Didn't eat there. We had a reservation and had requested a table in the bar. When we got there, there were no bar booths available, and the bar was packed. No room to grab a drink and wait. So we took a table in the dining room. It was a terrible location next to the kitchen and in the walkway. We decided to leave.

Atmosphere is loud. Waited a long time to order. Calamari felt like a no show eat only over fried batter. Main dish was average. So for the value this place is overpriced.

The waitress took our order. That was about all she did. The buser replenished our bread, refilled our wines, brought our entrees, took our finished entrees, and then brought dessert. The waitress did however bring us our bill at the end

Filet mignon was a bit over cooked but still good. Creamed spinach was hard to eat because it was overly creamed. Bison meatballs were good. Baked Goat cheese was good. Dessert ice cream cookie was very good. Staff was nice. Noise level was loud.

This place needs to learn the difference between rare, medium and well done. Unforgivable given the prices, which are not cheap.

we've been to this Wildfire many times in the past and must say, each time the quality of the food & the service seems to be decreasing while the prices keep going up. My seafood platter had 3 minuscule scallops, 2 tiny shrimp, a 2 bite crab cake that was mushy and tasted of more filling than crab & a 3 bite piece of salmon that was good. charging a $1.95 up-charge for a plain baked potato as a side dish was surprising. paying $16.15 for one straight up martini is really over the top. the first round of cocktails took over 15 mins to arrive after we ordered -- the server did come to the table a few times to say that the bar was "busy". After we finished eating, we had to ask other servers to find our server to inquire about coffee & dessert. a refill on coffee was never offered. all in all, an OK dining experience, but not at all the EXCEPTIONAL time that we've had here in the past.

There were 2 things that disappointed me. First was the top of a sugar packet at the bottom of my drink and the second was when I asked the server to wrap up the left overs of my bone in ribeye, she discarded the bone. This was something I was looking forward to enjoying at home.

The only thing I was disappointed with was our seating. Usually I request the martini lounge. I made reservations with open table and forgot to submit my request. When the hostess asked where we would like to sit, I ofcourse asked about the martini lounge. It wasn’t available so they asked would I rather sit in the room near the hostess desk is or the main dining room at a booth. I chose the main dining room booth. It was another person that sat us and he brought to the furthest room that’s separated by a byfold door (accordian curtain). I asked the waiter I thought they said there is a open booth in the main dining room? He just shook his shoulders and said that’s where they told him to sit us. I was disappointed for sure and not happy they were unwilling to move us or even try. Live and learning guess. I guess I always have high expectations from Wildfire because it’s usually my favorite restaurant and this is my favorite location as well.

Food was very good. Service was bad. Took waiter about 15 minutes to get to our table. Ordered drinks and apps.

Then ordered dinner. Drinks took about 20 minutes to get to our table. 5 minutes later app and salads arrived. 5?minutes later dinners arrived.

Food was good but no time to enjoy. Won’t go back.

Service was SUPERB! The food was very, very disappointing for the 2nd time in 3 months. Steak was tough and had no flavor - au jus was watered down, baked potato was warm, and coffee was cold. All in all, food was enough of a disaster that I will not be coming back for a good while. The only thing that saved the nigh was the server and the appetizer.

Wildfire was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying it, when we ask for a good restaurant. What a find. We had some of the best food items we have ever had. Our daughter said her steak was the best she'd ever had. We all agreed, especially our 16 year old granddaughter, that the desserts were also top notch superb. Our waitress was absolutely the best! We were in Glenview for my aunt's 100th birthday party. When we told relatives that we had had a superb dinner at Wildfire, they weren't surprised. They love it too! Absolute 5 Star dinner and service. Thank you!

My wife and I had dinner, it was good, that's all. One appetizer, two glasses of wine, two entrees, with tip $120. Not sure its worth that to be truthful, but, if you want a very quiet, older crowd, this would be your place. Service was friendly, tables and surroundings very clean, large parking lot, seated quickly, large bar area with tables if you want to eat, so it all adds up to a good dining experience.

Kale artichoke dip excellent. Mushroom crusted pork chop excellent. French dip excellent. Almond crusted cod - heavy on the crust, light on the fish. Coconut shrimp came out looking too pale. Desert plate was OK. Server was excellent.
