I like this restaurant a lot as they have a variety of entrees (from beef, game, chicken, and salads) in a casual atmosphere. My biggest complaint is with their bison, my favorite dish on the menu, as it is cooked inconsistently. I always order medium...More

We stopped in for a drink and appetizer (we were going out later for a fancy dinner), but we have eaten here several times. I would recommend this restaurant and we come back when time permits. It's a good upper average steak house, not crazy...More

Brought my family for a wonderful steak dinner and was not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food as good as I remembered - prime rib queen cut perfectly medium rare, beef tips seasoned wonderfully. During the meal, customers behind us decided to pick...More

We love eating here. The food is always very good. The coconut shrimp is delicious. The black bean burger is very good. They have great desserts.

There was a great buzz to this place as soon as we walked in, even with it being a Tuesday evening! The service was very efficient and friendly. We shared a starter and dessert, which was perfect as the portions are large! I had the...More

Friends had selected this restaurant, and we went because we wanted to spend time with them, not because we were interested in going to a steakhouse. Much to our delight, Wildfire was much, much better than we’d expected. One of our friends has some severe...More

I travel a lot and I go to Chicago quite often. I've dined many places, but this remains one of my favorites. They have a superb menu selection and wine list. I have Celiac disease, and this restaurant has a fantastic amount of gluten free...More

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.

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.
