One of our local "go to" places. A great variety of choices on the menu. The service is always first rate even on a busy night. Good ambiance and noise level is moderate

I was there for business dinner. There were 5 of us and we ordered a lot of food. Everything was excellent and the service was great as well. The truffle Mac and cheese is unbelievable- I highly recommend this if you like truffle. The lobster bisque was good but my least favorite. Great at first but is very rich and... More

My husband wanted to celebrated Valentine's Day early, so he picked Wildfish. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Wildfish. Make sure you get there early, it gets crowded after 5. Heather was the perfect waitress, she was very attentive and she informed us of popular items and she also made her personal recommendations. We enjoyed everything we tasted. We enjoyed... More

We arrived in Newport Beach on Saturady and wanted to have some seafood...it was early (6:00 so PM) so we went to the restaurant thinking it would be easy to get in. The dining room was full so we seated ourselves in the bar. The service could not have been better and the food was delicious, We ordered the crabcakes... More

Great dining experience! Our waitress was great, very helpful on recommendations! My girlfriend got the Swordfish Steak which she said was amazing! It was her birthday so they gave her a pink rose which was nice and subtle. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly! However it was lacking in something, I couldn't really tell. It was however worth... More

My first visit to Wildfish Seafood Grille and I was pleasantly surprised. The service was impeccable, with nice ambiance, but the food was the STAR! We started with the crabcake...it was so yummy, mainly because it wasn't overly saturated with binders or anything resembling mayonaise. The salads were a pleasant surprise as well...so fresh! I suggest splitting them since they... More

Excellent service and food. Always nice when the hostess and waiter greet you by name when you arrive. Makes you feel as though there is an extra level of attention. Had the Branzino and Sable fish and both were excellently prepared. Lobster mash potatoes were a real hit also, as was the crème boule dessert. Nice atmosphere and very easy... More

Good food, nice service, should have made a reservation. Had to sit at the bar, which was OK but crowded, because it was a Friday night!

We have been here many times in the past and just love. Although the name has the word "fish" in it don't be fooled!! As we have reviewed many times in the past, "best steak ever" my wife opts for the 8oz filet, while I am particularly fond of the ribeye. Yellowtail sashimi to start and butter wedge are also...
