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.

    This place is always a pretty good go too, good food good service. I had the char crusted steak, they no longer have lobster on the menu on a regular basis which for me is a huge disappointment for a steakhouse. So what do you do for surf and turf? It doesn’t exist. Sidenote, I don’t consider a shrimp skewer as a great option for lobster Also, I am a huge lover of Keylime pie now they have this round kind of tart looking Keylime pie, just stick to the basics a nice slice of Keylime pie with a thin, graham cracker crust. The crust in this so-called Keylime pie is way too thick and it’s just too much slightly disappointing, but it is still a place that I like.

    The only bartender did a great job serving people at the bar and tables. He kept his professionalism due to the circumstances. Once my party of 6 was sited we were told that there are items we won’t be able to have , Also our dinner ( meats) came out cold. The sides wasn’t enough for 6 people. I have dined in on several occasions but this was very disappointing.

    Nice table location for my wife and I to have Thanksgiving dinner. Service was very good, waiter came by often. Turkey and beef tenderloin were delicious, vegetables, chopped salad and pecan raisin salads were huge and tasty! Only downside was waiting 1/2 hour past confirmed reservation at 7:30, understandable since it was Thanksgiving w families talking. Family style food could have been warmer when served.

    Our first ever bad experience at a Lettuce restaurant. Restaurant was way over booked. 7pm reservation, seated about then. Salads arrived at 9pm. Mashed potatoes were gone by the time our dinner arrived. Really a shocking experience based upon our history with you. Eg., going to RPM Italian tonight and Cafe Ba Ba Reeba tomorrow.

    I understand that the staff was tired due to over bookings and low staff members. On another given day I believe the meat would’ve been cooked at least warm and our request for extra gravy for the dry turkey would’ve been granted. I appreciate the hard work the staff did, but I probably won’t go back here for a holiday meal. Bless the overworked staff. Please be kind to them.

    Thanksgiving dinner at Wildfire -Chicago was terrible. From the indifferent server to the cold food that was presented like slop. With a set menu, it’s hard to understand how they got it so wrong. If you’re not cooking at home find a different choice for Thanksgiving!

    I was surprisingly very disappointed with this last visit to Wildfire for our Thanksgiving dinner. While the food was outstanding as usual, the service was positively atrocious. They were 25 minutes late for our reservation. The serving staff could not have been more unattentive if they tried. We sat at the table a good 30 minutes before someone came to take our order. One item that we ordered never even made it to the table. After our food was served, no one ever came back to check on us or replenish our drinks. Half an hour after finishing our meal our server came to take our dessert order, never clearing our dinner plates. He placed our shared desserts in the middle of the table without clearing our dirty dinner plates and never brought dessert plates or silverware. After waiting fifteen minutes, we asked a different server for clean forks and dessert plates. He never showed up, either! To top it off, the bill was wrong. It made for a memorable Thanksgiving meal for all the wrong reasons.

    Food was quite good (except the overdone roasted vegetables). The martini menu (one of the restaurant's specialties) surprisingly could have been a little better, too. But everything else was fine, and the service was great.

    This was my first thanksgiving experience here. I don’t think I will come back for any other holiday. I will just stick to normal dining. The servings were not worth the amount I spent. From my previous dining experiences here this was the absolute worst. The server and just the staff in general was super busy and discombobulated. The food was mediocre, definitely not what I am used to.

    I ordered a hamburger. Absolutely tasteless. Worse hamburger I’ve eaten in a restaurant. My husband is gluten free. He wanted the Cesar salad but is allergic to mustard which is in the dressing. He tried lemon Parmesan with the salad and it was awful. And tasteless. The server was kind and surprised us by not charging for the salad. It was much appreciated

    It was an excellent experience. We were celebrating a dear friend’s 74th birthday. The waiter was exceptional. The only downside was the noise from the kitchen because we were sitting directly in front of it. After a while, it was pushed to the background because of the conversation, laughing, and great food.
