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!!

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!

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.

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.

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

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...

This is a go-to spot for us. The staff has great procedures to understand how to prepare their dishes for certain allergies and adjust accordingly. I’ve never gotten sick from here despite eating there almost once per month.

They used to be great and very safe. I got massively glutened here in spite of putting in an allergen alert with the server. Never again. It has taken months to recover.

Separate GF menu. They have worked with the University of Chicago’s Celiac Disease Center on their menu and practices for GF. I have eaten here many times and have always had a great experience.

I’ve gotten sick both times eating at this location. I am a celiac, but I’m not particularly sensitive; if you are, I would not eat here. They definitely have cross contamination issues. I will not go back and risk it again!!

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.

Overpriced and the food wasn’t great. The GF bun crumbled apart leaving me eating the steak on its own. The au gratin potatoes were yummy but they’re not worth going back for.

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.

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.
