Overall it was a great experience. They have a great variety of drinks and delicious food. Our server was so sweet and had great recommendations.

My only complaint was that we made reservations a week or two in advance and we were still stuck waiting 30-40 minutes before we were seated. It sucks because it basically defeats the purpose of even making reservations. But the staff was very apologetic. Seems like an operational issue when you have a number of people waiting who made reservations.

Everything was fine except the Filet--maybe I just got a bad cut, but there was something just wrong with a section of the Filet that seemed to be "attached"

Food was delicious as usual. But the service was really slow. Waited 45 minutes for lunch. Had to ask the waiter to check on our lunch before he brought it out. I think they were understaffed. We have been there many times before, but never with such slow service.

Great steak house, even if a bit pricey. Everyone is very friendly, and the server we had was exceptional! We found it easy to joke around with him. The one thing everyone should know, however, is it's an Ala cart menu, which can drive up the bill. But their augratin potatoes are very good, so splurge for those.

This is a good place to celebrate special occasions since its expenses, but for those events it's well worth it!

Food was good, service was very good, 2 of us had the filet's, which were very tender and tasty, 2 had the prime rib, which were, just OK, not super tender, kinda chewy... Potatoes were very good, salads, great, soup great...great service, sat by the kitchen which was very noisy for a Sunday evening... would ask for a different seat in another location, a little quieter.

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!
