We get there early and had oysters from the happy hour - they were great. My wife ordered the special which was a steak and it was awful - she asked for some salt - never a good sign and it never came. Finally she complained about the meal and they were very good about taking it off the bill but it was a pretty disappointing experience. We will probably not go back. The waitress was terrific and so was management but the food was just average at best.

Crusted chicken was served with a mushroom mix with a soy and ginger sauce which was very acid and salty I did not bare to eat more of the mushrooms after 2 bites.
When I mentioned it to the server it felt like my comment fell into a black hole !!!
The other person had snapper and she said it was good.
I have been there 3 times and it was great the first 2 but after this episode I am not going back! My meal was ordinary and nothing was done to remedy the situation !

The half portions were a great option for those who did not want s full dish and being able to mix halves allowed us to taste multiple selections.

Excellent service and great food. I was surprised it was not more crowded on a Friday at 7 PM… Though the hotel bar was plenty crowded. We had oysters and also the monkfish which was amazing. Great drinks and fair prices.

My wife and I were spending the weekend in Ft Lauderdale and had dinner for the first time. We were greeted warmly and served delicious Sangria with bread. The waiter staff explained the menu and the food was spectacular. Sitting outside near a big table so it was a bit noisy but overall a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend

Our dinner was fabulous and the impressive menu choices made it difficult to choose. It all looked so good, the three of us ordered four half size portion items and shared them. We loved that idea, suggested by our warm and knowledgeable server, Tammy.

It was exquisite fine dining!

My son ordered steak, medium well. Came back medium rare; sent it back, came back exactly the same but cold; sent back a third time, brought him a brand new steak more rare than the first; at this point I asked them to cook it well done to insure it would be cooked, third time a charm; did not charge us for steak, and took 20% off more from the bill; oysters were very good; halibut special was good but bland; overall, not the greatest dining experience! Nevertheless they were very accommodating and took responsibility for the mishaps! Would try them again, I think it was just a bad night!

I had the octopus as an appetizer and the monkfish with a zucchini crust as the main (half portion). The octopus was cooked very well but lacked acidity and salt. The monkfish was also very well cooked, juicy and flaky, but tasteless. The roasted zucchini and eggplant were the best part of the dish. I am not sure I would go back.

We came here for dinner on Friday night. We had reservations and sat inside. Our booth was near the bar and it wasn’t loud at all. The waiter was Ryan and he was fantastic. Took the time to answer all questions about the food and was very friendly.
We started with an appetizer and took advantage of the $1.50 oysters. We had 2 dozen. They were good.
For our meals we had Scallop Scampi, Monk Fish & Sword Fish.
The food was delicious and we cleaned our plates.
I would highly recommend.
Great location on Los Olas.

Great food options. Very different and really liked that they gave half portion options so we could order a few different things we’ve not had elsewhere before. Server was really sweet and attentive. However, if you’re looking for a more lively scene this wouldn’t be it. It’s very quiet and peaceful inside. Makes you forget your on the las olas strip.

Don’t waste your money! Food was horrible!
Beef was sour and we had to send it back. Oysters were funky. Fish was cooked poorly. Too peppery! The only thing decent was tuna tacos and the corn side dish.

This place is one of my favorites in the entire city. It offers upscale décor, good service really terrific food and even had someone serenading us with a saxophone. The topneck clams were outrageously fresh and so was the monk fish. Others really liked their baked oysters, house salad, filet and scallop pasta. Most entrees are offered in half portion as well. They also have a really nice wine list. (We even had a third bottle in the bar area after dinner!).

Wild Sea did not fail to impress. The new menu is approachable and diverse, offering full and half portions. My partner and I opted for a few apps and then a few half portions because we just couldn’t decide what to have. Save room for dessert because the bengeits are to die for!

Waited one and a half hours for the main course. Sat down at 7pm and still waiting at 8.30pm for the main course. I ordered halibut. Waitress told me an hour and a half after taking the order that they had run out of halibut. I ordered turbot which is normally white, meaty, delicious. I got thin pieces of fried fish. Disgusting.When it came it was luke warm. No atmosphere, no one seems to be in charge. A rudderless ship
Dreadful experience. Avoid.

Saw mixed reviews on sites regarding this restaurant. Almost didnt go. What a mistake that would have been. Top shelf happy hour with buck and a half fresh oysters. Great tasting and creative apps. Awesome bread. Good portions. Ate so much apps never made it to dinner. Ate at bar with great service from awesome bartender Hannah. Definitely recommend and would gladly return.
