Went for a quick dinner on a Thursday night. Not very crowded, so we sat in the bar area. Ordered a cheeseburger, also a filet medallion trio. All delicious and cooked to perfection. Great French fries, great mushrooms as a side. Drinks a little pricey. Nice atmosphere, great service by Steven.

The aroma in the parking lot is definitely inviting. We landed on a Saturday night and the place was hopping and had a good vibe. But the restaurant lacked any unique decor and had the feel of a "chain". We were seated quickly and staff was helpful and attentive but not intrusive. Interesting menu and standard steakhouse choices and good... More

The wine flight was interesting and helped us choose wines. My partners steak was perfect, the calamari appetizer was good. The service nice and my scallops were perfect.

When we start missing really good ribs or steaks, or just good quality of food and service we head to our Wildfire in Glenview. We've been there many times and never been disappointed! It has some special atmosphere that is difficult to describe. Just come and try, you'll decide if it's your place or not.

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 !

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.
