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.

I enjoy eating lunch or dinner here. The lamb chops are always my favorite. It's always busy at the OakBrook location. The restaurant is lively & noisy, but overall a good time.

Let's see, where do I begin.. My husband and I take a long drive from Plainfield every once in awhile just to go to Wildfire. Why? Drinks are fabulous, Steaks are fabulous, Service is fabulous! Usually...Until last weekend. Our meal started off with a 45 min wait, with a reservation. That's okay, usually worth the wait. They sit us in... More

Ate here with my wife and another couple on a Thursday night. Place was very busy. It has a traditional but trendy steak-house decor and a large bar. My lamb chops were among the best I've ever had and the roast vegetables, Mac n cheese, mushroom caps were very good. I especially liked their warm pumpernickel bread. Although our server... More

We dined at Wildfire with several of our executives from Hong Kong. The restaurant offered a nice variety of food and everyone seemed very happy with their food. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very busy when we were there, but that's always a good sign! I definitely will return!

Once our food arrives looks and smells great, as I cut into my order it is... More

I had an early dinner at Wildfire this past week and I have to say I sometimes get concerned when you get to a restaurant too early, however, there were no worries once the food started arriving. From the bread that started the meal to my outstanding ribeye steak, everything exceeded my expectations. The waiter did a nice job giving... More

We went here on a Thursday night just my husband and I. We made reservations prior and we were seated right away. We were given what seemed like an hour to look over the menu before our waiter decided to show up. If it wasn't for our anniversary and being on the late side we would of walked right out... More

We were four for dinner. One person needed a gluten free meal. A nice touch: a board with gluten free bread was served along with the board of the usual breads. The shrimp and crab bisque was delicious, however, the French onion soup was too sweet (addition of sugar in stead of slow caramelizing of the onions?) and the cheese... More
