I have been to Wildfire in Schaumburg for both lunch and dinner and find it to be a good restaurant for a business meal or for a special occasion. The menu for lunch and dinner are similar, but for lunch Wildfire is able to provide a good meal, with good service and no reduction in quality and complete the meal... More

My favorite place for steak is Wildfire. The meat is prepared consistently the way I requested and the sweet potatoes are a real treat. I took my son and his girlfriend there for his birthday since they were visiting from out-of-town and we had a wonderful meal and all agreed it is somewhere special to go.

Wildfire is a Lettuce Entertain you restaurant where your meal is always superb and your dining experience is always great. The atmosphere is sophisticated, although it can get noisy with the large open spaces. The food is exceptional, if you are a meat eater. The steaks with specialized topics are always well received and the chopped salad is a wonderful... More

Really good food but a bit expensive I would limit my visits to special events only. This is not place I take a young family.

The steak (filet) was very tasty and cooked properly, the goat cheese dip appetizer was yummy, and the baked sweet potato was dessert in itself. Just generally wow. Not much else to say other than I would have loved to try one of the desserts, but I had no room left. I will go back.

My husband was down it the area for business, so I decided to join him over a weekend. We were driving by and decided this looked like a good spot for dinner late on a Friday night. We parked and saw the valet parking thinking it might be too high end............but as soon as we walked in we were greeted... More

I have had many business lunches at WildFire Schaumburg. Lunch is not noisy as at dinner. Comfortable booths or tables conducive to discussions. Menus for lunch is diversified from almost dinner like to sandwiches/salads and etcetera. Servers are always polite to inquire when ready to order and keep drinks full. Food is well prepared and served in a timely fashion... More

I have always had great service and great food at Wildfire. Celebrated an anniversary. The food was cooked to order and was just enough. I plan on visiting more often.
