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 quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Had the chance to eat at Wildfire in Oak Brook recently. I loved the Chicago location and was in the area so decided to go for this one as well. Was not disappointed. It's "in" an outdoor mall just off of 88. There's not a ton of parking right at the restaurant so be prepared to valet or walk. The... More

I used to go here a lot. They have really raised their prices & have tried to become more upscale than their food offerings are. The food is good, but not fantastic. Desserts are enormous. I have had some spotty service on the past few visits. Have been searching for what to order for lunch since the menu revamping before... More

I've dined here a few times over the years, and have decided its just not worth it. Let me preface this by saying, I knew what I was getting into when we agreed to go with friends. So just finally doing a review. This is my experience/opinions. Good luck if you don't have a reservation. Hostess was rude when we... More

I come here frequently. My husbands burger was prepared incorrectly. It was returned only to have the items scraped off and re-plated. Thank God he has no allergies like my daughter. I usually love this place. But this shocked me. I cannot believe the manager was upset at me for being upset. Yes I blew my temper and dropped the... More

I really like the food and service at this restaurant. I had a Filet Mignon done medium with roasted vegetables and Caesar salad. The steak was excellent. The vegetables were good, but only warm, at best. That was a little disappointing but not a big deal. The Caesar salad is really good- fresh and I really like their dressing. It's... More

I have eaten here many, many times-and have always had a predictable experience. food is great, service is exactly as it should be. My meals have ranged from burger to filet and out of 50+ visits, there was only one misfire-the server brought over the manager, the manager addressed it, corrected it-went above and beyond, and we moved on.

We visited Wildfire. Have been there a year before. I think its gotten to big for itself! The Hostess was pleasant, but seated us in a booth designed for a Las Vegas show that was in the main food service aisle. Told no other table ready for us. Too much foot traffic and our waiter could not even stand in... More

It's always sad when winter comes and the halibut is no longer available. I look forward to getting my Spring email from the restaurant saying that the halibut has returned. It is prepared with a Macadamia crust and it is to die for. Included with the dish is asparagus and a wonderful butter sauce. And if you time it right,... More

Had calamari and baked goat cheese as an appitizer. Both very good. Trio of filet as main course with different toppings. Steak was cooked perfect! Good atmosphere. Hard to hear conversation in bar but overall nice restaurant.
