Just another all around good experience at Wilde. Love the menu selections and lots of beer to choose from. Really enjoyed the grilles Scottish salmon sandwich and a couple of creamy Guinness! Go now!

Great place, good food. The ambiance was unique with indoor outdoor and indoor with windows open seating. Food menu is good with 'Irish' food (but a mix from multiple cultures). We ordered brussel sprouts, fries, potatoes, vegetables, salad, drinks etc. They were all good. The waitress was also a friendly person. Only complaint was one of the drinks was not goood enough for my friend. So he turned it back. The place is real treat for the palate

This was only our second time of stopping by Wilde bar and was somewhat disappointed with the Wilde burger; I didn't really taste the glaze. The ambiance is the best thing about this place. We're hoping you bring back the special burger you had a few weeks ago, but are willing to try other items on the menu.

I’m a visitor from Los Angeles so this was my first visit. The food was excellent with generous portions. Service was great with a very personable server who offered suggestions on the menu items. Loved the ambience—lively without being too loud. Would go back again.

This was my second visit to Wilde Bar & Restaurant, and everything was even better than I remembered. We started with the Cheddar Artichoke Dip. If you like cheese, artichoke, and toast, this is the thing for you. I highly recommend it. The Ultimate Grilled Cheese with their tomato basil soup was delicious. And the star of the night was the Apple Crumble.
Everyone on staff was friendly, the service was great and our food came out in a timely manner. I have nothing to complain about! This is one of my favorite restaurants.

Food was absolutely delicious! Very accommodating of people who need gluten free options, though they do not have a dedicated fryer. Cocktails were very fun and unique. Will definitely be back!

First time visit to Wilde Bar - Sunday Brunch (party of 5). We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Both food and service were very good. I can definitely recommend this restaurant if you're in the area.

First time at Wilde and I will go back in a heartbeat. The menu was loaded with yummy choices that it was hard to choose.
I decided on the burrito rancheros which was huge with great ingredients and just the right amount of kick. My friends had eggs Benedict and a chicken sandwich. We all enjoyed our meals.
There are a handful of outside tables with umbrellas for shade. Made a reservation through open table and requested outdoor seating. Our request was met and we were seated promptly.
Can’t wait to go back!

The salmon and pot pie dishes are amazing but the shepherd's pie is a little heavy on the potatoes and the chopped salad had more ingredients and dressing than lettuce. The vibe is cool and the drinks are great!

We've made Wilde our "go-to" for pre theater the evenings we go to Timeline. We have never been disappointed. Overtime we've found some favorites, but always enjoy choosing from their menu that has quite a variety of choices. Some faves: onion soup, tomato soup, burgers, shepherd's pie, salads .....

I recently went to Wilde for brunch and it was great! The food was good, easy to get a table, the Wilde Mimosas are great. The service was not very good. We waited over 10 minutes for someone to come take our drink order. I had to grab someone. They continued to be slow, but the food and drinks mad up for it. I would definitely go back for brunch. I've also been for dinner and same experience. Good food, bad service.

Years ago a friend introduced me to Wilde, and I've made it a point to go as often as possible. I love their Scottish Salmon entree. This time around I had a the tomato/goat cheese/basil flatbread, which I also enjoyed. I've had other items as well. I'm particularly drawn to their appetizers and side items because, with the latter, I try to eat as healthy as possible. They serve comfort food, but not all of it is unhealthy. Plenty of vegetarian options. I always take people to this restaurant. I've yet to have anyone tell me that (s)he didn't enjoy the experience.
