The staff was very helpful and friendly. They made you feel at home. The food was amazing! Lovely seafood and meat dishes expertly prepared and beautifully presented. There was plenty of variety and everything was fresh and tasted clean. Will definitely do this again.
What a wonderful place! The food was amazing, the ambiance was fantastic. It honestly made my Mother’s Day!
The service was marginal at best. Our waiter never said a word. The swordfish was overcooked and overthought. Swordfish should be served simply and cooked to perfection. It was just ok overall.
With a violinist playing softly in the background, the main dining room (not the dining area with the bar) makes this restaurant a perfectly romantic date night venue. The ambiance is classic and the food is excellent. A little pricey but romantic dates are worth it!
From the moment we walked in, we were treated so well. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and the staff did everything to make it a memorable night. Hanna and Zac at the bar were great. As we were a little early, we sat at the bar and had our oysters. Hanna provides many samples of wine to try before we found the one we really liked. We were not in any hurry so when the manager told us that they accidentally gave our table to someone else we didn’t really mind. They gave us a free round to make up for it. The service at the table provided by Victor was superb. The food was delicious and the dessert provided was spectacular. We could not finish our dinners. This was our first time to both Ft Lauderdale and Wild Sea but hopefully will not be our last.
My husband and I went for date night. We sat inside due to the weather and it worked out great. Service was wonderful. There was a young man playing the violin that was outstanding. Food was everything I expected. I had the grouper and my husband had the daily special. Highly recommend the red velvet beignets for dessert.
Great outdoor seating for people watching. Fresh fish. Sophisticated setting. Great staff and service.
The food was very good. There was a violinist there playing inside that was truly wonderful. He played non-classical music. We had the black bass (special) and shrimp banana curry. Both were inventive and enjoyable. Service was great and highly responsive.
Little more than a mediocre restaurant with bland dishes disguised as an upscale place to trap Las Olas tourists. You can do better.
Very good waiter...Jonathon. Attentive, professional and helpful with the menu.
Nice seating near the street. Good atmosphere. Food above average.
Delicious focaccia, tuna , kale Caesar, swordfish and chocolate sphere dessert. The red snapper special lacked flavor and needed a sauce. Sat outside. Lovely server. Definitely recommend
Great place. Great food. Great service.
But a little to cold inside AC to strong.
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.
Worth a visit..Food was very good. Service was was excellent. I would recommend it
Great Food, Service, Live Music, Expensive but worth it!
The food was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the violinist . We'll definitely be back.
Very nice location and outdoor street seating was great on a beautiful evening. Excellent fresh west coast oysters and highly recommend the monkfish dish... very good presentation and complement to fish. We will be back!
Tami was a wonderful and informative server. Brandon was an awesome host and also helped with some great recommendations. Food was great! Definitely will be back!
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.
Tuna and swordfish Bolognese with squid ink pasta...wow...worth the visit for this dish
The waitress was so informative. She made the birthday special w dessert. The food was so delicious
It was pretty good but some of the dishes were very salty and the service took a while but they were friendly. It was a very nice atmosphere and the gelato was very good
one of the very rare restaurant where you can hold a conversation at a normal tone. Most appreciated
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.
Great place, service and food. Definitely recommend and will go back
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.
I have been to Wild Sea many times. Let’s just say tonight was an off night for them.
The chef was amazing and accommodating to our allergies. It's always a pleasure to dine when the server and the chef truly cares about the guests. Adestin was our server, he was amazing! And the food was FANATASTIC! ALSO $1.50 oysters for happy hour...you cant beat that! Will definitely be back!!
Great place and location. The raw bar is great! The happy hour price is pretty decent.
A little cold inside (AC) and courses were rushed. Entree came while starters were still being eaten but food was excellent and live music provided nice ambience without being invasive.
Being seated outside next to a cigar smoking store was a negative. Our server and the food was excellent however
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.
Service was sub standard
Appetizers served without plates
Entrees served without flatware
Empty water bottles left on table
Food was great
Very slow service, very noisy .
Average food, not a good place for a romantic dinner
