    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...

    My wife and I went here for our anniversary and although I have been here about 20 times before, I was disappointed on this visit. The family next to us must have thought this was Red Robin, they had their 8 year old boy sitting in a booster chair some of the time and on his dads lap or wandering around the other times. The couple two tables away must have come in from fishing, the lady had on shorts and a tank top and the man had on boat shoes, shorts and a t-shirt. It also felt like we were dining on a freeway, way too much foot traffic by our table. The server was of Mexican heritage and I think I understood about 3 of every 10 words he said. Overall, the food was good, but the atmosphere and total package was disappointing.

    My husband and I went out for a rare "alone" date and we alway know we can have a lovely meal at Wildfire! Our server was knowledgable, accomodating and patient. The food was outstanding...as always. It is consistently great. The potato crusted scallops were amazing! And of course, you can't go wrong with a filet there. I could smell the cedar planks cooking salmon and I struggled with not ordering that! It is by far the best salmon I've ever had. We are rewards members and our meal ended up being $5.55 after using our rewards points...it's a great program! Thank you for making our date night perfect!

    We went for lunch on a Sunday and the prices were affordable ranging from $11 and up for a plate. We had two small babies with us, which they were very accommodating to. I've also been to wildfire for a rehearsal dinner and the food was wonderful and they were extremely accommodating to the very large group and all of our requests.

    We been to WILDFIRE many times, and the food is pretty consistent. The service varies...from too attentive, too not attentive enough. This last experience, the waiter was awful. He would rather spend his time talking to the diners at the table next to us (I think they were friends), than take care of our service. We asked for more ice, and a fork, and neither were ever brought. I think we were "bothering" him. My friend left a 20% tip, but I think the tip should reflect the service given, and that was too much.

    We went to Wild Fire to celebrate my husbands birthday with our 2 grown kids, and were seated immediately. I highly recommend reservations since we tried 2 other times to get in without them and had no luck. The service was great and the food was wonderful, everything even the banana coconut cream pie was a dream. We had such a nice experience, but because it is pricey we can't dine there more than 1-2 times a year. We will go back on a special occasion though.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    My first time at Wildfire was not what i thought it would be. I had heard great things about it and although they have interesting choices on the menu....i was not satisfied. We were a group of five and all ended up getting the same thing because we were in the mood for a good shrimp pasta...when the plates came out it looked delicious but we all barely ate our plates because the shrimp and sauce were extremely salty. For paying 19 dollars a plate, we were disappointed. I had to order a side of mashed potatoes and macaroni because i was left so hungry but was not going to eat my salty food. I'm not bashing on the restaurant maybe it was just a mistake and if i were to return it will be better but for that night we all left hungry.

    Was expecting a long wait but experienced only a five minute wait. Tried the outside tables at the Schaumburg Wildfire and found it to be very nice. Temperature controls/heater worked really well. Planning to go back again soon because the food is fantastic and the wait on a Friday night at 7PM was very reasonable.

    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.

    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.

    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.
