Good food but not a huge variety of fish to chose from. Everything was prepared well.

I travel to the Seattle, Renton & Tukwila area at least twice a year for business. Since discovering this restaurant in 2018, I have made it a point to dine here for lunch. I have yet to be disappointed. The food is really good, the service has been great and the prices are fair. At some point I will have to dine for dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant for an individual and/or group.

We will return to WildFin. Our food was delicious, our service was perfect, and we were seated in a less noisy area (in a booth), but it was still a little noisy. But no problem because we were just visiting and enjoying the birthday celebratory lunch. No quiet needed for deep conversations.

Had the Pacific Cod fish & chips. It was HUGE! Could only get through half of it. Very good! Dinner salads were large also. Great service and food!

Too expensive for the portions of food. Fish & chips cost $24.99!!! And there’s only one fish!

We made reservations for brunch at 10:00. We were seated promptly, but other guests coming in were being turned away because they didn't have enough servers on staff. I found this interesting Since the manager had just told us that the new WildFin restaurant did three times the business as her store. Well, this might be part of that problem. The food had to be sent back because it was too salty. The manager agreed. They could not fix the same dish again with the problem being resolved so we were asked to pick something else from the menu. Frankly, we really weren't that hungry after sending our food back. I will say we frequent the WildFin in Vancouver Washington and it is lovely.

Great food and stellar service. The fish tacos were delicious, next time I will only get 2, they are bigger than I thought. My husband ordered the flat iron steak which was cooked perfectly. We'll be back

The salads were good. The “All in” fish and chips were terrible. It came out soggy soaked with oil. The fries and fish tasted as if they were cooked in very old oil. Very disappointing.

This was our first time at Wild Fin. We were very pleased with the quality of the food, the portion sizes and the reasonable wine list. Service was appropriate for our table including no pressure as we stayed talking after the meal with friends who we only see a few times a year. All in all a very good evening and we would recommend Wild Fin to others.

We had a reservation at 730 and got there 15 minutes early. It was not busy but they said our party of 3 could not be seated until our reservation time. Once seated we waited and waited for water. Then we tried to order sliders but were told they were out of them - how do you run out of small burgers? We waited over 40 minutes for our food and it was not worth the wait. We were excited to dine here and disappointed after we did.

We have dined here twice now. Great location and very nice ambiance! Staff is super friendly...our waitress was exceedingly friendly, but a little too loud and excited for us! Now, the downside...food was just ok. Portions were small for the price. No bread with meals, salads are extra, etc. Probably wont be back, sadly.

I'm a huge fan of Wildfin, both in Renton and Issaquah. There is always an extensive choice of menu options from starters to desserts. Lots of favorites including delicious salads, soups, entrees and a daily special. While they tend to be on the pricey side, lunch combos are reasonable with many choices. Our server, Samantha, was exceptionally attentive, friendly and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor! I deducted one star because I'm super salt sensitive and much of the food was over-seasoned for my taste. Ambience and décor is wonderful and you gotta love free parking!

The ambience, service and food was very good. While I liked my dish, shrimp and scallop scampi, the parmesan sole and mushroom risotto was perfection. Looking forward to returning soon. To have a meal in a comfortable relaxing setting was perfect after a busy day at work.

The hostesses was a bit short with us, for we decided not to eat in the bar area and wished to be seated instead. She asked how long we plan on staying for she had the table reserved for 6:45pm and it was 4:30pm. Also when we walked in at 4:15 for our 4:30 reservation she said we were late it was for 4pm, but I had the open table email that confirmed I was correct.
The server was awesome, polite and very attentive to our needs (5 people), we visit from CA and have been here numerous times for the great food ,prices and happy hour. Favorite place in The Landing, Renton.

Perfect Friday date night. Happy hour after 9p saves big, the calamari app is to die for, and the service was the best I’ve had in a long time. They are also very knowledgeable about allergies which was our reason for going. I’ve been here for brunch before and it was phenomenal. 5 stars.

Exceptionally friendly staff. Took Dad there for Father's Day brunch and several staff members told him happy father's day and have him a little gift. Blood Mary bar is awesome with different vodkas, mixers, and "toppings". Many menu options for brunch but I really enjoy the Eggs Benedict!

The place is fancy, large and clean. The service was great, and accommodated our special requests. I left a generous tip. But the food, oh my god. Worst that I can remember I had in a restaurant, ever. It takes real talent to make fresh salmon inedible, but they managed. This is what chewing Crocks must taste like. Warm salad drenched in mayo and honey mustard didn't help. Soaking wet burger. Steak covered in crushed pepper to the point there's no other taste left. So sad...

I took my (adult) son and daughter here for my son's birthday. We had a reservation for Friday evening, but it was pretty empty in there. We all had something different. I had a hard time finding something that was completely appealing to me, but I ordered the closest thing and asked that they go easy on the spicy sauce that was supposed to be grilled into it. I received poached fish with spicy sauce on the side (which did not go with the poached fish). On top of that, the dish was extremely salty. I like salt, but it covered every other potential flavor leaving only salt. I did not wish to order a new plate as my kids eat more quickly than I and the wait would be too long. I did, however, leave most of it uneaten and told our waiter about the problems. I was disappointed to receive the bill and find that they did not comp me one dime. My kids really enjoyed their dishes. The wait staff was pleasant and responsive... I really wished I had been comped at least part of my inedible meal. I did not want to make a fuss or a scene on my kid's birthday, so I remain dissatisfied with this point, esp. considering that the food was much more expensive than I had expected from the website and some reviews.

Our server was excellent, made recommendations for us and we enjoyed him and our food was fabulous. Seems prices have gone up a bit at WildFin but still excellent food, great service, and good atmosphere. Awhile back it seemed service was not the best, so happy to have a great experience there and a great server, who paid attention the whole time to food, water, drinks, and quality.

I was under the impression that this was a high end restaurant since the prices were so high. In my onion it's just another red Robin. The food was ok, once again the price should reflect how the food was, but in this case it was way over priced. It took us over an hour from the time we placed our orders to the time we recieved our food and they weren't that busy either. I doubt I'll be going back there again.

My brother and I took our mom there for brunch on Mother's Day. We had a reservation and were seated right away even though there were several groups waiting for tables. The booth was large and comfortable, and the service was excellent. We each had one of their fish tacos as an appetizer and I had the breakfast tacos and my mom and brother both had the fish and chips. My mom is extremely picky about her fish and chips (and she hates panko breading) and was extremely pleased with her food. The portions were generous (I couldn't quite finish mine) and everything tasted great.

Took the family for Mother's Day. As usual, the food was excellent. It took awhile to get our food but it was worth the wait on a holiday weekend. WildFin is always my go to for yummy food and a great Happy Hour.

Wild Fin has been our go to restaurant for Mother’s Day for at least the last five years. They have a great brunch menu, as well as a Bloody Mary bar with all the fixings to enhance your drink. The restaurant has complimentary scones for the table, as well as a little gift for the Moms on the way out. We also dine there quite a few times a year and enjoy excellent service every time.

Very nice place. Not sure if I’d go through the trouble of making a reservation during lunch. They don’t seem to be busy during that time and they don’t ask about it or record it when you do show up. They do offer items that may not be on the brunch menu with if you ask which is great. Overall other than opentable harassing me about being a no show when I was there haha it’s was awesome. Definitely make sure to take advantage of open table during busy times though.
