Such a disappointment from one of Sydney's "best restaurants". I dined on a Saturday night with an out of state friend and was totally horrified by how far Wildfire has let its service standards fall. Waiters not making eye contact or showing any interest at all. Drink orders forgotten. And on several occasions two or more staff having a loud conversation right over the top of our table. Food was certainly not at the standard it once was. Can't recommend it. Which is a shame as it used to be a must-do.

This place has one of the best view / locations in Sydney - opposite the Opera House. The food was OK (especially the duckfat fried potatoes) but nothing outstanding at all!! The service was very poor - some waitresses making negative comments about my Guide Dog! Cannot recomend this Restaurant for their services.... Only good thing is / was the view. Sad as I think they could / should do much better. Their prices are far too high in regards to what they are offering..... Especially they need to (re) train their service staff. Guide Dogs NSW/ACT can do this for them for free. They just need to give them a call!

The restaurant is in the cruise ship passnger dock so views from window may be limited. However nothing can detract from the ambiance of the place and the quality of the food. Excellent!

Read the mixed reviews with amazement. Food was outstanding, best rump & pork we have eaten. Had about 5 different staff focussed on everything from wine(thanks Neil the sommelier!!) to our food to making sure we had a good time. Waiter was great and gave us good advice about which churrasco option to choose. Went home well fed!!! And happy that we had a great experience as well as a great meal.
