A word from Wildfire - Lincolnshire
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.

    A great restaurant with lots of energy - Although we had an early reservation (6 PM), the place was packed. We were seated immediately. The wait staff and management team were constantly on the move to insure that service was top notch, e.g., refilled water glasses, empty plates removed immediately without being intrusive. I tried the martini flight - interesting, but next time I'll go with just individual cocktails. We also had soup, salad, chicken Moreno, and a burger. All were terrific choices, but it is the service that is the star attraction.

    For one of the few times, my steak was not great. They butterflied it at first - even though I specifically asked them not to. They redid it, but it was only fair. The split pea soup - a special of the day - was thin and watery. We've been here many times - first time the food wasn't great.

    Lately, you can't count on the food being good. Both our dinners were overcooked and dry. Service was bad. Our cocktails didn't arrive until 1 minute before our dinner. Then, we were overcharged and had to not only explain to the waiter but also the manager. This used to be our Friday night dinner place, but going to change that.

    For being a chain, Wildfire still has some good quality cuts. The wine list is longer than you'd expect at a chain as well. Service is also on par with the higher end chain steak houses in the area.

    It was a pleasure to dine in Wildfire. The ambience was perfect for an evening out with friends. The wine list was extensive and sophisticated enough to satisfy each person in our group. One comment, however, reflects the portion size. One of us ordered the seafood platter which was comprised of 2 small shrimp, a very small portion of salmon and nothing more than two forkfuls of a crab cake. While each was tasty, the portion was quite meager for the price. Surely for 32.99 a more generous and filling plate of food can be served. I do understand that we are accustomed to palatial portions; however, this platter of food was really insignificant. I would dine in Wildfire again, but I would not order this entrée.

    We had a wonderful time at Wildfire Saturday night. We went early and it wasn't crowded. the food was great and the service great as well. Our server, can't remember her name, she is from London and when we go again, I hope we have her. She was terrific, suggested some great wines as well. It was a special evening and it was recognized.

    Wildfire in Lincolnshire was the perfect place to celebrate our 20 Year Anniversary. Both the whitefish and the filet mignon we ordered were excellent! Servers were very attentive. We were very impressed with the entire dining experience. Now we are looking forward to the next event to celebrate here.

    Not my first visit to Wild Fire and I have dined at other locations however it had been a few months since dining in Lincolnshire and I was truly looking forward to our celebration. I was disappointed. Reservation was at 6:30 pm, Sunday. No waiting, table ready, for once there was no crowd in the lobby waiting. Waiter was pleasent however we found that we waited quite a bit, for the drinks to be delivered and then again to order appetizers and again dinner. Perhaps the restaurant was short staffed this evening because we felt like our waiter was very busy with larger tables around us. He failed to notice the dish that was missing, the kitchen delivered our meal, waiter never checked to see if it was correct. Food very good.
