Step back in time 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.

Have been wanting to try this place for some time and was utterly disappointed. My bacon wrapped scallops were the best thing of the meal. My husband’s bisque and coconut shrimp were just ok and the broccoli we had as sides were watery with very little seasoning. I normally like a medium rare burger but mine was so raw I could only eat a couple of bites. Our service was very good but not worth going back for.

We always liked Wildfire but the bar gets so crowded there is no room to stand sit or talk without yelling and getting pushed around. The dinner tables are very close together and the people are packed in. Our server was very good but my prime rib was not. Not very tasty and a bit chewy.I doubt I will go back as it is too crowded and difficult to maneuver around. Seems like quantity over quality.

I had prime rib which I won't do again. It was very chewy. So the waitress got me a new piece. It was some what better but not great. We eat often and was diappointed in the meat.

A frequent stop for us. The food is generally good particularly the chopped salad. I had the chicken marieno, unfortunately I found it disappointing. Wish they had chicken marsala on the menu, but they don’t so I won’t order Wildfire’s chicken luncheon entree again—boring. Separately, they were offering buy a $100 gift card and get another $25 gift card for free. I accepted the offer only to learn that there are so many restrictions on the “free” $25 gift card, my likelihood of ever using it are not great. My mistake.

The food is always good, but the noise level made it difficult to hold a conversation. Our waiter wasn't very attentive.

Halibut was delicious. It is in the final weeks of availability. Worth the trip to have it before it is gone for the season.

They stuck us in an remote dark corner right next to the kitchen door. There wasn't any ambiance and it was lunch. it wasn't that crowded and there were a lot of nicer location available. I would have requested a different location when I arrived, but someone in my party arrived before me an was already seated.

We were disappointed in this outing! My son had the scallops and they were TINY!! My husband had the petite filet with peppercorn, but he thought it was dry (not overcooked)!! My son and I paid extra for the asparagus. It didn't WOW us. Sadly, I think we may have had one of our last meals there.

We had a big group for a birthday and family get together! The staff was fabulous from the hostess to the waiter and busboy! They were attentive with the drinks and food coming quickly. The food was delicious. We did a birthday celebration for my granddaughter which was lovely and a lot of fun! Overall it was a great experience and everyone enjoyed the meal and the restaurant! Thanks for a great time!

My husband and I have been going to Wildfire for almost 20years now. We go for both our birthdays and anniversary every year and any other time just because. Recently we had a challenge with an order due to an allergy but it was quickly fixed on our next visit ( a week later). Yes we love this place. Thank you Wildfire for always making our experience worth the visit!

Food was great. The temperature varies depending on where you were seated; I had the waiter/host change tables due that it was cold and drafty. Once our tables were changed it was good throughout the rest of my visit.

Good food Bad night to come. Took 15 minutes to honor our reservation which they offered free appetizers to compensate which was nice but with many parties that night service was very slow. Two and one half hour dinner to get appetizer dinner and dessert.
