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 dined here for my friends birthday. I ordered the coconut shrimp, a side of red skinned mashed potatoes, and the pomegranate margarita. The food was delicious! And well portioned for the price. The margarita was amazing! My friend ordered the filet Wellington which was also great! I would dine again.

    I rarely write a negative review. That being said, we had a later reservation at 8:30pm. We were seated shortly after. By the time we were eating our entree at 9:15pm, we were being told that it was “last call” and if we wanted dessert or another drink we must order it immediately. Wildfire opens at 4pm. If you no longer plan to serve guests after 9pm, simply don’t take reservations after 8pm or potentially before. That doesn’t leave much time to turn a profit, but maybe that’s no longer a consideration somehow.. While I wouldn’t consider Wildfire a “nice” restaurant, we should not be asked finish up after 40 min when ordering 3 courses and always generously tipping. This may be our last time at Wildfire after well over 15 years of going there.

    The server mis-entered the wine so two checks were issued. We were charged twice for our dinner. That was over 10 days ago and we still can’t get the issue resolved.

    Inattentive server…had to ask him to get drinks ordered and he walked away after only getting 5 of the 6 guest’s order. Ignored woman who ordered appetizers for the table only to ask one of the men if we wanted to order any apps. Always had to ask for water & drink refills. Been to Wildfire in other cities and had a much better experience. Food didn’t meet expectations.

    Our server, Edgar, was a delight. He should be commended! Dinner choices were good - on the the medallions in the filet trio was medium well instead of medium, but very good. the Filet Wellington was good, but just as a personal choice I'd probably not order it again...the bread covering (artfully done) seemed more doughy than flaky. The bread served in baskets was good...would have been better if it were warm. But none of that would keep us from returning.

    We were so excited for this place but unfortunately they messed up our order and our server did little to fix it… I ordered the blue cheese medallion and they gave me Parmesan … to correct it they gave me a cup of blue cheese crumbles. Server was not attentive.
