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.

Always a nice dinner

Nice place for a chain restaurant. The chopped salad is great. We have had many thing on the menu here and it's always consistent. The drinks are good and the service equally good. We always sit at the bar and the bartenders are very attentive.

A great restaurant should be neither snooty nor try too hard to attract you to walk through its doors. Wildfire strikes a perfect balance, with the exterior of the building, and the classy interplay of yellow & cobalt-blue lighting highlighting the interesting texture and creating an intrigue that has it not being showy or loudly calling you. Instead, you are... More

Wildfire in Glenview is one of the best places to dine around this area. The steaks are Always cooked to perfection every time we order. The entries for other dinners I have had have all been very good. Once in a while my roasted veggies come out just luck-warm! Generally it's all pretty darn consistent! The key lime pie is... More

The restaurant is very popular and deservedly so. You can eat outdoors in the summer and lunch in the open air is very enjoyable. I love their chopped salad with blue cheese and their onion bread as well as dark bread with raisins is great to eat while waiting for your entrée.

Always very busy so can be a bit noisy. Service is excellent and food always top notch. Has complimentary valet parking. Make sure to call ahead for a reservation. Our reservation was honored right on time.

This was my first time at this Wildfire location and the food was just as good as the one in Oak Brook. I would definitely make a reservation because this place was crowded even for an early dinner. We ordered the prime rib, porterhouse steak, and the petite strip steak. All of them were cooked perfectly and the prices were... More

This is a very good restaurant. But it falls just a little short of my expectations. I am old school and remember the great old restaurants in Chicago, Doros, The Cricket, The Cape Cod Room. They had wonderful atmosphere and even if loud nothing like the noise level here. The food was very good, service was wonderful our waiter excellent!

Nine family members, ages 1 - 60, visited Wildfire on a Thursday evening. The restaurant was completely full, bustling and therefore very noisy. The menu is extensive, with a "supper club" vibe, and the food is reliably good - great salads, good steaks, prime rib, seafood; generous, very tasty desserts. This is not "farm to table" or froo-froo in any... More
