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.

Delicious as always. Love the Filet Trio (with 3 different crusts. I chose horseradish, blue cheese and mushroom). A side of sweet potato with butter and brown sugar. Topped off with their delicious Key Lime pie made for a perfect meal. Service was great too.

Wildfire is a fabulous restaurant. On this particular night, they were running a bit behind even if you had reservations. Once seated, the noise level was very loud. The wait staff was great and the food is awesome.

Our food was excellent. Unfortunately it took us a while for a server to attend our table. He was very apologetic and comped our appetizer for the delay. The delay didn’t ruin our experience.

Always a sure bet! We could not decide where to take my friend for her birthday lunch so we decided on Wildfire. Our waiter couldn't have been more attentive. One of the specials for the day was a blue cheese stuffed burger that was phenomenal. There was a wonderful selection of wines by the glass and yet the house Cabernet was as delicious as any of the name brands. It was a birthday celebration so we took our time and although the restaurant was packed we never once felt rushed. The birthday dessert was an extra special touch and once again, Wildfire made the trip worth while.

Food was great. Not a fan of their half circle seating. Makes it hard to have a conversation, esp since it was loud the night we went.

Our wait person was fabulous. She was attentive to our needs without being intrusive. I regret not noting her name as I would ask to sit in her section every time!
The food was excellent. The desserts looked fabulous but too full from meal to partake! Next time. Looking forward to our next visit

Great food, average service and some of the decor is showing it’s age. We had a 7 PM reservation but had to wait 20+ minutes for table. A card stating we had a birthday was left on the table when we were seated, ruining the surprise for the birthday girl. But I have to say our drinks and meals were excellent. Steak cooked to perfection and best pork chops!

Restaurant is way too loud to have a conversation if you have a few people. I was very disappointed because I requested a private room for my family and was told it was open the following day and it wasn't.

I have eaten at Wildfire many times and usually it is very good. This time however, they drastically under cooked their filet trio, as I ordered it medium, but it came out rare in the middle (and not just a little, very rare). I of course sent it back, but they asked me to cut all three pieces before doing so. No big deal, except they then proceeded to throw my pieces of steak back on the grill and char the outside of the steak (to the point where it was literally crispy) in order to get to medium in the middle.

For what this restaurant charges (and the quality they represent), it would have been nice to have them remake it from scratch correctly. In the end, I ended up eating the charred steak and not complaining a second time, since my date was half through her meal by the time I got my meal back from the kitchen.

I just expect more from this type of restaurant, but that didn't happen.

The prime rib and au gratin potatoes are always the best! So are the martinis and their house cabernet. And the service was excellent as well. We love this place!

We celebrated my Birthday Lunch. Seated in a very cozy booth in the bar area. Our server Kyle was wonderful ! Had the best gluten free flatbread, and was surprised by the gluten free chocolate dessert .

We chose Wildfire to celebrate my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. All of the staff we encountered from beginning to end were very professional and friendly. Overall the food was delicious and the service was excellent! We enjoyed the flavorful steaks and side dishes.

Not Schaumburg location . When we got to our table there were crumbs on the seats the glasses were old and all scratched and when I unrolled my napkin there was food on my knife. Also had a taste for ribs and they were out at 7:30pm! The New York strip was good by not any better then we make at home!

The waitress was great. I reported to the waitress and showed her that there was a long hair in the whipped butter (I noticed that as my husband started to spread the butter on his bread). She laughed and said "it's not my hair, because I'm platinum blonde" and the hair was light brown. So she told my husband that she'll get him another Scotch on the rocks. Which we thought would be complimentary. But we were charged for it anyway. Also, they ran out of chicken, which made everyone at the table wait so long for their own food. Finally the waitress explained the kitchen ran out of chicken, but they went out to the store to get some chicken. I wish she would have told us right away, I would have selected a different entree. Very disappointed with Wildfire. Not the Lettuce Entertain You dining experience we paid for!

Got together with my friend to help me celebrate my sister’s birthday. Salmon and prime rib was ordered. Food was good but the size of each prime rib didn’t appear to be two different portion sizes. One was a king cut and the other a queen. Both appeared to be equal in size. Not super happy about that since the price difference was $6. The king cut seemed larger in the past. My sister and I used to order the king cut to split it and order an additional side. We would come in more often if the prices weren’t so darn high.

I had asked for a booth, but then one of the members of our party didn't want a booth -- so they moved us to a table near the serving area up next to the kitchen -- almost like we were being punished for asking for a different table.

Monday night. Sat in bar. Slow night. About half full prior to start of Bears game. Bonus was 1/2 price bottle of wine night. A great surprise which we took advantage of! Service was slow. Very slow. The first time we ever experienced slow service at Wildfire. The sever was very friendly and likable, but slow. He said he would bring bread three times. Did not bring prior to drinks arriving. Did not bring with drinks. Finally brought basket of bread when the meal was served. Not a big deal. Just a little annoying. Also, asked mid meal if we needed anything. We asked for more condiments. He never came back.
Always a great time and great food and amazing atmosphere at Wildfire. This night was just an off night.
No worries. We will be back soon. It’s one our favorite spots. Always!
