Step back in time 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 service staff were all very friendly and handled our large-ish group (8) well. The food was good, not incredible, but prices were fairly reflective of that. I particularly enjoyed my cocktail and the redskin mashed potatoes. We will come again.

Sat 3/16 6:30pm reservation, friendly front staff, extremely busy, seated timely. Reservations are highly suggested without there’s up to a 2 hr wait. Good food and service, reasonable prices. Our waitress Lynda was most attentive. Good dining experience.

I went with my boyfriend for a birthday dinner and Dirk was our server. He was outstanding! Has been there for 14 years and was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. The food was outstanding, ordered a ribeye and chicken with artichokes. Will definitely be back soon!

The food was exceptional as always. My only issue was that it was very warm in the restaurant. I know it's an open kitchen design, but I have never had that problem before. Lovely evening though.

I have been going to wildfire in for many years. This time I found it to be very run down looking and dirty. Very disappointing. The service was OK at best. I think this restaurant needs serious attention

So we tried Wildfire and it was not what I expected. The ambiance was good and all but the food was disappointing. The food portions were good for the price but the taste was very bland. My girls ordered the burger of the adult menu which were just the right amount to fill them up. We had the duck and the half chicken and both were very flavorless. I liked that they brought us a Dessert as we were celebrating my husbands birthday.

Made this reservation for my wife’s birthday & based on a recommendation from someone else. The service was slow and food took over an hour from the time we ordered. Food was okay but nothing special. They sat us directly in front of a private party room. Diners and servers were constantly bumping into us and our table as they entered and exited the private room. Will not be going back to this location again.

One of the best LEYE restaurants. A little pricey for lunch. My chicken breast was slightly dry, but the soup & dessert were to die for.

From the minute we walked in the door we received outstanding service. The hostess greeted us with a smile and had us seated immediately. Our waiter came to our table immediately after we were seated to take our drink order and asked if we would like to order an appetizer as we were waiting for an additional person. Food came out in a timely manner and was hot and delicious. Experience was very positive.

I’ve eaten here on several occasions and have enjoyed my past visits. This last time went from a 9 to 2. Very expensive for what we received . Steaks ordered by 3 of us were not good, have had better at a family style restaurant, I ordered shrimp scampi, got 6 shriveled shrimp with sauce for $26 and paid $2.5 more for sweet potato. Ridiculous. Won’t be back, much better restaurants in Oakbrook.

Had reservation for 6 people at 6:30 on a Saturday night.
They offered to sit us down early even thought not everyone was there, thats always nice.
Food is always very good.
Lunch another time was a little disappointing. Sat in the bar area, felt like a cafeteria, very crowded and loud. Overall very good, will continue to go there.

Since the food and wait staff were outstanding, I would recommend Wildfire-Oakbrook with the caveat that the noise volume in the main dining area makes conversation difficult. My other suggestion would be to request a table that is away from the kitchen. Some in my party were disturbed by the kitchen view and activity.

New York strip was a little tough and overcooked. Fresh french fries and key lime pie were fabulous! We were a table of six women and server brought one check. Please train staff to ask at beginning how checks are being handled.
