Foodie Review: WildFire Oakbrook


My visit to Wildfire at Oakbrook Center Mall was fabulous! It was time for my mother’s 70th birthday surprise party. I started the planning in late December. The event planners were great. My party had 23 guests and we used the Savoy room. The event planners answered all of my questions, and I had plenty. As questions came up, I was able to message them and I would receive an answer almost immediately, and on the weekends, I only had to wait 30 mins to an hour tops!

With the event planning service, they had a portal where the documents, contracts, payment deposit, and online discussion were maintained. This helped streamline a lot of the tasks.

The event was on a Sunday in April at 11am – 3pm. I knew how crazy parking can be at Oakbrook Center Mall, so I got there at 10:15, and I informed all my guests to promptly arrive at 11am; plus they needed to get there before my mom.

For all the late arrivals, they had to deal with the parking issues, but that was on them, not me!

Also a lot of the guests were seniors with previous knee, hip and back surgeries – so I informed them not to park where the restaurants are, but behind the Neiman Marcus. Otherwise, they would have to climb a lot of stairs! That was the best accessible option. I wish there was an elevator available through the Beatrix restaurant; but oh well!

When I arrived early, I was able to add my decorations and wait for my guests and mom to arrive.

The host was fabulous – super duper attentive, and also provided options for those guests who had food allergies.

Since I was in charge of the food planning, everything was delicious. We had Grilled Pepperoni Flatbread, Mediterranean Chicken Skewers, Spit-Roasted Herb Chicken, Barbecued Baby Back Ribs, Cedar-Planked Salmon, Red Skin Mashed Potatoes, and Roasted Market Vegetables. All of that for $36.95 per person (price at the time of my contract) with a minimum of $800 wasn’t bad at all!!
