A word from Wildfire - Schaumburg
Step back in time 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 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

    I was surprised that even with reservations we had to wait twenty minutes. The food was good, service great but that wait started the dinner off in a bad way. Why make reservations if we still have to wait?

    I was bit underwhelmed. The service was okay and the food was okay. I spent about 130 by myself including tip (my bill was 106 for dinner). For those prices I would expect excellence not just average service and food.

    Always loved Wildfire but was so disappointed in the filet mignon and porterhouse steaks. Service was great and we were not rushed but our steaks were cooked properly but not as good as in the past.

    Pretty much everything I've had on the menu is good. This place is a little pricey for a normal Friday night dinner, but it would be good for a special occasion or once in a while with some close friends.

    Overall experience was OK. We had a reservation only to be given a pager once all of our party arrived followed by a 15 minute wait. So we were sat down about 25 minutes after our reservation time (one of our party members was 10 minutes late). On top of that table location was poor for a reservation. Near the entrance on the edge of the restaurant. Waitress was excellent although late to come to the table (after that attentive and present). Food was good but overpriced for the quality given. I had a porter house. Filet portion was good. New York Strip portion was OK. Roasted vegetables were fair at best. I think I'd either get a cheaper steak at a better value or pay more for a great steak.

    The entire experience made for a memorable night. No problems with the online reservation and we we seated right away. As we were walking to our table we spotted a booth that was being cleared. We requested to be seated there and were accommodated immediately after the clearing was finished. The waitress was attentive and made fantastic recommendations. The food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and cannot wait to return. This will definitely become a "go to dining experience" which we would recommend to friends without any hesitation. If you are looking for a fabulous dining experience, this is the place

    My husband and I came for our 7 year anniversary, food was great, our server took the time to explain things as needed. When our diner was completed, unexpected to us, we were brought out a dessert in celebration of our anniversary. Totally unexpected, and suprised, definitely a much improved experience from the last time I was here. Thanks to Mandy our server.

    Food was excellent as always, portions are a little too generous. Noise level is always an issue when it's busy, and large parties are oddly seated with next to small parties which ramps up the noise level. Service was average - server reasonable about refilling purchased drinks but lax on refilling water which one member of our party was drinking. Still the halibut is killer!

    My girlfriend and I are Wildfire regulars. This occasion was the 2 year anniversary of our first date. We specifically requested the same waiter (Mike Mc). He's great! Entertaining without being overbearing! Always very knowledgeable about the food & drink. For drinks, the apple martini & the Hess wine! Bacon-wrapped scallops to start ("bacon is the candy of meats") For dinner, went surf & turf specials. The in-season halibut & the peppercorn/pomegranate ny steak. Dessert pumpkin pie a la mode...Everything was TOP NOTCH!! Cannot wait to go back!

    it is been awhile since I've dined at wildfire and I was really looking forward to another great experience, but I was disappointed. we arrived early and went into the bar to relax before dinner. We were surprised to see a minor seated at the bar. Our table was ready 30 minutes after our reservation time. our waiter was very good but brought the main course before we were finished with our salad. I ordered my steak Pittsburgh but it was black and blue. I asked that it be cooked some more but when it came back and was still under done to my liking. After shelling out 180 dollars I was a little bit disappointed!
