Step back in time 60 years 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 quintessential 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

Went there last night, food is going downhill and the drinks are so overpriced. Had the Avalon seafood dinner. Shrimps were very small and overcooked, scallops were sooooo small, crabcakes were warm at best. Martinis at $16.00 each are more expensive than the four seasons hotel. La Marco proseco for $14 for a 187ml, really!!!!!!. I have always loved this... More

I booked this place on open table after reading the great reviews and knowing I would be staying in Schaumburg for a show. When booking on Open Table I noted that it was my husbands birthday and asked that a specific dessert be served after dinner and any other attention they offered for special occasions would be appreciated. After fall... More

Visiting family for the holidays we decided to have dinner at Wildfire and we were glad we had made reservations in advance! They seated us immediately and the service was great throughout the meal. We had grandchildren ages 6 and 7. They ordered from the children's menu. My granddaughter did not have a happy face when they brought her Mac... More

Always a treat for me to go there. Nice cozy atmosphere. Lots of businessmen go here for lunch. Go early for lunch hour to get a table. Food is quite good. Reasonably priced, maybe a little high. It's like a 50s supper club.

A favorite steakhouse that offers great service and food. Prefect place to start the New Year with Prime Beef cooked to your delicious choice, served with horseradish sauce to give it an extra kick. Never disappointed, except too full to enjoy dessert! Save room!!

Ordered the martini flight. Four different samplings: cosmopolitan, green apple, wild raspberry cosmo, and stormy night. Just enough of each to equal a full size martini. Each time I have visited I have ordered this. The filet medallion trio is excellent. A choice of signature crusts including horseradish, blue cheese, and parmesan. All three are delicious, so I order all... More
