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.

First and foremost, Julianne, our server, was AMAZING. Her energy level was above and beyond. Enjoyed the crudo as an appetizer. Steak was cooked to perfection. The short rib ravioli changes lives. Wines presented at value! Post lunch drinks, also very pleasing and at a value. Highly recommend. Love the server attire - everyone looked to be on the same page.

From the time we opened the door until we paid the check, the service was impeccable. It was the hostess's first day and she was lovely and energetic. Our server was polite and offered great suggestions. The food was delicious and perfectly portioned. We were celebrating a birthday and the complimentary dessert was decadent! We will definitely be back!

We dined inside. The noise level was very high. I could barely hear my partner sitting across from me. A lot of noise from kitchen and bar.

We sat on the patio, which is totally covered, nicely misted and cool even in the heat. The music was much less obtrusive on the patio. The food was, as usual, divine and the service perfect.

We dined on a Sunday afternoon, having made 5:15 reservations, since Open Table did not allow a later time. Even though there were only two other occupied tables in the restaurant, maybe it was because they were short on staff that they couldn't handle more later reservations. Other diners occupied tables on the outdoor patio. When we arrived, our server offered us bread and dipping oil.
I ordered the (3 piece) fish and chips plate, which was tasty but salty. My spouse had the grilled shrimp & avocado bowl with rice . . . but was still hungry after finishing his meal, so he had some of my fries. Our server was very attentive and checked back with us frequently to see if we needed anything else. The service was excellent.
Our table of dark wood looked a little unsanitary, although the napkins were clean and neat. There were few diners in the room, but the noise level was quite loud. If I were to advise a friend to dine at Wildflower, I would do so with reservations.

I have been a regular Wildflower guest for many years. This was my first experience with the food being mediocre at best. I ordered the artichoke appetizer and pappardelle for the main course, both former favorites. The artichoke was very undercooked and the pappardelle was tasteless—not the quality I had come to enjoy at Wildflower.

I have lived in Arizona forv20 years and Wildflower and the other Fox restaurants have always been my favorites. North was my other one but I know Sam Fox no longer owns it. Pity. No more artichokes there!!!! Will have to keep with Wildflower. The staff know me and will confirm that I have never over 20 years have made 1 complaint. Please don’t sell it Sam. Pam Gettins

Wildflowe has a good atmosphere but the ambient noise inside the restaurant (as opposed to patio dining) makes conversation difficult. 3 guests enjoyed the food but the Fish and Chips lunch was disapointing.

Wildflower never fails to offer excellent food and service at a reasonable price. We enjoyed Friday night dinner on the patio with another couple and had an excellent meal. The Wildflower appetizers complement the entrees and we enjoyed a bottle of wine (plus a few extra glasses of wine). Wildflower continues to be our favorite neighborhood restaurant for lunch, brunch or dinner. We highly recommend Wildflower.

Getting together after being apart for so long! Choosing Wildflower was a great idea, as we all enjoyed the wine choces, the food and the service. We all had different meals - Shrimp Avocado bowl, Paparadelli, Seasonal salad with salmon (cooked as ordered!) - and they were delish!

They sat us in a walkway where people were coming and going on both sides. I asked for a table further back and they could not accommodate since there were only 4 tops out in the patio further back and all were supposedly booked. My reservation was early enough that I should have insisted especially since the outdoor misters were broken and the temps were high. Maybe the indoor spots would have been better since we were in such a trafficked area, that being outdoors was irrelevant! The food was good although mine came with only 3 shrimp for 20$. The wait staff were excellent. I paid over 130$ for the meal and drinks and really was not happy with the overall experience because of the seating.
