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 live nearby and regularly order and pick up during the past year’s challenges. This afternoon we decided we should come over and see our friends who also work at Wildfire! It was a very nice time, seeing several familiar staff and enjoyed another delightful dinner. For a Tuesday evening, there was a very nice flow of happy diners of couples, families and after work folks enjoying the time and dinner.

Our waitress was not attentive at all to our table. She seemed pleasant but spent most of her time at her other two tables and we were barely acknowledged. The food was good but not spectacular. The ambiance was nice and you could have conversation. It was just all right for me.

My expectation level may have been overly anticipated with service far above expectations. However, my party had to continously ask for small items that should have been available such as saucer plates, salt and pepper, and napkins. Two entres we're not fully cooked and had to be returned to cook more thoroughly. We left with the impression that these details woild have made the experience grand.

I’ve been a big fan of wildfire for years. It’s even my parents favorite restaurant and every time they visit chicago we make it a point to go. Haven’t been since before Covid, it’s really gone down hill. There was problems with almost all of our food, from how it was cooked, to the timing items were brought out, to food being cold and burnt. Really disappointed.

It was my father’s 59th birthday dinner. The waiter we had was beyond great! He was attentive, insightful, and efficient. He also brought us food and drinks in a quick fashion and kept checking on us. I can’t wait to go back!

The food was great. We had steak and crab cakes with a couple of martinis. Good gluten-free menu (including bread). Would be even better if the calamari could be be grilled or use gluten-free breading. Mandy was our server and she took very good care of us.

Solid GoTo Chicago steakhouse. The exterior is understated (on a side street with an exterior that looks like an old nightclub) but with a steakhouse interior (as expected).
Great food, great service. 50% of wines on Wednesday is a total deal.

There were a few little things that made this experience less than stellar. Little things like, our plates not being cleared from our appetizers so when our entrees came, we had this huge messy table.

Towards the end it felt like we were being rushed out with the bill despite there being plenty of seats available in the restaurant.

I'd definitely go back — this feels like a one-off issue.

On our annual business trip to Chicago each year we always plan a dinner at wildfire. Great food always done perfectly and a staff that really seems to enjoy serving patrons. Highly recommend the medallion trio.
