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.

    Went here with my wife on a Saturday night. Food and service was awesome. Had 7:45 reservations. Got there at 6 so we sat in bar, met a few different people; everyone including staff was very friendly. We had a great time. Our table was ready right on time. Had filets which were perfect! Great night!

    Went there for our third anniversary on a Saturday night...extremely busy place..had a reservation, had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time but that was ok. Waiter's name was Mike and was one of the best I have encountered in my life, even brought us a free desert for our anniversary...very nice touch that will bring me back here again.

    We take friends, family and out of towners for dinner and drinks. The food and service are consistently good with no bad surprises. This time we took friends from Indianapolis and they truly enjoyed their meal. One actually made pleasant sounds while eating his steak. I like the flexibility one has in mixing up the vegetables to go along with their meat. They are accommodating and try to please without making you feel they are doing you a favor. Consistently good.

    My husband and I were so happy to have a night out. We had a 7:15 reservation but did not get seated until 7:45. While waiting we ordered a drink from the overly packed bar, there was not one seat at the bar, and not much room to stand anywhere either, I personally felt uncomfortable. Once we got seated I felt that the seats are on top of eachother and the dinning room is very loud. The service was great and the food was fantastic, the crab cake with the Avalon seafood platter was the best I ever had.

    Dined on 11/13/2014
    Six of us went to wildfire at 7:30 on a Thursday night. We've all been to this restaurant many times, and we enjoy it. However, first they were out of the bottle of wine we ordered. Ok, that happens, no problem. Then they were out of that night's special (duck) when two of us tried to order that. (They didn't say, ahead of time, "we're out of duck"; rather they waited until some of us ordered it.). Finally when one of us ordered the ice cream sundae for dessert, they came back and said they were out of ice cream! Really??? The manager apologized, and comped us two desserts, but this was way below what I expect at Wildfire. I'll give them another chance, hoping this was just a fluke. But if it happens again, I'm done with them.

    Service started out iffy but got better as we progressed All food was as ordered. We were at a bad seating location do to a repair being done on front door Made it very drafty while eating perhaps a screen at the door to block the wind. On the way out my wife ordered a pie to go lady never came back left without it

    I cannot tell you how disappointed we were in the food Monday night (40th bd celebration) the food was embarrassing. My daughter's new boyfriend was with us for the first time and we were embarrassed by the NY Strip steak he ordered. Looked like something you would get from Outback Steakhouse and definitely not 12 ounces. My granddaughter does not eat meat so the server recommended something from the lunch menu. Well, it looked as though it was left over from lunch. Unidentifiable vegetables and dried out pasta! Coconut shrimp were cold and dry, skirt steak was cold, prime rib dip sandwich was all bread, and no meat, and my daughter's trio of filet was the size of three quarters side by side by side. So disappointed!

    We are a frequent diners at WF for both lunch/dinner, perfect spot for a Sunday afternoon meal. First time that we sat in bar which was fairly empty so it was quite it was also the first time service was not the best. I'm sure he was a veteran server but he lacked attentiveness. The salmon chopped salad should indicate raw or cooked salmon otherwise good experience. I have always recommended Wildfire and will continue to do so, it is a great meal, fairly priced and relaxing atmosphere.

    Service was fair to good, but the food was just so-so. Husband's coconut shrimp looked over cooked. My pork loin was tough and on the dry side. The tenderloin round and lamb chop were delicious. Food is pricy and I guess I expected more from what I thought was a cut above the rest restaurant.

    My wife, son and I had an early dinner at Wildfire Schaumburg on Saturday, 11/08/14. It was a fantastic experience! The food quality has always been top-notch here and this evening was no exception. My wife and I had one of the specials, the nut-encrusted halibut...marvelous!! Rarely can you find halibut anywhere so this was special. The server couldn't do enough for us, he was very attentive. This was my wife's birthday and I had requested via OpenTable that a small dessert be brought to the table after the meal. This was done without me having to remind anyone at the restaurant about my request and the three of us shared the delicious warm chocolate fudge brownie that was served. We will definitely be back!

    Great restaurant. We have never been disappointed. One of our steaks was too rare. My wife ate what she could, and we took the rest home. We did not complain since enough of the steak was prepared correctly to fill her up. However our waiter (who was outstanding) noticed how rare her steak was and took it off the bill. Because of his action we are even bigger fans of The Wildfire. We plan to visit more often, and are spreading the word about our experience.

My prime rib could have been served a tad hotter, but it wasn't the end of the world. We had a lobster dip appetizer that was delicious.
