Great wine list as well! Return: yes soon Discovered: we have been... More

I have been to Wildwood several times and the last 2 times the food has been disappointing. I had the sliced sirloin steak sandwich and it was very fatty and they gave me gravy instead au jus for dipping. We ate inside and there were nats flying around our table and food. We told the waiter and he said they... More

Celebrated our 40th Anniversary and had our usual waiter, Dave. He is very courteous and attentive. The prime ribs we had were very good and the lemon angel cake and sorbet were excellent. I have been here for luncheons, business meetings, Easter, Mother's Day and other special events. I would still come back here for that special meal. There is... More

We had Father's Day dinner here and it was delicious and delightful. Charming décor and excellent waiter (Jose) contributed to a great dinner. Goat cheese appetizer was different and very good. Wedge salad and baby greens salad were perfect size and delicious. I had the Seafood Risotto which had three huge perfectly cooked scallops and three huge shrimp in a... More

We've eaten here multiple times--both dinner and brunch, inside and outside. The food may not knock your socks off but it never disappoints. It's good solid food and very well done. I was there with family and I ordered a strip steak and my son-in- law ordered a porterhouse. Both were perfectly cooked exactly to order--I ordered mine "blue" (charred... More

My husband and I chose the Wildwood Restaurant as the place to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary because we saw that they serve Escargot as an appetizer. The escargot was delicious, as were the Wedge salad and the Baby Greens salad with creamy basil dressing. We both chose an 8-oz. filet mignon, done exactly medium rare, as we had ordered.... More

The decor is charming, a wealth of dark wood and glass. It is an open kitchen, but well ventilated. The bar is a separate room which I would imagine controls noise level during busier times. We were there for brunch and seated promptly as reserved. Service was prompt, pleasant and professional by each staff person. Bellini's were not on the... More

We ate dinner here on a Saturday night for the first time and loved the place but unfortunately the service we had was poor. Just didn't get a warm welcome from the server. No specials or helpful hints on what's good. Was promised someone to come and dress the baked potato my husband ordered but nobody ever came and it... More

Here's the deal. We are not food snobs BUT we are blessed to have travel extensively throughout the world. People can say what they want based off their experiences and that's great. Bottom line, Wildwood is one of the BEST restaurants west of Chicago and here's why. When offered, fresh fish is excellently prepared. Wine list - something for everyone.... More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Wildwood last night. We began in the bar and enjoyed the company of the male bartender (sorry I didn't get his name). We learned all about the town and upcoming events. He also set up a ride for us back to the Herrington. We then dined in the restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly... More
