Enjoyed a late Christmas lunch with a friend. We picked Wildwood because it is quiet and has a varied menu. I had the quiche, it was very good, but maybe a little too browned. My friend had the new salmon special and she loved it.

The food was fantastic! We were sat at 9:35 with a 9:00 reservation, but received complimentary appetizers which took 25 minutes to receive. Overall the service was very slow.

We went to Wildwood for a New Year’s Eve dinner. The food was excellent. We also got a complimentary glass of champagne. The service was a little slow, but it was New Year’s Eve. I definitely recommend dining there for special occasions and holidays, or for any reason. It’s a very nice atmosphere too.

This is a very comfortable Geneva Restaurant. The food is consistently excellent as is the service. I like that the noise level is moderate...there is "buzz" but you can have a conversation without yelling.

This was a family dinner with 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Wildwood has an excellent menu. One of the good things is that the house or Caesar salad is included with the entree. Everyone thought there meal was very good. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and ambience. Highly recommended!

One of our family traditions is to go out to dinner after attending church. While we have tried different restaurants, Wildwood is our favorite and we enjoy the whole atmosphere of this restaurant. Thanks for creating an environment to celebrate wonderful family events.

Wildwood is a frequent special-occasion-date-night location for my wife and I. The food is consistently excellent - on this visit I had the short ribs and gnocchi special while my wife had the raspberry duck special. My only complaint was that the dining room was incredibly understaffed, so service was a bit slow. Our waiter was great when he was around, but he was covering far too many tables. He mentioned that it was busier than a usual late dinner Monday, which I can believe, though it was the day before Christmas, which I suspect whoever does the scheduling overlooked. Still, I'll keep going back because the food is so good and the service issues seemed like a one-off.

Basically a good dining experience but our waiter was not well versed in which dishes were or could be made gluten free. I ordered a steak and requested a bite that the kitchen be aware I am gluten intolerant and the dish came with two large breaded onion rings. I don’t know if the error was on the part of the kitchen or the waiter, but neither is good for business. Otherwise, the good was quite good and the restaurant felt warm and inviting.

The food was fantastic but the service was sub-par. We had a group of 11 and had a reservation 60 days prior to the dinner. When we arrived, the table was all ready but the service was extremely slow. It took about 15 minutes for our server to even stop by our table. Once she did, she took our drink orders and did not come back with the drinks for 35 more minutes. Very disappointing. Our food order took over an hour to be brought to the table. Very sad.

We always come away from here satisfied and tonight was no expectation. We have our business holiday party there and our server, Rachael, was outstanding with our large-ish party. I ordered the filet minion and it was perfect! All the steaks seemed great around the table and everyone enjoyed the variety and taste of their sides. Highly recommend for a large group or a romantic night out!!

Absolutely overpriced for the quality and presence of food. We did not feel welcomed as we entered. Table service was okay but not great. There are so many other choices of restaurants in that price range that we will probably not return.

We love everything about Wildwood and we believe that is why it is so popular. Full house on weekends and the noise level does take over. The food was wonderful and the waiter was excellent.

Food was very good. The restaurant very busy so service a bit slow. The wine was good so it was a good dinner. We understood service wouldn't be as fast due to Christmas time and all. Always management coming around to see how we were doing. Love this restaurant good food, prices are good!
