Our second time there. I had the black rice and shrimp bowl—good, but not as good as the lemongrass scallops which were heavenly.

Our server was very attentive and filled with menu knowledge. She did a perfect wine service the way it's supposed to be done and was very engaging in conversation.
The food is, as always, delicious with such yummy flavors making every experience there a special one. Thank you!

We were accommodated outside on the expanded patio, which we appreciated very much. A nice evening for outdoor dining with fish and chips and a bottle of Albariño, great service, followed by donuts to die for. Thank you, Wildflower staff.

We liked our meal here so much that we went back two days later. Mind, we were only staying in Tucson 4 nights. The atmosphere is great, the service wonderful and the food outstanding.

We loved our server, Holly. She was amazing! I had the lemongrass scallops—they were the best scallops I’ve ever had. The black rice and soy dressing were out of this world!

The food was amazing. Our service was quite slow. Multiple tables that were seated after us were greeted by their server and provided with bread and beverages before we ever even saw our server.

We decided to sit outside after walking inside to greet the hostess and it was incredibly loud. We asked the hostess to sit in the back corner and she accommodated perfectly! She was super sweet and made the best conversation. Then we were served by Jasmine and she was the sweetest most informative server we have ever had the pleasure being served by. If I needed more of something she didn’t hesitate to run back and grab it for me in a timely manner. We will definitely be back as this was our first time at Wildflower and we are obsessed now! We recommend asking for Jasmine but I am sure the other servers are just as amazing ☺️

Very safe environment. The food is always prepared well. The shrimp and avocado bowl is very flavorful, as either an appetizer to share or an entree. The wine menu is extensive as is the mixed drink menu.
A good choice during these times as the CDC recommendations are followed.

Great late lunch on the patio for husbands birthday. Delicious salmon and grilled shrimp and avocado bowl. Patio seating provided plenty of space between tables. Complimentary desert, bars of sin, topped off a wonderful meal. Service excellent too.

The ambiance was good. The service was good. The seating was okay, but right behind the doors, so we got a lot of drafty breezes when the doors were left open for a time.

The food, from the cheese/cauliflower soup to the Asian chicken salad, was fabulous! The service was outstanding. Sitting on the enclosed patio was a delight. Made reservations on line, which was extremely easy, and Wildflower provided updates and reminders of the reservation.

Wildflower is my favorite restaurant for lunch in Tucson!

Very pleasant lunch with 2 friends. The Fish & Chips were very good but a bit too crunchy.....hard to stick a fork into.
Servers were terrific.

The waitress Maria was great. The appetizers and entrees were delicious. We went for Valentines pre fixed Menu. The desserts (cheesecake and apple pie) were underwhelming. They were a modern take on traditional desserts but didn’t live up to the hype. Stick to classic desserts such as molten lava cake, regular cheesecake, etc. Overall I would return. The entrees were worth the visit.

I do not like the question "Would you recommend to a friend?", If I had answered no would it mean I did not like it or I do not make recommendations to friends. They are completely different. That question should never be used in a survey but it shows up all the time.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Great service and atmosphere. Dinner was pricey, as I’ve been here before during regular times, but to be expected because of the particular day.

Valentine's Day

Made online reservations for their (direct email) advertised Prix Fixe Menu. The only time available online was 12:15 PM. We were seated, left with regular menus, then ignored for 15 minutes or more. When I asked about the Prix Fixe Menu I was told that it applied to Dinner only and not available until 4:00 (?) PM. This was not specified in their email ad. I ordered the New York Strip from the menu which they provided, more expensive, but not really an issue to us. We just wanted to eat. 5 minutes later the Server notified us that they were "out" of the steaks. I asked why they would be out so early on perhaps one of their busiest days and was told that they were reserved for the Prix Fixe Special, which we thought we were signed up for in the first place. Shortly thereafter, the Manager visited us, who was very polite, and said that she'd gladly "work it out" so that I could have a "reserved" steak at the advertised Prix Fixe price by comping us dessert, etc. Server said he was going to get us some bread & butter, now likely 20-25 minutes from being seated. We watched him greeting other customers, delivering drinks, bread etc to a few parties who arrived after us, almost as if we were being punished for not ordering cocktails as we noticed that the others were.

Even with restricted seating, they were not at all busy. Disappointing to see one of the Fox Concepts Holdings provide such poor service.

We finally walked out and had a great lunch at Firebird's Grill in La Encantada.
