My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate him passing an exam. We had a reservation for 830 on a Thursday but decided to show up early and see what happened. We were able to be seated right away. Our waiter was super knowledgable of the menu and very attentive. He was able to explain all the different menu items... More

The food was exemplary, the service was very good and the atmosphere was very nice as well. We were waited on very quickly and once seated drinks were delivered quickly. The staff were very attentive to our needs and kept our water glasses full. When the food was delivered, it was hot and so very yummy!! I had the cedar... More

Always very busy so they are doing something right. Excellent menu history and decent wine list, this famous for steak eatery is a bit crowded on table space but it works Enjoyed splitting a spinach salad with the table. Service is consistently good with server assistants always watching the table and refilling glasses. Last two visits the steaks were cooked... More

Sent back the steak twice. First time was because it was the wrong order. Then they gave me a well done steak when I ordered medium rare. The kitchen gets it wrong more often than they get it right. Seems to lack quality control Last three visits have been very disappointing. Won't be back.

We always enjoy our meal at Wildfire, one of Lettuce Entertain You's fine restaurants. The macadamian crusted halibut is amazing, and the steaks and pork chops were enjoyed by our table as well. Save room for dessert, as the choices are amazing and delicious. We opted for a few desserts to share, and they were plenty big and decadent.

Any place that gets me to order salad MUST be good. Not a salad fan but I am at Wildfire! And the steaks! You can order your steak (or steaks--small filets) with peppercorns or bernaise sauce or blue cheese or other toppings. If that's too pricey for you, have a sandwich. Their steak sammy is delish. Wonderful seafood. Not a... More

Buttermilk coated chicken served as a sandwich with sauce, lettuce, etc. Best ever. Husband had his usual steak which was perfect as always with side of creamed spinach (another favorite). Topped off with 3 berry pie. What's not to like?!

I enjoy this restaurant because of the wide variety of food available. I think the shrimp cocktail is one of the best I have had as it tasted as if it was "right out of the ocean". In addition to the very good food, there are "flights" in which you may sample drinks such as the white and red wine,... 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.
