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.

    An absolutely wonderful dining experience every time. My wife and I went to wildfire for our anniversary (as we do for many special occasions) and we have a top notch experience every time. Opentable.com makes the reservations a piece of cake- even allowing me to request a nice booth for our special occasion- the food is always perfect, and the atmosphere equally delightful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/16/2008
    We dine at Wildfire frequently and this night for some reason the food seemed to have less flavor as in past dining experiences. Seemed like the steaks has much less flavor than normal, the halibut had less flavor than normal, and the Wildfire chopped salad had less flavor/dressing than normal and a flavored apple martini had to be re-made due to flavoring/liquor amount. Somewhat dissapointing. Never have really had a bad meal here until this night. All 4 people in our party had the same feedback. Maybe a change in chefs?

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Be prepared to walk to your parking space unless you settle for valet. My reservation was for 6:15, two people. I arrived on time. They asked me to wait at the bar for the 2nd person. She arrived 7 minutes later. We went to get our table and they gave me a pager. We waited another 10 minutes. I expected a table to be ready for us upon my arrival at 6:15. That was disappointing. Wait staff and bus staff were top notch. We tipped our female waiter very well. I had baby back ribs and she offered to place a bib on me which I accepted. That was a nice touch. Food was ok. My partner had the prime rib and it looked quite good. Their house wine is terrible. I had the WildFire Cabernet Sauvignon. I recommend they look for an alternate.

    The hostess was very nasty. This was my first time dining at Wildfire, however my collegues who have dined at this establishment before, have said the same thing. You should look to hire more mature woman, who can handle crowds.

    The duck was good, but not great. The service started out good, but deteriorated rapidly once a party of 10 showed up nearby. I was dining alone, but I have rather deep pockets and should have been taken better care of.

And we will definetly will be back again, because the people there are great and they provided us with a great service. The food was exquisite. But what I liked the most was how they showed us our desserts, I haven't seen that anywhere else. I want to also say that our waiter was very, very nice and he took very good care of us

    The only reason it was loud was because we were seated near a large party that had small children and they kept playing in the corner and shieking. That will teach us to make 5:30 reservations.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003

    I think the Wednesday special, rack of pork, is over-priced for the quanitity you receive. I mean 2 fatty pork chops, a small side of peapods and some roasted apples isn't worth $20 even under the current economic conditions the country is enduring. Our waitress served the onion soup far after the main entrees were served and didn't even express that she was sorry for it.

    While a bit pricey, I've never been disappointed in this restaurant. The steaks are excellent, as well as the mashed potatoes (I'm addicted to mash potatoes!) and salads. Another plus is that you can order half a dessert if you and your dining partner can't agree on one dessert (desserts are always too big these days for just one person!).
