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.

Menu seems to have been reduced (for example no bernaise sauce for steaks). Quality ok but not over the top for the price.

The success of Wildfire has been it's ruin. Too busy, too loud, too rushed.
Long, long waits for waitress service and then she'd just do a "fly-by" in a rush.
Very disappointing service. Waitress is kept so busy with too many tables that she can't pay any attention to any one table.

We had 3 couples celebrating 2 guests’ birthdays and had a terrific evening. Our food was delicious and the service was excellent- our waiter Steven was attentive, efficient and thoughtful too. What a celebration!

Service is at best adequate. They should strive for more. Waiter drops off food and never comes back. Never asked if we wanted more than the tiny little dinner roll. They just exude a don’t care attitude

Disappointed that they no longer do cornbread. Instead they served onion rolls that were cold not even room temperature. The meal itself was fine. The noise level is still too high.

Nice place, great service, but it’s still restaurant where you should have decent meal, unfortunately that’s not the case.
“Chefs “should go through extensive training. Food was terrible, and I got sick from it.

It’s very strange to see so many positive reviews. Maybe it was a bad day.

Food was excellent and plentiful as always. Large portions and enough for leftovers. Only complaints were that the main entrees came too quickly—we were still eating our salad, a bit skimpy on the bread/rolls ( and no cornbread) and very noisy. There was a big party in our area and they were very loud.

Prime rib and creamed spinach were delicious. Crab cakes and salmon were under seasoned and fish was over cooked. Gnats kept flying around our table. Noise level is loud

Dan the server was great, the ambiance was great, as always, and the food was good, particularly the prime rib beef. But we were surprised, and somewhat chagrined to see some missing favorites on the menu. Of course the overall menu attrition is entirely understandable, but an unforgivable disappointment was that no longer is there the warm, yummy, delicious, melt in your mouth cornbread---a house made Wildfire signature standard that should have been the very last thing sacrificed in the challenge of this short staffed pandemic culture. The desire to dine at Wildfire is almost synonymous with a longing for that cornbread. We heard others at tables around us also asking about its absence. Please reconsider this decision

We had a woman with us, who was unbelievably rude. She made all 6 of us uncomfortable with her constant demands. Your waitstaff went out of their way in every way to meet her requests. I can't tell you how sorry I am that they had to put up with that woman. She left with her original dinner in hand and a bag of food in another(which I truly fully think that was her intention)from the beginning. I promise I will never have dinner with her again in your restaurant you run a first-class dining room you don't deserve such a stinker. Your people were saints . Thank you for the courtesy given to her and she truly did not merit it. Coreen Vicini

We sat outside on terrace on warm, muggy night.
Service was very poor - appear understaffed. Took forever to order, get meals, receive check.
Drinks were fine. However, the bison burgers had by 2 were barely cooked ( not medium as ordered). We didn’t dare send the burgers back because wait would have been interminable.

Very disappointing as we are normally fans of Wildfire

I have eaten at this restaurant for 20 + years and usually a great experience. Last night was an exception. Our server seemed very uninterested unattentive in our table of three, we had to look for him several times only to find him hanging out at the Bar. I asked for the Salmon to be medium instead of well-done and it came out almost burnt. I have had it several times and usually cooked perfect. The bread was ice cold. Silverware dirty and everything seemed tired. including the people working there. We called twice to get a reservation directly and were told no tables available so I went on open table and got a reservation right away and surprise! There were open tables everywhere. What is going on with this place? I hope it was a one time incident because this is a standard for my family and would hate for it to go bad.

We had children seated next to us who were NOT well behaved. I was worried that a waiter would be injuried with the kids running around their table, throwing napkins, and standing on their chairs. I was impressed on the patience of the staff but something should have been done for the rest of us in the area.

Prime rib very raw and more than 50% fat so laced through the meat that I had to carve my wife’s meat. Very hard to do with the dull steak knife provided. My steak added to the salad was overdone. Nearly never saw waiter, and the meal took so long my oxygen concentrator nearly ran down before we could get our key lime pie we’d ordered with the entrees. Very disappointing.
