We decided to kind of "wing it" and stumbled onto Wildfire. The restaurant was busy, so we asked if we could sit in the bar area. The gentleman at reception was very kind. We got a great table where we could see the bar and...More

The food was good-my filet minion was very good. The service was efficient and attentive. It is pricey but it may be on par with Chicago prices.

If you've ever been diagnosed with gluten intolerance or celiac's late in life, you know how hard it can be to enjoy dining out ever again. Not here! Most restaurants have a designation for a few items that are safe, or a super short list...More

Our table ordered filets, scallops, turkey, and fish for our entrees. All were exceptional. I ordered the macadamia encrusted halibut special with rice as the side. It was wonderful, crispy and lightly sauced. The portions were generous. The apple pie dessert was awesome. It was...More

We look forward to when they get their Alaska Halibut. It is Macadamia crushed with a lemon butter sauce served with asparagus and one side. The chopped salad is a great start. Try their Martini or beer flights for samples of great drinks.

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.
