    Came to WildCraft for my birthday dinner after it was recommended to me. Our first server was not remarkably amicable, but her trainee was very. Ordered the braised pork belly bao, which was ok. The aoli sauce was very good but the meat itself was subpar. I understand that pork belly is generally pretty fatty but 3/4 of the bao contained 0% meat and 100% fat. On the plus side, the fries were amazing and good company made up for the ok meal :) I also really appreciate the complimentary birthday dessert! Overall, I would be willing to give this place another chance.

    We were greeted promptly by two very friendly hosts. Ava was our server, she was very knowledgeable with the menu and wine selections. We ordered the baked cheese dip duo, seared sea scallop and prawn risotto, southwestern short rib bowl. I would highly recommend all three to anyone who asks. The atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxing. Highly recommend as a must try if you haven’t.

    I have been to Wildcraft several times and usually the experience is great but this time we were seated at a table that was too low and not appropriate for dining. The food was good on the whole but one item was burnt and should have been replaced

    First time there. Ordered the beet salad to share. Was great tasting and good portion. Pre-dinner drinks (Caeser and Margarita) very good. I had steak frites which was good portions just not a lot of flavour. Good chimmichurri sauce though. My wife had seafood risotto. Very tasty just not a lot of seafood in it. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and our server Ben recognized it with a champagne/Prosecco toast. Very thoughtful. We will go back and try something different and ask for Ben to be our server.

    Celebrating our Anniversary. Our server Ava was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu items and efficient! She made our evening a pleasant one. Food was very good. Really enjoyed the tempura shrimp and loved that they wrapped the lemon half in cheesecloth to keep the seeds out of our dish! I ordered the beef dip sandwich The beef was tender but there was way too much bread to beef. I just ditched the bread and enjoyed the rest. I really had wanted a piece of grilled or baked salmon but that is no longer on the menu. My husband had the beef short ribs which he declared delicious. Our complimentary dessert was a lovely bonus and we paired it with cappucino. Again, our server Ava was the one who put the experience into the upper level for us.

    All interactions with hosts and servers were lovely. Gracious and warm staff. Food was delicious - especially the flatbread! Unfortunately we were looking for a patio evening meal and were told the heat lamps would be on or could go on later if it became cold. (Were told yes.) It was warm when we first arrived but when it grew darker and the lamps weren't on, we asked for them to be turned on and were told none of the lamps were working, even those by the outdoor bar - at which point moving inside was the only option rather than patio dining.

    The food was good and the service was great. We asked for 2 W burgers and one was with no tomatoes and they made a point of asking who got the one with no tomatoes when they brought the food to the table only to have both with tomatoes. Feel that at this level of restaurant something so little as no tomatoes on a burger should be easy to deliver on. I gave 4 stars for overall and value because of this. Overall staff was very attentive with various people including managers bringing our food. Our waitress was really good. I would go back again.

    The table we were sat at seemed like an afterthought. It was a table right beside the door to the patio. It seemed like they were trying to just squeeze one more table in there. With the door to the patio continuously opening and closing, we were definitely cold. Yes it's a nice day but the wind is still cold, and with that, things were blowing around our table the entire time. We also didn't really have a server. Two different people 'helped' us in the beginning and said your server will be back. No one came and I was looking around, someone walked up and so it seemed like perhaps a supervisor took our order. After receiving our food, one thing was forgotten, I asked another person to grab that for us when they walked by. When Nya cleared our table at the end she said "I'm your server now".... okay, but the meal is over? Just a super weird experience. The food was decent, however the experience was lacking. I booked here almost a week in advance for Mother's Day. It didn't seem too busy when we were there so I'm not sure why we were forgotten. Happy Mother's Day mom! Lol
