  • Nice surprise!

    Great cocktails, delicious food and wonderful service. We went in knowing nothing about this place and were very pleasantly surprised! As much as I try to branch out, I can't usually resist getting pad thai--so I have had a lot of pad thai, and this was fabulous!

    Chef and menu a 9.5 out of 10.0-- absolutely delicious striped bass and ginger apple dessert as part of New Year's Eve menu. Food and ambience worth the trip in the cold to the city. Service staff, whilefriendly, could use more coaching. Overall wonderful experience, will return soon.

    Fire and Ice is beautifully decorated with a really nice bar. The happy hour deals are exceptional and the mix of Asian and American cuisine was fun and delicious. I love Korean food, so I was happy to see some Korean fusion dishes on the menu. The service was very friendly and quick. The bar filled up almost immediately on Friday night and it got very loud, but since we were eating at the bar, we should have anticipated that. I will definitely be going back to try out more food on the menu. The prices were very reasonable--many times less than $10 for an entree.

    I have been to a lot of places for restaurant week and I honestly have to say fire and ice has been my worst experience. The salad I got was lettuce with hot sauce and pork rinds. The chicken pad Thai was so dry I couldn't even eat it ... And the dessert donuts were hard as rocks and tasted worse than stale dunkin donuts munchkins. The walls of the restaurant were plain and boring and the vibe was horrible. I hope whoever takes this review seriously because I would never ever come back to this place and I have already steered friends away who asked me about it. The quality of food there was just so bad and my overall dining experience was horrible. When I got there I honestly couldn't wait to go home.

    Beautiful new Bar/restaurant in Old City serving Thai food. Despite being served the next table's food three times, the service was amazing. Zelda, our server, was friendly and always has what we needed. My only complaint is the seating is a little tight, especially behind the bar. My entree was not as warm as I would've liked, but it was delicious. The caramel apple martinis were outstanding. Despite the "problems," it was still one of my better dining experiences. I'll return.

    So sad that this restaurant has lost it's way. Curry Chicken was filled with potato fillers and was bland and nearly meatless. Grilled vegetables were pleasant and well prepared - but overtook the remainder of the meal. Bartender service especially was friendly, but when the salad course was entirely missed and served after the main entree' we were miffed. Waiter was focused on his buddies out on the curb side - seemed perplexed that we were concerned with the order of the dishes. Great location - maybe the owner is only going after the night club business?? Look for the "For Rent" sign soon.

    Nice atmosphere and modern, dark lighting. Went with 3 coworkers and we thought it might be nice for groups or first dates. Food was good and priced right for the quality. We were concerned about the new staff and their learning professionalism....provide more training on the menu!!

    Recently dined at Fire and Ice on a Saturday night, but were surprised that there were very few people in the dining area. A much larger area to the back of the building was a club or lounge, which had not opened yet. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was very, very tasty. With such a yummy selection, it was surprising that not more attention/space was given to the dining area as opposed to the night club. Overall, it was a nice spot for dinner in the city; I think that Fire and Ice would benefit from deciding on a direction (either restaurant or night club) and focus a bit more on establishing their identity. They have a great staff and some talent in the kitchen, so they have nice potential.

    I found this restaurant through Living Social, as we are sushi enthusiasts I wanted to try it. The food was really good, it was quite dark and the music was pretty loud at first. I would say it is more a bar/club than a restaurant but we had a good diner.

    We had a living social deal and chose to take my bosses out. They were very accommodating to our deal and helped us understand it. All the staff were very fun, personable and great characters. The food was delicious, but I couldn't quite figure out the scene. Things were dropped multiple times, someone was pacing while feeding a baby and it a had a busy feel while being pretty empty. I was also inspired to play laser tag. It was a good experience, and I'm sure i'll find myself there again.

    Not many diners in the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food arrived promptly. The only thing that made our time less enjoyable was the very loud and rowdy group of women at the bar. Halfway through our dinner they left which made it a much more pleasant experience.

    Charming host and service, interesting atmosphere, lots of fun things to try on the menu (Asian-Fusion app's and small plates, as well as more traditional Asian fare), and really reasonable prices make this a great place to stop in for a drink and snacks or a full meal. There's also a dance club in the back, we were there too early to see what it was like. Our appetizers included the special of the night, sauteed marinated chanterelles with truffles and onions on crostini, which was really delightful. Staff was a little inexperienced but pleasant and aimed to please.

    A gamble on a new restaurant with friends whose tastes we really didn't know paid off handsomely. Everything from the (Saturday evening!) Happy Hour small bites through to the main dishes were inventive, well-designed and wonderfully tasty. The service was swift, accurate and careful. Absolutely recommended.

    I'd hoped this would be like "Pod East" and while the cooking is good, it's not a "wow." The servers were all very nice and helpful. I think this is really more a club/nightspot that happens to serve good food in moderate portions than a true restaurant. If you are starving you'll have to order ALOT of food to fill up, but at least everything was nicely prepared. Oddly, my Apple Martini tasted more of Frangelica than apples, but hopefully that won't happen on my next visit.

    We had an amazing time!. I attended a fundraising for the Liver Foundation in Philadelphia a few weeks back. It was a great event where tables of 12 had their own restaurant / chef cook for them. At the last minute the restaurant that we were supposed to have backed out and left the foundation high and dry. The team at Fire and Ice was contacted 5 hours before the event and asked if they would be interested in filling the void...Graciously they agreed!! I'm so glad they did! Kim the owner, Chris the chef and their team did an incredible job. I was so impressed that I went to the restaurant Saturday night with my kids. We let Chris loose on a tasting menu for us. What an experience! Cant wait to go back! Highly recommend it!!

    We booked for the Mother's Day Brunch. They were not ready to serve or accommodate our party when we arrived for our reservation. The table wasn't ready nor was the buffet. We had to wait for almost 20 minutes before we were approached after seating by the wait staff. Part of the problem was that the buffet was far from being ready to present to the guests. While the food was decent, the entire experience reeked of inexperience. They were aware our family was unhappy and while they scrambled to try and rectify the situation, they didn't really do "anything" for us. They shouldn't have presented themselves for a MD location if they couldn't deliver. I'll not return.

    Great for gluten free and veggie. The fish portion was very small with a lot of rice. The chef puts tons of taste into each bite so we didn't mind. But, if you really like fish, chicken or beef note the portions are small.

    I went to this place to celebrate my birthdate w/ a few friends, and we all LOVED IT!!! The main chef (Chris) came out to greet us, and made suggestions, clarified certain items on the menu (he had just changed the menu two weeks prior). The proportions were decent, prices were reasonable, and the staff was very friendly!!! I would totally go here again!!!

    Dined on 2/16/2013
    First time here, place was DEAD at 7:30pm on a Saturday (guess it's more of a nightclub scene). Nevertheless the food was very good, small portions but really tasty. We went on Valentines Day weekend, so there was a special going on ($40 per person for app, dinner & dessert with free champagne). But the specialty drinks are CRAZY expensive & obviously not priced out on the menu- totally jacked the price of our bill from $80 to $130 (and I had one drink, my boyfriend had 2). I think my drink was $12 and his were $16 each, ouch. Probably won't go again but it wasn't a bad experience. Probably more fun to come later at night too.

    I happened upon this place because my friend is a Vegetarian and this was the closest restaurant with availability and some dishes that he would like. I was pleasantly surprised by the vibrant decor and the delicious food. My only complaint is that the menu is a bit limited but I was told that it would be expanding as the business grew.
