What a great restaurant! The food was fantastic and the service even better. Ask to sit in Juan's section as I'm sure he won't disappoint. Bread - excellent. Calamari - very good. Lobster crab bisque - incredible. Filet & Scallops - Wow! Don't miss this plate! Absolutely incredible. And to put your taste buds into total overload, here comes the... More

I'd be remiss not to mention off the top of the bat that the wood roasted mussels there are the best I've ever had, and I've had them everywhere. Plump, juicy, perfect. The staff are always professional, cheerful and happy to please, although on this occasion, she was sullen, silent and seemed distracted. Requests for simple things like sweetner were... More

I've only ever had the angus burger here but it is because they are the best! Very juicy and flavorful. Service has always been outstanding as well.

My husband and I went to dinner with another couple. We thought our food was just "okay" (he could have made it better at home) but the other couple enjoyed their dinner. The worst part was our service. Our waiter was horrible. I ordered the martini flight and he spilt one. We used a napkin to clean it. We asked... More

I read great reviews on the Wildfire - Schaumburg and gave it a try while in town for business. It was a delightful experience. The ambience was elegant and open. My service was a perfect mix of knowledge and just enough interaction to be enjoyable. I had the Beet & Goat Cheese salad as a starter -- scrumptious. For my... More

I had the best halibut that I ever had at Wildfire. This special item was coated in macadamia nuts and sauteed perfectly. Served with asparagus. Absolutely delicious. I was here catching up with a good friend...a 3-1/2 hour lunch, but never felt the need to turn over the table. Service prompt, friendly. Expensive, but worth it.

The grill is excellent. The dining experience is always started with corn bread....perfect!! I tried the Baby Back ribs with wild rice and managed to sample the plank salmon and the penne which were all above perfect. The Baby Back ribs is not spicy nor very sweet...Its just right!! The Penne is not drowning in pasta sauce. The Salmon is... More
