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.

I came here for my birthday for the first time and the waitress was very nice. I ordered the fried calamari, which is pretty standard. However, I ordered the prime rib with au gratin potatoes, and it was delicious and tender. Would come again!

Our waitress Catherine was AWESOME! We had a few hiccups but the Manager took great care of us! Our food was amazing. We normally goto the Oakbrook or Chicago Location but due to last minute reservations this was our only option for location. The Food is always great at the other locations but this time it literally superseded our expectations!!!

My husband and I were there for Valentine’s dinner. We got there 20 minutes before and were told that we would be seated closer to the time we booked. We noticed people coming in with no reservation that were seated before us. When they called us at 6 the front desk host was extremely rude and unprofessional when I asked if we could have a booth I could clearly see that 4 were open and she said that we will have to start the waiting process all over again and gave us the buzzer while she seated other people that had just arrived. I have never had such a terrible experience at any restaurant. The server was amazing but the front end host could have been nicer. I get that it was busy, I also work at a retail store and work well under pressure she might need more coaching seeing that this is not the way you treat guests if you want them to come back.

My wife’s steak was ordered medium rare and came well done . I suspected that her steak was ready before the others . The expeditor must have left the steak knife on the plate under the heat lamp. When the steaks came , the metal handle of my wife’s steak burned and blistered her hand ! It took too long to find our waiter we eventually found a floor manager and let them know .

Made an 8:30 reservation for Saturday after Valentine’s Day. Arrived a little early but was able to grab a drink at the bar and the service was great. Got seated at about 8:35, waitress was very knowledgeable and prompt with our orders and checking in. Only thing was our table was in the back near the kitchen but sometimes it’s the way it goes will definitely come back!

The food is always cooked to perfection, seasoned just right, and served hot! The service is always very attentive, very professional, and very friendly. Dining at Wildfire is like dining at a friend’s home. Excellent experience every time!!!

Prime rib was very fatty and looked gross. You would think a dinner meal should include vegetables or a choice of soup/salad. Very expensive for Meh...

My wife and I were at the Schaumburg location the day after Valentines day and although the restaurant was very busy we were seated within 15 minutes of our reservation time. Our waitress Diane was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and also helped with getting us enrolled in the rewards program. The dinner was incredible and there is no doubt of us returning.
Overall: Great food, great service. Winner!!

I would recommend Wildfire to a friend but I only had one issue and I am sure it is not true with all the servers but ours only checked on us twice for the evening and we had to track him down for our bill. Despite that mishap it was a lovely evening.

We had dinner at Wildfire in Schaumburg on Valentines Day. Our server Eduardo was terrible! At 8:30 the side choices were mashed potatoes or french fries. Even the cauliflower was out. Eduardo was so dismissive and rude about choices almost proudly announcing: No cod, you can have fries, or mashed potatoes only. We ordered medium rare burgers after several dismissals as I felt like whatever. One burger was fine, the other medium rare came out well done twice and was cut into at the table and went back to the kitchen twice. The server never ever came to table to see where the food was, the kitchen and ourselves handled it without him. The bill came, there was no apology about the food or service, no discussion whatsoever, zero communication with us at all, just a bill placed as he walks by. My husband does not know what the bill means as it is just a dollar amount I am told and he asks to speak with our server. When he asks Eduardo about the bill he is told he needs to pay for the drinks, but not the food. We just ordered the burgers, but would of course pay for the burgers that they had a very hard time grilling. At what point is an apology for poor service especially on such a special night of the year warranted ? 2 dozen roses to work, reservations weeks ago, my very favorite day of the entire year! So easy to make the evening amazing. Perhaps send the manager who is always lovely, welcoming and very nice over! There is a reason it is our favorite local restaurant. Amazing food, great ambiance, and typically a nice evening. I’d rate it a D for a romantic date on Valentines Day.

One of our favorite places! New York strip steak w/parmesan crusting absolutely delicious! Great wine list also. A little disappointed in the dessert. We ordered the cookie with ice cream and the cookie is usually hot right from the oven. You could tell this was pre-made due to expecting a large crowd on Valentines Day but all in all a great dinner. Server and staff were very attentive.

Great meal! Would it be possible to offer more gluten free desserts? It’s so boring in so many restaurants with only a choice of brownie with ice cream or creme brûlé. Layer cake, pound cake with bananas foster, carrot cake, cheesecake is also easy to make gluten free.

Excellent food, went there for Valentines Day and will be returning. The server we had, I can't recall his name, was wonderful. He was extremely well educated on the menu and was constantly checking up on us even though they were extremely busy. I ordered the new york strip and my girlfriend ordered the filet mignon. The filet literally melted in your mouth!! Will definitely be returning!

All went well over all. Only thing was the manager wasn’t warm and fuzzy. Maybe too stressed out? Maybe she was annoyed? Idk. She could have been more friendly.

It was the evening before Valentine’s Day and we had 2 couples dining together. We tried to order a bottle of French champagne that was on the menu and they said they had run out. It was a Thursday night at 6:30pm. I asked to see the manager so I could get an alternative French champagne but she just said that they had a delivery coming the next day but nothing today. She never offered to compensate or at least give a discount on a comparable bottle. Then when we went to order the dinner special(only for that evening) they said they may not have that left either. It was 6:30pm. This is just poor planning on inventory for a big dining weekend coming up. I was very disappointed in how disinterested the manager was.
