We were looking for somewhere to have dinner at the Viaduct and stopped at Wildfire to see what was on offer. We asked to see a menu and subsequently asked if we could have a table. The waiter vaguely instructed that we could sit either outside or inside before he disappeared off elsewhere. We decided to sit outside, choosing an... More

We went to Wildfire for a small work celebration and it was awesome. Brazilian style food served the Brazilian way. Have a quick drink in the well stocked bar before being shown to your table. Then Beef, Chicken, Pork, Lamb, etc, and it just keeps coming until you turn the little peg over on the table to say you "need... More

We arrived around 7 and was welcomed and shown to a table. It was raining but we still managed to get N outside table under cover. We ordered drinks and some nibbles to start. These came quickly and met our needs. We realised that after 15 minutes that no one had come back to take our order, and we waited.... More

Wow what an awesome concept. Went here with a group of four friends. The service and atmosphere was great. The meat was fantastic and just didn't stop. We all ate to We almost exploded and then we ordered desert.

I wrote a review almost exactly two years ago, noting how slow the service is. Alas, this remains a problem now. When you have only perhaps 90 minutes to eat your meal before they insist you leave, having to wait 20+ minutes before food starts to appear is a significant portion of that time, and when much of the remaining...

You know what you're going to get with a Brazilian theme. The food was OK and the ambiance so-so but the service was impersonal and the meat servers were certainly not engaged with what they were doing. Hey, you go to one of these places to have various meats brought to your table, engage in some dialog with the server... More

Really good food and atmosphere. Our waiter John was lovely! Only annoying thing was table sitting times- you have to leave by 8 for the room to be free for next setting. I unstained it helps with table covers and BBQ cooking, but we wanting to hang out at our table a little longer :) Also some extra vegetables would... More

Decided to take my guests here for a meal as it is a tradition to me as a returning visitor to Auckland 3 times a year. I don't know what has happened since the last time but the meat was terrible,tough and certainly not worth it. After mentioning this to the manager she just shrugged it off. Unacceptable.

Decided to order from the 'a la carte' menu as opposed to having the buffet. Ordered starters and main courses for three people. Bit of a delay and then starters and main courses all arrived together!! Staff looked surprised and perplexed when we insisted that we wanted starters followed by main course. Had to get manager over to explain -... More
