  • Too bad about the service

    The food was amazing but the poor service ruined our experience. After taking our order, not once did the server make his own way to our table. I had to flag him down, send other severs to find him and had to ask for salt and wine twice as he forgot (and promptly blamed his busser). Nothing ruins good food faster than poor service (conversely, great service can make mediocre food easier to swallow.

    It isn't cheap, but the ribs are great and the service tops. Menu has been changed - I miss some of the desserts (used to have a great red velvet cake and a terrific caramel/choc cheesecake brownie, but sadly, no more). The desserts don't match up to the previous ones, but are okay. I miss the hummus starters too...times are a changin', but as I said...the ribs - and the chicken - are great.

    Several hosts at door, welcoming. Learned there is a ramp to use if necessary so it is wheelchair accessible. Very busy restaurant and on the dark side so it is hard to read the menu (the phone flashlight comes in handy), the steak and chicken is excellent. The pasta primavera had very few vegetables. It was disappointing - lots of pasta, little veggies.

    The food was very good, the steak was particularly good. The were a lot of servers, but oddly the service was not great. They seemed disorganized and there were odd gaps in attendance. The funniest thing was at the end of the dinner when I ordered a blueberry tea, there were at least 8 dead fruit flies served in it! I told the waiter, he said "yeah, they love that stuff." Sure they replaced it, but in a place that dark, I could have easily missed it and been downing some fruit fly protein. In any case, while that was odd, the overall dinner was very nice and the ambience is excellent.

    This place had great service. Our server was attentive even though she had her hands full. She was very friendly, and was a great guide for the steak options. The filet mignon double wrapped with bacon was delicious. It was so soft and tender, and cooked to a perfect rare. It's also great that they offer complimentary butters to top off your steak. The blue cheese butter did not take away from the steak, and only added heavenly richness to the meal. Ambience was really nice. It was dim (good for romance), but not so dim that I couldn't see my partner's face. We sat in the booth, which was a little tight in space, but made a lot of sense when the food came; we didn't have to lean forward to eat.

    No real complaints overall and the flavor was great, but will note: Waiter had a nice sense of humor but could easily be misunderstood as edgy. Steak was prepared medium instead of medium well (honestly this happens too often other places as well). Manager was warm, cordial and knowledgeable about my Wifes allergy needs.

    My experience at wildfire was unforgettable. I had a groupon for the colborne location (I didn't realize its specific) and the lovely waiter Ryan and his manager Mateo allowed us to use it anyways. Parking was easily accessible across from the restaurant and upon entering the hostess opens the door for you! My husband is VERY Picky and thoroughly enjoyed his meal. The staff was excellent and made every effort to meet the needs of their customers. We had a couple next to us that made a big deal about their steak not being cooked the way they liked it and they took it right back and got her lamb instead!... Overall I would say it is a must eat. Oh they have the largest wine list I have ever seen AND they served my coca cola in a bottle GREAT!

    We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday at wildfire. It met my expectations and way beyond! We had finished our amazing dinner when our waiter brought us two glasses of champagne. We toasted to the birthday and then come dessert with a sparkler in his dessert and happy birthday written on his plate. Pictures were taken and then the waiter gave my husband a birthday CARD wishing him a happy birthday from all of the staff. It was just the most magical evening and I thank the staff of wildfire for making it so special. We will remember the evening for years to come.

    Good food and great service, but the decor was old and dated...including the furniture. The table was cracked and scratched all over. The ceiling was falling off at a few places and had water leak marks. The fake flowers on the wall had never been cleaned...it was that obvious. Our server, on the other hand, was awesome. Even though we got a very tight spot upstairs next to the huge curtains right on us, the server was quick with food and one line jokes to make it OK. Kudos to the chef for good food! Kudos to the server and the other staff for awesome service! Zero for the resturatant itselft...not worth the money! -

    My husband and I were visiting Toronto for the weekend and sort of stumbled on Wildfire via the Summerlicious website. What a great find! We had a lobster appetizer, and I had a lobster entree. It was wonderful. We really liked the ambiance of the restaurant, and the service was excellent. We'd definitely go back.

    This was my second Summerlicious experience at Wildfire Steakhouse, and it was a great EXPERINCE. The food is not only flavourful, but plated beautifully. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food and a romantic atmosphere. I ordered the Mahi Mahi, and my boyfriend ordered the Steak, and they were both satisfying portions.

    It was our first time here. Our table was booked for 6:30pm. We loved the atmosphere, deco, friendly hostesses. Food was amazing, especially the lobsters. We love the Summerlicious menu. That's what got us introduced to your restaurant. The only thing didn't fit in, was our waiter's mood. Maybe he didn't have a good day. He was very moody, quick in acting, no friendly smile like the rest of the staff, sometime we felt like we weren't really welcomed there for some reason. Overall we might come back to your restaurant. We hope to get another waiter though if we do.

