Would not recommend. Went here for Thanksgiving Dinner. The server did not meet with us before bringing out foods. We explained we couldn't have gluten so we couldn't have the rolls he brought to the table. He left them there and about 30 minutes later brought gluten free hamburger buns that were slightly toasted but left on a plate so they were all wet on the bottom. After spending almost $200 for dinner for 3 of us my husband got sick within an hour of leaving the restaurant. Would not recommend and will not return.

All food was delivered labeled for me as gluten free and made without cross contamination . I ordered the prime rib with a sweet potato, food was high quality and the server was willing to ask the chef questions to ensure my needs were met

I ordered a gluten free pizza and it tested positive for gluten on my Nima sensor. Although they seem very very knowledgeable, they are clearly not careful enough. Thankful for the Nima and not relying on others’ word!

Have a dedicated GF menu which is just narrowed down list of regular menu items that aren’t introduced to wheat elements. Have GF bread for the table which is a nice touch and tasty. Typical steakhouse fare. Got the baked potato as a side. Good, no issues. Definitely been to way better steakhouses though.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!
