A word from Wildfire - Tysons Galleria
Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. Step into Wildfire, a steak and chophouse with the aura of a 1940's dinner club. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. So order a martini, listen to the music and prepare your appetite for some of the most delicious American cuisine you'll find anywhere.

    I have been to Wildfire several times on business or with another couple. I usually sit in a booth (have dined in the private rooms as well). However, this time, they put our family in possibly the worst table in the restaurant. They sat us at a table with chipped wood up at the front corner of the restaurant facing the mall next to a waiter stand. Very strange given we had a 6pm reservation and the restaurant was not full. I wonder if they did this since we brought our kids but it was a terrible experience and may not return. If you bring your kids be aware that this may happen to you. The hostess seems to like to dump families and the bad tables.

    We struggle to find restaurants with great steaks that also have a host of other options. This was exactly what we were looking for! My husband had prime rib which he said was outstanding. I had the halibut special which was delicious and a surprisingly large portion. We will absolutely return and would recommend this in a heartbeat! The ambiance, service, food, beverages...made this a wonderful birthday celebration!

    Service started off kind of slow. Once we got seated, nobody came to our table for about 10-15 minutes. Once the waitress came to take our order, she appologized and the service was amazing from that point on. Unexpectedly, the manager came by to apologize for the slow service. Interesting that it was slow when I had a 5:30pm reservation, but nevertheless, the food came out great and our waitress was wonderful.

    My husband and I have been to Wildfire's several times before this weekend. We enjoy the food, ambiance, attention to detail by the wait staff, and drinks. My husband ordered a wonderful martini and I just had a house Pinot Grigio. My husband had the prime rib and I had a black bean burger-both were very good. We enjoy coming to Wildfire's when we get the chance.

    The restaurant is convenient and the atmosphere is nice. The food was good but not great. A bit overpriced. I guess we were expecting the meats (rib eye & lamb) to have more flavor. But I would return for lunch to try other items but since it was my boyfriends bday we went the romantic route.

    Went for brunch with family on Sunday, as we have loved the Wildfire brunches in the past! Unfortunately, there were some menu modifications (the smoked salmon platter is no longer on the menu, and that was one of our favorites!), and even more unfortunately, our waitress was unable to speak to the brunch menu at all (when we asked her about the brunch special, she obviously made something up after hemming/hawing for a few seconds). To quote her, "I don't work brunches." This being a waitress who was serving at 11:00 AM on a Sunday ... We won't let one strike ruin our past experiences, but it was severely disappointing.

    The food is always great. It was delicious the evening we went to celebrate my brother's birthday. However, there are so many tables in that restaurant that you can't walk through it at all comfortably. It's usually packed Saturdays but waparticularly so that nite. Their service personnel are always wonderful. However, this particular night our service person was less than attentive and very aloof. We had not complained about anything so maybe she had a personal issue. We talked about it being my brother's birthday but maybe she did not hear us since it was noisy. But we were stunned when she brought our bill as soon as our plates were removed. We had intended to have dessert but she never asked. That's never happened. We just left

    Great Service and great food. We were a group of 7. The server was pleasant and knowledgeable about the food. The food arrived in a very reasonable amount of time. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious. The cornbread is the best I ever tasted. I had crab cakes and they were fabulous. We will definitely return.

    Great ambiance - but I got the Buffalo Chicken sandwich, and granted that is likely not the chef's pride, but it was overdone and the fries were also over cooked. Perhaps they put more attention to the fish or other main dishes - but to me, if you can't get the simple things right, there are plenty or restaurants that can. I chose the restaurant for a business lunch meeting and it was a great choice for that - service was excellent, so I'd give it another try.

    I challenge all my friends to compare Wildfire steaks with their favorite steak places and almost always, money to steak, Wildfire wins hands down. I have friends who also come here for the chicken and tuna, but for me, there is no better place in the DC area (for the money) to get a steak. I recommend the ribeye and try one of their crusts. This visit was no exception. It was the quietest I've ever seen it which was a nice bonus. Food was spot on, waitress was very attentive, and we didn't have to send any of the food back. I'm from Chicago and this is by far one of Chicago's best exports to this area. Don't miss it.

    Wildfire Tyson's Corner is one of our go to places for a reliable experience. Unfortunately, our last visit on August 31 was a huge disappointment. The food was good but the service was abysmal. The young lady serving us did not have a clue about good service (e.g., yelling at a colleague while serving us salad is just not done). I will go again and see if this was a one time thing.

    I love asking employees what is their favorite dish. If someone gushes over something, that’s what I’m going to try. That happened here. The server told us about the baked and crusted halibut that was so good that people call ahead to see when halibut is in season. Let me tell you, the dish and the server did not disappoint -- by far, the best halibut I’ve ever had, and as a pescetarian, that says a lot!

    We had the petite filet, filet, and salmon with potato sides - all were very good. Downsides were that we had to send one petite filet back because they had butterflied it and the service was somewhat slow - maybe because it was a Saturday night. All in all I would definitely go there again. Its mall location is not glamorous, but does make it easy to park.

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Wildfire was a favorite of ours so we decided to go there for my son's and my birthday...same day. Noted this in the open table reservation. The waiter completely forgot about it or didn't read the profile notes. The manager checked and it was in there. So, this is not the first time that Wildfire has forgotten something in our profile notes and have had to let the manager know. The problem is that the Wildfire doesn't seem to learn what it can do differently next time. Bad service cannot be dismissed by the gift coupon...time to find a different steak place in Tysons...there are many! As always, the food was awesome but diminished by the two forgotten birthdays and a resulting crappy experience..again..at Wildfire
