Great atmosphere and food

I love this place in cold weather. Dark paneling, cozy library feel. Named after Oscar Wilde this restaurant has cute little booths and small tables by the library fire. The menu boosts an ever changing beer menu on tap and the oven chicken with mash potatoes is not be missed

We went to Wilde Bar with our 2 year old boy and had great time. The food was good, the seating was great, helpful staff and although it got really busy, everything was served in a timely manner. Quite a fancy Irish Bar and has food options for adults and kids. We sat at a booth but next time, we... More

Love this place. Visit it often when we are in Chicagoland. Never had a disappointing meal. There is such a great variety of options - you can find something for everyone. French Onion soup is tops! We've recommended it often.

We are here before Blue Man Group. The service was perfect and atmosphere is very conducive for a nice family or semi-casual group meal. The menu is large with choices for pretty much anyone. You won't be disappointed.

This is my favorite place to eat while in Chicago and never disappoints. Went on a Saturday night around 8:30 pm, just after New Year's. Place was packed. Was told it'd be a 15-20 minute wait. That was being fifth on the list. They did not disappoint and I was seated rather quickly. Service, despite the packed house, was right... More

We went to Wilde Bar to celebrate a couple of New Year's Day birthdays. It was our first time there in spite of it being exactly a block and a half from my daughter's apartment and we were really pleased with just about every aspect of our evening. I made a reservation for our party of seven but somehow they... More

My husband and I stopped in for dinner prior to seeing Blue Man Group. For New Years Eve, they handled the crowds well. Quick seating, delicious drinks, dinner was wonderful. A bit pricey, but was worth it for a nice NYE dinner.

So, I love this place. Generally speaking the food is always good and the service is usually acceptable to very good. Tonight I came into the restaurant and asked for a quiet table. My first suggestion was the library area where it's generally a little quieter but the hostess said no that's full. Then I suggested the back of the... More

First went for lunch with a friend, next went to dinner with my family. I was very surprised to find out it's a very good restaurant. Definitely recommend for chicken pot pie and (when available on their specials) trout almandine.
