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.

My wife and I have dined at Wildfire many times over the years, before and during the pandemic, inside, outside and delivery. Always excellent food, always top notch service (Mary Ann on this trip) and providing great care to create a safe as well as pleasant environment. We shared the relatively huge side Caesar as always. My wife had the filet trio for the first time, and really enjoyed it; also a lot of food! I had the filet Wellington, which I have never had before, and it was incredibly wonderful: a mushroom stuffing replaced the usual pate, but it didn’t suffer; the meat was delicious and the sauce intriguing. I would get the dish every time it is offered. Wines are only bargains on Wednesdays, and overall prices are moderately expensive but worth every penny. It was very comfortable eating outside with the large propane heaters on a 50 degree night; not sure how cold it could get and still be acceptable. Hopefully restrictions will be lifted before it gets frigid. We’d love to return soon.

Very unpleasant experience. Service staff not attentive during outside dining. There was a table of 60-70 year old “regulars” who requested a heat lamp from my table. I asked for 15 minutes for them to bring it back as I think there should be one heat lamp per table and there shouldn’t be favoritism. They brought the heat lamp in between the two tables but a minute later it was by their table again. Just because “Karen” is a regular I shouldn’t be dismissed. The server never came by again and asked if I needed another drink. Just rude throughout. They also touched my forehead with the touch less thermometer during check in. Food was just OK. Cold after 5 minutes. Maybe bring it out on a hot plate or think of something to keep it warm during COVID.

All outdoor seating it was weird to see no tables indoor but the weather was perfect for outdoor. Service was a bit slower than usual but acceptable understanding the setup was not ideal. The food was to die for - highly recommend the filet Wellington on Friday and Saturday - that will become my new go-to meal!

Considering the unusual circumstances we are operating under, the experience was fine. My biggest complaint was that my steak was cold. It was like it had been taken off the grill and sat for a while. Also I asked for it au poivre and they forgot to do that.

Love the food but the service was a bit off this time. It took 15 minutes before we asked to hostess to find a service person for us. Very unusual for Wildfire.

The outdoor dining experience was perfect for us. The wait staff seems to struggle managing the far away tables though. Lights from cars in the parking lot can be a little annoying, but the amazing food makes up for it.

The outdoor patio is lovely. Tables seemed appropriately spaced. Temperatures are taken before you are seated. It was very pleasant the night we were there so we didn't need a heater, but if we had I'm not sure there were enough for every table. It's sad to think we are coming close to the end of outdoor eating. The planked salmon was outstanding!

A wonderful outside dinner and a special night. Wildfire has positioned tables to help cut down traffic noise from Lake Avenue. Food was good except the prime rib was a little tough. But the Macadamia crusted fish was superb!

We tried the Greek chicken Wednesday night special. It was delicious. Garlicky and lemony. The roasted potatoes were also very good. In fact, I wish there were more on the plate.

While I enjoyed the meal, it really was too cold for outdoor dining. We ended up having to get the entrees to go.

We dined on the outdoor patio. The staff was attentive, and the food was great, as always! We love the Wildfire Chopped Salad. They have lots of patio heaters. Music from the restaurant plays through rock speakers next to the patio. It was a very pleasant evening.

Parking was easy, huge lot. We were greeted warmly and got our temp check. Seated in a booth facing the kitchen which was kinda nice to see the entire thing. Our server was very courteous and attentive. Food was great: i fried fresh calamari which was delicious, right amount if seasoning and cooked perfectly. I ordered the 16oz Prime Rib with roasted vegetables. I asked for medium rare plus and it came more red than I anticipated but still tasted great. My husband ordered the bison meatballs, horseradish crusted Filet mignon and he loved it too! For his birthday, our waiter brought him molten fudge. I got the apple strudel with vanilla ice cream. The apple was a little sour for my taste but it was very well complimented by the ice cream.
