Diner Reviews
  • "We went for our anniversary. We loved the restaurant. The server was very nice and friendly. the food was extraordinary. I asked for a well done steak and when it came medium well they took it back and they offered us a free desert and two cappuccinos! The service was great! I would recommend this place and I would definitely go again!"

  • "For a restaurant to have consistent crowds after all its time in the same spot and all the many restaurants in the area that have already come and gone, it has to have the right recipe. Wildfire does. The steak was cooked exactly right for two of us who dined, the service was excellent and knowledgeable and we never felt rushed or hassled."

  • "We split a salad and entrée, along with a bottle of wine. I think our waiter was not very happy that we each didn't get our own entrees, since that meant our bill wouldn't be as high. Our silverware was all taken after our salad, and we had to wait 5 minutes after receiving our entrée to get silverware. THe entrée itself (3 small beef filets) was a bit too rich - but that was probably our fault for straying from the regular. There were 3 steaks, with stuffed potato, cheese, and something else. Got that with au gratin potatoes, but it was way too rich for what we were looking for. Probably should have stuck with the regular filet."

  • "My wife and I had a very enjoyable experience here as we celebrate our 1st anniversary. The service was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive to detail and making sure my wife (who is 7 months pregnant) was comfortable and had everything she wanted. Our Filet Medallions were cooked to perfection. The only thing that was slightly off was that the calamari was just "decent". And that is me being really picky. Everything else was wonderful. We will be coming back soon."

  • "I don't have any specific complaint regarding the food. It was not bad, however not really memorable. The ambiance and service was nice. I felt the pace of the service was too fast. We did not finish our appetizer and the food runner brought our entrees. My wine was served after I was mostly finished with my entree. The store was not crowded as we were seated at 5:30. Too many memorable places to dine in Chicago, do not think I will return."

  • "This was my first time at the downtown Chicago location and it did not disappoint. My date and I were seated upon arrival, greeted promptly and all the specials were provided. The waiter gave us enough time to pick all of our choices and drinks. Please try the Stormy Night Martini it was really really good. One thing i did notice was waiters walked around with dessert trays showing the actual products which make it easier to choose. I will be visiting this location again."

  • "The Parmesan crusted chops was unbeatable! Food was cooked perfect and delicious! Hopefully will be back one day again. From out of state! The whole place had a bonfire smell; due to the open wood burning oven. Loved that too, but maybe not for some."

  • "Outstanding dining experience. The food, atmosphere, ambiance, and service was excellent. A definite gem. We even purchased some of their vinaigrette to take home, it was so good. Many good choices on the menu, we had a hard time choosing. We will definitely visit again."

  • "I took my wife here for our 2 year anniversary dinner, as I thought it would be special since we had our rehearsal dinner at this location. We have eaten here several times besides these two dinners, and they never fail to provide a wonderful evening. The food is always the best. The service is incredible. Not once have I left with any doubt about being back again. They even came out with a free cake for our anniversary which really sealed the deal. If you are looking for a fantastic meal, wonderful service, and a great night, come to Wildfire."

  • "It is unfortunate that Opentable only lets you rate up to 5 stars. Wildfire Chicago continues to be a notable hotspot for all types of guests/parties. From the moment you walk in to your last step out the door, management and staff treat you like family. Tonight I had one of their most popular salads, The Chopped Salad. You must try it!! Until next time. Jonathan~"

  • "Celebrated son's 37th b'day with party of 9. Arrived really early to a PACKED restaurant but was graciously seated in the time to set up the table."

  • "We had a reservation. We were told two tables were being cleaned and we would be called shortly. They gave us one of their beepers. We waited and waited and the beeper never went off. We finally went back to the host's desk and were told that they tried to beep us but the beeper must have been broken. Either they lied or they gave us a broken beeper, either way we were not seated until almost 30 minutes after our reservation time. Then our server was pretty inattentive after that. The food, however, was very good. I had the prime rib, which was excellent. I also like the lemony vinaigrette on the broccoli. Blueberry pie dessert was also very good."

  • "My pet peeve is when the waiter or bus boy refill my water glass and touch the ewer to it. The ewer has touched other glasses and I don't want someone else's spit in my water. The restaurant is too noisy and the tables are too close together."

  • "We had a very nice dinner and experience. The food was prepared t o order and special attention was given to my wife's food allergies. It's not often we can feel relaxed and enjoy a dinner."

  • "I took a friend here for her birthday. She loved the steak (had to ask for a side of au jus though, as it did not come with any). I had a great salad and a few vegetable sides. The waitress was very accommodating and helped me make a vegan meal. They also brought her out an adorable cake with candle."

  • "You can't ever go wrong with wildfire. They're consistently good. The only issue I had this time around is that my porterhouse steak was actually a bit on the tough side which you don't expect in that cut of meat. The flavor was very good and cooked perfectly so I ate it. Great service, food is always tasty."

  • "My family took me to Wildfire to celebrate my birthday. I've dined here before, so I knew what to expect. However, this was my first time trying the ribeye steak. I usually get the lamb chops, but was like since it's my birthday let's try something different. Oh..am I glad I did. The steak was so delicious. It is much cheaper than other steakhouses, but don't think because it was cheaper that meant the quality of the meat went down. That definitely was not the case here. The steak was tender, juicy and had a lot of flavor. They put au jus on the steak, which made it very moist. Not dry like "Gib???"..Oops I mean at that other place. LOL! The waiter even gave me a brownie treat on the house for my birthday. Overall, a great bday dinner!"

  • "This is a very good steak house with excellent service and a nostalgic atmosphere. It is also great value compared to some of the very overpriced steak restaurants in Chicago. We liked the variety of quality food offered, the wine and beer "flights" (which allow you to taste a mixture of beers or wines) and the excellent and attentive service."

    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We spent hours researching restaurants for our anniversary dinner in the city. Wildfire showed up on at least 2 of Chicago's best steak lists. We had the calamari appetizer (our usual favorite, nothing impressive here), Caesar salad (good but forgettable) and the seafood trio and porterhouse steak. Both dinners were cooked perfectly, but not anything we couldn't find somewhere else. The sample dessert tray was unappealing in appearance and options. Our server was excellent. Other diners appeared to be enjoying the barbecue chicken and ribs. Might be worth the price for a sandwich for lunch but we certainly won't return for a special occasion dinner."

  • "This restaurant was fantastic. The food and drinks were outstanding and so was the service. We would go back in a heartbeat! They even provided a complimentary desert for our anniversary, which was above and beyond."

The second we walked in we were seated immediately! I like that! That scores big time with us! This was my first time here, and definitely will be returning! I would give it a 10!!!!"
