I visited FIRE for the first time with my girlfriend to celebrate an anniveraary. I have to say that our experience was amazing. In particular I would love to thank the amazing ladies who welcomed us there and brought us to our table. They were so nice and warning, they really set up a lovely atmosphere for us. They even very kindly accommodated a request I had, to leave flowers on the table that i had brought in beforehand. The food was delicious and filling, and so were the drinks. Thanks so much FIRE for an amazing time!

We had a beautiful meal. Food amazing. We did have a new waiter who was only on his second day. God love him. I think he got almost everything wrong but he has to start somewhere and was very nice besides. By the end of it I just felt sorry for him.

We had a business meal in Fire on Sunday evening. I am a gold card member so we received a free glass of champagne each on arrival. The meal was fantastic and the service was amazing.
Just a word of warning to anyone, the food bill is displayed separate to the final bill so I almost walked out without paying enough as I believed I had left a healthy tip but it was just on the food!

Waiting staff were inexperienced, didn’t pay attention to my allergies. They didn’t tell us what anything was when serving or what was removed for my benefit. The server had no idea what was gluten free and didn’t offer to ask. My main course steak was burnt to a crisp and was fatty and inedible. I asked for a replacement which came 15 mins later and well done (I asked for medium to rare). They didn’t charge me which was one good thing about the meal. Overall not impressed and wouldn’t return.

Our visit to Fire was a table of four to include myself, my husband and my two teenage children. Our table was ready immediately and our waitress was very efficient in seating us and taking our order. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice as always! We went for the pre theatre menu option and the menu selection was excellent. The food was served at a lovely pace and was delicious. Following our meal we ordered coffee and moved out to the terrace to finish off our lovely dining experience.
We will be back very soon. Thanks to all.

original table we were given was in a corner even though the resturante was quite empty but we were moved upon request. Two large parties arrived after we had finished our starters and we felt we were a bit overlooked after this. hard to catch the waiters attention. We had a beautiful lunch and the outside seating area was fab as the sun was shining. Will be back

Booked for landmark birthday occasion... rang in advance and was told we would get extra special treatment and best table. However, was shown to a table in the bar beside large first communion celebrations. Manager was quite dismissive and offered to have a table in the restaurant in 35 min, which wasn't acceptable. Finally, seated in 15 min with persistent effort, by which time the evening was sploit.

I am writing to complain about a recent dinner I had in your restaurant on Saturday night May 12th. I have never been so disrespected in a restaurant in my entire life!! The entire meal was a mess. It was a very special occasion & the entire evening was ruined due to the service my friends & I received. The waiter made several inappropriate comments towards me, one of which was in regard to a request I had for a cocktail due to allergy issues. When I asked for a cocktail without an ingredient she laughed and made a joke out of me in front of my friends. My friends steak had to be sent back 3 times due to the waiter getting the order wrong, 3 times!! When the waiter brought desserts over we were under the impression they were free of charge but this was also not the case. Very poor service overall. Avoid this place!

We had our firsr anniversary here and were not disappointed at all. The food was amazing and so was the service.
The lounge downstairs is comfortable and trendy with a wide variety of cocktails. I also liked the personal touch of the staff and i felt really valued as a customer.

I should have said it at the time because it’s not fair to write a bad review without bringing it up at the time. The staff were excellent, the building is amazing, it was my birthday and a big deal as we’ve had a pretty tough year, I’d been told fire was excellent. However our food was horrendous. I ordered the sirloin medium well, it was so thin and like cardboard I didn’t even eat half, my husband ordered sirloin again very poor quality in fact he commented that he’s had better steak at home that we bought from Tesco’s. My friend had the cannelloni and to be honest the presentation was awful and she said it was tasteless. The bill was very high considering the poor quality food. 3/4 of us didn’t finish our food.

This had to be one of the worst restaurants I have ever visited. It seemed to be a place full of wannabes. The service was absolutely appalling and somebody needs to teach the waiting staff manners and how to correctly pour wine. This place has huge potential but did not live up to any expectation. This place is more about quantity over quality.

We was a group of nine people who visited the restaurant. We were received on the 1st floor and referred to the cocktail bar, which had a great variety in drinks. The restaurant experienced was that it was very noisy. There were many people here and hard to talk together. The restaurant was also hot so we had to take off our jackets early. Our waiter worked fast - a little too fast I think. It was difficult to get personal contact with her. The food was ok but not extraordinary. In summary, the cocktail bar was worth a visit and the restaurant should be visited on cold days with little visitors.

Excellent cocktails in the lounge area. Great service from start to finish. Food was excellent and well prepared. Set menu was a good value for dinner. My only negative was that the room was so acoustically lively (loud) that it was difficult to have a conversation with my dining partner or the servers. However, I would still dine there again and would still recommend FIRE to others.

Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff perfect location.
We have dined here before and found our re-visit a wee bit bland! Table staff just misssd that extra ability to engage and make the dining experience warmer.
Food was very nice, but would not exceed your expectations. By fault we may have expected a bit more, however the set value meal of €49.50 was great value and I hope quality & quantity was not lessened from what the main menu.
On a point I was not finished my starters when everyone else’s plate was cleared - kinda gave the impression of a quick turnaround which led to a little unsettling evening.

The service was exceptional. All staff we met were very accommodating and very pleasant, even while under pressure. Considering the price of the overall meal, my guest and I expected a high quality meal. As a result, we were all notably disappointed with the steak. Although it was beautifully tender, it was very poorly seasoned and the salad was inadequate to balance the rest of the meal. Dessert(white choc/raspberry cheesecake) and starters(duck salad) were both stunning. However, the star of the night was our waiter. Thank you.

Myself and two friends dined in FIRE on Friday night. Beautiful food and delicious cocktails. Service was fantastic from grabbing a cocktail at the bar and waiting on others to arrive I chatted to the staff and nibbles on fresh popcorn. Then in to the restaurant we were served by the lovely Christian(?). I will definitely be back in the future!

From the girls working at the front desk when we arrived to the bar staff and waiters, each individual working here could not have been nicer or more helpful. The service through out the evening was top class and the standard of food was exquisite. I have visited with my family and also for work on numerous occasions and I have no doubt I will be back again. I would highly recommend Fire to all my friends and anyone looking for good food, good atmosphere and great service. Can't wait until I'm back again and thank you to all at Fire.

Amazing prawns and chorizo. 5 stars. Incredible steak. Cauliflower and cheese. All extremely calorific but really really great. A little bit on the expensive side. €42 for a fairly regular bottle of wine. No dessert or coffee. €145 for 2 ; quiet table in area at front facing on to the street. Suited us.
