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.

“Everything is my favorite here!”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

The aroma of the wood burning oven grabs you when you enter. The quality menu without sticker shock will have you returning. We usually share their chopped salad (best anywhere), have a cup of the shrimp and crab bisque (don't let anyone see you lick the bowl) and if you still have room, something from the grill. Excellent!

“One of my Favorites”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Wildfire always provides an amazing meal. From appetizers to dessert, I have to say one of the best meals in town. (Oak Brook site). Always deliciously prepared meals, steaks are done to perfection every time. Can be very busy and a long wait without a reservation. Food is worth the wait.

“Delectable Prime Rib”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Wildfire has always been one of my favorite local restaurants. Unfortunately, I had a bout with pancreatic cancer that took me out of circulation for awhile. This week, I was back in action and ready for some prime rib. Where else to go but to Wildfire. We ordered the largest cut to share. We ordered it medium rare and it came perfectly pink from edge to edge, demonstrating the benefit of slow cooking. The look activated the taste buds and didn't disappoint. The prime rib is served with a horseradish-flavored sauce that that enhances that flavor, but only used selectively. A great bottle of Sawyer Cellars Cabernet made for a perfect meal. Guess who's going back next month.

“It doesn't get much better than this”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

For a nice fancy dinner out to a delicious steak house, you would go here. Great service with a smile, wonderful music to boot. I recommend reservations if possible because I've never been able to get in sooner than 1 hour after arrival. Come hungry. They give you very generous portions. Their desserts are fantastical! They used to have a fabulous creme brulee, but I guess they discontinued that or it was not available the last 3 times I've been there. But who cares, their steaks are the best! And whoever is working that kitchen really knows what they're doing!

“The BEST steak ever”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Wildfire is where you will have the best steak you ever eat. Salads and sides are also outstanding. The chopped salad is my favorite. Sides are too big for one person and must be shared. If you are not a steak eater, their salmon, swordfish and tuna are all fabulous, also. My only negatives on this place is the noise. It's pretty noisy here, making it difficult for a business dinner or romantic evening.
