"J Alexander's is consistently excellent and I always enjoy eating there. A bit of a bump in the road when my steak (ordered medium) was delivered medium rare. I had to send it back to be cooked properly, and unfortunately when that happens, my wife was better than 1/2 way done with her dinner before mine arrived. Not much of an apology from the server or manager, no offer of a drink or dessert. I am always surprised when a restaurant of that cailber gets the temperature wrong. All in all, excellent food and enjoyable."

Wildwood Restaurant in Geneva offers upscale American cuisine including oak-grilled steaks, fresh seafood, poultry, pasta and vegetarian dishes. Dine in the warm ambience of our dining room, upscale lounge or our spacious courtyard. Extensive wine, specialty beer and martini offerings complement Executive Chef Corby's dinner, lunch and ala carte Sunday brunch menus.

"I met with a friend for dinner at Wildwood. You can always count on the food quality to be outstanding. I think it's the best steak in Geneva."

Francesca's Tavola is the 9th restaurant in "The Family of Francesca Restaurants," bringing the downtown Arlington Heights area a restaurant with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices. The menu features the zesty earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. <br />The restaurant is located within walking distance of the Central Business District in downtown Arlington Heights. It is conveniently located near the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, which hosts live theater; including Second City, and the new downtown shopping area and movie theaters. Arlington Race Track is only a short drive away.

"Was hosting a client for lunch. The restaurant was very busy, but the service was great and the food excellent. I was surprised at how fast the food came out, considering the activity level."

"I can always count on a good experience at Harry's. The only glitch was having to send back an undercooked steak. I don't expect that from a restaurant of this caliber. Overall, the dinner was great and I enjoyed it."

Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

"The restaurant was busy, and the server was very good. My steak was undercooked, which really surprised me for a restaurant of this quality. It was fine after additional cooking, but of course when it came, my guest was halfway done with her dinner. I chalk this up as an anomaly at a good restaurant."
