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.

Wildfire is consistent in quality and service. Really top notch meat and potato place. And I have to say the scalloped potatoes are one of the best I have ever had. We had Paul the waiter and he was great!

This was one of the best experiences we have ever had in a restaurant. Phillip, our waiter was extremely kind and attentive to detail, especially our dietary restrictions. The quality of the food was also excellent. We were kind of in a bad mood when we arrived, but when we left we were very happy.

If you want someone to fall in love with you, take them to Wildfire and don't suggest splitting since umm...that's not good on a date. But if you've been together a while and you're wanting a seriously spectacular meal to share before you do something else amazing like seeing Hamilton, this is it. Split a small Caesar. We each had full plates and there was still some left over in the bowl. It was the most perfectly savory Caesar ever. Then order the full size filet and split it with your date. Seriously, the full size is TEN OUNCES so I couldn't even finish my half. But again, it was perfect. Did I fall more in love with my date because of the meal? Maybe...or maybe it was Hamilton...but Wildfire plus Hamilton is a 100% sure thing.

Staff was very friendly. I appreciated the confirmation call to lock in our reservation. Ambience= B: steak house basics (dark wood, wine bottles, black and white photos of famous (?) people). Waiter was nice, helpful, and aside from forgetting to bring my wife’s second cocktail, spot on. He waived the charge for that drink before we even asked so kudos!! Food was meh. Apps: calamari... fried in dark oil which was a day or two beyond needing a change out. Everything fried was too dark, including fries. Crab and shrimp bisque = top notch! Main course:I had the horseradish crusted filet. Temp was a perfect medium rare but the flavor was flat and the horseradish had no pop. Spouse had Saturday special: Filet/beef Wellington. Perfect temp again - flavor was solid. They treated my daughter to a comp’d lava cake for her birthday- very nice. Other desserts were also good. Biggest complaint is sound from kitchen: about five minutes someone was dropping an empty pan and I jumped every time.

Planned a meal with family for dinner and the review for this restaurant was great overall so we tried it out. It did not disappoint. A bit noisy in the open dining room, but we could still carry on a conversation. The server was attentive. Food came quickly and prepared well. Servings were ample. I shared an entree (pork chops) and salad (kale salad) with my wife and we still left a bit of food on the plate. We would return again and try other dishes.

When we arrived we told our server that we had tickets for a musical and would not need to wait to order. She brought our salad, and then we waited a long time for our entrees. She did mention once that dinner should be coming soon. When it finally did arrive we needed silverware and there was no one to be found to bring it so we grabbed one from a neighboring table. Because of our lack of extra time we didn't even look at a dessert menu for fear that if we ordered we would be late for our musical.

My husband, son and I came to this restaurant while on our weekend getaway to Chicago on Saturday, April 7, 2018 around 7:00 p.m. We left not 100% satisfied compared to other restaurants we dined at around the area. I ordered the cod that was on special for the night. I'm on a special diet during my pregnancy and asked if I can get the roasted vegetables that were suggested with the entree without the balsamic glaze. Our server quickly said NO. I questioned why, and he was quick to explain that the vegetables were already pre-roasted with the glaze and heated up when an entree is ready to be served. I asked him to please check with the kitchen if I can get a fresh side of the roasted vegetables without the glaze, and he said they wouldn't do it. I've NEVER been to a restaurant where they couldn't make an accommodation to a side! For a pregnant woman that's on a special diet! I asked to speak to the manager and the manager was very nice, willing to see what he can do, and made sure I got what I wanted. He even checked back with me after my order was in to make sure that the kitchen is working on my request. The manager ran our dinner to our table, and checked back to see if everything was ok. The server was standoffish at this point and you could tell he didn't feel like serving us anymore, but was biting his tongue to come to our table. He forgot to bring the coke that my husband asked with dinner. He brought it while my husband was half-way through his not so tasteful ribeye. After we were done with dinner, our server who was standing by the door can clearly see we had finished our dinner, but we had to flag him down and ask for the check. I think this entire experience would have been better if we had a different server. I will not recommend this place to anyone going to Chicago. The manager was pleasant, but the server was not so much.

Food was very expensive for the quality. Very basic recipes. Low on flavor. Unless you get the very high dollar items everything else is no better than a chain restaurant. Our waiter was very rude once he realized we weren’t spending a high dollar amount.

Dinner with family. It was great. Service was excellent. The food was delicious, we all had steaks. Great coatings for the steaks: Horseradish, blue cheese, mushroom and parmesan cheese. They were all wonderful!! For a great steak house, their prices are really great! Great value!

Took my boyfriend there as a surprise for his Birthday on 4/4. It was a WONDERFUL dinner! We sat at table 50 which gave us great view seating of the restaurant. The ambiance, the quick service, food, and most of all our server! David was AWESOME! I couldn't have asked for a better person. With his excellent quick serving skills, it made everything flow well that night. They accommodated him with a chocolate souffle cake that he wasn't expecting at the end of dinner. It was a magical night for him. Thank you Wildfire!
