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.

From the Chicken Chopped Salad, to the Homemade Cornbread, then to the Homemade Soup, on to the AMAZING burgers and the fantastic server (Lynnwood), I cannot say enough. Everything was fantastic! I work in this industry and can sometimes be over critical when it comes to my dining experiences. However, I couldn't find a thing wrong...not a thing. I highly... More

The food was so good and I loved the ambience. We had a friendly waiter who suggested this delicious dessert which I almost left without eating!

Maybe everyone else had a grand time today, but they lost me today with there NEW rules of giving out one piece of in-expensive corn bread each and then having some fast moving grumpy guy giving us the bum's rush, instantly taking the plate away and not saying "would you like some more", but 'saying' no more for you, one...

The prices are high for a reason, top quality food! Starting with my side salad...loved it! Lots of extras on it like cucumber and egg. Both my... More

We brought some Asian friends here because they wanted some good US steaks. We stayed away from the most famous steak houses in an effort to stretch our entertainment budget. They were not disappointed! Wildfire offers a relaxed semi-casual contemporary dining experience at a reasonable price. We sat in the lounge area which had a lot of booths. The filets,... More

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
