste of $$!

I wish the separator for the center seating is a lot higher than what it is. I told the staff that it was my husband's birthday but they didn't do anything special so maybe they don't do anything for birthdays. Anyway, we still had a good experience.

Went for Sunday brunch. All 4 of us enjoyed our food. The service was ok, not great. Coffee refills and ice tea refills were promised, but not delivered. The only NEGATIVE was the noise. The high ceilings make it very loud and hard to carry on a conversation.

Had a wonderful time! The food was great. Had a couple of street tacos and a fondue appetizer which were delicious. For the entree I had the Alaskan snow crab stuffed roasted cod which was also really good. Service was attentive and we left very happy.

Great setting. Great wait staff. Went for lunch on a Monday. The verdict was - stick with the seafood. Seafood chowder was rich, savory the Wagyu beef tacos were very tender but lacked any notable beef flavor and were very bland overall. French dip sandwich was generous but not particularly noteworthy. The calamari appetizer was good however, it was made with strips of calamari. While these were nicely prepared, we did miss having crispy tentacles.

First visit. Knew it was popular so booked a 4:45 reservation which unfortunately put us in the middle of a shift change and slowed down service quite a bit. Food was better than expected and depending what you order can be a good value. Service was decent but seemed to be spread thin. Most surprising to me was the number of large parties with small children. Might try again and sit in the bar.

The food was excellent. I recommend the calamari....it was the BIGGEST pieces of calamari I’ve ever seen. And the jalapeño aioli was delicious. I had the halibut with the fresh preparation, and it was delicious.

My husband had the ono with a jasmine rice, which was also excellent.

Service was very attentive, but it was a little noisy in there. The server indicated sitting back by the kitchen is a little quieter.

All in all, would go back.

Food was really good, had the trout amazing. Service was outstanding. The place is really wide open, with connected tables in areas. We did not appreciate feeling the table vibrate every time the ‘other side’ made a movement. A little noisy for a Monday night. I swear they turned the AC on to encourage a quicker exit.

We enjoyed not only our food choices but the view/setting of WildFin is perfect, of course it helped that the weather was great the day we visited. Our server, Derina, was helpful and attentive. If you like/love fish, a "must try" is the parmesan sole. While we always enjoy exploring menus and ordering different meals, I would absolutely order this again. Delicious! Smoked salmon salad was another hit as was the chowder. Also tasty....the huckleberry collins.

It is a place for a group who want to have social conversations. It is too noisy to have any meaningful conversation or relax and take time with a meal. The food is very good with good presentation but the atmosphere interferes with being able to fully enjoy it.

Great seafood chowder but the “worlds greatest calamari “ was mushy and tasteless if you exclude the over spicing

Good service & ambiance and they had a good beer & wine offerings

We will go back and try some other dishes

Wife’s first visit to Portland area. Couldn’t resist the opportunity to experience the new James Beard nominated restaurant on Vancouver’s new & burgeoning waterfront.
Ambiance was awesome. Food menu choices and service were excellent.
