We had the crab cakes, French onion soup, rib eye steak sandwich and coconut shrimp. I'm told the crab cakes were excellent but the... More

I made reservations through OpenTable and added a couple of requests. They exceeded my expectations. I mentioned we were celebrating my husband's birthday; they surprised him with a Lava Cake. Beautiful atmosphere. Great service tableside. Fast bar service, great food. Highly recommend.

Drinks were generous. Calamari was A+++. Chops and Salmon were excellent. Good value for downtown. A must eat stop.

This was a great choice after a long flight to Chicago, meeting two friends who were equally tired. None of us wanted a giant meal, but the concierge at our hotel recommended Wildfire. "I took my Mom there and she loved it," the young concierge said, reminding me that I probably looked like an elderly parent myself. The atmosphere at... More

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!!

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

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.
