    Our server was very pleasant and attentive, our appetizer of calamari came before our server came back with our drinks. The calamari was divine, perfect! We both had fillets, which were cooked precisely to our specifications. My husband had the surf and turf so he also had a losbster tail and loved it as well. Over all a good value for the money, we would go back again.

    Out table was ready right on time. The service was very good. There was four of us for a birthday dinner. We started with two appetizers, the bacon wrapped scallops and the muscles. The scallops were fabulous. The muscles had a strong foul smell to them, so they replaced them quickly with calamari, which was very good as well. I had the 10 oz prime rib medium rare. It was probably bigger than advertised and cooked perfectly. Delicious. They gave us one complementary desert for the birthday, which was very thoughtful. I had added the birthday to the comments when making the reservation, but never mentioned it again. The restaurant is always full for good reason. It is worth going there.

    For the first time in many visits we were disappointed. Our waiter was slow with service. The wrong menu items were brought to our table. A side dish was brought to the table, 15 minutes after the entree was delivered. We got to the restaurant at 2:15 pm to have a late lunch and make a 4:30 show. We order dessert fifteen minutes passed and no dessert. We had to leave to make it to the show on time. We never received dessert. A very disappointing experience.

    Our dinner entrees were very good although they came out a bit quick. Our server was apologetic about the quick serve and was overall very attentive and congenial. The blood orange martini was sweeter than I expected. The crowd was energetic and the restaurant was busy as usual.

    Went to dinner with a friend. Profoundly disappointed in the dinner. The special (chipotle strip steak) was over cooked and had no flavor of chopotle or any spice at all. I expect far more from a restaurant at this price point.

    Wildfire Lincolnshire has outstanding food and service. The only drawback is the menu is pretty pricey. You can't find much under $30 for an entree unless you want to go for fish and chips, burgers etc. We ordered a steak entree and a big salad and split the meal which was more than ample for two people. If you eat there, either make it a special occasion (due to the cost) or do what we did and it's more than enough.

    Wildfire is a favorite and I've enjoyed many meals there, but this was not one of their better nights. I was excited to host my daughter and her boyfriend. He's a bit of a foodie, and had never eaten there. It was disappointing because the evening didn't measure up to my hype. The 10 oz filet was fatty, and broccoli was overcooked and almost flavorless. The bisque and french onion soups had nice flavor, but were barely warm. Creamed spinach was nice, as was the chocolate chip cookie dessert. Our server was competent, but somewhat lacking in personality. All in all, this was a slightly above-average meal, not the home-run I was hoping for. Oh well! I'll definitely go back, since Wildfire typically is a much better dining experience.

    Cost is always a consideration for us so we don't get to dine here as often as we wished but when we do, WOW... We are reminded of why it is our "go to" for special occasions. Absolutely love the bar side and were actually fortunate enough to be offered a booth in there that fit our party of 6. Dinner was regarded as fabulous by all in our party. Server (Derrick) was very enjoyable, entertaining and prompt with everything. He kept the drinks flowing, the food coming, and even brought some interesting conversation to the table. An evening enjoyed by all! [50 and over in our group]

    Wildfire Restaurants have been among our favorite restaurants for many years. We always known that whatever location we go to, the quality and the variety of the menu, the wine list, and the service will be excellent. We have never been disappointed. Since we have lived in Hoffman Estates and then Glenview, there has always been a couple Wildfire locations close to us. Now that we have moved to Del Webb's Sun City Huntley, there is not one "in the neighborhood" any more. Hopefully you will open a new location on Randall Road in the Crystal Lake area or on Highway 47 near Sun City (there are @10,000 "seniors" here who don't cook any more and like to go out to eat.) Come on Wildfire ... the only restaurant here is Jameson's Charhouse!

    Been to Wildfire several times, usually perfect food & service. This time, just "pretty good." The petite filet was overcooked (ordered medium rare and came out more medium well). It happens, but our waiter didn't check back on how the food was. I would have asked for a new steak, this was a birthday dinner for my girlfriend and it was her steak. I had enough food to share & mine was done perfectly, so I gave her a lot of my food. Waiter was just ok. I was a waiter for years, I know when a mistake has been made and how it would have been fixed. I know the managers would have made it right, but I didn't want to bust the waiter over 2 bites/2mins, I've heard Lettuce is really strict on their waitstaff. Overall, still recommend.

    Food usually has a higher rating. I had the petite filet which was excellent. 2 members of the party had the New York strip special. When the waitress asked about their meal, they told her the meat was quite tough and was not up to the usual standard they have always gotten. They showed her the meat was difficult to cut. After clearing the table the waitress returned and said dessert was free. When we only ordered one to share, she also gave us the salad we had prior to dinner free of charge. I feel the restaurant went out of their way to make things "right" and this is why we continue to return to Wildfire time and time again.

    I always enjoy dining at Wildfire. That's why 5 of us reserved a table for a birthday lunch on 9/1/2014. The food was wonderful, but the service really was outstanding. Lindsey was our server and she really did a good job. She made it into a special occasion for the birthday girl & brought her a little cake and candle! We will continue to honor Wildfire with our service. Thank you.

    The food and service were very good. The ambiance was also decent, however it was a bit loud. While the setting was nice, we would have preferred a different table, as the one we had was an elevated booth we were facing another couple which created a feeling of being on display. I would strongly recommend changing the seating layout.

    I love wildfire but lately the food is sub par. I had to send my steak back as it was so tough I thought I was eating liver, that's not good when you order your steak medium. It just seems the quality has been compromised. Please look into this I always go here for family gatherings but I am going to rethink this going forward.
