When I am asked for a good restaurant suggestion in the western suburbs, I always ask if the person has been to Fire and Wine. Usually they say no, go, and really, really enjoy their experience. Fire and Wine is a superb dining experience. Not high end, a very relaxed atmosphere, with an incredible selection of small plates, pizza and... More

I visited here earlier this month about an hour until close. I was seated and then left alone for ten minutes before I decided to grab my own server. I had obviously been forgotten and was then bombarded with an obnoxious number of servers throughout the rest of my dinner, yet no manager or anything else for my trouble.

Great atmosphere and excellent food. Fun for date night or a night out with friends. We love their fresh pastas and every small plate has been excellent. Wood fired pizzas are very good. We've been at least a dozen times and have never had a bad meal.

We live in Glen Ellyn and love going to Fire and Wine to catch up with friends. The food is delicious, I always get a pizza! We also love the small plates burrata, Italian bean dip, ricotta and honeycomb. This place has a good vibe.

We were surprised to find a packed restaurant on a Thursday night our first time at Fire + Wine. A medical condition required we get an immediate seat and the manager gave us a table rather than an awkward seat in a hallway. Never seen that kind of accommodation and really appreciate it. It only got better when the wine... More

There is a preferred list that's saves you time on a walk up, but you need to decide before 6pm otherwise you will have to wait 90 mins+ for a top notch dinner. Staff is top notch - food is great. Grilled romaine is a must try. Beer and wine lists are great. Waiting for the day they buy place... More

This restaurant handles crowds worse than any I've ever experienced. It's a shame too because the food is decent and the prices are great. But, the team (yes team) of table hosts are unable to take reservations and will frequently lose your place and/or table in the booking order. This has happened to me multiple times and is inexcusable given... More

Very good food at this fine Italian restaurant located in the downtown area of Glen Ellen. The place isn't very big so there tends to be lines at times. They offer a great selection of wines.
