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.

Every time we have gone there the food has always been great. My wife always gets the scallops and I enjoy trying other dishes. A lot of variety in appetizers, salads, and sides. Service is always excellent. Staff is very courteous and helpful. The atmosphere is nice and it has never been very noisy when we are there so we can actually carry on a conversation while we eat.

My friend ordered a filet mignon which was over cooked the first time and she sent it back and the second one had a lot of fat in it. This is the first time we experienced this after several visits. Actually this is my favorite restaurant.

Always an excellent experience at Wildfire Oak Brook. Several gluten-free options in a dedicated menu. They even bring GF bread to the table for those who can't partake of the usual bread basket. Besides that, the food is excellent.

Service was very slow, we had to wait for our server for 10 minutes and in between ordering the appetizers and main course, we waited a very long time. Also we were placed at a table in a awkward location and everyone walking past kept bumping into our seats. I did request a oversized booth. We spent a large amount of money and we were not very impressed with the service. When I received my meal it was cold and my steak was cooked incorrectly. After such a long wait I just said forget it.

Our server was exceptional. I tried the roast duck and it fell short but not horrible. It was pretty noisy so it was difficult to hear other guests at our table. Service staff kept things moving.

We had a late dinner here then other night. We ordered the crispy buttermilk fried chicken sandwich which was very good. The portions were plentiful and the sides of Cole slaw and French fries were good. We also had a caesar salad but it was not good at all. The salad was over dressed even though we asked for dressing on the side. The dressing didn't taste anything like a caesar dressing. For dessert we had the ice cream sundae only because the waiter let us know we could order a half portion. That was a good suggestion on his part - otherwise we would have skipped it.

This has been my special occasion dining place for many years--birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Over the past 18 months or so, the quality of the food and the staff has gone downhill substantially. During my most recent visit this past week, I noted in my Open Table reservation that I'd like to be seated at a quieter table away from the kitchen . The restaurant was no more than 50% full, there were many open tables. Where did the hostess attempt to seat me? At the entry to the kitchen. I ordered a bowl of shrimp and lobster bisque. No shrimp or lobster could be found...instead, the soup was loaded with corn--I suspect I actually received a bowl of corn chowder. I ordered the filet trio--medium. The steak was overcooked, tough, and flavorless. I noted on the reservation my wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary. No mention of that fact from the waiter, who did not speak English exceptionally well. In the past, the event we were celebrating was always mentioned by the wait staff, and were were almost always provided a complementary dessert or something else that made the dining experience even more special. Service was generally acceptable, but the waiter was not friendly and we felt rushed. I will not be returning to this restaurant any time soon, there are too many superior options at a similar price point.

We all enjoyed our dinners. I did something different and asked for the end cut prime rib. It was dry so I will go back to medium rare. My brother in law asked for the loaded baked potato. He wasn’t happy not enough added on. So our waiter comped him which was so appreciated. The corn bread and creamed spinach was excellent. Had a birthday and was surprised with a cupcake in lava sauce and ice cream. Drinks excellent. Wildfire one of our favorites.

First time for my lovely wife to be. I brought her to Wildfire for her 50th birthday. She was very pleasantly surprised at the location and the menu selection. She raved that the steak melted in her mouth and was completely satisfied with the ambiance of the location. I will keep Wildfire in mind for other outings and special occasions.

I frequent Wildfire about four times a year. This was by far the worst service and food. Ask for medium well steaks, basically raw inside. Lost order, twice. Waiter seemed in a constant hurry, always looking away when we talked with him. Appetizers were good, salad was great, sides were ok, but the steak was awful. Waiting for drink refills for 20min, and had to ask our waiter three times. Waiter just seemed to have something on his mind. We've had plenty of great meals there, wont let one time ruin it, but was just disappointed this time.

Heard a lot of good things about Wildfire and wanted to give it a try. I got the petite filet and it was a bit dry. The price was reasonable, but I was somewhat disappointed in the steak. I’m willing to give it another shot based on its reputation. My wife had and burger and fries. No complaints from her.

The ribs were too dry, by the time they served the replacement, all of us were done eating. The size of the salmon seemed smaller than before.
