I was disappointed by the ambiance created by the staff. The host and hostess had unprofessional banter going on at our arrival and that was our first impression. Then by 9pm on a Sunday night waiters started taking down tables and closing out in front of us. Several large plastic drink containers were left right in front of our booth for 20+minutes. It definitely gave the impression that the staff wanted customers to leave, despite there being a lot of customers left and it being a holiday weekend. Not what you would expect for this caliber restaurant where you are paying a lot for dinner. It will make me rethink returning despite good food and good personal service by our waiter.

Blah , we have been going to wildfire since it opened , with friends , family events , business meetings etc. decided to take my son here for breakfast and it was overall , disappointing! Cold coffee , very dry eggs and service wasn’t the usual standards. Oh well , it was a Sunday morning. In the future , we will skip the “brunch “ and all will be good !

My wife came here for our cozy romantic valentines day dinner. Excellent Fillet and loved the signature crusts. Other than that, this place came up short for a fancy occasion. Our greeter tried to seat us in right in front of the busy dining room entry way and when asked to be moved to an empty table in a more quiet area the attitude was of clear annoyance and unwelcomming. We also expected the clientele to be more upper class considering it's location in the high end galleria mall. Men and ladies wore jeans and untucked shirts; it was an embarrassment to wear a suit and tie which was highly unexpected. I'd suggest to Wildfire that they should have and enforce a strict dress code in their dining room but what restaurant can turn away customers in this economy? Shame. We won't be back here for a special occasion. I should have gone to something with class like Prime Rib in DC.

We went for Valentine's Day for which Wildfire had a special menu that included several gluten free options. We were seated in a booth in the Martini Lounge as we requested which, considering the crowds that day, was very much appreciated. The food was excellently prepared and our server was fantastic. A great way to celebrate a special day.

I think because it was Valentine’s Day they must have had a lot of folks call out. It was definitely the B team there tonight. We are frequent patrons of Wildfire and it is usually our favorite restaurant. Tonight was disappointing. First, our server was rude and either had way too many tables or just didn’t care about her customers. We saw her about once every 30 minutes. Next, our menu was missing a page, so we had to ask for another to see the specials. When our server was taking our drink order, she started talking to another server. She pretended she could hear us and hold a conversation at the same time, but ten minutes later she came back to ask our order again. Took about 15 more minutes to get our drinks.

We ordered calamari for an appetizer. It was cooked to perfection. Only problem was they served it with cocktail sauce instead of marinara. Like i said previously, probably the b team tonight.

I ordered the ribeye, expecting a nice chunk of beef. I was very surprised when a my strip showed up with some type of topping. They corrected it quickly and that was appreciated. The ribeye was to be cooked to medium rare. Some parts were. Other parts were well done. Even more sections were still raw. I ate what I could and brought the rest back home. I will finish cooking my steak for breakfast.

It took a bit to see our waiter, but once he greeted us he continued to be prompt. Food was moderate - the lamb was MR with a number of spots that were R. The dessert and wine definitely saved the meal this time. I’m normally a fan but I guess it’s time to explore other options.

We dined at Wildfire-Tysons Corner for Valentine's Day dinner (2018). The menu is fabulous with great food that is delicious and served in the right-sized portion. The atmosphere is excellent for a quiet dinner or a celebratory event. This time it was the service that was definitely worth mentioning. Alex, our server did a great job of juggling multiple tables and assuring us our table was a priority through word and deed. One entree was slightly under cooked. There were no questions or discussions on what constituted "under cooked." The entree was immediately taken to get it right. The manager on duty was Byron, who deserves mention for taking care of the "glitch" in our dining experience. He did it in a most personable and professional manner. He stopped by and apologized, then returned to check that all was right. The entree was taken off our bill, as the management obviously understands customer service. A free dessert was also part of the resolution. Kudos to Byron and Alex. We hope to see them the next time we dine at Wildfire.

Other reviews refer to the poor service and I would echo that experience. People were friendly but not timely or focused. Little things add up. Asked 3 times for sugar for tea (3 different waiters). A long gap between seating, taking drink orders, and giving food order. The food was OK. Given that other eateries in Tyson's Galleria are more open and bright, it woudl not go again.

It was a wonderful Valentines Day dinner. This is our 4th year celebrating at this restaurant. Everything was perfect. From the warm cornbread, yummy mushrooms, delicious steak and side dishes to a wonderful dessert. Always save room for dessert! Whatever you decide on, you won’t be sorry. Everyone should take advantage of their Valentine’s prefix menu! If you don’t have a chance then, go during lunch and have one of their fantastic hamburgers or great salads! You won’t be disappointed.

We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The French onion soup and chopped salad were amazing. My girlfriend had the beef wellington and greatly enjoyed it. The server was very on point in asking if we needed anything but also letting us linger after we were done for as long as we wanted. When my girlfriend didn't like the wine they initially brought her, they gladly brought her a new kind at no extra charge. They also brought her an additional side dish by accident but said no problem. Then to top it off, the waitress brought out a free piece of cake for us because we were celebrating our six month anniversary. Yes, it's an expensive meal but it is worth every penny and then some. Come!

We were disappointed. My husband filet trio was overcooked, he had asked for medium rare and one of the trio was well done, the others were medium to medium well. My fish with crabmeat was also overcooked, and the rice that came with it was dried out. My son's large filet was cooked very well and he was happy.
We will not be going back, for the price there are better restaurants in the area.
