  • A Night Out With Friends
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    The atmosphere was excellent. Our group of 5 was at a corner pod table/booth. Our waiter was excellent, and the manager went above and beyond to take care of our group. I am a regular at this restaurant, and I travel over an hour to get here. I have always had an excellent experience every time!! The food is always fresh, and rotated about every 30 min or when it runs low. The grill cooks are fun and upbeat. Overall a great place to have drinks and create endless all-you-can-eat food combinations!!

    Fire and Ice is a good venue for parties and special occasions but not a typical Saturday night out. You come to Fire and Ice for the experience: picking your own ingredients and watching chefs cook it on a giant grill right in front of you. Food is not bad; you'll end up eating a lot.

    The wait staff was extremely friendly although less than attentive on refilling drinks and water glasses. The energy of the restaurant is amazing and the all you can eat and the various choices of food and sauces is fantastic. It is way too loud for a romantic dinner but for a group or family out for an exciting dining experience it is just the place. The prices are excellent and can't be beat for a downtown night out.

    It is what it is. The place is like a carnival, especially in decor, with the main attraction being the huge grill in the center while being surround by a lot of joyous noise and foot traffic back and forth from table to grill. You don't go here on a date night or for conversation. It's great for a group of friends or for families. It is an entertaining dining experience. My kids love the decor, putting the food items together, and going up to the grill. The quality of the food is good given the quantity of preparation and ingredients of every individual bowl. The servers do a good job at catering to the "hordes" :)

  • subpar food and terrible service

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    We made a reservation, and Fire and Ice called to confirm, but after that it was all down hill from there. We arrived early but were not seated for over 45 minutes. The hostesses were very rude and condescending and definitely should have have been working the front of the restaurant. I am shocked the managers put them there because they lacked basic customer service skills. When we asked why we weren't being seated, they yelled at us and were very unpleasant. After finally being seated, the food was subpar. Dinner runs you $19 + tax and tip, and I don't think it was worth it. The selection of meats was pretty standard...nothing too impressive. The cooking process results in thin cuts of meat being overcooked, rice being too crispy, and veggies being half cooked. The chefs were kind of entertaining, but overall the service and food were not worth the price. I will not be returning.

    This is my all-time favorite restaurant! They have a great food selection and it's just a fun atmosphere. The staff members are always upbeat and friendly, especially the cooks around the hibachi. They also have an email club, which is great for discounts and such on holidays and free meals on your birthday.

    We went on a Monday for college night and luckily had a reservation, by the time we got there they were turning people away at the door the waiting list was past closing. Sadly fire and ice closes super early so by the time we got seated, waited for our food since there were so many people we basically say ate and told to get ready to leave. I wish they were open later but understand most people don't eat late

    We were visiting my son who goes to college in Boston and wanted to take him and his roommates out to eat somewhere fun. Fire+ice was the perfect spot! Vibrant atmosphere on a Friday night-- lots of 20 something's but not so many that we felt out of place. It was energetic and loud but when we returned to our both from getting our food, it was plenty quiet to hear one another talk. There was something that everyone liked and it was great fun preparing and seeing what everyone came up with. Everything we had was fresh, delicious and plentiful. The price was reasonable for the all you can eat style restaurant. We made reservations @ 8:00 and was seated by 8:15. Overall fantastic experience--We are looking forward to returning soon!

    Was good, but then was charged more than it said on the website. We were told prices were never posted. When we showed the manager their own website, was told they could not verify except by a computer, which they did not have. One of the workers then pointed out that a computer did indeed exist. Finally got the advertised price.

    Neither one of us had ever been, and the experience is truly that -- an experience! There were young people, groups, families, individuals -- a fun scene. The waiter gave is a "tour" and another young man who seemed to be like a host kept checking in and answering questions for us as we selected our food. The cooks were entertaining and let me take a picture of my colleague with him -- we were celebrating a milestone for her. Can't wait to go back.

    We had a fun time for a birthday outing with family and friends. It was a little loud with several college groups there, but we were still able to have private conversations at our table. Building your own meal was fun, and the staff at the grill made it an experience to remember. Overall, I would recommend especially if you are looking for a unique experience and a night out with friends.

    my husband and I wanted to try something new and heard great reviews of this place but it definitely wasn't a great date night. It wasn't easily accessible, it was very loud, crowded, and much to close to other customers. We missed a lot of foods in the market place because there were so many people that kept getting in the way and not being courteous of others and not much order. the food was good and so were the drinks and for a good price. If we try again we may try a different location and/or a different time of day or day of the week. i think it is more of a group outing place rather than a date night place

    F&I has a great lively atmosphere that can be a little loud at times, but it's just due to everyone having such a goo time. The food situation is unusual in a good way. It's a Mongolian BBQ, you select all the food you want from a raw bar, and they cook it on a giant circular grill infront of you with your choice of sauce. The flavor combinations are endless, and the staff very entertaining. F&I is a great value, with great food, and staff. Just don't get stuck on one combination, the fun is always trying new flavors.

    Food was very good. Went with a family of 6. Not worth the money for my 7 year old who basically ate a hot dog, but the older kids really enjoyed it. Not a place I would have expected to eat a burger, but it was amazing. Salad bar was very fresh. I expected the cooks to be interactive, but the extent of that was telling people where to place their bowl. Good variety of meats, vegetables and pasta. Not thrilled with the flavor of sauces to try. Server came frequently to remove our plates, refill drinks, etc.

    We went here for my birthday and were seated right away because of our reservation. This was not our first time here and we will keep coming back. This time and every other time, we have had nothing but exceptional service. We need our food cooked separately from everyone else's and it was always fast and never a problem. At some places you have to practically beg to track down your server, but not at Fire + Ice. There are plenty of staff everywhere all the time and it was no problem if we needed something just to ask any of the staff. It is a very open, relaxing atmosphere. We even saw some people dancing in the aisles!

    Chaotic, noisy are the first considerations. The food should be placed in the bowl (all together), and then handed over to cook with favorite sauce, and cook it all together in the kitchen plate. Then put the sauce over. In the end all tastes undefined. Upon entering the room there is a written warning to be very careful with purses and values. Maybe in the past there have been thefts, because in the gloom and confusion of the room would be possible.

  • Careful with children
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    While most restaurants have a children's menu, this one only has a price for children age 11 and under. If you bring an infant or toddler, as our party did, you will get charged that child's rate even if your infant or toddler just snacks off of your food plate. Additionally, a children's meal comes with soda, but if you want milk for your small child, that's a $3.00 charge. Next time we look for a brunch place for friends with small children, we're going to look elsewhere because this was a hassle. The food was great, but the service and the management were rude when questioned about the policy that they charge our party the full child's price for the 3 infants and toddlers.
