We moved from Glen Ellyn a few years back ,but still head into town on occasion for the glorious Fire and Wine. It is absolutely perfect every time. The food is innovative, fresh, and always off the charts delicious, the service is fantastic, and the...atmosphere is somehow upscale yet homey at the same time. We have never been disappointed in this wonderful place!More

I can't say enough about how wonderful Fire + Wine is. Great Food, impeccable service (Laura was by far the best server I have ever had) and great atmosphere. It was a little crowded on a Saturday night as expected. They do not take reservations...but their website indicated you can call ahead and be added to the Priority Service list which allows you seating before walk-ins. The hostess indicated it was over an hour wait to the walk-ins but since I was Priority I was told 20 minutes but was actually seated within 10 minutes. We shared an appetizer and we both ordered the specials which Laura recommended . Everything was cooked to perfection and was absolutely delicious. Desserts are great, our drinks were great (they make a perfect Old Fashion) and overall just a perfect 5 star evening.More

Visited this restaurant last night. We were a party of eight and had reservations for 6pm. We were seated promptly. Our server came over and greeted us, then told us that we were lucky our table wasn’t given away since we were so late. He...said the manager was trying to call the person who made the reservation but got no response. Told us again how lucky we were that the table was held for us. My friend who had made the reservation told him we were all on time (everyone arrived by 6pm) and took out her phone to show him she received no call/message. So obviously some kind of mixup on the restaurant’s end. No apology. Just stated AGAIN that we were lucky our table wasn’t given away! Good food but the stingiest wine pour I’ve ever gotten.More

Hello chguest56, I have read your review and will certainly look into it and why our staff member would’ve been saying such things to your table. I would appreciate if you could let me know who the server was so we can coach them appropriately....More

Went here as part of a group of 4 on a Wednesday night. First time here: originally from the area but currently living out of state and in town for a visit. Had reservations and am glad we did...very busy for a Wednesday! I'll keep...it simple: fantastic food with great, friendly, and quick service. I've seen reviews that have been posted about "feeling rushed". We certainly didn't have that feeling...even on a busy night...nor did I see anyone near us who would have experienced that feeling. I know it's a great place to hang out, but how long does it take to eat, anyway? Looking forward to a return!More

So disappointed. I loved this restaurant and supported them through the peek of COVID with tent dining and take out. When they had limited seating, they implemented a time on your table - 1 1/2 hrs. Totally understood. Now that they are at full capacity...they told us they were keeping that rule. We felt rushed. Service deteriorated towards the end of our meal as they were trying to herd us out, and they shortened the pour on our 2nd glass of wine to speed things up. Sadly, I don't believe I will dine there again or get take out. Other restaurants will appreciate our company.More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends but after a little over an hour we were asked to leave because they needed our table. First time that has ever happened to me, anywhere. It’s not like we were sitting there for hours. I’ll find another place...to eat where my presence doesn’t feel like an imposition.More

Had dinner with friends this evening. We ordered the specialty cocktail ( the Wildflower ) it was not only delicious it was beautiful! Started with the house salad, my entree was the beef medallions. They melted in my mouth, perfectly seasoned. Sides were potatoes, broccolini...and peppers. Ordered the Butterscotch Budino - it’s light as air and the sea salt was the perfect touch Thank you for a great early eveningMore

We each had the Edinburgh Gimlet ( I thought it was an amazing, very botanical) We split...the ricotta and honeycomb with the gluten free bread - absolutely delicious !

Stopped in here to escape the winter chill of downtown Glen Ellyn. Stayed for a few delicious drinks. The bar provided a warm respite from the winter weather outside. Can recommend the drinks; will have to come back to try the food.

6 great friends got together at Fire+Wine yesterday for an early Sunday dinner. Some of the group had been here before and spoke highly of it. They were right! The menu had a nice range of options : Small Plates, Soups and Salads, Larger Plates,...Pizza, Pasta and Sides. The Calamari and Zucchini Fries were great starters. The Blackened Salmon and Tagliatelle, Lake Superior Whitefish and Wine Braised Short Ribs and Risotto were the entrees we selected - all were discussed extensively by the group all to rave reviews. Bar choices included a wide range of bourbons (our choice drink) and were excellently prepared. The wine list was extensive with a nice range of price points. Service was friendly, professional and prompt! A great experience!!More

After many years this restaurant still has great food. We went for dinner on Sunday night when the crowds were smaller. I recommend using the call ahead service to get on the waiting list. Sometimes the wait can be well over an hour.More

Our family of 4, age 15 to 72, arrived at 3:00 on a rainy Saturday & were seated right away. The decor was exposed brick, wood tones, candles on the tables & it was very cozy/comfortable. Our server was friendly, prompt & knowledgeable. We started...with small plates: calamari, arancini, muscles & the ricotta w/honeycomb. The serving sizes were larger than expected & imo, matched the prices. All 4 dishes were delicious, especially the muscles & the ricotta. We also ordered the Italian pie which was just “ok” & the 10 oz blackened prime ribeye which was outstanding! Perfectly cooked & extremely flavorful. Even the included side salad was very good. We have since realized that we received the meatball pie in error (not the Italian pie we had ordered) & that is why it was just “ok”-texture & flavor wasn’t what we expected. Although we were all pleasantly full, we pushed on & ordered the zeppole (Italian fried dough) & the flourless chocolate cake. Again, both were delicious & serving sizes were large. Recommend going for a bottle of wine instead of glasses, as the per glass pour seemed on the light side. Overall a great meal in a very comfortable atmosphere. As the dinner crowd rolled in, folks seemed to be more dressed up, but still many people in nice jeans & sweaters too. We consider ourselves serious foodies & very rarely does a restaurant deliver quality, flavorful food as well as a Food & Wine did. We will be back!More
