    They were super flexible in moving our large party reservation last minute. Food was amazing. We had the ahi tuna, cauliflower, carrots and shrimp from the appetizer menu. All delicious but super props on the cauliflower. Entrees we’re great. Wonderful atmosphere. The service was a tad slow but not unbearable.

    This was our third trip to Wildest for dinner. We brought another couple and ordered fries for the entire table after telling them how fabulous Wildest's shoestring fries are. They no longer have them, only regular thin fries which were fairly limp. Everyone did enjoy their meal or at least they said they did so we may come back at some point. We were just very disappointed.

    Wildest is my favorite restaurant in the desert. They have such beautiful, well thought out dishes with more sustainably grown or raised ingredients. Menu has a lot of desirable vegan and gluten free options. It’s healthy fine dining.

    A really good place to eat. Inside, the décor is modern, sophisticated, and underplayed. We don't prefer the high tables that are in much greater abundance than anywhere else I can remember, but the conventional tables were available as well. We were there on a Friday during Restaurant Week. Still, it was not crowded at all. Our server told us the special menu was selected from main one, but the portions were somewhat smaller. Still, I thought the main menu could have had a greater variety of entrees. The appetizer, calamari and mushrooms, was wonderful. The Caesar salad was cold and fresh. The sea bass was a little plain, but fine. The veggie ravioli in what I call a meatless ragu sauce is worth coming back for. Outstanding. And the chocolate mousse desert slid right down. Prices were fair. Did not evaluate the wine list. They are not on the Wine Vault program so I drank at home.

    Amazed at the quality, presentation, and flavors of every dish we tried!! We weren't sure what to expect based on the name or the website write up but we found the menu descriptions very interesting. The variety and breadth of the dishes is quite surprising. And when we tasted the food we couldn't believe how delicious every bite was. We have eaten at some of the best restaurants in over 60 countries and the flavors and experiences at Wildest were on par with many of them! A real desert treat!!

    Disappoitment for sure. Chicken and Waffles was a poor choice. Very bland chicken, no seasoning. Syrup delivered in the plastic container??? Seems odd for $22. Beignets made us both sick all afternoon. Something in that batter or oil. We eat this type of food often. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend or visit again when we are in this area.

    The interior of the restaurant is beautiful! They did an amazing jon! The beet salad was awesome! The waffle was nothing special and the fact it was served with a portion cup of Smuckers syrup was a turn off! This syrup is low quality and full oh high fructose corn syrup. I expected to be served real maple syrup or would not have ordered it. There was very little Avocado on the toast. With the high cost of goods I would rather pay more than have less quality. I might go for dinner at some point but not sure after this experience

    Our third or fourth visit and disappointing -- drinks were very slow to arrive (both rounds) and server ordered wrong dish for one of us. But they brought the correct dish as quickly as they could and apologized profusely. Wines are expensive by the glass but good quality stuff. This is a nice restaurant, great decor and ambiance, not inexpensive, but we were dismayed by the fact that some diners were VERY casually dressed and there were several toddler-age children in the dining room on a Friday night. Didn't feel like an adult night out to us.

    We had the sea bass, salmon, filet and short rib. All were very good. The beet salad was also very good. The food was served quickly but we were allowed as much time as we wanted to dine. The service was attentive but not too much. The ambiance was very nice with an urban, hip feel.

    We were in town for a golf event and found this restaurant on Open Table. We were delighted with the decor, ambiance, service and food. The group’s favorites were: Buffalo cauliflower and Peruvian shrimp for starters. The beet salad, short ribs and filet mignon were scrumptious. For dessert their banana split version was delicious, great balance of tart and sweet, the upside down pineapple cake was great too. Drinks were strong and service was on point! Our big party enjoyed everything they had.
