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.

Me and my family have dined at wildfire on numerous occasions and the experience has always been good. But me and my son was very disappointed. We felt like we were put in a dark room that was specific to one race. I hope this was not deliberate as I stated me and my family have always enjoyed our experience with wildfire. Secondly with the number of people in that room there was no social distancing. When we got up to leave there was no room between the people and the table for us to walk safely through.

Sad to see such a great restaurant half full because of Covid-19. When ever we come to Chicago, wildfire is a must stop!

I was very disappointed when I arrived and went to order only to find out that the dish that you all advertise wasn’t prepared nor would be ready for a few hours after my visits and I was asked if I wanted to wait til the time that it would be ready. Although I love wildfire and visit frequently and even host dinners there I was NOT impressed this go round.

This was only our second venture out since mid-March. The occasion was my wife, Karen’s, birthday. We’ve enjoyed this Wildfire many times, both dine in and delivery.
The prime rib, which we each had, was perfect, so delicious. The sides were excellent. The birthday treat was a flourless chocolate cake with dollops of whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce. Lovely.
We are grateful to the staff of Wildfire and look forward to enjoying their hospitality (and food!) again.

Wildfire is one of my favorites. Had the Medallion Duo and was prepared perfectly. Ordered med/well and that's how it came out. Not always the case. Service was prompt and attentive. Menu has a wide variety of selections. It was a bit eerie while in the middle of this pandemic. Location is a bit out of the way for us BUT worth the trip.

Dining out in the age of COVID is a different experience, almost felt like private dining without the room charge! We arrived for our 5:30 reservation on a Saturday night and we were the only seated table in the room. Our server Jesse was outstanding. Felt sorry for him working in an empty restaurant and made sure he was tipped accordingly. Hopefully times will be better on our next visit.

Girlfriend and I are staying in Chicago for a weekend getaway. Wildfire was the first place we ate after we landed. Very quiet and great ambiance. Don was a server. Great guy, very attentive and checked on us enough, but not too much. We both had the filet which was great. My girlfriend loved the au gratin potatoes too. In Chicago, eat here, won’t be disappointed.

Given the obvious challenges associated with the pandemic I thought the staff did an excellent job. Our party of four was greeted warmly and treated with care. The wait staff was knowledgeable, engaging and utilized PPE at all times. The food was very good and served in a manner consistent with my expectations. I will certainly return to Wildfire.

Wildfire is one of my favorites. Good River North location. Menu has a great selection. Ordered the Roumanian skirt steak and was very good. Service was attentive. It was very quite. Liked the background music.

Let me just begin by saying Thank You to Wildfire and Open Table for making it clear the COVID-19 precautions that each restaurant is taking to ensure the safety of the customers. Warning, this review might be longer than the norm, my husband and I think it is important to highlight the stellar customer service we've always experienced at Wildfire. We lucked up on a Sunday with my parents taking the kid for the evening (we've all been safely quarantining "together" in our bubble). We quickly decided to make dinner plans and needed to make a decision fast. We pulled out Open Table and took the streets of River North/Streeterville. Initially, I was set on going to a restaurant that had outside seating, but when my husband heard me say "Wildfire", he said book it. 7 years ago, we had our wedding rehearsal dinner here and the service was stellar. We had already spent at least one weekend per month here while we were dating- even decided to have the same waiter each visit. Here we are in COVID-19 and NOTHING has changed in all the good ways!! I feel like the tables are more than 6 ft apart for a very comfortable and safe dining experience. Everyone has masks and gloves that are part of the service and experience staff, temperature checks on the wrist when you enter, and all patrons must wear their mask unless they are sitting at their assigned table. It was heavenly to be without the kiddo and enjoy a dinner at an all-time favorite. While the menu is reduced (like everyone), everything was delicious. One of our fav things to enjoy is the martini flight. it is not currently on the menu but our waiter made it happen for both of us!! Stellar and Safe service!! We love and appreciate all that you do to make this a welcoming and enjoyable experience in light of the times that we are navigating. Cheers to the Wildfire and the LTE team!!

They were very accommodating to change reservations and placed my family at 2 tables near each other. The service was great. The appetizer cornbread was delicious! Everyone was happy with their meals: crab cakes, salmon, steak.
