A word from Wildfire - Lincolnshire
Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

    Been to Wildfire several times, usually perfect food & service. This time, just "pretty good." The petite filet was overcooked (ordered medium rare and came out more medium well). It happens, but our waiter didn't check back on how the food was. I would have asked for a new steak, this was a birthday dinner for my girlfriend and it was her steak. I had enough food to share & mine was done perfectly, so I gave her a lot of my food. Waiter was just ok. I was a waiter for years, I know when a mistake has been made and how it would have been fixed. I know the managers would have made it right, but I didn't want to bust the waiter over 2 bites/2mins, I've heard Lettuce is really strict on their waitstaff. Overall, still recommend.

    Food usually has a higher rating. I had the petite filet which was excellent. 2 members of the party had the New York strip special. When the waitress asked about their meal, they told her the meat was quite tough and was not up to the usual standard they have always gotten. They showed her the meat was difficult to cut. After clearing the table the waitress returned and said dessert was free. When we only ordered one to share, she also gave us the salad we had prior to dinner free of charge. I feel the restaurant went out of their way to make things "right" and this is why we continue to return to Wildfire time and time again.

    I always enjoy dining at Wildfire. That's why 5 of us reserved a table for a birthday lunch on 9/1/2014. The food was wonderful, but the service really was outstanding. Lindsey was our server and she really did a good job. She made it into a special occasion for the birthday girl & brought her a little cake and candle! We will continue to honor Wildfire with our service. Thank you.

    The food and service were very good. The ambiance was also decent, however it was a bit loud. While the setting was nice, we would have preferred a different table, as the one we had was an elevated booth we were facing another couple which created a feeling of being on display. I would strongly recommend changing the seating layout.

    I love wildfire but lately the food is sub par. I had to send my steak back as it was so tough I thought I was eating liver, that's not good when you order your steak medium. It just seems the quality has been compromised. Please look into this I always go here for family gatherings but I am going to rethink this going forward.

    When I joined Open Table I reviewed the LEY restaurants. Same basic review good food, good service, all-in-all consistent good experience. Went to Wildfire on Sunday (perhaps too late 7:30pm). Clearly english is not his first, combined with seemingly in a hurry for a 1/2 full restaurant, and a manager that doesn't care late on a Sunday equaled the absolute WORST LEY experience I have had. Let me be clear we are not 2, 3 or 10 time LEY diners we hold the gold card. I'm half afraid to try this Wildfire again, but, perhaps on a Friday or Saturday it will be back to good.

    Have dined there many many times at various locations. Have been very pleased and even have purchased gift card for people. They seated us right away which was good. However the food was dry and average. Very disappointing for Wildfire.

    Let me start by saying that we have been dining at Wildfire (Chicago and Lincolnshire) for over 15 years. It's always been a great place to bring customers, or for special occasions. Our visit on 8/18/14 was very poor. Poor service, poorly prepared steaks, and a rushed feeling.

    We celebrated our 31st anniversary at Wildfire. It was our first time at this restaurant and we were so pleased by the beautiful ambience. The dark, rich furniture and color choice of the room was very relaxing. The food was delicious and served in such an elegant presentation that you almost didn't want to eat. I cannot say enough wonderful comments about our waiter, Derrick. He went above and beyond being just the person that brought your food. From the very beginning, Derrick gave us five star treatment. He described the specials and other food choices with a superior knowledge and easiness. He was available to our every need. To top it all, Derrick surprised us with a delicious dessert to celebrate our anniversary. Wonderful evening.

    Wildfire is a consistently excellent restaurant- menu varied, food always good-great; best of all is the wait staff- our server steered us away from over ordering; was respectful of the conversation at the table so didn't intrude, but was attentive paced the dinner so we didn't feel rushed out the door every time I eat at this restaurant, I leave having had a wonderful experience

    I have dined at this particular Wildfire many times and have yet to come out of there feeling disappointed. The food and service are always stellar, and one thing I really love about it is, if you have a reservation, you usually have to wait no more than 5 minutes to be seated upon arriving at the restaurant. 10/10 would Wildfire again.
