The food and service were great. I was surprised to get a $14 charge for water. Restaurants at this level DO NOT charge for water. Other than that, the dinner was excellent.

We LOVED this place. Every detail on point. From the salads to the main courses, every ingredient top quality and preparation perfect. The oysters were fantastic, fresh and delicious. Our server was absolutely wonderful, she was extremely friendly, attentive and knew her stuff. We will be back.

Excellent dinner at Wild Sea. We were staying at the Riverside Hotel and enjoyed the seafood that we ordered for dinner. The Shrimp Curry and Stripped Bass were outstanding. The service was fine and our dessert, a White Chocolate Sphere that melted before our eyes, capped a great meal.

Went for Valentine's Day and had a pleasant experience. Offered a choice between their current menu and a special Valentine's Day prefixed menu...both good options.
Although the lighting could have been slightly dimmer, for a more romantic ambiance, the restaurant is clean, tables were set with a complimentary rose, and the service was excellent.
With a name like "Wild Oyster" we had to try the oysters...both raw and cooked.
The raw oysters were fresh and briny; just what you might expect.
The real treat were the baked oysters...this was the hit of the evening!
For our entree we ordered the Monk fish and it was cooked perfectly.
All in all, this was a very good experience!

Food was excellent. Service was extra slow. Not our servers fault. We did have a large party, but management did not seem to care things were slow. The bartender stood with his arms crossed, while our party of 14 sat without drinks for 35 mins. When splitting bill at the end, it took over an hour. Again, we did throw a large party on them quickly, but there was hardly anyone else in the restaurant

We had a great server, Julio and he extended the happy hour prices for us and was very attentive. We loved our food (except the grouper was bland) the heirloom tomato salad, tuna and snapper and the wine list. I had a floral cosmo I liked very much. Would definitely return.

Couldn’t tell from the map that it was IN the Riverside Hotel! When the Lyft driver dropped us at the back entrance to The Riverside, we were confused. (His English wasn’t up to explaining we had arrived THERE.)
When we walked through the hotel and out onto the sidewalk, voila!
The food was excellent. I had Pecan Crusted Grouper, and my friend had the Monkfish. We forgot to order oysters! We’ll have to go back.

We had a great dinner here on a Thursday evening. The food was delicious, Service was very good, however we were there late (one of the last tables) and service was less attentive than when we first got there, but most likely our waiter was trying to get through end of the night duties. Overall everything was great and we plan to come back!

My husband and I escaped New York in January for a long weekend in Fort Lauderdale. We decided to try Wild Sea Oyster Bag and Grill because of the menu. This was probably one of the most delightful dining experiences of our lives. Our waitress was nice and perfectly efficient. They had a great wine list, including the wines by the glass. I had a Sancerre which was delicious. The food was out of this world from the first bite to the last. My husband had the tuna and I had the swordfish. It was so incredible.

To make the experience event my perfect, they had a violinist that would not have been out of place at the Blue Note in NYC, he was that good. This restaurant is on my must go to list for the next time I am Fort Lauderdale.

Didn’t honor reservation made earlier and that was on their books. Waited over an hour, After repeatedly asking when we would be seated, we left after an hour and 30 minutes. I am assuming that this restaurant discriminates against certain people eating there.

Good food, very poor service 🤔
Took my family for a nice dinner on the 31st
The place was not full, yet people were in line waiting to be seated. Very poor coordination. Only one waiter in my area trying to handle 20 tables, NOT GOOD.
The food was good.

Great dinner. Sharon, our Server was very good and the food perfect

Try the Baked Oysters and the New England Clams Casino. I had the Crusted Grouper and it was a wonderful blend of flavors served over rice.

Paula has the crusted Sea Bass .... crushes with Panko soaked in Squid Ink - delicious.

For dessert you HAVE to have the Key Lime Cookie; it not anything you’d ever imagine and it too, was fantastic

We decided to come here for NYE as we came last year. This year was not as good. We arrived after booking on OpenTable and they had no record of our reservation, then tried to sit us in the bar at a high top. We declined, the host was a little rude about it and they finally sat us at a table. The server was the pits, we ordered bottled water and she refilled our sparkling water glasses with tap water. The lobster was overly dried out and no manager or anyone came to apologize for it. Next year we will go someplace else.

The service was just terrible! The advertised a $19 buffet but tried to charge me $49. At first the waiter insisted that the price was correct. The drinks too forever to arrive- I had to ask 3 people before a waiter finally arrived. Over priced and disappointing experience.

The food was okay, no more no less. The service was stressful, the waitress cleaned off the table before everyone finished eating. To illustrate the stress: we ate a $350 three course dinner in one hour, which is surreal considering it was our Christmas Eve dinner at a "nice" restaurant. Also, the ingredients of the meal didn't correspond with the menu and the food (grilled lobster) went cold while waiting for what”s missing...

If you're looking for lobster try another restaurant. The 1 1/2 lb lobster risotto amounted to about 9 oz's or less. The tail had the texture of bubble gum. A two shrimp cocktail (at $5 per shrimp) was returned after one bite of its mushy consistency. At least it was deducted from the bill. The beef filet was good. The service was good. The price was out of sight. Will not be going back. If all you want is a cocktail the price and the drinks are acceptable at happy hour.

Service was very uneven. No hostess to greet us. We were told to pick a table & be seated without being notified that our guest were already here at bar. Waited 15 minutes for rest of party eventually calling them to find out they were in next room.It was ridiculous.
Restaurant not busy but service was slow. Waiter seemed in experienced & tentative. Should have been more informative as to sides needed to complete platter.
It was a very disappointing evening at a restaurant we had enjoyed many times before.
