A separate menu is presented after clearing the main course dishes.
The wine list is very extensive, arranged geographically, and contains a relatively large selection of Ontario and British Columbia labels, but the largest selection is from France, Italy, the U S A and other traditional wine producing countries.
Wine service and service in general is knowledgeable and competent.
The food is well prepared and presented, but meat portions are larger than standard in the city corresponding to high prices on the menu. Side dishes appear of the bill separately.
It is customary in North American steakhouses to serve and charge separately for side dishes, whereas seafood and veal, lamb dishes, come with vegetable and starch, i.e potatoes or rise.
Overall, Wildfire is a meat lover’s restaurant with an excellent wine list that offers competent service in a pleasant steakhouse environment.
