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.

We arrived on a Saturday nite using an OpenTable reservation for 5:30 PM. We were seated immediately while many other patrons were standing around. They will not seat you until all guests have arrived. With our small party of 4, nobody exclaimed WOW, what a terrific meal. The prices are very expensive and you can find this same food at... More

My husband and I have been to Wildfire a number of times. It's one of our favorite restaurants because the food and the service are always excellent.

The smells walking into this establishment to not do it justice. Fantastic food! And my son and I were delighted to find they have an extensive gluten-free menu. You have to give it a try!

The food here is great. I especially love there salads. Great atmosphere. But my biggest complaint is that it's almost impossible to get a table here. On any given night you can wait 2 hours for a table.

Most of the time this is a very good place to eat. They are always busy so going without a reservation is a problem. Try to get seated in the main dining area. The side rooms aren't so good.

This restaurant has steaks that are as good as Gibsons, but the atmosphere is less snooty and stodgy. I really enjoy their filet mignon trio. I'd come here over the old-school steak houses any day.

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
