Wow! I stopped here with a coworker and was not disappointed. We sat at the bar for 15 minutes and was seated promptly. The martinis were made perfectly. We had the filet and scallops for dinner. Both were cooked to perfection. It waitress was lovely and despite how busy she was...we did not seem to wait for very long. The... More

I have not experienced worse service in a restaurant in ages. One guest got their salad, one got theirs missing the main ingredient which was still being prepared by the kitchen when the greens were served, and my shrimp cocktail finally was served ten minutes later. And that was the good part of the service. Twp of the three main... More

We went to Wildfire to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The restaurant is very close to my house and I occasionally visit it. I appreciate good service and nice interior and ambiance. This time, however, I got ribs that were over-cooked and quite dry, even burnt. In addition, I was unpleasantly surprised when I was poured tap water that smelled of... More

My wife and I stopped in to have lunch. We wanted to catch up with the NFL football games so we eat at the bar. The bartender was friendly and he know the menu and the specials for the day. My wife had the Asian chicken salad (which was the special salad of the day I had the chopped chicken... More

We have been to Wildfire before and liked it but last night was a disappointment. We shared a kale salad as starter, the salad was really fresh but way too salty. After that I had scallops with sauteed spinach, and it was impossible to eat the spinach because it was way way too salty. The restaurant was very busy, the... More

We went here for a business dinner and the experience was terrific. The trio of filet medallions was especially good. They have a large selection of steaks but they also have many other dishes including top seafood. The restaurant can be a bit noisy and the menu isn't cheap but overall it is an enjoyable place for a business meal.

Appetizers were OK(spinach fondue was good, calamary OK , just too greasy) Main entries 2 out 3 were horrible I had seafood pasta - salty to the point that... More

A sleek, sophisticated room with a vaguely Art Deco ambience, dim lighting, and jazz background music (the main dining room is the Ellington Room). Separate "Martini Bar" room. Despite the very adult atmosphere, there were a surprising number of family groups during our Friday-evening visit. Our party of seven was seated at a table which proved to be a bit... More

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.
