    Biggest gluten free menu I've ever seen! Food was delicious, and they make their own gluten free buns and pizza dough. The staff was very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend!

    Hit or miss at this location. If you get a server that listens or cares, you should be fine. I've been there 10 times and I've been bit twice. Oak Brook Center location has never let me down.

    Wonderful. I always love going to Wildfire for their gluten free menu. Its so nice to get GF bread at a restaurant. Its the little things :) The last time I visited, I had the cedar planked salmon and it had to be one of the best things I've ever tasted. Seriously. I rarely finish all my food and I ate every last bite of my meal. So yummy! I always will go to Wildfire for a fancy dinner occasion!

    I thought this place was completely overrated. I had heard SO much about this place and was really looking forward to my visit. Things started off well with a tasty GF bread as appetizer. Then we got ready to order. I was pleased to see that they offered GF hamburgers *with* a bun! But I quickly noticed that many of the GF menu option simply modified their regular options... By skipping the sauces!! Personally, I don't need a "special menu" to tell me I can make an item gluten free if I skip the sauce. To me, a true GF menu would involve offering substitute sauces that are GF. Anyway. I ordered salmon and my mom ordered a GF hamburger. My sauce-free salmon was incredibly dry and kinda tasteless in comparison to my sister's (she compared them since hers was not GF). The "hamburger bun" was actually the same bread used as the appetizer. We liked it better as an appetizer. It really didn't taste or have proper texture to be a hamburger bun. It was the type of GF bread that literally falls apart if it gets wet. And that's exactly what it did. By the time the hamburger arrived, it had already soaked through the bun so the whole thing was a wet, soggy mess. All in all, service was friendly and nice but the product seems overpriced and a little under par to me. I'd rather go elsewhere for those prices.

    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.

    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.

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!

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.

    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.

    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.
