Nothing was brought out, as I had noted when I made the reservation...
It was great as usual.
Decent food...moderate menu selection
My Cocktail was great - had the Whiskey Business. Loved the shrimp cocktail app. Turkey special was very good but could’ve used a little more mashed potatoes. The chicken and rib combo was the low point though. Chicken skin was not crispy and was very fatty. The ribs were just okay. I did like the bbq sauce. Our waiter, Joe, was great and very attentive to our needs. Desserts were very good.
My friend and I ate here this past Saturday night. The inside of the restaurant is really pretty, and the food and wine were amazing. Would definitely recommend to others and will return during future trips to Chicago.
Fathers 50th bday dinner. Food options were great.
Overall, I enjoyed my lunch experience here more than dinner for a special night. Overall it is quality in the sense that you would get from a large corporate restaurant but don't expect any innovative dishes or unique flavors. It also closes a little early so it's not really a long, 2 bottle of wine dining experience. You get what you pay for in the sense that it's not A5 quality but its approachable and overall decent.
Been here 4 times. Never a bad meal. Last visit was my 1 year anniversary. My steak was perfect!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the food at Wildfire. My lamb chops were cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes were delicious as usual.
This was the second time in a row at this particular Wildfire where my steak wasn’t prepared correctly. I ordered a medium filet and it was served rare. I mentioned it to the server and he did nothing about it.
Great good and great service. Always enjoy Wildfire
We live out of state, but every time we are in Chicago (3-4 times a year), we eat at Wildfire. The food and service are always great. We love the salad bowl and the bourbon tips. We also enjoy the wine flight. We'll keep going back again and again.
Went after the Boat show & had early reservation. Wife n I are trying to watch carbs but place was too cool to not enjoy it. Wife had meatballs & I had crab bisque for apps and they were awesome. Went with Prime Rib for entrees and it was amazing. Decided to cheat with Choc creme pie ( split a piece) and it was perfect. Out server was so great , we had a fantastic experience and will be back!
Out with friends! We had a wonderful time and the food was delicious
My favorite go to places! I order the horseradish crusted filet & Wildfire chopped salad every time & it’s always amazing!
We had dinner at Wildfire before attending an evening show on a Friday night. We arrived early, with a reservation, about 6PM, and were seated immediately. The food was excellent, particularly the French onion soup and the sirloin steak. Prime ribs were also very good. Wine selection was good, chocolate cream pie for dessert was very good. Service also was very good. Cost was relatively high, but we used a lettuce entertain you gift card to help with it. All in all, a very good dining experience and we will return.
The host was horrible. Definitely not a pleasant experience with her when we first arrived. She also appeared to be upset when I asked for another table because she sat us next to a very !! Loud group of people. My husband and I were on a date and didn’t want to hear all of their noise, and she gave a very rude look when asked . Other than the host our waiter and food was great .
I've always enjoyed going to Wildfire. Every time I'm in town, it's the first suggestion my mom makes and usually where we go. The waiters have always been kind to us, the ambiance is nice, and the food is great. I feel if Al Capone were alive, he would frequent this place. If you haven't been, it worth a try.
Reservation at 445pm but we were stuffed at a table too small to put our legs under. Has to wait 20 minutes to be reseated. Ordered filet medium well butterflied. It came back burnt to a crisp. Take home food was not ours. It was spare ribs instead of the steak we ordered! This place used to be great. Last two visits were very disappointing. We do not plan to return.
The service was excellent, menu has great selections, and food was outstanding.
It was my husbands birthday so we did get the birthday sundae. Thank you. Our waiter was Philippe and he was fabulous.
See my YELP Review where I indicate how bad the food was and even worse the service was.
This is honestly the first time I've had anything less than stellar to report about wildfire
They used to have an extremely delicious
spinach salad which they discontined. So the waiter suggested this kale and spinach salad. It wasn't atrocious but it wasn't good. I asked for the salad dressing on the side...okay.even with salad dressi g all over it it was in my opinion beneath wildfires standards. Almost 8 dollars for a plate of spinach and kale with egg diced in top and at least a cup or more of salty pumpkin seeds on top and falling off the side of the salad and plate. Not good. Very dissapointed....
This place has succulent steaks. They are very strict on their lunch dinner menus.
Great service and the food was ok. Not great. The cocktails were very good.
The quality of our steaks were very poor, the server did not come by 1 time after we received our food to see how it was and it was very loud and bright in the restaurant for being 9:45pm. I would not recommend this to anyone.
Waiterss was very nice and the food was amazing
We dined on New Years eve and were extremely satisfied by all aspects of this restaurant!
Frankly all the food was poor, from the dinner salad with old marinaded vegtables and eggs (who puts eggs on a diner salad?) and very light blue cheese dressing, the baked potato was cooked many hours earlier and microwaved to be crusty, the prime rib as also crusty and hard and the lobster was also rewarmed and breaded. It was supposed to be fresh lobster in the shell. The shell was on the plate but the lobster tasted like it was cooked the day before.
Really very poor for the price. I would expect this from a coffee shop type resturant
Really really good. Will definitely go again when in Chicago.
Mom wanted prime rib for her birthday. Years ago I searched recommendations for the best prime rib for the value and Wildfire was the top recommendation. The two of us are able to split the 16 oz prime rib, add on a side or two and still take home a half. We love martinis and the wine list is good, however I generally go for the house Cabernet. Our server was accommodating to splitting and the birthday lava cake was an awesome add on.
Wildfire is consistent in its food quality and service which are the reasons we go there frequently.
Overall experience was good. I think they need more/better dessert choices.
You had me at meat tornado.
So so good - everything! Service. Ambience. Food. Company.
Such good food and service...my wife had the Surf & Turf and I had the Mai Mai....delicious...From the beginning to the end great dinner evening.
I love the glazed salmon and the signature martini flight. The porterhouse was not the same and a much smaller portion than my husband was use to at this restaurant. It's pricey but good for our annual visit around our anniversary time.
I had a bad experience at the restaurant. Food was not done when brought out and there were just a lot of problems
I have been a regular customer of Wildfire for over 5 years and have always been pleased until our latest visit on Saturday evening. My wife ordered the prime rib and I for a change of pace decided on the baby back ribs. When served, the ribs were cold, like they were pulled from the fridge and then lathered in sauce. The waiter was somewhat defensive when I told him. The ribs were sent back and new, hot ribs were later served after my wife had finished her meal. The manager comped my meal and drink, but for the level of inconvenience and being served what could have made me very sick, both meals should have been comped. And so much for a romantic meal! Overall, the feeling received by the manager and waiter was that they could care less if we ever came back. I sent a note to corporate to let them know and have not heard back. So it must be a general sentiment. This is the reason for the ratings above.
