This was our 3rd visit with a group of family members after attending services at Arlington National Cemetery. Food is delicious, varied menu, vegan options, great non-alcoholic beverages and beer selection. Highly recommend for ambience and great service.
We love the Fire Works restaurant in Leesburg and thought we would give the Arlington location a try. The Arlington location is 2 miles from The Kennedy Center and the ambiance was much nicer than the Leesburg location. Trying to fit into the urban bar scene, they cook the hot cookies in ramekins while Leesburg cooks the cookies in the black cast iron skillets. Frankly, the cookies and calzones taste better at the Leesburg location. Would definitely consider the Arlington restaurant again if we were heading in that direction but would not make a special trip to eat there.
Our party of 7 grew to 12 with last-minute friends who were able to join us for the meal. It took a few minutes but the staff were able to change our table to a different location to accommodate everyone. We also had a person in our group with a soy allergy. The chef came out to personally speak to her and her parents and created a meal specific to her needs. The wait staff gave honest recommendations for drinks and the food was filling and delicious!
Fireworks never disappoints! It is a great place for sharing foods for large parties. Also has a great beer selection!
Fireworks has been, and continues to be, one of the best restaurants in Arlington.
Fireworks is a destination restaurant. More than pizza, although the pizza is wonderful, Chef Thomas has done a wonderful job of putting together a modern, excellent menu. Staff, without exception, are wonderful, friendly, and there to meet your needs. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.
The food was great as always, but the service was off. I noticed other tables got bread - we were never offered it. Nor were we offered dessert. or a second drink. They were quick to take away the silverware - so quick we had to ask for another set (we had to flag down the server to order another appetizer). We finished eating 45 minutes before our movie and contemplated going out for a coffee in between - but by the time we got the check and paid we barely made the movie.
Always a go to spot in Arlington for excellent pizza, served quickly and efficiently. Enjoyed the salad I ordered too.
They have great gluten-free options, but I discovered this weekend that the gluten-free items beyond the pizza are even better.
Had a party of twelve. We were seated after about 15 minute wait. Staff did a great job and the entire party enjoyed their dinner.
