About Wildfire Restaurant Wellington
For over 16 years, Wildfire's dedicated guests continue to enjoy the restaurants extraordinary hospitality, exceptional service and outstanding food.
We offer the traditional Brazilian Churrasco, an exquisite a la carte menu along with a world class cocktail list and an extensive wine selection.
Exceptional service- all of the staff were amazing and so attentive. The meat was the highlight- all cuts were cooked to perfection, we had a great experience. Next time we will save room for dessert as they looked delicious.
Last night I had my birthday at Wildfire. We were a group of 12 people - I was aware that because it was a Saturday night, we would have longer wait time but everyone was aware and fine with that. The waiter we were assigned called Jess was incredible, attentive and friendly. The food was top notch also. I would have rated the evening 5 stars if not for multiple issues such as the servers giving food to the wrong people, the staff telling my guest that there were not nuts in the food when we could all clearly see almonds on the vegetables, guests being asked to pay for meals that were not theirs and having to contest the bill and problems at the end of the night. At the end of the evening, there was a group of 5 of us left to pay the remainder of the bill. Unfortunately, we were left waiting for around 20 minutes while two staff members argued about our bill. Multiple times, staff tried to overcharge my guests AND to make matters worse these two staff members couldn't seem to agree on the solution to the billing. As a result, one of my guests was left having to pay for three meals when it was only her and her husband she was paying for. After 20 mins we were finally told that everything was paid and on our way to the door, we were then told to come back because there were still outstanding items. It was extremely irritating to have to stand and wait for the staff AGAIN to argue about the billing while my tired guests had to wait another 10 mins. All we wanted is to pay and leave, but couldn't. My guests and I paid a total of over 1200 for the entire evening but many felt cheated because they weren't sure that they were actually charged correctly. All the issues at the restaurant left a sour note on the entire evening. We are unlikely to return to restaurant in the future.
Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience. We generally do one bill per party to avoid any confusion, we did make an exception on your request and it did cause some inconvenience as part of the bill was left. We took some time to make sure that everything is reconciled and have provided receipts to every guest who paid. Please do let us know if there is any discrepancy and we will be happy to address that with you. Once again, apologies for any inconvenience.
Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the service. The staff forgot about us and we were waiting for any service. We waited for at least 45 minutes to even have our order taken. Language difficulties with staff probably contributed to poor understanding of the menu. Limited vegetables and not hot. I’ve been to restaurants in Sth America and expected more from this restaurant for the price. Not worth the money sorry
Our sincerest apologies that you did not enjoy your evening. We would never want to leave our guests with such feeling, we hope you will give us another opportunity and we will make sure that you get the true Wildfire experience.

A party of 40 and 40 extremely satisfied customers. A few are already planning on coming back. The staff are awesome.
We were so happy to be part of your special celebrations. And even more delighted to hear that everyone enjoyed their Wildfire experience. We look forward to welcoming you back at Wildfire soon.
Our waitress, the wait staff and managers were all so attentive, friendly and professional. There were many Brazilian staff which made the experience more authentic and allowed us to have a go at using our Portuguese! The service, food was all excellent and consistently served hot and fresh. We enjoyed the caipirinha cart and felt that although there were a few groups in the restaurant, there was plenty of space and we still had a lot of privacy. We felt that the staff went out of their way to ensure that we had the best experience possible. Thank you so much for making our anniversary so special. We cannot wait to come back! Our only feed-forward would be to have the front doors closed or look at options for the entrance way, as it was a cold night, every time the door opened, we felt the cold wind.. but that is a common Wellington problem! Thanks again for an unforgettable evening!
Wow, wow and wow! A lovely up market looking restaurant with a lovely comfortable feel. Delicious food, great service & a wonderful experience had by all. Would suit all group sizes from couples to large groups. A must do if you love dining out. We’ll be back for sure.

We are delighted that you enjoyed Wildfire experience, and a big thanks for recommending us. Team Wildfire looks forward to welcoming you back soon.
Had a wonderful time, we were not rushed or prompted to take our seating at the restaurants convenience, which allowed us to spend a bit of time at the in house bar before settling into a wonderful taste experience
At Wildfire our effort is to let our guests design their experience, from the food choices to atmosphere, bar or dining room, private or busy; we are delighted that you enjoyed your Wildfire experience and look forward to welcoming you back again.
Fantastic night out thanks so much!!!

fantastic food, atmosphere and wine. We were only going to have the BBQ but upgraded to include the desert after seeing your lovely desert trolley. I was soo impressed I would like to book our company christmas lunch with you. Will you be running any promotions?
Thanks very much for your kindest review and we can't wait to welcome your whole team over Christmas.
Atmosphere: We were almost alone in the restaurant so were surprised to be seated where everytime the front door opened, we were hit with a cold blast of air. Considering the empty restaurant, we were then really surprised when the next group to arrive was seated right next to us. Drinks: one of us had a very nice red wine, child had a mocktail which she loved and the other two adults had a “to be shared” cocktail which was okay. Huge amounts of ice in the cocktails which we needed to fish out. Tapas: really nice and good portion size BBQ: all chicken was dry and all the pork was moist. While the lamb and beef were tasty, all of it was “well done” which was a bit annoying. The polenta chips were incredible and we all wished these had come round again. Service: all the staff were friendly and helpful. It was a bit odd that our primary server talked to me only (and called me “madam” which is not usual in nz). Price: our bill for three adults and one child was just shy of $300. Overall: while it was nice, I’m not sure that if rush back. I think for the cost, there were other places we’d want to try out.
