“Average for a steak house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

This was the second time I've been to this restaurant. The first time was about a year ago. This restaurant is located in a mall. The menu has a nice selection of steaks along with some seafood, chicken and lamb. I had a spinach side salad that was delicious. It had bacon, hard boiled egg and honey mustard dressing. My NY strip was cooked to order and had good flavor. I also ordered a side of au gratin potatoes that was decadent. While everything tasted great the wait for it was much too long and the food arrived luke warm. To the restaurant's credit they provided good service, kept us posted on the food and the manager told us at the end of the nigt that he took care of the two bottles of wine on the house. Ambiance wise, the place is very noisy. Not a place to have a romantic dinner. Not a bad place, but there are better steak houses out there.

“Delicious Food - Horrible Service!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

My wife and I took a couple and two ministers to dinner a couple of weeks ago. We had been to Wildfire before and everything was great. Not so this time. Our waiter, a stout, older man, had an attitude from the moment we arrived. Not only was he impatient, but downright rude from the start. One of the ministers was dressed in his religious garb, and he seemed to have the most animosity toward him. When the minister commented that the waiter was putting down the "flight of drinks" very close to him, he gave him a sarcastic apology. He proceeded to roll his eyes as well. It went downhill from there. He gave rude answers and sighed to a couple of other diners at our table as well. The food took over one hour to arrive. We thought that perhaps the waiter was trying to "teach us a lesson." The manager was called over and he could not have been any nicer. We told him about the rudeness and disrespect of the waiter and he again apologized. I cannot tell you how embarrassed we were that we brought special people to the restaurant we love and had the worst experience ever. When the food arrived, it was delicious (although I had forgotten the macaroni and cheese was below standard and tasteless). The manager gave some discount to the bill to make up for the long wait. It will be a long time before we return, if ever. There are plenty of places with equally good food without the poor "service." The waiter would better serve the restaurant by washing dishes in the kitchen out of view and contact with people.
