I really don't understand what all the excitement is about regarding lettuce entertain you restaurants. I get the feeling that a lot of the glowing reviews are written by LEY employees.
The Wildfire atmosphere is uncomfortable. The music is very loud, making it near impossible to converse with others. I really like jazz, but they went out of their way to pick some of the worst big band tunes ever produced. The tables are packed in really close to each other, making it very difficult to sit down and get up without disturbing the other diners around you.
As for the food, I was disappointed. Their 'crusts' are used to cover up their insipid, chemically tenderized, low quality beef. A great steak doesn't need a crust!
Overall, I felt like I was in an upscale Applebee's. If you have truly discernible tastes, pay a few dollars more and go to a real steakhouse. If you ate McDonald's for lunch, then this place is right up your alley. And if someone is dragging you here, be sure to get drunk before hand!

Pros: can't think of any

Cons: Loud, pretentious, over priced, and definitely overrated

Wildfire is a great restaurant. They have a great chopped salad! The wine list is extensive. The steaks are very good and the specials are always good.

I loved going here when I lived in Lake Country, and my parents still live there and we frequently go back when I visit. It has great steaks, but actually may favorite thing is there chopped salad, and I'm not really a salad guy. Prices are reasonable for what you get.

August 22, 2007, 6 pm, was the worst experience. After 1 hour of waiting we have to wait 1:30 more. The opposite was told in the beginning. The hostess and manager, tried to make all kind excuses for their mess-ups. We left.

Wildfire always makes the shortlist of dinner places in the suburbs. It is an extremely busy place, but with a reservation (good luck getting one for a Saturday night, btw) I've generally been seated promptly. Parking is a mess. Using the inexpensive valet service is a good idea. And, as another reviewer notes, it is generally a loud place. Tables are relatively close to each other. I like getting a booth.

Despite that mixed preface, I highly recommend this place. The food makes up for a wait, if you have one. The filet medallion trio is always on the list of specials. I love their horseradish crust. I liked their NY strip and shrimp combo, but they don't offer that special any longer unfortunately.

I like their sides as well, especially the wild rice. They have a good selection of wines as well. Overall, it's consistently a very good dining experience.

While getting into this place at night is a nightmare, sometimes worth the wait. They have very consistent, great food. From the filets with toppings (choose your favorite) to the chopped salad to the martini trio, this restaurant hits a home run. Lunch time is a great time to go, busy as well so dont arrive right at noon, but the mustard chicken sandwich on the pretzel roll hits the spot!

ENJOY

Pros: Great food, great selection, great private dining rooms

Cons: Loud, very busy all the time

Good quality food in a sinatra type atmosphere. Great wine list. Great steaks that are juicy and seasoned well. You must try the garbage salad, probably the best I have had anywhere. Prices can be expensive, a place I go only on special occasions.

We went to Wildfire for our office Christmas Party. I thought that because it was family style the food would be overcooked or tasteless. We cut the steak with butter knives, the chicken was juicy and tender. If you go do not pass on the fresh berry dessert.

Also their drinks are not watered down. Excellent!

PROS: Wonderful service and atmosphere
CONS: Long wait even with reservations

this is our all-time favorite restaurant and I am very picky. The service is awesome--very attentive without annoying. The food has always been great. The blue-cheese encrusted filet and chopped salad are must haves. The martini's are great too. The seafood is fresh and tasty. Make your reservations way in advance thought.

I am not much of a steak eater at all except when I go to Wildfire. Their Blue Cheese Crusted Filet is the best.

We were planning to go to our regular steak place, The Butcher Shop, but found that it was closed. We sort of stumbled upon Wildfire and what a great place it was - great steaks and a fun atmosphere.
