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.

Loved the food, service, and atmosphere. We were put in a seperate room with minimal tables and the sound level was great, not too loud, not uncomofortably quiet.

Parking at the facility is wholefully inadequate. Had a reservation for 7 PM, checked in at 6:45 PM and were not seated until 7:15 PM. There was no place to wait except in the smalll lobby area which was extremely crowded. Food was mediocre for the price. Wait service was outstanding. Noise level was terrible not energetic as depicted in the survey selections. We were at a booth and could barely hear each other speak. Would not recomment this restaurant

Probably our 5th time dining at Wildfire, always have a great meal there. everything was amazing except the steaks were overcooked. my son ordered MR and came out M, I ordered M and got MW, almost W. When you pay $40-$50 a steak, you expect them to be cooked right. We didn't send them back - not our style.

My family and I ate at Wildfire on an early Saturday evening and we are probably not going back. We have eaten there before, but this time we were not impressed. It took us about 30 minutes to get our main course order after finishing our appetizers. When we received our filets and tuna steak main course orders, the food was only Luke warm, like it was sitting out under warming lifts or trays for a while. Our waitress was pretty unapologetic when we asked where our food was with just a “It’s on the way.” Also, both of our sons had upset stomachs after eating their tuna steaks, served medium rare. This is a fairly expensive restaurant, so one would expect better for this price point. Overall disappointing and so I can’t recommend.

Again our experience at the Restuarant was wonderful . Our waitress was patient and right on it.

We ordered the Rib and Chicken to go. The Chicken was definitely Wildfire quality, but the Ribs were either old ,or overcooked . They were for my Husband. and he mentioned they were not what we always
expect from Wildfire.

We've been to Wildfire many times. It is consistent. This particular visit was extremely loud because of several large groups in the main dining room. The food doesn't disappoint. We'll be back.

Our party of six was seated in the Bears room, which is decorated in Bears photos and memorabilia and which assured us of a quiet uninterrupted time. Our waiter was terrific, prompt, professional and courteous. Wildfire’s various salads appeal to everyone, even their small version is an incredibly generous portion. This restaurant is a favorite!

My wife and I have celebrated our anniversary at wildfire every year for the past 10 years or so. I was disappointed this time. I thought the food was just okay, it all lacked flavor. We were seated next to a large party in a side room kind of between tables. Not very nice for the money you spend.

My husband forward this to me, some way to celebrate an anniversary, awful.....my husband requested the toppings for his burger on the side, none came. My salmon sandwich had no avocado as stated, then to get home and have not one but two calls saying we cheated you out of ten dollars, GET REAL.. Also, there was much background conversation , next time Jason needs to make an embarrassing call to a customer, tell him to go private and use an office. But who cares, right? I was raised not to steal, thanks for making our 50 so nice! Better luck next time.

Superb service and healthy daily specials. The crispy buttermilk chicken salad was huge an outstanding. Hard to dine as elegantly for lunch anywhere for only $15!! This is my go to spot for business meals and I have never been dissatisfied in 15 years.

The booth was hard to get to as the space between the booths and the table only let one person go through at a time. This is probably a safety hazard. The booth sunk me so low that the table was at armpit level. I am five feet tall. Otherwise food and service awesome.

Holiday lunch with family. While it took a while for our server to get us the special holiday menu, once the cadence was established things were wonderful. The food, including chopped liver, matzoh balls, brisket etc. was very good. Almost like grandma’s.

We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon and the food was plentiful and wonderful.

Although John/Hostess is very nice, he came over to our table during lunch time and chatted for 3-5 minutes. I had this scheduled as a business meeting, and every minute counts when trying to close a deal. Would prefer not having the hostess come to our table to chat for no reason. Nice guy just wrong setting. Would probably not be back for a business meetings now, though he is very personable if wanted to have lunch there otherwise.

All the Lettuce restaurants are great. We are Gold members, so we frequent them all. To our surprise, they had some special food choices for Rosh Hashanah, and my wife enjoyed her brisket of beef and we both enjoyed the challah bread. Our waitress from Bulgaria was quite delightful. We also enjoyed our anniversary chocolate cake with ice cream. And, we got triple points with our scratch on (yesterday was the last day for Lettuce's scratch on points.)

Every time we make reservations at this location we always have to wait when even when we get there exactly at the reservation time. We visited on 9/28 and had to wait again. In addition, we had several fruit flies around our table. We were not happy with the visit and Wildfire happens to be my favorite restaurant. I do not think I will be going back again.

Food was very good once again. I don't think I have ever had a bad meal at Wildfire. However, the service was not what I was expecting. The restaurant is somewhat pricey and the service should represent that. Our waiter was quite slow to get things going. We ordered drinks and had to wait probably 10 minutes for them. He took our order (we wanted an appetizer) but ordered our food then also - didn't think he would be back. We did wait for some time for our food (appetizer came in an appropriate time, but dinner was slow). The waiter didn't come back - and the table was never cleared of all of the bread/plates. The server came back and tried to put the food down in some order which he got all wrong (didn't ask, just started putting food down) and one of the orders was a special, but they didn't bring the shrimp with it - we ordered 2 filet and shrimp. We will go back because I love the food, but the service just needs to step it up to represent this restaurant.

We love this place great for a celebration, as it's pretty pricey but we know that going in. High quality fare that doesn't disappoint. However the bread basket has cheapened out and the augratin potatoes were slapped onto a plate crazy style. My baked potato was naked...for an upcharge if you can believe that. Get a different side, LOL.

The food is amazing as usual. There were small mistakes with the food but overall I love eating at Wildfire. I love their chopped salad and I made sure I came in on a Saturday as they serve Beef Wellington as the special. If you decide to visit here, please make sure you make a reservation. We arrived and was seated promptly. I overheard other parties had to wait a long time just to be seated or they can try the bar area which is open to grab a table. The food is worth the wait and the atmosphere is relaxing.

What can I say? We love Wildfire and when we are in the area - well it’s one of our favorite spots to dine. We are in the area five times a year and you can bet that we will be having dinner there at least three times! Reservations right on time! Corrected original reservations from 2 to 4 people without hassle.
