    I've been in Jersey City for 5 years and it's one of the most consistent places to go. The food is good and the staff is friendly. I think it has great potential for more (like a nice upscale restaurant) with notable wines.

    Food was generally good, one dishes was a bit disappointing but the other was wonderful. It was a busy night, with a few service miscues- got served a rum and coke instead of a diet coke and a few other bobbles, but all were fixed quickly. Not sure if it's worth the price for the higher end dishes, but nice space and staff tried hard to make things right.

    Took my wife here for lunch on a weekday afternoon. Had a little trouble with the valet who refused to park the car unless I had exact change to pre-pay. That was rude. The food itself is just ok... Not bad for lunch. The service though was lackluster; our server had no personality and she wasn't attentive in any way really. I could give her a pass because she had only been there 4 months but still I have to put it on the management for not training their people properly. My wife and I really enjoy great atmosphere, great service and great food and always give credit where credit is due. In the case of Fire & Oak, they need to improve their credit score. We don't have plans to go back.

    Nice ambiance. A little noisy. Tuna tartar tacos were a treat. French fries sprinkled with shaved garlic were really tasty. Very large portions. All our entrees were very good. Service was very good. My only complaint is that the restaurant added a 20% gratuity. Sorry but that is supposed to be my prerogative. I would go there again but probably would order less and share more!

    The food would probably have been quite nice if it was severed hot. It was lukewarm to cold. The tuna tarter tacos which should have been cold were warm. The waiter never once asked how our food was.

    From the drink spilled on my guest (and later, dirty silverware and food from the plate being taken up by the server -- all on the same guest) to the all-but-inedible food that came out of the "kitchen," it was a place to remember for all the wrong reasons. Everything overcooked and, paradoxically, nothing hot. Think heat-lamp. The $38 steak was tough and flavorless. And the 10 oz filet? -- maybe 4 oz butterflied to look larger. Potatoes were wrong (in all senses) and "fresh vegetables" were some carrot sticks and asparagus tossed with hot oil. There was a piece of cake on the floor near our table the entire time. No redeeming qualities that we experienced, and we couldn't wait to get out of there.

    The food was very good the service impeccable. The noise level made it very difficult to converse with everyone at the table. Though we asked several times if the music could be turned down, (they did turn it down once) it was still very loud. Other than the music, I would recommend this restaurant.

    We frequent this place because we get good food, drinks and service for the price. On this visit we had calamari, ribs, truffle parmesan fries, tuna and bubblies. Tuna was flavorful, but the stir-fried vegetables were overly cooked. Ribs were awesome. The portions here are big so we had some leftovers. Our serve was nice and packed our food to go neatly. We will be back.

    We had an early dinner so that the service was good. The waitress came by often to ensure that everything was OK. I had a Greek salad which was fresh. My salmon came with spinach and mashed potato, but oily. I should have asked the chef to not to use butter. My colleagues and I had a good dinner.

    I took my husband here for father's day. It did not disappoint. The French Toast was fabulous. My husband had the braised short rib skillet. Both excellent. They offered a nice child's brunch menu as well. Atmosphere was dimly lit but still really nice and romantic, great experience and our server was great.

    We had an 8:30pm reservation Friday evening. Even though the server was friendly and available, we did not see any food or drinks for over 45 minutes after sitting down. The meal dragged for over 2 1/2 hours, drink orders took 20 minutes to fill and then only partially. We had to constantly inquire when we could expect to see some food then magically it would begin to appear shortly thereafter. We've eaten in this restaurant before and did not encounter these problems, the icing on the cake was when the manager offered to buy me a drink instead of my entire party at the end of the meal. What was he thinking? My guests were just as disgusted as I was; weren’t they entitled to some acknowledgment of the poor service they received as well?

    The restaurant has a taverny appeal. The meatballs were very good as was the herbed chicken. The tuna with the soba noodles left a lot to be desired and was not a dish that I would recommend. There are too many really good places to eat for this place to be recommended. It was quite ordinary.

    Since I frequently dine out, there are several things that are not negotiable. Attention to the details. Quality of the food. Presentation of same I and atmosphere. While the location is hip, it lacks anything making it unique. The presentation of the food, while good Diner quality, didn't match it's PP (price point). Severing food at slightly above room temperature doesn't instill a sense of "cook to order" implications a restaurant offers. Servers, though pleasant, couldn't remember which side to serve from nor how to refill a water glass without significant body, facial and audible signal ques from my guests; ridiculous. Overall, I had a better experience at the worse Cheesecake Factory I visited recently.

    We were a group of seven, the restaurant was slow, and the waiter just could not get it right. Although there were specials he never offered them and two of the seven orders were wrong. Everyone has a bad day.... based on the simplicity of the orders coupled with the slow tempo this lunch was certainly disappointing on this day. In the past I have been there with groups of four or less and the experience was significantly better. I would suggest that if you have a larger group you may want to choose a different venue.

    The salad was excellent and showed attention instead of just mixing together ingredients. The calamari was cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth. The prime rib appeared to be seared on both side before serving, (to warm up?) and looked more like a steak. The fish on our fish sandwich was burnt and appeared to have been left on the grill too long or forgotten.

    I had lunch here a few days ago. The beet salad was excellent. I also had the sweet potatoe corn chowder and that was underwhelming. Sparse on the corn and was more brothy than what I typically like in a chowder. The chunks of sweet potatoe were very mushy. I wouldn't order it again. Over lunch the restaurant was loud. It was hard to talk with my client across the table. The service was pretty fast. You could definitely do lunch in 45 min - 1 hr.
