We went here for a business dinner and the experience was terrific. The trio of filet medallions was especially good. They have a large selection of steaks but they also have many other dishes including top seafood. The restaurant can be a bit noisy and the menu isn't cheap but overall it is an enjoyable place for a business meal.

We are long time customers of Wildfire in Glenview, IL I don't really know what happened to the food today - it was for sure the worst I've ever had there. Appetizers were OK(spinach fondue was good, calamary OK , just too greasy) Main entries 2 out 3 were horrible I had seafood pasta - salty to the point that... More

A sleek, sophisticated room with a vaguely Art Deco ambience, dim lighting, and jazz background music (the main dining room is the Ellington Room). Separate "Martini Bar" room. Despite the very adult atmosphere, there were a surprising number of family groups during our Friday-evening visit. Our party of seven was seated at a table which proved to be a bit... More

You can always count on a good meal at Wildfire. I have been at Wildfire probably two dozen times and have never had a bad meal. I have tried multiple dishes steak, seafood, sides appetizers. Wildfire never disappoints.

My wife and I went here a few years back to celebrate valentines day like most couples. We were saw in the back of the bar area and assigned a waitress who clearly didn't like the fact that we are a same-sex couple. I refused to go back for a while. Fast forward a few years and we had our... More

This restaurant has a good reputation and has been decent in the past. However, my most recent visit was very bad. My sister's steak was tough and stringy, my ribs were average at best, the cornbread (which the waitress had told us she was heating up) was cold and tasteless. The shrimp and crab bisque was good but not worth... More

Great steaks and martinis. Call in advance for reservations as they're always busy. The waitstaff are attentive and well trained

As always a consistantly classic fine dining experience. I suggest the beef wellington which is a Saturday night special. Everything on the menu is cooked and served to perfection. The special treatment provided to our guest of honor for her birthday was especially appreciated by our group. Wildfire is a must for Chicago suburban dining.

This restaurant has great food. All of it! I challenge you to find a poor dish. Some of the finest steaks, Prime rib at less than steakhouse prices. Excellent seafood and sides. Generous pours on drinks. A bit noisy but not over the top. Pleasant surroundings with great service. Great food at a great value. One of my favorite places... 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.
