Always a super place for dinner. At crowded times the indoor area is noisy, but outdoor seating is fairly quiet.

Had daughters flying in from Canada and direct to restaurant to meet wife on her 70th birthday. Staff was very attentive, food great as always.
Very happy that we chose this location for our surprise.

If you go early (we went at 4:15pm) for dinner, it is quiet inside and you can enjoy the comfortable booths.. In addition happy hour goes from 3-6 every day with great deals if you drink.. and really tasty small plates you can have as appetizer... all at a great price!
We had a very friendly attentive server who with no complaint gave each couple their own bill, (we were a party of 6) She brought us fresh bread several times and was kept the water glasses full and also kept checking to see if we needed anything else.
I really like how they are careful if you make special requests to your order to fulfill them just as you requested. We had several members of our party with dietary restrictions.
Fresh tasting food and a lovely ambience!

Always consistently great food at a great price. Noisy inside, so ask for a patio table. Drink concoctions are very strong. Bread + olive oil starter outstanding.

One of my favorite restaurants inTucson. Always consistent and delicious. Love the grilled artichoke, the Salmon appetizer, short rib ravioli and the Mussels. All time faves but you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Enjoy!.

Ambience, service and food terrific! Unfortunately we sat outside near lots of greenery and large flower pots and my ankles and feet were eaten alive...many painful bites from outside dining. Too bad as we really enjoyed the atmosphere and food! They need to spray for insects, bugs.

My husband enjoyed the fish special barramundi sea bass. Presentation was nice. Fish was not gamy.
I had the Spanish paella. My new favorite. I tell you the mussels melted in my mouth. Just thinking about them makes my mouth water. The scallops, shrimp and clams were also cooked perfectly. Waitress Renee was attentive and not over bearing.

We loved our experience....mainly because we had a fantastic table way up front in the bushes in the corner and really enjoyed the ambiance of that spot. It was mothers day and you were crazy busy but we still felt well attended to.

We had a fantastic time at Wildflower this past Saturday evening. The pork tenderloin paired with the Twomey Sauvignon Blanc was out outstanding. Also, great seating accommodations, friendliness and hospitality by Nancy and her staff. We are going back again and making “Wildflower”a weekly habit!

I love this restaurant even though the food is inconsistent and it's so LOUD! Even though I've always liked the calamari and the fish dishes, the menu hasn't changed much in the past 15 years and I wish it would. It would also be a lot nicer atmosphere if one didn't have to wear ear plugs or read lips in order to have a conversation--some baffling would be helpful. The service is always friendly, which I appreciate because this place is always really busy.

My wife and I heard about Wildflower as having excellent food and atmosphere, so I mad reservations for a Friday date night. Our waitress seated us in a cozy alcove surrounded by beautiful potted plants and overlooking the rest of the outside dining area. We were able carry on a normal conversation, but didn't feel completely isolated. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful with the menu since it was our first visit to Wildflower. She answered all our questions and provided helpful suggestions on the meal. We ordered the chef's board appetizer that was very good and could have been a meal itself. I ordered the salmon and my wife the pork dinners. Both meals were done to perfection and had excellent flavor. My wife also ordered a specialty bourbon drink that was very good as well. For desert we shared a coconut creme' brulee, we were pleasantly surprised because the coconut gave the desert excellent taste and a pleasing texture. We will be recommending Wildflower to others and plan to return for more dates and to try their lunch.

The food and service was exceptional. If you want a quote dinner eat outside since the indoor area was kind of loud.

I order the bacon pork loin which was extremely tasty and very feeling

Wildflower is an elegantly casual dining space with a lovely patio and a small bar area.
The food and service are consistently very good.
The menu is interesting and many of their signature items continue to be served over time, such as their fried calamari appetizer served over greens - too delicious!!
Follow that with a creme brulee and you are in heaven.
I can recommend this restaurant with confidence.
