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.

Food and service were top notch! I had the macadamia nut crusted halibut and my husband had the filet mignon. Both dishes were amazing and we had plenty to take home. Our server was attentive but not pushy and we were seated right away with reservations.

Food was good. Unfortunately they pack people in so tight there’s no space for people to walk. I was constantly bumped by customers and wait staff while we were eating dinner. My daughter had a basket of rolls spilled on her by a waitress walking by. Disappointing when you are paying a lot for a nice meal.

Food is very good as is the service. I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. I prefer to go at off hours as it gets very crowded at peak and noisy but many enjoy this. It seems to be quite a social place after work. I had family members in from out of town and they were VERY happy with the food and service.

Nice evening had reservations for 6:15pm came in and our table was waiting.
Service was great. I had the bone in rib eye charred medium rare cooked to perfection and was delicious, I opted to upgrade to double baked potato it was a great update large and good as well. My wife had the filet medallions with Parisian crust she loved them she had a sweet potato that she liked also. We had also split the wildfire chopped salad as an appetizer the small was more than we had needed for the 2 of us.

I hadn’t been out with just the wife in a while. We had a lettuce entertain you gift card we’d been sitting in for almost a year we decided to take advantage of. It’s a great restaurant we both enjoy. The experience and food is always consistent.

I love the restaurant. The food is great, the ambiance is wonderful, The service is good. The only thing I dislike is waiting for my table. I ate here 2 times this week and eat there frequently. My only complaint is that I can't sit down until all of my party is there. I'm in my 70's and don't want to go into the bar. I'm often there with 8 persons including my father in law with a walker. I have never not shown up , nor have my guests. I'd rather sit down at my table and have a cocktail since the table is ready

Food was good. Ordered the burger special of the day which was blue cheese stuffed and it was juicy and delicious. Waiter offered to substitute veggie for fries and I chose creamed spinach which was also delicious. My friend ordered bacon wrapped scallops which she thoroughly enjoyed. Wildfire is always a good solid choice and I always enjoy. Also a good value.

The adult meals were excellent but both children’s meal were awful. The Mac and cheese had an unusual taste and smokey smell. The cheese pizza was burned. The manager was gracious and did what he could. He took the uneaten meals off the bill and comped us desserts. We were disappointed on this particular occasion. Normally it is excellent.

The food was excellent however, the service was inconsistent and the waiter kept leaving for long periods of time. Our dining experience in total was 3.5 hours long due mostly to the wait staff. The table was rarely cleared we had plate stacked in the middle of the table at one point, which if you're paying the prices that they charge for food ($427.00 w/o tip for 6people) you'd expect a better overall experience.

We were placed in a booth at the bar. It was so tight that the four of us couldn’t even hold our menus. Way too crowded in there!
We won’t ever sit in there again.

We are not from the area so I took a chance off of reviews. They were too good to be true! They were spot on! Took very good care of our party. All the staff is amazing. Melissa at the bar is a gem. All of the food was great both Friday for happy hour and Saturday for our daughter's white coat ceremony celebration!

Food was above average, but service was very poor. Quite busy for a Friday night, but our waitress took 15 minutes to even take our order, forgot to bring me my glass of wine until I finally flagged her down 30+ minutes into our meal, and brought our dinner over an hour after we had initially sat down. It was a Friday night, but she barely checked on us. We also had our kids with us, so having to wait an hour for food was unacceptable. We won't be back.

My skirt steak was sweet and I wasn’t expecting that , my daughters burger was mediocre, and my others daughters tuna was dry . My mother said her prime rib was thin , but it was very good . I tried the prime rib as well and it was amazing . Everything else sucked . Very disappointed on the quality of the food for the price . Will not be returning.

Celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary the other night. Chose one of our favorites this time: Wildfire! Wonderful restaurant with a wonderful staff and excellent kitchen! Started out with the Moroccan chicken skewers along with Bison meatballs. Both were outstanding. We both chose tenderloin for dinner except mine was Bison tenderloin...apparently can't get enough Bison. Both were cooked to total perfection. We even went for dessert, not an unusual thing in our world actually, and had the chocolate chip cookie and triple chocolate cake. Couldn't finish them...too stuffed.

Huge fan of Wildfire...will most certainly return again....and again.
