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.

Celebrated my son's birthday, had a fabulous meal, great service and nice ambiance. He said, "it's the best meal I ever had!" Thank you Wildfire!

Really impressive service; friendly, professional, attentive and exceptionally well timed. Steaks are awesome ( my favorite one is petite filet mignon), as well as appetizers and soups ( French onion is amazing). Super well crafted cocktails.

I am usually very happy with the food. This time I ordered the three medallions and was disappointed. I will return just order something different. The service was excellent. My husband loved the tuna

Our go-to place for celebratory dinners, Wildfire never disappoints! Absolutely delicious Filet and side. Delicious drinks and dessert. Always marvelous, and I love the ‘40’s club feel.

We went for my husband's birthday and the food and service were excellent. We have no complaints and will definitely return. We noticed a number of people had birthdays there that night, so people obviously consider it a special occasion place.

We booked this reservation for my birthday dinner. Prior to ordering I let the waiter know I was allergic to tree nuts and strawberries. He didn’t confirm that my food was prepared free of free nuts until after it was already brought out. At the end of the meal he brought out the celebratory dessert that was ice cream and a bowl of strawberries. I was shocked and so disappointed in their attention to a life threatening allergy. This is dangerous behavior. We will never return.

Reserved seating for 6 for a Saturday dinner and while this is usually a very good place to dine in terms of food, decor, ambiance, courteous staff, this visit was only so-so. First, I ordered the Chicken Sandwich which was seasonless and tasted burnt, bun was soggy and not warm, fries were lukewarm as was the water I received for tea. I opted for the apple cobbler dessert which was doughy in the center but the end pieces were better. Disappointed.

My son ordered the smoky chicken flatbread which he did not like, again no flavor. However others in our party ordered the Ribs which they described as delicious. The steak was undercooked for one of the party and baked potato was cold. Meal was sent back and everything was corrected to her satisfaction. The Barbecue Chicken was described as being good. Cookie dessert was okay. Server was polite.

We are regulars at Schaumburg. It is strange sometimes when visiting different Wildfires. We were downtown meeting a visiting family member when we decided to eat at the River North Wildfire. It gave us a real appreciation of our outstanding service and treatment at Schaumburg. This was our fourth visit to the Erie location and most likely the last.

There was hair on my steak and the au gratin potatoes were hard. My server’s customer service was great, I can’t complain about that, however, I will not visit this location again. The Oak Brook location does not disappoint.

Always a wonderful meal! Prime rib is the best, double baked potato spectacular, filet trio always excellent! Wildfire is not the most wheelchair friendly facility but the staff went above & beyond to make sure we were accommodated. Service was point

Wildfire is one of our go to restaurants. Consistently high quality food and cocktails, attentive service, and classic steak house atmosphere make for a great experience.
