Description: 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.

“Chaos”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Huge, noisy, crowded, is the first impression. But, the food and service rocks! It's advertised as a
"steak house," but trust me, the fish is equally as good. The wine list is well thought out and has bargains galore. We had a party of 17 and somehow they made it work smoothly. Professional. I have to compliment the staff; as friendly as can be under difficult circumstances. Tip well when you go, they deserve it.

“Great food, a little loud though.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Great food and yes, pricy, but if you go for lunch, they often have $10 burgers and sandwiches. Great service, although a little loud if you go during dinner.

How lucky we are to have Wildfire in the neighborhood. Whether it is dinner for two or a party I hosted, service and food quality and preparation are wonderful.

“My go to salad.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Wildfire chopped salad nails it every time. I get it worth out the wonton strips and change blue cheese for feta!! Lower fat and delicious. Wish they had some sort of happy hour options though.
