Step back in time when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Delicious gluten free options and allergy friendly. We sat outside and the ambience was very nice. Shades blocked the direct sun rays as evening approached. Staff is friendly and responsive.

Patio dining was extremely uncomfortable. No shade from the sun and service was overwhelmed. Very disappointing experience for a special occasion.

The chicken I ordered was terrible! No seasoning and it was undercooked. I had mashed potatoes that had no flavor and a cold bowl of spinach that was not good at all. I had high expectations for this restaurant and i have to say i was extremely disappointed

Our service was not engaging at all!! We sat for maybe 10mins before we were offered drinks, when we gave our drink orders he never asked if we wanted appetizers. When we did finally order appetizers it then took maybe 20 mins before we ordered our entree. We wanted to see if we were the only ones he treated that way and No we weren’t. Next time I go I was be sure to ask not to be seated in his section.

As a frequent visitor to Wildfire, I was taken back by the overall quality of food. It was way better before Covid. The NY Strip was just “okay”. They still don’t have a full menu which I don’t understand. The server was fantastic as always.

We went to celebrate my son's birthday. Always enjoyed Wildfire. We go to the one downtown every year (except 2020) for Valentine's day. Everything was great, desserts were ok, my son was wanting the cookie with ice cream.
His chocolate cake was very good! Our waiter was so nice. The restaurant was very busy, you'd think it was a Saturday night. But that didn't affect the service.
The one thing was the 3% COVID charge, you can remove it. It was fine, but then make sure things are clean. The bathroom was dirty, had lots of toilet paper on the floor and paper towels. The men's bathroom was the same. Glasses were a bit dirty and so was silverware. So if you are going to charge to have things "cleaner" just do it, so people don't think it's shady.

We have been going to wildfire for many years now. It is one of our favorite places to eat on our special occasions. I have been getting g the steak trio for years now and they have always been perfect. This time however the steaks were overcooked. Not just mine but my moms were also overcooked. This has never happened before. We should have sent them back but we did not. Our fault I know but probably won’t be going back for a while until they get their cooking staff back to normal. On a side note and to be fair, my sons steak and my friends prime rib were both cooked perfectly and were delicious.

First time back in a restaurant for quite awhile and was a little disappointed in the food and the service. Out of the five of us, three people found their food very dry. Service was a little slow. None of this is how I remembered Wildfire. On the plus side the cherry pie was fantastic!

We ordered steaks, but only us had no breads. Every tables surround us had bread, Except us.

And nobody gave us more water, even nobody asked.

Food is good! But service is bad.

We were very disappointed where they sat us , we were in a small room with 6 or 8 small tables and they put us in the corner. We asked for another spot and they said that’s all that they had … the food was good but the service and ambiance was very disappointing… I feel that I had a reservation and should have been seated in a better spot, I even had to put my credit card to reserve my table . I will not be back soon … thanks for reading my concerns.

Thanks,
Kris Hutter

The food, and service was excellent. I only hope in the future that the wine list would go more upscale to match the food.
