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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We arrived right on time and the place was packed. The hostess reminded us that we requested a "quiet" table for 4. We were seated at a table for 4 in a quiet corner. Perfect for visiting with friends. Food was prepared well and served at our pace, not theirs. All in all, we had a lovely evening, didn't break the budget or the diet, and we'll go back."

  • "It was not as great an experience as usual. First, they seated a different couple incorrectly ahead of us. Service was OK, food good but not great, steak very good as was the chicken, salad not as good as before"

  • "Waitress was excellent, booth was in great location. Only problem was could get my filet right! 1st waitress noticed wrong topping on steak, then as always afraid when send it back, came back well done, but right topping. Managers came buy and offered new steak! so waited mean while Girlfriend was done. Got it 3rd time and pretty rare, took a few end bites packed up and went home. The waitress tried and managers tried, even comped the food. But that is what I go for the food! Will have to find new steak house, what a shame cooks can't make a medium steak!"

  • "My wife & I have been to Wildfire many times before. It's been about a year since I was last here so we decided to head back on a Friday night. Then came dinner...our server didn't come up to us for probably 15 minutes. Took another 10 to get our drinks. I kept seeing him all over the restaurant. I don't understand where his section was. The food finally came out and I had told the server I wanted potatoes instead of fries and of course I got fries. My wife wanted red pepper flakes for her pizza, those never came. I don't think I would ever come back here."

  • "Love the Wildfire. I had a good friend come in from Florida and wanted to take her to somewhere special. Wildfire is the place. I asked to sit in the bar area at one of the high-top tables, and we were accommodated. Love it for showers (I had my daughter's baby shower at the location in Glenview) and everyone raved about it. Keep it up Wildfire. "You have a friend in me"."

  • "Just took my wife to Wild Fire for our Anniversary. Used Open Table to make the reservation. Also use the option to arrange for fresh flowers delivered to the table (through open table) and they were great! At the table when we were seated, made for a great surprise for my wife. Also, put in comments on the reservation that I would like a call from Wild Fire to discuss Champain waiting at the table when we were seated...They followed through perfectly. Well Done by Wild Fire. I will use Open Table again for sure and I will also be dinning at Wild Fire again. Great Food and a reasonable price."

  • "I've dined here several times over the course of many years but the food has gone downhill over the course of several years. The place was so loud I felt I had to shout to here the people seated in my group. It's unlikely I will return. There are better places out there."

  • "Wildfire provides a consistently good meal. We come for the ambiance (upholstered banquets, Rat Pack feel, martinis) with the added bonus of a good steak. Always a nice choice for a birthday dinner or a business dinner."

  • "Food & Service were top notch!!! The filet Mignon melted in our mouths."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food and the service was excellent, but the one thing I don't like about this place is the noise level. There was a group of men in one corner of the room that was so loud we could not hear the conversation among the five of us at our round table."

  • "Once again, Wildfire did not disappoint. It's my very favorite restaurant. Although pricey, it's a treat to have dinner here. The table service is impeccable and the food is extraordinary. I also enjoyed a martini at the bar and it was excellent, as was the service. It was my birthday celebration, and it felt like an extra-special day. I'm soon moving to the Denver area and will miss this great restaurant very much."

  • "Since it is summer, I like to salads for lunch. The Waldorf salad was great. My friend had the chopped salad that she just loved, The menu was extensive. The wine flights look good. Next time I am there for dinner, I plan to enjoy a flight."

  • "Wildfire in Schaumburg Illinois was really a treat! With a reservation, we were seated immediately. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive and answered our questions patiently. Our entrees arrived quickly and were cooked to perfection--medium rare petite fillet (me) and pork chops (my husband). Sides, sauces, and cocktails were exceptional. It was a delicious & lovely experience. My only regret is that there is not a Wildfire restaurant closer to where we live."

  • "We had a party of 7 on a Saturday night, and without even asking, they gave us a private room! Everything-- food, service, atmosphere was excellent! This was a family get together with one member out of town. Your restaurant made it a very special evening for us! Jaime, our waiter, was simply outstanding!"

