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 mgr at the time was dealing with a complaining couple outside on the patio. He seemed very nice. We had the same waiter. He was fine but he could use a pep talk and also forgot to bring my husband’s ice tea. I do think he doesn’t like his job very much. It’s hit or miss with great servers and not so great. The food and management are always excellent.

Not the expected Lettuce experience. Waiter forgot to bring our salad, and when we got it the food was almost ready to come, so our leisurely salad before burgers didn’t happen. I ordered a turkey burger, which was beyond dry and hubby a regular burger, medium, which came rare. We asked for fries well done. They were limp at best. Couldn’t find our waiter for a while, so flagged down a bus boy to get a manager. He looked at the fries, and said of them, “yeah, not even done” and went to order fresh ones. Those came limp, too, so we gave up. We didn’t ask, the waiter comped the salad, which was appreciated. Definitely an off night.

After being seated we waited 15 minutes and no one came to our table. Only after I went back to the hostess did someone wait on us. Horrible service

Their filets have definitely gotten smaller, I used to eat at this location every other week and so I noticed the difference. Otherwise, the food was delicious and the service was very good.

We would have given a higher rating except two dinners had to be set back as the steaks were very, very
well done though we requested medium rare. The problem was solved within 15 minutes. Reservations
were honored at the time we requested and seated in an area that we requested.

We are regulars at Wildfire and have always been pleased with the staff, menu, and ease of making reservations. Needless to say, we will be back often - with friends in tow.

We had the kale salad and a bison burger. Medium rare was more like medium well - but not a big deal. Our server was very good. Overall a nice spot to have dinner.

Every time we go to Wildfire the food is getting worse and worse. We used to crave Caesar salad at Wildfire- now I would say - stay away from this salad! We ordered large to share ( mind you, $23 for a plate) and we left half of it! It simply sucked! Lettuce was super old and slimy. Salad was stacked in dressing which had to flavor whatsoever. Overloaded with bread crumbs. Overall I’d give this salad D+. We also ordered fried calamari to start with. Well, these were just average - nothing special and definitely not super tasty either. Entrees: pork chops crusted with mushrooms were hard to chew, my husband’s fillet minion came extra bloody even though we ordered medium-rare, hence we had to return for getting it more done. Kiddo’s macaroni with meatballs - half of the dish was left as meatballs were tasteless.. Drinks - again, nothing special, mine - tasted like soap flavored alcohol.
Overall I have to admit - I will not go back to Wildfire ever again, at least to this location. Once I got this food, I quickly remembered how bad my previous experience was.
Sorry, but this is a definite good bye, Wildfire!

Instead of saying we've never had a bad meal at the Glenview Wildfire, it would be more accurate to say that virtually all our many dinners over the years have been superb in all aspects: Efficient seating, well-trained and friendly wait staff, diverse enough menu, and food that's always prepared and served perfectly. Wildfire is a very well run operation yet seamless to those enjoying it. We always leave relaxed and content with no qualms about returning for the next special night out.

Our server Kevin was excellent. The specials were explained. The food was excellent. It was our anniversary & we had a excellent meal & an enjoyable evening. I has heard that some meat was not prime, I ordered the parm. crusted new york steak and I knew it was prime. Kevin recommended this along with a Limoncello martini.

It was the day after holiday and restaurant was quieter than usual.
Guava lemonade - flavorful.
Received wrong flatbread, which was then corrected.
Blueberry pie - terrific. Attentive service.
