It's really dark when you walk in here but your eyes gradually get used to it. It's basically a steakhouse that has as much fish as steak on the menu. The food is nothing special. I started with oysters, which seemed fresh and tasty but the accompanying sauces weren't very good. I then had a Caesar salad, which was very... More

We went shopping at South Coast Plaza and got hungry. Where to go? Ended up at Wildfish with the wife and kids. Got there a little after 4 pm and started with Happy hour of wine (for those over 21), oysters, fish tacos and ahi tartare. All fantastic. Then moved into the entrees and desserts. Everything was top notch and... More

When we arrived at Wildfish Seafood Grille, we were ready to be disappointed. It's located in a shopping mall. I'd asked to be seated in the back outdoor patio, and for some reason I thought the restaurant would be located near the ocean since the address is Newport Beach. This was a special night, since we were celebrating our anniversary... More

Laura, our server, was excellent. Very attentive, courteous, friendly and professional. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the food. I had the heirloom tomato salad as a starter. The tomatoes were very good but they skimped on the buffalo mozzarella. I had to slice the cheese to make it last until the last tomato and i had several pieces... More

Five of us dined in a great circular booth in this upscale but casual restaurant. Appetizers include potstickers, lobster bisque and salads. Dinner included halibut, swordfish, sea bass and lamb chops. Happy birthday dessert was perfect - chocolate cake & ice cream. Fantastic dinner!

Six of our family members met for dinner at Wildfish Grille. We had some of the best seafood and steaks we had ever eaten. For appetizers, we had fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail, and lobster bisque. Everyone was pleased with their choice. For the entrees, two of us ordered the steaks, two had scallops, and two of us had fish. Everything... More

What makes this place unique is the deserts. The food and service was very good, but the bananas foster was amazing.

Found this on trip advisor since we are not locals. From the minute we entered until the final drink of the night the staff were all exceptional. Cody, our server, helped us decide on lobster bisque and crab fried rice to go with our yummy rib eye (huge) steak. Best selection of wine, ask for a taste before you decide,... More

The service was impeccable. We were greeted by very charming and welcoming staff and our waiter was attentive. The menu provided a very interesting and wide selection of appetizers and main courses with very American cuisine. Good selection of fish and beef choices. Everything was a la carte so one had to mix and match. By my standards this is... More

This is an awesome restaurant. The food is amazing. I ordered the Sea bass and it was out of this world. The restaurant is on pricey side but the food is worth it.
