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 really enjoy eating at Wildfire. They have great gluten free options, including bread and a dessert. The wine list is solid. I have had something from each section of the menu and enjoyed all of it. I particularly enjoy the gluten free version of the macadamia nut crusted halibut.

Service is always solid. My only complaint is that it can get a little loud, particularly in the main dining area.

What a great experience! We had a party of eight, and we all had an enjoyable first time. Our guests we hosted from the UK enjoyed their experience as well. They hosted our large party in a private room which was great for catching up. Delicious food.

This was my son's wedding day. I had called an asked for a secluded spot, they sat us in a small private room, which I appreciated. The service was exceptional from the receptionist, server and wait staff.

We have been here many times, and always consider it a great spot.

Always excellent prime rib was cooked to medium rare perfection, as usual. Bride's crusted filet trio was just as good. Solid but short wine list is a bit overpriced.

Disappointed. I have been there several times. We had 5:30 reservations. Seated immediately. Our server right there. Ordered drinks and salad then he disappeared for quite awhile, maybe half hour him to take our dinner orders. Then when dinner came three of the four dinners were hot. The one had the bison meatloaf. Her meat was cold and the sides hot. Someone suggested getting the servers. We decided not worth waiting Then took awhile between dinner and coffee and then to finally get our check. We were there almost 3-1/2 hours.

Usually consistent food prep however the ribs were not tender and not acceptable. They replaced the entray without question. It was still a good dining experience. Probably won’t get the ribs unless they are a special of the day.

I’ve eaten at Wildfire many times and have never been disappointed. When going for lunch, service is prompt without the feeling of being rushed. Dinner, which is generally a more relaxed meal, always allows as much time as we wish to spend and the wait staff is never intrusive, but willing to interact if we attempt to engage them without lingering too long. Cocktails at dinner time are top notch and the food is always excellent. Wildfire has been, and remains, one of my all-time favorite restaurants!

There were just a few customers when we started but it started filling up after 1:00. We had the shrimp and crab bisque (very good), mushroom-topped pork cho (also very good), macadamia-crusted halibut (very good), with sides of fries and roasted veggies. Sides were also good. Almost forgot... their cornbread is soooo good! Service was great! Didn’t have room for coffee and dessert, but maybe next time! Overall, a good experience!

It was really unusual for Wildfire the service was awful. It was the first time I have ever had bad service at Wildfire; however, the manager made it right in the end and for that I would definitely still recommend Wildfire as a great place to dine.

We did not feel like cooking on a Friday evening. Nice dinner. Pleasant. Get there early on a Friday night. Main courses were very good. Desert left quite a bit to be desired. Pies are not what they used to be.

The service, the food were all good. The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is because I ended up with a glass full of ice instead of water. I drink a lot of water for medical reasons.

We waited 15 minutes for a 6pm reservation, not that bad. We were seated near the doorway to the patio, not optimal, but we didn't request a change since we were hoping to make this a quick dinner for my wheelchair-bound Dad.

We didn't order cocktails or appetizers, just a main course and dessert. Service was slow and we waited at least 40 minutes for our food to be served after ordering. The manager stopped and acknowledged that our order was taking a long time but would be coming out soon. Didn't happen for another 10 minutes.

Two hours and ten minutes after our arrival, we were at the valet stand. We stood at the curb for five minutes before we realized the guy looking at his phone was the valet on duty and asked for our car. I was helping Dad into the car as the valet stood next to me saying "$6." After Dad was safely in the car and I was disassembling the wheelchair when the valet re-appeared repeating "$6". No assistance was offered but gotta collect the money!

Delicious baked seafood platter with wild rice. My wife enjoyed her favorite Saturday night special meal, Beef Wellington.
The BLT salad was a nice surprise during the summer season.

Wildfire is our favorite restaurant. We rarely eat out anymore because over the years we have had so many bad experiences at sit down restaurants. We feel that the overall level of service in restaurants has gone way down. This is not the case at Wildfire, ever. The food is consistently excellent and the service is always very good. We enjoy the relaxed yet classy ambiance and are always satisfied when we leave.
We usually use Open Table for reservations because it is very convenient. We also always request a booth, which we like very much. The only issue we had this time is that when we checked in, we were told that a booth was not available. The person double checked that we had requested one and realized we had. She apologized and we still had a good experience. I just hope that the next time that detail will not be overlooked. We had friends join us and they were very happy with the experience as well.

Wildfire needs to incorporate more vegetarian options. We, vegetarians, appreciate more than a black bean burger and salad.
