I wanted a special place for dinner on July 4th and discovered that many good restaurants are closed that day. So I kept my expectations low for Wildfire, grateful just to have found someplace nice for dinner. Boy, was I happy with this whole dining...More

Excellent food, atmosphere, and food. When we first pulled up, I was a bit skeptical because it is nothing fancy from the outside. Once inside it is very nice. I had there signature horseradish steak and it was delicious. Would recommend this restaurant.

This was a 30 person meeting with dinner in a private room, so most of the choices had already been made, only 3 choices for main entree, typical. Appetizers were excellant and the entree was good. I would probably go back if I were staying...More

We went out for an evening and ended up back on the street in under 1 hour. I can't say that the service was poor, the waiter was good except that we said we were not in a hurry and just wanted a relaxing dinner....More

We had a group of 12 for a special event. The staff was attentive and the food at Wildfire is always great. Try the bison fillet.

I'll be talking about how good my steak at wildfire was for the rest of my life. Lovely ambience, brilliant service. Good value for amazing quality food (and I think wine was half price on a Monday). Can't rate this place enough

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

Prices are listed which is helpful. You will probably spend $100 per couple or so, but this is 25% less than comparable restaurants in Chicago with decent quantities and excellent quality. They also typically include a side... More

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.
