Found Wilde's when we were searching for a restaurant near Blue Man Group. It was just two blocks away. The service was very good, the food excellent, and the ambiance fabulous. The best Shepard's Pie ever!

Self-billed as an “Upscale Irish Bar and Restaurant”, Wlde is aptly named for Oscar Wilde, the flamboyant Irish writer and poet. Filled with wood, leather, cozy nooks and quotations, the décor is warm, comfortable and inviting. It was especially nice on a cold evening in December with a glowing fireplace with Dickensian holly and lights everywhere. Reservations are only accepted... More

Part of the restaurant is set up like a library and there is a stained glass ceiling! Our hotel pointed us towards this place, and it was a great tip. Food was great with amazing sweet potato fries. Kind of like dining in turn of the century England, but with better food!

Found the restaurant while walking in the neighborhood near our hotel. What a great restaurant! The staff very helpful and very attentive. We loved the atmosphere, and the food & drink selections. When our server found out that we were on our honeymoon, brought us a complimentary dessert. Definitely will be back, next time in Chicago.

Dinner with friends, group of 4. Attentive friendly efficient service but the chicken pot pie was the star of the night. My friend had the rosemary chicken and said it was prepared absolutely perfect. Wilde has a nice selection of draft beers that change throughout the year. Wilde gets busy in the evening so feel free to enjoy a drink... More

Wilde is a unique place with an incredible atmosphere. Even if not dining, enjoy a drink in the space. The decor is luxurious but tasteful. The service is extremely relaxed and friendly. The food isn't gourmet but wonderful interpretations of bar food and other favorites like Shepard's Pie. Wilde is a treasure that we would not have known about except... More

Restaurant has a wonderful feel to it, very relaxing and cozy. I ordered the Irish curry which was amazing. Didn't know the Irish had curry. My husband ordered the standard Shepherd's Pie. The portions were large and very well prepared. We went there on a recommendation from a local and we were not disappointed.

We all enjoyed our meal. Chicken pot pie, fish and chips and mac-n-cheese were outstanding. Salmon, burger and fries were very good. A little pricey, but at least it doesn't take itself too seriously. Friendly service. Ask top be seated outside or by the windows during nice weather.
