Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Met some out of town relatives here for a meal. The menu had something for everyone and the food was high quality and tasty. Take a look at the menu online before visiting to assure that it fits into your price range - some of the dinner entrees are upscale. Our waitress went above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable. We will be back.

Wildfire is usually great. Today the food was better than outstanding. Thanks to Jill and the kitchen. Service was very good provided by Chris. We started with a Wedge Salad that was beyond delicious. And then OMG Wow! The Halibut was the best fish I have ever had in Chicago. Just cooked to perfection with a slight crispness on the edges and flaky and tender. I ate it slowly. It was paired with broccoli. We couldn’t have dessert. I was thinking could a meal be much better. Thank you Jill and Linda.

It's Lettuce Entertain You, so it's got to be solid

Primarily a "supper-club steakhouse", it's got good quality steaks (not prime) and LOTS of options for any and all to find something.

Tuna Tartare was very tasty and fresh

Porterhouse was a sizeable steak and cooked as asked (Pittsburgh Rare), though under-seasoned. I'd ask for a steak to be pretty heavily seasoned next time.

Sides are good. Nice creamed spinach, very good asparagus and an AWESOME double baked potato.

Service is friendly and affable.

We always enjoy Wildfire. Through the years, it's had excellent food, great value and fine service. Other restaurants and chain have come and gone; Wildfire stays consistent - and always a destination.

Our waitperson, Nick, was great. He had a great sense of humor and offered great advice. There was a slight issue because they were out of a few items but it was handled very well by Nick and the restaurant manager and we were satisfied with the outcome. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will be back soon.

I had dinner at Wildfire Lake Street (Glenview) to celebrate a birthday dinner for a business partner. In the past my experience has always been good at your restaurant. However, this time, July 3 - I had a very disappointing experience. The service was poor, the attitude of the server was arrogant, and basically just wanted to get rid of us as soon as possible. And, she did not serve 1/2 of the order that I submitted. (I did not get what I ordered). I have an allergy to garlic and she did not want to help me to oder something that would meet my needs. Very sad.

I am telling you this hoping that your supervisor can speak to the servers and remind them to be professional, courteous and get things right.

Great service matched with great food is Wildfire. The Salmon with wild rice was very delicious. Very good ice tea on a hot afternoon. My friend had his favorite. A cheeseburger with fries and a Coke. I’ll mention it again “Great Service” by everyone.

Calamari - somewhat greasy. The crunch on seafood is good. There is better calamari in the LEYE
system. A little disappointing. Power greens salad - good. Pieces are almost chopped too small.
Terrific halibut. Good sea scallops. Recommend blueberry pie. Excellent crust.

my 15 year old grandson and i were there for dinner.
i ordered a gluten free angus burger, no cheese
our food arrived and my burger was a gf chicken sandwich with avacado and bacon. my grandsons burger was fine.
it took a while to find Johanna our server but she took the wrong food away. my grandson finished his meal before i got what i ordered. i took some of my food home, i
was very unhappy with the situation.
i’m a frequent diner and this wasn’t typical of Wildfire.
was she a new server??!?!

Linda always takes care of us. Our booth was ready and Mary Kath was wonderful. Just great service. We started with a nice bottle of MacMurray Pinot Noir. We had a delicious wedge salad. Very fresh and crispy. We shared the Barbecue Ribs and Chicken with sweet potato and applesauce. Incredible. We were going to have the Blueberry pie but, we were pleasantly stuffed. Another great dining experience at Wildfire.

Wildfire consistently has delicious preparations. The three of us enjoyed the macadamia encrusted halibut and weren’t disappointed. The noise level continues to be an issue so we opted to eat in the lounge area. Really do wish they would do something about the noise. It is definitely a consideration when we choose a dining spot. You may refer to it as “energetic “, but it’s just TOO loud!

Don't give reviews because I feel I am marketing for others, BUT really really nice place. Should have tried long ago. Friendly attentive staff ( gave a desert to my wife because noticed I have given her a present). No wait with reservation. Don't tell anyone else. Chic.
