Great dinner. Beet salad and calamari were really good. Great steak.
Lights were too bright in the dining room. I asked to have them dimmed and they did!
Was here for lunch. Everything was first rate. Restaurant was very quiet, more from being in an off-the-beaten-path location than food or ambience. We had salads and steak sandwiches and all was as expected. Have used tis restaurant for business meetings at dinner and lunch and never disappointed.
A pre Leafs/Penguins game dinner. Service was concientous / impeccable. We ordered 2 rib steaks medium rare. 1 steak was cooked perfectly medium rare the other was medium in some areas and well done in other areas. I chalk this up to the inconsistency on how the steak was butchered. Some areas were thicker than others. We sent this steak back for obvious reasons only to receive a 2nd steak that was thinner and cooked rare. Not a great food experience. Resto is tired / showing it’s age. Time to retool!
Nothing really wrong with the place. It was just mediocre. The food was meh. My steak was cooked in peppercorns, which is not my preference, but was ok.
the place was empty on a night of PDAC. So, if you need a quiet place with no crowds, here you go.
Service was just fine.
This was our second time at Wildfire, the "Signature Cesar" is classic, the main was perfect and the wine was great. Wonderful hosts, will definitely return soon.
Food was very good unfortunately the service was beyond non existent. First and last time cause of the service
My wife and I have been dining here since the opening but on regular basis last year and now.
Our experiences all have been suburb including tonight. My porterhouse was cooked to perfection and the mushroom ragu is to die for. My wife enjoying her ribs tonight was very pleased. The wine selection is fantastic and we enjoyed ours as always. As for the service from the hold the door open from when you arrive to the pleasant conversations and impeccable attention to our needs we applaud the management and staff. Thank you for another great date night.
The food was good but the restaurant was pretty empty. We did get the main dining table in the VIP section which was very nice of them. I also felt as though the value was great. I added a lobster tail for $10. Wow. Needed a better vibe in there though. Lacked action.
The food was very good. Just the lamb is not recommended. 2 out of 5 ate it and said it was pretty bad.
Food and service is excellent. It is a hotel restaurant (inside the Cosmo) so the ambience is not as good as an exclusive restaurant would be.
I would recommend this place for anyone looking for great quality food.
Absolutely terrible service. The restaurant was practically empty and we were treated as if we didn’t exist. It took them 20 minutes just to take our drinks order. Another 20 minutes for an order of bread. We had to ask for things twice and the food was mediocre at best. This location is the opposite to their north york chain. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. The whole experience was a turnoff.
Wonderful atmosphere! We celebrated my boyfriends birthday and he said the steak was fantastic! Myself being a vegetarian they made a fettuccine Alfredo which was wonderful as well.
I would definitely recommended this restaurant 100%
The place was very clean and well decorated. The food was excellent and the service was great. The gentleman who served us was very polite. We plan to return there in the near future.
We went during the winterlicious. The food is not too bad , the restaurant is quiet ( I think due to the fact that it was super bowl weekend ). This is not a sport bar restaurant... but I like the ambiance. Able to talk to my friend without yelling :)
My girlfriend ordered her new york steak meadium well, it came medium rare. We addressed the waitress to please send the steak back. By the time she got her steak back, mine was cold and we both lost our apeitite after the long wait. Not to mention the second time the steak came back, it was as requested, but dry. $175 bill, expected better.
Disappointed with quality and service for the price. Steaks were not done properly and my order was messed up. No apology or compensation.
The service was outstanding, and we had a great time. Steak was great, but the side dishes weren't quite as tasty as some competitors.
Great place. We had excellent server and the food was prepared perfectly. The value was excellent for the area.
The ambience of a budget restaurant and prices of a premium restaurant.
You have to exit the restaurant to use the washroom.
They ran out of Maker's Mark after the first drink and said have only a shot left.
Appetizers were served to the wrong people and were very ordinary.
NY Steak was not good. After eating at the Keg this seemed like a cheap restaurant steak.
Dinner plate presentation was bad.
To make it worse the steak costs more than the Keg.
Why would somebody pay a premium price for the entres which is pretty ordinary in a restaurant with the ambience of a regular bar?
At $130/ person you can dine at STK which has a fantastic ambience and awesome food.
Dessert was good but again for a premium price compared to the Keg.
Very disappointing first visit...
This would be 5 star except that we were the only table seated between 5 and 7:30pm. The restaurant was otherwise empty except for a couple at the bar for a bit. It's a great place too bad it was dead.
This is a small hidden gem in the downtown core of Toronto that nobody ever seems to go to. The food is consistently very good and the price point is reasonable.
They have a surprisingly good wine list for a little off the beaten path place!!
