nice server and atmosphere.
reasonable price.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMvalueGreat value for money compared to other options - delicious food and broad menu.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great ambianceMy husband and I went to Wildfire to celebrate our anniversary. We were early for our 7:00pm reservation and were seated immediately. Our server greeted us promptly and upon hearing it was our first time at Wildfire she gave a great intro and explanation of the menu. Neither my husband nor I know much when it comes to ordering a steak and she was very helpful with explaining the different cuts. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the porterhouse. Both were delicious! We finished with a shared dessert that was so decadent. We really enjoyed our experience. We decided that Wildfire is great for a celebration or taking out of town guests rather than a spur of the moment dinner place.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleased!In town for one day and could not have been more pleased. Welcomed warmly at the door, seated promptly, friendly and knowlegeable wait staff, choices cooked to perfection, reasonably priced.
Highly recommend!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeI celebrated my birthday at Wildfire and I had a wonderful experience. The salmon, which I had not had there before, was excellent.
My boyfriend had the fried chicken special which he really enjoyed and dessert, as always, was delicious. We had a great night.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. My onlyThe food was great. My only problem is the bus boy and the water pitcher. The pitcher should never touch the rim of the glass. Also the restaurant at 12:15 on Mother's day was not crowded so there was no excuse for messing up the salad. We specifically told the waiter no blue cheese and guess what.... blue cheese. He did not come around to ask us if it was okay until we were almost finished.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly Mother's Day CelebrationMy boyfriend surprised me, my mom and his mom with an early Mother's Day celebration with dinner at Wildfire. I have been to the Wildfire location in Oakbrook in the past, but never to the Chicago location. Both of our mothers had never been to the Wildfire establishment. They were very pleased with the food, drinks, dessert and service. My mom usually finds something to complain about, and she could not find one thing. She commented that the food was delicious, the service was great, and she ordered the Martini flight and loved her choice. Wildfire was a great choice. Thank you for making our mother's day a joyous occasion.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steakhouse, try the fish too!The Wednesday night special was great - a mixed plate of spare ribs, pulled pork and beef. My wife had the halibut and she raved about it all week. Don't miss this gem. The aroma of the grill is enough to keep anyone happy.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favoritesI always think I will order something different but always end up getting the three 3 oz filets with different toppings. It never disappoints.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfire is awesome!I love Wildfire! The service is consistent and amazing and the food even better. I have to avoid gluten and this is the only restaurant that has a menu this extensive. They brought me my own GF rolls and they were delicious! We eat here every time we are in Chicago and have the same great experience.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThrow-back to 1940s supper clubWant to travel back to see what going to a supper club was like...without the smoke? Visit Wildfire! I have never been disappointed by food, ambience, service, portions, or...anything! Always a treat!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and cakeWe love this restaurant. The food is excellent. Serves are friendly and professional. They always can recommend a good wine to pair with your food. And please, save room for desserts. You can eat at wildfire the best chocolate cake in Chicago. It is reserved for special people only because it is not displayed on the dessert tray. Ask for it, please. Do not order half of the portion. Go for a big slide!!!!!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe know what we like at Wildfire,We know what we like at Wildfire, and it's definitely going to be the spinach salad, mushrooms, and filet mignon (10 oz.).

This was a nice relaxing place to spend the evening and enjoy a delicious steak and good wine for a reasonable price.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat until the endMy wife and I went to WILDFIRE TO CELEBRATE OUR 34th Wedding Anniversary. The food is delicious, the service was very good, the setting was nice, except that we were next to a group of five YUPPIES in a bench next to ours, and they got a little loud after the second bottle of wine. The decaffinated cappucino left a little bit to be desired, but the great evening was diminished because my written request for a special dessert to celebrate ur anniversary was ignored. I expected my written request to be honored. This is NOT the first Wildfire has failed to honor my request for a dessert to celebrate a special occasion.They have to do better.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinnerWe were a party of 6 on vacation. Celebrating my wife's birthday.
Bottle wines were half off on Mondays! So we indulged three bottles.
We split a large chopped salad and calamari, both amazing.
Everyone enjoyed their entrees too. My wife ordered the filet and scallops. And I had the house special filet with horseradish crust.
My wife loved the key lime pie martini so much that she had a second one too.
The service by Francesco was nothing short of five stars.
Initially, we were worried that we were undressed as we have been sight seeing and shopping, but we asked some locals and they said it was ok. We were still treated very professionally. We left an extra tip for their excellent service.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Wildfire because theWe love Wildfire because the food is consistent, always very good.m4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service.

Not horribly expensive, but very classy with a great vibe - not stuffy and quite chic. Really good food. 2 couples and my 13 yr old daughter, and we were all happy with our dinners. I had a moment of brilliance and made reservations the night before. Which ended up being really smart as when we left, the wait time was 2 hrs.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of 4 enjoyed WildfireOur group of 4 enjoyed Wildfire SOOOOOO MUCH! From the second we walked in...the table was ready, drinks were served, apps arrived quickly after that. Everyone's meal was AMAZING. The steaks were prepared to the exacting specifications of everyone present (and we weren't easy, we had from Medium Well, down to Rare). The sides were exceptional, as was the dessert. The room that we were in SEEMED like it would be really loud, but we had no issue with being able to hear one another. It was a great experience. I would highly recommend.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDo you want amazing???My Favorite Restaurant - hands down! Amazing food!

We enjoyed the everything-from soup to Wildorf salad, to entrees and sides, then dessert-door county Cherry Pie. I hate it when waitstaff asks "How does everything taste?"-and our waiter didn't ask this-extra points for him!

The waiter was attentive, but not in the way. We loved it!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you haven't experiencedIf you haven't experienced the porter house at Wildfire, you are missing out. This 30s inspired gem looks like a den right out of the god father. It's a perfectly welcoming establishment for large groups but also just the right ambiance for a special dinner for two. The wine list is a must, anything from the grill is divine, and if you are too full leave the leftovers and take the desert.. To go.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dinner at Wildfire,We had a great dinner at Wildfire, the service and food were wonderful.
