Description: As with everything great, one must first seek the roots. In our case, we are lucky enough to have our first restaurant, Wildflower, continuously thriving and serving the local and die-hard fans of Fox Restaurant Concepts in Tucson. While our seasonal menu changes with the calendar, the walls and décor with the years, the one thing that has remained steadfast and true is Wildflower’s carefully constructed plates, artfully shaken martinis and loyalty to its guests. You could call it a long-term love affair, and you’d just be scratching the surface.

“Informally cool”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We have not been to Wildflower since it opened at least 15 years ago. What a mistake for us. We've been missing out on what I would call one of the best Happy Hour menus in town. It's daily from 3 PM to 6 PM. This is now added to one of my favorites. The decor is raging with hip snazzy decor. A very large outdoor seating area with lots of misters to keep you comfortable. We went with a friend and opted to be inside. We were there at about 5.30PM and it was not crowded at this time so the noise level was perfect. However, it did get crowded and got a bit noisy by the time we were finished. Maybe, sitting outside next time would be an option for us. Enough of my crabbing. Now to the Happy Hour menu. There are five wonderful items to choose from. Hard to make a decision. The crispy shrimp, zucchini, onion, caper aioli was incredible. Light and flaky with a real punch to it. The wild mushroom toast grilled ciabatta, goat cheese and roasted garlic was very flavorful and zesty. We also had the chicken skewer soy ginger caramel, radish sprouts and toasted sesame seeds. Very good choice. Their margarita was excellent. The rest of the menu looked like it has some great offerings. Looking forward to going again and trying something off the regular menu. This place is a good choice for taking visitors to because it reflects the flavor of Tucson living. P.S. The bread and the olive oil with garlic and herbs is amazing. I'm a big bread lover and ate half a loaf. No wonder I was exceedingly full.

“Nice outdoor seating and great cocktails”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We had dinner here and sat outside. Very nice cocktails and good food. No real problem getting gluten-free for the celiac in our group. Excellent desserts.

“Great ambiance and food to match”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Really great find. Outside patio was great as was the service and the food. Excellent bread with even better olive oil dipping sauce. Friendly bartenders and servers. Would definitely go back.

Everything about our little mother-daughter luncheon was nice. The service was nice and professional. The wine was nice in the amount of "third". The noodles were nice and fresh. The farmers salad was nice in its balance of flavors. The complimentary bread and dipping oil was nice and soft and savory. The atmosphere was nice and bright.

My seven year old daughter and I had a very nice little lunch together. I look forward to someday trying Wildflower for dinner.

“One of the best places in Tucson”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I don't even know how to start ! This place was just amazing in every way! The food is just amazing, the place inside is beautiful, and the outdoor seating is also beautiful. The waiters there are very fast, and they know exactly when to come and have a good sense of humor, which made our meal just that much more special !
