Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. Step into Wildfire, a steak and chophouse with the aura of a 1940's dinner club. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. So order a martini, listen to the music and prepare your appetite for some of the most delicious American cuisine you'll find anywhere.

This was by far one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while, and my family eats out a lot. The food was amazing, the waiters were very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu, and the ambiance was great. The seating is very private which was my favorite thing. This is officially our anniversary spot.

Food was amazing,. Had the horseradish steak, medium rare, cooked to perfection. One of the best steaks in DC area IMO. Drinks were great (CPL beers, the pineapple cocktail was enjoyed by spouse, the sangria was good, and for dessert got the agave mimosa). I actually don't like cornbread but the rest of my fam says it's the best cornbread around, and wife enjoyed mine and hers.

Without a doubt, this was our finest meal at Wildfire. Our server was outstanding. Cocktails were excellent and our prime rib was done to perfection and very tender. Thank you.

We arrived just before closing, 8pm. Restaurant was almost empty save for maybe 4 other couples. Corn bread seemed smaller than normal. Steak was just OK, not as good as I recall. The crusted fillet medallions were great though.
Got key lime pie to go, that was very good.
Cocktails were not very good, watery, and didn't taste exceptional. Perhaps the main bartender had already left.
Not the Wildfire we remember.

very enjoyable meal. low number of custoemrs was surprising as they do really maintain the necessary separation levels. Wonderful from our standpoint as it was pleasantly quiet and we could have conversation between the 4 of us.
menu is not as extensive as 'the good old days' - but still a great selection of most favorites.

I am a regular at Wildfire, been coming here to dine since its opening in 2007. Food has always been great, service is always excellent--they never disappoint.

With the Covid-19 pandemic, I have already dined here 2x since it has reopened. I feel safe and they have a great safety protocols in place. Though, the menu is limited, they still offer the best menu.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

I ordered the macadamia nut crusted halibut, which I've had before here. This time it just wasn't as tasty. Seasoning was a bit bland and the presentation left a bit to be desired.

Food took a long time to come out. It wasn’t crowded in the dining area. Maybe they had a million and one online orders. Burger was pretty dry and the Lettuce/tomato, and onion were poor quality and cut poorly. The steak was beautifully cooked. Also, we ordered a rack of ribs. They weren’t as tender, but the taste was good. I would also just come here for their steamed broccoli with the vinaigrette and salad. Beautiful wine selection as well. Waitress was very nice.

Lived in NOVA for over 30 years and this is the best restaurant I've been to in that time period. It's not terribly fancy, but the ambiance is perfect, like an upscale NY steakhouse. The prices however are very reasonable, so you get a great value here. The menu is simple as well, but still offers a nice variety, so there is something for everyone. And the food....let me say this: I've tried virtually everything on their menu, and it's all delicious. I really mean that, not just talk. Bison meatballs, bacon wrapped scallops, calamari, seafood neuberg, cedar planked salmon, their burgers, french dip, prime rib, pizza, chicken, ribs, potatoes, creamed spinach, and they have daily specials which are all superb. And the steaks...the filet mignon is my go to on this menu, simply because they never, EVER screw it up. It's a simple cut of high quality beef, cooked perfectly with a lovely char, and that's it! You can get all kinds of crusts and sauces for your steak (they have several different cuts on the menu), but if it's done right, the beef speaks for itself. To serve such high quality food so consistently (I've been there 50 or 60 times and it's always fantastic) never ceases to amaze me. I had my wedding reception at this place! And that's also due to the service; I have always been provided with exceptional, professional service, every time I have visited this location. I truly feel like a valued guest every time I eat here, and that is a tribute to the entire staff, a wonderful cadre of well trained, impeccable professionals. All in all you really can't go wrong here, the food, the setting, the service, it's really all top notch. Just remember: it's a restaurant, it's not going to change your life. If you're in a foul mood and you come here to eat, chances are you're still going to be in a foul mood when you leave, but at least someone else cooked you dinner, and it was way tastier than anything you could have made at home. Trust me!

Wildfire is always a great venue for a business meeting. It is generally quiet - at least it isn't noisy - and the wait staff is very considerate of on-going conversations. And the food and drink are always excellent!

I found the food to be very good I love the fact that they put the calorie count. Their salads are huge so a small is more than sufficient. My only issue is the inconsistency in the service. I had Carlos for this particular visit I had to track him down to get a refill on drink twice, I had to track him down to get my order, I had to track him down for my check, I had to track him down to come pick up the credit card for my check. We sat there for a good 5 to 10 minutes before they even took a drink order

The food and atmosphere were excellent! The server forgot to put in one of our side orders and we were almost done with the meal by the time it came. Our bill was $57. I gave the server our credit card and when I got it back the charge showed as $453! She had paid for another table's check with our credit card. She quickly voided that transaction and corrected it. She was very apologetic. Overall it was a good experience though and I will be back.

The large eating area in the front is more like a cafeteria, the noise level is high from other patrons but also from staff lugging around large plastic bins for dirty dishes. One large bin was placed directly behind my head while the staff member was loading the dirty dishes from an adjacent booth.
