Step back in time 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 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Our server was just fair we had to keep asking him for things over and over again! Like for a lemon or ice or a lime ...

We love wildfire. Had the worst experience at this location. Oakbrook is way better! The waitress did not write down our order, then came back about 10 minutes later and was like “what did you order” then the wrong food came out. She didn’t even know and we were starving so we just ate it and didn’t say anything. I felt like the least she could have done for the hassle was comp the kids sundaes.

Our group of three each had something completely different from the others and all the food was very good. Two ordered off the brunch menu with the other ordering off the regular menu.

We were celebrating two special occasions and the complimentary desserts just made us feel extra special.

The best part of the experience as our server Lauren. She is probably the best server we have encountered in our visits to many different kinds of restaurants. She was knowledgeable about the menu, gave us great advice on what to order, she was friendly, joked with us, made us feel welcome and provided the highest quality of service. We will definitely ask to be at her table the next time we visit Wildfire in Lincolnshire!.

Wildfire never disappoints!! The food, drinks and service are always excellent. (But still miss the loaves of bread on the cutting board-especially the dark bread.)

Wonderful evening as always. Service was great. Drink glasses full. Additional bread. Appetizers & soup perfect start. Variety of choices for everyone as all 5 of us selected something different. Chicken & ribs, filet, different chicken entrees and chicken wildorf salad very tasty.

Food was good, but does not justify the increase in prices we noticed. Scallops were small and a bit sandy. Filet was not that flavorful. Basic steak and seafood menu. Most compelling dishes were the salads.

Used to be a lot better. The food is ok but once you factor in the price, it's not. Not worth the price or the time.

The service is underwhelming. Similar to the food, the service is ok until you consider the price of everything.

The bottom line is if you need a fine steak restaurant, there are better places to go.

Wildfire is a victim of their own success. They get so busy that they've lost the essence of what made them popular in the first place.

We had an 11:15am reservation for a business meeting, but weren’t seated until 11:25. The restaurant was just opening so kind of annoying to have to wait for staff to fin

Birthday celebration for my husband. Realize it is a steakhouse but there was NO vegan options. Also wish they had baked potatoes at lunch. Service was very good.

We had two NY strips. One was juicy and very good. One was dry and not as tasty, even tho it was still pink in the center. It seemed like it had been sitting a while in the kitchen?? I did not finish it.

It was a busy evening. The bus boys can still be a bit more quiet. There was quite a bit of noise - slamming dishes and trays etc. Just coach them to minimize the dish noise.

Salad was great. Potatoes great. Carrot cake great. Broccoli- the plate had water which seemed to be coming off the broccoli. As it sat it became more watery.

Serve the food hot. Steaks should still be sizzling a bit. Etc

I was served raw fish twice and the manager tried to tell me it was cooked to medium. That was not medium. That was sushi.

The food was delicious as always. Beef Wellington, Pork Chops and filet cooked perfectly. The only problem I had was with my order of scallops. 6 come with an order, 3 per skewer. 1 skewer had 3 nice sized scallops and the other skewer had 3 the size slightly larger than a quarter.

We went the day after Valentine's Day and it was so loud you could hardly hear the person sitting next to you. The service was very, very slow so when the waiter came to the table a second time, we all order two drinks because we didn't know how long it would be until we saw him again. Besides that, it was okay. I do not live near Lincolnshire and for me to have to drive all the way back there for the food is just not worth it to me. There are plenty of other places I can go to that have better food and service and are much closer to me.

It was on Valentine’s day. It is so crowded..
I ordered a porter house and my husband had a scallop plate.
We enjoyed the dinner especially porter house was cooked perfect but most foods are a bit salty.
I don’t like the bread they serve. I would recommend to have steak there.
