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 steak I ordered cooked medium. And they brought me a steak that felt it had been cooked once and then reheated in the microwave. The ambiance was subpar.

Food was great, but the service was terrible. My reservation was at six and my girlfriend and I arrived early and it took us over 40 minutes to get our first course ( appetizer). We order right away our drinks and it took more than 30 minutes to get them. When we finally got them we could had tell that they were sitting at the bar for a while because they were really warm. It wasn’t worth for what I paid.

The small chopped salad was fabulous. It was more than enough for one person. The corn bread was amazing. Warm and very tasty.

I visited this location because I heard so much about it. Ordered a NY Strip, Med-Well with Au Gratin potatoes. The potatoes were cold, the steak had no flavor and was overly tough. Never dining their again!

Our server, Candice was amazing! She was on it with our orders and the timing was great as well. My husband had the cheeseburger and I had the porterhouse with a blue cheese crust!

I’ve had so many steaks in my life, but that was an amazing steak! Cooked as I requested with ample portions. The ambience is very 20s-40s with the mob style dark ambience which I fell in love with.

Definitely will come back again, hopefully with better parking.

Great service and amazing dinner ! My husband and I ordered off the Valentine’s Day menu. Great special!

Loveeee the bread basket, chopped salad, horseradish crust on filet, and the amazing chocolate silk pie.

This is an old school steak house where you leave extremely full and happy.

Went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Seated promptly and had an exceptional server with a great sense of humor. Appetizer was very good, dinner of crusted filet medallions for my wife and crusted filet for myself were perfectly cooked and very tender. Desert was a fantastic finish to a great dinner. Highly recommend!

Very loud. Very expensive. Food was just okay. Mixed drink was excellent. Service was great. We were close to the food up/dishes area. Constant slamming of dishes. Surrounding tables were loud . Not a romantic atmosphere, not at least where we were sitting. The Porterhouse steak was pretty good for the price. The crab cakes were not, especially at $36! $7 salad was good. The cucumber spa cocktail was great but $13. Not the romantic atmosphere that I thought it would be from the website.

We went to Wildfire for Valentines Day and did the Valentines Day menu for two. Unfortunately, although our appetizer and salad arrived timely, there was quite a lag between the salad and our entrees. Given that the restaurant was utilizing a menu with only a few options available, you would have thought they would have been more efficient... not so much..,

Went for Valentine’s Day because it looked like a good menu. Some of the menu items were very good (read: entrees), but most of the appetizers, salad, dessert items were poorly done and felt cheap. It’s okay as a convenience but there are better places to go in the city.

Skirt steak was terrific as always, but the au gratin potatoes which normally are outstanding were undercooked. Staff are very efficient and pleasant.

Awesome food and service! This is our second time visiting this location for Valentine’s Day and it did not disappoint! They even accommodated us after we were 25 minutes late to our reservation due to horrible traffic. 5 out of 5 stars!

We had a great experience. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and an excellent visit with my transplant surgeon at Northwestern medicine. Our waitress was awesome, everybody was really great, and all the food was excellent. Then desert just blew us away! The candles were a nice touch. Thank you guys for a great afternoon.

Our orders were completely messed up, and on top of it the manager tried to take our food back and then serve the same thing under a separate cover........ The meal was ruined...

Sever seemed confused the entire time. Probably due to our large party. Couldn’t keep orders straight. Was very unfamiliar with cocktails or typical cocktails not on the menu.

I would recommend a friend to the Oak Brook, IL Wildfire over Chicago Wildfire. New Year's Eve my guests and I were at the Oak Brook for dinner and everything was perfect. The Chicago Wildfire was poor February 8th. We waited for a hour to get our food. The Manager went to the kitchen to check on the food. When we got the food it wasn't hot. The steaks were have to cook. The seafood was overcook and some were undercook. The food was basically rush out because we was basicly waiting for a hour.
