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.

Fantastic fillet mignon!

Went to Wildfire for father's day dinner. Fillet mignon was perfect, prime rib was okay. They were a little cheap on the bread that we asked for an never received. Drinks were good as usual. Dessert was excellent. Service for this holiday wasn't bad but I've gotten better service here before.

First time to eat at Wildfire. Excellent food and the Coconut Cream Pie was the best we ever had. The waitress was very helpful, and she could not answer a question about a wine pairing, she quickly went and found someone who could help us.

I've been here many times but tonight wildfire outdid themselves. Bone in filet done perfectly, amazingly tender...roasted veggies. After dinner a "real" Americano was just wonderful. Highly recommend, will be back.

Here on business and it was very busy for a Wednesday night. Old fashion good servers. Very attentive. I am not a big meat eater but my colleagues are and said the lamb and petit filet was very good! I had a dinner salad with salmon which was plenty big and good. They even managed to talk us into desert!

Have been here several times with my boyfriend and we have fallen in love with the place! Wonderful atmosphere! Great mix of clientele from families to business, casual to dressy. The restaurant is a must do when frequenting the area. The food is magnificent. And you can't forget to try a dessert from their selection, or do the wine tasting!... More

This is our favorite restaurant. We have dinner here at least once a month. The menu always prompts me to try something different, and my wife usually selects her favorite, prime rib. We are always greeted warmly by the hostess and are seated promptly. The food is very good and the wine selection excellent. Service is great and prices are... More

Food wasn't bad. However, our server completely ruined our dinner. Basic instructions for billing- she messed it up. Food came out of the kitchen incorrectly. Had to ask for bread. Refused to take our order when prompted. Empty water constantly. Waited 14 minutes for her to prepare our bill. Will never recommend or return. Terrible experience. Waitress was Joann.

This was a special anniversary for us and we wanted a special dining experience. My parents gave gift cards for Christmas and there were many choose from. We have eaten at their location at OakBrook but decided to try this one. We were both very pleased with the service and the choices of entrees. And a special dessert was delicious.... More

The place was packed but, with our reservation we were seated immediately. Our appetizers were great. Our entrees were great. Our desserts were unique and delicious. Steaks cooked to order with Parmesan crusted Lobster tails were the stars of the evening!

This is a favorite local restaurant. Make sure that you make reservations as they are always busy. You really cant go wrong ordering anything on the menu. They have something for everyone in all price ranges.
