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.

“Still Top Notch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

In a five day visit back to Chicago, four of the five restaurants were Lettuce Entertain You. From the start of Wildfire until today, this is still one of the best supper clubs anywhere. The salads is a fantastic starter. We had a large table of friends...filet, salmon, macadamia halibut, skirt steak, chicken, prime rib...all 14 were full & extremely satisfied. As usual the service standard at Wildfire is always beyond excellent. When we lived in Glenview, we ate there every few weeks...and now we know one of the best restaurants we miss from home.

“Good steak and seafood in a fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The Wildfire chain is part of the Lettuce Entertain You restaurant group, which ran some of the best restaurants in the Chicago area when I lived there many years ago. They seem to have gone more mainstream in the intervening period. No more quirky but tasty establishments such as Fritz That’s It or Jonathon Livingston Seafood. But as a steakhouse and seafood destination, Wildfire is a worthwhile choice. Very good food - I tried the swordfish, my guests had the roast beef – all good. Good service, although it faded a bit later in the evening (“late” apparently being after 8 pm on a weekday evening, after which the place started to empty quickly). Fun 1940’s style decor. I’d be happy to go back.

“What a wonderful baby shower!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

On May 11 we had a baby shower for our soon -to-be-mom. Everything from the planning to the dessert was outstanding! The servers went out of their way to make a lovely party. The food was wonderful and plenty of it. Consider Wildfire for your next event.

“Time warp if you go early”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wildfire has a lot of senior citizen patrons who eat dinner early. The booths in the bar are by far the best bet for atmosphere as a result. Just eat the small fillets with various sauces and drink good red wine and relax.

“Always a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

A visit to The Glen is not complete without dinner or lunch at Wildfire...never disappoints. The steaks are delicious, the atmosphere is a 40's supper club, just a fun place to celebrate. I especially like the chopped salad.
