Wildfire was suggested by a local for a typical Chicago steakhouse. The service and atmosphere were great. They have a huge gluten free menu with many choices. Very impressive. I wasn’t super hungry so I skipped the appetizers and salads. I got a small filet and a twice baked potato. They were good but nothing special. The steak had a flag that said “allergy” on it. It tasted like the steak had absolutely no seasoning. I guess they were being abundantly cautious, which I appreciate. But given the large gluten free menu, I would have expected them to know they could use basic seasoning - salt, pepper, garlic, butter - which would have gone a long way for some flavor. Glad we went, but my steak was better at our hotel restaurant. The gluten free flourless cake was amazing!!
This place is amazing. Completely separate gluten free menu and gives out gluten free bread! So many possible options and they take the allergy very seriously! We went back twice in one week because it was so tasty and you got a lot of food for your money too!!
They have gluten free bread, many options and incredible food at a reasonable price for the type of restaurant. Definitely recommend
Excellent food!! The wait staff is extremely knowledgeable! They even bring gf bread to the table before the meal! Everything that you order from the gf menu has an allergy flag on it so you know they took the time to make sure it was prepared gf. I ordered the parmesan encrusted cod! It was amazing!! The best fish I have ever ordered. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Delicious food with lots of options on their GF menu. Their GF flat bread was delicious! Didn’t get sick.
Best experience in Chicago thus far. Waiter had excellent knowledge and brought out gluten free bread without being asked. Enjoyed a filet followed by an incredible gf molten lava cake. Can’t wait to go back
Excellent!!! I have gluten and dairy allergies and the waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I had beef medallions and balsamic veggies. So good!
I’ve been here twice and the first time was amazing!!! The second time was still good, just not as good service. (Depends on the server) Great gluten free options and they even bring out gf bread!! Very awesome!!
Very knowledgable staff. Large potions. Come hungry. Delicious gf biscuits and croutons for salad. Amazing flourless chocolate cake.
The food was great, the wait staff is well trained, and we felt totally safe taking our daughter there.
Many gf options, steak, chicken, fish. Staff was knowledgeable, food delicious. Cheeseburger on a homemade gf bun, French onion soup, and flourless chocolate cake were great.
Staff was very knowledgeable! There’s a HUGE,separate gf menu! Had a wonderful dinner of French onion soup, filet, and au gratin potatoes. I even received my own plate of gf bread ~ which never happens! You must visit this gem when in Chicago!
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 place has delish food, great design and ambiance, and amazing allergy protocols. You can go on their website to learn more. Food even comes out with an allergy toothpick, which is so reassuring.
Great food, varied choices for GF (separate menu), elegant atmosphere! One of our favorite places for a special occasion!
Can't imagine finding a safer, better option...with more choices
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.
Great food, elegant atmosphere, lots of gf options. They have GF French onion soup, their own gluten free bread which tastes really good. Macadamia nut crusted halibut was exceptional as well as Cedar plank salmon.
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.
pepperoni pizza..the bomb...the bread was fluffy and tasty, great menu with mac and cheese. yes, I said mac and cheese gluten free. this is a must eat while in Chicago!
this place is insane. they partner with the celiac center at Chicago University and have an awesome and extensive GF menu. they make their own bread and pizza crust and have desserts as well. A MUST stop in Chicago.
Extensive gluten-free menu! The steak and cookies were delicious!! I was also able to order gluten-free beer.
Extensive GF menu! Very safe. They have GF options even on their kids menu. The adult GF menu is a FULL 2 page menu! They make their own GF rolls from Domata living flour - tasty! They had 4 dessert options!
We eat there every year for graduation, and it's always delicious. Definitely try the macadamia nut encrusted halibut, I am still dreaming about that today and it's been nearly two months since graduation😂. Huge gluten free menu, a wonderful restaurant to go to.
Would love to give this location 100 stars. Never ever disappoints. Great food and thorough knowledge of celiac needs. Gf menu is massive. Go and enjoy and feel 'normal'!! Nobody coming out to 'talk' to you. Just order off menu and enjoy!
Loved this restaurant. The server was not very knowledgable but the menu was extensive and my meal was great. The server just asked others about the questions I had. My friends had bread before their meal which they kept away from my plates. Then all of a sudden someone brought me GF bread too!!! Very nice. The chocolate chip cookies were sooo good. I would definitely go back.
The food here was amazing. The service was the best we've had, possibly ever. The gluten free menu was a full menu with full items. Not the typical, 'you can have this but without the bread, cheese, sauce, and flavor'. The homemade bread was absolutely delicious. I felt like someone without food allergies there. Shockingly for the high quality, the prices were very reasonable. I've paid far more for far less. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Delicious food, great service and wonderful understanding of GF. Steak was very high quality and they even had warm GF bread, and chocolate chip cookies.
