Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon.

Diner Reviews
  • "Have yet to be disappointed here. a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. My dream meal has attentive but unobtrusive service and they get it right every time. There is never a question about the quality of the food served, always great as well."

  • "The restaurant was as crazy as usual. I loved the middalions and chopped salad to die for."

  • "Good food, Good service. The noise and business of the restaurant detracted from the atmosphere."

  • "We had a 7:00 reservation,and we weren't seated until 7:30. A manager gave us a complimentary appetizer to apologize for the long wait. We appreciated the gesture. I was disappointed that the 8 hour barbeque was sold out,because I specifically came for that entree. My wife ordered prime rib,which had more fat than we've ever seen on prime rib. The prime rib seemed to be 30% fat. She should have sent it back,but didn't because she was so hungry and it was already late. The prime rib was definitely not worth the price,considering a substantial portion of it was inedible. Wildfire is one of our favorite restaurants. Most of our dining experiences have been great. Unfortunately tonight was far from great. We were extremely disappointed."

  • "We selected Wildfire to celebrate my wife's birthday as a special occasion, and found the environment, service and food to be very satisfactory and pleasing. We plan to return as fans of this outstanding restaurant."

  • "Wildfire never disappoints! I've been going to the Glenview location ever since it opened. It's great for entertaining clients, family get togethers, special celebrations, or just a great place for fabulous food!"

  • "First, the special trout dish for Tuesday nights was already gone by the time we sat down at 6:30. I've noticed that at this locations, special don't last long, even if you're early. My biggest problem though is the "no guns" sign on the door. I don't know why LEYE felt the need to alienate a large population of its customer base, but as soon as my frequent diner credits are gone, so am I (and my money). Don't these people know that you are LESS safe in such a place? Almost every mass shooting ever has happened in a so-called "gun free" zone."

  • "The service was great giving us time to visit and enjoy a drink and the bread served. Steak was prepared perfectly and was extremely enjoyable with the wine and potatoes. A great dinner."

  • "We've eaten here many times. It does not have an exciting menu but it is reliable with nice ambience. I usually don't like a dark restaurant in summer but it was very hot outside so it worked this time. The Tuesday special was trout, which was delicious. The beet salad was also very good. We went early so it wasn't overly busy and noisy."

  • "Our party enjoyed the king cut prime rib. What an awesome piece of beef!!!!!.......like butter!!! The wait staff there is hit or miss. It was Sunday evening and our waitress must have just been awaken from under a table because she did not want to be there?? It was humorous that such a wonderful establishment employees such a slug to represent their hospitality!! She actually offered to share the specials but informed us she didn't want to and they were all listed in this little menu anyway?? Again, it was humorous!! The kitchen brings out the entrees to table so you are safe not having to rely on the wait staff to get the most important part, the entree, to your table when they feel like it,....maybe?? I go with little expectations!!"

  • "Three of us ate wonderful appetizers and dinners. The New York Strip Steak and Halibut were awesome. The calamari appetizer was terrific! Service as usual was excellent. Have been to Wildfire in Glenview, IL many times and look forward to enjoying the great food and service again. This is the second time I ordered the halibut and although I love steak, I couldn't pass up the halibut when I saw it on the special menu."

  • "My wife and I love wildfire. We always have a great meal. We often come for lunch, but this time we came for dinner. It was a Saturday night and we had reservations for 8:30pm. It was very busy, but we were seated promptly. We started with the small Caesar salad and it was more than enough for both of us. It was fresh and crisp with the right amount of dressing. We both had the king cut prime rib and they were very large. We had plenty left over for sandwiches the next day. My wife had the twice baked potato and it also was very large with just the right amount of browning on the top. I had the mashed and they were very buttery, just the way I like them. We finished by splitting the three layer chocolate cake. Fantastic as usual!"

  • "We went to Wildfire-Glenview for my son's 19th birthday lunch. Our server was great, the food was great and the prices were quite reasonable. When I made the reservation online, I noted that it was my son's birthday, so the server brought him a chocolate "lava" cake with a candle, which was a really nice touch! We've also been to Wildfire for the Thanksgiving meal which was awesome as well. We used to dine at another restaurant for Thanksgiving, but we've got a new favorite with Wildfire. I would totally recommend Wildfire. The menu has food that everyone will love. And the cornbread they bring to the table is amazing - I need to learn how to make that at home!"

  • "consistently good food, plentiful and tasty. The macadamia-crusted halibut is one of my favorites. But it's always very noisy."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner. Our waitress was excellent and the food was great. We were 6 adults and everyone enjoyed the dinner. They put us in a quiet room at the back of the restaurant and we loved being able to visit."

  • "We were at Wildfire because we had two celebrations. I was pleased that we could get a reservation 24 hours before. Our server, Alexis was OUTSTANDING. We were dining with a five year old and that isn't always easy. Alexis was incredibly patient and thoughtful."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I joined 2 friends for lunch and we ate outside on the patio, which was lovely. We ordered a white wine sangria for starters, but the bar made it a sangria martini, which was quite different. Steak was overcooked, but everything else was lovely. The corn bread is to die for, and the waiter was just wonderful."

  • "While on a business trip a partner and I had dinner reservations for 7:15 on a Tuesday night. We were there early, so we had a drink at the bar and, but were seated early at 7:00. Servers do seem to be spread out quite a bit, handling many tables at once. They did their best, but service was not very attentive. Not bad, just not up to par with the price level of the restaurant. I had the rib eye and my partner had the filet medallions. Both were fantastic, and the wine list is adequate. The restaurant is very crowded and loud, so not the greatest for a romantic dinner, but for our purpose, it was great."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Our group of 4 adults had a delightful meal in the Martini Bar Lounge, where the sound level is not quite so loud. The food and service were perfect and we had a fine meal. We will return."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We had a special occasion for a friend who was retiring and we had a group of six to celebrate. The food was excellent as always. The alaskan halibut was mouth watering. The noise level was still conducive for easy conversation even with our group. As far as the wine, even the house red was delicious."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We were given the WINE room which was perfect for our group. We sat around a round table and had a delicious lunch. Everybody was pleased and we have decided this is our "go to" place when we get together!"

  • "We always enjoy ourselves when we go to Wildfire, we can always count on the food being good, my only complaint was that we were seated by the kitchen and I had a lot of servers carrying trays over my head, I should have asked to be moved but there were six of us and I decided to. Not make an issue out of it, Our waiter was great. He was very knowledgeable and had a good personality."

  • "As usual a good Lettuce Entertainment hot spot. You pay for it though. Portions a small and at an average in my opinion of $80 per person. Not really a good deal"

  • "We arrived 10 min. early and our table was ready. Food was good and our server was very informative and attentive. It was a crowded night too and that said, the server was still prompt. I would return for another dinner."

  • "Food was excellent, but service made us feel rushed like they couldn't wait for us to leave. also we saw the check mentioned we had an anniversary, but nothing was mentioned to us about that."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The noise level is "too loud" not energetic. The seating is so close and with an open kitchen it's hard to have a conversation. We couldn't wait to leave so we could enjoy dessert somewhere else. It was inconvenient for us as this isn't what we had planned. I would recommend Wildfire to others but warn them of this first so they can choose wisely."
