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.

Very Nice Dinner Date

It's Oakbrook, so we drove around in circles for a while, gave up and used the valet parking. Since it's Oakbrook, it's also like a rat maze. So, Wildfire is around the corner, up the stairs, and around the other corner. *eyeroll* The place was packed. Our reservations were for 8:30 pm, and... read more

Wildfire has lots of food and drink choices and the food is usually excellent. Typically have gone there for lunch; they have really great large salads and luncheon specials. We were close to the bar, which can be a bit loud. So if you want to be able to hear each other talk, ask for a table away from the... More

I come here every once in a while for a really good salad (their Wildfire one). We even buy the dressing that they sell because it's so good. always a safe bet for dinner

Always make a reservation on open table. No matter what day it is it will be packed. The Parmesan crusted cod was awesome. Great service.

Had a great family meal, but the service was not great. We had empty plates piling up on our table and it did not seem like the waitress wanted to get rid of them. At one point I had to ask her to take the plates for us.

I got the burgers with melted cheese in the centre. It was so good that I would definitely recommend going just for that. The atmosphere is great for either a couple or a large family with a rather posh yet family-friendly feel to it all. Staff were also very helpful and attentive!

Each frie except for a few were black and hard but the other fries were mushy and not baked... More

Atmosphere is very warm and comfortable. They have top notch servers who are very attentive. We were a party of four and made reservations on a Saturday for lunch. We were extremely happy that they take reservations for small parties, for there was a line waiting for tables when we got there. Our table was ready immediately and we were... More

I really liked this restaurant's menu, it was hard to decide but I went with the braised short ribs in a wine sauce with grilled al dente fresh vegetables. It was so good I practically licked the rest of the sauce from the plate! The service was a bit lackadaisical (we had a waitress that seemed new to the game).... More
