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.

We went to have a celebration lunch with my son who just went thru boot camp. Service was awesome. Food was great. Manager came out to thank him for serving and had many words of encouragement for my son. It made my eyes water the sincere appreciation and encouragement they gave my son! I highly recommend them for food that... More

Ordered the larger cut of filet, cooked rare, and it did not disappoint. Excellent flavor, not a speck of fat, the knife slid thru it almost like it slides thru butter, and it was cooked to perfection. The roasted vegetables were crisp and delicious, but way to greasy to be plain roasted; there was either oil or butter on them... More

Wildfire serves up great steaks, albeit expensive ones. The food is prepared exactly as ordered and the cut of meat is wonderful. The prices are high, but you won't feel like you were robbed once you bite into the meal. The only real downside to this place is it is located on a corner of a fairly busy intersection, and... More

We had minimal expectations for our last meal after five grueling days surrounding Northwestern's graduation weekend gala. It was just down the road from the hotel, Tripadvisor reviewers called it the best place to eat in Glenview, so we thought it was worth a try. What happened when we came inside turned out to be one of the best dining... More

My first time here and liked the seating with comfortable booths. Noisy but enjoyed the menu with ample choices. Waiters and waiters where abundant but we waited 5 minutes for a waiter. subsequent service remained slow through out our dinner.

Booked a banquet at Wildfire in Glenview for 80 persons. Service was excellent. Banquet manager was helpful throughout the process and the wait staff was very good. We had several guests who had food allergies and Wildfire was able to accomodate their needs with no drop off in food quality. Family style dining included the tenderloin tips and macadamia crusted... More

We wanted to eat steaks, fish and shrimp so we were advised to go to the Wildfire . We made reservations in advance as we were 9 people. We arrived on time and everyone ordered something else and we all tried everything. The best dishes were: the house specialty, Horseradish crusted filet wrapped in applewood smoked bacon. It was a...

Went here with my wife and several of my in-laws. After we left, I could understand why it was packed on a week night. The food and service were probably the best I have ever had. It may be a bit pricey, but not to the extreme that it would limit the clientele. Everyone truly enjoyed the food and service.... More
