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.

Great food! The only problem was that tables were so close together that I got bumped several times by people walking to tables and by waitstaff.

The service and food were exceptional! We went during lunch hours and it was quite busy but our server made us feel as though we were her only table. Also, I recommend the French onion soup!

There were several good things that happened. They had a nice selection of gluten-free items for our gluten-free eater. The food was served hot when served. The food was ok for the price..nothing really wowed us. We had a birthday that day, and they did bring a nice little cake with candles.

On the con side - we probably won't get back. The food wasn't that different from other places that we go. The service was ok. The server communicated nothing..at..all. No suggestions, no feedback. He brought the check and didn't tell us a cake was coming, my husband and daughter had already gone outside to get the car, while I paid the check. I don't like a talky service, per se, but I do like an attentive and communicate server.

The food was great, and the restaurant has a great vibe/atmosphere. The busboys were outstanding, but our waitress basically ignored us the whole time we were there unless we flagged her down.

The restaurant is noisy - especially in the center room. Love the food but can only afford this once in a while.

I have never been so disappointed in Wildfire! I got to the restaurant, asked for a warm booth to sit at due to the air conditioning that felt colder than the outdoors that particular day. The hostess, Ariana took us through the bar to an empty room called the Hilltop I believe... no other guests were sitting in here and the room was freezing so we asked nicely to move into the main dining or even bar area that were much warmer while we were walking by. She gave us attitude by rolling her eyes, changing the tone of her voice and sighing while she left us standing there while she went to check the host stand for another spot?! There were several other open booths, over 15 at least! I understand that they try to be fair to the serving rotation but at this time the restaurant was very empty and not busy at all. She comes back and says that she can sit us into a booth in the kitchen with an evil smirk on her face, as if we were being punished for asking politely to move, it was just ridiculous. There were several open booths that were not butted right up to the noisy kitchen and we asked nicely if we could sit in one of the other 8 booths surrounding the man dining area. She says to us, "no I'm sorry I have to stick to the rotation". Then within not even 3 minutes she comes back with a couple who she seats in the booth she just told us no about. I tried complaining to the manager who was not interested in hearing this complaint and was like "soooooo do you want to sit in one of the other booths?" I don't think he understood the complaint was not necessarily where were seated but how we were treated. Also, side note... the potatoes I order were rock hard on the top layer and cold. I usually take my family, friends and coworkers here on a regular basis because I usually have a pleasant experience but could not bite my tongue in ignoring the poor management and service we unfortunately experienced and I will second guess this as my go-to spot.

As always we enjoyed out dinning experience at Wild Fire. We had asked for Shelsey to be our server and she was stationed elsewhere and we had her sister Sarah as our server and she was great! Looking forward to our next visit.... BTW the food was outstanding as always!

There isn't a salad similar to the Wildfire chopped, and always a go to. Same for the BBQ chicken with wild rice or mashed potatoes. The portion of chicken and rice has gotten smaller and smaller over the last year, but it's definitely enough, so no concern, but definitely apparent. Same for the fried calamari. While very good, the portion is 1/2 what it was 6 months ago. At $13.95, I think there should be more on the plate. Jay S. is a great server. Friendly, attentive, helpful!

I made a reservation for 9p.m our party was not seated for another 30 minutes. The table we were given was very tight and my guess kept getting bumped into. The food was okay.

I have been here many times and was disappointed in our meal. Had to send back our cosmopolitan and 2nd was the same. Roasted vegetables looked like they were cooking all day. Scallops were good. Surprised but felt there has been a decline in the food

My colleague and I each ordered the burger from their lunch menu. They were delicious; cooked to a perfectly pink medium with fries extra crispy as we requested. Service was a little slow for our lunch hour limits and after waiting a while for our check, we rushed out and accidentally left behind the dessert that we had ordered to-go. Fortunately, the host was able to reach me by phone - thanks to my Open Table reservation - and reached me before I had walked to the parking lot. 😋
