Description: Step back in time 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 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

“Great steak”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

A great place for grilled steaks and Chicken. Atmosphere is from the 1920-30's with old photo's on the walls and music in background from that time as well. Can get noisy. Make reservations especially on the weekends or you can wait 30+ minutes. May wait 5 to 10 even with one. Big portions. Medium priced and can go up depending on what you get and the drink tab. If you have a table of 6 or more you may not hear the people at the other end with the sound around you. Best with a table of 6 or less.

“Wonderful Steaks and Chicken”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Have been to a number of Wild Fire locations in the Chicago area. They are all very good. If you like grilled steak or Chicken this is the place for you. Atmosphere is from the 1920-30's. Old photo's on the walls from that time and music to match. Make reservations or you will be waiting for 30+ minutes. May still need to wait 5 to 10 minutes with one. The place can get crowed and noisy, so if you have a table of 6 or more you may not hear the people at the other end. Go with 4 or less. Large portions. You won't have room for dessert.

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Wildfire (Lincolnshire) has been a favorite for many years. The prime rib and halibut (in season) are always excellent. The steaks and other fish choices are also terrific. The great deserts are available in half portions (you need to ask) which make sharing easier. Be sure to make reservations, but on some nights and weekends you may wait 15 minutes past your reserved time to be seated. We have been to three of the other Wildfire locations in the Chicago area and they are also very good. Wildfire is part of the Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises restaurant group and they offer a Frequent Diners program. Sign up and get a $5 dining credit (for future vists) for every $70 spent.

“Very tasty bison but the service was lacking.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The restaurant was very noisy and the table we were seated at was in a bad spot. Every person that walked past us bumped into me, including the wait staff. We had reservations and were seated immediately. There was a 1.5 hour wait without a reservation and this was at 6pm on a Wednesday night.
The coffee rubbed bison was excellent.
