People kept telling me this place was great and I kept forgetting. It is in a very cute, quiet suburb but the energy (I went on a Tuesday in March!!) by the staff(professional and fun) and patrons was awesome and the decor is well done. I went with a bunch of moms and we had a blast. Not to mention the food is amazing. Really, I mean amazing. Three of us had the melt in your mouth Hanger Steak, two had the Salmon and there was not a morsel left. Usually, I check to see how much people are leaving so I don’t look like the pig I am. Nope, these ladies(not one pig) ate everything and ordered the donut desert. Go with friends, take a date, maybe leave kids (under teen years) at home. This is a suburban gem!!!

We will return to this restaurant not only because of great food and an excellent wine list, but because of the way the server and owner handled my concern over a food allergy.
Fast service and convenient parking .

We came across Fire + Wine by chance and have been three times in the past year. We love it! We live on the far west side of Elgin and dine out around the Fox Valley area alot but needed to venture out to try something new. Fire + Wine is by far our new favorite ... nothing in St. Charles or Geneva really compares (well a couple come close but Fire + Wine is better)! It's worth the wait and the bar is awesome so waiting isn't a big deal. Call first to put your name on the list to help cut down the wait a little bit. Everything I've had to eat and drink has been delicious and the pictures of their food on Facebook always leave me wanting to go back soon!

Stopped in to pick up a gift certificate for a friend so thought we may as well have a drink in the bar. My cocktail of the day was delicious...i believe it was a ginger mojito. Great beer and wine selection. Shared a brussel sprout small plate....next time I'll get a bigger plate. We loved it. Wonderfull flavor and delish sauce.
