Enjoyed the food and atmosphere! Wait staff was great! Not cheap but worth it! I would dine here again!

We were there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and they didn’t disappoint. It’s the best Japanese food and worth the drive from Vernon Hills!!!

Outstanding service and sushi, we ordered several plates and our server presented it together for our table in a boat. Highly recommended.

The fish/sushi was fresh and very flavorful. We had the pork dumpling appetizer and the sushimi sampler appetizer. My husband had the Combo #2 and I had the OMG roll. Everything was very good. The only "near miss" was to much wasabi hidden underneath a large shrimp perched atop a mound of rice. My husbands eyes watered and it really cleared his sinuses. My husband likes wasabi but I don't as it is just way to strong for me. If I had eaten it I would have never recovered to enjoy the rest of the meal. I suggest you check under the fish to check for wasabi before eating some of the sushi. We live near downtown Arlington Heights but for some reason had never been to Wildfish before. We will definitely be back.

overly crowded to the point that you cant walk , your tripping over people, and the table are literally on top of each other, no space or comfort, I mean you are like eating with your next table and cant talk because its uncomfortable because youre soooooo close. food is very good, a little over priced

There was hard to find the parking. Not clear where to park the car. Price was very high $35 + tax for the buffet. We did not stay there for dinner, we left and went to the next door Noodles restaurant and had a good time and food there.

Great place for sushi. I’ve been there many times. Only improvement I would recommend is the bar. The drinks are average to below average unless you get their specials. However, I still love the place and I just need to be specific on my drinks.

Always a treat eating at Wildfish. Ownership and staff are very pleasant and the sushi menu (and specials) are always on target with great variety and flavor. If you’re in the area, it’s well worth the trip.

We tried many items on the menu and shared. The cocktails were great and everything we tried was delish. We had a tuna roll with a shrimp standing on guacamole that was memorable. Golden shrimp app was very good. Yellowtail tuna sashimi with jalapeño and ponzu citrus also very good.

Food is tasty, service is average and ambience is ok. I have eaten here several times and the staff is always very friendly. The food is good, nothing to write home about, but no complaints. I will eat here again and do recommend it. More of an everyday kind of place rather than a special occasion place.

As always we had a wonderful meal with great service and a genuinely appreciative staff. Had the Crazy Chicago will and I was not crazy about that one, but the bluefin sampler with Mango Ponzu was outstanding. So was the Crazy sexy dragon. Now if they would just bring back the Thai Crunch...

Service was awful and it was not that busy. My go to meal has melted cheese ok the sushi and it seemed like it was made and sat hours ago & not warm.

The tuna app was good

Restaurant was understaffed for a holiday Monday. Only had two waiteresses and one was serving as bartender as well. Plus a "manager" that stood around and talked on the cell phone and didn't help the staff when they were slammed. Had to wait a long time for service, the only reason we got served was because we were directly across from the service/register station and we could flag the waitress down. They were very frugal with the wasabi and had to ask twice for extra, by the time we received the wasabi we were just about done with all our food. Had to wait 30 minutes for two rolls and were almost late for our movie. Bluefish in Park Ridge is much better, service and food.

Wildfish is tucked away in downtown Arlington Heights near the movie theater. They have been a favorite for us for a long time and we need to go there more often! It may be crazy outside, but once you step over the threshold into Wildfish you'll feel yourself relax in the calm interior. This time - maybe for the first time - neither of us had sushi. My husband had a bento box and I had sesame crusted seared tuna - both were excellent. Service was, as always, wonderful.

The food was very good and fresh tasting, just a little pricey for sushi. The restaurant is small but nicely decorated with a relaxing anbience. Tables are a little close together so it will be tight if the restaurant is busy.

The bento box was well prepared and proportioned. It was a complete meal and included all of our favorite foods. The service was great and they allowed substitutions on the sushi portion of the box. Can't wait to go back.
