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.

    Took my father here for his birthday. As usual, the food and service was excellent. I asked for a special birthday dessert and they indeed delivered. All Wildfire restaurants are consistently great...and this one is no exception.

    Everything about Wildire is perfect -- we were seated immediately, the service was outstanding and the macadamia nut-encrusted halibut with the World's Best Mashed Potatoes were extraordinary. Oh, and let's not forget the Martini Flight. It's one of our favorite places to celebrate a special occasion.

    My Birthday is in April but my boyfrind and I do not always celebrate it on time; This year I decided on Wildfire since my boyfriend has not been there and I have with many friends and for many occasions. I always brag about my Favorite drinks which is the Wildfire Flights of Martini's! He was impressed with the food so I am sure we will be back as I know I will since I am a member of the Lettuce Entertain You Frequent Diner Club. My first Lettuce Entertain You restaurant I went to was R J Grunts back in the 70's so you know I am a loyal fan! Keep up the great work.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    We don't get to treat ourselves to an expensive meal very often. I took my wife here for her birthday. Appetizers were good. Good service. But our filet mignon was way overdone and dry! We did talk to a manager and he took care of the bill and offered new steaks. We already waited over an hour for our first steaks and had other birthday plans so we cancelled the steaks all together. Really disappointing dinner especially when we don't get to eat there cause it's pricey. Next time will have to make my own birthday dinner.

    We can't dine at Wildfire without having the Chopped Salad-it is always so good! I had the Potato Crusted Scallops-which were a generous portion and cooked to perfection. The Creamed Spinach was wonderful, as were the Mashed Potatoes. My husband had the Prime Rib and said it was delicious. My only "complaint" if I had one, was that they were out of the Tuesday night special (Crab-topped Trout) when our order was placed (at 7pm). Guess it was a big fish night! It is not an inexpensive place to dine but we have always had exceptional food.

    Even with our reservation for 8 people, made quite some time time ago, we had to wait 40 minutes before we were seated. Yes we received complimentary appetizers, but with older people, waiting is very difficult.

    Recent price increases are sizeable with most steaks over $30 now. We were seated 15 mins late for our reservation and I think we were seated only after I approached the host stand for a progress check. Service a bit slow. Still a good dinner, but value is waning. They should remove the Al Forno Rib Eye Medallions from the menu, as they are hardly ever available and we eat early. 3 out of the last 4 visits they were not available....should be listed as a nightly special instead. Don't know why I keep hoping to be able to order this item when we go.

    We had reservations for 8pm and were on a tight schedule trying to get dinner in before a concert. We were sat a little earlier than our reservations and had prompt service. The waiter went over the menu and explained everything including drinks and specials. We ordered and had our food in what seemed like 20 minutes. When we were finished with the meal, we checked the time and realized we had about 20 minutes to spare. The main thing: the meal was unbelievable. The steak had to be one of the best I've ever had. Great night all around.

    This was a bit of a disappointing night in terms of atmosphere only. The layout was very open with different levels of dining floors. Our horseshoe-shaped booth was directly facing other diners who were looking directly at us from their booth. Two horseshoe booths facing each other and one is up higher than the other makes for an awkward evening for a couple celebrating a special occasion. It is not the kind of place to celebrate an anniversary for two but more of a happening place for groups. It was also noisy but not unbearable.

    We were up in the area for a concert. We searched online for places to eat with Prime Rib and chose Wildfire. My husband had the 16 oz Prime Rib (medium rare) and I ordered the Chefs Choice of 3 small filet's all crusted with my choice (I chose Mushroom, Parmesan, and Horseradish) and all were fantastic. My husband who loves plain prime rib wished he would have chosen the Parmesan crusting for his Prime Rib and next time plans to do so. I would also like to mention I made reservations on line that day and we arrived early and enjoyed the Martini "Flight" in the bar and ordered the soft pretzels (which I recommend for an appetizer). They were very busy, but our table was ready right on time.

    Was not happy at all, first I was set at a booth table in the bar, not what I wanted when I requested romantic, this Wildfire has gone down in quality on all aspects, I will never go back to this location again, I hope the locations in Lincolnshire and Glenview are better, I will try them again. The food wasn't prepared very well the drinks were okay, the service was average, this is a relatively high priced restaurant, I expect more.

    I had a biz dinner meeting with out of town colleagues. Since this unique 1940s style stake house, this was perfect. My colleagues were impressed with dinner and ambiance. Portions are large and deserts are even larger. We had ice ream desert and had one order and 4 of shared yet plenty was wasted. Overall, positive experience.

    The bad: The dinner consists of only meat and potatoes basically at $30 or more a plate. I had the trio medallion and the largest medallion was the size of a half dollar. The food was seasoned well but I was still hungry after I was done. I would not go back. The good: They did accomodate us bringing a cake (no singing from staff!) and our server was very friendly and sweet, so she was tipped well.
