As tourists to the area we had one evening to have a special steak dinner so we chose Chicago Firehouse based on previous reviews. This place delivered exactly that experience we were looking for. Easy to find, reasonable valet parking, and yummy food. The French onion soup was the best so rich and flavorful. The steaks were done to perfection... More

Lovely staff, great attentive service and fantastic food. Everyone except me had the filet mignon and it was melt in the mouth - I had the best burger I've had in years. And a great Irish Coffee topped with mint liquer.

In an old restored firehouse, unique atmosphere, great food, good service. Try the seafood app, comes in a huge bowl of ice, crab, oysters, lobster, shrimp, etc.

I have eaten here, and reviewed the restaurant before. My opininion does not change - it is THE place to eat in this patr of Chicago. The steak is beyond excellent and the other dishes compliment it well. Service is good, prices high but not "break the bank" but I recommend you make a reservation as it gets quite busy.

Had a good experience here during a business trip September 2014. There were a group of 5 of us for dinner. Started with lobster bisque, I would recommend it. I had a Kansas City strip for my entree which was suggested by our waiter. While it wasn't the best I've had, it was cooked correctly & was a large portion.... More

The service and dining experience here is amazing. From the moment you pull up to this historic building, to the time you walk out. You will be amazed! The food is unbelievable and they are so accommodating. My wife and I go here for romantic dinners and it is our favorite!

Had never heard of this place but was intrigued by the idea of an old firehouse being turned into a restaurant. Steakhouse, no less. Was a business dinner so we were upstairs in a private room so didn't get to see much but what I did see was very cool. Also didn't get the full menu but good choices. The... More
