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.

The food was fresh and very good! While the service was good, it was pretty slow to get our order taken and the food took quite a bit longer than it should have for what we ordered. Again, very good food though!

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!

Best place for a meal before watching a movie next door; our reservation was late enough to take advantage of one of the best "happy hour" menus! The hostesses are always very friendly and accommodating; our server "Miles" was outstanding!

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.

Four diners... Two grilled salmon meals, perfect.... One mahi mahi dinner... that was awesome too. However, I had the smoked salmon salad and it was NOT good. Dry. Awful. I’ll never order that again. I was so disappointed.

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.

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.
