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 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.

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 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 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 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.

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.

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.
