Ate lunch here. I had the mushroom-crusted pork chop with broccoli side, all very good, and my friends had bison burgers, which they enjoyed. Service was great, atmosphere comfortable, quiet. Prices a bit higher than we are used to, but not bad for Chicago. Would...More

Went here for a business dinner. Service was good. As for the food, the rolls were great (best part of my dinner). The salad was ok but completely uninspired. The only vegan option offered was a rather dull penne primavera with red sauce. With so...More

My expectations were high before eating here, which often means the experience will fall short, but expectations were met and exceeded. Our server, Sandy, was a consummate professional and helped with our selection process. My New York steak was done to perfection and my husband...More

Me and my boyfriend came here for my birthday dinner last Friday. I had the "Stormy Night" (can't remember if that's what it's called or not) Martini and it was the best cocktail I've ever had. I was so happy with my drink choice, considering...More

Quality restaurant with great atmosphere. Many unique items and daily specials. Prices are high but taste and service out weigh the cost.

We had a family dinner for 6. Kids menu worked great for pre-teens and the adults split between steak and seafood specials. The meal was well prepared and served. Nice job handling food allergies.

The service was good and so was the food. Over the years Wildfire has become a bit more expensive. At these prices, I would recommend Gibson's over them.

We had dinner on a Saturday night with a reservation made about two weeks in advance. Only one person had soup for an appetizer and that was very good. The prime rib was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The au gratin potatoes were also excellent. The...More

I would suggest spearmint, as the peppermint might be too strong.

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.
