A word from Wildfire - Chicago
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.Continued

  • "wildfire was just right for my 20-year old grandson and me. After working in Chicago and living in my apartment all summer, he was headed back to New England the next night. He had the very good skirt steak - I enjoyed two appetizers and a glass of House red wine. The table server was perfect - And she took our picture...."

  • "The first time we tried Wildfire we were very disappointed. But we decided to try it again for our son's birthday dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The drinks were refreshing. I highly recommend the berry cherry mojito. Our meals were delicious! From the New York strip steak to the Ellington combo platter. Don't forget the redskin mashed potatoes they are a buttery treat. This will be one of our go to places for special occasions. As the price point for the dinner selections are a bit high."

  • "I've been to Wildfire before, but this topped even previous experiences. The prime rib I had was cooked and seasoned perfectly. My nephew had the combo plate of pork chop, lamb chop and filet. They were all so good he couldn't pick a favorite of the three. Service was excellent with staff being attentive without being intrusive. Looking forward to a return trip soon."

  • "Lunch at Wildfire was very good. They are accommodating for menu modifications and have good gluten-free options. Spinach salad with chicken was excellent with plenty of meat and cheese. French dip was also excellent. The servers were very good but just a little slower than we expected. Highly recommend this river north restaurant."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Actually, everyone should eat here. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, service, and restaurant overall. The prices are very fair for the amount and quality of food you get and anyone who requires a gluten free diet needs to put Wildfire on their very "short list". The gluten free mac & cheese is better than the regular! The bone-in ribeye was delicious as was the peppercorn filet. Both perfectly cooked! The bacon wrapped scallops are delicious, I just wish there were more of them. The current Wildfire Craft Beer, a White Pale Ale was delicious as was my wife's mojito and the wines we tried. The service was top notch and this was just a genuinely nice experience. Better than we had at Ditka's for significantly less!"

  • "My wife and I love the Wildfire and we try to go whenever we are in Chicago. We last dined there on Thursday, 8/7. The aroma when you enter is wonderful and probably some how artificially manufactured. But we love it. I am gluten intolerant. The restaurant has done a wonderful job of providing appropriate food and our waiter, as usual, was most accommodating. Terrific service. My wife and I split a fillet and had two (or three?) side dishes along with it. We usually love one of their salads before but declined this time since we had a large salad at lunch. We enjoyed well-made cocktails before and enjoyed the activity and crowd (a bachelorette party no less) around us."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "With hundreds of restaurants in Chicago, Wildfire is the place I return to for a dining experience I know I will enjoy. It begins as I walk through the door and am overwhelmed with the delicious smells from the wood burning oven. I highly recommend Wine Flight #3, the Beet Salad, and Mushroom Crusted Pork Chops. Delicious!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I've been going to Wildfire for years, and it is always a satisfying experience! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars this visit was because we were seated at a table that was way too large for our group. We could hardly hear each other across the table, and there was so much extra room that you could stretch your arms wide and not touch the person next to you! There were plenty of other open tables, so we moved over to a more appropriate-sized one. That being said, the food is great, service is friendly, and we ordered a birthday cake off the menu that was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions! My friend had her bridal shower at this particular location a few years ago, and it was classy and fun!"

  • "For it to be our first time at wildfire it was special! Our waiter was very polite and generous! He made sure we where informed of the specials and made my wife and I feel comfortable. The food was amazing! The taste of the food was excellent! We left very happy!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, the service staff took great care of us. The 1940s atmosphere and environment work very well, with thick carpet and fine wood finishes dampening crowd noise so that tables don't have to yell over each other to converse. Add to this some very fine food and you have a night out to remember."

  • " Me wife is Gluten Free and here menue options were great. The gluten free Mac and Cheese as a side is a great choice. The service was great and friendly. We had our teenagers with us and they enjoyed the meal immensely. My steak was ok but I expected better in Chicago. Bottom line- good restaurant and great for gluten free folks."

  • "My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday. The waitress was very knowledgable on the menu and wine list. There are many different options to choose from if you don't want red meat. I have to recommend that everyone tries the Martini Flight. I never drink vodka, but these taste testers were very unique flavors. The food was delicious and cooked exactly how I asked. A small cake with a candle was even brought out for my boyfriend. 100% would recommend this to anyone, and I would go back soon for sure."

  • "Recently my family and I chose to dine at wildfire chicago, we wanted to eat around 7:00 however the next availible was 10:30 so off we went to another place. the following day we went on line to make another attempt to visit and were successful in placing a 6:45 reservation. When we arrived we were told that they are on schedule and it would be a minute. to my surprise we had been seated quickly and had appetizers on the table shortly there after, It was at that time the taste and presentation of the food had taken the tables conversation over. Everything we ordered was fabulous to the degree with which you always hope for but never seem to achieve. So thank you Wildfire for making our dining experience a tremendous one."

  • "We dined here a couple nights ago and really enjoyed our experience. I have specific needs when I eat out due to my gluten-free diet. Our server was extremely accommodating. He brought us a gluten free bread option to go with our appetizer as well as gluten free bread for the whole group. We were also offered a free appetizer after we were seated in the wrong section. Overall, we really enjoyed our time there."

  • "It was the last night of our vacation and I wanted it to end on a perfect note. My two teenaged kids and I dined at the downtown Chicago location. We were seated right at our reservation time. Service the entire evening was flawless and the food was amazing. Lobster chowder was chock full of seafood, hot breads were great and our steaks and salmon were prepared just right. The au gratin potatoes were heavenly and the dessert delish. Even though we did not order any alcohol our server was just as attentive to us as she was to other "higher ticket" tables. We had a wonderful experience here. We have been to many of the other "famous" steak houses in Chicago and Wildfire was even better. I was impressed and will return on our next trip to Chi."

  • "I loved Wildfire! A friend recommended it to me to take my girlfriend to for her birthday and we were more than thrilled. The food was great, even though it was a little pricey, and we loved that the atmosphere was fancy but not strict. You don't have to know exactly which fork goes where and how to properly drink from your glass to be here even though you might feel like you have to. We loved the theme of the place and our waiter was great. Overall--love! We recommend the filet mingon, ribs, and berry crumble!"
