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.

Very Good Meal

We were visiting family in the Chicago area and friends recommended this restaurant. The food and drinks were all very good. Our waiter was attentive. It's the opposite of intimate dining - it's a large restaurant and a bit noisy, but the food was worth it!

We are visiting the local area and were looking for a late lunch, early dinner. After reviewing the menu online, this looked like the place that would satisfy everyones tastes. From the half-chicken to the Bison Burger and a Pizza, the food was prepared well and quickly. Everyone was super friendly and very attentive although the restaurant wasn't particularly busy....

We have been getting take outs from here for years. Particularly their chopped salad. Maybe it is my imagination, but there seems to be more lettuce, less other ingredients and higher prices.

Always a good meal here from a simple burger to surf and turf. A spot in the bar you can catch a game and a nice dinner or a private party room for a special event. Don't pass on the beet salad Their beer dinners are a great way to enjoy the venue

The selection was good (seafood & Steaks plus other dishes) the steaks were very nice, the service was typical American, which always seems a bit false to European visitors. The wine list was pretty good, but it was expensive, which compared to the food which was reasonable. This was a group from work, so the ambiance would be different than... More

The place was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. The place is very busy, but service was quick and friendly. I had the ribeye steak, and in my opinion steaks can't get better than this. A meal after my heart (although too big for my stomach).

This is THE place for after work upscale happy hours in the Glenview area suburbs. If you are already dressed up... go, meet friends and have the martini sampler.... sooooo good. If you need a special meal for an occasion, the lovely atmosphere and food will please everyone. Warm bread to start, baked potatoes are encrusted in salt and yummy.... More

Although a very nice and busy restaurant, we have a had too many steaks lately that were well off the mark when it came to temperatures. The selection of steaks is fantastic, and when the cooks get it right - it's awesome. But there needs to be a better effort of cooking to temp. Salads are always fresh, delicious. Service... More

The Glenview wildfire has one great feature, it's location. We leave nearby and with boys in baseball it's convenient for a take out dinner. The food is fine, nothing great but what you pay for. The problem is their take away service. Three bad service issues in row compel me to write a review. They continually say the order will... More
