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.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner for my now 10 year old who LOVES filet mignon. (Yeah, we're in trouble.) The food was excellent, as was the service. And the birthday dessert that was brought to my child was one of the most decadent things I've ever tried.

The food is always excellent at Wildfire and the service was great. The only negative is that they had recorded my meal as coconut shrimp instead of coho salmon, so I had to wait a bit after the others received their food. When the food did arrive, however, it was delicious and I had enough for leftovers, which were also great. The glasses of wine were very generous, and the apple dessert was amazing.

We had ordered the Chopped Salad and it seemed to have only iceberg lettuce so it really lacked flavor this time around. Flatbreads are fabulous! Our server was so sweet and genuine! Another wonderful Anniversary celebration! Thx

The food and service was fantastic. Due to a number of large parties we had to wait past our reservation time to get in. Understandable but it's always nice to have a reservation honored. I'd still go back regardless. There were a number of menu items that I want to try.

I made a reservation in advance and requested the main dining room. We did not get that room. We were seated in the smaller lower room. We like the food and the service is good.

We have been going to Wildfire for many years now & really do like it there but the last time we were there it was so COLD that I was extremely uncomfortable throughout our dinner. I realize that it is hard during this time of the year to anticipate what the outdoor temperature is going to be & how to adjust indoor temperatures but it was just too, too cold to make eating a pleasant experience. I mentioned this to the person who seated us but I don't think he took me seriously.

And we also miss the crab cakes which used to be on the menu which we absolutely loved & always ordered every time. Now we don't order the crab cakes at all so please consider bringing back the old recipe! Thanks!

It has been a number of years since I frequented a Wildfire restaurant, but I recalled really enjoying the ones I had been to in Lincolnshire area and Chicago. Decided to try Oak Brook’s location and was disappointed. It was congested and a loud family atmosphere which I can handle. Food however was really off. The tuna tartare looked gray and tasted fishy. The waiter noticed we weren’t eating it and offered to take it off the tab when we told him it didn’t taste right. Also had the fish of the day and it honestly tasted like frozen fish sticks. I left 2/3 of it on my plate. For my bday the waiter brought a gluten free chocolate cake - also not tasty - and wished me and my boyfriend a happy anniversary instead of a happy bday. Just bummed especially for the price.

I ordered the shrimp cocktail with a salad. The shrimp was really poor quality. I was surprised, as I’ve dined several times at Wild Fire and always enjoyed the food.

We had a party of 4 and ordered a large dessert to split. Our sever dropped it off with four forks, and ran away too quickly for us to ask for plates and a serving utensil. We had to wait a good ten minutes before we were able to get another server’s attention that we needed plates. No one wants to share off of one plate with no serving utensil or individual plates...

I would have given the ambiance 5 stars except that they sat us in a small back room away from the main dining room. It was as if we were sitting in an enclosed back porch. The tables were crammed in and we were pretty much sitting on top of the next table of six who were very loud. We had to move the table over so that I could get out when it was time to leave. I wasn't very happy with that since I had noted that it was our anniversary.

Our table was located in the walking isle so that was very distracting and my father had to stand up multiple times to allow people to pass by with walkers and such. Our waitress was fine. Not super attentive but still very good. The food was really good but our veggies seemed a bit over done. In general it was a good experience. We would return but we would request different seating.

We were dining with friends from out of town. It was their first dining at Wildfire and they enjoyed it very much. It was also my first time ordering one of your salads. I had the steak salad with apple vinegrette salad dressing and it was Delicious! My friends said when they come back to town we have to meet up at Wildfire again. They really loved the warm cornbread as we all did. Thank you for such a wonderful dining experience.

We stopped after a show at Drury Lane so even though it was early it was very crowded. We felt a bit rushed. But the food is great and the service was still good.

The food was good but my wife and I ordered our food medium-well and it came back well. They took my wife’s back and remade her but I just ate mine. One thing I did noticed while eating my ribeye was that once I got to the middle of my steak it was pretty tough. At that point, I really wish I would have sent mine back :) Other than that, it was a nice outing with my son who had come into town for the holiday weekend.

Love Wildfire. Food is always good. But I am very disappointed that they do not have the dark rye bread with the golden raisins anymore. Have always loved that bread. We use to get a little loaf then they changed that and now it is gone. Maybe I will be gone too. They replaced it with a honey wheat dinner roll. That was awful. Bring back the dark rye with raisin bread.
