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.

We went here on a Thursday night just my husband and I. We made reservations prior and we were seated right away. We were given what seemed like an hour to look over the menu before our waiter decided to show up. If it wasn't for our anniversary and being on the late side we would of walked right out... More

We were four for dinner. One person needed a gluten free meal. A nice touch: a board with gluten free bread was served along with the board of the usual breads. The shrimp and crab bisque was delicious, however, the French onion soup was too sweet (addition of sugar in stead of slow caramelizing of the onions?) and the cheese... More

We were a party of eleven celebrating a college graduation. We had reservations and were placed in the "Rascall Room". It was a perfect location for our family. We had amazing service (ask for Matt) and everyone was attentive and helpful. Our bread was constantly stocked and cleared. The brown bread with golden raisins is amazing. Included in our group...

The food is always delicious at Wildfire but they almost always forget something very important like taking the bun off of the burger when you specify that you are Gluten Free or taking the cheese off of the sandwich when you are lactose intolerant. My mom and I go there all the time but we almost always have to wait... More

Went to Wildfire recently to celebrate a milestone birthday. I made a reservation there, as it can be quite a wait. I let them know ahead of time we were celebrating a milestone birthday. When we got there, they put us in their small party room that they must use for overflow on the weekends. I felt like we were... More

this is an excellent restaurant. I have only two criticisms. First, it is rather noisy and conversation is difficult. Second, be prepared for a long wait for a table, even if you have a reservation.

This was my second visit. Had the horseradish encrusted ribeye. It was the best! Also had the best spinach salad, also try their cream spinach! Great food and service!

Prefferences in restaurants are so subjective;; sometimes that subjectivity can be the only justfication for the popularity of a restaurant smas mediocre as Wildfire. The wine choices are poor--none are high-end nor have complex flavors, but they are priced as if they are. The salads and appetizers are OK--tasty, but unexceptional. The salmon was good, but the vegetables were average... More

After reading the positive reviews for this restaurant, my mom and I decided to eat here for dinner. We made reservations- which were honored, but our waitress didn't check on us very often. The bread was good, we ordered the pretzels for our appetizers - these were both good. Our main course choices, however- were disgusting. My mom ordered a... More
