Overall enjoyed our experience. Would definitely return again mainly for meeting friends or special occasions. Walleye disappointing - was more like stew than fillet. Should have read the menu closer, I guess.

We've had many excellent visits to Wildwood and unfortunately this one was terrible (and our first bad experience). We all ordered steaks (2 x Cowboy Rib-eye & 2 x Rib-eye) and they were definitely not to the usual standard, tough, dry etc. We did complain and got a reduction in our bill, but that wast the point. Service was excellent but the food quality definitely spoiled the occasion.
Will have to seriously consider returning!!

I was disappointed with having to send my steak back and I was not the only person other people around me he the same problem. Plus it was extra for a vegetable with my wife's fish. Niche includes vegetables with there dishes for the same price range dinner.

A group of friends got together for the Geneva Christmas walk and cane here for dinner. Because of the special day, it became very crowded and I think the wait staff was overwhelmed. We asked for separate checks and did not get them, and one of us was given an appetizer destined for a different table. OK for us, but not so much for the other folks waiting. Food was great though and the wine list was outstanding.

Good ambiance and service. Disappointed with the Prime Rib, not very lean or tender, we wouldn't recommend. The other entre ordered was the Lobster Wedge salad, this entre was a keeper, good lettuce wedge and plenty of lobster pieces.

Our party of 6 had a great dining experience at Wildwood; I'll definitely be going back. The menu was a good mix of standard (steak, tuna) and not-so-standard (skate, escargot) choices, and provided a good number of options without being overwhelming. We each got an entree and shared several appetizers; everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The dining room was separate from the lounge - and the loud live music in the lounge - and laid out to keep the noise level down. Service was professional and attentive without being intrusive. Nice job, Wildwood!

Been here a few times. Food is always great. Great beer list. Diverse menu. Food portions are always large at most restaurants so I like to split dinner, which they don't do here, but I just ask for an extra plate. Great place to try something different.

Wildwood is our favorite go-to place in Geneva. Always good food and good service. We like to sit in the bar area and get the same great service. Friday night I had the prime rib and my wife had the seared tuna. Both were awesome. The prime rib was a very generous cut and a perfect medium rear. Tuna was barely seared just as it should be and tasted incredible. They were out of our favorite Rombauer Zinfandel, but they suggested an alternate and it was great. Can't go wrong with Wildwood.

This was our second time visiting Wildwood and will definitely come back again. We sat outdoors to enjoy one of the last nice days of the Fall season. Food is wonderful with some of the usual fair sprinkled with more original tastes. The quiche was quite good and service was pleasant and fast. We have come here twice for lunch and have not been disappointed. Next time we will try dinner.

We came for our anniversary brunch. Our service was impeccable. We had the breakfast side of brunch and it was all really good. Then at the end we got a dessert on the house. They have a very nice patio overlooking a little garden area. We will definitely be coming back to Wildwood.

We dine here often. Until last Friday we never had a bad experience but on that night there was a group of 10-12 people that were so loud that even though we were on the opposite end of the restaurant. we had to lean over to talk to one another. This group was very rude and disrupted the dining experience and our disappoitment is that no member tooik any action to quiet them down. Perhaps, they were more interested in increasing the bar bill that considering the dining experience of the rest of us. Normally this restaurant is a great place to dine but it will be some time before we return based on our last experience.

The food was good. Sevice was good, but it seemed the wait staff was RUNNING (literally) every time they came into the room. One waiter actually hit my chair. He apologized and ran on his way. We all noticed it and commented on it. You need to slow down. It rushed things. Also, it was very noisy for a conversation. It was good food, but I;m going to wait to return.

A marvelous restaurant in a suburb blessed with many fine dining choices. The food (fish specials; e.g. Ahi Tuna) are prepared tantalizingly. Moreover, the wine list offers a plethora of choices while providing good value. Furthermore, the service is friendly without being obtrusive. In addition, the ambiance provides a romantic, relaxing setting. I unequivocally recommend Wildwood Restaurant in Geneva, Illinois for anyone interesting in experiencing delectable food, wine, attentive services and charming ambiance.
