Celebrating my wife’s birthday. Usually the food and service at Wildfire is outstanding. Not tonight. Our salads never came, our appetizer came with my entree, and then my wife’s salad came. I canceled my salad at this point.
To Wildlife’s credit, they took the appetizer and salad off the bill zinc added a nice desert for my wife. Just not a great experience this time

Very pleasant experience. Food was good. Server was great. Gave us time to discuss our business issues even though the place was pretty busy. Some noise, but enough separation.

My boyfriend and I love Wildfire Lincolnshire. We went out with a few co-workers for his birthday. Our server meant well, he had a specific sense of humor that my boyfriend and I seemed to find funny. But our friends felt uncomfortable by some of the comments. We brushed it off, but when we got home about 1 inch and 3/4 inches was cut off from our leftover steak that was packed up. We realized it was probably so the steak could fit in the box, and if it were a smaller amount it wouldn't be a big deal. But it was upsetting because we did pay a good dollar for that steak and we should have gotten it all. Thank you for sending us the opportunity for writing a review.

My steak was ordered medium and it came out blue. My daughters was ordered medium rare and came out well done. I chose not to get a new steak as I couldn't see waiting that long again and eating when my family as finished. Service was slow. It took so long to be offered dessert that we opted out and grabbed a pie on the way home.

I would still recommend Wildfire, but this was a bad experience that I thought the restaurant could have handled better.

This used to be a great place for special occasions and a good night out. Service is now rushed, food not as good and drinks watery, a lot of ice and very expensive.
$16.50 for a martini which was 3/4 of the glass. Becoming a “chain” restaurant and not so special anymore. Appears to be understaffed and cranking people in and out. Too bad.

The service was terrible. We ordered a glass of wine at the start when we ordered salad. We never saw it until the entree arrived. I asked for lemon and eventually it arrived but it was a lime instead. I had to asked for water but they never filled water without me asking except at the end. At a restaurant, with their prices, this service is unacceptable. They stopped providing two small loaves of bread but instead give pieces. I love lettuce entertain you but this was a poor experience.

Our reservation was for 6:15 pm. We waited for 15 minutes for our table. The problem with our meal was that we were seated at 6:30 and by 7 pm we were done. There was no spacing between our salad and main course. We felt rushed and that made for a unpleasant feeling. This is the kitchen’s fault, not our waiter.

We ordered the Grouper it was dry, not what we are used to from them. And no toilet paper in the women's washroom which is unacceptable. The manager I told was rude. Very unhappy with the evening.

I've enjoyed other WIldFIre locations, and this one has been good for lunch, but this dinner was mediocre, at best. Several steaks were overdone, scallops rubbery and another steak was taken back TWICE by the server as "medium" was under done. The table was near the cooking area so there was so much commotion and so many people surrounding us, we couldn't have any real conversation. With other steak houses on Milwaukee Ave, try them as this was ridiculously overpriced for the value. On positive note, they did provide dessert for the birthday occasion, but in overall scheme, couldn't make up for the experience.

I went Friday for the anniversary with my husband and the server was just excellent.
He was smart, fast and polite. Also he saw that my husband's meat wasn't red but medium and with no problems he changed the steak.
Also he brought us a dessert, because of our anniversary , and it was offered from the restaurant.
I totally love Wildfire

We went there for my Wife's birthday. We hadn't been there in a while, and we forgot how good the food was. The service was excellent, and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Wildfire is one of our favorite restaurants. They have great hamburgers and steaks. I understand the new cod is excellent.
