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.

    Very Nice design and busy, but the food was just ok and - on the upper price range not good value. Service at Bar and desk was good, but waitress looked overstretched- ordered a bottle of wine and did not get there for the appetizer, and was still not there until a few min before the entree cam in. My steak was good, my daughters was over cooked. Food was delievered by kitchen staff when ready, so the waitress never got in sink with our needs.

    I requested thru open table a side dining room because I know the restaurant is very noisey...when we arrived we were sat at the first table next to the ramp when it is extremely busy w/ people walking by constant entry!i told the guy we requested the Rascal room. He stated Wednesdays are really busy & those side rooms are for private parties...well why didn't someone email of this!?!!!? With technologies of today u could have notified me! So after the waitress took our drink order the manager came over and we moved to a better less crazy area, although no apology was given to us. Food is good, server was good... That's it! PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT the first time that this has happened! Going to Sullivan's next time!

    My family and I love this restaurant. The food and service have always been great. My only criticism was that the room we were seated in was very tight. It couldn't accommodate an elderly person using a walker. I felt like our chairs were too close to the tables next to us.

    I have been going here for years and the service, ambience and quality of food has always been excellent. I have also had a couple of large gatherings in private rooms and had excellent experiences. The Wildfire is a little more expensive then your typical chain restaurant, but it is worth it.

    Wildfire has a gluten free menu that's extensive. That's not easy to find just about everywhere you go. It was a pleasure to be able to select more than the usual steak of plain fish dish for dinner. Thanks for caring and well done on the special menu!

    Pricing has gotten out of line for this restaurant. While the quaity remains great and service is wonderful, it is no longer worth what is being charged for pretty standard fare. The SAME day we had cocktails in a downtown Chicago "Lettuce" restaurant and paid $11 for a top-shelf martini (pretty average). For some reason, Wildfire Lincolnshire charges $14 and doesn't even have to pay the city of Chicago tax! Dinner for 2 (an I only had a salad and soup) was $110 without tip! I can go to MUCH better, non-chain type (and quieter) eateries for this price. I doubt that I will return.

    We had requested a booth, thinking it would be more private than a table. Unfortunately our booth was one of four right in the middle of the main room and the noise level was atrocious. If we go again, we will try to make sure we ask for a booth in a side room since they looked quieter. Food was excellent and service was great.

    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.
