While the waiter was terrific and cocktails delish, the cod special was just okay. Didn't knock your socks off and the side green beans were over cooked. The dessert was yummy, though. I'd go again, but not for special occasion.

Excellent food! Also great gluten free choices. I would recommend the gluten free goat cheese pizza. My husband and I left very delighted with the service and meal.

Another great LEYE (Lettuce Entertain You) Restaurant. It is a little off the the main area of Michigan Ave, but easy walk or short ride. Food was delicious, nice big salads. Their speciality is steak which we did not get but they looked great. Large...More

Food was very good and the quality was delicious for the price. Highly recommend if you don’t want to dig deep for the pricy steakhouses all over the city. Only got pics of the onion soup and calamari. Steak looked too good to wait.

I attended a dinner meeting on a Sunday evening. Surprisingly the place wasn’t crowded. The staff was attentive and the food was delicious. The small Cobb salad dinner plate was enormous! Enough to feed 2-3 people. You may want to consider sharing that meal. My...More

My son and I had a great experience at Wildfire. We were in Chicago for his birthday and our server immediately asked if we were celebrating anything. Nice touch....which resulted in a birthday brownie/ice cream treat. He really enjoyed the kids burger and i had...More

Wildfire was an excellent choice. The service was exceptional and I do mean exceptional. Right off the bat, they were extremely aware of one diner’s gluten allergy (mentioned in my reservation note). They handled GF issues better than ANY restaurant I’ve seen yet. Every person...More

Went here for a later dinner. Great steaks and amazing wine flights! Servers were very nice but took forever to get our main course and the restaurant was half full.

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.
