If you’re craving fresh oysters this is definitely the place to go! My date and I shared the smoked fish dip as an appetizer which was so flavorful, and then had a dozen mixed east coast and west coast oysters. For dessert we had the red velvet beignets that were absolutely phenomenal. Krystle was our server and she was very nice and knowledgeable. We will definitely be returning!

Great ambiance and very good food. Quirky service, apparently untrained, keeps it from being special.

My mother, sister, and I went to Wild Sea Oyster Bar on April 7, 2019 to celebrate my birthday. The experience was wonderful! The ambiance was quiet and elegant; the staff - from the maître d' to our server - were welcoming, kind, and gracious; our server Tammy was particularly helpful and delightful; and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the baked oysters appetizer and the yellow sea bass entrée, with fried rice and quinoa, and loved every bite. My mother had the same, and found it delicious. My sister had the salmon entrée and crab cakes, and she enjoyed every bite. It's a great place to go for a delicious dinner and a lovely evening!

I was so disappointed with this place. I ordered the tuna tacos and they tasted horrible, like the tuna was bad or something. I couldn’t eat them. Instead I had some drinks and left.

Really was a great restaurant. From the Happy Hour drinks and oysters on the half shell to the fish dinners and sides, food was delicious. Great service, live music (soft guitar player) added to our special birthday night. Highly recommend for fresh and tasty seafood.

We chose this place based on reviews and it’s very good. Not as amazing as I had anticipated but I had high hopes. The service started off a bit rough but then rebounded during the dinner. The crab cake is wonderful and you MUST MUST MUST try the beignets for dessert! We also had the lobster and it was good although I think I would have preferred it to be cracked and shelled. The tuna hot stone was very fun! It was tasty although I’m not sure I’d do it again. Fun experience to try once. Wine selection was good and I thought pricing was very fair. Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere but I just felt it was lacking a full five stars. Overall a good experience and actually I felt as though it was very fairly priced.

This is a beautiful restaurant that is great for special occasions. It is one of 4 restaurants at the Riverside Hotel but is accessible street side on Las Olas Boulevard. Our waiter was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu offerings. A fun appetizer is the ahi tuna presented with a hot stone so that you can sear your own tuna, served with wonton chips and a spicy aioli. I enjoyed some east coast oysters and the crab cake. The stone-ground grits served with the monkfish entrée were amazing! I would definitely dine here again the next time I am in Fort Lauderdale.

My wife and I spent our Saturday Evening Date Night at Wild Sea Saturday, March 23. This was our 2nd visit. The food is very good however if you are a meat eater, the menu is extremely limited. The sea foods are extremely well prepared and seemingly very fresh.
Wild Sea has a classy atmosphere especially if you dine in the room without the bar. You must ask for this room when you make your reservation or you may end up barside or outside. Both times we ate here there was an electric violin player performing. He was terrific but he ends his gig at 9:30 for some strange reason. My suggestion...go earlier than usual to dine and enjoy the violinist.

We sat outside on a nice evening and enjoyed a delicious meal of salmon sashimi appetizers followed by corvina (perfectly prepared crispy on the outside and tender/moist on the inside) and tuna (again, perfectly prepared and so fresh). They have a great wine selection by the glass as well. Our waitress was excellent, making good suggestions for us. We'll be definitely be back.

Super disappointed with this place. Service was the worst I’ve experienced, food came out cold. Started of nicely, but as soon as the manager left to “make the rounds at the other restaurants”, it went steep downhill from there. The kale salad we ordered to share after our appetizers came, when I was still working on my appetizer. No extra bowl for the mussel shells was provided. Our waiter - as well as the others - disappeared for long periods in the kitchen area, chatted at the bar or just ignored customers. Mind you, it was mostly empty that night! We had to ask three times for the waters to be refilled, it never happened still. My husbands main course came out cold, mine was luke warm - we would have liked to say something, but again - no one in sight forever. We gave up and just ate, as there was no point. Then our waiter brought out the glass of wine my husband ordered for the main course which by that time he had finished - and brought one for me which I didn’t order. When I asked why, he said he won’t bill it then, it would be as a gesture for our anniversary we were celebrating?! I was confused why one would bring wine that wasn’t asked for and then make it an “anniversary gesture”? I’m used to being offered a dessert, which we actually would have ordered, but we never got the chance. When I asked if the waters could finally be filled up as we had asked for with no luck several times now, he was getting pouty like a scolded kid and just brought us the check - we didn’t ask for at that time. We had no chance to even look at the dessert menu at all - forget being able to order it, as he was completely ignoring us now. What an awful experience and a ruined anniversary dinner. I hope the host Brandon at least gave our complaints to the manager who was still “ making the rounds”. I really would have liked to speak to him about our experience. Surely, we won’t return and I can not recommend this restaurant - the food wasn’t that outstanding to begin with.

Delicious dinner with friends. Hot stone tuna app is unique and excellent. All fish entrees were excellent. Fresh and tasty. Dessert of Red Velvet beignets - fabulous. Ambience is warm and charming with a touch of seaside. Service unfortunately doesnt match the level of food or quality of restaurant. Menus never taken away, quite a wait between apps and entrees; server pleasant, but felt more like a bar server than fine dining. We all live in FL and have to deal with lackluster dining service. The food and ambience is excellent, however.

Had dinner at Wild Sea while on a short vacation to Fort Lauderdale. Beautiful restaurant and food was good. What made our evening was our server, Kristen. For whatever reason, we were being very indecisive and Kristen was very helpful and accommodating throughout the meal. She was most pleasant without being obtrusive and made our evening out very enjoyable.
