We’ve been to Fire a few times now, and usually really like it. But our main course wasn’t great unfortunately this time round. We both ordered fillet steaks medium. They were over cooked and dry. And the mash was really stodgy. For the money you pay, it has really put us off going back. Shame, as we really enjoyed it before.

Table booked for 7pm,starters mains and dessert finished by 7.45pm, wasn't given a chance to digest one course and the next was out on. Felt rushed into finishing to probably accommodate and next sitting. Waiters were nice and don't think this was there fault but the food was out too fast and felt like a fast food restaurant rather than a nice restaurant. Food was lovely but no time to appreciate it. Spent €150 for dinner for two and would of gone back had the experience been more enjoyable.

It was a great experience since the beginning. Really good menu and wine list. Totally worth it. The only down side was that our dessert took so long to arrive that the ice cream came melted. But overall, great place and atmosphere and tasty food.

While the food was nice enough, not much ambience as the room is so big and dark,not in an ambient way either. Don't think it's worth the money. We had to order dessert with our other courses which is just wrong(even though it was off the set menu) and were never offered tea/coffee! Not the kind of place to linger over your food as it was pretty fast, early night and disappointed 😕

We were requested to gulp our dinner in two hours. The service was crap. The food was delicious. This is my fourth time in Fire restaurant but the worst experience given that I had very special guests this time. I would not recommend this venue for the weekend. Regrettably, nothing will be done with this review anyway. Just cashing the money, that is “Fire” I am afraid. Regards, Edwin Pijpers. Dublin.

This restaurant was highly disappointing. We originally walked by this and expected to get a modern dinner but ended up with bartenders and wait staff that didn’t know the menu or cared to serve us. We definitely don’t recommend this restaurant.

Just wanted a quality meal and night out and was not dissappointed. Service great, staff friendly, welcoming and helpful, and lovely food.
A great night out - the after meal drinks in the lounge were taken in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
Superb night out.

The restaurant itself is gorgeous and the staff are some of the most attentive and professional I've ever met, but we must have been unlucky on the night with our food (we went because many people recommended it to us). One steak main came out cold, a pasta main was undercooked and the fish starters were a bit underseasoned. I would give the place the benefit of the doubt and potentially go again based on everything else, but it was an expensive pity our meal wasn't as amazing as expected.

Food was great, service was very slow and not attentive. It seemed they might have been understaffed, but could not tell since we rarely saw our waitress. Once we managed to see a server, they were friendly just would liked to have seen them more often to order additional drinks.

From the second we arrived outside the gates of the mansion house and Fire I knew it would be an amazing night. The location is beautiful inside and out and once inside the main dining area the extensive and Victorian era beauty is evident. Service was quick and excellent, wine experts pouring and answering questions while our fantastic waitress answered all of our questions pertaining to the menu. We started with the beer carpaccio and the Caesar salad which were very tasty aside from the crunchy onion bits on the beef. For mains I had the 10z ribeye and my fiancé had the in-house dry aged fillet which I was I had gotten because it was extraordinary. The depth of flavor was incredible and cooked to perfection. We finished the meal with the strawberry’s on champagne ice cream... insanely good but the true star of desert course was an amazing piece of cheesecake. It was topped with white chocolate shavings and had the most scrumptious graham cracker crust. Overall if you do not go to Fire on any trip to Dublin you are making a huge mistake. And if you are lucky enough to live on the Emerald Isle I highly recommend this for any nice night out. 13/10

The staff and the food were outstanding, and delicious , and my couple of friends who got married recently. They really enjoyed the overall experience especially the dessert plate with the bride and groom touch on as it was my present gift to dine with them.
Thank you very much the whole Fire Restaurant staff for delivering " a top high quality service" from the moment we stepped in until the end! Thanks a million , not only one single staff but the "whole team" indeed!!! I highly recommend anyone wants to make an unforgettable evening celebration for friends, family and beloved ones!! A truly Five Star unforgettable Monday evening, Well done guys!!!
