Wildfire - Schaumburg
It's Been a WhileSeveral years since we've eaten at Wildfire. Had a very nice menu selection & food was very good! Bartender did a nice job with the drinks. Service was great!! Glad to see Wildfire takes reservations - makes it easier for customers to plan ahead.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive to detailsMy daughter and I have extreme food intolerances, and our waitress was very attentive to our need for specially prepared food. It came to the table just as we has requested. The quality and flavor of the food was excellent!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always goodWe have tried lots of items on the menu in our diferent visits, any everything has been good.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat optionsThey had a great menu to choose from. They even had a full gluten free menu for my guest.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove WildfireMy wife and I think Wildfire is one of the very best restaurants in the northwest Suburbs6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic STEAKSThere hasn't been one time that we have ever had a bad steak, always...always DELICIOUS!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMust have been a bad dayThis is the second business lunch (suit and tie) held at Wildfire in a 7-day period. We were seated at a table next to a screaming family even though the restaurant was not jammed...it was a late lunch...about 1:30. The server was not polished and not professional. The lettuce in the salad was warm, wilted and plated as if we just went through the drive-thru at McDonald's. Could not get a refill on my water to save my life...
This is a 180 degree different experience than the experience less than a week ago. What's the story?6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThe whole experience was great. I made reservations online which was a VERY easy process. We had an early evening dinner because we were with a toddler and infant and didn't want to be disturbing to the dinner crowd, the table was ready when we arrived and we did NOT have to wait till our whole party was there to be sitted. (I hate that!) Everyone from the hostess to the bus boys were nice and said hi to my daughter, who is in her waving/hi stage. As we were near the end of our meal the restaurant began to fill with its dinner crowd and still no one rushed us to leave. I consider Wildfire to be a more upscale restaurant and would not take my toddler there on a regular basis but appreciate knowing I can and still get great service.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellebt timeWe had a great dinner with drinks and excellent food. can't wait to go back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThey have always accomodatedThey have always accomodated us and we love the place!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SpotFood was excellent. Little loud though.. Family parties all around. Saw some private rooms. Nice Bar.. Plenty of food. Not a cheap dinner, but worth the prices..6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food at a great price.Steaks on par with more expensive restaurants. Great sides and wine list. Lots of romantic booths for seating.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable TimeExcellent food, great dining atmosphere. Wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. It was a little crowded for a Wed. with
quite a bit of congestion upon entering. We were attended to promptly, however. Our table was right by the entrance to the dining room
so there was quite a bit of traffic. Maybe a few too many tables. Very nice place for a special occasion.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfire reviewAlways a wonderful meal, quality food and service. Can't go wrong with dinner at Wildfire!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDepartment LuncheonWe had a group of six ladies here for lunch to welcome a new employee. Our waiter was so wonderful and really had a way of describing the menu items that made us want to order all of them! He recommended the halibut, he raved about it and so I felt I needed to see what the fuss was about, and he was so right, we are still talking about how good it was. I love Wildfire, never have a bad meal there and we often order carryout.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe walked right in....And everything was ready for us. I felt like the staff was very prepared for our dinner plans. Everything was very smooth. There was no extended wait time for anything from reservations to the dinner and dessert6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to goWe have gone to Wildfire many may times for years. We are a family of six, so we always get the family style. Fanscisco was our server, this last visit. He was wonderful! I would request him everytime we go back, from here on out. The skirt steak is our family favorite. The mash potatoes are the "Jesus potatoes"! You can't go wrong at this restaurant.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfire is our favorite placeWildfire is our favorite place for celebrations and special occasions. Only negative can be the noise level.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was good, but we askedDinner was good, but we asked that an item be replaced with another. Waiter said that was fine. But we got both the item we didn't want plus a vegetable that was so incredibly undercooked I thought I was going to break the plate it was on when I tried to cut it! The veg was served at room temp and hard as a rock. Our entree (scallops) was excellent.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMContinued ExcellenceThanks for another wonderful night at Wildfire, kudos to everyone from Viktor to our server Michael. Greeted warmly from the hostess stand to our waiting table on a Saturday night! The courtesy and efficient service by Michael made for a very pleasant experience. My prime rib eas perfect and my wife said the chicken was moist and tasty as well. Add in the quality beverage service and our meal was once again a quality dining visit to our favorite eatery! Thanks to the Schaumburg Wildfire for their continued excellence!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMStellar!!Never disappointed. Always a treat and the service is superb!! My friends and I will always be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gluten-free spotIt is a challenge to find a place that caters to a gluten sensitive guest and we found it at Wildfire. There is also the added bonus of having delicious food on the regular menu.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWildfire~ SchaumburgHostess was pleasant and on top of things when we arrived ~the reservation was already to go!

My brother was our guest and he is a chef in the San Francisco area and it is always difficult finding a suburban restaurant to take him to! Well done!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!!I have never had a bad meal at Wildfire. Francisco was our waiter. He was the BEST waiter we have ever had. He was so good inn every way. I honestly told my party that the next time we visit Wildfire I would like to request him. My mom paid the bill and I was impressed with the large tip she gave him. I was very pleased. He deserved every dime.
