We always enjoy our meal and time at Wildflower. Eating at the bar, however, is slow. The bartender is by herself/himself and needs more help to take care of all the drink orders and the meal orders of those few sitting at the bar. Wildflower could use a larger bar area.

Very helpful and attentive staff.
Enjoyed the outside seating.
Food came out fast.
We all had salads. Good, fresh ingredients
The seared ahi salad dressing was almost unnoticeable. Could use a little zesty flavor.

We've lived in the Tucson area for 2 years and have dined at the Wildflower several times. It is somewhat disappointing to see the same menu items with no changes or specials offered at lunch. The receptionist and our waiter were satisfactory but certainly not deserving of a top restaurant in Tucson rating. The overall four star rating would have been a 3.5 if that were offered. Our evening dining experiences have been excellent for the food quality but very poor because of the noise level.

Wildflower is our favourite restaurant. The food is always delicious. The service is also good, and Tuesdays are always 1/2 off on the entire wine list, including the reserve list. In addition, the Bars of Sin are worth crawling across the desert on my hands and knees. The best dessert in the world!

As usual our lunch was wonderful. We both had the chicken salad sandwiches and have ever had chicken salad that tasted so good. The young lady that sat us was friendly and made me want to talk to her. Our server was exceptional and I believe had radar as seconds before my glass was empty it was filled, and I believe that 15 seconds after we were finished eating she cleared our dishes. The atmosphere makes me feel that I am in an English garden. We will continue enjoy going there.

I've had very goos service in past. Last night was an aberation hardly many customers, but agonizingly slow .cooperative server, but problem is probably kitchen/ After long delay, food served practically cold, On the other hand, companion's meat came hot and appropriate. Kitchen remade supper, but it took a long time, by which time, I could no longer stay.

My wife and I dined at Wildflower for the first time recently in celebration of our anniversary. We were pleased with the whole evening there. My date had a Thai Grapefruit martini which she thought was wonderful. I had a cabernet that was good. She started with a dinner salad that was enjoyable. I ordered the paella, she ordered the lemongrass scallops. Both were substantial and tasty dishes. Service was properly paced, friendly, and knowledgeable.

We will definitely return to Wildflower. If our experience is as pleasant I would certainly consider upgrading my review grades. I just like to determine consistency.

We had a gift certificate for our anniversary so we tried Wildflower. We will definitely be back. The food was delicious. The service a bit slow but ok. We felt it was noisy inside so we opted for a table outside and totally enjoyed the view and the ambiance outside.

When relatives visit this is a place we take them! The food is always great, the service pleasant, and you're certain to see someone you know. Two in my party had the short-rib ravioli which they found delicious. I had the fish special (which was fantastic, by the way) and my sister-in-law had the bacon-wrapped pork about which she raved! We prefer the patio because (even in hot weather) it is shaded, they have misters, and it is much quieter for those who are hard-of-hearing.

My husband and I started with the calamari which was excellent. It was served with a lot of greens on the plate, which we had never seen before but it was a great combination. I had the sea bass special which was very good and my husband had the sesame shrimp pasta which he really enjoyed. We had a trainee along with the regular server and they gave us wonderful service.

One of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. Consistently good food, if small portions. Save for special occasions as somewhat expensive. Noisy restaurant makes conversation somewhat difficult.

We had a very nice lunch. Salad & sandwich were very tasty. Our server was especially friendly and helpful. The bill was incorrect but easily corrected. We were the first people to be seated at 11:05 but not the 1st to receive food for some reason. Still a pleasant lunch with good food.

We were seated in a far corner, when it was sparsely populated, which was OK - service was good. When more people arrived, it was difficult to get service. The food was great - hot and freshly prepared. When I tried to pay with my gift cards, there was confusion - I put out 2 gift cards to cover the bill. No explanation as to why one of them was returned, without charging it. And the bill for desert was given to me, when I told the server that the other couple was paying for desert.
