We loved every part of our dining experience. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. The only thing is the scallops were so so small and for the price it didn’t make sense. Otherwise everything was delicious and wonderful!

We eat at Wildfire often, but usually for dinner. Our party of 5 ordered three salads, a burger and crab cakes. The burger and crab cakes were good, but the salads were unusually bland. Two of us had the Waldorf salad that tasted like it was covered in watered down onion mayonnaise, and the other one a bland and dry Caesar. We thought the salads would be great, but were far from it.

Service was great but seemed pretty rehearsed. Quality of the filet was not great, seemed pretty stringy. The horseradish "crust" was kind of a gimmick but not bad. Meatloaf special was definitely the best thing at the table.

Enjoyed a great Valentine’s Day off the special menu. I cannot believe that we received four excellent courses, with a giant salad & entrees for $95. What a great deal. Service was excellent, ambience was nice.

First time dining here and I was very pleased with the service and excellent wine. I was even more impressed by their New York strip streak with parmesan crust. OMGGGGG!! the most tender steak I have ever had! Never eating another steak unless its a Wildfire steak!

Wildfire is a favorite restaurant because the food is consistently fresh and well prepared. The cocktails are excellent. The desk staff accommodated us although we arrived early. Our waiter, Matt, ( I think )was outstanding.

Great food and service (Art was very attentive), beef medallions with the horseradish topping was better than either the Parmesan or Bleu cheese, but those were not bad either. Portion was a little on the small side, but left room for the peanut butter cup dessert, which was perfect. Not too sweet. Nice quiet at 11:30 turned into bustling at noon when the majority of people arrive for lunch.

Always a great experience and this visit was no different! We love Wildfire for their diverse menu but usually stay true to our love for Basil Hayden’s bourbon tips. Our visit was amazing as always and our waiter was super attentive.
We’ll be back for sure!

Always a great meal, and great service . Cocktails are generous and tasty. My wife and I have been going to Wildfire (Schaumburg, and Glenview) for many years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. We have never been dissapointed.

We went to Wildfire for my husband's birthday. He opted for the special - Filet Wellington. It was good but he was disappointed that he didn't just order a filet. I had the New York strip which was excellent. The atmosphere is warm and cozy but where we sat was a bit noisy. Service was good. Waitress was very busy and did not stop to ask how we liked our food or if we needed anything after our meal was served. We both really like this restaurant and consider it our "go-to" for great steaks.

Calamari was really oily and overly salty. My medium rare bone in rib eye was instead rare and they had to take it back to cook it more. Worst meal I’ve had there at what I previously considered my favorite restaurant.
