I love The Chicago Firehouse! The atmosphere is lively and the energy is really positive regardless of whether you’re dining in the lovely formal dining room or in the bar with its beautiful, original Tiffany Co. glazed white tile from it’s firehouse days. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and not pretentious. The food is very good, decent wine and cocktail list. It’s one of my favorite, feel like spending a couple of extra buck places! More

We were in town for a convention and after eating here once, came back a second time. Food was great, service was very friendly and attentive, prices were extremely reasonable, and the food portions were not going to leave anyone hungry. Wish we had stayed long enough to go back for dinner, 5 stars all around. More

Ran in to grab something to eat on st paddy’s day. Packed bar area but restaurant was half full. Perfect to rest feet and grab for so. Our group of five devoured the food and not much was left. Loved how everything went smoothly - food delivered in timely manner and wait staff kind. More

They were a little slow getting a server to us. Once they did, he was very attentive and friendly. The portions are pretty good sized, so we didn't need an appetizer...but we did anyway. Everything was delicious. My wife ordered the Eggplant Lasagna. She said it was one of the best Italian dishes she's had. The restaurant was noisy, but not loud. We enjoyed our visit very much. Definitely worth the stop. More

The food is always good - we love the egg rolls and tried a new plate with tofu which was excellent. You can pretty much guarantee a excellent meal every single time. It was extremely cold out and it was definitely worth the trip for excellent food. The waiters are friendly, warm and on top of everything. More

One of the specials the night we were there was a whole branzino which was cooked perfectly and served beautifully. More

Tapas / Small Plates | South Loop, Chicago

Stopped into Sociale before a show downtown after work on a Wednesday. It wasn’t crowded. Got two seats at the bar for Happy Hour cocktails. We had a number of small plates: scallops, pork belly, smash potatoes, dipping spreads, beet salad and wrapped chorizo. The food was all high quality. A bit pricey once happy hour was over though. Each small plate was about two or three bites except the spreads and beat salad, those were a little bigger. The Chicagoan Rye cocktail was well balanced and delicious. The Pisco Sour was tart and light. Very well done and a bargain at happy hour $6 or $8 I think. Great place to meet and socialize. More
