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.

Everything was great except they tried to seat us at a table right at the entrance to the dining room where traffic between patron and wait staff was heavy. We encouraged them to find us another table and they did.

When we arrived at the restaurant, there were no parking spaces. We had our 2 year old son, and I did NOT want to valet so that we are able to leave the restaurant and get right into our car when we're ready to go. Since there were no spots, we had to valet. My husband said to the valet that it's a bummer not to have the option to park your own car. He said something like I understand, you can mention it to the manager. She will take care of it. OK, no big deal. When we got to the hostess stand, the two hostesses were arguing with each other in front of us. I immediately felt uncomfortable, and off-put. Once at our table, our server was great. Very friendly, took good care of us. He brought out my son's food immediately, and made sure everything my husband ordered was GF. That's why we chose this restaurant; they have a kids menu and large GF menu. When we were ready to leave, as the valet suggested, we told the manager that he said she would take care of it for us. She was rude to us at our table, saying in a very snotty tone "I don't know what you want me to do", and then walked away with our valet ticket. After she had been gone for almost 10 minutes, we got up to leave. She was at the hostess stand holding our ticket, and making fun of us w/ the hostess. When we walked up, we heard her laughing at us, and say uhhh not gonna take care of this for them. I took the ticket and said forget about it so we could leave - it's $6 I DO NOT CARE. BUT she continued to laugh at us/make fun of us. My husband said to another employee your manager shouldn't be laughing at customers while they are within earshot. We left, paid the valet and got into our car. The manger came storming out and told the valet that she was going to just get our ticket and to give us our money back. We told the valet to keep the cash as a tip! She was extremely rude and unprofessional. I would never go back; clearly mis-managed. Terrible example for a manger to set for employees!!

The service was great. They have taken an item off the menu that I really used to love (combo steak and scallops). The bernaise sauce was too watery. The Old Fashioned special drink was good, but they added water which was not in the description and it’s better without. Filet was good but there was a tough part that was inedible.

This was our make up dinner from when they completely messed up the dinner for my 40th Birthday. I wrote a review and the manager had reached out to us to make it right and offered us a gift certificate to return again. So we gave it another chance and they messed up again!! My daughters steak was almost rare when we had ordered it medium well. And my steak was well done and over cooked when I ordered it medium. My husbands meal was the only one correct. They took my daughters back and just cooked the same steak more to the point it was basically charred now. And they remade my steak and didn’t return with it until everyone else was finished eating already. I basically ate mashed potatoes until my steak was made again. But by that time, my family was completely finished eating already. And the steak still was over cooked!! They took my steak off the bill and didn’t charge me for it. But this is the 2nd time that we had a bad experience at this location. It’s a shame because I really like the downtown location.

The waiter was extremely nice and not over bearing. They did remove an entree which was nice since it was over cooked and we did get a booth which we requested. But it definitely was not as good as previous times. We typically go to the Glenview one and that has been better in the past. It was fine but not great.

My Fiancé and I had gotten a few “Lettuce Entertain You” giftcards so we decided to try Wildfire since we had never been. We don’t drink too often but we decided to try the Martini Flight which was 4 mini martinis. Mango, Green Apple, Red Berry, & a Berry/Watermelon one (Stormy Night). The Stormy Night one was absolutely delicious & We wished we got the full size, but it was great for $14 to 4, versus $11 for just one. He had the skirt steak & I had Filet Medallions and both were phenomenal. The prices are a tad high for a normal night out, but for a special occasion we will definitely be returning!

Our server came to the table and instead of reading the specials, she told us we could read them on the list. Then after getting our drinks she disappeared. We had to ask the hostess to give us another server, which she did, and she got our food ordered quickly but after we received it, she disappeared too. The service has gone down dramatically, because we ate here 2 months ago and that server was rude and snotty. And the food was just ok. Disappointing because they’ve always been consistent, but not anymore.

Food was mostly very good, with only an over abundance of onions in the chopped salad the only minor complaint.
Server was generally efficient but appeared a bit disinterested, going through the motions. She was not in any way rude or disrespectful, just distant.

Overall experience was good and the lively atmosphere was appreciated...

Staff wasn't knowledgeable of restaurant's process. Called a few days prior to my birthday dinner to reserve a private room. Staff stated she will put us down for the wine room that seats up to 14 people. Arrived at the restaurant and my guests were seated in the general eating area. Explained the situation to 3 different staff members. The last staff member I spoke with explained the procedure to reserve a room and told me what I should have done. I explained to her the reason I called the restaurant a few days before was to get all the instructions and information I needed to reserve a room. She repeated herself about 3 times and disregarded the fact another staff member gave me the wrong information. She insisted on what I should have done with no apology for in the inconvenience. The 1st 30 min of my arrival was very unprofessional. After we were pass that situation the waiters were good. The food was delicious. They had a few mistakes on the bill but it wasn't a big deal.

It was much noisier than I expected and we were seated right in the middle of the dining room next to a large family party. I had expressed that it was an anniversary dinner in my reservations, hoped for a little bit of a romantic but it was just not the right atmosphere for that. Service was good and the food was amazing as always.

Nothing better than a scrumptious meal at Schaumburg Wildfire! My filet was succulently prepared as ordered and service was exemplary once again! My wife has fallen for the special stout that has finally returned for the fall/winter season. Our waiter was more than accommodating throughout our dining experience. We are most appreciative for all the staff from valet to the assistance. Management has done a great job of maintaining an atmosphere that is the best in the Northwest Suburbs. We have made Wildfire our go to place and have never had a bad meal at Wildfire Schaumburg! Thanks to everyone!

The ONLY time we have ever had anything to "complain" about was when we were seated and did not have a server for about 10 minutes. When we asked, we were told that it was a shift change. Understandable to a point, but someone should cover for that period, even if only to ask if anyone wanted beverages. Thanks!!

We made reservations for a birthday celebration. Initially, we were seated in a terrible location (right as you enter the dining area in the line of all traffic). We requested to be re-seated in the bar area and from that point on everything was wonderful. The waiter was very attentive and fun. The food was exceptional (except for the cold french fries). The night was topped off with a flourless chocolate birthday cake.
