Disappointed

Visited this restaurant several times over the years and the food this time was disappointing. The steak was so tough you couldn't chew it. They rectified it immediately but still wasn't the greatest. The fish wrapped in prosciutto was dry, over salty and overcooked. Service was excellent but while... read more

We came here after not visiting here for about three years, and came back only by accident since the restaurant we were hoping for had a two hour wait time. We were very nicely surprised. I had my two daughters ages 11 and 13 with us and our meal was wonderful. Super helpful and friendly waitress, appetizers and entrees were... More

So me and my sister came to this joint since we have read such good reviews on trip advisor. Feeling very pumped about this place. But now i'm in doubt if the business can pay to get a certificate of excellence, because the service is REALLY BAD. Me and my sister came around 7 o'clock on Saturday night, the hostess... More

I've been to wildfire many times and service is always decent. Most of the service are friendly an efficient. however on my last visit, the restauraunt was packed and it seemed like they just couldn't keep up. I saw a table get up and leave, and not 5 minutes later I witnessed who I can only assume was the owner... More

We are just returning from an evening at Wildfire where the service was so bad it was comical. First, it took forever to for our server to take our drink order and then the drinks took a really long time to arrive. But we were enjoying catching up with our friends and these things happen. So it didn’t bother us... More

Was with a group of 7 people this past friday. I had a New York strip which was ok, not great flavour but was exactly cooked to my liking, medium rare. I don't think the meat is aged well. It just had that supermarket taste. The veggies were not at all creative. Everyone else seemed to like their food over... More

Wildfire is a consistent and effective eatery that does a very good job serving lots of people at a dinner service with very good product with reasonable and mostly attentive servers. The grill area is quite close to some of the seating and when its busy, particularly the last time I was there that whole area was a tad smoky.... More

We love Wildfire, living in the city we go quite often. Usually we go for steak and seafood but the other day we went for tapas and were quite pleased! Id never gone for tapas before and I really enjoyed it. Along with a couple cocktails and great service as usual it really made our night out great. Thanks again... More

Always enjoyed this restaurant until visiting with a group. Foreign visitor paid the bill and under tipped...badly. Waiter approached ME! Just a guest at the table and asked why the tip was so small. Made good on tip next day but won't go back.

Our first visit after thinking about it for awhile and after reading a wide variety of reviews. It was my wife's birthday and she's a Surf and Turf lover and the Keg was full (to be frank). I was able to get a reservation for 4, which is rare because all of the other places in St. Catharines considered decent,... More
