Description: Step back in time 60 years to when going out for dinner meant something...
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.

Great Steaks!

One of the BEST steaks around. The bottle of wine that we had with our meal was excellent. I will definitely be returning in November.

Wildfire does everything so perfectly and balanced it is hard to find a flaw. My dry aged KC Strip steak was perfect and so full of flavor the butter topping was not needed but still added to the pleasure. Out of all upscale steak houses I ever eat at I love this one. They always take care of everyone at... More

Place was packed but we had reservations and seated immediately. Good specials. Wait staff great. Food preparation awesome. We had steaks, filet, rib eye and porterhouse plus seafood platter. Everything prepared to desired temperature. Dessert options over the top. First time for our friends and they were impressed. Valet service quick.

The food and drinks at Wildfire are always excellent. I recommend their steaks, fish, and key lime pie. Be sure to have a reservation.

A nice lively environment so best to book to ensure a space. I went with a large party early evening and it was exceptionally busy. My colleagues' feedback on the food was good but I found my steak/prawn combo rather over-cooked. I had a parmesan topping which I felt detracted from the flavour of the meat that was anyway overcooked... More

For a very busy resturant, Wildfire good food and service. The martini flight is reasonably priced for medium servings. Service is efficient and food is presented well.

carlos was our server. He was fantastic as he coached us through the menu and specials as it was our first time. There were three in our party and we wanted to try as many things as possible.
