Fire is nice but I have been a couple of times now and I feel it is over priced and not value for money for what it is. The starter was very average as was desert. The thing they seem best at is charging. There are plenty of other restaurants around with better quality food.

This is my third visit to Fire, the first two were business but this time I brought my family. The experience was great, right up to the moment we were abruptly told to vacate our table. I appreciate the need to turn tables but it could have been handled so much better by the person concerned and left a bitter taste.

Waited 1 hr 15min for table, steak was cold, one main meal was wrong order, lost our Birthday cake, bar staff were inexperienced, didn't know their drinks. Very disappointed . Will not be returning

Overall the food was pretty good but the brownies for desert were appalling. They were far too dry and pretty tasteless. I would expect more from a restaurant like Fire. The service was okay, but it was hard to get anyone's attention to order drinks. Unless we ordered as food was being served, we could forget about getting another drink.

Service is everything and Service is excellent at Fire.
Great food and great surrounding can be pointless without excellent service and FIRE provides exceptionally good Service standards without being pretentious.
Really enjoyed the meal and the surroundings

Our first time dining at Fire. The pre fix menu provided a variety of options for us. One person doesn’t eat meat or poultry and the other has a sensitive stomach.
The shrimp appetizer was superb! I enjoyed the chicken dish. One person had the cod and truly enjoyed it though cod is not his favorite fish. Desert was delightful. Ambiance was wonderful and service excellent.

Probably wouldn’t go back. Service was okay. Food wasn’t the best. Veggie option was cold and not cooked through. I think they need to renovate the place and figure out their marketing strategy. Don’t try to be give five star service (miss the mark) and then have booklets on the table to say you do cocktail classes. It’s a very mixed message.

Food was average at best. We spent nearly €500 and feel ripped off because of it. The waiter wasn't exactly friendly and was constantly making faces and had an attitude. The place looks very nice but is definitely not worth the price.

I was expect high quality of meat as price is high but this was definitely not worth this money. Bernice souce was like butter and dessert was so simple...

Disappointing. The promise of the reception area and bar was not fulfilled by the restaurant which is barn-like and lacks intimacy. Likewise the menu was unexciting although the food was acceptable.

Disappointed from the start. When we arrived on time we were told the table want ready, and that we could have a drink and we would be contacted in 15 minutes when they were ready. This was fine but 30 minutes later we still had not been approached. At the bar we had the pleasure of passing a number of hen parties, not the restaurants fault but when one individual is mindless drunk, drops a card reader and then 10 minutes later spills a table of drinks I think it is time to intervene.
Table service was good and myself and my two friends were tentatively served. However, when you order at 9pm and dinner arrives at 9:45pm and when you order a rare steak for €45 euro and it comes out cold, that is just down right criminal. I’m disappointed with myself for not saying something at the time but 1 hour and 30 minutes after we were to be seated I just wanted to eat dinner with my friends. I won’t be back to the restaurant, there are better steak restaurants in Dublin.

We arrived at 16.45 and were given the early bird menu. When we went to order from it we were told we couldn’t even tho it was before 5pm that we were to late. Why give it to us then? Very disappointing if you really wanted it.
It was very very noisy.

We booked this table for 5 one month ago. We were placed at a dreadful table beside the coat rack! They had pushed two tables together so the diner in the middle was sitting between the two wobbly tables.
The location was exceptionally noisy and we were behind a net curtain so we could not see the rest of the room. The food was ok but the portions were not generous. We considered it to be poor value for what we paid.

Fire is a regular go to place for us. It is always at the standard we’ve come to expect and appreciate. Very accommodating also on the occasions when we are “walk in”.
We look forward to our next dining experience at Fire

Our server was extremely grumpy, she seemed to busy to even welcome us or check in throughout the meal. The food is amazing but it was packed, super noisy and the staff seemed run off their feet. We were there 2 hours and only ordered mains. The hostess who treated us was so lovely though so we left smiling!
