Visited again for our annual trip to downtown for Christmas. Third time in last five years, great friendly, attentive service, many menu options for all, above all great food and presentation. Nice classic atmosphere, no rush, and we could hear each other in conversation. Thanks Wildfire! Oh yeah, dessert too

We have dined at many Chicagoland restaurants for Thanksgiving for the past 10 years. This one stands out as our very favorite. While there are many people dining, one did not feel crowded or rushed. The meal was served with choices and family-style. The food was excellent in every way along with our excellent server. Would come back again and... More

This is a great place to dine. The food was good and the staff was friendly. We did the family style Thanksgiving dinner and it was awesome. A little pricey but worth it.

Our waiter was very nice and attentive but our dinning experience was very disappointing. Our Thanksgiving dinner reservation was at 5:30pm and I think they were running out of food, which would explain the odd size food portions served. The turkey was very dry and served with wet mushy stuffing. During dessert a bus boy came out and proceeded to... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants and we do a large company dinner here every show. We had 7:30 reservations and we were seated at 7:45 after the whole party showed up, which was no problem. The major issue was our order was not taken until around 8:30 and we did not get our food until 9:20. This is... More

We had a good time whilst having dinner at Wildfire. The food was good in general. I thoroughly liked the cook on my burger and it was pretty flavorful. The goat cheese dip was not bad. However, the French onion soup was definitely subpar to put it nicely. The service was irreproachable and attentive. Plates were delivered in a timely... More

Had a very nice meal at Wildfire thus evening Nov 5th. Lots of outside construction gave brief pause but indoors it is just lovely and relaxing in its atmosphere, great wait staff, superb mixed drink (Tito's+tonic+limon twist), and a delicious filet medallion trio with three separate crustings: parmesan, double baked potato, and horseradish. Requested medium rare and they nailed it... More

We had a large group which we split into 2 tables. Everyone ordered something different and enjoyed what they ordered. Our server did a wonderful job.

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.
