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.

I celebrated my birthday at Wildfire in late April with my wife and adult son. The restaurant was very crowded as it was a Saturday night, but we were seated right at our 6:45 reservation time. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and had a great experience. Our server, Juana, was really exceptional. She was very personable and seemed really invested in our having a good experience. She was knowledgable and able to answer all of our questions regarding the menu items and made excellent recommendations. The menu is vast and there are a great many dishes to choose from. Seems like you can't go wrong. We loved it and the free desert we enjoyed as part of our celebration was a sweet ending to a great evening.

Make your reservations in advance if you want a table, as this popular Glenview restaurant is the real deal. We have dined there on several occasions, both in the dining room and the lounge. The lounge gets very boisterous and loud, but the crowd is friendly and the bartenders eager to please. The restaurant is calmer, with very good service. The menu is above average and the our food has always been prepared very well. If you like a good steak, fresh seafood or just a good meal, this is your place.

I was given a gift certificate from a realtor we recommended to friends and invited friends to lunch at my favorite spot in town Wildfire. I ordered my favorite, two tenderloin filets (they offer several topping choices) topped with Parmesan. I enjoyed every bite. Their food never disappoints

This is north suburban location Wildfire restaurant, which a pert of Lettuce Entertain You Group. The Group originally started and is still "hands on" managed by Rich Millman, one of the top restauranteurs.

It is solid meat oriented restaurant also serving other food selections. Lettuce Entertain You prides itself on well designed, comfortable restaurants, well prepared top grade ingredients meals and excellent service. By no means this is a "chain" restaurant, although the Group owns a large number of different establishments.

The steaks, ribs and especially Angus hamburgers are very good and delivered as ordered.
The fish dishes are well selected and very good. Various salads range from excellent to good.
Very good breads. The food is attractively presented. Knowledgable, prompt and friendly service makes one feel welcome.

High end crafted beverages and well selected reasonably priced wine list.

Modern, comfortable eating areas, which at times may get a bit noisy.

More than adequate free parking.

I have not previously dined at any of the Wildfire locations. I was meeting a friend who lives locally and he suggested it. The good news is that the restaurant does not feel like a chain but rather, like a local joint with a nice vibe.

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The room was almost full although it was a Wednesday night.

The bread to start was excellent. We shared a Cesar salad which was good (but not excellent). We both ordered the mahi mahi which was very good (but not excellent).

The service was in fact excellent and as I noted previously, they were busy.

We did not order dessert although the cherry pie looked outstanding.

Prices seemed reasonable at $20 to $25 per entree which includes one side.

You may not think this is the best meal you ever had but I think you'll enjoy your meal here and think it was worth the price.
