excellent food, utmost concern about Celiac allergy. your food even comes with a stick labeled "allergy"
They are good about handling food appropriately (they always ask if my gf is a preference or an allergy) and I appreciate that but outside of the excellent beet salad, my food here the last two times I went has been just so-so. If I'm paying a boatload for a steak it really needs to be prepared correctly and the staff needs to be more attentive after the food is served.
Designated GF menu. Staff very accommodating.
Excellent food, designated GF menu, good service. Food arrived with wooden sticks labeled "Allergy."
Our waitress Amy V was amazing! She happily met our dietary needs without making us feel high maintenance or abnormal. I had almost sworn off of Wildfire after a horrible experience in Schaumburg, but Lincolnshire has put Wildfire back on my radar! I have major Celiac issues and I had no reactions. :)
Top-notch! Hard to beat!!!
We came here for a GF brunch with the University of Chicago's Celiac Center. Delicious! I hope they incorporate some of the dishes on their regular brunch menu. Wild Fire does a great job with gluten free.
Absolutely some of the best service I've ever had. Derek L was fun, quick with food and refills. Let's talk about the food: amazing gluten free BBQ ribs and mashed potatoes. Derek wouldn't let us leave until he gave us the gluten free molten brownie- couldn't tell it was gf and it was great! The extensive gf menu is sure to please anyone's taste. One of the best restaurants and overall dining experiences I've had in the past 2-3 years!
Best gluten free menu ever!!! It is seriously impressive. Black bean burger was pretty good. Bread not that great but at least they have it! Pizza, pasta, sandwiches are all an option!
I do like Wildfire for a lingering night out with friends and family. Lots of options to select from and the servers always seem knowledgable. Just allow a few hours from start to finish but well worth the time for such delicious food!
Delicious! So many options that can be made GF! Highly recommend making reservations well in advance as we waited in the crowded bar for an hour and a half for a table.
The bread you get to start is yummy! I'm guessing that its the bun they use for hamburgers. They have a wide variety of gf options that hit he spot.
They give you gf bread just like everyone else. The apple martini is my favorite here. The pizza and salads are great.
Has GF pitas for sandwiches.
They have a dedicated gluten free menu with many options! Our waiter brought us gluten free rolls which were delicious! They are really good about not cross contaminating. I ordered gluten free pizza and it was really delicious! I also had their flourless chocolate cake which was gluten free of course. Really good food and really understanding about my condition.
Hi my name is makenna I have celiac, This place was the best. They had a whole separated menu for gluten free and very nice and understanding waiters. I recommend the flour-less chocolate cake. Also they wipe their counters more than once and they even have gluten free bread when you first sit down. I had a cheese burger and it was the best one I ever had even without celiac. I would highly suggest wildfire.
Jesse the bartender and staff were great. food was excellent. they make their own in house bread, buns, and pizza crusts. I got the. bison burger. it was good. the only problem is that the bun disintegrated. I made a suggestion that you have to toast the heck out of the buns, especially if you are using moist ingredients or a juicy burger. enjoy
I attended a family dinner in a private room with a set menu last evening at Wildfire. I called the restaurant the day before to speak to Nicole, the event manager, about my dietary restrictions. She assured me that they could adapt almost everything on the set menu to be gluten free and safe for me to eat. I was asked to inform a server when I arrived that I had celiac. The staff was amazing and very attentive in letting me know which foods were gluten free and making sure I had a safe option for every course. I can honestly say it is the best gluten free food I’ve eaten. Several family members who do not have my dietary restrictions tried some of my GF options and thought they were delicious too. For an appetizer I had a goat cheese & mushroom mini pizza which was fabulous. My Vegetarian son loved & ate more of that than I did. I had two GF salads: a chopped kale salad and a chopped mixed salad with chicken - both salads were flavorful & outstanding. Main entree choices were chicken and salmon. I ate the chicken and it was amazing and so tender. For dessert there were two GF choices: a flourless warm fudge brownie that was heavenly and vanilla ice cream with fresh berries and GF granola that was delicious and visually appealing. I really cannot extend enough praise about how wonderful the food and service was at Wildfire. So refreshing to go to a restaurant and not have to worry if my food is safe for me to eat or feel like your restrictions are an inconvenience.
Incredibly knowledgeable staff, huge gluten free menu and delicious food. The GF chopped salad, macadamia nut crusted halibut and flourless chocolate cake were all delicious! And I did not get sick from cross-contamination. Great restaurant for celiacs!!!
The best GF experience I've had anywhere. They didn't just have GF offerings, they had a complete 2 page menu of items like any other diner would receive. Even the blue cheese dressing and Bernaise sauces were safe. The croutons in the salads were fantastic and the French onion soup is as delicious as a non-GF version. I've also never had more attentive service.
