Breakfast/brunch is not their forte based on what we ordered. Red skin potatoes were cooked to death. Poached eggs were cooked to almost hard boiled. Chicken salad was loaded with the spice of rosemary. Service was excellent. Won’t be back for brunch.

O.M.G Jose was wonderful! He gave great recommendations for dinner, was efficient, and had a kind presence. The seafood risotto was heavenly! Our friends had the prime rib and cowboy steak, which was upgraded to the Oscar so it had a sauce with crab... Oh my, the steak melted in your mouth. It was my birthday and it was a great way to celebrate! I will certainly be back, I've heard the brunch is delicious. Thank you!

Varied menu with everything we've ever had being very well prepared. Service is usually attentive and while expensive, not unreasonably priced. Often too loud for a normal conversation, especially on busy nights. Good wine list.

My husband ordered his filet mignon medium well and butterflied, it came not butterflied and was still mooing when cut into. After sending it back, it was returned minutes later cut in half and slathered in gravy. Still mooing. They comped our meals and my husband sent his plate back. The fact that the manager brought it back the 2nd time without checking doneness is what really annoyed us.

This restaurant is "fine". My main course was $30 - a Pork Chop - which I ordered Medium and it was over cooked. I ordered brussel sprouts as a side and they seemed as though they were boiled and then a few pieced of bacon were thrown in. We ordered dessert and mine came out wrong the first time. It was ice cream (easy). The second arrival was half melted. I dine out often. It's frustrating when you pay a premium and the food is lousy. Wouldn't go back. Waitress was great though...

The Wildwood Restaurant offers the best steak that you can buy in the Fox Valley. It is consistently excellent, and so is the service. My wife and I are regulars, and will continue to be. Melissa was our server this week, and she is outstanding.

Went to Wildwood for a celebration dinner. Food was excellent and service was attentive. A bit pricey, and their seasonal menu is out of date (listed October through January for our May visit), but otherwise a real gem.

Lost our orders, but never tried to make it up to us . Server was sweet and apologetic, management didn’t even offer dessert as compensation. When a salad takes an hour, and you sit for over an hour to eat, management should at least offer something seeing it was their fault!

Hello! My name is Patrick Neary and I am the owner of Wildwood. I was not working last night, but I would like to get some more information from you if possible. First, I would be pleased to send you a gift card as an apology if I can get your name and address. It also seems something is wrong with the explanation you were given and I would like to get a little more information in the spirit of improving our service. My apologies for the unsatisfactory experience.

It was a very nice selection to choose from. Even though we were later still a lot to choose from as they kept stocking the food choices. Kind staff and service was good. It was busy so they did their best to prioritize us as a customer . Very happy to have the opportunity to eat out and not have the clean-up.

The food was fair to mediocre for the price point. While the menu appears diverse and inventive, execution was lacking. Steaks and seafood were not prepared as ordered (i.e rare came out medium, medium ended up being well done and the fish was unseasoned and meh). We will not be returning and would not recommend this restaurant.

We make it a point to go to Wildwood at least once a month. You can't beat the prime rib special for lunch on Sunday. The service is top drawer and one is treated as a very special guest. Great food, excellent service, what more could you ask for.........treat yourself to a wonderful time. You will be glad you did.

This is set in nicest part of Geneva. Inside the deep woodgrain walls and high ceilings and low lights set for romantic atmosphere. Yet, the dress code is relaxed and you can either dress up or go in clea, denim jeans alternately.

The food is prepared by chef with a flare for unique flavor combinations.

Very relaxed, casually elegant restaurant. Service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry so wasn't a problem. There were four fish specials with chef recommendations. I ordered what the server suggested and it was delicious. Will return to enjoy the outdoor seating when the weather allows.
