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.

I love Wildfire... I’ve probably had dinner 30x there.
This was by far the worst meal EVER!! I ordered $45 porterhouse steak from waiter recommendation.
I had better Quality steak in frozen food section.
Even waiter looked at it noticing something wrong.
I did get a credit for $15 👎🏻 I think my wildfire days are on hold for awhile.

My wife and I like the wild fire restaurant in Oak Brook. The food, service, and atmosphere are great. The one downtown was lacking. I can not say one thing was poor. Just the whole experience in this restaurant was less then the one we go to in Oak Brook.

Food was good but not hot. I ordered a ribery. Brocolli was my side and it was too firm to enjoy. Should have been cooked more. Service was friendly but not good. Drinks took too long to be delivered. Atmosphere was bustling so traffic was good. Need to update decor.

My burger was amazing however my girlfriends sandwich was terrible it came out cold barely any meat on it or cheese. We also were brought odd chewy cornbread that was practically cold somehow. It got stuck in both of our teeth from how stale it seemed and had a filmy texture to it. The price is also almost twice what other locations prices are with below average service, not as good quality food, and just an overall less quality experience.

I am wondering what happened with this restaurant. Trio steaks used to be wonderful.
Did they change for cheeper meat?
My daughter steaks were very well done, she ordered medium.
Dark rolls were also changed.

We have been to Wildfire several times and would previously have recommended it highly. This time, my brothers were in town so we had a party of 8. We came here in large part because Wildfire has a great gluten free menu and our party needs that.

We were promptly seated for our 6:30 reservation but did not get our entrees until 7:55. I do not know how the expediter messed up the scheduling for the table. Those who ordered soup received their soup and the rest of us watched them enjoy it. Then those who ordered a salad received the salad after the soup was done so the soup eaters could watch the salad eaters.

When the entrees came out, the tuna steak had to be sent back as it has been under the heat lamp so it was beyond well done. The replacement tuna steak was sizzle charred outside and cold inside. But again, more people with no food watching others eat.

I do not think a 630 reservation should interfere with those diners who were trying to catch a play. I do not know what overwhelmed the kitchen such that our table's schedule was so off. We made our order selections fairly promptly.

Again, this review is for this visit only. We have previously enjoyed Wildfire in the past. Unfortunately, with all the dinner options available in Chicago, we may not be back.

We were warmly greeted as we entered and the experience only got better and better. The attention to our dining needs was spot on (no hovering but also not forgotten). The food was excellent as always and we truly appreciated the very thoughtful special occasion dessert.
We will come back again and again for the consistently excellent service and food.
Thank you so much!

No service initially. Had to call food service manager to table, he took our drink order and served us our drinks. Nunbo busboy, brought us bread and butter and explained specials. Eventually clueless server came and took our order. Did not explain specials and we requested more butter. That came after dinner. Thank goodness for theBEST bus person Numbo, he wrapped our entree remains and was the best representative of excellence in Service we are used to at Wildfire. I wii be at Wildfire in Glenview Wednesday for lunch reservation at noon and hopefully we will receive better service!!

I had a date with my 10 year old grandson! We shared a delicious filet dinner with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables - delicious! My grandson loves to cook and wants to become a chef - we had a nice conversation with one of your chefs and a look at the kitchen. Our waiter, Zared, was excellent and met all our requests in a very professional manner. We’ll be back!!

The food was over cooked, server was just plain simple horrible. He came to the table 2-3 times to take our order and bring the food and bring the check. In between that not even once did he come by to ask us if everything was good or to see if we wanted another drink. I am very disappointed and most likely won’t be going back. I am so disappointed in Wildfire!!
