Awesome restaurant!
It was busy but my husband and I were still able to hear each other very well... Booth seating was great!
Our server LEO was the BEST! He was always smiling and courteous, and he really knew the menu and the dishes to recommend.
Food was delicious and the dessert was to die for!!! Banana foster I think is what it was called.
I highly recommend this place!

We were a group of 13 for a business dinner with many different tastes -- from vegan to steak to fish. Everyone found something delicious. We started with the seafood tower which was a beautiful crowd pleaser. Folks raved about the sourdough bread. The nightly special desserts were well received but the ultimate faves were the cocktails. Folks were downing Hope Diamond martinis like koolaid!

A last-minute opportunity to go out to eat with friends landed us at Wildfish and we’re glad we went. The food was prepared nicely and the ambience was conducive to worthwhile conversation. Our server was at his best when he “went off script” and allowed his personality to shine through.

We always get the parmesan crusted sole and crab cakes. Great as usual. Can't go wrong with the crab and corn chowder or the wedge salad. Not cheap but worth it for an occasional "nice" dinner.

We only get here about once a year but we were so relieved and pleased to find that the food quality remains just outstanding. I had tuna tempura; my husband had scallops; our friends both had sole. All the dishes were cooked to perfection and though the portions were lavish we ate every bite. The service was impeccable. Great place to go before theatre or just for a night out.
