Waiter was excellent and very accommodating. The food was cooked perfectly and delicious. We were seated in a quiet area so we were able to converse and hear the conversation. It's always a good experience at this restaurant. We go as a group at least once a month

Wildfire has been in the Schaumburg location since 2003, near my home, and I have been enjoying this restaurant over and over for many years. It is definitely my go-to fine dining nearby choice. They never disappoint, always aim to please... and their annual bonus offer on gift cards is fantastic!

I'll never be back!! First time and it will be last. When I made the reservations I put it was a birthday and I wanted a birthday dessert, never go it. The food was not good at all. I felt like we were left in a corner to be forgotten about.

We typically go to Wildfire in Lincolnshire, Schaumburg is closer to our home and for our daughters special birthday we thought we’d try Schaumburg.
Very disappointing experience for us.

My friends and I had a great lunch. The food was well prepared and our server was excellent. We had Bison Meatballs, some Scallops and also some Calamari for appetizers as well as a Stuffed Burger and some Cod. For dessert, there was a Butterscotch Pecan Pie that was awesome! Good Food. Great Service and a good price. As always, a positive experience.

I requested for a quiet corner and they gave us a private room instead which I appreciate very much. The only negative thing I have to say is that the service lacked attention. The waiter didn't come by to fill our drinks or check on us after dinner was served and we had to ask
Multiple times for waters to be refilled from different waiters. Aside from that the food was delicious and thank you again for the private room!

We went out the day after Thanksgiving, to celebrate our cook and allow him not to have to cook again. We started with the calamari and pretzels. Our teen boys loved these. Then we had our favorite chopped salad. Half way through (after ordering), my husband remembered that he recently found out that he's allergic to blue cheese, and let the waitress know. They quickly fixed it like it was nothing (but we know they did extra work for this.). Next my son had the sirloin steak with feta on it. It was wonderful, definitely the best at the table. the fries were a little greasy. My husband had the burger, but other teen son had the coconut shrimp, very tasty with the mashed potato sides which were wonderful. I had the ahi tuna special with artichokes and tomatoes. Very tasty, especially the artichokes - lots of them, which I loved. We paired it with the adults having Justin cab wine, which was wonderful.

We came to Wildfire for Thanksgiving dinner, and we were delighted with the quality and quantity of food. We were seated in less than 3 minutes. Their cornbread, deviled eggs, and veggie tray were all very good, and their Wildorf and Wildfire chopped salads were outstanding--very flavorful and well balanced with their respective dressings. For sides we chose the mashed potatoes and the roasted vegetables. The potatoes were mashed and blended with bacon, and I could have made a meal of the roasted vegetables. My word, they were just the best! The spit-roasted turkey platter featured perfectly cooked moist white and dark meat, served with a savory mushroom gravy; the tenderloin was served with a wonderful au jus and was the favorite of the table. For dessert, we enjoyed the terrific pumpkin pie topped with candied pecans (best pumpkin pie I've ever had) and the triple-layer chocolate cake (so good)! For drinks, we enjoyed mangotinis and a very nice cabernet sauvignon. We are so very glad we chose Wildfire for our holiday dinner - the food made our hearts merry. We were thrilled with our meal and the attentive service. An awesome experience for our family members on a day when we were unable to travel to be with the rest of our family far away. A perfect meal for a perfectly memorable day.

Went with a small group to celebrate Thanksgiving. Our reservation was honored, albeit about 20 minutes past the time, but considering the crowds and the holiday it was certainly understandable. Great server that wanted to be there and enjoyed his job. Took care of all of our needs with a smile and efficiency. Enjoyed our meal and the holiday. Plus, everyone went home with a bag of leftovers. Already thinking about next year’s reservation!

We started going to Wildfire quite a few years ago. Since then the prices have escalated quite a bit. Even for a special occasion, the prices are quite high. Just for my son and I for Thanksgiving, we dropped over $160.00 and that was just for the 2 dinners and a bottle of wine that was priced at $30.00. The food was basically just average. And the two salads, (not the caesar) were nearly not as tasty as they used to be. When we started going for the Thanksgiving dinner, the price was $36.95 per person, which was more than enough. Now the price is $47.95 per person, and I thought that we would be able to use our $20.00 reward towards the dinner. Apparently Wildfire does not conform to the usual benefit and would only let us apply half of our $20.00 reward amount which wouldn't even cover the tax. And you are not able to see that they don't give you your full reward amount until you make your booking. This is totally ridiculous! Wildfire certainly rakes in enough money to allow you the benefit of your full reward amount. We will not be returning to Wildfire.

We went for Thanksgiving Dinner, and it was TRULY amazing. The staff at Wildfire always do a fantastic job, and they were most definitely above-average on Thanksgiving Day. I always bring my management to Wildfire, because I know the presentation and meal will be great.
