Contemporary American
Wildflower, the first Fox Restaurant Concept, raised the culinary bar when it opened in Tucson in 1998. To this day, it continues to set the standard for innovative New American Cuisine featuring a melting pot of American classics with European and Asian influences. If that’s not enough, the restaurant offers 80 wines by the bottle and 25 by the glass – an excellent range for both the wine connoisseur and the novice.

Wonderful food, great service, lovely atmosphere. Only complaint was that I had to ask for bread and the music was a little loud. The chef was flexible and creative with my dietary requests!

We come here every time we visit Tucson. It is usually one of the first restaurants we visit because it is consistently outstanding and has wonderful menu items. One of our favorite appetizers is the grilled artichoke. This is an item you should maybe request when making a reservation since it seems many people like it and they can run short. All in all you can’t go wrong visiting this place for lunch or dinner.

Our first experience at Wildflower was fantastic. this experience was not good. Service was terrible. Plates sat for 10-15 minutes, needed to flag down another server to get a desert menu. Such a disappointment given how wonderful our first experience was. Coo-do's to the Chef! food is fantastic.

The restaurant is nicely tucked in a plaza center. It’s beautifully designed, especially the patio area, but the only thing was they’re lunch menu lacked a bit of red meat options. The food I chose to eat was tasty.

Ordered bbq chicken tacos, typically one of my favorite dishes at Wildflower. Surprised at scarcity of chicken in the tacos. Disappointed, compared to other visits at which I ordered the same dish.

We sat on the patio on a beautiful evening and enjoyed the wonderful bacon wrapped date appetizer with our wine/beer. Then we had a nice dinner, one had the pot pie, and the other the spinach pappardelle. Both were good, but not great. We'll certainly go back again...

We sat outside at Wildflower on a nice Tucson evening at a pleasant and comfortable table. Inside, the restaurant was a bit noisier, but the outside seating area was relatively quiet. We began with a grilled artichoke appetizer that was excellent — perfectly cooked, grilled with a bit of smoky flavor, with a tasty aioli for dipping leaves. Best artichoke we’ve had in a restaurant! Then we both had the paella, which was also excellent: each type of seafood was perfectly cooked and the rice base was very flavorful but not too salty (a seemingly common problem in other restaurants serving paella). The paella went very well with a nice glass of Albariño we found on the wine menu. A very enjoyable dining experience with a professional and knowledgeable server. Will go back next time we’re in town!

A night of terrible service!! Been going to this restaurant for years, but do not care to go again anytime soon. They blamed a large party for the slow service. We made our reservation only 2 hours ahead. If they could not accommodate us, they should not accept it. The party was only about 20 people and the restaurant was only half filled otherwise. They would not seat us on the patio, yet the entire time we were there, there were numerous patio seats available. Our service was notably slower than tables around us, and it took hours. We did not order anything special that required extra time. When our main courses finally arrived, they had obviously been under a heating lamp, were dried out, and smaller portions than our appetizers. The mixed seafood dish I ordered was missing some of the described seafood..and it was a special. While our waiter was unapologetic during the meal, he gave us about 30% off the entire bill. Still, I was the experience and the food we were looking for, not a cheaper meal. We will choose another restaurant for the experience next time!

Since Cheesecake took over this once great restaurant has gone downhill. The bread which was ok is now poor and changed within days of the takeover I understand. The clamari starter was missing flavor ,the donut desert which was always outstanding with the custard to dip only ad half the normal custard. WE order expensive wine $100 or so but now with no bread to go with it if we return we will order a much less expensive wine.

The pork tenderloin was delicious, but the grilled shrimp entree could have used another shrimp or two, although the dish was very tasty as well. The service and atmosphere were delightful and we enjoyed our meal very much.

We arrived a bit early and were immediately seated outside on the wonderful patio at our request . Our waitress took our drink order and told us the specials. The appetizers were great, the entrees we prepared perfectly.

Our waitress was super friendly and helpful, just can’t say enough about how we were treated and served.

Highly recommend and wish I could return weekly.

This place has delicious food and is consistent. On this occasion they may have been short handed. Our waitress appeared to be a little grouchy and there didn’t seem to be a bartender so drink order took a long time. But still one of my favs

Food was wonderful. We shared the Seafood paella and scallop dishes and both were beautifully cooked with great layers of flavor. Although a bit warm we sat outside because inside was too noisy and too cold! Outside is fine even though it abuts the parking lot and we did have a couple of headlights in the eyes moments.
