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.

“Sister's Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We had a reservation through Open Table, and it was a good thing we did.
The restaurant was packed, and we arrived about 10 minutes late. As soon as we walked in, we were led to our table. Our Waiter was great, and had some suggestions for one of my sisters who needed the Gluten free menu. Our table was by the Kitchen, so we were very warm.
The food and drinks were great, and we had a good time

“Awesome food awesome staff great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We went here for my wife's birthday. Say at the bar for about 40 minutes and lives watching the bartenders. Dinner was fabulous and the waiter we had was really great. I booked online and mentioned my wife's birthday and at the end the surprises is with a simple brownie and ice cream. No fanfare and signing so it was perfect. I highly recommend

“"Rare and well done"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Based on Trip Advisor and Open Table reviews, took my 20-something son there for dinner while I was in town on business. Turned out to be a great choice. Respectful and efficient service. Crowd clearly enjoying the food and each other enhanced the upbeat ambiance. Portions matched the prices and food lived up to reviewers' comments.
