  • "The food was very good and I would go there any time of the day. The service was awesome"
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "This is our favorite restaurant. As always the food was very good."

  • "This is the second time with poor service. This time the famous house salad was mushy and no zip. Super disappointing."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "Everything from drinks, appetizers, to soup/salad, to dinner, to dessert (which we had to take home because we were so stuffed!) was fantastic! My only complaint was that it was kind of loud. We were seated by a large party of women, so I'm sure that didn't help. Overall, though, food and service were great."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Very loud, not a good place to carry on a conversation but good food and good service"

    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "One of our nearby favorites, especially now that I'm gluten free. Unfortunately this visit was not great. Service wasn't great. We rarely saw the waiter, food took a long time to arrive, and we had to wait for a table despite having a reservation."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Best steak ever! Outstanding service and food! Came from Florida to celebrate wedding anniversary and Wildfire had to be the place to celebrate!"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The wait staff went out of their way to please us. The food was fantastic and the staff was helpful and friendly. Will definitely go there again."

  • "Friday night is always busy, a reservation is a must. We had the Prime Rib tonight which was excellent, beautifully prepared to order, with little if any waste. Our waiter was attentive and everything came to us in a timely fashion. Specials are usually interesting, but tonight was a good night for a delicious and excellent choice at Wildfire that is always available at Lunch and Dinner. 5 STAR MEAL FOR SURE."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Had a wonderful evening out with my friends for my bday. Everyone ordered something different (drinks, appetizers, entrees, salad and desserts) and all the food was great with nice size portions too. Our server was excellent as well and we could not have had a better experience. Thank you!"

  • "Wildfire is my favorite restaurant for many reasons. Wildfire is an elegant old school retro steakhouse that serves stick to your ribs food that is always prepared to perfection. The servers are always knowledgeable and attentive. Their cocktails are fabulous. I had (and always have) the Martini Flight. The martini flight is 4 mini martinis of different flavors. They are delicious and will have you feeling fine in no time. My boyfriend had a Cherry Mojito and it was delicious and refreshing. I had a steak & scallop combo with creamed spinach and it was delicious and cooked perfectly (like always!). My boyfriend had a steak and shrimp combo; I wanted to steal his shrimp they looked so good. Both of us were more than satisfied."

  • "The Atmosphere was excellent and was a great place to have conversation and good food. My Swordfish was a little overdone and my friends steak was asked for Medium Well was really Well Done. Still the food was flavorful. Overall is was a good experience."

  • "It was horrible,was our 30th anniversary. 2 bottles of on wine list.Out of both Finally after 40 minutes I was served a martini. And my food filet and lobster within 5 minutes of my martini arriving. My steak was black, ordered medium well and lobster was so dry and no flavor. The manager came around and knew we couldn't get any of the wines I chose so he offered to pay for my martini. I was shocked at how little concern there was with everything. My friends have had parties there with 25-30 people and we've always been happy with the food. I was a little disappointed when my meal was $51.00 and I had to pay extra for a vegetable. My husband had bone-in rib-eye and I believe, bleu cheese crusted and was happy with his."

  • "Very long wait for everyrhing, i had to ask again for our drinks after appetizer & then was served wrong drink & was finished w dinner & still no drink, wrong side w dinner, bit in big shell in crab cake- this was a monday"

  • "Made a reservation for mom's bday dinner. Sat us in a booth in the crowded bar. About a $150 for two steaks a salad, an appetizer and 3 drinks. Service was nothing special, average."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food was very good, the experience was not. Too loud, too cramped and service was obnoxious. Our bus boy filled our water glasses at least 15 times and was always there. Might return with the right group because the food was good and vibe was lively, but never for a quiet, relaxing dinner."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The chicken wasn't what I expected and they were great about getting me something quickly and without a fuss. Every kitchen occasionally has a mishap but they were very apologetic and made it right. Better than expected."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "My husband and I had dinner before going to Drury Lane. Food was excellent, our waitress, Linda Smith, was superior. The gluten free menu for my husband was actually a real menu, not a piece of paper with a few choices on it. The gluten free chocolate cake with ice cream was a surprise dessert to celebrate our 50 th anniversary and was so appreciated. And it was delicious! Thanks for helping us celebrate. Making the reservations on line was a real plus. Thanks again."

  • "I go to Wildfire often and am always amazed at the great food and moderate prices. Service was EXCELLENT. We were shopping and went to the restaurant early (4:30PM), when we couldn't get a later reservation at the last minute. The restaurant was busy and active. Service was outstanding and everything we ordered delicious. Remains one of my favorites."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The food was very good but the tables were cramped and I felt rushed. The wait staff hovered and swooped on our table to remove dishes even before we were finished. This did not make me feel welcomed - I would not go back. If you are going to spend over a hundred dollars for dinner the experience should not feel like a drive through fast food joint."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Spot on perfect, pure perfection. Friendly Staff right in with reservation. Not one single complaint. Highly recommended."

