Swift yet Special

Dined 5 days ago

Wildfire is great for consistently up scale food, and they did not disappoint at my last visit. I was celebrating a work colleague's last day in the office before moving on for a great opportunity. I wanted something special, great food and something that would not be 3 hours long. Our waitress was attentive and thorough without being overbearing, and the food was excellent as usual. Thank you Wildfire.

Delicious food and lots of menu choices. Wine list is abundant. Service and ambiance is outstanding every time. It's crowded for a reason! We had a romantic dinner celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.

Dined on April 23, 2016

My daughter and I was in Lincolnshire for a basketball tournament and selected this restaurant because of the comments on OpenTable. The ambience is awesome! Open kitchen, rotisserie chicken is over an open fire. The servers did an awesome job. Very professional, thoughtful and answered all questions. The quality of the food met or exceeded all expectations. The side salad had at least six or seven different vegetables on it, the cornbread was outstanding and our dinners were superb. Certainly a great place for lunch or dinner.

Chopped Salad is always great

Dined on April 22, 2016

The waiter was very accommodating in splitting the salad and placing the blue cheese to the side. He checked on us occasionally. We did not feel rushed even though we were there during the prime lunch hour.

I love their Wildorf salad. It's unique and delicious. I just wish they had more healthier items on their menu like fish without the different crusts that they put on it. Give me good old grilled fish!

As usual, Wildfire - Lincolnshire exceeded our expectations. We arrived a few minutes early, were quickly seated and served. The food was hot, tasty and presented well. We finished the meal by sharing the unbelievable triple-layer chocolate cake!

Not what it used to be

vip
Dined on April 16, 2016

I have eaten here many times. The food has been consistent and that is what brings me back. But the two most recent visits to Wildfire have left me not wanting to come back. The food was just fair, not its usual quality. My filet was tasteless without much seasoning or flavor at all. My broccoli was swimming in a plate of water. My husband ordered prime rib medium rare. It was difficult to cut and sub-par. Our friends also ordered the prime rib, but cooked medium. I heard them say to each other theirs was a little chewy!

DISAPPOINTED THIS TIME

vip
Dined on April 10, 2016

I love Wildfire. I have been a regular for years. This time it missed the grade. Several different items were served cold, one was all mish moshed and had to be remade. the manager was very nice and very apologetic. He comped desserts which was unnecessary. They need to figure out what was going on Sunday evening.

Somewhat disappointed in this visit. Meals were only mediocre, tables are so close together that the chair next to us was practically in our lap. I think Wildfire is resting on their name recognition. I feel they need to step up their game.

We had a wonderful evening at Wildfire. We took friends who had never been here before for some amazing steak and we were not disappointed, prices are a bit steep but you get what you pay for. Our server was excellent and very attententive to our needs. We also enjoyed the warm apple crumble pie for dessert which was phenomenal! I would highly recommend this for a night out with friends or a date night!
