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

If you like steak then this is the place to go in Chicago. Perfect service if a little pricey but it's worth every cent.

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

A very cool old school Chicago steak house. The menu is the typical steak house fare. Wonderful meats, potatoes, mushrooms, creamed spinach etc. fast, friendly and efficient service. Food was good. I ordered my petite filet very rare. It did not come that way. It...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.

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.
