Wildfire Is Open In Atlanta

Recommended Posts

There are other threads about Wildfire on this site, but I want to give the Atlanta location it's own special review since I have only been to that location.

I attended a private party last week which was simply wonderful! The ambience, service and food are really something to get excited about. I can assure you there is no better trained staff on Celiac and gluten in the state of GA. Our server was great, thoughtful and even challenged my choice of vodka and said she could not guarantee is was gluten free...I knew it was and ordered it anyway but still, it was delightful that someone would go to that trouble to keep me from getting sick. I don't get really sick if I eat gluten by mistake, but she would not know that. The only downside of the evening was that for some odd reason, the vanilla ice cream supplier could not verify their ice cream was gluten-free so the flourless choc. cake was served with choc. sauce but no ice cream. The cake is good but it would be great with ice cream. The company is looking into getting some gluten free ice cream so hopefully they'll have it soon.

Today I had a business lunch at Wildfire with two gluten eaters who enjoyed the fresh bread upon arrival. Someone came out to offer me a gluten free bun but I knew it was KK brand which I don't like so I passed when the confirmed it was indeed from KK. My entree was a mediterranean shrimp salad.....it was not only beautifully prepared, but it was one of the best shrimp salads I've had anywhere and I'm from the Florida coast so that's saying something. I had at least 40% of what they brought to box up and have tonight as an app. with dinner. This was not a shrimp salad with mayo, it was skewers of shrimp with onion that was grilled and set on lovely field greens that were dressed with some delightful yogurt mediterranean dressing. It also had a generous amount of fresh goat cheese in it. Please note: they will accomodate those with other allergies as well, ask your server for help. My meal today was one of the best lunches I've had in the US since my dx. If you live in Atlanta, you definitely need to try this place, assuming you are comfortable eating out which should be the case if you took time to read this thread. If you come to Chrimtmas shop in Atlanta from TN or SC, you should make a point to go here as well. They are in the parking lot of Perimeter Mall, near the JC Penney side.

If you make a reservation, tell them how many in your party will be dining gluten free so they make sure you server knows it upon arrival to the table. Their site is www.wildfirerestaurant.com and when you click on reservations, you are sent to opentable.com where you get free points for every reservation you make. When you get to 2000 points, they send you a $20 gift check from opentable.com to be spent at any opentable.com restaurant. Most places allow you 100 points per visit. I have no affiliation with either Wildfire or opentable.com, except that I think they are both great! Enjoy!

I would say it's easy to spend at least $30 on dinner if you have an app/dinner or dinner/dessert. You can get a burger with a KK bun and fries for much less I think. Lunch is an amazing value. We still have some greens left over after both having salad left overs with dinner.

Dinner reservations are highly recommended at night but not so much for lunch as of now anyway. Also, if you like ice cream and they don't have it with the cake, ask them to consider getting some for the future. If we all ask about it, eventually they're going to have it.

I should have noted above that this place specializes in meat and even though they have seafood and I loved my shrimp, their cedar plank salmon and bay scallop entrees both come without much seasoning and no sauce. I would stick with meat for dinner in the future. I can make salmon at home as good as theirs but I can't make the chops/steaks as well. Their cuts are primo from what I understand. My next meal there will be a steak of some kind. Oh and if you like potatoes and eat dairy, don't miss the au gratin potatoes.....I almost cried they were so good. You will be hard pressed to find any other place in town that has this type of dish not made with flour. I know...I've been searching for about 10 months myself :D .
