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

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I was very pleased with the food and the service. The manager and the server went out of their way to help my son who is highly allergic to peanuts, fish, dairy and eggs. We will definitely be back soon."

  • "Came in for a birthday dinner. We had a group of 5 for 8pm. We requested and earlier dinner at 7 last minute and they happily accommodated out request. Alan was an excellent server and was happy to split the bill 4 ways. Birthday dessert was brought out and everyone was very satisfied with dinner :)"

  • "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!"

  • "I Like WILDFIRE for their FRESH Cooked to order lamb, calamari, and mushrooms. The Erie location is the best."
    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."

  • "My Girlfriend and I had reservations for last Saturday Night, before going to see Ringo Starr @ the Chicago Theater! Everything was perfect & went as planned for us! The valet! 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!!!!"

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Food was ok. Steaks were cooked properly to our requests but service staff was trained inappropriately. I was given the incorrect side and they came back with the correct full side order however they took back the incorrect one and made us wonder if it was then given to someone else. It had already been placed on our table. I had a petite filet and it was not flavorful as other steaks I had had in similarly priced restaurants. It should taste good on its own without any sauces or additions. The bussers were anxious to remove our plates which was a bit too much. They were also more anxious about getting tables cleared than about giving diners the right of way as they are walking between tables. Server was ok."

  • "We didn't know what to expect but once again Tripadvisor knocks it out of the park. The atmosphere was both casual and semi-formal. The food was superb. Cedar plank salmon was outstanding and the petite filet was cooked PERFECTLY!!! Wait staff were exceptional. Can't say enough about this place. Will definitely go again next time we are in Chicago."

  • "Took my cousin who has a gluten allergy there for dinner, and she was blown away by a full menu of choices that fit her needs. The rest of the group's food was also fantastic, as was the service. Definitely going into the restaurant rotation."

  • "We met out daughters in the city to celebrate Father's Day together at Wildfire. Each of us ordered something different and it was so good we ended up sharing samples with each other so we could all enjoy the goodness. The Ribeye Medallions Al Forne was absolutely amazing and the one everyone probably wished they had ordered. Wildfire is a new family favorite!"

  • "I thought the waiter was quite rude. The prime rib was like chewing on leather and it was way underdone."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Felt like a special occasion! We were seated immediately in one of the banquettes so we could look out over the dining room -- great people watching! Justine was awesome -- professional and friendly; flawless service. We ordered two of the Signature Combination Plates: "Club" Petite Filet and Potato Crusted Scallops, and the "Ellington": Parmesan Crusted New York Strip and Garlic Shrimp. Side by side, you don't even want to bother with the New York Strip -- the Petite Filet is so much more tender and flavorful. Exquisite steak! Loved the grilled shrimp. The Key Lime Pie was the best I've ever had -- not the usual triangle shaped wedge. I wish I had ordered the Signature Martini Flight -- next time! The whole evening was a real treat!"

  • "We both enjoyed our wine flights (which were good but not amazing) and ate surf and turf. The meet was cooked perfectly and my shrimp were full of flavor. We had excellent service and overall really enjoyed our night."

  • "We always go back to Eildfire for special occasions and tend to order the same dishes. The baby back ribs were not as good as I remembered this time, but the side dishes, drinks and service mearly made up for it. We love the signature flight martins. Fantastically made and delicious!"

  • "This was my first time at Wildfire and I could not have been more pleased. The service was exceptional. Our server recommended several items that we ordered and they were fabulous. Crusted halibut and the filet. Can't say enough good things about our experience, the atmosphere was also great. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Chicago."

  • "We go to Wildfire at least once a month and I write great reviews. To be fair Monday they were off their game. Yesterday's dinner special tasted like it. The birthday desert was at the party yesterday as well. I love Wildfire but for reviews to be meanful they have to be honest. We will avoid Mondays!"

  • "I have dined here before. I took my dad and my children and they all raved how good the food was. The only setback we had was the delay in receiving the check. I know it was Father's Day so we were understandable. But the waiter was great and the food was superb."

  • "Did not like the area we were seated in.....prefer the booth.... My fiance's ordered his steak medium well but it came out medium with a very very red center. He did not want to return so not to delay his father's day dinner. He had a tummy ache one hour later The asparagus was overdone. My salmon looked more like a half portion serving rather than a full compare to the table next to us. But the appetizer spinach dip, mash potatoes and half slab our son had was very good. Our Mother's day dinner was much better than this visit but hoping our next would be better because we do like the restaurant. Big thumbs up to our server, she was attentive but did notice we were not pleased....."

  • "We have been to Wildfire - Chicago several times, but this time the service was disappointing. Plates were sitting for quite a while on the table before the waiter finally came around to clear them, when in the past they would be cleared right away. Food was not as good as it has been in the past, and it seemed to take longer than normal to even get service"

  • "The waitstaff are really friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The supper club option is really great since we were a large group family style worked perfectly. Overall it was great experience however, the seating arrangement was really awkward. It was either we were all squished in a round table or we had to do a round table and a small square table instead just one long rectangular table."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We went out for an evening and ended up back on the street in under 1 hour. I can't say that the service was poor, the waiter was good except that we said we were not in a hurry and just wanted a relaxing dinner. So we ordered, asked that the main course be held back, but it was on the table 5 minutes later!! We were literally in and out in less than 1 hour, it felt like a fast food restaurant. The food was good and well prepared, but I had not yet recovered from the appetizer when the main arrived so I could not eat half. Again, the food was good and service was professional, but it was way too rushed."
