We stayed at Godfrey Hotel and decided to try this place out since we could see it from window and reviews were good. It kind of reminds me of Maggiano's. Great old bar, cavernous room, and atmosphere. Here's a view pros and cons from my...More

Wildfire Chicago is a great restaurant/steakhouse, and is consistent in quality and value! It is always a great place for me and the “guys” to get together, have a few cocktails, and enjoy good food and conversation! They do have booths around the dining area...More

We learned about this restaurant from friends, and we really appreciated the recommendation. I ordered the halibut special and my guy had a beautiful seafood platter. We both had small salads, as well which were fresh and tasty. We then shared a piece of strawberry...More

The food was mediocre, the service marginal, it was cold and noisy. Some may like it but they can have it, we won't return, there's so many other much better places in Chicago.

We went for Apps after we played some Escape Room across the street. Great place for some apps and some beers. Just skip the attraction across the street.

We live for the Macadamia Encrusted Halibut when it comes in. The service is excellent here and the food is served quickly and hot. They have the best baked sweet potatoes and great deserts to finish off the meal.

I really enjoyed Wildfire... the menu has great options, it was lively without being overbearingly loud, and the prices were a lot more reasonable than many other steakhouses in the area. The host who "greeted" us must not enjoy his job because he was far...More

I would suggest spearmint, as the peppermint might be too strong.

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.
