We ordered the whole fish, and OH MY GOD one word "PHENOMENAL!" every bite I kept saying wow! From the presentation to the taste, cooked to perfection! Such a cute romantic restaurant.

Great seafood restaurant that specializes in local fish. The smoked fish chowder is great. Not as nice a location as it’s sister restaurant in Mendocino, but still wonderful food.


Food of the highest quality. I had the oysters followed by thw whole rock cod, washed down with a glass of Alvarinho. We had been to Mendocino before. Food every bit as good, with the added bonus of Jazz


The Ricotta salad was worth the trip, the rest of my meal paled in comparison. The salmon was nice, the bouillabaisse was not “amazing” but was good. Perhaps paired with wine it might have brought out something hiding in the flavor, but we are not drinking tonight. Our bill for a shared salad and two mains was $100. We enjoyed the atmosphere and live music on the patio. Definitely would return.


Nice ambiance. Great food and service! We had the Ricotta salad and fish and chips. Both very good. I recommend this place.


We had enjoyed the original Wild Fish Restaurant in Little River for many years. Unfortunately they closed last year and we decided that a special trip was due to get our fix of Kelvin & Liz's Pacific Grove location. We were not disappointed. Starting with the Sablefish collar, nice and crispy skin and luscious rich meat. The Salmon was prepared perfectly and the Ahi was beautifully presented. Closing with Sticky Toffee pudding and a nice glass of aged Port. Service was friendly and attentive. The vibe in the restaurant was different from the original but it is a larger facility and there is more going on. We will be back, now we get to explore the Monterey area in addition to Mendocino.

Had the whole fish and it was awesome! pricy but it's worth! Wine recommended by staff was really tasty! Desert perfect! Chocolate cake and toffee pudding!

Best fish dinner from a truly celiac friendly restaurant. The fish was amazing! Flavorful and moist. Salads were creative and flavors were wonderful. I am so used to asking what is gluten free and being told I had 2 options from the menu. Wile Fish was fantastic, down to their gluten free roll which was apparently better than the gluten sourdough option! We will be back. Love that everything was sustainable and you could see where your fish came from. Jazz band was an added plus!

I went to experience this restaurant for the first time (we heard great things) but was a bit disappointed. The restaurant was not busy nor at max capacity and we had to wait over 45 minutes for our food which was fish tacos and a tuna melt. Several couples came after us (and after we ordered) and they all received their food before us. When I inquired when our food was going to be coming out to us, I was first told that there was only one chef and then told that they were not sure when our ticket when into the system. I understand a wait if the Restaurant was packed or if the food came out to the people that were there before us but it was lunch time 2:05 pm when we placed our order and received the fish tacos and tuna melt at 2:50 pm after three couples got there food first and came after us. We never was offered bread, water or got the salad early that my mom ordered. The lack of care of their customer was so disappointing. We still gave the waiter a good tip just because it’s the right thing to do, but hope someone reads this that works there and will be mindful to customers when dinning there.


Sablefish was delicious. Asparagus underneath was overcooked. Mussels were great. Fried calamari was tasty and gluten-free. Arugula salad was fine. All appetizers were brought at the same time. Service was fine. Outdoor seating comfortable on a cool night. All in all, a good experience.


Wild fish is 5 star. The food is organic and fresh! They even post the captions names. The tartare and ketchup are made fresh. Christian did an outstanding job with service! The fish and chips are gluten free. I highly recommend Wild fish. The only problem is you will want to come daily??

Some of the best seafood I've ever had. Came in for dinner while staying in Monterrey and was very pleasantly surprised. The calamari was so flavorful. The sablefish dish came on a bed of vegetables that was just amazing. Outdoor seating and staff were also good. Good experience.
