Overall decent. Thanksgiving holiday menu was decent but could have been fresher food presented. Drinks and bare tender Michelle made the evening purely enjoyable with her amazing energy and attention to crafting enjoyable drinks.

We live in California but Wildfire is our first stop after landing in Chicago OHare.
The food is normally perfectly prepared,
But this time we received the wrong/ incorrect steaks and one was over done.
Service was okay, but we are used to exceptional service at this restaurant.
All past dinners went well.
This one was an exception.

Food was good but a little overdone. I asked for the steak Medium rare & it was medium at best. Grilled shrimp pairing was also over cooked & as a result a little dry. Salad & sides were excellent.

Making Reservations are a definite plus. We thought early dinner at 4:00 would be less crowded than a later hour but the place filled in. Tables seemed to be packed in very tightly. We had to squeeze a fifth at our table for four. Fellow patrons were very friendly by repositioning themselves to allow our fifth to have some elbow room. Our waitress was very friendly but seemed overwhelmed at times. Our birthday gal ordered a ribeye and initially got a rib roast.
Two people ordered hamburgers and picked potato dishes as their sides because the menu didn't list that french fries were included in their platter.

The martini flight was our highlight of the night.

I am not a lover of scallops but decided to try the oven-roasted seafood platter. The uncooked appearance of the bacon on the scallops dissuaded me from even trying them. The serving portions on the platter were also disappointingly small but the taste of the salmon, crab cake and 2 coconut shrimp were excellent.

I will wait until after the holidays before coming back again. We did appreciate the atmosphere and not feeling like we were being rushed out to clear space for additional customers. We spent almost 3 hours catching up on each others life. I will probably be back on a Saturday while shopping at the mall.

Wonderful lunch, food was very good. Our Waiter Anthony was outstanding, he was the best waiter we have ever had at Wildfire. He was always there to see if we needed anything, but wasn’t smothering you. He knew when to swing by. Best of all he got my wife a baked potato a little before that served dinner. That’s what really made it!

Food was awesome! I was super disappointed that we were crammed in a side room next to a large party. It took everything in me to “deal with it.” I think more of a conscious effort should be made to not cram small tables near large parties. My husband kept needing to lean forward so people could get by. The waitress apologized as we left, but that would have a been a good point for management to step in.

The last several times I have been at the restaurant - I don't feel like the women's restroom was very clean. I was there three weeks ago, walked in within 10 minutes of their opening to have lunch. I first used the restroom and it was very obvious to me it hadn't even been cleaned from the night before, which was a Saturday night.

Needs much improvement! This is probably my favorite restaurant so it pains me to put a bad mark in but it needs to be said. Thank you -

A terrific steak house! We were served simple dishes done perfectly. We had a tomato bisque to start, which really took the chill off for us! My wife had a wood fired pizza and she loved it. I ordered a bone in rib eye and it was silky smooth and really tasty. I had a Fall special roasted squash with maple and walnuts and it was amazing. We shared a side of mashed potatoes, again terrific. I had a draft lager which was was a special to the menu, and I wish I could remember it's name, but it was crazy refreshing and perfect for a steak dinner. Wildfire is a special place and I cannot wait to go back.

We love this place, they changed the cherry glazed duck. It is good but old version was breathtaking. Pricy but a Lettuce restaurant is always going to cost. Enjoyed the evening but were dead set on the duck and it was not as good.

Wildfire was consistently good with great service. This is the second location I visited and was equally happy with my choice. The food is good quality with many menu options. I love the open grill, where you can enjoy the smell of food as well.

Amazing steaks, chops, fillet and prime rib with special crusts. And I loved the chops. Had them the first time. Should have ordered them again. I gave the lower rating for the food I had this time, I ordered the salmon. It was very good but not for the price. I expected it to wow me like the chops did. So it's a five if you get the chops or meat.
Service was outstanding as always. Our table was by the kitchen which would likely be worse on a weekend night. We were there on a Monday and it was loud sitting there but the place is still very nice. Our first visit was better, so I would still recommend it and go back for a meat dinner. Then it seems more worth the cost.
It would also be good for a meet up with friends at the martini bar. I would have wine or beer, so it's not the martini bar itself that attracts me. I like the ambience.

Food was great, Waiter was nice. However, when we sat down my glass was very dirty, still had crust on it. It got exchanged. Ordered a bottle of wine, my wine glass was full of finger prints. I usually dont complain about this but it was really bad. My bill was $150, the least I can get for a nice restaurant is clean dishes.

Our Experience Saturday evening at Wildfire Oakbrook can only be described by the word perfect. We had requested a quiet table through OpenTable and the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. This being our first date I couldn't have asked for anything more and my guest felt the same. It was a memorable evening for both of us made more special by OpenTable and the wonderful staff at Wildfire
