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 took a group of 16 people here for dinner, after hearing great things about the restaurant. The service was excellent, and they accommodated us with individual bills for each person. The reviews on the food was different from person to person, the comment that I heard most often is that their steaks were overcooked and not cooked the way... More

We made reservations as we were dining on a Friday night. The ambiance was old world with darker wood and a 1930's decor. I ordered prime rib and red mashed potatoes, our daughter had three petite filets: one with horseradish crust, one with potato crust, and one with garlic Parmesan crust,creamed spinach side, my husband had the ribeye. All of... More

Great atmosphere,excellent service. The steak was one of the best I have had anywhere. Menu was balanced without too many offerings. Portions were large but not enormous. The presentation was classical with sides served separate from main course. Desserts were nothing special, usual fare from supply houses, over sweet and high caloric content. Go here for the steak, forget the... More

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
