This location (Glenview) has always been my favorite. You used to a have boneless fried chicken chicken special on Monday night but it’s changed to just plain fried chicken. I preferred the other special and did not read the menu properly and it came with smothered gravy and mushroom. Next time I will ask them to skip the gravy. Other than that it was great including the Moscow Mule.

We have been going to Wildfire for my birthday for the past 6 years. We always make the reservation for Saturday night so we can order the "Wildfire Filet Mignon" Special. We always pre-order it when we make the reservation because once before you they had run out before we arrived. All 5 of us ordered it. My sons said it was the best this year. The atmosphere is great and the cocktails at the bar before dinner were made perfectly, especially the Chocolate Martinis. We will be back again next year.

Our server could obviously not handle our table of 2 plus a few others and a large party of 12-14. For a meal upwards of $150. The service was not good, basically ignored After our mains came. Had to ask for water refills. Had to ask for coffee and tea Not the usual service we receive her. Quite disappointing

Great restaurant. Been there many times. Waitress was not the best. Told the manager. Not told the specials, did not ask how our food was, wasn't told it was half price bottle of wine night, did not know it was my birthday. (Was on the online reservation)

·Dined on November 12, 2017

The only negative part of my experience at Wildfire Glenview is how cramped the seating arrangements are. The three tables in the corner of the restaurant I was seated were way too close and the waiting staff had trouble maneuvering around when all three tables became full. One part that arrived an hour after my party asked to be relocated because our area was too cramped. I think everyone would agree that they would rather wait a little longer for a table and have ample room than get seated right away in a cramped spot. It really took away from the dining experience. The food was great, but I feel like the waiting staff could have been 10/10 (our waters weren't refilled until the end of the meal, check took 10 minutes to get and another 10 minutes to take our credit card, etc.) if our area wasn't as cramped. This would have been an overall 5/5 star experience, but the cramped space was bad enough to take it down two stars.

We LOVE Wildfire. Excellent cocktails. Everyone in our group of 6 was happy with their food, from the tri tips to the salmon. Great desserts. It is a bit loud, but we had a round table, which helped. The server was exceptional. Not hovering, but attentive. Had a great sense of humor. Love to celebrate special occasions there.

We typically like Wildfire. However our recent visit was way below our normal experience. It took almost 15 minutes to actually see our server. He seemed distracted. My prime rib was very dry and tough. I needed the whole container of au jus to eat it.

Drove 4.5 hours with my wife for our 15th wedding Anniversary. Wildfire was not as pricey as some of the dining choices. I found the staff to be polite and respectful. The bread that was brought to the table. This is where it started going down hill. There were 3 types of bread Pumpernickel with fruit in it YUCK, onion roll that was packed with onions, and corn bread that was packed so full with whole kernel corn that long after the bread was gone you were still chewing up the corn. Now on to the entree my wife ordered 3 filet medallions which were cooked to her liking with no complaints. I ordered the Surf and Turf a 10oz filet and a lobster tail. The lobster tail was very small not worth the money at all. The filet was cooked to the right temp but the outside edges were so crusty hard that I've had some beef jerky that was easier to chew. So at the end of the day my wife and I drove 4.5 hours stayed at a hotel and ate a very very very overpriced dinner for what it was. I hope you have better luck.
