Good value for the money with a nice atmosphere. I started with the asparagus salad. The asparagus was nicely cooked with a nice mustard vinegar dressing. Chopped eggs were piled on top. Those could have been left off in my opinion. I had the swordfish....More

We ate at Wildfire as part of a rehearsal dinner/private party. The food and service were top notch. They were very attentive to our guests, and accommodating to our late comers.

Prices are listed which is helpful. You will probably spend $100 per couple or so, but this is 25% less than comparable restaurants in Chicago with decent quantities and excellent quality. They also typically include a side... More

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.
