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.

We have been to Wildfire a number of times - mainly here, but other sites, too - & recently found service not as sharp as in the past 2 visits. We wondered if the increased competition has caused their serving staff to be a bit thinner than before. Staff seemed a bit rushed & not as attentive. The food also seemed not quite as reliable as we had always experienced.

We often come to this restaurant, as it is adjacent to a hotel that we frequent and near family. Service is perfect. The food is quite good. Steaks are not prime, but prepared as ordered. Large selection of steaks, choose, fish, sandwiches and salads. The salads are serve, small (for 2-3) and large (6-7). Lots of appetizers, side dishes and desserts. Huge bar area. Great for parties with private rooms. No table cloths and somewhat noisy. Reservations are honored and a must. Lots of parking, both valet and self. Children's menu is available.

We've been going to Wildfire for years. It's the BEST!! From the cocktails, to the bread, to the main menu to dessert, everything is wonderful. HUGE Martinis, warm bread. We always order the chopped salad which is to die for. I love the Halibut when it's in season. We always share it and they always split it up for us in separate meals. The filet medallions are also wonderful. Dessert isn't complete without a warm cookie and ice cream pan. We roll out of there every time!! Wonderful for celebrations or a special dinner.

Went there for a late dinner Saturday night.
Usually carry out ,which until recently,is well done.
Last two have been a disaster but manager took care of it and solved problems.
Even comped my dinner and sent me gift certificates.
Employees there are always well trained.
Waitress could not have been better or more pleasant.
Great meal of salads,steak and fish.
Deserts are wonderful especially their chocolate cake.
As always will continue to order from there.

My son lives in Chicago and he suggested we go to Wildfire when we went to visit him. Oh, boy, was he spot on. One word of advice..... don't eat all day before you get there! Just scrumptious.
