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.

The restaurant is great and the food is delicious. The hostess had a terrible attitude. We had reservations at 6:45pm and came there around 6:10pm. At 6:50pm I asked if our name was called and she said no and there were 2 reservations before us. I said how that can be as we came way early. She said I don’t know what to tell you. Once we were sited the waitress was wonderfully. She was very attentive and communicated great. Even with the restaurant being full she took her time to explain and provide us great customer service. The food was very good.

With great service and very good food, Wildfire rarely disappoints. The noise level can be distracting on a busy weekend night, though. The noise issue is easily remedied by requesting a table on the patio if the weather allows. Very enjoyable outdoor experience there.

I love Wildfire so we will always be back. However, the server we had this time was not that great. No personality and it almost seemed like we were bothering her every time we asked for something, water, extra napkin, etc. I would have asked a bus boy but none of them came around either. The restaurant was packed, but that is nothing new for Wildfire.

For all the criteria in your survey. The Macadamia nut Halibut is our favorite—but it is getting too exspensive to order on a regular basis.

I really like the setup throughout the restaurant. Was not pleased with where my date and I were placed. We were seated all the way in the back (not romantic at all). Noisy and where families were seated. One of the barebacks stared at us half the time. Very uncomfortable. Food was great though and our waitress was very friendly.

Wildfire service is excellent. The waitress was attentive to detail. She made a great connection with the customers. It was very busy for a Thursday, like on a weekend.
If there is a food sensitivity, they pay close attention. LEYE is very concerned.
Excellent crab cakes. Bison meatballs- flavorful. Crab bisque - above average. The halibut is always a winner.
Faroe Islands salmon- recommended. It is a short salmon season. 3 berry pie is a treat.
We wish there were more hard ciders. Angry Orchard is too sweet.

I took my mother here for her 60th birthday. She really loved the halibut and I got the wildfire chopped salad, which was also delicious. The portion sizes are large and neither of us finished our entrees. They also have a nice soup selection. We enjoyed our visit.

The only problem is it feels as if you are being rushed do that they can turn the table. No offer of coffee or after dinner cocktails.

Normally Wildfire has the best steaks around. Our steaks were so over cooked that they were inedible. Our waiter apologized up and down but was unable to take it off our bill. He was willing to have new steaks cooked but everyone else was done eating. Just didn't make much sense.

Another great evening and dinner at Wildfire, Glenview. The food is really excellent and the wait service is TOPS. I and my friends go here exclusively for special occasions such as birthdays, holidays and just to get together. I have never been disappointed by the dinner menu. I tried a new daily special, Domenico steak with special sauce, and like it very much. Great to try new items. The evening was a special event!

Although we have had good food at Wildfire in the past, this time the Cedar Plank salmon was thin and overcooked and therefore not juicy. In addition, the roasted vegetables were charred and mostly brussel sprouts which were not very good. No carrots, peppers or asparagus.

Service was good and they let us talk to our friends for an extended period of time without rushing us.

Had a great dinner at Wildfire. Sat outside and it was a perfect night. Our server Steve was very accommodating and friendly. Was there with a girlfriend and we chatted a lot so he left us alone and didn’t hover.
We decided to split the French Dip sandwich and fries. The beef was cooked to perfection, on the rare side, yet the fries were extra crispy. They always split the dish for us which I love (no split charge).
Usually we have dessert but we weren’t that hungry so we took a pass.
Still it was just a perfect night and a perfect meal.

We booked a celebratory apres High School Graduation dinner at Wildfire for our son. We had a party of 7. Our waiter was courteous, professional, knowledgeable yet not too pushy. Our bread basket was continually replenished our drinks refilled yet we were never rushed or interrupted in the process. Fried calamari appetizer was delicious and not too heavily breaded, Entrees were all quite tasty and cooked to order. The desserts were positively incredible. Overall a satisfying meal and positive experience.

Food is great and so is the service. The noise level is very high, especially near the kitchen, seems we could hear plates clattering the entire time. Suggest to always sit away from the kitchen

Always reliable. Consistently good food across the board, excellent pork chops, ribs, and fish, and a nice array of appetizers. Pork chops with mushroom topping are a favorite for us, and the half-order of ribs is great, and plenty for one. Daily specials are very good and we order them when we want a change from our usual choices. Some salads are really too large, but the waitstaff usually flags out-sized dishes. Portions are generous and main courses pair with excellent side dishes. We seldom have room for dessert. Most of those shown on the dessert tray are very large and sharing is advised. The emphasis here is on very good food served promptly in a friendly and welcoming way. Nothing here is trendy or cutting-edge. It's great for families. Even when the place is very busy--and that is most of the time--service is prompt and friendly. People keep coming back because it is an excellent restaurant with a lot of variety on the menu and because it is friendly and informal and always running smoothly.

Our visit to the Glenview Wildfire was not what we have come to expect. The service was spotty except for the hard working bus boys who made sure our water glasses were always full and our table was always cleared of dirty dishes. The side dishes came out lukewarm - the broccoli was almost raw. The turkey burger was also not very warm. All in all, a disappointing visit - but we know that it is not the usual way things go.
