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!
I am so happy! They have an amazing menu, lots of choices. And they brought me a gluten free biscuit. It was great!!!
Very good gluten free burgers and served on gluten free restaurant made bread. The burgers are very large and filling. As a side I had the au gratin potatoes. They were delicious!
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.
Superb! Atmosphere, food and service all excellent!
The best GF restaurant I have seen. Very accommodating, even in a large group of 90 people and with no advanced notice. . So capable we had my daughter's rehearsal dinner there with an entire GF dinner for all 40 people. Staff very knowledgeable. Food delicious. The chocolate chip cookies are baked fresh, chewy and warm.
excellent GF bread. extensive GF menu. service and food excellent.
Their GF bread was amazing! It wasn't hard like a brick like most bread I've had, and had a satisfying taste. The GF penne was tasty, and they're willing to show you the brand of pasta they use--I'm planning on tracking it down, as it's the best I've had (brown rice flour). Good flour less chocolate cake. Plus, it has fantastic ambiance and music, and I felt like a normal person just eating a somewhat modified meal.
Great GF bread. Large portions, but slow to get meal. Enjoyed French Onion soup.
A very large GF menu with different options. The service was great and the food was even better. I really like that they flagged my food made me feel more confident that they were taking care in preparing my food. Did not have any issues after eating there and would without a doubt eat there again!
it was fantastic. we started with gf bread. I ordered the beet and goat cheese salad and the chicken moreno with au gratin potatoes. my husband had pizza. we were too full for dessert. can't wait to go back.
wonderful experience every time I eat here. I have a very sensitive allergy and have never had a problem. Probably one of the largest GF menus in the area with plenty of options both GF vegetarian and GF meat dishes.
Absolutely fantastic! They have an extensive gluten free menu, everyone is trained on the allergy, and there is even a separate spot in the kitchen for gluten free prep! The food was scrumptious. Plus, to my surprise, they serve gluten free bread for you to munch on while you order/wait. I felt normal. And did I mention how tasty? Yum!
They have a lot of gluten free items on their menu but my favorite is actually their bread...it's not the heavy brick kind!
Extensive gluten free menu. Great food. Super service. Gf food comes with a flag in it to avoid confusing plates.
Other reviewers said it all - I thought they ha given me the wrong menu because there were so many options!
has an entire 2 page Gf menu. this restaurant really deserves 5 stars but my some of my Gf pancakes were not cooked all the way through. although that is because they cooked me regular pancakes and had to recook them. I had candied Bacon pancakes they were really good. I will definitely go back for another try!!
Agree with the other reviewers! Love that they provide gf bread instead of their regular complimentary cornbread. Had their gf French onion soup and chicken club sandwich - both were excellent! And they come out with little "allergy" tags so you know they were being careful and you're getting the right thing. Very impressed with service and food.
Fantastic! So many options and knowledgeable servers. Love, love, love this place.
For starters, it's nice when you walk into a restaurant and they offer gluten free bread! Plenty of menu options to choose from steak, fish, chicken and pork entrees. Also, great side dishes including scalloped potatoes :)
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!
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.
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. :)
This is our go to restaurant for any specialty dinner we have.
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!
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.
like others have said, Wildfire is hands down THE BEST gluten free restaurant in the Twin Cities. Great expansive menu, delicious & abundant gf menu. I mean GF food that is superb, not ok or a steak with no sides or seasoning. Everything is that good, the salads are something you'll actually enjoy and look forward to! !
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. :)
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!
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.
