We loved every part of our dining experience. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. The only thing is the scallops were so so small and for the price it didn’t make sense. Otherwise everything was delicious and wonderful!

Enjoyed a great Valentine’s Day off the special menu. I cannot believe that we received four excellent courses, with a giant salad & entrees for $95. What a great deal. Service was excellent, ambience was nice.

First time dining here and I was very pleased with the service and excellent wine. I was even more impressed by their New York strip streak with parmesan crust. OMGGGGG!! the most tender steak I have ever had! Never eating another steak unless its a Wildfire steak!

Wildfire is a favorite restaurant because the food is consistently fresh and well prepared. The cocktails are excellent. The desk staff accommodated us although we arrived early. Our waiter, Matt, ( I think )was outstanding.

Great food and service (Art was very attentive), beef medallions with the horseradish topping was better than either the Parmesan or Bleu cheese, but those were not bad either. Portion was a little on the small side, but left room for the peanut butter cup dessert, which was perfect. Not too sweet. Nice quiet at 11:30 turned into bustling at noon when the majority of people arrive for lunch.

We went to Wildfire for my husband's birthday. He opted for the special - Filet Wellington. It was good but he was disappointed that he didn't just order a filet. I had the New York strip which was excellent. The atmosphere is warm and cozy but where we sat was a bit noisy. Service was good. Waitress was very busy and did not stop to ask how we liked our food or if we needed anything after our meal was served. We both really like this restaurant and consider it our "go-to" for great steaks.

Calamari was really oily and overly salty. My medium rare bone in rib eye was instead rare and they had to take it back to cook it more. Worst meal I’ve had there at what I previously considered my favorite restaurant.

Very hit or miss. I had guests from outside USA. Waitstaff's explanation of the menu was abrupt . No mention of the Chicago Restaurant Week special menu , which I located and requested the MahiMahi entree la carte . Turned out while not on the main menu this was the best item at our table. When offering sides, waitstaff jumbled our order and ended up taking orders (2) roasted vegetable among 3 people. She might have noted and made other suggestions. The appetizers were good..Tuna Tartare and bacon wrapped Scallops. The Scallops entree was paltry. A scattering of 7-8 quarter-sized scallops that looked like left-over hash-round potatoes on an oversized plate. I noted my guest was finished her entree almost before others had 2-3 bites. Unsubstantial to have on the menu if this is the quality of the mollusk on hand . The Mahi was grilled perfectly and moist. The Filet Mignon butterflied to cook evenly, but not very flavorful. Dessert chocolate cake was "OK". Desserts here come on a tray with too much Crisco shown because nearly everything is topped with fake icecream. They appear almost unappetizing because they look so plastic . The dessert choice seems rather boring. Too much flour crumb, meringue, and whipped topping. Lacking imagination. About the only + value was the drinks which were nearly 100% gin and vodka w/ very little vermouth.

We went to Wildfire for restaurant week. We had the $22 lunch special. I got the mushroom crusted porkchop with a salad, creamed spinach and the flourless chocolate cake. The food was great and our waitress was very accommodating. She introduced us to their rewards club App so we can start earning points toward money back.

The 5 Wildfire locations in Illinois are all consistently awesome! The filet mignon melt in your mouth. They are the very best. I enjoy their all of their salads, the delicious baked sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli. Awesome service as well. I drink club soda w/lime and they are always quick to refresh my glass. My family especially likes to celebrate there during the Christmas holidays. The seating is comfortable and tables are not too close to each other...you must visit one of these fine restaurants as soon as you can - you will not be disappointed.

Wildfire has been our "go-to" restaurant for a little while now. We an count on our experience and it is usually spot on. On this visit, we decided to just try a couple sandwiches (French dip) for the first time. I guess I didn't know how much difference there even could be in darned sandwiches between one place and another. This, again, was large and exceptional. Finally, our server was bright, fun and very attentive. Whether we order steaks and chops, or as this time, a sandwich, we have wonderful service. Once again, Wildfire gave us more than we expected.