I also want to let you know I am very impressed and love your new gluten free menu. That and great service are my reasons for being a regular customer.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxingThursday, May 30. I was happy that even though it was a Thursday night, the noise level was better than the last time I was at Wildfire. The food was, as always, good. The server, upon learning it was our anniversary, brought us a complimentary flourless brownie with ice cream, which was a nice touch! The rest of the wait staff was very attentive, clearing dishes and cleaning crumbs, which I very much appreciate.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerI reserved a table online for my husband's birthday. There was a special instructions spot, so I put "husband's birthday." They DID read the request! And at the end of a wonderfully delicious meal with awesome service, they surprised my hubby with a little treat. He is SUPER hard to surprise, and he was shocked. He said to me, "I was wondering how he knew!" It was too cute. Great food, friendly service, and cool ambiance.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for those needing gluten freeWildfire is out favorite night out because of their gluten free menu and their ability to accommodate those with celiac disease. Yummy bread, excellent and clearly identified options. We are never disappointed.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as it always has beenDelicious food as I've come to expect. The macadamia nut encrusted halibut is the best! Highly recommend this restaurant.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMANNIVERSARY DINNERWe celebrated our anniversary by going here for dinner. The crab cakes were average. The service was good not great but the place was full. The steak was GREAT. Done just right and the restaurant brought a nice dessert to share. The table was next to the fire exit which one of the staff used for some reason. The resulting breeze was uncomfortable.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMnoise levelMost restaurants, Wildfire included, play the music too loud.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat all aroundMy husband and I tried the special of the night which was the spit roasted turkey dinner. We both loved it. The meat was moist and the stuffing was not dry at all. Would not usually order turkey but it sounded really good,so glad we chose it. The waiter we had was outstanding. Will definitely return.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for gluten FreeMy husband and I have always enjoyed wildfire, from the martini flights to the wonderful steaks. On Sunday, though, we brought some dear friends who happen to be gluten-free. Not only did they provide a separate gluten-free menu, but brought them a plate of gluten-free olls, a first for any restaurant we've been to.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about the experienceEverything about the experience was great. The steaks were incredible and the waitress was excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSalmon DelightTheir Friday night special, Salmon stuffed with mushrooms, red wine butter with roasted vegetables was to die for! Absolutely the best I've ever Salmon dish I've ever tasted!! Kudos to the chef! We went over the top by ordering individual key lime pie for dessert that was also one of the best! We could have split one though and been just as satisfied but we knew how good it was and couldn't resist. Very very good experience, would highly recommend.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousnessAn overall great experience! Great food, environment, service, you name it! High quality food with great taste. All for a reasonable price!
Well worth the experience!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYummoWe had a great dinner - lamb, chicken, some steak combo and of course the chopped salad. The chopped salad was a little different than last time we dined at Wildfire - good, but we prefer the chicken w/o curry.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLove itGreg service and amazing food. Make sure to save room for the desert trio5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness lunches and GF dinersOn this occasion I brought some international business colleagues here to try 'American beef'. The server took the time to explain the specials slowly so they could understand with limited English. Service was impeccable and they loved the food. Wildfire knows how to do a steak. As I'm Celiac, I appreciate the variety offered on the menu and always feel 'safe' eating here. Thanks Wildfire!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was excellentFood and service was excellent as always. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have the brands of scotch that I wanted (Green Label or Highland Park)5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter This Time!We were celebrating a Birthday and everything was EXCELLENT!! Much better quantity of food this time around. Glad to see someone is keeping their eye on the kitchen. Thanks!!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointedWe've celebrated our anniversary at Wildfire for several years. This last visit was quite a disappointment. Server took forever to come to the table; heavy accent was hard to understand. He seemed more attentive to his larger tables (bigger tips?). Took forever to wait on us. We both ordered Porterhouse steaks. Normally the steaks at Wildfire are fantastic. Mine arrived overcooked and quite dry. Because it took so long to get our food I did not send it back. I know I should have sent it back, but we had already been there for so long that I figured it would take forever to get a new one cooked. I would rate this experience a disappointment.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Birthday Experience!Went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful experience! There were special food requests and our waiter was very accommodating.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOnderful WaitressSorry I don't recall her name but she was delightful & most accommodating...the Halibut was outstanding & so was the roasted vegetables & of course the apple cobbles was delicious!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food ... greatOutstanding food ... great ambiance! Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but totally worth it!!Wildfire is a little pricey for your regular go to outing, but perfect for a special occasion! I brought my husband here for our anniversary because he loves steak and is a SUPER picky eater and I had heard from several friends that this is THE place to go for a great steak! He was soooo impressed and loved everything he ate (we ordered the pretzels with beer cheddar dip and honey mustard sauce) and he had the filet and garlic fries. I ordered the seafood trio with salmon, crab cake and scallops. Yummy yummy!!! Thanks for allowing me to satisfy my husband's picky palate!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNot the best steaks in theNot the best steaks in the world but certainly very, very good. The service was outstanding: exceptionally prompt, friendly, courteous. We are noise level sensitive. The level is loud; probably not a problem for the younger crowds but we had to consciously tolerate it.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodLoved the martini flight and the filet trio. The house salad is great with artichokes and eggs in addition to the usual lettuce and tomato.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
