Glenview >Wildfire Glenview
“It was as if they put the best possible ingredients into a dish and forgot to put flavor into the dish.”
Good but not great. I've eaten here a dozen times. My husband likes this place. Portions are good size although they seem to have gotten smaller recently. The steaks are good but not melt in your mouth. I recommend any of the soups. One of the better places in town but not the best.
So, I heard about a restaurant named Wildfire, and that Michael Jordan himself is a regular. As a consequence, I thought Wildfire would be exceptional. However, our findings did not match our expectations?at all.
So, we go to Wildfire in Glenview and dine one day. We ordered 2 bisques and 2 plates of steak medallions - 2 baked potato crusts, 1 bernaise crust, and 1 horseradish crust. First came the soup. It was ok. The ingredients were high quality but the taste was below average. It was as if they put the best possible ingredients into a dish and forgot to put flavor into the dish. Then, the greatest disappointment that I have probably ever had for $19.99 came to our table: the medallion steaks. A medallion, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is, "something resembling a large medal; especially : a tablet or panel in a wall or window bearing a figure in relief, a portrait, or an ornament." What we received was not "something resembling a large medal." The steak medallions were more like very small onion rings with garnish. These ?onion rings? were small. I mean really small. You could have cut one of them up in half, ate it, and then about 1/4 of your dish would be done. That would be about $5.00 if you are counting. That is unacceptable. Oh, I should not forget, these ?small onion rings? had ?special? crusts. Yeh, but as we saw earlier, as the steak medallions did not look like steak medallions, so the crusts on the ?small onion rings? did not look like crusts either. They looked like garnish that was thrown on top of the steaks?and then burnt. But the fun does not end here, no, no, no. The dessert came over.