  • "My wife and I eat here at least once a month. The food is always greatand the service is always good."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Service was patchy on my Friday night visit, having to ask for the wine menu twice, remind them about my drinks order and nurse an empty glass for way too long. Steak was poor - tough and tasteless - and my wife's went back twice, one way over, once way under. It was taken off the check without asking, which was a nice touch, but it still spoilt date night for my wife and I. I've been to the one downtown several times, and will stick to that in future even though it's not as convenient for us the suburbs."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Wildfire is one of my favorite restaurants / bars. I've been to many Wildfire locations a great number of times. But on this particular evening at the Oak Brook location, my guest and I were put in a small room in the back of the restaurant that was quiet and dull and not lively at all. All other sections of this place usually have a great atmosphere. But this offshoot section was less to be desired. If you can be placed in the main dining area or near the bar it is lively and vibrant. But if you get stuck in this side room, it can be quite dull."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Celebrated my wife's birthday at one of our favorite places. It was good, but my prime rib was less flavorful than on past visits. Trio of medallions were tender and all but horseradish crust were excellent; horseradish crust a bit overwhelmed the beef. Potatoes au gratin always a good carb choice. We spilt a small chopped salad, which provides plenty for two. Red wine flight was a nice choice. We will return, hoping for a return to restaurant's usual high standards."

  • "Fabulous service from Anthony. Fabulous hostess that took me at the exact time of my reservation even thought there was a wait for people without one. Fabulous food, as always. Thank you."

  • "Good food but noisy. I enjoyed the energy but portions are too big."

  • "My party enjoyed themselves as every group I bring to Wildfire. Everything is way above average. One of the folks in my party said it was the best meal she had in a long long time."

  • "Travel to this area for work and try to eat here once during each visit. Love the food,the atmosphere & the wait staff is always friendly and attentive. Only downside is that it's very loud inside. Hard to hear the person sitting right next to you."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Our food was great, the waiter was patient and energetic, and the time overall was great. But the kicker for us was that I had made a 6-person reservation, but didn't think to add the two 2-month old babies we had in tow. When we got there, they told us we ought to have included those two little kiddos because they actually put out a carrier-type device whereby the child got to "sit" at the table in his/her car seat. To do this, we suddenly became a table of 8, and they were totally cool with it and re-located us to a larger table asap. On top of all that, having our child elevated off the floor gave us peace of mind that no waiters would step on them running around, and we could see them sleeping while we were eating."

  • "The waiter gave us the wrong name Didn't ask if we wanted appetizers We were celebrating a birthday and when I asked about complimentary birthday dessert he said they don't offer anything free for any celebrations. But I was just there and they did offer free mini chocolate dessert with ice cream. After asking 3 more times and he finally says yes we do offer a mini chocolate cake & ice cream? It's 6 of us at the table but he only brings 4 spoons, WTH? After 30 mins he finally comes with the bill which had was wrong. We asked for the manager, told him our waiter name and the manager says, Who is Pedro? No one works here by that name. Who the heck gives the wrong name for service? I am done with Wildfire in Oakbrook, IL."

  • "This is a great restaurant especially if you have special dietery restrictions. They are very knowledgeable, understanding and accomodating. We have always had good meals when we go to this location of the restaurant. I recommend that everyone should have a great meal and experience here."

  • "I ordered a filet and it was dry. However, my date ordered a porterhouse that was juicy and tender. We both ordered them medium well. I know different meat cuts cook differently but my steak was almost burned. The mac and cheese was dry as well...not cheesy at all and my broccoli was literally sitting in a pool of water. On a higher note, the restaurant was lively. It was a busy night but I only had ot wait about three minutes outisde my reservation to be seated. Our waitress was amazing and knowledgable. I wish I could remember her name. Despite my food not being the best at the time, I do not believe this is a regular occurence. I would go back and maybe be VERY specific when ordering or send something back to be fixed."

  • "I was looking forward to dinner since we've been there before with a group of people and enjoyed it so I made reservations on Open table for 8:00 on a Saturday night. We arrived at 10 minutes to 8 and were told that we'd be seated a little bit after 8 and we were given a pager. I was ok with this as the place was packed. Unfortunately, the bar is small and there were no seats so we hung around the hostess area. While waiting, 2 other people walked in and said they had 8 o'clock reservations for 2 and they were seated immediately. That ticked me off, I asked one of the other hostess' why I wasn't seated but they were and got a few excuses and they said I'd be seated next. Got seated in a bad table at the bar, very cramped and loud."
