What we're all about!

With an exceptional ability to express passion and creativity through food and cooking, chef and owner Karl Firla will take you on a journey with his inspired menu at Oscillate Wildly. For him, the kitchen is a playground for the adventurous, a place to continually evolve through a better understanding of product and technique. Always looking to surpass yesterday's outcome, Karl is driven to learn and develop, not only his skills but his understanding.

Product sustainability is of the utmost importance. Karl works closely with producers and suppliers to ensure the products he works with can reach their fullest potential, without compromising their integrity. Karl believes in working smarter, and his menu is constantly adapted to accommodate and capitalise on seasonal changes and availability. With an end-product that has benefited from his own unique process of vision, development, failure and evolution, Karl takes his guests on an edible odyssey that is not easily forgotten.

With an extensive knowledge and a passion for food and wine, our team are here to guide you through your evening at Oscillate Wildly. Backed by a wealth of experience in the industry, our team is always on hand to answer any questions about the menu and the wine.


From the world's best-known terroirs to new world regional specialities, each wine on our list has been specially selected to accompany our menu. Our list features wines from smaller, boutique producers who we believe are leading the field in both traditional and modern wine-making techniques.

Wine matching is available for $90 or choose from our wine list designed by our Sommelier. Oscillate Wildly is a fully licensed restaurant.
