Wildfire is a good quality steak, chop and seafood restaurant. Quality of meats is very good, good crust choices and everything prepared very well. Not five stars because of somewhat slow service, prices a bit higher than I think they should be, but certainly a good choice for the quality of the food.

Wildfire has a great atmosphere for a nice lunch or dinner. We go at lunch and it is a bit more upscale in price but delicious food. I have to watch out with the hot bread they bring or I will be full before the meal even comes. They have great salads, burgers, steaks, seafood. The desserts are really really... More

This is definitely a high end steak house with a great wine selection and varied menu for just about any taste. The restaurant offers a lot of choices for crusts/toppings which was a bit unique. The service was exceptional as you would expect in a restaurant of this caliber. Great place for business dinners. Definitely come back again.

You can't go wrong choosing this restaurant for a luncheon, cocktail after work a quick bite or a celebration. The steaks are great the fish is fresh and don't pass up the beet salad. The sides are meant to share and I love the sweet potatoes. My kids like a filet with fries. Catch a game or a a feast.... More

People love this place. Good food. Too crowded. Too expensive. They need a few less tables in the main dining room. You will be smashed in the place on a weekend. Food took forever !

Good service. Foods are always good. Prices are higher, but you get what you pay for. Stand by items for me are salmon on cedar plank, French dip. Salads are good too, with big portion.

This is one of the myriad spin offs of the original Lettuce Entertainment Enterprises Wildfire in downtown Chicago that opened in the 1990s. The crowd tends to be older, with an air of wanna-be mob around the place. It's rated the top restaurant in Glenview now...but I don't understand all the hubub. It's a predictable, overpriced steakhouse menu in a... More

The food was good the service was decent. Bison meatballs were delicious. Steak was good but to me seemed to lack a little seasoning. I'd get it again but not great just good. Creamed spinach was good. Not entirely sure the scallops were 'scallops'. They may have been deep sea scallops or worse shark. They were all pretty uniform is... More

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.
