Great seafood in a coastal community like Mendocino shouldn't be hard to find, but in our experience it has been. Finally a place that does it right! Impeccably prepared, locally sourced fish, cozy small dining room with nice jazz in the background, warm and and attentive service...This place goes right to the top of our list.

Don't pass this tiny jem by! The food was fresh and delicious and creative. I had the bouillabaisse and it was FULL of sea food and the broth was the best ever. The rest of the table gave their meals glowing reviews as well. Amanda, our hostess, was fantastic! She was funny and accommodating and very sweet to us!! The... More

Had a lovely dinner earlier this week to celebrate our anniversary. The menu is interesting and changes regularly based on the latest catch. We had the mushroom appetizer, the ling cod, and the sable fish, with the kaffir/lemongrass creme brulee for dessert. Everything was super super fresh and enjoyable. Portions were a tad on the small size, but not overly... More

There are not many lunch options in Mendocino County. You don't need many when you have Wild Fish. We watched them deliver the rock cod and the crab. Fresh. The vegetables looks as if they came from out back. Tiny place that packs a punch. The menu is limited but everything is good. Fairly priced local wines and good desserts... More

Excellent food and great wine list. Do call ahead as it is very small, limited seating so one needs a reservation. Food is great, especially local caught seafood.

Wild fish has unbelievably good seafood. I had bouillabaisse that was truly wonderful. My husband had fresh wild mushroom soup that was also outstanding and a perfect ahi tuna dinner. This is a very small restaurant, seating for about 26. It is in a gas station building! Reservations are a must. We saw several people being turned away while we... More

Having heard great things about this restaurant in San Francisco, we decided to have lunch here on a drive up the coast. Came all the way from Sonoma and arrived at about 1:55. Having checked that they were open until 2:30 we thought we would be ok. Went in and then waited for over 5 minutes to be seen by... More

Very small place with gorgeous ocean view. Need a reservation to be seated. Great selection of wines. Kind of expensive, but food is delicious.

Had a marvelous lunch here - more affordable and less crowded than at dinner, plus you get to see the views. This is a small, intimate restaurant, with excellent service and food, sourced locally.
