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.

I typically enjoy wildfire. We usually go about three times a year. However, for the first time, my bone in ribeye was seasoned well but very tough! That’s a lot to pay for steak and it not be delicious. I was full from my appetizer (we shared an order of calamari and I had french onion soup-both delicious). So, I thought I would bring the steak home and slow roast it in the oven, to soften it up a bit. It didn’t work. In hindsight, I wish I had sent it back.
Our waitress was attentive and polite. I will go back again but questionable if I will have the bone in ribeye.
I still recommend Wildfire, it is one of my favorites.
My husband ordered the prime rib, his was soooo good. He enjoyed the creamed spinach and wild rice. I chose roasted veggies as my side, which was also very tasty. All in all, everything was great with exception of the bone in ribeye.

Wildfire always consistent for the most part! Good Food. However, I did order my steak medium plus and it came back well done. Sent it back, new steak wasn't done as well done as the first but it wasn't medium plus. At that point, i just ate it. Service just ok, nothing to write home about...had to ask for items several times.

For our 47th Anniversary, we immediately wanted to dine at Wildfire. It's a wonderful experience. Great seating, great food and always great a price point. Our server was fabulous and did not rush our dining time. It was relaxing and there were a lot of people. The complimentary dessert was perfect. We could have chosen Gibsons, Michael Jordans, Perry's or Maggianos, but we wanted Wildfire. It did not disappoint. See you next time for our 48th Anniversary!!

I have been going to the Wikdfire for years and the portions have always been substantial. Well, not this time! The crab cakes were so thin and small they wouldn’t stay together! My grandson fish was so small it was ridiculous ! I always get the medallion trio, but, this time the medallions were quite thin! Filet mignon has always been thick. I am a person who believe in voting. With my feet that is! I will not be returning to the Wildfire! They no longer maintain the quantity nor quality they once had

Only suggestion - we sat in bar area which was too tight to move. need to open up and make more space for walk ways etc. Cant put on a coat without hitting someone at the next table etc. Perhaps remove some tables ...

We had a 9:00pm reservation. We arrived at 8:50pm we didn’t get seated until 9:40pm. I do understand that we requested a booth. I still think it’s ridiculous to have to wait 50 minutes to get seated. The reason I requested a reservation is because I didn’t want to wait to be seated as if I was a walk in.

Our server Frances was wonderful. Delicious Cod special with Brussels. Yum! Very crowded but sat us right at our reservation time. A noisy place. Booths are a tight fit for two couples. All in all, enjoyed the evening.

My best friend of 50 years and I are finally retired. So we can now meet for lunch. What a treat. And we now decided Wildfire is our new “ lunch place”! Service was wonderful. Attentive and did not rush us. Everything we ordered was perfect! And we were so surprised when the bill came.!affordable for us on fixed incomes! We absolutely will be back many times!! Thank you!

Excellent restaurant...glad I made a reservation! I had the salmon...really good and the au graten potatoes are to die for! Wine is expensive, but good with an ample pour. Waitress was attentive without being annoying!

I've eaten at the restaurant a number of time and love the food--except for this time. My all time favorite is the mushroom crusted pork chop cooked medium well. Unfortunately, this time it was very over cooked. The waiter was apologetic and asked if I wanted to return it for another. I declined. I NEVER return food at any restaurant when its not satisfactory. People are so unstable now and I don't take chances with anyone who might be upset because you feel food wasn't prepared correctly. The waiter we had was exceptional though. And so very, very pleasant. (He wasn't the person that delivered our meals though).

Everything else I ate was spot on though. So I'll assume it was an off day. But it is a great restaurant.

All of our steaks were prepared very poorly

One guest ordered petit filet- medium , they steak was completely grey inside, no sign of pink

Second guest ordered petit filet medium rare- one half was well the other side was medium rare at best as it was overcooked

Third guest had the 3 crusted filet, all were to be medium. First was charred on both sides, raw in middle. Second was medium rare but closer to rare and the first piece. Last was over well

Whomever was working the grill Sunday had no idea what they were doing

The fish was good

Fantastic food and service as always!!! Wine selection is very good. Other than having a "Wildfire" wine brand, gives Coopers a run for the money!!

We were 15 minutes late for our table for 6. I called and they held our table.
The service was very good. Our server was very patient with us. Everyone was busy talking instead of making dining decisions.
She explained the menu to us because there was a family style option that was a little confusing.
Four of us ordered Fillet Mignon, two ordered Park Chops. The fillets came medium well and well done vs. medium rare as ordered. The server immediately ordered new steaks. The chops and side orders of spinach and mashed potatoes were fine. The service of water and drink refills were well attended. The desserts were Key Lime pie and Chocolate cake that were superb.
The price for two including drinks was $99. I would say that the price was quite reasonable.
We highly recommend Wildfire for a group. We also recommend it for a date. My wife and I have dined in the bar area several times. The bar is a bit more noisy but that’s to be expected.
The other nice feature of the Wildfire restaurant is that it’s a Lettuce Entertain You establishment.
Give it a try. You’ll love it.
Be sure to make a reservation.
