  • "We went with seven 14 year olds for a birthday party, the boys had a great time, the food was fun and delicious, the waiter was wonderful!"

  • "I've been to Fire and Ice before (in Providence) and it's pretty straight forward. Had a typical (good) experience but the waitress was a little rude. She was pretty dismissive and while I didn't mind too much my girlfriend was offended. It won't keep us from coming back, but being a little friendlier to customers would be nice."

  • "food not that good, its not what i thought it would be, its more like a big high school cafeteria, really not good for going out on special occasions, more for a casual dining if you dont mind waiting a long time to pick out ur food then watch them cook it... i can do that at home. Disappointed."

  • "I took my wife to Fire & Ice in Harvard Sq for her birthday. The experience was great! The concept of creating your own meal is fun ad the food was great! Our server, Vincent, was excellent! He took the time to explain to us newbies the dining experience. He was incredibly helpful and was attentive to all our needs. If you go, ask for him! Chazmo"

  • "Another fun night with a small crowd of 6 dining. Service was fine. Food was fresh a prepared nicely on the grill. Everyone at the table enjoyed themselves and we look forward to coming back soon. It's a perfect place for large parties and for teenagers/young adults to frequent with friends for events."

  • "It was very good, except for the part that the waitress got $40 on tip when she didnt do anything. I found myself asking for refills a couple times... But it was great !"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Never been before. A few friends and I decided to go before a show at the Sinclair next door. It was awesome! There is something for every one! Service was fast and it's fun to create something and then watch it get grilled. I would recommend to start off with something small because you will end up wanting to create something you saw another guest create."

  • "A couple of friends took me out to Boston for a birthday dinner celebration and asked me what restaurant I wanted to go to. I remembered a couple of friends and clients at my work place telling me about how GREAT Fire+Ice is. I was curious and decided to give it a try. Anyway, I was SO happy we ate here. The atmosphere was fun and inviting, especially for the type of friends I was bringing. The staff was nice and helpful and the food was amazing. The drinks came to us quick and were delicious. Although we were a bit confused on how the food process worked, we got the hang of it. (My suggestion is don't get too little on the first plate, get a lot and be daring!) Overall, my experience was GREAT and everyone loved it!"

  • "Very pleased with customer service orientation of staff both in advance and the day of my daughter's party. Festive so perfect for the Sweet 16 Party."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Fire + ice is a great interactive experience & awesome if you like having full control over what/how much you're eating. The only downside is I would not reccomend it to anyone with a food allergy or sensitivity because everything is cooked on the same grill & often touches other food (I ended up with a potato from my husbands dish in mine). Definitely a good time!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "This was a first-time visit at Fire + Ice for many in our group - It was very enjoyable, the waiter assigned to us provided great service and the host was exceptionally helpful. My only suggestion is that Fire + Ice add more photos of the restaurant space, including function rooms, so that large groups can decide on proper seating arrangements in advance."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "I love the choices! Food is a little above average. Kind of pricey is you do not eat alot"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We had a great dinner at Fire + Ice. My friends and I used to go all the time when we were in college. It was a fun reunion and the food and drinks were great as usual. We loved the new garlic rolls!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food it self was fabulous but, I think for the prices; they should at least still serve the rice and wraps to your table instead of having to get them ourselves. I usually like to tip a waiter/waitress at least 20% for service but, what service are they really providing me except getting me something to drink. Fire + Ice in Cambridge, I would suggest taking the T, cab or parking somewhere other than the lot across the street as it will cost you more than your meal."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Based on the website, I was looking forward to mussels with fresh basil and ribs. They had none of those things. What they had was very basic (chicken breast, beef, sausage), nothing that I could not put together at home. All in all I wondered why anybody would want to stand around and wait for their food to be cooked, when it came out unexceptional yet pricey. Maybe it was because it was "college night" and they were offering cheap meals to college kids? If that was why they brought nothing interesting out, then why did I pay full price?"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Great for teenage and college crowd. Not a fine dining establishment. Cooking/flavor quality are in line with pub chain food. Bonus for teenagers and twenty something is "all you can eat" for a very good price."

  • "Was a fun night for my kids and I. Food ok not a place you go for fine dinning."

