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.

Excellent restaurant...glad I made a reservation! I had the salmon...really good and the au graten potatoes are to die for! Wine is expensive, but good with an ample pour. Waitress was attentive without being annoying!

I've eaten at the restaurant a number of time and love the food--except for this time. My all time favorite is the mushroom crusted pork chop cooked medium well. Unfortunately, this time it was very over cooked. The waiter was apologetic and asked if I wanted to return it for another. I declined. I NEVER return food at any restaurant when its not satisfactory. People are so unstable now and I don't take chances with anyone who might be upset because you feel food wasn't prepared correctly. The waiter we had was exceptional though. And so very, very pleasant. (He wasn't the person that delivered our meals though).

Everything else I ate was spot on though. So I'll assume it was an off day. But it is a great restaurant.

All of our steaks were prepared very poorly

One guest ordered petit filet- medium , they steak was completely grey inside, no sign of pink

Second guest ordered petit filet medium rare- one half was well the other side was medium rare at best as it was overcooked

Third guest had the 3 crusted filet, all were to be medium. First was charred on both sides, raw in middle. Second was medium rare but closer to rare and the first piece. Last was over well

Whomever was working the grill Sunday had no idea what they were doing

The fish was good

Fantastic food and service as always!!! Wine selection is very good. Other than having a "Wildfire" wine brand, gives Coopers a run for the money!!

We were 15 minutes late for our table for 6. I called and they held our table.
The service was very good. Our server was very patient with us. Everyone was busy talking instead of making dining decisions.
She explained the menu to us because there was a family style option that was a little confusing.
Four of us ordered Fillet Mignon, two ordered Park Chops. The fillets came medium well and well done vs. medium rare as ordered. The server immediately ordered new steaks. The chops and side orders of spinach and mashed potatoes were fine. The service of water and drink refills were well attended. The desserts were Key Lime pie and Chocolate cake that were superb.
The price for two including drinks was $99. I would say that the price was quite reasonable.
We highly recommend Wildfire for a group. We also recommend it for a date. My wife and I have dined in the bar area several times. The bar is a bit more noisy but that’s to be expected.
The other nice feature of the Wildfire restaurant is that it’s a Lettuce Entertain You establishment.
Give it a try. You’ll love it.
Be sure to make a reservation.

We were seated almost immediately and were served by the charming, informative Jennifer. We sat in a room we had never been seated before, the back area which was wonderful, a lot quieter. The attention was appropriate, not invasive nor dismissive. Loved our meal as we knew we would and will be back again.

Our server was very informed about the selection. Although we dined on a busy Saturday night, we did not have to wait long to be seated. The restaurant acknowledged that we booked this place for our anniversary online and they gave us a nice surprise dessert without us even saying anything. We will always come back to Wildfire in Oak Brook!

I decided to celebrate my 25th birthday by having dinner at Wildfire Oak Brook. It was the correct decision. Everything from my table to the food was excellent. Our server Venus, along with Jason, did an impeccable job in creating a memorable experience for my grandmother and myself. It will be a special evening we will never forget. Five out of five stars!

I have always loved the wildfire. It can be a little pricey though. I’ll be back because I can’t help myself lol. It’s a great place for family and friends.

Average at best. Unfortunately for this restaurant, we ate at Ditkas a month before dining here. This place doesn’t come close to Ditkas. Ditkas is the bomb. One of the best meals my wife and I ever had.
I ordered the bone-in filet. Asked for it, med-rare plus. I know that’s a special type of request. It just means, med rare, the the outside of the steak a little more seared than normal. A better crust. It came burnt on half of it, and under cooked throughout.
The side was an au gratin potato. Bland, and poor presentation. I just expected more here for this type of upper scaled steakhouse.
Won’t go back.

Had dinner here Thursday with some friends from Germany. We thought all of the food was delicious, a soup did come out cold but the bus boy/waiter delivering food was more than happy to bring a fresh hot bowl. Our server Jaynbe was a little slow with service as we waited at our table for about 10 minutes before she came to greet us. It also was extremely loud that evening and somewhat difficult to carry on a conbervsation, but all in all it was a yummy dinner and we will all be back.

The food was amazing ! Steaks came out exactly as we ordered them which does not happen with every restaurant. Have been going to Wildfire for many years and it never disappoints. Can't wait to go back !

Really loud and table so close together the chairs were touching. Fish was super salty. Usually love coming here but this experience compared to what we paid left much to be desired:(

A noisy patron at the bar who knew several employees was very loud, making it difficult for me and my wife to have a conversation. Everything at dinner was great.
