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.

It’s just a lovely place. Love the outside and inside seating but outside was what we choose this time. It’s a staple restaurant that I recommend you visit at least once; I’m sure you’ll be back after that first visit.

Very disappointed in the visit. The hostess was rude. They sat us where it was very noisy and when we requested to sit elsewhere they said no and that there were all booked out. But an hour and half later when we left the table that we had requested was still open. Also it seems that they only cater to white people. Absolutely no diversity. We were the only colored people there. Felt by the way we were treated, we were not welcome. Also it is very kid unfriendly restaurant. I've been there many times this was the first time we felt this way. Hope this was an anomaly and not a conscious effort to make this restaurant whites only.

We’ve been going to Wildflower for years. The food is always excellent. It would be great if they had a kids menu, even if limited. The noise level inside is always a bit high. The waitress could have checked on us a little bit more but overall it was, as always, a nice dinner.

Wildflower’s manager graciously presented us with desserts on the house, to celebrate our anniversary. Service (Miguel) was first rate, and our meals were delicious. Overall, a great experience at Wildflower, as always!

Overall, the food was okay. However, we waited over 80 minutes to get our food. The waiter was phenomenal, but I will never want to wait that long for food. There were people that arrived after us, got their food and left before we got our entrees. We didnt have to say anything, the waiter gave us free dessert (very average) but I would have appreciated a discount more. Overall, it was average for decent food and a terrible wait time to get the food at the table.

My favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food and service was good. Two of us enjoyed sharing three good sized appetizers and found we were too full for dessert. We ate outside on the patio as the inside is way too noisy for us. Even in the extreme summer evening heat the patio temperature was comfortable with the misters and fans going.

Gave it another try after our last time July 4th. Server was not attentive and irritated when I asked for straws and more bread. Had to wait forever for the check. Will not be back for while.

Salmon - overcooked, dipping oil for bread - just okay, martini-poorly made. Paella, however, was good.

the only available table was outside even with a reservation and since it was over 100 degrees it wasn’t very comfortable even with the misters. the chef’s board is AMAZING, but i couldn’t order the beef short ribs because they were sold out. i decided on the shrimp and avocado. it was alright, but there were only 3 shrimp and the avocado was not ripe at all so i couldn’t eat it. my boyfriend ordered the smoked mozzarella ravioli and it was also alright but a pretty small portion. i’d go back, but i wasn’t happy with the menu choices we made or the fact that they were sold out of the only thing i wanted and the waiter didn’t say anything about it until after i tried to order it.

The food and service was exceptional. while the menu is small it is all well done. The dessert selection was terrific. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. Perfect for entertaining out of town visitors or for a special occasion or for a satisfying night out.

Our food was amazing, our server was excellent: sincere, caring and knowledgeable. Cocktail was outstanding. Prices were as expected. The only bummer to our evening was something the place could do nothing about... an obnoxiously loud laugher at the booth next to us. Like “make your ears bleed” loud. Otherwise perfect night!

Excellent food as always. This was the first of Sam Fox's concept restaurants. We have dined here since the beginning. He has always innovated and not let the concept grow stale. Even redecorating often and changing the recipes periodically. Wildflower and all of his concepts always attracts the best talent in the front of the house and the back of the house. Growing up in the restaurant business I appreciate a great restaurant!

We always enjoy sitting outside, winter or summer, as it's much quieter than indoors! I loved the Market Salad (many tasty ingredients including golden beets, feta etc .) and the grilled steelhead salmon (medium rare). A friendly and available server made for an excellent dining experience . This is by far my favorite Tucson restaurant.

This is one of our favorite places to eat. However, I wish the noise level was less inside. Perhaps to need the music level down a little bit would help.

Wildflower delivers a wonderful meal and experience every time. Their menu is broad with many options. The food is delicious and the presentation beautiful. Service was excellent and we were given plenty of time to chat with friends. I love summer in Tucson restaurants- less crowded so more relaxed dining

Our reservation table request was given to another party and when we got there, the hostess was unaware and directed us to sit with the other group. The back booth was open and we were able to sit there. The server was not very attentive and did not bring items that were requested. The food was on par with previous visits.

This is the first time I have eaten at Wildflower. I invited a business associate to join me there for lunch. We sat outdoors. The staff was friendly, the service was perfect and the food was wonderful. I will lunch there again the next time I am in Tucson!

My sister and I chose Wildflower because we had never been there and wanted something different than the places we usually go. We loved the service we got from pleasant and knowledgeable Stephanie who had no problems when she was asked to come back several times because we were so busy chatting. We had Cauliflower and Cheddar soup which was delicious and then the Asian Chicken Salad was filled with different flavors and was not so huge that it was wasteful. The bread on the table is delicious and may be from Barrio Bakery, a great choice and the dipping oil was spicy good.
I only have one problem with my meal. The lemonade was not good. Tasted like a chemical mess simply citric acid for tart and some sugar for sweet. No lemon flavor. Had to have that replaced with tea.