Love this place! Great GF menu and amazing food. I've eaten here several times with no issues.
Absolutely amazing!! The gluten free menu is the largest and most extensive GF menu I have ever encountered. Everything was amazing - the French Onion soup was fantastic, the Spinach and Artichoke dip was delicious, and the Mac and Cheese was phenomenal! Wonderful, wonderful place!
Excellent Gluten Free Menu!!
Wildfire has a pretty extensive GF menu and definitely has a staff that knows their stuff! Really nice place.
This place is gluten-free heaven! The best bread ever! Mac n Cheese and pastas & cakes!
Spectacular! They even bring delicious homemade GF bread and butter to your table! Thank you, Wildfire!!
While we were in Chicago for the Celiac Awareness Tour, we decided to stay an extra night and spend some time in the city. After a little research on a few different apps and websites - both Yelp and FindMeGlutenFree recommended Wildfire for dinner. I'm notorious for making reservations before we go anywhere because I am so impatient and hate waiting in a crowded little area for a table. So I frequently use Opentable.com to secure a seat before leaving the house. The only times available were 5:15pm or 9:30pm. We decided on 5pm because we hadn't really eaten lunch due to being at the convention. When we got there, I asked for the gluten free menu. Everyone was very accommodating - Check out this gluten free menu!! Are you kidding me? Was I dreaming? I hit the gluten free Chicago jack pot. Since we were there and they had this great menu - we were definitely going to try some stuff. One of the things I miss is being able to order an appetizer occasionally. All of them are usually fried but I really enjoy having a snack before my meal comes. We decided to try the baked goat cheese. OMG - it came with gluten free pita chips that were to die for. After looking at the menu - we both decided on a nice juicy cheeseburger on a gluten free bun. How often do I get this? Never so I certainly was going to go for it! Aaron even decided on a gluten free burger with me! They were delicious. The bun tasted great. The burger was delicious with no gluten filled fillers - cooked to perfection! Then we shared sides of a sweet potato and a twice baked potato. Totally fantastic as well. Enough for 3 people each! The entire time we were dining - our waitress continued to come back and make sure everything was ok. If I had a question about something, she checked with the chef or the manager and came back to tell me what she found out. I've never felt so safe dining out! There needs to be way more gluten free menu restaurants like Wildfire!! During the meal I enjoyed some wine and they even brought out a gluten free (hot and fresh) bun to eat while Aaron had his regular bread!
Steak and GF bread was very good
best GF food I've EVER had!!! amazing GF bread. out of this world GF chocolate cake! my husband didnt know it was GF!!!
Great menu with lots of choices. The staff is all well informed. I sat at the bar and had a great time. It is a fun place with great food
We have dined here with great success in the past. This time, unfortunately the gf pepperoni pizza Nima tested positive for gluten. They remade it and it tested positive again. Very frustrating. Update: tried this location again about a year later and no change. Gluten free pizza tested positive again. Manager states that there is no dedicated space or utensils and that they really can't do Celiac gf. We won't be back!
Went for lunch, staff were knowledgeable, gluten free menu was extensive. My 9 year old son had the cheeseburger from the kids menu and I had the homemade black bean burger from the gluten free menu. We could not have the fries due to shared fryers. We both really enjoyed our meals and had nil issues later.
5 stars for not getting sick but 3 stars for taste and lack of options for those that are also dairy free. I ended up getting 3 veggie side dishes as I was too overwhelmed with making sure my dish was both GF & DF. Overall good experience - yellow slip was filled out with allergies and signed off by manager and ran out separately to avoid cross contamination.
I was blown away with the quality, options and service at the Glenview location. On the two occasions I ventured to this Schaumburg location I have had a severe reaction. The last being two days ago. PLEASE BE AWARE. I even told the server that the time before I had gotten sick. My server insisted that there was no way I could have gotten sick the last time as the item I ordered was "naturally gluten free". Not only did I not appreciate her faul attitude, but her lack of concern and attention to my dietary needs was evident by this last trip. I was sick again within hours. I know it is general practice for the serve to inform the kitchen by filling out a yellow slip to go with the order, and generally the dish comes with a tag saying "allergy" on it, signifying that it was prepared as a gluten free dish. Neither of the times I have been here has this happened. Now I realise it wasn't just someone forgetting to put the tag on the dish when it was served, it was pure negligence and lack of care. I do hope their staff take GF dietary requests seriously, as people who suffer from celiac like myself do not simply choose to eat this way...
Been here many times. GF menu available. Server will offer GF bread. Husband had the Spinach salad which is always tasty and he did not get sick later. I had the Grilled Chicken Wildorf salad. Unfortunately, the chicken was overdone and dry which is unusual for this place. The salad itself was great without the chicken, so ask for it without the chicken and croutons.
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.
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.
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.
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!
