Coal Fired Bistro and Wine Bar
Overall great experience!!My husband and I went there for our anniversary. We could not have asked for a better meal or service. We will definatley be back!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to return to coalWe decided to return to coal fire bistro again to see if there were any improvements after Chef Carlos had left, all in all I really can't complain, we did find the portions a bit smaller... Like others have mentioned in their replies... It lacks that special finishing touch that Carlos always added to make every meal unique. I must say the online menu is misleading as it changes every few weeks so that you are not disappointed in your selection you will want to call the restaurant to have them send you a copy of their current menu, as they no longer make some of our favorite foods.
Service was excellent!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNice surpriseWas in town on business and a friend recommend I try this place. It not on the beaten path really (in a strip plaza south of I 85)
The people were very friendly, and attentive. The wine list was good, and the number of choices by the glass while not vast still held some good wines.
I had the veal picatta and it was excellent.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NightOnce again my wife and I enjoyed our anniversary diner with our friends and Cold Fire. And over the years the food keeps getting better and better. My wife and I made sure that no plate went back with any food on them as everything was excellent. I strongly suggest starting the evening with either the cheeseor meat plate. Both are very well done and just seem to kick the night off perfectly.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOustanding Experience at Coal FireKudos to Coal Fire for offering delicious, well prepared Italian food with the amazing ingredients & recipes!! I was really impressed this most recent visit. I had a REAL Ceasar salad with the most wonderful crunchy baby romaine. I also had the shortrib ravioli--delicate with deliciously spiced tender beef filling. My husband had a beef roulade special that was stuffed with cheeses,spices served over lima beans in a light, tasty sauce. Their wine list is extensive and I longed to try so many items on the menu since they all sounded great! Seriously, we need to patron this restaurant -- it is a real relief from the tired, copycat menus that are cropping up downtown. THIS IS our BEST Italian in Greenville.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had asked for a quiet tableWe had asked for a quiet table and were seated in the patio area, the only people out there. The manager visited twice and our server took excellent care of us. Great food and drink and exemplary service.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in GreenvilleOne of the best dining experiences my husband and I have had in a long time. The food was outstanding as was our waiter.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNot the Same...BETTERI see reviews on here stating its not "as good as it used to be". Personally my wife & I find the food better & more refined.
My wife's sister was in town & has not been to Coal Fired Bistro since Chef Anthony Gray came on board. So I was really anxious to hear what she thought. She noticed the menu changes right away & said it was classier and loved the new farm to table approach.
She had the Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breast and said it was the best chicken she has ever tasted. My wife agreed. I had the 18oz bone-in strip & it was perfect. Best steak in the Greenville area. The cheeseboard, gnocci & potato gratinato went great with our entrees. Lastly, both the ladies agreed that Coal Fired has the best chocolate martinis in tow3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was top notch!Everything was top notch! would have thought you were in New York at a trendy place. great live jazz trio!! waiters did great job explaing menu.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food here. The locationLove the food here. The location is in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm addicted to the food.We had family in town and took them to Coal Fired Bistro. They are from Illinois and this was their first time there. The food was amazing as usual. Our server Dillon did an excellent job explaining the menu items. My family was intrigued with the innomatic wine system.
Unlike some fine dining restaurants we didn't feel as if we had to hurry up & eat. We stayed several hours & had a great time visiting & trying great food. Coal Fired is great.
This is a great place with great food & service. Who needs the hassles of downtown when you can relax on Pelham Red.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
