Wildfire is only for special occasions, the prices are high, and the food is good, but nothing spectacular... the line is always long

Dined at Wildfire for lunch and my friend and I both had the chopped salad and it was delicious! It is so large that two people could share. Ingredients were fresh and tasty. It was served with fresh corn bread and it was excellent! My husband dined there a couple weeks ago and is still raving about the salmon.

As always great steaks, huge servings and some great cuts. A good standard for steakhouses. Wine by the glass is good quality.

This is the favorite restaurant of a friend we took out for her birthday. The food is excellent, as is the service. Prices are a bit steep, but it's worth it for a special occasion. Tell them you're celebrating an occasion, and you'll get a special dessert. This can be a slow and enjoyable evening out. We never feel rushed,... More

Nice atmosphere, always busy so I would definitely make reservations or go a little before dinner rush. They have a bar area that you can sit in or the restaurant. The petite filet trio is to die for, even cooked almost well done is still juicy. I order it with the parmesean crust and a side dish of garlic mashed... More

The food is always great. Not exactly a fine dining experience. Often have to wait to get in and even when you have a reservation it can be tough. Our server was maringal

Whenever we want steaks, chops, and well prepared fish, at good prices, and don't want the pretentious steakhouses, we go to Wildfire. In a very large multi-roomed Supper Club designed atmosphere, without the white table cloths, one can find a great meal. Order the Chopped salad to start, along with the complementary excellent bread basket, filled with onion rolls and... More

Family and friends went for Christmas dinner. Both at this visit, and my previous three other meals, staff and the kitchen executed very well. First, they have been doing a very good job grilling the steaks. This time I ordered a NY Strip medium rare; it came out perfectly. Wonderful char on the outside, and temperature was correct. Combined with... More

My Wife and I enjoyed a late Holiday Celebration with two good friends Saturday Evening past. Surely this was symphonic masterpiece comprised of perfectly presented Adult Beverages, a Warm and Inviting Ambiance, Exquisite Dishes and World Class Service!

Description
Step back in time 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 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.
