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.

We usually reserve our visits to Wildfire for special occasions. The food is excellent and the service usually is, too. However, they are always busy and sometimes the service and atmosphere suffers.

“Great Prime Rib !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Always a pleasant experience at this location. Always prompt and efficient servers. And food is hot and fresh !!!. Not as congested as city location , or Oakbrook Location. Also there is the Glen shopping mall right there with a theatre , so you can eat , shop and catch a movie at same time. ample parking at parking garage which is free to park at.

“Always a great experience here..Never a disappointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I've sat at the bar - I sat in the bar area and I've had tables in the dining rooms. Service in all locations is exactly the same - top notch, attentive, entertaining (especially if you're lucky enough to have Linda) and just plain excellent. I've never had a meal here that wasn't expertly prepared. Love the Cedar Planked Salmon. The ribs are delicious. The steaks are fabulous and I most often order the trio medallions with Parmigian, Horseradish and Bleu Cheese crusts along with mashed potatoes. The salads are fabulous and we usually order a salad that is unfortunately not on the menu any more - but they always make it for us if we request it. The staff is all attentive. If you don't see your server, grab the nearest one or ask one of the bus staff. They all are there to make your experience perfect. Word of advice - make a reservation - and they are on Open Table as well. We've never had to wait for a table and it's always crowded every night.

“Outstandng food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

I dined at Wildfire on a Saturday night and the place was packed. To me that is a great sign of the quality of the place. The calamari was fantastic and I had a filet on the bone that was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was nice and the service was top notch. I highly recommend this place for a great dinner!

Food and service are always top notch. The Baby Back Ribs are a great choice. You also can't miss with any of the steak or seafood entres. The bar is always lively. If you don't have reservations during the week, be prepared to wait. Reservations on Friday and Saturday are a must.
