Food was very good but pricey. It would be nice to have a steak that was $20 or less. Table was a bit sticky but otherwise the service was great.

I enjoy going to wildfire for many reasons, but the number one reason I go is their friendliness toward my gluten free diet. It's a restaurant that makes me feel included even though I'm gluten free. Why? When warm bread is served pre meal, I'm not left out. Gluten free people get in on warm bread too with their own warm roll. The menu isn't just a small short list of gluten free options. It is a large menu with more than a handful of dishes. I had a difficult time picking my meal because I for once, I actually had two pages of choices. It was fantastic! I will be going back again to taste something else on the gluten free menu. It is amazing for me, to be able to go out to dinner and know that I won't be crossing my fingers that I will be able to find something on the menu that's gluten free. It's also reassuring that the staff is understanding and knowledgeable of my eating restrictions.

My friends and I love Wildfire before or after getting together for a movie. We had the very best waiter. My pizza was once again just so, so. My salad was wonderful. The appetizers are great!

I just wish Wildfire and most other restaurants would have real 100% olive oil available. The fact is they thin it with canola oil. Most people with digestive sensitivities don't tolerate it well.

All in all, Wildfire is almost always a nice dining experience!

Bread was terrible, mushy stuff--gave a negative initial impression (and that silly huge knife for that mush?) Entrees were good; the broccoli and roasted veg sides were negligible.

We like to treat ourselves to a steak on special occasions here. I’ve always loved my food. The wait staff are wondeful. The only thing I would change is the proximity of the tables. It seems they want to cram as many people as they can into too little space. When walking in and out many times you have to wait until someone who is coming toward you passes by before you can proceed. The waiters can barely get around tables without bumping into the diners. I always feel like they could take out a few tables and it would be perfect. That’s all.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very pleasant. It had dim lights and great ambiance. The service was great but for the price, the food really wasn't worth it. With all of the other steak houses out there, this one has a good feel but my husband I won't go back. We have had better quality steaks and prime-rib at Outback for half the price. It's a shame because we were really impressed with the atmosphere and service. If we were going to give this restaurant another shot, neither of us would order steak or prime-rib. Which is unfortunate because I believe that is the specialty.

Wildfire does a wonderful job with Gluten free. Our waiter Jeremy was outstanding!!!! Even with how busy the restaurant was that evening we never felt ignored. My daughter has Celiacs and Jeremy went above and beyond to ensure the food we ordered was Gluten free and prepared as we requested. He took extra time to research our questions and show us our options. The food was very good and we had a very nice evening, despite the wait and crowd. Thanks!

Has gone way downhill. Would not go back.

I used to love the chopped salad and it used to be very large with tons of ingredients in the bowl. Ours came and our server would not let us serve ourselves (even when we asked). The first two plates he served were lettuce and chips. No corn, avocado, tomatoes etc. he realized eventually there was no chicken and brought it in a dish on the side. It looked disgusting. They used to set the bowl in the middle of the table w extras. There were no extras. I did not enjoy my salad of lettuce and chips.

The rest of my meal was buttery and salty. Waiter rushed through.

The food at Wildfire is very good. What isn't is how they constantly "push" you to eat and leave. We hadn't taken our coats off when the waiter showed up and immediately wanted to know what we wanted to eat! We hadn't even looked at the wine list! He was all business - like on a mission - hurry up, eat and let me turn this table to make more money. Must be the way Lettuce Entertain You wants to operate these days.

Food quality was very good...but...as soon as you put your fork down for the last bite, someone was there to take away your plate, even if the others in your party are still eating.

We were there on a Friday night. The place was packed, it is loud, so don't plan on having a meaningful conversation unless you speak up to the person next to you.

I think there are better options nearby where the quality of the food is just as good, but you feel like a valued customer - not just another meal ticket for the restaurant to push through. I don't have a burning desire to head back to Wildfire anytime too soon.

Live in the neighborhood and often eat at Wildfire. Last time for a birthday celebration. Sat in the Martini Lounge as we were there for just drinks and appetizers. Great drinks, food, and our server was perfect. Can't wait to go again.

We've been to Wildfire lots of times. It's always "good" food, but for the price, it really should be excellent food that sets itself apart from many of the other restaurants in the area. Frankly, it doesn't. Most likely the last time, we will drop that kind of money for some food that is rather unexceptional.

Our waiter Rick was amazing. From the moment he first came to our table it was obvious that he was going to make this birthday dinner special. He was attentive to our needs and checked back in us throughout the dinner. The food was great as always. Salad, steak, potatoes, broccoli. And the bread. I hate filling up on bread but it's so good. Oh and the Stormy Night is always a great drink. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Fabulous birthday celebration with family in the Viking Room! Excellent service and delicious food. This location I always consistent with the quality and presentation of the food and this keeps us coming back.
Our steak, chops, chicken and seafood entrees were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Amazing signature chopped salad was served up at the table by our wonderful server. The birthday brownie was decadent!
Thank you for making our night so special!

Wildfire is our family's go-to restaurant for special occasions. Everyone has their favorite item on the menu and everything is prepared very well. It can be rather loud because the set-up is kind of like a large dining hall with tables situated rather close together.
