Way, way too noisy even outside. The music was not a pleasant experience. Food was above average, not spectacular. Service was good, tho the waiter could have come back mid-meal to check on us.

Our first time here. What a pleasant surprise. We ate outside. The wait staff was great making sure we all had our own heaters. The ambiance was wonderful with the plants surrounding us. Each course was amazing. We loved the mussels and we each had a fish dish. The scallops and the Barramundi fish special. They both were wonderful but gotta say that Barramundi was probably the best I've ever had! Dessert was yummy as well especially if you like chocolate! Service was excellent. Its great when they have multiple wait staff bring the food when ready. Can't wait to go back.

Wildflower is consistently dry good. Service and food always outstanding.

NOISE level on patio. Every time we are interrupted by the horrible scraping / grinding of chairs being moved on pavers. For such a good Resturaunt it is an easy fix.

RUBY sliders by BulbHead. Available on Amazon.

I am certain you have heard this complaint before. FIX IT. Then you will be 5 star perfect.

This has been my favorite restaurant for years. Haven’t been there in a couple of years so I was excited to go back. Ordered a dish I’d had many times and had to ask the server if it was a mistake. I only took a few bites and left it. Don’t know what the problem is but was sad the food was so bad. I’m guessing the same problems every other restaurant is having.

Sitting in the patio or atrium area was really delightful. The noise level was very low as compared to the main restaurant after it filled up. Our server Peter was exceptional, he worked a table and took care of us at every turn. The food was prepared perfectly and the cocktails were spectacular.

Reservation at noon- people drifted in steady customers which kept the inside
noise to a minimum. Shawn, our waiter, was outstanding! Artichoke appetizer
was tasty, cocktails excellent, entree served at just the right time, proper
temperatures. Dessert and cafe mochas as well as plenty of water(which we
never had to ask for a refill or even give an indication).
Have enjoyed this restaurant for many years!

The menu was small but each choice was unique and everybody had no issues picking items that satisfied. Questions about ingredients were answered clearly and easily from our knowledgeable server. Raves all around. Then it was time for dessert…Wow! Each of us picked something different and the desserts were exceptional. Prices were reasonable considering the quality of the food and service…very impressed!

What was the farmers salad ( might not be the exact name but it was full of Brussels sprouts, quinoa, sweet potatoes etc) is now reformulated into mostly lettuce with maybe a teaspoon of quinoa & 1 Brussels sprout and a few tiny cubes of sweet potatoes. Disappointing.
However, the patio is a lovely spot to have lunch.

We enjoyed our dinner a great deal but I have to say it was sometimes difficult to have a conversation because the noise level was high.
Also, the waitress had sold me on the special (sea bass) but once I ordered it she came back to tell me that they were out of it. I was disappointed but I do understand about supply chain issues these days.
Everyone enjoyed their dinners and our waitress was great. And we will be going back.

Wildflower has become one of my favorite go to restaurants since moving to Tucson in August of 2021. I proudly brought out of town guests on the 14th to celebrate my sisters birthday. To my surprise, the bartender was assigned as our waiter and needless to say he wasn’t prepared to do both tasks as he did not check back with us throughout our dining experience. My sister ordered the salmon which arrived under cooked. Her boyfriend ordered medium well steak and it arrived medium rare. I was absolutely stunned that this happened as it has never been my experience in the dozen or so times that I have dined there. The manager offered apologies and adjusted the two orders that were not prepared properly. He further gave a 10% discount which I don’t feel was nearly enough for the inconvenience. Either way, to say I was disappointed is an understatement. I was embarrassed that I highly recommended Wildflower this time around.

We were seated exactly as I requested. Our server was wonderful! I feel the food was not great. Certainly acceptable and edible but just OK. Noise level was good. We could discuss business and did not bother other lunchers. I will continue to go to Wildflower due to all the other nice features. Really like the patio.

Extremely disappointed! Server seemed very busy and so was extremely inattentive. Slow and unavailable. The food was mediocre. It used to be so great. I added $9 salmon to my salad and it had no flavor and looked like it fell off a truck. The quality has really declined and it is sad since this was one of our favorite restaurants.
