- “Dinner Night: Personally I have placed this restaurant in my top five restaurants of all time, it is just so good in every aspect. First time visit left a great impression. We had 9pm reservations for four & arrived 15 minutes early, table was ready shortly after 9pm and the restaurant was packed. Our waiter attended to us promptly, we ordered glasses of wine and reviewed the menu. We decided to order food for all and divided it up at the table so we could each share the variety of flavors from different plate orders. We ordered two salads which were excellent. The service was spot on! Seemed as soon as we were ready the waiter was there to take our next order. We ordered four different entrees and they were each mouth watering. Deserts were excellent, too. On a scale of one to ten, this place was over the top in every way possible, a twelve at least! We will definitely return and hopefully sooner than later!!” ~ Craig F., Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania
- I live in Arizona, but travel to Glen Ellyn a couple times per year since it is my home town. This place has everything. The servers are friendly and helpful, the food is amazing and it is conveniently located in Downtown Glen Ellyn. Also, they allowed us to have an 80th birthday party for my mom during the time that they were not typically open, we had about 40 guests. It was simply the best experience ever. Cheers from Arizona the proprietors!

- Michael,There is a reason your restaurant is always packed. You have amazing food and an amazing staff!! Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Anthony was so kind and attentive along with the entire wait staff and bartender! Our guests all had a wonderful time and raved about the food. I appreciate all that you did to make it a memorable day!! We look forward to spending more time at your restaurant and recommending it to everyone we know. I hope we have a reason to have another event there soon!! Many, many thanks to you Anthony and the staff. Your excellence and attention to detail is greatly appreciated.

We chatted briefly a few weeks ago when my wife and I were having dinner in your fabulous restaurant. I’m the guy with the stiff neck who always orders the vintage Italian Chopped Salad and your friendly kitchen staff always accommodates us.
My recent meal choices have been Asiago stuff Gnocchi along with a side of meatballs. Tonight I tried something new, something I had not ordered before. I had the Arancini Mozzarella along with the Pork Belly… Fabulous! A great combination; everything was perfect. I’ll probably order the same thing next time if I don’t try the pork dumplings + sausage.
In any case, keep up the good work. You are a tremendous asset to our community along with being the best restaurant in Chicagoland.
No response necessary, just wanted you to know about tonight’s dinner. ~Mille Grazie

- “Hi Michael, we had an incredible time. Everyone loved the food and the service was absolutely amazing. My brother-in-law is from Manhattan and you never know if those folks think Manhattan is the best BUT he agrees with me that Fire + Wine can compete with any restaurant in any city. He was singing the praises of the food, decor, ambiance, etc. I think he is jealous you aren’t in Manhattan. My college girlfriends are coming in town Saturday and we are already planning to go to Fire + Wine. Thank you! Thank you! For making it such a great experience!” – April

The wait staff and kitchen are spot on, delivering drinks, appetizers, and entrees perfectly prepared and timely. Mike I just can’t find words that express how pleased we have been with Flour and Wine except to say that singlehanded you have raised the cuisine level in Glen Ellyn. Good luck in the future and we will return soon for another helping of the best of Glen Ellyn.” – Frank And Leigh Georgell
- “Peg & I had a wonderful time for her birthday at Flour & Wine (our new favorite restaurant) in quaint downtown Glen Ellyn. The atmosphere is casual city like with nice brick and wood decor. Everything we had to eat was wonderful but the Burrata pizza was outstanding, Peg’s gonna dream about it until we go back and have it again. Compliments to the Chef, he could be a “Chopped” champion. Great wine list and craft beer list are also available. Michael made us feel as if we were in his own home. Such a wonderfully happy place to spend some time with friends with.” – Dave S., Plainfield
- “I can’t say enough about my excellent experience at Flour + Wine!!! Anthony and our server were very attentive and personable, and the food was absolutely fabulous!!!!

We live in Nebraska, but if ever presented with the opportunity to visit this charming restaurant again, we would certainly jump at the chance to experience such dining excellence!!!
