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.

The perfect restaurant for any occasion. Food is always delicious, properly prepared brought to the table hot. The servers and bus boys are the best in town.

Wildfire is usually so consistently wonderful. This time was kind of disappointing. Once we were seated, it took an unusually long while for anyone to acknowledge us--even to just get water. Once the server came to our table, we asked for gluten-free bread, and were told that it was available and would be out shortly. We politely asked after the gluten-free bread, and were told it should be coming. The waiter even commented that it should have come 25 minutes ago (which tells you that we waited a long time for our food overall). We never complained (were not difficult nor demanding), but a manager came over to apologize for the delay in both the food and bread, so something must have been up. The food came, and was, of course, delicious. The gluten-free bread NEVER came. I really don't mean to be making such a big deal about the GF bread, but if everyone else is happily nibbling along on the regular bread and the AMAZING cornbread, you feel kind of guilty and bad for the one GF person at the table.
Anyway, all the rest of the food was delicious. Skirt steak always incredible and tasty, sweet potato--I don't know (and probably don't want to) how they get their sweet potatoes so sweet and delicious. Burgers, fries, all perfection. Of course we'll go back--it's Wildfire--but that night was not stellar in the service department.

I personally would not go to this location the Lincolnshire and Oakbrook locations are much more attentive and less pushy service- wise. Our waitress was very pushy and wanted to rush us to order ( mind you it was a group of 7). When it was time to take the credit card to pay for the bill she did not come to the table promptly, instead someone in our party had to go and give it to her. Food was great as always! Disappointed in the service we received since I am a regular Wildfire goer....

Our reservation was at 7:15. We were not seated until 7:30. The waitress did not come over until 7:45 to take a drink order, offer bread or anything else. The restaurant was busy, but in the past reservations have been handled on a timely basis. There were obviously not enough people working. Food was good, but I brought my friend for her birthday, and I was embarrassed.

As long as Wildfire continues to deliver, we’ll keep coming back. This visit, our server, Chazz (that’s what the receipt said) made the meal flow smoothly and evenly spaced. He was a really nice guy too. My wife got her usual side Caesar, which was STILL big enough for two! And as usual it was great! I had a cup of the special Chicken Noodle soup which was really a different type of chicken vegetable soup and was excellent! My wife had a huge piece of planked salmon with teriyaki and she loved it. I had the special Parmesan encrusted cod, a huge piece of fresh, clean, delicious white fish that was truly wonderful. Our favorite sides are creamed spinach and au gratin potato. Can’t have too much of those! Finally we are big fans of the private label wines, origin Central California Coast, and a real bargain! Any of them! The desserts looked ridiculously good but wine is our dessert!!

Staff was really the best. The beer was incredibly delicious. Our server was very thorough and a gentleman. The food was too expensive and poorly presented. I love bread with butter, but the bread was not the best and trying to eat it with butter was cumbersome.

Many Thanks for putting my party in the wine room! we had several elderly family members who don't do well when there is a lot of noise. The food was fantastic, however our server kinda forgot about us.
For drink refills, the birthday cake ! and to collect the bill. Fortunately it did not ruin our evening.
We can't say enough about the food, it was excellent ! I would request that room next time we are hosting a dinner but know what to expect. Thank You!

My son and I had dinner with my 93 y/o Mother who lives at the Glen.

Your staff was very accommodating and sat is in a booth!in the bar area in my Mom’s favorite seat, because it is quiet enough to converse.

The meal was wonderful and we had a great time.

Thank you all.
