Step back in time to 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.

Had a wonderful Valentine's Day set menu. All the food was perfectly prepared and our server was impeccable. Glad I chose to dine here tonight. We'll definitely consider going back here for other special occasions.

The bread choice sucks for an upper scale restaurant. Cornbread? I expect that at a bbq restaurant! Onion rolls?! I don't do onion. How about a crunchy crusted frenchbread or the pumpernickel that was always provided.
A ceasar salad at a nicer restaurant should be provided with real shaved parmesan not the fine powdered cheese.
Wildfire is not all that anymore.

It was the day before Valentine's Day and the place was busy with an 1.5 hr wait without a reservation but I felt like the servers were picking up my salad while I was still eating and setting down my entree.

Our service was ok, but the food was awful. Fish had bones in it, potatoes were undercooked (but an up-charge) and salad was wilted. Sad because this used to be one of our fav places to go.

Everything at Wildfire is always perfect. My family and I have been here multiple times and never have any issues. If you like Martinis, get the Dark and Stormy (you won’t regret it). The crab cakes are delicious and my steak is always cooked perfect. Can’t wait till next time!!!

Love the food and the service. It's a little noisy, hard to hear across the booth or around the table. Also pricey. But would rather pay for good food than spend money on so so.

Expected better - mistakes were made and quickly corrected but still too many for an established restaurant with the prices they charge. Should have been a bit more attentive and flawless with drinks and service. Food was good.

I initially had no reservation when we arrived, The receptionist was rude to us and since the restaurant was busy , she mentioned that there’s a waiting list for 1hr 15 mins. So I tried to check on open table and I found a spot, reserved it and got confirmation and when I went back to her, she insisted that the reservation is not confirmed ‘ bec she didn’t confirm it’ and asked me if I wanted to speak to manager, which I did.
The manager was very decent and cooperative and confirmed that I had a reservation on open table, and seated us right away!

Open table you saved our Sunday evening!

Wildfire has always been great. This time that we have gone, service was not as great as it is. Glasses were all filthy. It took 3 times to get not a gross one. Over all food was great as always.

We were celebrating a birthday, the wait staff is excellent, the food is good, but not hot. I specifically told my server that the last time we were at Wildfire the food wasn’t hot and to make sure it came hot, the food was warm. We give up, it will a long time before we go back to Wildfire.

My fish was so salty I couldn’t eat it not once did the waiter come and ask if everything was ok with our food and when the waiter came to take our plates away he asked if I wanted it wrapped and I said no it was so salty I couldn’t eat it and said nothing took the plate away and made sure to charge us for it... Was so disappointed in our dinner we do not get to go out often...

My husband's prime rib was great. I had the Sunday Turkey dinner special. The meat was disappointing. The sides were good. The price was reasonable about wasn't a big deal, but I would never order the turkey again.

Nice dinner after the theatre. My spinach/kale salad with salmon was excellent and had enough for lunch the next day. My husband really liked his horseradish encrusted steak...cooked perfectly. Each had a nice glass of wine with dinner. Good attentive service.

I asked waitress for a dry buttery white wine- she served me this sweet sweet white wine. I didn’t say anything cause I don’t like yo explain. Orders the Parmesan crusted cod- excellent but my friend and I had the same thing and both green beans we weren’t able to eat- discolored stringy. Awful very didappointed. We had brought them as guests. Embarrassing I usually don’t explain

EXTREMELY BUSY, CROWDED AND LOUD. COULD NOT HAVE A CONVERSATION WITHOUT ASKING "WHAT" SEVERAL TIMES. LOVED THE FOOD AND SERVICE BUT THE NOISE LEVEL WAS TROUBLESOME. ALSO, THE LOBBY AREA SHOULD BE LARGER TO ACCOMMODATE THE WAITING DINERS. THERE IS NO PLACE TO WAIT AND THE BAR IS WAY TOO SMALL FOR THIS. I WILL NEVER BOOK THIS PLACE ON A SATURDAY AGAIN. LOVE IT, BUT IT MAKES FOR AN UNCOMFORTABLE ATMOSPHERE, RATHER THAN AN ENJOYABLE RELAXING DINNER.

Wildfire is one of my favorite restaurants for an evening out in the area. My family was visiting from out of town this weekend and this is my place to take them. This was the first time that I brought my father, who has a range of special dietary restrictions including gluten free and dairy free. I was impressed to find out that most of their meals could be prepared with these diets in mind and for once Dad didn’t feel like he could just “order a salad”, he had an entire menu that fit his needs! This is the first time in years that I have taken him out and he didn’t feel like he was dragged down by his diet. It can be loud when busy but the ambiance is generally good for family. Pricey but portions are abundant and every time I have left a satisfied customer.

WF continues to be a very reliable choice for a very good, if not unique meal. Our reservation was honored within 10 minutes of arriving, the service was attentive, you are far enough from the other tables that it does not feel invasive and the food was good as expected and all 4 of us had different entres.

Celebrating our daughter-in-law’s birthday. Very good dinner as always. We did have some small children at an adjoining table that didn’t quite go with the crowd. And that is something that restaurant staff have no control over.
