I loved this restaurant. My grown daughter and I had such a special evening here. The staff were attentive but also left us alone to visit. The food was amazing and so healthy. I had the fish special, which was amazing, and my daughter had paella, which was also amazing. The décor was lovely without taking itself too seriously. We truly enjoyed our time here. Thank you.

The painfully loud room negated the fantastic food. My ears actually hurt when I left the restaurant, and my friend said she could not hear me. Service was barely adequate.

I won't dine inside, it is too far too noisy and ruins the experience. The outdoor dining area is quite in the cooler weather. Oracle road traffic noise can't be avoided but is nothing compared to the sound level inside.

Food is consistent, service is inconsistent but we had a very nice server last night. Mixed bag, its not in my top ten.

Wildflower never disappoints. One of my guests this time is vegan. When she mentioned this, our waiter suggested a special dish that was not on the menu! And it was delicious. A perfect experience.

We were in town for a tennis tournament.
Your place came up on internet search so thought we’d give it a try. Very happy we did!! Food was excellent. Can tell it was made by a high end chef
We had a group of 8 and found it a little difficult to talk. Seems noisy because it’s so open. Probably better for smaller group

Wonderful service. Was a busy night however didn’t have to wait to long at all for a great table service or food and drinks. I had the chicken pot pie which did seem undercooked and not as tasteful as I hoped but was still good.

Food as always was wonderful, but am reluctant to use Open Table for reservations as we were again seated at a table at the end of the entrance ramp and where all guest and waiter traffic passes. My husband did not ask to be reseated as we were with new friends. This is the second time this has happened on Open Table.

They have a great front porch dining and the inside is also very beautiful. I recommend this place because you can tell the intensity and focus they put in your food and your overall experience. This place is very special.

We loved the food and the service. The staff was wonderful. The only drawback was the noise level. It was difficult to converse with the person next to you. Bring the noise level down and it could be the ideal romantic restaurant.

Wildflower has a diverse menu with selections from comfort chicken pot pie to scallops. I have a great barramundi last night. The location is great. It has a beautiful patio and the Casas Adobes center is worth a stroll for th shops and the architecture.

Wildflower is one of the best places to dine in Tucson. Food and service are always excellent and at reasonable prices for the quality received. Outstanding food choices tonight included the scallops entree, the paella, and the newly added chicken pot pie! Desserts are amazing also!

Amazing!! Finally found my favorite place to eat in Tucson. This is the third time I have visited Tucson since my daughter started college in the fall. I have yet to find a restaurant that I was 100 percent pleased with until now. This place is the best ! I had the grapefruit martini which was so delish.. Then we ordered the edamame appetizer which was incredible. I had the spinach pasta with shaved chicken in a light tomato broth. It was such a good choice .. I loved it! I think that all the dishes would be just as tasty. My husband had the steak and also found it to be excellent. Finally when we got the bill I found it was quite reasonably which was another plus. Being from New York I am spoiled with the quality of food I am used to and this place is a definite hit! Can't wait to return and try the other choices on the menu.

Alyssa was great!
She always had a smile on and treated us well. My boyfriend and I were pleased with her great customer service. The food was delicious, but the best part was their dessert. We ordered Bars of Sin, and they were truly a sin. What a great experience for our first time there!

The patio area is quieter than inside during the busy lunch hour. The service is always excellent, and the kitchen is able to make changes to some items if necessary. The market salad is not only a healthy option, it has a wonderful flavor. Their Asian salad is one of the best in town.
Bars of sin is a wonderful way to end the meal and there is enough for 2-3 people.
