I've wanted to try Wildfire for a long time, but was a little concerned that the prices might be beyond my budget. I was pleasantly surprised to find there are some "more affordable" options on the menu including salads, pizzas, sandwiches along with a few chicken entrees. The steaks, seafood, ribs and pork chops are pricy, but for a once-in-awhile-special... More

I have been going to Wildfire for years and have rarely been disappointed. The service is phenomenal each and every time! Their regular menu is always delicious but the specialties of the day are fantastic. The soups are always so tasty and different, this week was cream of artichoke! So delicious.

The reviews said this was a moderately priced steak house, I found it to be extremely expensive for the lack of food and service. We had to send back a beer, my steak was over cooked and we had to send back the side of potatoes for being cold. The manager did allow us to have dessert on him but... More

Went with a friend and ordered from the gluten free menu, which had several options for gluten and dairy free! I had a fantastic Bison burger with an onion marmalade and lightly dressed arugula. They also had great seafood, steak, pasta, wood-fires pizzas, and appetizers on the gluten free menu! The server, Kelly, was fantastic! She was extremely nice and... More

Have been here before and each time I am amazed that they take dining to a new level. Service was beyond fantastic and the food was delicious and perfectly prepared. I loved the fact that the server knew the couple we were with and also brought them their favorite beverage right away. This is the hallmark of great service. We... More

WOW... what a spot this was... You drive up and it has valet parking, but there's ample parking in the front and side/rear. You walk through the revolving door, and to me, it is reminiscent of a restaurant or speakeasy from the 20's or 30's. The "Ellington Room" (I initially think Duke Ellington) stood out. The dimly lit restaurant brought... More

I had high hopes for dinner as we walked from our hotels and could smell the steaks leading us to the restaurant. The service was good, the salad was great (roasted beet and goat cheese) and the steak cooked perfectly. The problem lie in the fact there was no flavor. Absolutely none. My mouth watered more on the walk there... More

The bun of the burger is like the pretzel bun. It does not get so soggy. I ordered my regular burger with lettuce and tomato. The meat is a good 3/4 inch thick. It is juicy, tender, not charred tasting, full flavor, and plain delicious. My French fries tasted fresh - not greasy tasting, hot and crispy. The best angus... More

Been coming here for years with my coworkers and we love the service, appetizers, and martinis! Kelly is always great at the bar and the dining! The half price appetizers are always consistently delicious! Martini flights are my favorite since it's so hard to choose just just one flavor! Been here every month for past 2 months and will return... More
