Wildfire - Glenview
just good foodWe have been going to since it opened.
No matter what the ocassion we always
Enjoy it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe asked for a table up frontWe asked for a table up front and they acommodated us. Our server was quite attentive and we lacked for nothing. The food was very good and I think they have the best coffee around. Noise can always be an issue but it wasn't too bad this night.
My only suggestion is that it is time for a face lift. It is starting to look a bit old which seems to be hidden by how dark it is inside.
A new decor is in order.
Other than that, we had a lovely evening.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHonored the reservation evenHonored the reservation even on a crowded night; delicious filets, salads and burgers; attentive service-never finished a drink without a full one waiting.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable mealGreat service. Catered to our every need. We split the caesar salad and the dinner special with salmon. The server dished the salad out to each of us at the table and then left the rest. The kitchen split the salmon up for us. Great presentation. No room for dessert.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrationsWildfire is one of our favorite places to celebrate our family occasions. Great food & service!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, the entire experienceAs usual, the entire experience was highly enjoyable. The only blemish was the tardiness with which one of our party of six received her entree. This provided a somewhat awkward moment, as none of the rest of us wanted to begin eating until her entree arrived. As a result, the rest of us waited with our entrees in front of us for about five minutes before she was served.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways lives up to expectationsNo wonder I say Wildfire is my favorite restaurant! This time I came w/ my three sisters and everyone loved it as much as I did. We split the kale & spinach salad, on the specials menu, to start our meal. I will always order the Macadamia crusted Halibut whenever it's on the specials menu & I' m always glad I did! It truly IS special!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occassionsWildfire does a great job with the food and awesome desserts. In and out quickly without being rushed. Lots of people celebrating special occasions (us included), but also lots of families.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Gluten Free eaters!I love the Gluten Free menus! The Gluten Free roll is delicious!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a safe betI've been to Wildfire many times, usually with my rather large family. The food is always very good quality and is a great chain steakhouse. The noise level is almost always pretty high, and the lighting is dim. Service is reliable.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat servers, good sold foodDependably good food served by well trained and pleasant servers5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood valueGood food; good service; a great dining option in glenview.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial!I booked this reservation through Open Table which I had never done before. There was a place to add a note so I mentioned on the note that we were coming to try several entrees in planning for the rehearsal dinner we are having there in June. I was amazed that the server immediately upon our being seated knew this info, congratulated the couple, etc. it wasn't long before the person in charge of parties stopped by and answered many of our questions even though we didn't have an appointment to do so. Just as good was the absolutely excellent food we ordered. Several of the items we had all had before so one of the things we tried were the pork chops. they were amazing!!! Thank you for such a great night! Can't wait for the rehearsal dinner5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for gluten free dinersWildfire has the most amazing selection of gluten free menu items.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceExcellent food and wonderful service - but noise level is TOO LOUD!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free optionsI like Wildfire, and I'm so happy they offer GOOD gluten free options. We bring our family here to celebrate birthdays because my son, who can't have foods with gluten, can enjoy a great meal like the rest of us-- and with no anxiety.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExtensive Gluten Free MenuThe food is excellent and ample. We were especially impressed with the extensive gluten free menu. It was the most extensive of any we have seen anywhere and the dishes we tried were as good as those on the standard menu--even the mac and cheese! We will certainly return to Wildfire, especially if we have a gluten free diner with us.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMfit2begoodFood was well prepared and wait staff was very professional. Waitress was there when needed but not overpowering. Known for steak but may want to provide vegan/vegetarian option (2-3) for larger groups5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood mid-week lunch optionThis place is so popular and busy that we find weekends there too noisy, but a weekday lunch was great ! Still quite busy but not mobbed -- and we could hear each other without shouting. Found the lunch menu to be varied and service very good.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgluten friendlyfinally a restaurant that recognizes that 20 percent of the population can't eat gluten. Fabulous homemade gluten-free bun, and amazing gluten-free molten chocolate cake5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, outstanding service,Good food, outstanding service, a little pricey. Still, worth the trip.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood quality, but overpricedGood quality, but overpriced and snooty wait staff.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite go to placeExcellent food, always great service, always pleasurable experience!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebReservations a must. Busy all the time. Generous portion sizes, but my husband & son in law cleaned their plates! Entree & side were a little on the salty side. Wait staff running all over the place, makes it a little difficult to navigate the aisles. Experience typical of the Lettuce restaurants.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfire was very friendly.Wildfire was very friendly. It was a special Anniversary party and the waitress acknowledged it right away and treated us to a special dessert. Service good. Food excellent. Was very happy that I chose this restaurant to take my guests.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!I visit Chicago at least once a year and always dine at Wildfire when I'm in town. The chopped salad is the best salad around, and the halibut is another favorite. The service is always great. My only complaint is the noise level, so it's best to go when it's not as busy. However, the restaurant is so popular, it's hard to figure out a time that it won't be busy. No matter what, you'll have a great meal!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMmy viewwife loved the place and food and we shall visit again.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food. Professional,Really good food.

