I went to Wildfire with high hopes as it is rated on TripAdvisor as the best steak place in Edinburgh. The restaurant itself is small (could fit approx 40 people) and perfectly pleasant with quite a cosy feel. Service was pleasant and unobtrustive. All good so far. The food did dissappoint though. I had prawns to start which were very nice themselves but rather blandly served. The steak for the main course was overcooked and rarely tasteless (ordered medium rare so expected at least a tinge of pink in the middle, it came as medium-welldone). The chips were shoestring fries, don't expect any grand beef dripping chips or triple chopped sprayed with truffle here. The sauce was passable; nothing more.
Why then the four stars? My colleagues really liked it, and their steaks did look a lot better than mine. Without their influence I would have given it a three star. For me , don't go expecting to be wowed. Perhaps on a good day in the same league as Gaucho; and a large gap down from Hawksmoor and Goodman.
