The filet medallion steaks seemed to have gone down in quality. We were under impressed with the steak, but our parents loved the seafood.

We go to Wild Fire when we feel like celebrating. We LOVE the steak medallions, and we love the side dishes, and don't even get me started about the deserts. Great place to go for a wonderful meal.

Service and food were both excellent, but price point was kind of high and we were seated next to a girls' night out and a family so noise level was high. Make a reservation because even on a Tuesday it was crowded at 6:30pm. They have a patio that we have sat on before in summer which is very nice and minimizes the noise level. Definitely more of a special occasion place.

This was our second disappointing meal at Wildfire (first one was in February for my husband's birthday)Last time the fish was overcooked and terrible. This time the steak sandwiches were undercooked and didn't taste good at all.

The service was awful. The server was non-existent. We had to ask numerous time to get coffee and soda refills. They initially brought a bread basket that was sufficient for three to four people. The salads took 45 minutes to arrive after ordering. The main course too over 1.5 hour to be served and was cold. The server must have forgotten to pick up the order. We called over the manager and told her of our problems and she re-ordered the food which arrived in about 10 minutes the second time around but many of the items were not cooked properly. the twice baked potato was overcooked and dried out. The burgers were cold. The veggies were not cooked to order. They "comped" the meal, but 2.5 hour experience was dismal.

In my opinion the quality and the service is far superior at Wildfire’s Lincolnshire location. The only reason we went to Glenview is I could not get a reservation in Lincolnshire at the time we wanted.

My wife and I always go to Wildfire (Glenview, IL) for our Anniversary dinner. went to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. We were going to try someplace different but we decided "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". When we arrived, we were seated immediately. The waitress was attentive and brought us some bread right away. We were disappointed to see Wildfire no longer serves the loaf of bread anymore.

My wife ordered a glass of wine that was $8. I was surprised to see how little wine came in the glass (it wasn't even a high end brand). I ordered a 3 Floyd's Yum Yum beer for $7.50 which is about the average price for a 3 Floyd's in a restaurant setting. When the meal came, I was severely disappointed in the slab of ribs I ordered. The outside was charred black and they weren't very meaty. My Au Gratin potatoes had little to no flavor. The amount of cole slaw served with the ribs was an absolute joke. My wife ordered her filet medium rare. It was closer to a medium well on the edges but started getting pinker as she ate.

The waitress was kind enough to bring us some flourless chocolate cake with ice cream to celebrate our anniversary. In the past, we have experienced great meals at Wildfire. It is one of the reasons we keep going back. Unfortunately, I have had better ribs at a local bar. For what we paid for the meal, the quality of the food and our overall experience, I am not sure we will be back. I didn't make any complaints to the waitress because we were celebrating a special occasion and I didn't want to make the evening any worse.

The only time available was 5.30 or 7.45. We took 7.45 and told them if a time between 6 -7 became available to call me. On Friday they called for 6.15 being available and I took it.
The waiter, the manager and the food were all good. The people were very nice and professional

Whenever I go to a restaurant, I use Wildfire as a barometer of comparison. If I spend an equal or greater amount then I would at Wildfire, it better be a great meal. Every time I go to Wildfire, it is always a great meal. I highly recommend it.

I have had lunch and dinner at Wildfire - Glenview on many occasions. The service and the food are excellent. The Manager on Duty - Jill is very professional and always says, "Hello" when she sees me. I enjoy the variety and taste of the various food served there. From the Sea Scallops, for an appetizer, to the Romanian Skirt, for an entrée, to the Ice Cream Sundae for dessert. The Stormy Nights are a very tasty cocktail as well. A great place to dine.

Impel was our waiter and was very nice and attentive. He explained the specials and my husband chose the Manhattan steak. I had the charred rib eye. Both steaks done perfect. Your corn bread is fabulous as one of your breads and my husband also loves the onion rolls. The French onion soup was very tasty and my husband loved the shrimp and crab bisque. A little pricey but still very good. One of our go to places for a special occasion

Wildfire has good food and our waitress was excellent. Challenge always is the noise level. You feel like one in a few hundred that are in crowded rooms and everyone is talking. If you are a large party, you will only ever be able to talk to the person next to you.

It had been a while since we had been to Wildfire, and, after this visit, I'm wondering why. I had my personal favorite, the Parmesan-encrusted New York strip, and it was so good I finished the whole thing. I was very pleased that they had a children's menu - my son loved his burger. Service was attentive, and kid-friendly. The waiter was very courteous to ask if we wanted my son's meal brought out before ours or when the adults' meals were ready. I always appreciate that. And he spoke to my son rather than me about what he wanted to eat and drink. I appreciate that show of respect. The rest of my party had various filet mignon preparations with the blue cheese crust and horseradish being the favorites. The mushroom crust got a tepid review.

Overall, I love this place and can't wait to go back!

Wildfire has really gone from a special dinner experience to completely overrated. We began our meal with filthy menus caked in loose food and the floor surrounding us was covered in food dropping’s. Our water glasses were crunchy/dirty on the outside. My husbands salmon was very undercooked and when brought back it was cooked on the outside and still cool on inside. They really should have started fresh. I ordered the Parmesan crusted cod which was not hot and wet inside , not like usual when it’s brought right out of oven. My server didn’t bring my salad dressing till everyone else was finished with their salad. Just a disappointing experience for my Mom’s 85th birthday celebration. We know longer think of Wildfire as a nice dining experience.

Two years ago, the holiday dinner for Passover was very nice. Disappointed with this year’s menu: everything for Passover was ala carte and limited. We all ordered dinner from the regular menu.
