Service was great. Always a bit loud but we got seated on mynpreferred area so that buffers the noise somewhat.

Salad was great but $25 for a Cobb salad is high. Went with the smaller one. Lunch pricing is better and portions aren’t different.

Food and service were great. The restaurant was in good repair, but smelled a little musty as if the carpets need to be cleaned. Don’t let it discourage you if you like the menu, just hoping the management takes note and thoroughly cleans the dining room.

Showed them my open table reservation, was told they don't have it.. sat us in a back room where it seems they seat people who thought of last minute dinner options for Valentine's day.. the ceiling was leaking.. the waitress disappeared, don't think she smiled once.. usually this place does a fantastic job, but this was just awful.

Great service. The food was not the usual .. dined here many many times and this time meal wasn’t up to par..
The Augratin potatoes looked like they just threw them on a plate, and seemed like a small serving. The beef trio medallions were very skimpy and tough with very little “ crust” toppings on it. The rib eye steak was sooo rare . We ordered it med rare but was so very red and bloody .. our server was great though. My first time ever being disappointed here .

Food was good, but waitress had quote "pushed the wrong button and my salmon turned into chops. They quickly took the chops away, which left my wife picking at her steak while waiting for my'planked' salmon. Manager(?) apologized when brought salmon out....nothing more.

Love to visit Wildfire for the ambiance and great food. Our server was excellent, as usual, very friendly and helpful,as well. Have wanted to try the Southern Fried Chicken special for Mondays and was not disappointed. Enjoyed every bite (although I took some home for a snack). Had 2 drinks and a wonderful evening. Will be visiting again, soon.

Food was great like always. Service was a little slow, we weren’t in a hurry, and it was pretty loud in the restaurant too. It had just snowed so cars in the parking lot were everywhere and anywhere they wanted so that was annoying.

We made reservations well in advance and arrived on time only to wait another 15min and then they seated us in the bar area. We did not make these reservations ahead of time to sit in the bar so We asked to be moved which they accommodated. My fish was delicious but my husbands meal had to be sent back as the steak was chewy. The second round of steaks for him were still not very good but we had to leave soon for a movie. We have gone here for years and the food quality was not the same.

The wildfire was very quaint. I and my wife were impressed with the reservation that were promptly recognized when we walked thru the door and I stated
“RESERVATION FOR WALKER”. Booth or table. Great service began from that point, very appreciative.

Wildfire is a sure bet when it comes to excellent food and friendly service. Originally reserved for 2 but bad weather kept my companion from joining. They treated a single diner with the same care and respect as a group. This is a place I visit every time I am in the Chicago area.

We came in for the Restaurant Week Specials. I had the mushroom crusted fancy pork chop and it was one of the best ones I have ever had. However, the chocolate cake dessert was a disappointment. We came in last year for the same specials and the cake last year was absolutely delicious. This year's was not moist, was not warm and had way too much chocolate sauce on it and when you put ice cream on a piece of cake, make it a decent size scoop not the bite sized one that was on the top of the cake. The pork chop certainly made up for the chocolate cake. All in all, we had a great time celebrating a couple of birthdays with our co-workers.

We love Wildfire, and we wanted a nice dinner. We split a small chopped salad (delicious option!) and each had burgers. Everything was perfection. I love the basalmic roasted veggies as an option for a side dish, and they have bacon and blue cheese as burger options. And yes, they have a great bar selection, YUM!!! We love that it's Lettuce Entertain You, too, so we get points, offers, and free stuff. Yay!