Great Mother's Day dinner!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHalibut !!!Outstanding macadamian nut encrusted halibut !! A 'lil bit' pricey but well worth the second mortgage !!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant & menuGreat food, always busy, nice wine list, friendly waitstaff. Booths are the best here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchThe restaurant was elegantly furnished. It has a supper-club feel to it. The wait-staff are very friendly and knowledgeable of the specials and the menu. The noise level was moderate. The food was flavorful and well prepared. One hiccup in my dining experience was that I ordered my bone-in ribeye medium-rare, and it came out medium well. However, the I did not have to wait long for the replacement to be served. The waitress was very attentive and came back several times to check on the table. The other hiccup was the desserts took a long time to be served. Once again, the waitress was able to rectify the situation to the table's liking. Overall a very good dining experience despite the few bumps. I would recommend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA MUST TO VISITI frequent your restaurants wherever I am. If in the city and looking for a place to visit or host, I select Wildfire. I've frequented Glenview & Chicago locations equally. I love the Glenview location because of its location, free or valet parking is available. I love the ambience. Of course, the food is delicious and carefully prepared. The moment you enter the restaurant, you're greeted cheerfully by everyone and given gratitude by everyone as you leave. The waitress or waiters are polite, patient, kind, and very helpful. All in all everyone puts forth great effort to make your visit an enjoyable one.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat any time!My wife had the prime rib and I had a slab of about the best ribs I ever ate! The order of prime rib was the smallest on the menu, but both my wife and I carried food home! The service was excellent. It was Mothers Day and everyone was very busy, but our waitress found tme to give us the service we needed to really enjoy out meal. We will be there again with a group of "Lunch Bunchers" tomorrow. All of us like it well enough to come back on a regular basis.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMrecommened dishesHighly recommend the scallop appetizers and the
Wildfire chopped salad.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood as it getsOur experience was fantastic. Sat in a booth in the bar. It was quiet. Food & drink were spectacular. We could hear ourselves talk, and our server was knowledgeable and patient. The shrimp and lobster bisque was delicious.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSeated on time, staff verySeated on time, staff very attentive without being overbearing. Menu had sufficient choice.

-appetizers were a bit greasy
-main course was good but it came out only seconds after we finished our soups (too fast) and our bill for 2 adults and 1 baby was $150, and that was with no alcohol5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great ChoiceLove Wildfire! they are consistent, food is always great and service is awesome.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceThe food was terrific (prime rib, halibut and the chopped salad, all yummy), and the real gem was our terrific waitress. Great experience. i will definitely be back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConfirming its "Favorite" statusEver since I discovered the Wildfire restaurants about 15 years ago, it has been my favorite place to go for family functions, office holiday parties and personal splurges. As a single mom on a budget, the dependability of the food means that if I decide to take the college-aged son, the preschool nephews, or my girlfriends in book club, we will all leave happy and full. The crew at Wildfire-Glenview is maintaining the great steakhouse/grill tradition while offering just enough adventure to keep the food from being totally boring. Love it!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOutrageous pricesI would say the food is good, not great or outstanding. The prices are outrageous and not warranted given the food quality. You can definitely get the same meal and quality at a much less price as many other eateries. At Wildfire, you pay for the name and the franchise. Our bill was over $500 for a table of 8. Really outrageous. Save your money and go to Jimmies Charhouse or Jamesons Charhouse.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect place to go for a meal.We have been going to Wildfire for many years and have never been disappointed by anything! If a dish has not been right, for whatever reason, they always take it back and get you something you do like. The service is prompt and friendly and we have a favorite waiter who we ask for, if he is available. The bar is a great place to wait for a table also. They have the best cosmos around! Friends and family who are visiting always ask to go to dinner at Wildfire because they loved it last time! I would never hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent and qualityAlways consistent and quality food. Steaks were fantastic.
Love the Monday night half priced bottles.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
