You know what you're going to get with a Brazilian theme. The food was OK and the ambiance so-so but the service was impersonal and the meat servers were certainly not engaged with what they were doing. Hey, you go to one of these places to have various meats brought to your table, engage in some dialog with the server... More

Really good food and atmosphere. Our waiter John was lovely! Only annoying thing was table sitting times- you have to leave by 8 for the room to be free for next setting. I unstained it helps with table covers and BBQ cooking, but we wanting to hang out at our table a little longer :) Also some extra vegetables would... More

Decided to take my guests here for a meal as it is a tradition to me as a returning visitor to Auckland 3 times a year. I don't know what has happened since the last time but the meat was terrible,tough and certainly not worth it. After mentioning this to the manager she just shrugged it off. Unacceptable.

Decided to order from the 'a la carte' menu as opposed to having the buffet. Ordered starters and main courses for three people. Bit of a delay and then starters and main courses all arrived together!! Staff looked surprised and perplexed when we insisted that we wanted starters followed by main course. Had to get manager over to explain -... More

I came here in December with a big group, the layout was a bit clustered, the waiters had to squeeze between our chairs and the glass shelf that holds the top wines, other than that, the food was great! The waiters came around with the meat straight off the rotating skews to dish onto your plate (kind of like yum... More

Visited this upmarket eatery recently looking for some less formal dining. As a tourist I didn't realise Wildfire has the full on Brazilian experience and the more casual bistro menu to the side. We opted for the latter and after some initial confusion were seated in the "other side" of the restaurant. Service was friendly but slow for the casual... More

I went here at the insistence of a friend, who is Brazilian. We were not disappointed. I arrived earlier than the rest of the party and so had a drink overlooking the harbour. Auckland harbour my not have the opera house, but it is a beautiful location. For all it was very busy, there was no sense of being rushed.... More

High quality food, excellent and caring service, inside and outside seating. The CHURRASCO dinner started at 5pm. I arrived in the restaurant around 5.30pm and was one of the first dinner customers. They didn't let me wait until more customers arrived. They served directly every meat for me. Very caring service. I took the SPECIAL CHURRASCO for $49.95 NZD. It... More

Sitting at an outside table having a pre dinner drink here is good (unless someone is ruining the fresh sea air by smoking). Snacks and meals are available but my leg of roast lamb was overcooked and lacked balance, being meat only. My companions were happy with their small burgers. Drinks are expensive, whilst meals are reasonable. Nice place to... More
