I've been to Wildfin a few times for brunch. The blueberry scones that come with breakfast are probably the best scones I've ever had and they are complimentary! The food is always good and I love the view.

My family and I had a fantastic time at WildFin! The food was delicious and each of us had an incredible dessert. I will say the booth we sat in was only divided by a plank of wood so we could hear every word of the couple's conversation next to us, which wouldn't have been too awkward if they weren't fighting. Overall we had a fantastic time with some wonderful food and just angled ourselves towards the entrance of the booth.

The three tiered seafood appetizer was tasty and presented well. My harvest salad was lacking and plain. I left over half of it on my plate. Service just ok. I should’ve taken my two birthday guests to Dukes where things are consistent and overall excellent quality and service.
I prefer the issaquah location on Gilman much better.

The crab stuffed cod was very good. Their seafood chowder has to be my favorite of any place, hands down. The bananas foster bread pudding was heavenly. Can't wait to go back.

All the staff are friendly and helpful... our server Stephanie was the best. We ordered 6 items off their Tacoma Restaurant Week menu -- all of it was delicious and a bargain for the $30 three course meal; with portions very filling.
Don't miss this place for the second week of this wonderful gastronomic event!

Everything was nice the online menu doesn't match the actual menu. I ordered the Prawn Mac & Cheese it had to much bread curmbs for my taste, but good. Spouse got Flat Iron Steak with fries and loved his meal. We had an awesome view of the water. We had a wonderful time and recommend everyone to try it out.

Made a reservation for lunch a week in advance. Requested a nice table with a view as it was a special occasion. We had arrived about 15 minutes late for our reservation due to construction and road closures. I had called to let them know and apologize. My only option was to leave a voice mail. When we arrived at the restaurant and I asked if they had received my message? They were not interested and said they don't have anything to do with the phones. When our party was seated we were given a table farthest from the windows and right on the walkway for guests. Not what I had requested. When I spoke with the host staff they were not concerned about my problem. Eventually we were seated at a different table but still not what had been requested a week earlier. While we enjoyed our meal and made the best of it I would not recommend WildFin American Grill in Tacoma for a special meal. The host staff had extremely poor customer service. So while the food was delicious the host staff left me with a bad taste.

It was our anniversary when we dine at the Wildfin. The hostess was very polite, friendly and professional. She made sure we had the view of the water for lovely sun set. Our waitress friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and what was in season. She has great recommendation of main course and super yummy desserts. Our waitress made our night very enjoyable and thoughtful.

My coworker picked WildFin and I made a reservation for 3 and asked for “view from Bar please”. Received a message from WildFin saying “looking forward to seeing you” and nothing else. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was packed and hostess said something like, “we do not reserve at the bar.” Then Our group went in the bar, waited there and were able to grab a couple of chairs. My point is that I should’ve have informed that reservation is only for the dinning area.
