The food was DELICIOUS!!! The mood was great for a romantic dinner. Our waiter was a little strange but he knew his stuff about food! His recommendations were spot on & we loved our food!!

As we kick-off our campaign to restore civility to fine dining, we can think of no better place to start than The Chicago Firehouse. Recently, we entertained a large and international group of business guests there, and everything was perfect. As the hosts, we were able to relax and to enjoy our company, instead of worrying about whether folks were having their drinks refreshed or could hear one another speak. Service was smooth and discreet, and all the dishes, from steaks to the vegetarian entree, were delicious and nicely presented. Those extras we ordered to share were easily passed and plentiful enough for all to try. (Let us state here and now and not for the last time, American restaurants that wish to go the trendy tapas route need to study how shared dishes are presented and served in Asia. What you are doing is just a mess.) The atmosphere was warm and congenial, which was just the thing, especially given the bitter cold outside.

So surprised by how mediocre this restuarant is. the bar area is beautiful and there is some seating there. when we first arrived they sat us in the room adjacent which has no ambience whatsoever. it felt like a stuffy old hotel dining room. the hostess did agree to seat us in the bar area when we asked to move. the food is very average. the service was very average. nothing to bring us back to this chicago restuarant.

We were invited to a family gathering at the Chicago Firehouse and were put with our party of 20 in the basement wine cellar. A great surprise as the atmosphere in this old fire house is awesome, the staff went out of their way to make our party a big success and the food was very good. I'd for sure go back during my next visit to Chicago. The building was once a firehouse and used in the movie Backdraft. Don't miss this place while in Chicago.

We liked the location a lot and got a nice tour from the hostess and I can imagine it'd be a great location in the summertime to people watch. We had cocktails, appetizers, and dinner. The menu and drinks are a bit pricey, but overall all of the food was quite good, however one of my family members ended up with a steak that was overdone, which is the cardinal sin for anywhere that is a steakhouse or serves a lot of steaks. The waiter noticed the issue, but my family member decided to eat the steak anyway since it was later in the evening. Without that issue, the dinner would have been extremely good.
