It was a nice brunch but the kids menu options aren't brunch options, they seemed to be regular lunch items. Otherwise the service is excellent and the food is good.

My husband and I have been to wildfin before and had the best service as well as food. Unfortunately the most recent time we went the food was very dry or way too salty. We both got steak my steak was SO dry. The service was great though.

Restaurant named "WildFin" presumably is good with seafood. My first visit to this restaurant during the Seattle Restaurant week. The seafood chowder has few seafood bits (mainly potatoes and fish bits), very starchy tasting. The grilled salmon is salty and overcooked.....................Not going back.

Enjoyed a nice dinner before an evening of dancing. Food was good - especially the Mac & Cheese, but we did have to send food back as it was served cold. Ambiance... was ok. The cost - comparable to our happy hour evenings at Daniel's.... and that food and ambiance is far superior! Would we come again... yeah, probably - but we won't go out of our way to make it happen.

To expensive for a chain resturaunt. Oversalted, odd flavor combos. Too much sauce or too little, too rich or too plain. Just wasn't quite right.

My wife and I had a great time at your restaurant. Food and service was great. The wait time was a little long but did not bother me at all. Someone from the staff came out and said they were comping the whole meal cause of the wait time. That is world class customer service. Thanks again for the great food and service. Taylor made our visit well worth it. See ya again soon!!

We were really excited to visit this restaurant. We made reservations and were excited about the menu that was posted on the website. When we arrived, we were seated all the way at the back of the restaurant, next to the serving station. It took nearly 5 minutes for the waitress to speak to us. There were only 2 other tables (2-tops) that were seated at this time. We asked lots of questions and were disappointed that there weren't as many fish options as we had hoped. The salmon spread was much more bacon and not a whole lot of salmon flavor. The king salmon, I ordered was cooked to perfection, and quite a delight. The steamers were okay. Cocktails were great, but when asked about warm cocktails/aka a hot toddy - the waitress said there was none.
As the restaurant got busier, we were not really attended to by our waitress. She, in all fairness to her, was slammed. The restaurant got very noisy and we then had trouble hearing our waitress. She offered to close us out, before offering a dessert, which we had to ask for. The dessert, too, was delightful.
Given the price we paid, I would have hoped for better service and a better over all ambience.

I ordered the smoked salmon salad. Found a few bones in the salmon, which is not my favorite ...but it was just a few, so I enjoyed the rest of the meal. We had a fantastic waitress - knew when we needed something and when we needed to be left alone. Great afternoon

Server was great, but the main meal took over an hour. When the food arrived it was lukewarm. Not going to complain, when my wife and I were starving. Not the best way to celebrate our 41st Anniversary. Maybe we will try lunch instead.

My server was super nice! The order came out incorrectly but she was very apologetic, fixed it, and then the manager came over he also apologized. And then the food that we weren't going to be able to eat he boxed up and asked if he wanted to take it home so that it wouldn't go to waste. This is an excellent place for brunch!

We tried this restaurant because Costco had a screaming deal on gift cards for the place. So glad we did! The room was warm and cozy on a typical rainy Northwest night. Our entrees were delicious and the service was good without being tiresome (really, if I told you everything was fine three minutes ago, and three minutes before that, it’s probably still fine. Leave me alone.) The cocktail menu was interesting, it will be fun to try a few more of them. We’ll go back for sure!

Still a fan of Wild Fin in both the Renton and Issaquah locations, even with some changes. Prices are a bit higher, some fave items are no longer available, some previous items can no longer be shared but, hey, it's marketing and keeping up with the huge influx of new restaurants in the area to stay in business is understandable. Service has always been friendly, fast and attentive. Love the ambience and set-up of the place. Cozy and not too loud. Convenient free parking in the surrounding lots. Deducting one star because my favorite soup isn't very good anymore - French Onion. Used to be loaded with onions and a superb beef broth. Now, it's kind of gummy and way too salty, mostly bread. Sent it back and was promptly told it would be taken off the receipt. Salads were fresh. However, we used to be able to split a large salad and were told that is no longer an option. Have been here for brunch, lunch and dinner, plus a couple happy-hour functions. All good!

I am a returning customer and continued fan. I love the food. Service is usually pretty good. On this visit I noticed a decrease in portion size that was very disappointing. Having ordered the same thing before it was obvious the size was reduced. I suppose it’s bettet than increasing prices, but still a bit of a bummer. That said, I’ll be back!
