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.

I’ve been a big fan of Wildfire for many years. I took my daughter out for her birthday. We chose to eat in the bar instead of waiting for our much later reservations. The server Raul was very polite and nice. He was busy being it the bar on a Saturday evening, no complaints there.

I was very disappointed in the calamari. Aside from being a smaller portion, the appetizer I had enjoyed for years was very greasy and there was a pool of oil at the bottom of the plate. In years past the calamari had a very light and fluffy breading and never dripping grease. It’s as if I ordered it from a cheap bar.

My steak (porterhouse) was not the best I’ve had there but wasn’t horrid except it was not hot at all. It sat a while and was like room temperature. The cheddar infused twice baked potato was the best out of the meal. We ordered sautéed mushrooms on the side and those were typically fine.

Matt was a pleasant and courteous server! The NY strip steak was well prepared with the Parmesan crust and cooked to order. The only issue was the table full of kids behind us that were extremely noisy and kept getting out of their chairs to dance. Not wildfires fault but it was extremely annoying! Not a place for kids to be running around and dancing as the area was crowded and wait staff had to watch out for the kids as they were trying to maneuver around tables to serve food!

We had a wonderful time. Had requested a round table in the main dining room. This request was accommodated. The server knew the occasions we were celebrating. Service was outstanding. Food was delicious. We can always depend on wildfire. It’s our favorite place to host special occasions!

Slow service. 1 server for 11 people. Steak was overdone. Chicken meal was sent back. Drinks and bread took way to long. Team was not impressed.

We had 5:30 reservations and had to wait a little bit which I was surprised when the restaurant was not full
Then when we were seated, we had to wait a long time for the waiter to approach us.
Other than that it was fine

Our server Justin was a busy man tonight but he brought his “A-game” of superb service! Three of us dined to celebrate my husbands birthday tonight! Great food—-we all had something different: filet mignon, nightly fish special of Parmesan-crusted cod plus Prime-rib French dip! Oh, where to begin? They were all super delicious so you’ll enjoy each and every item on the menu! Such a great treat! Two of us also enjoyed their WildFire ale which was dark, sweet, fruity & PERFECT! Make sure to ask for a sample & then order a glass. It was excellent!

I have been to Wildfire's in the past and loved them. The service was really poor and the food was cold. The waiter got our order wrong twice. Once I finally got the food, I asked for my creamed spinach which he never brought. Even though it was my birthday (and we told him twice), we had to ask for deserts/desert menu. Terrible birthday experience. Wish I had chose somewhere else!

We were greeted by an very kind hostess named Dawn who started off our experience in such an awesome way. Great Service from our server. We really appreciated her attentiveness. She never made us feel like we were rushed. Food and drinks were spaced out just right! Date night was great and the food was excellent!

We had a fantastic time. Our server allowed time for us to chat and enjoy our drinks before ordering the food. His timing was impeccable when it came to refreshing our drinks. The food was delicious! It was extremely busy that night and the service was top notch! We were all very pleased!

It’s been awhile since we’ve been to wildfire, this visit was quite a difference. Goat cheese app and salad were good as usual, Slab of ribs seemed smaller and definitely over cooked, steak sandwich is now blackened, seems like a tougher cut of meat. Filet was tender but lacked flavor. Desserts were good.
