“Worst Dinner we had in Australia”
Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

On our last night of a 2 week trip to Australia we went to Wildfire on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We were seated promptly but it took the waiter quite some time to acknowledge us. Even though it was early in the night they were out of 3 different entrees. We waited 90 minutes for our first course of steak tartare (which was the only excellent part of the meal). After a brief apology, we were brought our main courses. The soft shelled crabs were fried to a burnt crisp and inedible. No apology. No offers. After sitting there for nearly 3 hours we were done. If you want only a Brazilian steak house concept the this may be ok but otherwise avoid!

“Great Food/Service”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant is as advertised. We made a reservation a couple hours beforehand using their website and were subsequently seated immediately upon arrival. The restaurant offers great views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbor, and has a great layout for all occasions. We ordered the Churrasco dinner with dessert and sides. Be sure to try all the different meat assortments before doubling up on something you already had. It doesn't seem as though they arrive in any particular order.

“Amazing food - not so amazing service”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I chose Wildfire for dinner with a friend from interstate because of me previous experienece here and the amazing view. Undoubtable the food is delicious - it's a shame the service didn't follow this time. Leaving out bottle of white wine on the table (with no intention of bringing an ice bucket for it), patronising attitude when I want to taste the wine before the gentleman poured it into our glasses, bringing our main about half an hour after we've already finished out entree.. Was not impressed and I'm sure the waiter noticed - well I'm hoping so. Probably this was my last visit there.

“Great view, ok food”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a private room on the top floor with great views of the opera house through the huge windows. Service was good, but food was ok - not bad, but not so memorable either.
