Food was amazing. Service was slow and lazy. Also, if you sit outside, it's next to a cigar store.

We had a special nite out and were somewhat disappointed. We came early but got a table in a pretty dark room so that it was difficult to read the menu. Then after some time there was live music that made it difficult to hear the waitress. And we chose the catch of the day which was greatly overpriced and was not exactly what we expected - where was the tuffle? The fish did not quite satisfy my taste buds unfortunately.

Our Valentine’s Day dinner with two other couples was outstanding! The decor was trendy and elegant. The service was fabulous. Our meals were terrific. They had a saxophone player MGP, that played a great set, and the volume was perfectly suited to the restaurant. All-in-all it was amazing, and we cannot wait to return.

Early dinner at Wild Sea Oyster Bar & Grille. Half priced drinks 5-7pm.
We shared the heirloom tomato salad, Ahi Tuna Tacos and Snapper. All were very good. Nice atmosphere, recently renovated. We would definitely go back.

The service was first rate. The scallop scampi was the best scallop dish I’ve ever had. My wife’s filet was tender and flavorful. The violin player was an extra treat. Be sure to go here when in Ft. Lauderdale

This was our first visit to a highly regarded restaurant in the Riverside Hotel. The atmosphere created by low lighting, properly spaced tables and hues and colors was quite nice. The cuisine was top notch and in my view, quite affordable for the venue and portion sizes. I was especially impressed by the monkfish and brussel sprouts. The wine by the glass options were decent, but I'd prefer to see a bit more selection options. As for service, there was some wait before our server appeared, and service overall was slow for food and beverages. We could do without the background music tracks, but the music was sufficiently low to allow for easy conversation. All in all, we had a nice evening at Wild Sea, and do not regret our decision to dine there. The complementary valet parking is a real plus, too.

Service was too slow. Waitress should have ask us if we parked in the valet parking. We were told later that we may have had a discount on parking if we had our receipt validated. Music was very good. Prices were OK for the area, etc.

Cauliflower rice was too salty. Swordfish was ok, not great. Creme Brûlée was different (with espresso flavoring) but really good.

Bread from start looked WAY better than it actually tasted.

Oysters were good, not great.

Service took way too long on the beginning and between order. Even ended up pouring our own bottle, which was placed on the other side of the table, after waiting at least 15 minutes for a refill. Food got cold.

May not return, sadly.

Overall, the food was delicious. Despite having a reservation and calling ahead to let them know we were on our way, they did not have a table available when we arrived. The hostess only offered tables by the bar, but the manager informed us that it should only be about a five minute wait for a table in the dining area. While it took longer, he kept us apprised of the status.

The restaurant seated a family including an infant and an unruly 5 year old in the center of the main dining room. Predictably the infant continued a scream fest and the 5 year old ran the circumference if the ding room over and over stopping only to punch his father. No instruction from parents or restaurant. We moved to another room, the bar. Won’t return.

this is a great spot with some really good food priced fairly. additionally there were a number of fine service staff including the host (amazing, hard working, very pleasant) a diligent and hard working busboy (who brought plates/water/bread to table), a well spoken young Manager who delivered our wine however the waiter needed more training. Polite, well spoken as he was, he was unprepared/inexperienced enough to handle the number of tables assigned.

As a SoFL native, I know pompano as perhaps my favorite fish to eat. The pompano at Wild Sea was prepared perfectly - better than I have ever had it prepared before. Amazing! Service from Tami was spot on, too!

This was our first time to Wild Sea but it certainly won’t be our last. We had the absolute best experience - from the service to the food. Such amazing cuisine !

One nice feature is that the restaurant offers 4oz and 8oz options for a lot of their entrees. This allowed us to enjoy an appetizer, entree and dessert for a complete experience.

We had the crab cake appetizer and it was amazing!! Really! We have some wonderful restaurants in New England with really great crab cakes and these rival just about any we have had.

I enjoyed the 4oz grouper entree which was so fresh and delicious. Hubby had the duck special over risotto. It was a larger serving than he expected but wow the flavors were crazy good. Key lime pie was wonderful with a meringue topping. Fabulous.

What put this evening over the top was the exceptional service. Taylor B took excellent care of us and she was simply amazing. She is friendly, offers helpful suggestions when asked, and was perfectly attentive. She was perfectly professional and checked on us all evening without being over attentive, which allowed us to enjoy our conversation.

Eat here! You will not be disappointed.

We made reservations at 9:45pm for a New Year’s Eve celebration. It took almost 10 minutes for the waiter to come and take our order. He asked us for appetizers first (no drinks) but failed to tell us of any of the daily specials.

Appetizers were delicious. I ordered the catch of the day only to be told 15 minutes later that it was sold out. The chef was able to substitute grouper in the special preparation but the fish was over cooked and dry.

Just after dinner we asked how long dessert would take. The waiter said 10 minutes. We ordered the beignets and asked for the check. After 20 minutes wait, I had to get up and ask the manager to prepare our desserts to go and again ask for the check.

I think the waiter was young and green - definitely needs more training.

East coast oysters delish, Monkfish delish, scallops fantastic, no to the golden tile fish special. It was horrible, had to be returned. The grouper was ok, not great. Salmon carpaccio was excellent. Drinks were pricey and the wait was long. There are so many good restaurants in the area not sure we would return but might for the oysters.

Booked a table in advance for NYE dinner with my husband. We got great service from our server Tami during the night. She was very attentive to our allergies and was also good at redommending her personal favourites. Nice and tranquil live music in the background and the restaurant itself is pretty quiet, even though it's a rather large place. It is connected to a hotel and once you got out in that lobby, it was kinda crazy. Could be because it was NYE though. Definately recommend this place if you like to enjoy fresh and healthy seafood and great wines!
