This is my third meal at Wildfish. My thoughts were that Wildfish does not know whether it wants to be a sports bar with TV's or fine dining. After eating at Eddie V's a week before, I could see that the level of professional service from the front desk to the take away staff was not quite the same. My waiter was excellent though! No one at Wildfish for instance, swiped away crumbs on the table for example. The quality of food was the same but I think the TV's give Wildfish a bit more casual experience. I am not sure they want that. The restaurant is very energetic so a date is difficult. You have to shout to hear each other. I know Eddie V's is a sister to Wildfish, I will pick Eddie's for a date night. It is just more posh with almost the same menu.

Disappointed in the food. Only a notch above ordinary. Expected something more unique based on the ratings. The preparation and quality of ingredients seemed fine, but I did not find the flavors/textures to be particularly unique or tasty. Service was good, although the food came so quickly, I had hardly started my cocktail.

Great food and service. Atmosphere was energetic but not to loud to have a conversation. Lobster tacos appetizer was wonderful. Sword fish and fillet Oscar entrees were very good. Try a desert you won’t be disappointed.

We had a great meal 2 nights ago. We came back today, March 18th for a drink at the bar and found this restaurant went out of business. We don't understand why????

Great meal, however they tried to put us at an undesirable table, next to a bussing station. Why do they do that? We requested to be moved which seemed like an major change, with 8 better table locations. Our request was finally granted, the balance of the evening was good.

Our group of four enjoyed Wildfish. Very attractively decorated with good service. Most of our food was very good. The one exception was the swordfish which was overcooked. Normally when you have a thick piece of swordfish you are able to cook properly and maintain moistness internally. This ended up being a $45 dried out piece of swordfish with great dressing and sauce. I would go again but would specify to not overcook.

The food here is excellent. Very well-prepared seafood, beautiful salads and delicious desserts. Parmesan-crusted sole was great, as were my spouse's scallops. Huge salads with a few novel ingredients. Creme brulee was spoon-licking good. The restaurant is relatively quiet; the service professional. As with most Scottsdale restaurants, it's pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Wildfish is one of our "Go-To" restaurants when we have guests in town, or for Happy Hour, or for pretty much any occasion. The food is always good and the service excellent. This visit and our service from Nikko was the best that we have ever experienced here.

Outstanding jumbo lump crab cakes, crab and corn chowder, misoyaki black cod. However, Chilean sea bass Hong Kong style was most disappointing at $45, the most expensive fish offering: fish was fresh but very bland, needed to be steamed (and garnished) with lots of julienned fresh ginger, green onions, shiitake mushrooms and fresh cilantro, instead of being plated with just pickled ginger slices from the raw bar. Very expensive! especially when one dish fails completely.

Very expensive, nothing under $40 on menu. All steaks were 55 plus? I don’t mind spending, but this place is very average and casual and not worth 150 plus for 2? Been at hundreds of restaurants and while the food was very good, it wasn’t worth this kind of money. Felt like a glorified Friday’s.

My food was way too salty- the tomatoes, the potatoes and the steak. I have been to the restaurant before and ordered a strip steak that was absolutely wonderful. The steak I had this time was undercooked (rare, not medium rare) and just ok..not as tender and tasty as I expected. My husband’s swordfish was the only dish of the four we ordered that was exceptional. Since we were taken there as a “thank you “ dinner, I did not want to complain. Despite my disappointment with the food, the service was excellent.

Wonderful food, great service. All 4 meals were excellent (prawns, chilean sea bass, lobster, scallops). Our server knew we were heading to the Cavalia horse show after our meal, and he made sure we were on our way in plenty of time. We will definitely be back. Thank you Wildfish!

Excellent seafood restaurant. Fine selection of dishes with a few non-seafood options. Excellent wine list and service. While not cheap, the meal was worth the price. Was a bit tricky to find for a non-native. This is a good place for a quiet, quality seafood meal with a nice bottle of wine.

Celebrated a successful run of the Sprouts Phx/Mesa Marathon and went to the Wildfish for a celebration dinner and was not disappointed. The crab chowder, the sea bass and the bananas foster were all recommended by our waiter and each tasted amazing. I could not have been more pleased with this experience. My one drawback was the noise level of the restaurant. It was loud and we felt like we were shouting at one another at times to be heard. But regardless we had a great meal and would definitely return, again and again.