An excellent restaurant in the financial district.
Based on the fact that it's a hotel restaurant, I was not expecting much. I was happily surprised. Definitely would go back.
I've been to this place a few times now and will definitely go back! It's slightly more expensive than the typical steakhouse but the food is so amazing it's definitely worth visiting!
Service was completely terrible. We had to flag down people whenever we had questions, nobody checked on us. Food was great.
Poor service took over 1 hr to her our starter. Server forgot second drink
Loved the dinner, the carols moist chocolate cake was dry and crusty.
The food was very good. Steaks were cooked exactly as they were ordered. I tested the Sweet Potato fries and they were excellent. (Very salty...in a good way. )
Out waitress took our orders and proceeded to leave all the menues on the table, under my elbow. They stayed there until we finished our appetizer.
During my main course I dined while my beer glass stood empty for a good 10-15 minutes. I eventually gave in and asked her over to order a drink. By this time I no longer desired another beer.
The portions were appropriate to my appetite, which allowed room for desert. As a general rule, I do not like booth seating, especially in a “nice” resturant. We were seated in a booth, and I found it to be firm and comfortable, compared to the standard family resturant.
Great spot, great staff, great locale. Pre-Leaf game (5 minute walk to ACC)
Wildfire was an enjoyable experience. The food was well prepared and delivered in a timely fashion. Our waitress well positive and well mannered. We were a few minutes late, but called ahead to notify. The call was well received and polite.
Overall, I would recommend a smart casual dinner at Wildfire.
So good! Went here for a spontaneous date night and was pleasantly surprised. Not very busy on the night we went - Saturday at 6:30. Had the lamb special and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. The ribs also smelled delicious
Servers tried hard but too many errors and challenges made the meal forgettable. Won’t go back.
Celebrating after Toronto Marathon!!!
Food and service good, atmosphere somewhat lacking.
Great dinner. Love coming to this restaurant. Portions are large, but great to share with a date. Unfortunately this time our calamari was a bit over cooked (rubbery), but still tasted great. Their rack of lamb was delicious as always.
When we got there, it was very empty. We sat at a table beside the wine rack. The decor was nice. Our waiter was nice except we didn't get much service. She only droped by 5 times out of the two hours we were there. Ordering and having to wait over an 45 minutes to have our first dish on the table is unacceptable. We had the escogar first and it was tasty. We waited another 20 minutes to have our main course Red eye steak with mash potato and wildfire ribs with fries and vegetables. My partner asked for medium well and it was medium well but it was totally dry. Not worth $37. The Ribs were really good but the fries are really darn SALTY. There was literally a layer of sea salt on it and absolutely F*** up. I mean how do you screw up fries?!?!! I had to ask for a new dish of fries without salt and they happily obliged. Overall the bill was $75 + tip. I don't recommend it. Please go somewhere else like Nandos around the corner.
Great place for conversation over a delious meal. Didn’t feel rushed. Just looked a bit award for the servers at times due to a long table nestled behind our table.
I didn't realize that Wildfire was located in the Cosmopolitan Hotel when I made the reservation; I usually shy away from hotel restaurants. I was surprised how quiet the restaurant was when we arrived; only 3 or 4 other tables at 6:30 on a Monday evening.
However, the service was great and the food was outstanding.
We started with the Caesar salad which was made with charred romaine and roasted garlic dressing. The salad tasted amazing! Crispy croutons, smoky lettuce and a great dressing.
Dinner consisted of an 8oz New York and the Veal Chop. Although both entrees were slightly overcooked, they tasted GREAT! Served with perfectly cooked red pepper slices, brussel sprouts and choice of potato (we chose roasted and fries and the fries were piping hot and perfectly cooked).
My girlfriend and I shared a Creme Brule for dessert and it was delectable. The smoothest, creamiest Creme Brule I have tasted.
I will definitely return to Wildfire the next time I am in Toronto.
Went on a Saturday night, and it was relatively quiet and the ambiance was good. If you struggle to find it, it's in the cosmopolitan hotel and the exterior signage is slightly misleading: go in the revolving doors. The food itself was moderate. The crabcakes were good, but a little oily. My companion had the lamb, which was interesting with a mustard crust, but somewhat over-cooked. My Porterhouse was definitely overcooked (medium rare came out as medium). Desert was fantastic (mango sorbet, carrot cake).
I have been here often in the last 2 years or more and been highly impressed. This time my medium rare steak was blue, my heated caesar salad was cold inside and burned outside, my grilled veg were burned beyond recognition. Service was still impeccable but I fear that the kitchen has taken a bad turn. Hopefully this is a hiccup, as Wildfire is one if my favourite spots.
