My second visit to this restaurant. I was looking forward to another 5 star experience. So, I Reserved an hour ahead through OpenTable to make sure my allergies were communicated to the staff. The arrival experience was just “ok” this time. It took a few minutes for us to be acknowledged, despite being a foot from the host. once he confirmed my name, we were guided to a nicely-placed booth not far from the open kitchen.
The room was packed. So far, so good.
Our server asked for a drink order- I was not drinking but my date was- a glass of Italian red. ($13). I asked for lemons for my water and reminded my waitress of my allergies. Our order: Shrimp Cocktail ($13), 10 oz prime rib( $28) served with a side of scalloped potatoes, Chopped salad with grilled chicken. The lemon and wine took forever to arrive, even after we asked a second time. TASTE: My dinner companion liked the steak-cooked perfectly- and the yummy cornbread. My salad was nothing special, I’ve had better at diners. the chicken to salad ratio was off and the chopped vegetables scarce. This salad dropped the score a full point. The inattentive service ( until the check was presented) list the other star.
Would I return to try again? Yes but I would stick to the basics- Filet mug in Pittsburgh style with s nice crusty sear. TIP: avoid the salad- boring.

It was the holiday season so they were a bit over-crowded. Was sitting back to back to another table and the wait staff had to keep squeezing behind me and the person at the other table to get through and it was a tight squeeze so that was a little annoying. If they had moved the tables back a little more or not accepted so many reservations - it would have been more pleasant. It was a lot louder in there than it usually is because of all the people.

I wanted to like Wildfire — I really did. It was my son’s birthday, and our first visit. It was a busy Sunday lunch, and we waited 45 minutes to be served. The food, once it showed up, was good, but to be honest after 45 minutes we were sort of “over it.” The server let us know once that the kitchen was backed up, but it was about 30 minutes into the wait.

The noise level is high - no getting around that. I would try them again if I were shopping and it was at a non peak period.

We have been there many times usually the food is very good this time my steak and a lot of gristle in it and it was just average

I did not send it back because it was a very crowded night lots of Christmas parties and we had already waited about 30minutes 35minutes for our food and we were hungry

It also took 18 minutes to get my flight of wines. That is tooooo long

I will go back again without hesitation. It is a wonderful place to dine

It would rate it a B this time

 (Chicago)·Dined on December 3, 2017

We enjoyed the Sunday brunch for a birthday celebration. The menu had a lot of great options that were both vegetarian and kid-friendly. The portions were just right, we were able to finish what we were served and be satisfied. The desserts were amazing - the baked apple pie skillet was huge and easily shared among 5 adults and 3 kids. If that wasn't enough, they brought out a chocolate cake and a huge scoop of ice cream with fruit for the birthday boy that was on the house.
I had previously gone to Wildfire a couple times in Chicago, and I'm happy to say that the Wildfire at Tyson's was just as good as I remembered the Chicago location to be. The filet medallions never fail to disappoint, and the corn/butternut squash bisque and bison meatballs were a huge hit.
The ambience was lively, without being too loud or noisy. The dining rooms filled up pretty quickly, but never did we feel cramped or overcrowded. I was surprised to see how many kids were there too - it seems like a really nice, upscale restaurant that is very family-oriented and kid-friendly.
The value was excellent too - we were expecting a hefty bill with the appetizer, drinks, dessert, etc., but the bill was very reasonably priced. We will definitely come back again and dine here!

Party of 4. 4 Steaks ordered. 4 steaks overdone. There'a a problem with a steak and chop house not serving steaks at the proper doneness. One steak strip steak was ordered medium and came out WELL done. It was sent back and replaced quickly, but it was ordered med. rare to be on the safe side, and came out very medium.
When you are paying $30-$40+ for a steak, it had better be done to the requested temp/color.
A manager apologized and offered free desserts, of which we ordered 2. That was a very nice gesture and speaks to how much Wildfire cares about customer satisfaction.
Still, there is a big problem in with a steakhouse kitchen that overcooks steaks. I hope they can train the kitchen to put out properly done steaks, and if they do, it will be a place to return to.
Sides are delicious and desserts were delightful.
My cocktail was perfection.
Loved the atmosphere.
Get a booth for great people watching!

Sunday brunch, not a lot of American choices, as they advertise as an American Steak and Salads. A lot of overly fancy choices. I got a $16 dollar salad expecting it to be delicious. It was not. The chicken was tasteless, the salad was mostly iceberg and/or cabbage. Others in the group liked the crab cakes. The burger was average. Service was decent, they kept drinks refilled and checked in on us. I will not go again.

My husband and I went to Wildfire for Thanksgiving. We had been there before for the holiday and enjoyed it. This year was a different experience. The food was okay, not exceptional. We ordered two side dishes from the options available, specifically not choosing brussels sprouts because neither of us like that vegetable. Imagine our surprise when the roasted vegetables turned out to be 90% brussels sprouts! Our waitress swapped out that dish with another dish of roasted vegetables - same unpleasant surprise! Just remove roasted vegetables from the menu if you're just going to serve brussels sprouts anyway. The turkey was okay - dark meat a bit chewy. Beef also okay. Mashed potatoes were good, dessert was good. We may choose another restaurant for our Thanksgiving dinner next year.

we went to Wild Fire for Thanksgiving dinner. it is the first time that we have ever gone to a restaurant for this holiday. I love that dinner was 'family style', as it didn't feel restaurant-like and we were able to serve ourselves! Having seconds for dishes was wonderful and we were able to take home leftovers! And the best part-no dishes to wash!!!! Overall a great experience!

I went with a friend for Wildfire's family style Thanksgiving dinner. We liked the food and there was plenty of it. Although the entrees and vegetable sides were lukewarm, the dishes were tasty. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I'd like to go there again for another holiday meal or brunch to see what type of special menu their chef prepares for those meals.

Although I have been to Wildfire previously and have always had a great meal. This time I went to Wildfire for Thanksgiving. Going to a restaurant for a holiday meal, with a set menu doesn't always work with, even with a great reputation. But I was so surprised! I appreciated that the meal was served family style and not buffet style. The wait staff was great! We were never rushed! Great food! It was a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. Great Job!

Service was great! I always leave Wildfire happy. Both the lunch salad and lunch steak were excellent. My friend and I stayed for a fair amount of time after we finished our meal and the restaurant wasn't bothered at all. Yes its a holiday week, but still kudos to the restaurant for making us feel welcome even after we had spent what we were going to spend!

Loved the ambiance and the service was outstanding. However, I don't understand why everyone thinks they can charge 40$ for a steak. We had 3 different types of meat at our table and they were all just...fine. The desserts looked amazing and we ordered the pumpkin pie which was delicious. All and all, probably a good place to get an app and some drinks, but if I'm going to pay $40 for a steak I'm going somewhere else.

This was our second visit to wildfire at Tyson's Galleria and everything was delicious. The waiter was attentive without being bothersome. He anticipated our needs and made sure the drinks kept coming for our special celebration. Our table had delicious appetizers ( calamari, scallops, crab cakes). For dinner we had surf & turf, prime rib, lamb chops, fish, and filet mignon. Cooked to perfection. Sides were delicious potatoes and roasted veggies. Dessert was also mouth watering. I highly recommend!

We met some business associates at this restaurant. The food was excellent. Their butternut squash soup was the best I've had. The restaurant is quite large with several secluded booths for more intimate meeting, though the table we sat at was still quiet enough so that we could talk easily among four people. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for their food, ambiance, and their fine wine selection.
