Wildfire, although a chain, is fashioned after a speakeasy and is a fun spot for dinner. Black and white photo's of days gone by adorn the walls. The menu, focused on steaks and seafood, offers additional options for everyone's taste - even a handmade black bean burgers, for example. Enjoy!!

It started off well and then our starters/appetisers arrived. My crab cakes were great however my husband order a chicken Caesar to start......this is where everything took... More

One of the best places to eat, our waiter was fabulous and the device was impeccable. A definite must if you are in the mood for a good steak/prime rib.

Visited with a friend for lunch today, the venue is beautiful, and the menu options are plentiful! I had the tomato and mozzarella stuffed burger, and my friend is gluten free and there was a whole menu available for her to choose from. She also had a GF burger. The food was delicious, and service was great. For dessert I... More

Several went for a business dinner. Several had been before and recommended the steak. It was ok, nothing special. Okay dinner in a city of opportunity.

Wildfire in Chicago has been one of my favorite restaurants for over 15 years. We go they at least 6-8 times a year even though we live out of State. We had dinner there on Sunday night and found that while the food was great, they are having some problems getting the steak temperature right. Last night one of our... More

We chose this place as the menu had something for everyone plus it had been booked 50+ times that day. We arrived after having booked a table and we were seated in the smallest booth possible. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived so we hoped all would be good. The waiter went through the menu - we couldn't... More

I had not been to this restaurant in a long time and wanted to go back. There are so many good restaurants in Chicago, we like to try ones that we have not been to. It is part of the Lettuce entertain you chain of restaurants. Anyways, I went there this weekend with my wife and daughter and son-in-law and... More

It has been some time since I ate here, but the food was so good, next time I am in town I will make it the first dinner stop. It is an ala carte type establishment, in that each item ordered, from starters, to soups, sides, and of course your entree and any beverages are separately charged. But the star... 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.
