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.

A late lunch at Wildfire was excellent. Kristen provided fast service in a very professional way. The food was outstanding. The best chicken in Glenview. The mash potatoes are incredible. The blackberry pie was delicious.

The food and service was great as usual, the only thing is that when I made the reservation l wrote a note that it was our anniversary, nobody even mention it, so for a special occasion I wouldn’t go back, but for a good meal yes.

Wildfire service is outstanding with Nicholas. Excellent crab cake appetizer. There is even crab shell in some of the meat.
Good seafood bisque. Good bison meatballs. Duck special, once a week. Flavorful. Skin could be crispier. Cherry sauce is excellent. Current rice mixture is not as good as prior vegetables. Peachblueberry pie - excellent.

I have been to this location several times. This time I found the service to be rather slow. We sat outside so maybe that made a difference. My sister had broccoli with her dinner and said it was hard so the waitress took them back and brought them out again and she still complained about them being too hard for her. The waitress did not do anything more at that point. It took a very long time for the waitress to bring the check and then return with the receipt. However, I like the food, the ambience, etc. that I would definitely come back.

The service was great. Our waiter was very personable and helpful. My friend and I enjoyed our meal a great deal. When a restaurant is expensive, I prefer the noise level to be significantly lower. We had a 7:00 reservation and as the crowd thinned, I enjoyed being there more. I would go back.

This dinner was exceptional due to our server. We were soooo looking forward to a gold old turkey dinner but were told, they had run out of turkey. After voicing our disappointment and ordering other items we asked our server what time he would suggest we arrive for dinner to be certain of the turkey entree. He suggested a 6pm or earlier. While enjoying our chopped salad and a cocktail, our WONDERFUL server arrived with our entrees and to our surprise, he had somehow talked the kitchen into getting 2 wonderful TURKEY DINNERS. We could not have been more pleased. Thank you to our server and the staff at Wildfire Glenview. We'll be seeing you again sonn.

Always good food and service.
Did not like our table in aside room.
I prefer the main dining room but don't like to be"that customer " that needs to complain about the little things.
Was my mother's birthday and they acknowledged but would prefer the main room and I will be that customer next time.

We’ve been dining at Wildfire for years. We enjoy their steaks. This was the first time we’ve ever ordered burgers. My husband enjoyed his burger very much. However, mine had a burnt taste to it. I should’ve sent it back, but I didn’t want to wait for a replacement.

Our server was superb!

Love to visit Wildfire! It is my favorite dining spot. The food is beyond great and the service can't be matched. I always feel relaxed and at home when I'm there. I also love to "people watch" to see if others enjoy it as much as I do.
