Step back in time 60 years to 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 quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

You don't just dine for good food, you are being educated about the history! Our server is just awesome giving us a lot of option and not rushing you to order. I had the 3 steak sampler and hubby ordered their famous halibut! It was really good. Steak was cooked to perfection and the fish is crunchy and tender that... More

We knew nothing of this restaurant other than it was on a full page listing of restaurants handed to us by the hotel. Our experience was nothing less than wonderful in regard to the cuisine, service and pricing. We definitely chose well as both our entrees were excellent (halibut for my wife and chicken for me). The waiter was very... More

Wildfire is another of the locations that we try to frequent at least a few times a year. Their location is gorgeous and has a real old-timey feel, but on busy nights it can get quite crowded. Always make reservations! Otherwise, you'll be in for quite a long wait. It's also an area where parking is at a bit of... More

Are first time here was not very good as my wife ordered boneless chicken and bit into a big rib bone cutting her mouth. They did comp our meal and asked to come back and the second meal was out of this world good. It is a great place to eat during shopping trips to Oakbrook mall, but live nearby... More

While travelling for business, I located this steak house near my hotel. The menu looked great and dinner was on my mind. Upon arrival at 6 pm on a Thursday night, I was greeted at the door by the hostess staff and selected a seat at the beautiful bar. This location has tremendous ambiance due to wonderful lighting and use... More

They have some wonderful steaks here and the ambiance was great too. My steak was cooked perfectly and tasted wonderfully. i was not really happy with the wildfire salad but maybe it just wasn't my thing. Had some pretzels for an appetizer had some great dips. Of course it can get kinda pricey but worth it.