  • "lots of fun to go and get whatever you want to eat. Nice to make your own food, then have someone cook it for you"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "I love Fire + Ice. The food is great (partly because you make exactly what you want!) and they have some fun drinks on their cocktail menu. I went on a Saturday night at 8 and I really suggest against going at this particular time. On our first trip up, the grill/food bar area was mobbed and there was no one to direct the mass of people. A long line formed, but there's not usually a line so Fire + Ice regulars weren't obeying the spontaneous line, which made the people in line irritated. It would have helped to have a staff member there to control the situation. But by the time we got our food and ate, the second trip up was a breeze because there were far fewer people trying to make bowls."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "It was a surprise as we though the food will be seasoned and grilled. It is too confusing to pick your own season and spices and sauce - not a place for us"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Fire & Ice's offerings allowed adults as well as kids to be creative in their combinations. Something for everyone. No wait for seating and very little waiting for a spot on the grille. The all-you-can-eat pricing was a pleasant surprise for the mother of a 12 year old boy who only eats meat and went back three times for steak with Italian dressing! I would highly recommend this restaurant and intend on returning with out of town friends in the coming weeks."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "They held our reservations even though we were a bit late but parking across the street was a hassle. It was very crowded and finding open tables for us took awhile. The waiter was working hard but he would forget our order and bring us the wrong drinks. I would recommend the Boston location for special night but as a casual lunch/dinner occasions, this would be good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Fire & Ice was a great first-time experience. The best part was putting your own meal together! Grab a bowl and pick your entree, vegetables, herb and spices and bring up the grill. The chef cooks the food right in front of you. Great for those who are leery about restaurant food; you eat what YOU put together. We will go back the next time we are in town. BTW... Did I mention it is all you can eat? Husband and son went up three times and really enjoyed the fish and seafood."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "We made 7:30 reservations and still had to wait over 20 minutes for a table. The entryway was packed with large groups, so it was difficult even to get the attention of the host to let them know we had arrived. While the food was good, it was so frenetic in the restaurant, and there were so many people trying to fill their bowls or stand around the grill waiting for their food to cook, it made for a stressful evening. I'd suggest going during "off hours" to have a more enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Fire and Ice was the perfect place to throw a surprise birthday for my boyfriend and his friends. The person in charge of events (Dan) was incredibly accommodating and gave me great advice about seating, ambiance, special birthday treats for the guest of honor, dividing the check for a large group and even ordering a cake! The event was a complete success and the guys at the grill even sang for my boyfriend (to be fair, the whole restaurant sang to him thrice!). The food was pretty decent -- it's a buffet style spot so you can have your fill of any pasta, salad, burger (and depending on the day, pizza) or dessert (extra) of your choice!"
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Brought a bunch of kids....they loved picking out their own foods. The waitress was just not very good (forgot drinks, did not come by) and then since we were a group of 8, there was a forced tip...and even double charged us!"

  • "Saturday night to celebrate my daughters birthday because it's her favorite restaurant. busy place but had reservations. Kathia is very pleasant and welcoming to all. 2 girls turned to walk away after hearing wait is 45 mins but Kathia added "you can sit at the bar and still eat from there". The girls smiled and followed Kathia. The other hosts looked confused and seemed to be too busy to bother with courtesys but they might be in training. The FOOD is fresh, plentiful, and a good variety. The rice was a little mushier than before but still tasty. My only complaint is the bar can only be accessed on ONE side which is a nightmare when very busy. Parking inHarvard square practically impossible."

  • "My husband and I had been looking forward to going to Fire and Ice for a very long time. We typically go to the Boston location, tough came to Cambridge so we could pair it with a show. We were greeted by a fraction of the energy of the Berkley St location. Upon going up to get out food, we both commented on the poor layout of the food selections, making it difficult to know how to fill our bowls. Items just weren't where they would have made sense, thus not being able to find the typical items you would want until it was too late. As for the drinks, my margarita was great, but my husband was nearly sick from one drink of his rum and coke. It took an entire large soda to mix with his drink to get the proportions right."

  • "Create your own custom dishes and eat as much as you like. Good selection of quality ingredients. Very nice chefs and servers. Music was good but a bit loud. Place was not busy at 6pm, but picked up as it got later. Good place to visit for special occasion. Good for gluten free choices and help by staff."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "It's something different, then any other place to eat. Pick exactly what you want, and a flavor. Or multiple flavors, and they cook it up for you."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "They were great. Pick your ingredients and the cooks will make your dish for you. Very reasonably priced for an all you can eat affair. Went with a group of 20 with mostly 11-12 year old kids and we all had a good time. Lots of fun."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I hadn't been to the Cambridge fire + ice but to the one in Boston and the Cambridge one was not like what I recall the Boston location to be. The food choice was ok but still love the option of creating your own unique meal! My husband had never been so we decided to try this location. They had run out of a draft beer selection which seemed odd as it was fairly early in the evening. Staff was ok, not over the top friendly but never the less there should you need them. The patrons were of a much younger crowd, late to early teens and twenties, def not a date place nor a girls night out type of dining experience."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I love Fire and Ice when I know I'm going out with a large group. With all the options I know even my super picky friends will find something, and we don't feel like a super burden on a waiter when there 15+ of us. Also, the Fire and Ice bowls are a fun and tasty way to start the night!!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Similar to Fire + Ice in Boston, but seemed to be missing some items that were available at the other location. The Cambridge location seems more spacious though, and it wasn't too busy when we went on New Year's Eve."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Food was great, price was right (surprise prix-fixe at 16.99, which was cheaper than some of the options on the menu and FAR cheaper than other restaurants' New Years prices -- and all-you-can-eat!). Had a great time."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have been to Fire and Ice several times over the years. The service was good this time, food was fine, but the place really needs to spruce up and clean up. The Boston location seems to have a more pleasant atmosphere."
