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.

“Loud, but good food”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Ate here with a business group. It was a Saturday night and the place was packed. The service was good. I had the french onion soup, followed by a filet. The steak was good. I had the potatoes for a side, I didn't care for the flavors and I thought they were runny for scalloped potatoes. It was very loud in there, hard to carry on a conversation with my group. Probably wouldn't be returning because of this.

“Excellent restaurant I can always count on”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Come to the Oakbrook area about once a year on business. Have now made Wildfire an annual event. Food is consistently good as is the service. Lot's of menu options for everyone in the party. Restaurant has been packed every time I have visited so reservations are a really good idea. Love the chopped salad and the toppings really add to the steaks. Let the calorie count go for a night and double down on exercise the next day. If you are in the area Wildfire is a must.

“People rave about this place but.......”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

People rave about this place but I find it just acceptable. It is impossible to get a res and the wait time is crazy. Their steaks are great though! I find their fish boring but fresh, I'm a fish eater and never eat red meat. My daughter and son-in-law are huge steak eaters and love Wildfire, but when I took them to Reel Club, my fav, they loved their steaks too and loved their fish! I find service is very good at both restaurants and pricing the same. BUT I will say the mussels I had at Wildfire were huge and AWEFUL while the ones at the Reel club were AWESOME!

“Good Food. Good Service. An old standby that still delivers”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

It's 6PM on a Friday and the place is packed! It's been here for at least 20 years and it's still packed! With so many dining options in the area, it's hard to believe, actually. But the food is good - even if not that creatively inspired; they have a separate gluten-free menu and they make a mean martini. We sat in the bar area - very hectic - but the service was still attentive.

“Very good dinner with reasonable price--very busy”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

This place was packed every night at 6 PM with a 20 minute wait but finally got to dine there on Tuesday night. Prompt attention with a server that knew the menu and the wine list. Great recommendations and enjoyed a macadamia crusted halibut and a wonderful glass of wine. Sat next to the Rascals Room and although busy it did not detract from the meal.