  • "Party of 8, and they gave us our own room off the bar. No bar noise came in, though we're pretty sure some of ours went out. Service was attentive, and 5 separate checks were done without issue and with complete accuracy. Server was knowledgeable on the entire menu and bar offerings. Dishes sampled included the Shrimp/Crab bisque (Excellent); house salads and Dinner salad (well portioned); Prime Rib (Excellent); Filet Medallion Trio (Excellent); Sockeye Salmon (Excellent); Half rack of ribs (Excellent). Sides included the roasted veggies, which we felt were overdone; and the cole slaw and applesauce, which were OK. The desserts were very well received, with the sorbet trio, key lime pie and peanut butter/chocolate offerings the highlights."

  • "Caesar salad normally great, this time lacked enough dressing, waitress never came back to ask how it was. Dinner were delivered, but the salad plates and salad bowl was not pick up, leaving the table very crowded. Had to have someone else take away the dishes. Normally we get good service here but this time it was lacking. The dinners were very good as usual. We will still come back again."

  • "Had filet and porterhouse steaks. First porterhouse overcooked. Sent back, but did not wait long for a properly cooked steak. Filet was ok. Waitress was slow. She was older and probably couldn't move too well."

  • "We've dined here before and usually love it. We even had our rehearsal dinner here before our wedding several years ago at another location. The food is always good. This night my beet and goat cheese salad had about 3 pieces of beet and no goat cheese until I asked for it. All other food was delicious. I had the filet tenderloins and my wife had the coconut shrimp. The real disappointment was watching all the other tables get great service as we had a server who didn't care about the experience at all. Big disappointment as we were celebrating a birthday."

  • "Our 20th wedding anniversary. Great place, great menu, great service, great wine, great.ambience. However, we were GRAVELY disappointed by the "Walmart-esque" clients and their spawn. Too many t-shirts, shorts, kids, screaming, none of which could.appreciate the quality and workmanship that went into the 5 and 6 course wonders they were cramming into their gullets. I loved the staff and the food. I hated the patrons and was saddened for the staff."

  • "Food and service is always good! About 15 minute wait 4 table, but it was 7:00 pm on a Friday. Our mid rare prime ribs sat at the pass 2 long. The runner dropped them off. A passing server noted our facial expressions and promised replacements "in 2 minutes". The floor manager made good on the promise, delivering perfect meats within the 2 minutes. A great recovery but the QC at the pass should b improved."

  • "We ordered filet mignon and it was good but not exceptional. The stark could have been seasoned better but was well cooked and tender. Two in our party wanted their steaks medium well and they butterfly them here. The steaks came well done and a little dry. Other steak houses seem to be able to nail a medium well steak without butterflying it. Did get a ceased salad and the aught atom potatoes and both were very food. Overall good experience just not great."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Our food was delicious and service was wonderful. However, the prices have gone up so much we probably won't be able to enjoy Wildfire anymore. We are now retired and can't sell our home. The future is looking pretty grim. We love a great dinner but 36.95 for an entrée and the salad extra is tough."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "With reservations we were seated immediately with a friendly greeting by the hostess and waitress. Warm bread followed with drinks and enough time to make our dinner selection. Can't beat their chopped salad and have not found a better place for steaks. Don['t know how we did it but managed to find room for the deserts. Stuffed to say the least. Its the top of our list for places to dine."

  • "Went here because I had heard good things. Set up like a 1940 steakhouse/dinner club, the ambiance was good. If you get seated in main section you can see the open kitchen. They also have a wood burning oven. We started with their martini flight. I now have a new favorite...stormy night, yum! Service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive (without hovering). We had a filet with mashed red potatoes, and the 16oz. prime rib with scalloped potatoes. Both were very good. Bread is served at the table, so we had no appetizer. There were two kinds...a onion loaf and a dark bread that had golden raisins in it. We liked both, but the dark with raisins was fantastic. Desserts looked yummy, but we had no more room. We will definitely be going back!"

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "For me the restaraunt experience starts with service. How soon are you greeted by your server? How soon are you asked about a beverage selection? I expect these things very soon after I have sat down, even when busy (not the case on this visit). Just stop by and say "I'm your server", when busy and "I'll be right with you". I know busy, and I get that, but introduce yourself to acknowledge that you are my server and know I'm there. I had to flag someone down after waiting quite a while. Not good. Service evened out after that and during the meal, but too late to rate this a good experience. Food good, choices good, etc, but come back, ah, not sure."
