Description: Step back in time 60 years to when going out for dinner meant something...
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.

Celebrated my wife's B-Day with a late lunch at Wildfire. She had received a Lettuce Entertain You $15.00 off coupon and we used it there. My Grouper was outstanding, she wasn't crazy about her BBQ Chicken due the sauce. The service was great and when our waiter read the coupon, brought a complimentary dessert. Overall we had a nice time.... More

Went for Mother's Day. Expected it to be crowded and it was. Waiter didn't even greet us, just came to our table and asked for our order. It was obvious they were trying to get us in and out fast. Calamari was served covered in oil. Looked like they threw it on the plate directly from the fryer. Had to... More

We just left your restaurant shortly after ordering. First, we walked in and the hostess was impolite. My brother went to put his name in, figuring you were running a wait, and the hostess said, "well you know it's a 30-40 minute wait, do you want a high top at the bar?" He has just specified that we had a... More

If you love Lettuce Entertain You restaurants this is another fine example of them staying on message. As always good service and a wide range of dining selections. If you like pork chops their Mushroom Crusted ones are excellent. In season, they have a nice patio for outdoor dining, you hardly know that Lake Street is just behind the landscaping.

Wildfire in the past was always our place for steaks and special occasions, whether it be mother's day, birthdays, etc.... Our last visit was July 2014..but prior to that visit, we were starting to not be impressed by their steaks.. Most in party ordered porterhouse or bone in ribeye steaks... Let me say this, the steaks are Outback tasted tons... More

Too much rave about good food, large portions and noisy distracting atmosphere. Service is too quick and without personality. Cocktails are pricey but well made.

I've frequented many steak houses in Chicago and the surrouding suburbs the past 25 years and one of the best is Wildfire in Glenview. My favorite is the tender ribeye. I'm so spoiled by it that it's very difficult for me to order anything else on the menu. I'm not an appetizer person but I rave about their Caesar salad... More

Wildfire is a restaurant that will always result in a great meal, but it is not a restaurant to go to as a "spur of the moment" choice unless you are content eating at the bar. Making a reservation is your best bet

Really liked the atmosphere here and the service was great. Food quality was alright however I ordered the potatoe crusted scallops with sautéed spinach and there was basically no seasoning on it. The French onion soup was delicious however everyone else in my party was just moderately impressed with the food overall. The carrot cake is fabulous! This place is... More
