fire food and drink
Great Dining ExperienceExcellect Food, Service and beverages! An awesome celebration of my wifes birthday.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI can not say enough goodI can not say enough good things about Fire. One of my favorite restaurants anywhere. The menu is seasonal and always has great staple items and the specials are always off the charts. The atmosphere is great and the location is beautiful.......right on the very historic Shaker Square. HIGHLY recommend!!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal Brunch!Have eaten at Fire for dinner but had heard rave reviews on the brunch. I requested going for Mother's Day but due to work came in the day prior. The service was a bit slow but the food was incredible! We started with the sticky buns for the table and sampled many entrees between everyone at the table. Everything was delicious and perfectly cooked. The drive out from Willoughby Hills was worth it and we will find another excuse to come again soon!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in Cleveland.One of the best in Cleveland. Doug Katz, the owner has set a great menu and atmosphere of service. In fact, he always comes over to say hello and check on things himself. Amazing.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Fire manyWe have been to Fire many times and always have an amazing night. The only reason I gave service 4 stars was because we were seated 30 min after our reservation. This has never happened and they gave us a round of drinks on the house which was very appreciative.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMfire is red-hotWe've been coming here for several years, mainly for special occasions. When you have something to celebrate, this is the place. The food is routinely spectacular. The menu retains old favorites and regularly introduces novelties.
The tables are sufficiently close that you can easily converse with a happily – met friend, but far enough apart that you are not required to hear what you don't want to. Chef Katz is a benign ubiquitous presence. Servers are knowledgeable, friendly, prompt and informative. They seem authentically to enjoy themselves. You will have a good time, and you will return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSend off for good friends.I've eaten at Fire several times and have always enjoyed it. However, this was the best meal I've ever had there. The beet and chick pea salad was great. The swordfish was wonderful. Everyone in our group of 11 enjoyed their meal!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, warm atmosphere,Great food, warm atmosphere, management cares and wants to find our how you like your service, food, etc.
Owner chef takes the time to visit each table and if you have a food question will answer with recommendation of what would be best for your taste, likes and dislikes. This is outstanding.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as alwaysAnother super brunch at fire. Beet radish salad was amazing. Burger selfish.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFire on fire!Was looking for a great local restaurant while visiting Cleveland Heights with my family. Fire was highly recommended to me by a friend. Saturday night at 7:30. We were seated promptly and had a knowledgeable and personable waiter. Claybread and warm olives made for excellent appetizers. I had crispy duck confit (the ducky was just ducky!) and my dining companions enjoyed the maryland blue crab and farfalle and ribeye steak. For dessert it was the fire split - fudge brownie, salted caramel ice cream and brûléed banana. I would call it a divine experience. Chef Douglas Katz came by the table and I hope we expressed how much we loved everything! The inside space is not huge, so be sure to make a reservation!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food/Good SelectionThe menu has a lot to offer and the portions are very generous. The wait staff was helpful with their recommendations. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice dinner out.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Sunday brunch. WeFantastic Sunday brunch.

Several managers stopped over with congratulations and our desserts had a special touch to commemorate the occasion. My husband's Lollo Rosso salad was extra delicious as was the mixed berry crisp for dessert. The presentation of every course was outstanding making the evening even more magical. The special "no-oil vegan" dish made my evening! The entree was creative, yummy and presented with exceptional flair.

The chef was really friendly and greeted customers. Great experience overall.

We started off with the famous sticky bun which we shared, then an egg sandwich and fire eggs benedict.

Delicious!!For the first time ever we visited Fire for dessert & after dinner drinks only. It wasn't easy forgoing the AMAZING pork chop!! Our table tried four desserts... the popcorn sundae, Fire split, apple tart & ginger creme brulee. The popcorn sundae has homemade ice cream that tastes like popcorn. The Fire split has bruleed bananas and a rich chocolate brownie. The apple tart has delicious apples and a rich flaky crust. The creme brulee is full of amazing ginger flavor with a homemade milano cookie on top. Needless to say, it was impossible to pick a favorite!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the duck & it was theI had the duck & it was the best meal I've had in a restaurant in ages- everything was great.

The service is consistently good, the menu could use a little more variety but I have never had anything that was not done very well.
Doug, the chef, is great as well.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch on a Sunday AfternoonFire is always a great choice. The menu is creative, upscale and delicious. I've enjoyed everything I had from shrimp fried rice, to pasta. It's a great place to eat with friends. We go for brunch and there are always families and friends - not necessarily a place to hang by yourself (which I do often).3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful local restaurantWonderful local restaurant where we've eaten many times but our first time for brunch. From the cinnamon sugar bread to the tasty cod special, we can always rely that fire does it right, does it well, does it with panache. Love this place!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can always depend on excellentYou can always depend on excellent food and inviting ambiance at Fire. Their weekend brunch menu is innovative and enticing - we like to try something new each time we come (except we always get a sticky bun for the table!). Our server, Tony, always provides outstanding service and makes the experience at Fire that much more enjoyable. Chef Doug Katz is incredibly welcoming, visiting each table to check in with his customers. Fire is one of the best restaurants in Cleveland, and we look forward to our next dining experience there.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLove going to brunch at Fire.Love going to brunch at Fire.

MenuA good meal and experience.
Menu has some disparate (ex. burrata and tandoori ribeye) items which were presented well but lacked either authenticity or flavor. The salad was excellent as was the wine list. Lively and contemporary ambience. Would go back to try other items.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I'veOne of the best meals I've ever had. The chicken liver appetizer was incredible. I had the tandoori pork chop... A must!!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFor some of us it was ourFor some of us it was our first visit to Fire and it was very enjoyable. Our one rather major complaint is the noise level. Even with that we will be back.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Food was excellent - everything was prepared perfectly. Wine selection was very good, although they were out of their wine special that night. Service started slow but was well paced after our cocktail order was finally taken.
Bourbon / rye drinkers: Warning - They load a lot of ice in their cocktails. I recommend shaken and up for their Manhattans or neat and ice on the side. Their Rye Manhattan was tasty but over iced.
We will be back the next time we are in Cleveland.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelivers great cuisine day in.....Katz keeps his flagship restaurant humming along with regular new offerings (plates) along with favorites.
