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.

Seated us next to the busing station. Very loud, very distracting, and very unenjoyable. Ended up leaving after the meal with a headache.

The food was outstanding as always – just confused why they did not split the dishes we are sharing as well far has always done this for us in the past. And the next problem was that we ordered a substitution with the daily special green beans instead of the vegetables and there was an up charge which we agreed to. But the serving size was about 12 green beans – no kidding!

Been to wildfire-glenview several times and always had great service, great atmosphere and delicious food. This time we were seated almost immediately and our waiter Dominic was extremely attentive and knowledgeable on all menu items and went above and beyond to take care of us. As usual food was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Good value for Valentine’s Day. Crab stuffed mushrooms had spinach and a light tomato broth, nice and hot.
Caesar salad needed more croutons and would be better with larger shavings of cheese. Feta crusted NY steak was a full size, 8 or 10 oz portion. Au gratin side was much smaller than we remember. Petite filet was tender and bearnaise sub for crust was lighter than expected however the tarragon was nicely pronounced. Berry crisp was much mire like gramola chunks with fresh berries, a scoop of ice cream and a strawberry sauce - tasty and crispy - just not what one would expect of that dessert name.
The service was attentive.
Their bread service that night was cute with heart shaped chocolate bread - however it was too sweet along with sweet onion crumbly bread. We much prefer the loaf of dark bread they offered years ago.

Our service was excellent which is not always the case at Wildfire. Our server looked like Jan from WKRP. Ha! The ribs were a little tough but very tasty. Everything else was delicious. Nice low key early Valentine's dinner.

Unusual for two food items to
be off, but they took both off
our bill unexpectedly.
After a long wait they offered
us a complimentary appetizer,
also unexpected.

Food is always wonderful. We had a great server for our pre-Valentines day dinner. My only complaint is that it is always noisy. My husband is disabled and they were very accommodating and helpful, but it's hard to carry on a conversation sometimes.

The food and atmosphere are great. Unfortunately, our server was terrible, not nice, rarely came back to check on us, forgot our bread, I had to ask another server for coffee, generally seemed annoyed to have to serve us. It was a birthday celebration so that was a bummer.

I love going to Wildfire because I can always count on the food that I have ordered and loved to still be on the menu. I start with an Educated guess wine bottle, then have the avocado tuna appetizer, then the Mahi dinner or almond crusted cod when in season, the overcooked broccoli-the way I like it and of course mushroom caps. If we are really hungry we will also do a chopped salad. I love desserts, but they don't like my waistline, so I try my best to stay away. When I do order, its usually Key Lime Pie or something chocolaty .

Always a comfortable environment. The friendly greeting at the desk, a very solicitous waiter and the birthday dessert for my friend made it a memorable experience. A go-to for a celebration on a cold winter's day!

Overall, our dining experience was underwhelming. It was my wife’s birthday and I made reservations. We got there on time and had to wait at least 20 min before getting seated (not sure why I even bothered). We were seated in a high traffic area and it was super noisy. The service was slow on almost every moment of the meal (it was busy—but when the waitress is gone from the floor for over 5 min—seems odd—I used to be a waiter in my college days). The food was good but my wife mentioned how the plates looked “cafeteria style”...lump of potatoes by itself on a plate and a lonely slab of meat plopped on another scratched-up white plate. The question is—“Are you getting what you pay for?”
