Description: Step back in time 60 years 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 quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

My daughters & I visited Chicago for the first time & found this restaurant for our last night. The food was beyond fantastic! Servers were very courteous & quick. Atmosphere was great & I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone living or visiting Glenview or the surrounding Chicago area!

Wildfire in Glenview was an excellent choice. The chopped salad and burgers were incredible and the service at this location is always phenomenal!

I ate at the Wildfire for the first time recently while on business. I sat at the bar. I ordered a medium rare NY strip, and it was cooked perfectly. I had mushrooms and the mashed red potatoes as sides, and they were excellent. The only slight downside about the steak itself was that they seem to prepare using a... More

Fabulous! When we arrived and saw the valet parking, we were nervous that we were under dressed. Then a lady walked un ahead of us in jeans. The hostess made both of us feel like the staff had been waiting just for us. Very pleasant. They are making their own beers now and tonight's beer was very good. There were... More

I have been to this restaurant many times for lunch and dinner. Service is excellent and the food is always prepared correctly. The coconut crusted shrimp is one of my favorites. Other fish dishes are good as well. A pecan encrusted fish of the day is always done right and not overcooked. Steaks are very good but this is not... More

This is strictly a "Saturday night" review. Things are probably not as crazy on a weeknight. A group of 8 of us had an 8 pm reservation for a Saturday night here recently. We knew it would be crowded but we wanted a nice meal. The food was very good. But just want to warn people that this place is... More

We went early on a Tuesday evening. By 6:30 the place was full. The chopped salad for the table started the meal. They serve two kinds of bread which are both great. Two of us had the Scallops. They are not to be equaled. They are always fresh and done to perfection. The four of us had wanted to be... More

ordered the "special" of macadamia nut crusted halibut. It was more like fried whitefish than good thick lightly prepared halibut. It was accompanied by a cloying buttery sauce and asparagus. Mashed potatoes on the side were fine. My wife ordered the supposed wild king salmon which clearly was not. It was coated in a nondescript brown sauce and was horrible.... More

We dined at Wildfire in Glenview for our wedding anniversary, and the evening was perfect. We were seated in one of the quieter rooms of the restaurant and had very attentive service. The wine choices offer flights of whites or reds, where you receive a nice sample of 4 varieties. I chose the Jazzy Reds. The pinot noir and shiraz... More