    I was asking my server to refill water for 2 times, and waiting for him at least 20 mins, then the glass in front of me was still remaining empty. I know the restruant was busy, but how hard can it be? At last, I asked a guy who looks like manager to refill water for me, and the issue was solved immediately, that is why I mark one star in service section above. Final conclusion, good food, good ambience, poor service quality for just one servers…

    Went to eat for Summerlicious because regularly the prices are a bit too out of the budget. I have to say for such a fancy place they are family friendly, fast and the staff was just amazing so friendly! We definitely will be coming back again! Their wine list goes on for pages bottles from $40 to $3000. Reservations were for 5:30 We felt welcomed when our table was already set with a high chair like we mentioned in the reservation. I started with a hibiscus champagne cocktail and he had a pint of creemore. Then we ordered a bottle of wine which went well our new york striploin and garlic mash Will recommend Wildfire to our friends.

    We went there for a Summerlicious dinner ($45 per person). The server was really nice to us! The dishes, including the appetizer, were huge! I was half-full after I finished my butternut squash soup. For the main course, the mushroom risotto that I ordered (I am a vegetarian) was not so tasty. The rice was rather grainy and I would prefer the dish to be a bit more salty. The dessert (creme brulee) was great though!

    We usually love dining here but this time our server made it not so great for us. He just didn't pay us any attention, in terms of checking on us, filling the water. He gave us 20 minutes before we could order. Our appetizer came out right away but the main took awhile. Not sure if the timing was due to us arriving at 5pm and maybe thats when the kitchen opened. We would definitely come to the restaurant again. But may seek another server that we had in the past. He seemed rude and snooty, maybe because we weren't ordering wine and were doing the summerlicious menu. But all other service people at the restaurant was great. The door was opened for us, People led us to our table. Warm and friend other staff. Just not our server.

    Haven't been to Wildfire for many years. It hasn't changed ( for the better). I travel globally and eat at many fine restaurants. I was dining with my 17 year old son this was what might be considered a special evening out. We were not asked where we might like to sit. It was early and the restaurant empty and were seated at a booth hidden in the back. Our server was a veteran waiter abrupt and unengaging. I think he was disappointed we were not ordering Penfold's Grange. My carnivore son said his steak was fatty. My chicken piri piri was very ordinary. My son has eaten steak at some of the best. He was shocked his steak was $56 and said I make a better steak and named 3 other restaurants we had eaten at with better steak.

    We chose this restaurant to the location, and the menu offerings viewed on line. Although I did check some online reviews, a few indicated very slow service. We found the same. Slow to get our drink orders, horribly slow - and disengaged with the customers - we had to call the waiter to take our order - and the bill. Not a busy night-It was Monday. Food was ok, but certainly not worth what we paid - and we were prepared to pay - we did order a $180 bottle of wine. Service was such a shame - they could have sold us at least 1 more bottle - but chose to put our caraffe on another table, well out of reach-did I mention the horribly slow service? Pay attention to your customers - your bottom line will improve. Good luck, we won't be back.

    My hubby had steak and I had the back ribs. I did find the back ribs a bit too saucy, and will ask for less sauce in the future. But the meat was melting off the bone, very succulent and tasty. My hubby enjoyed his steak. It was cooked perfectly, medium rare, just as he asked. Juicy and delicious. The wine recommended by the hostess was good too.

    My husband and I took my parents this past weekend for dinner using a Groupon voucher. The food is very good but unfortunately the service did not match. Our waiter Roman seemed annoyed by our voucher and dedicated more time and attention to the tables ordering off the main menu. Since we were using the voucher this allowed us to spend more money on drinks, if they had been offered. Having to wait 40 minutes for our bill while the table beside us saw our waiter every five minutes is unacceptable. My husband and I used to frequent this restaurant a lot but once again we have been reminded why we stopped.

  • Fathers Day Dinner with the Family

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    The event was a family gathering for fathers day although I have been here twice before. Each time I found the restaurant to be dependable, the food and service are both good but the service could improve. Ambiance was good, busy enough but not crowded. Parking is the usual with a Yonge street address, sometimes challenging. We had a range of ages from children to seniors, and everyone found something that appealed to them, so the menu range is broad. Earning praise was the ribs, the Piri Chicken, the Filet Mignon, the wild mushroom soup and crab cakes appetizer. On the downside, the Australian fish dish the Barramundi could have been better. It may be just a little pricey for its offering. Extensive wine list, but again a little pricey.

    This time was a special occasion, a birthday celebration and I had entered that information as well as asked online if there was special dessert for the birthday person. As we were escorted to our seats I told the hostess it was a birthday celebration and would the waiter know. She advised me that if I had indicated that on my reservation he would know. We were waiting, and waiting and eventually had to order our own desserts and did without a birthday dessert for the birthday girl. So much for that surprise dessert. Upon leaving I mentioned this to the hostess who apologized but beyond that didn't seem to know what to do.

    We have been to this restaurant a few times in the past few years for special occasions and the food portions are good, great wine selections. However, the service was not as good as in the past. We didn't get served any water and the a few of the staff were not very friendly. The plates are nice and hot, good portions but a bit salty.
