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.

We went for my Girlfriend’s birthday and everything was perfect. The food was great, our waiter Don S was awesome, and the manager was so nice. They really treated her (and myself) incredibly and made the birthday night 10x better.

Our 2nd visit to WildFire with last visit quite a few years ago. We thought it was better then when compared to this visit. My filet was done correctly (medium rare), but wasn’t very tasty (I can do better at home). Side of broccoli was pretty tasteless as well & wasn’t done enough. Dessert (fruit with cookie crumbles?) was nothing special. Service was very good. So, don’t think we’ll return to this restaurant in the future.

We have visited Wildfire a number of times and look forward to enjoying the great food and service. This time we were seated at a table not a booth and the noise and conduct of guests at neighboring tables (especially young children) was bothersome and distracted from our enjoyment of a good meal and family time.

The cocktails were nasty costly. Ordered a tequila sunrise that was weak and same for the Mai Tai....Barbecue chicken was just okay..not enough appetizers to choose from..Won't ever dine here again and the bill was hefty.

The Thanksgiving meal was a mixed experience. We enjoyed the evening and had good service, but there were issues with freshness and food temperature. The vegetables for the dip looked old (e.g. wilted celery with brown edges, slimy cucumber, dry carrots, etc.) and didn't taste very good. We asked for fresh ones but they weren't any better. The deviled eggs had a crust on top, indicating they'd been sitting out for quite a while. The cornbread was very good and was by far the best appetizer of the three. The turkey was good, but the sides were cold. We thought the pumpkin pie was excellent. The wait staff really made an effort to accommodate us when we asked for things on the side due to dietary restrictions. Although I might go back to Wildfire another time, I wouldn't return for the Thanksgiving meal.

Excellent Thanksgiving dinner for 8 people. Food was plentiful, delicious and great quality. Several options with regard to dinner choices, salads, side dishes and desserts. Service was amazing on a very busy nite. This was our third time having Thanksgiving at this restaurant and I could not imagine a more perfect way to celebrate.

We came for Thanksgiving and it was a wonderful experience. The restaurant really treats gluten free diets right! They provided gluten free cornbread and stuffing for dinner, along with gluten free croutons for the salads. Dessert consisted of pumpkin pie and an amazing chocolate cake!

We traveled from Milwaukee and we’re staying in Chicago for the night. We used OpenTable to make a reservation and were surprised that the host was expecting us by name when we arrived. We were seated immediately for our family of five, at a round table.

We ordered the coconut shrimp; the beef medallions three ways (go for the horseradish!! Yummy!); the perch; a steak burger; and a kids pizza. Everything was tasty and filling. The sides of green beans were a bit undercooked for some, but I loved them. The creamed spinach was very good as well.

This is a very enjoyed restaurant with something for everyone on the menu. The one criticism we would offer is that some meals are just a bit pricey for what you get; for example the coconut shrimp Is just under $30 for 8 shrimp and a side. The menu could be a little more versatile with pricing.

My wildfire experiences have been great usually but this last visit. the server was horrible and it was hard to get a hold of her at times. It was a busy time and she was just not all there for my table but attentive to other tables with ease.

My absolute favorite restaurant! I came in from Rhode Island to see my kids for Thanksgiving and had to eat at my favorite restaurant. The martini flight is my favorite, along with the filet medallions.

We love Wildfire in the Glen but the city location can't hold a candle to it. The service was abysmal. My portion of fish which my friend had the prior week in the Glen was half the size, my husband and our friend both had lukewarm steaks I won't go back.

I think this will be my last time at Wildfire. Nothing really wrong. But nothing really right. And for the price, it ought to be more right than wrong.

OMG this was awesome - the food we ordered was off the chart - try to season & cook food perfectly & then make it 5x better and that’s what we had. We got lemon pepper chicken and cedar plank teriyaki salmon. Wow! And is course had to finish with the apple pie and ice cream - can’t go wrong with that. Our experience was absolutely amazing - food and service - A+++++++++++++++++++

Service was phenomenal! I was immediately greeted and given the option to wait on my party. We ordered from the bar, sat down within 15 minutes. Our server, had taken our drink order right away and returned for our diner order. I had a party of eight, realized needed more space for unexpected larger party of 11. We we immediately accommodated, with extra table and chairs. Our drinks came in a timely manner. Our server brought us bread and replinished when needed. Our dinner was fast, food came out correctly, except for two items, server caught promptly. They remembered it was Birthday and brought out my desert. Party had several checks and our server was very courteous and professional. Thanks Wildfire for the hospitality and I look forward to being in your house again.

My husband and I came here as part of our Chicago weekend getaway, and it was just as good as the last time we had visited. Outstanding service and superior food. my husband had the beef Wellington and said it was the best he’s ever had. It looked delicious, and I’m a vegetarian! Even though I was stuffed, I couldn’t resist the warm chocolate chip cookie for dessert. Luckily, all of the desserts are available in half sized portions!
