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.

Given the current government orders, it seems Wildfire is doing the absolute best they can in being able to still provide service to their customers. Wildfire is one of our favorite places to visit, and the seating outside on their heated patio setup was just right for the weather. Service was very quick, and our server was great and accommodating. Kudos to the Wildfire Oakbrook team for adjusting in the face of adversity! We will definitely be back soon :-)

Always a pleasure being there even if we could not dine inside like we normally do. They did a great job with the patio and socially distancing.

We sat outside for my birthday dinner. It was extremely nice and they gave me a complimentary flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Thank you so much for that.

We were seated near the kitchen so there were lot of people walking back and forth. Not the best ambiance when you’re trying to celebrate anniversary which was stated during the reservation process. The food was average at best. My steak was overly salty and lot of “water and juices “ on the plate. Some side items were no longer on the menu which was a huge disappointment. Also, it was never mentioned that Wildfire now adds a “COVID” charge to the bill. While 4% is not a huge amount, it feels as if the restaurant tries to sneak it in, until you read the fine print. Wildfire is my and wife’s “go to” restaurant for good meal and a great stake. The Oak Brook location did not meet our expectations.

Waiter was exceptional—helpful and attentive. The ribeye was very good and halibut was also good. The cherry pie and apple crumb pie were delicious. Wildfire has always been one of our favorites.

My husband and I decided to have our Anniversary dinner at Wildfire Oakbrook. Overall we enjoyed our experience, the service was excellent and the meal was good despite my steak being overcooked. My medium well filet was closer to well done. They insist on a butterfly preparation when you order Med Well or Well Done for your steak temperature. I'll know better next time.

The food was as good as always at this Wildfire. The service was good until the end when we had to wait for 15 minutes for our check after finishing dessert. The reason for the 3 stars is that the social distancing was inadequate. We (5 people) were about 4-5 feet from two large gatherings (about 10 people each). We'll return when the pandemic is over.

Have enjoyed coming here for years. This was the first visit during Covid. High marks for safety protocols followed. Things were great for the most part with the exception of the quality of the steaks we ordered. I ordered the Porterhouse and my wife had the Ribeye. Both steaks were much smaller and thinner than we've had in the past. The flavor was just so-so and definitely not on par. This was disappointing as we were celebrating our Anniversary. Overall, we thought both steaks were poor compared to the quality we're use to from Wildfire.

Although the rest of the experience was top notch, we will probably consider other options to dine as this just doesn't cut it anymore. Especially for the prices charged.

I’ve been wanting to come here for so long and finally had the chance to go and celebrate my mom’s birthday. The hostess didn’t seem to care that it was a birthday celebration even though we noted it on the reservation, so we weren’t able to embarrass our mom during dinner. Other than that the food was excellent and came out without any issues. It was way more for one person for each dish so we had plenty of leftovers to take home. I would come back but maybe at a different location.

I go to Wildfire for all the special occasions in my life, it happens to be my boyfriend's favorite restaurant. We held our reservations for two weeks until the day finally came. We travel an hour and a half for their crusted filets and chopped salad, so we were awfully hungry. We arrive and were sat immediately but not in the main dining room like expected, they lead us to the spare room where 5 tables are set up. I was uncomfortable but I didn't mind all that much until we were greeted by our waiter. He never said his name and each time he would come by ( the whole 3 times he came to the table throughout our stay) he would talk and walk. He took our drink order but then immediately walked away before I can spit out that we wanted an appetizer. He would go to his other tables but then not check on us when we needed a drink refill. We finally got our food and he did not check on us until it was time to bring me a togo box. My boyfriend received bacon on his steak that he didn't order and we thought he might have gotten the wrong plate but the waitor was no where to be found to ask. I boxed up my food and proceeded to wait 23 minutes until the watior brought the check. It was a terrible experience, i wanted to leave the minute we sat down away from the ambiance of the restaurant and far away from the other staff. I would have been happy to ask another waitor or watiress for a drink refill or questions about our meals.

I am an fan of Wildfire but this night the food was such poor quality. Nothing was hot each item including my baked potatoe was cold. It was such a bad experience especially to spend nearly $300 on a meal that none of use enjoyed. I feel like I wasted my money. And when we informs the waiter he apologized but was so dismissive. I understand things are roughly right now but again to spend my money I’m not sure when it will be at Wildfire anytime soon

The food was good but I was disappointed with the limited menu. We have been frequent diners here and expected the same food options. Starting with the bread, they only had Cold corn bread. Terrible. The throw away menu was understandable right now but the print was so small not even reading glasses helped.
The steak was perfect.

We went there for our son’s birthday, the T bone steaks were very good. All of them cooked as we requested. They had a nice char with a perfectly medium rare center. The sides were good, they brought out of some warm corn bread Instead of dinner rolls. Overall it was a very nice experience for our family. I would definitely return to have a T-bone steak. The service was excellent.

Had dinner in the bar area of Wildfire the other night. Everything about it was great. Our server Anthony did a great job - the perfect balance of attentiveness but not intrusive. I really enjoyed my coconut shrimp and creamed spinach, but the crusted halibut - and scalloped potatoes - were so spectacular, we'll definitely come back!

Our experience at Wildfire Oak Brook was very good. Tables were a comfortable distance apart, but the vibe was still energetic. Everyone wore their masks. The food was delish (portions were huge) and our server was extremely attentive.
