Description: Step back in time 60 years 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 quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

I was given a gift certificate from a realtor we recommended to friends and invited friends to lunch at my favorite spot in town Wildfire. I ordered my favorite, two tenderloin filets (they offer several topping choices) topped with Parmesan. I enjoyed every bite. Their food never disappoints

I have not previously dined at any of the Wildfire locations. I was meeting a friend who lives locally and he suggested it. The good news is that the restaurant does not feel like a chain but rather, like a local joint with a nice vibe. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The room was almost full although...

Huge, noisy, crowded, is the first impression. But, the food and service rocks! It's advertised as a "steak house," but trust me, the fish is equally as good. The wine list is well thought out and has bargains galore. We had a party of 17 and somehow they made it work smoothly. Professional. I have to compliment the staff; as... More

Great food and yes, pricy, but if you go for lunch, they often have $10 burgers and sandwiches. Great service, although a little loud if you go during dinner.

How lucky we are to have Wildfire in the neighborhood. Whether it is dinner for two or a party I hosted, service and food quality and preparation are wonderful.

Wildfire chopped salad nails it every time. I get it worth out the wonton strips and change blue cheese for feta!! Lower fat and delicious. Wish they had some sort of happy hour options though.

Food, atmosphere, staff—great place. Part of a chain, but you wouldn't really know it. Old-time, high-quality, supper club atmosphere. Frank Sinatra playing over the speakers. We like sitting in the bar.

I took my office staff and their spouses to Wildfire today for a luncheon. When we asked for a quiet table we were fortunate to be seated in a small private dining room. The atmosphere of the restaurant is excellent with a night club type of feel. While the menu is extensive we decided on the Club Lunch, which is... More
