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.

    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

    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!

    After many years off always ordering the Coconut Shrimp, I will have to find a new dish to order. The price of this dish had risen to $23.95, high for a fried shrimp dish, but if ok, I would not mind. Although the price has risen, the size of the shrimp has diminished to a bite sized morsel, and just fair in quality. I love this restaurant but no longer my favorite dish.

    I went with my husband early on a Saturday (6pm) and the food was delicious! We ordered our favorite meals, mine the Saturday night special, the filet Wellington and him a prime rib. Very yummy meals and cocktails. The waitress was very pleasent. Normally I don't order desert but this night I ordered the crem brûlée and my husband ordered the apple pie, and he loved his. Unfortunaly they were out of cream brûlée at 6:40 at night.

    pricey for the quality. Halibut was very salty and did not look like halibut. sent back. ordered something else, took awhile, my guests finished by the time my order came. By that time I had lost my appetite. My son recommended Wildfire but I was disappointed. If I went back I would get a simple filet. Salad too pricey. Sweet potato was good.

    Met my sister to celebrate her birthday. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. He offered suggestions, told us of staff favorites, etc. Service was quick but not rushed! We had the Alaskan Halibut. A little crispy on the outside and warm, flaky and oh so delicious on the inside. It is our favorite item on the menu and since it's a is availability is almost over for this year we indulged. The Wildfire Chopped Salad is always a favorite too. Great blend of lettuce, avocado, tortilla strips, bacon, chicken and bleu cheese. The dressing on this is a tiny bit sweet, but great combination of flavors....nothing too overwhelming

    The food and service was great was there for our anniversary...Purposely went early because of the noise in the past. Our Waitess and staff were very pleasant and we were seated promptly and service was good. Only, thing I thought was a little disappointing was this was our anniversary and they really didnt do anything to make it memorable.. This is not a cheap place $14 for a cocktail. I have been to other restaurants where they have had a rose for my wife, a card, special menu or a comped a dessert..not here..nothing nada...sorry...
