Wildfish Seafood Grille Restaurant Review

: A glance at the chalkboard above the exposed kitchen confirms this upscale restaurant’s commitment to fresh seafood. Besides the featured daily catches, there’s always a roster of oysters, best dunked into a cocktail sauce so powerful with horseradish, it’s called “atomic.” (The pungent root will have you leaking happy tears of pleasurable pain.) Regular menu offerings bring primo swimmers like Gulf snapper, Georges Bank lemon sole, Chilean sea bass, and on some lucky nights, Alaskan halibut stuffed with Jonah crab. Many dishes exude an Asian bent---thickly sliced, wok-seared Pacific ahi, for example, is rolled in black and white sesame seeds, tumbled with daikon sprouts, ginger, chopped tomato and shiitake mushrooms, then layered over soba noodles in a refreshingly light soy broth. There are juicy, USDA aged Prime steaks available, too, best paired with rich truffled macaroni and cheese gratinata.

Great Seafood with Fine Service

My fiance and I were looking for a nice seafood restaurant to celebrate our engagement and we chose to give Wildfish a try. Well, the experience from the time we were seated until the time we left was beyond exceptional!
The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu as well as the wine selection. We were also there during their happy hour, so we had an appetizer and salad to start, before the main courses. The apple walnut salad was very good and the dressing was light, with a touch of vinegrette. And the shrimp-filled pot stickers were out of this world!
Our main courses were the large sea scallops, and shrimp stuffed with crab meat. And, I have to say that I have never seen shrimp so huge in my life! It took at least three bites per shrimp!
To top off two fine meals, we ordered an upside down pineapple cake with vanilla ice cream. Wow! The cake came with homemade whipped cream and vanilla bean ice cream, but was light enough and was not overly sweet.
In summary, our experience was a memorable one! Some additional kudos, also, to the bread and the apple martini. Overall, from the service to the food, Wildfish did not disappoint us. And, the prices (on average) were in line (if not less) with most of the fine seafood restaurants in the Phoenix and/or Scottsdale area. We will definitely add this restaurant to our list of fine seafood dining restaurants!
