Description: 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.

I dine at Wildfire Oak Brook and Chicago with regularity due to the service and great food. They recently added a 16 oz aged strip steak that is marvelous. You either really enjoy dry aged steaks or you don't. If you do the price at Wildfire is very reasonable and the meat is exceptional. The Parmesan crusted cod is also wonderful!

Had lunch here to save some $ as the dinner menu is quite expensive, and the decision was a great one. The place is quite large, but seems intimate because of the dark wood, open kitchen and good space between tables/booths. The service was impeccable, and the food was fantastic. Ordered the filet medallion duo, and the steaks were melt-in-your-mouth. You get a choice of four crusts - the horseradish was very flavorful, and the bearnaise was mild. You have a choice of several sides, including veggies and several potato options, all for $24. Keep in mind that on the dinner menu, just one petite filet if $27, so lunch is the way to go to get the most for your $. It is a popular restaurant, so you may want to make a reservation.

main room is wonderful with the smell of a large blazing fire cooking the food. The exterior rooms lack the charm of the main room.

One of thee best steaks I ever had, the food was awesome. I had the horseradish crusted filet, which was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was great, nice and laid back. Looking forward to going back when I visit Chicago again.