This is a swanky place. We are visiting my finace's friends after just getting engaged. We had reservations, and they knew someone was coming in who had issues with any cross-contamination. They assure us, and we make the reservation based largely on Find Me GF reviews. We got to our table, and they had a GF menu out for me. Cool. I ask the waiter for details on dedicated equipment. He doesn't know anything about the kitchen or gluten. He goes back and finds out that they have a ton of shared equipment that they 'clean really well.'. YIKES!!!!!!! A total of three people came by my table, and I got to say NO THANKS repeatedly to each person. They never said what their job is at Wildfire. This is all happening in front of my finace's friends with conflicting info from the staff each time, which is damn embarrassing and terrifying. My fiance is wondering if his life will always be like this from now on. I'm just having water. Glad I ate before I left the house because it smells good.
This place was amazing! We came here for Valentine's day (with a reservation) and the server was incredibly attentive to my gluten free needs. All of my food came out with a little allergen label on it. The gluten free menu was huge, and had so many options! The chocolate lava cake was perfect for two people. PS, they participated in winter restaurant week, I'm hoping they do so again! I will definitely be coming back.
I ate at Wildfire in McLean, VA for the first time last night. Great food, great service. They have a completely separate area for cooking their gluten-free items to prevent cross-contact. Extensive GF menu with a variety of choices. I opted for the Seafood Newburg Pasta and a side of balsamic roasted vegetables. The portions were generous with enough leftover to have for lunch today. They have excellent GF bread that they bake in-house from scratch. It was so nice to have a yummy, "normal" dining experience!
Extensive Gluten-Free menu with many choices. Fantastic GF pizza. Homemade GF bread. The GF Baked French Onion Soup is outstanding. Gluten-Free menu includes appetizers, pizza, salads, pasta, steaks and chops, seafood, chicken, burgers and sandwiches, and deserts. I have dined here multiple times; the servers are all well trained and attentive to your dietary restrictions. Your food is marked with a toothpick type label to avoid kitchen and server confusion. I never worry when dining here and always enjoy the food. Jan 2017 update. Visited again and had the Parmesan Crusted Alaskan Cod. Fish was perfectly prepared and rivaled any fish entree anywhere.
Everything was delicious and we had no concerns about cross contact. We enjoyed steaks and the macadamia nut crusted halibut, Au Gratin potatoes and other sides - all very tasty! The GF bread served before the meal was good too. The server was very well informed and we felt safe eating there.
Rather disappointed after reading great reviews. Ordered food to go. The onion soup had a big label on top saying "GF No crouton." I opened the lid and there was a huge crouton inside so soaked in soup that it fell apart into tiny pieces when I tried to remove it. I ordered the pizza and requested goat cheese on top. The pizza cake with no goat cheese and when I pointed that out, the carry out guy took the pizza away and sprinkled goat cheese on top and brought it right back, without cooking or even reheating it to melt the cheese. I ordered a filet medium well and it was rare.
First time here and it was fantastic. They have gluten free bread, which is very close to the real deal (rice based). I applaud the chef for a great job on the menu as the selection is huge, and great tasting. It's is pricey but this is fresh and that's what matters.
I had a great experience here while here on business! My waitress was very knowledgeable and I also spoke with the manager Jill who both assured me I wouldn't have a problem. They were knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination. They brought gluten free bread to the table and the French onion soup was made with the same bread, delicious!the steak was cooked to perfection as well. One of the biggest gluten free menus I've ever seen. So glad I came here!
Our server Kelly was super knowledgeable about the gluten free menu. She even offered a gluten free roll along with the other bread for my boyfriend. Biggest GF menu I've seen in a while, my only gripe is the Mac and cheese, the noodles were rubbery and tasted weird. Everything else was great!
I had French onion soup.... And it was awesome!!! Wonderful to walk in a restaurant and ask about gluten-free, and not get "the look". Instead, I got a menu with lots of delicious choices, and a dessert I had to fight my gluten loving family for. :)
One of my favorites before going GF and still love it. They have a large selection on their gluten free menu, from more casual meals like pizza, pasta and burgers, to fancier dishes like beef wellington and seafood. Desserts and dinner rolls were great. They were very knowledgeable and careful about CC. All of my meals were labeled with a large toothpick-like stick with the word "allergy" on it (I'm assuming they use the same labels for all special diets). I can't wait to go back.
We went Saturday night and had a great experience! Our server Steve T took the time to talk to me about the gluten free menu (that was very large!). Their bread was delicious, the spinach dip was amazing, the pizza was some I of the best I've had and the flour less cake was unbelievable! I'll go back for sure!
Extensive GF menu-- very knowledgeable staff and excellent service. GF bread available-- and both GF pasta and rolls, too. Food is excellent-- and a great atmosphere. Kids eat free on Sunday (and they have GF options for kids, too!) One of our favorites!
