If you are in NO rush the food is well worth the wait. However it seems as though the wait staff and kitchen are disconnected in providing timely or seamless service. Beautiful views if you’ve got the time. Our 3pm reservation turned into a 2-hr luner (lunch/dinner).

Food is always excellent. Views can’t be beat. Service could be enhanced. Everyone is friendly, but don’t necessarily go above and beyond to make our experience great. Ask if there’s a special event, bday, anniversary, etc.

Had a lunch reservation, the hostess didn't ask if we wanted to sit outside, but did ask the person that came in after us. We were led to an inside table and had to ask if we could sit outside. The hostesses are not friendly or nice. They are always like this. We love the food and restaurant, but the food was not great this time. Had the fish and chips. To greasy and the fish was cut so thin that is was over cooked. We have always been offered deviled eggs while we wait for our food. None was offered this time. Over all, it was the worse experience and food that we have had. Hopefully it won't be like this again.

The food is always fresh to table and perfectly prepared. We had the opportunity to enjoy the brunch/lunch menu this visit -- copper river sockeye was really good along with the fish tacos and eggs Benedict. The blueberry scones are the best we've had. So much more was ordered and enjoyed -- everything delicious. One critical note was that the seafood fettuccine was overly spicy (as in heat) than the usual sublime flavor that we know it for -- someone was a little generous with the red pepper flakes.
Kudos to our server Kim, who was excellent in making our family feel at home and well cared for. Very nice of the manager to let us take some of the wonderful blueberry scones to go! This is a great restuarant for any and all occasions where quality dining is important. Thanks WildFin!

It apparently was a busier than expected night for a Wednesday. We didn't mind so much, we had a friendly hostess and server. We tried something new the Wicked Seafood App... it came, all one brown tone color, (not appealing), and the flavor was anything but wicked. I don't know if it was because it was busy, but it was wicked bad. Our server ordered us another app, (the clams is always a winner), and kindly took it off our bill. I would take the Wicked Seafood App off the menu, your menu is only as good as it's worst item. Thank you for your time.

This is the first time for my husband. I've dined at WildFin before. Our food was great. I wasn't sure which wine to order so the wait person provided me a couple samples. How nice. The service was excellent. Just enough attention, but not too much. We'll be back.

First of all they were out of a few seafood options. And then they forgot to add my scallops to my prawns and scallop scampi. After letting them know the cook took a good 20 min just to fry up some plain scallops that had no taste whatsoever. If the scallops would have come in the sauce with the prawns and it would have been a great meal. But by the time I got those nasty scallops my food was cold and I didn’t enjoy it at all. My husband got the seafood fettuccine and the noodles where all clumped together and undercooked. Overall bad experience.

I've eaten at Wild Fin many times. Including other locations. This visit the service was incredibly slow. The Calamari was excellent! My aunt was enjoying her 81st bday and what she wanted wasn't on the menu and they made it for her which was wonderful. My salad though, horrible. That was a real surprise for me.

In general, the meal was good. We were a bit disappointed that they had run out of the Pinot Grigio tap wine and didn't have anything similar to offer. They had also run out of the rhubarb sauce that was supposed to top the rhubarb crisp. Other than that, the service was good and the food tasty.

The Staff are great and always willing to serve in whatever way we need. We appreciate them.
If you are in a hurry it's not the place to be. Service is a little slower which can be a positive or a negative, depending on your time for the day. We try to relax and forget about how long it takes to get our food.
We love the fact that so much of the food is locally grown, and organic when possible. That's important to us.
Thank you for a great place to spend some fun time...
P.S. We have bought gift cards for friends and family so they can get acquainted with your restaurant.

While the restaurant decor, views, and service are great I’ve never been impressed or ever really enjoyed the food at wild fin. The food is always lacking in flavor or quality. I think this restaurant relies on their location and view. Also, the blonde hostess that was working on mother’s day this year was absolutely rude. Our server was so kind and attentive so I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. Their issaquah location is the same, good service but poor quality food. We chose the restaurant for mother’s day because it’s family friendly and near the point Ruston park.

We should have looked st the menu beforehand, but with American Grill in the name we figured there would be more non-fish options. The food we ordered was good, it took over an hour after we arrived to get. The tables that ordered at the same time received their food before us. We were not impressed and will not be returning.

We love this place! The food was wonderful, as was the wine. It was a beautiful, sunny day so this night was busy and super energetic. It was awesome! I love the high energy and view from this place. I think the servers were super busy, and the kitchen was backed up, but we didn’t mind! Still had a great experience.

We ordered the fish special of the night, which was a chili-lime halibut with zucchini spirals - a truly tasty low-carb option. The bar seemed a little flustered with how to make my drink without simple syrup, but it turned out delicious. Wild Fin is becoming one of the better restaurants in town for low-carb dining.

We have been to Wildfin before many times and have had great experiences. This time however it took over an hour to bring our food (eggs and tacos- nothing that should take that long) and then it was cold. We were never offered drink refills or anything while we waited, not even a check in to let us know what was going on. Then after we finally got our food, I had to ask for the scone that came with my brunch dish... it wasn’t our favorite experience here and it was disappointing. I should add that our party included a 7 month old baby and a 2 year old so typically restaurants move pretty fast to move us out lol!

I was eager to take guests for a special birthday celebration. Told them in advance. Yes, they did have the window table for us. Beyond that, everything was downhill. First of all, the parking is outrageous. Guests have to enter their license plate number into a computer to avoid a $60 fine. They give you two hours, which is certainly needed. We ordered, and it took an hour to get our food...and then only after I flagged down a waitress to complain. She said she was helping the other servers...really? It wasn’t even crowded.

And the cuisine wasn’t worth the wait. Eggs Benedict were mediocre, frittata was over cooked, salad was average, and the halibut with chili sauce special was tasteless. Had to add Tabasco and salt. Scones arrived half-way through brunch. Waitress said they were just out of the oven. It’s weekend brunch, for goodness sake, keep up!

There was no mention of our birthday celebration, nothing. Unusual for a high-end restaurant. Keep going down the street to The Lobster Shop. They are amazing.
