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.

Server was spectacular. We took my mom for her 95th birthday. The food was very good and they accommodated my moms needs. We had a wonderful time.

Catching up with a colleague over lunch before the holidays. I had cedar planked salmon, she had a salad. Both delivered in a timely manner and cleared once we were done.
The staff was patient as we talked for a good while past the table being cleared.

Wildfire has outstanding food at fairly high prices. We continue to come back because we've never had a bad meal there. Our waiter on this visit was far less attentive than what we've come to expect at Wildfire. It seemed like he was new and had too many tables to manage.

We asked for a quiet table & the girl at the desk had to get someone to assist. The gentleman came to the desk said it was no problem. When our entire party arrived, the girl at the desk had no idea what to do & had to get the gentleman again. Our waiter took a drink order, forgot 2 of 4 drinks. He never asked if he could get us anything to drink after that. Our food was placed in one carry out bag at the end of the meal. Problem was that 3 people in different households had the food in one bag, combined containers. He didn’t ask if dinner was ok, never offered dessert.

I love Wildfire and go to the one downtown all the time. I tend to order the same thing every time. They have the BEST lemon peppered chicken but the Lincolnshire restaurant always has the chicken coming out dry and not very appetizing unlike the downtown restaurant where it is juicy and delicious every time I go.. DISAPPOINTED on both occasions I have been there..

I have worked in hospitality for over ten years in Florida between Universal Studios and Walt Disney Resorts. 10/10 Wildfire. Amazing staff. Friendly greeting and enthusiasm. Polite, well spoken, attentive and outstanding guest service. The servers made eye contact, smiled and were knowledgeable. Carlos was our server for the evening. Seemed soft spoken however he was attentive, had multiple suggestions, and was able to answer any question I gave him. He was friendly yet professional. The server assistants were preemptive and the food runners were on point. While observing the floor and traffic, the team had great communication AND execution. Overall great environment, great staff and amazing food.

Unusually poor tonight compared to every other time we have been there. They didn’t have everything we ordered, then mixed up what they told us they had with what they didn’t have. Slow service, cold food, wrong potatoes, missing extras like butter and brown sugar ( which first came out hard like a rock), etc. We were offered a dessert to take home, but this was the first time we were ever disappointed in a meal there, and we have been going there for years.

Prime rib was slightly over cooked. Salad was a bit watery. Seating immediately adjacent to the busy swinging door kitchen entry for a 2 person birthday dinner with a reservation was very disappointing. Unlikely to go again for a Friday or Saturday night......
