Just really excellent proteins and dessert...if there was a side dish or bread, it was eclipsed by the excellence on the meats (shrimp appetizer, chicken appetizer, filet meal). The dessert some chocolate layered number with ice cream..delicious. Happy tummy sighs no doubt!

I had done my research online and I knew this restaurant was for us. I studied the menu before I left town and knew I had to have the house specialty, the horseradish crusted bacon wrapped filet. Sounds heavenly for a meat lover right? So...More

Very impressed by Wildfire. We had fantastic steaks there, particularly the Tenderloin Tip cut which was still delicious and tender when cooked medium. The seafood combination plate was also very tasty. Deserts were top quality too - so you may not want to eat much...More

The food here is good! The service is great! The Martini Flight, 4 tasters of their signature Martini's are wonderful. The black cherry one was my favourite. The bread is freshly baked and gorgeous. Prices range from £12-£35 for a main so suits all pockets....More

We have gone to Wildfire the last 3 times we have been privileged enough to vacation in Chicago. We haven't had a bad meal yet. My husband and sons love the charred bone-in ribeye and caramelized onions and mushrooms. That is what they order every...More

I would suggest spearmint, as the peppermint might be too strong.

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.
