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.

Extremely expensive. Way overpriced. I can get 100 times better food in Europe at a quarter of the price. Pretty embarrassing. Food was average. Nothing special. Got high ratings on TripAdvisor. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Even the people I don’t like.

We were only in Fort Lauderdale for the weekend. We looked online for a restaurant and we were super pleased with Wild Sea! Not only was the food delicious, it was fresh and creative in preparation.
We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood after dinner. Fun area!

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.

The food was excellent and we had a great table. We had specified a quiet area and it was. The biggest problem was our server. She was delightful when she was there. But she was pretty inattentive. As a result service was slow. I think she spent too much time chatting with everyone and it got in the way of efficient service. Good waiters are able to be friendly but not waste time.

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.

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.
