Second time in a row when the steak was undercooked. Had to send back to cook more and came back over cooked and without the charcrust seasoning. One side dish at our table was very hot and the other was Luke warm. Very disappointing experience for spending $200. Doubt that we will be back except to redeem all our points on final time!

Food was what you would expect, not outstanding but good. By biggest compliant would be with the staff, especially the front of house staff. They all seemed like they hated their jobs and didn't want to be there, and overall were just not friendly. The lady at the host desk being the exception

The food was excellent, our sever had an attitude! It took over 15 minutes to get out drinks, but our food did come out on time. She asked me how I wanted my steak cooked and I said medium, but it was really rare. She never asked about how to cook the steak sandwich. Towards the end of dinner she did seem to warm up. I think she was mad that we didn’t order any appetizers.. we did have a beer and 4 glasses of wine.

Wildfire is a great place to meet up with friends. I like to sit in the bar area and there was an available booth there. We were left alone to catch up and our server occasionally checked in on us. The food was good although I’ve had better fried calamari at a different restaurant.

Stopped in for lunch after a movie .
We had a great server and our meal was excellent.

I had the roasted chicken which was enough to bring home for leftovers. Very tasty, as well.

We went to Wildfire-Glenview on a cold Friday night in January and the dining room was packed. Wildfire has a deserved good reputation based on consistently prepared good food and a hearty menu. A restaurant experience needs more than good food to create a positive experience. It needs good service! On this night Jill, the manager, was seen seating people with a smile, bussing tables, picking up fallen items off of the floor, taking cell phone pictures when requested, helping an elderly lady get seated--she was constantly helping her guests and fellow staff. Jill and her team exemplified what a service team is about and along with the quality of the kitchen is the reason people keep returning to Wildfire.

Wildfire seems to keep improving. The menu is so varied, with daily and rotating specials. Service is prompt and professional. Prices are fair, both for food and drink. This place is best known for steaks, but seafood also abounds. On this occasion (we are repeat diners!) my wife had Caesar salad (authentic!) and a huge delicious roast duck that was more than enough for her, and two doggie meals! I had classic baked onion soup that was as good as any I’ve had, followed by tenderloin tips in whiskey sauce...a lot of delicious tender beef that really satisfied! Desserts looked amazing but we had no room; our bottle of red blend took its place. Just great in a old school atmosphere!

Wildfire has something for everyone. It has simply terrific food. The salmon is always a top choice, and the chopped salad is the best around. The beer selection was surprisingly good also. They treat you well for birthdays. The service was attentive.

Our dinner @ Wildfire was excellent. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. Our waiter was friendly, competent and helpful, but not intrusive. The chopped salad was excellent, as were the petite filet and lamb chop entrees. Desert was excellent, and complementary on the occasion of our wedding anniversary. Only the late arriving drinks spoiled an otherwise perfect evening.

When our foursome gathers for dinner, we always choose Wildfire. This may have been the last time. When our server finally arrived, over 10 minutes from when we sat at the table, he acted like he was racing for a fire and the service was abominable. It took another 45 minutes to receive our salad and soup. Our entrees took 45 more minutes to arrive and two of the four had to be sent back because they were cold, one was undercooked and the other was almost raw. Though replacement entrees were brought fairly quickly, only one was fine and the other was totally overlooked and tasteless. We asked for bread four times and didn't receive any. The server asked us about dessert and we could only reply that, based upon the amount of time we had already been at the restaurant (almost three hours!), we probably did not have enough time before it would close. He agreed. What a disappointment.

My Beef Wellington was well done & the pork chops my friend ordered "Medium Rare" came well done. My husband ordered the Salmon & the pc was an END pc as well as it was half the size he is Normally used to.
I have been ordering the Beef Wellington for some time & I have Never had it Well done. When it is ordered they even advise that it may be Medium Rare.
They asked if we wanted the dinners to be remade but How could we say yes if we are there to eat dinner for a Birthday party & we were already there for some time when they brought our plates.
Wish I did not have to write any of this. I used to talk so Highly about Wildfire in Glenview.

We had reservations for 6:00 on a Saturday and we asked to be in the bar, perfect. However, the service was extremely slow. It took awhile to get the drinks, my old fashion was ok, my friend had a manhattan and loved it. We ordered an appetizer, salad and entrees and for some reason the waiter thought I wanted my salad before the appetizer even arrived. I order the Saturday special, Beef Wellington, I was advised it would be medium rare, when it finally arrived and it was medium. The waiter took it away and was replaced immediately.

I have loved the restaurant in the past and will continue to go, but this time we walked out 3 hours later, it was a long dinner.

I have severe and complicated food allergies, I have a lot of allergies, and I can’t stress enough the absolute professionalism, care, attention to detail and welcoming service I received! The Manager Jill brought their ingredient book out to me so we could review the ingredients in items that might have contained my allergens. They were so kind, helpful, and really took seriously my allergies. I am sensitive to how daunting my allergies can be for a busy kitchen, but in no way did I feel I was a challenge for them! I have dined safely with them for years, and now they are going even above and beyond their excellent service, with superior attention to allergens and the overall quality of my experience. Oh, and the food is wonderful and tasty!
