Diner Reviews
  • "Good sushi. But my salad, which did not even come with chicken in it on the menu looked old and had chicken in it as if they reused an old salad to make mine. The salad also had so much orange in it You could taste nothing else, I couldn't even eat it. As if that wasn't bad enough our oysters were gritty and obviously not appropriate for serving but we were still given 3 that were completely inedible, the ones that were edible were still of far lower quality than we expected from such a nice establishment. My sushi was Good but not enough to make up for my expensive yet wildly underwhelming meal. I wanted to love it but the kitchen seems unable to keep up with the kind of food they are trying to serve. And none of the staff made up for it"

  • "There was a lot of chit chatting of the employees behind the bar...That was a least of it...Took a long time to get the drinks and they weren't that busy...Ordering it also took a while but the best of it all after we finished out meal it sat in front of us for 20 minutes before someone even came over and asked if we wanted it wrapped...That was a little much. So he eventually came back and left again to get dessert menus. When bringing over my husbands coffee, this waiter did not use a tray and was trying to hold the coffee, cups and creamer which he put inside my husbands cup. I was a waitress and that was disgusting. So overall, the food was good."

  • "This is our neighborhood go to restaurant. We love that bread is not served! They have many clean choices. Consistently good. Staff is always very friendly. Nothing more to say."

  • "Business travelers should not be turned off by proximity to hotel. They are separately operated. Waiter was spectacular with excellent recommendations. Unique dishes. Only turn-off is the noise level. Difficult to hold conversations, but still enjoyable."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "As many said before, the place is really nice. As often happen, they took great care of the place, but the kitchen....I tried the "so-called" kobe burger, that had no flavor at all. The truffle parmesan fries I received where cold and the flavor was dead wrong, like they fried them twice. The BBQ ribs...simply out of a plastic container, dry, bald."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Started with the Crispy Calamari, they tender and flavorful. Ribeye was perfectly cooked, with a loaded baked potato (could be a meal). Do not recommend the monkfish, that was over cooked and dry. The service was very professional and attentive, glass was alway filled with water. Wine list, has a very good selection and wine is served at perfect temperature. Great place for a romantic dinner or family get together."

  • "I took my folks to this restaurant for their Anniversary while they were in town. I'd been there before and it was a good experience. This time the service was just horrible, the Hostess that showed us the table was fine, just the server "Jolene" , I wasn't looking for Silver service, but this was just appalling, more akin to being served ad a bad Diner."

  • "Shocked at how great this place was. NYC quality ambience, great for a date or family. Food is incredible. Try the tuna tartar. It's amazing. We tried about 8 things, they were all very good. Will recommend to everyone!"

  • "My wife and I dined here for the first time and we were very satisfied. The restaurant decor is very romantic and the food and presentation wonderful. There is an ample Sushi Bar of which my wife feasted on wonderful California Rolls. We shared Mussels Fra D'ovolo which were ample in number and probably the best I have ever tasted. There is a large selection of Beef, Poultry and Fish dishes on the menu and numerous specials that were offered. I chose the half-spring organic chicken which was delightful. We shall definitely return."

  • "Parmesan ruffle fries are excellent. They are very accommodating about switching out sides. Meals are pricey but the atmosphere is very nice."

  • "Great adult atmosphere, good service - my wife had the crab cake app and the caprese salad which was very good and I had the striped bass w/ asparagus which was well prepared and quite tasty."

  • "Housed in a Marriott Residence Inn on Chestnut Ridge Road in Montvale is a hidden gem of a dining establishment called Fire and Oak. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the service at Fire and Oak. The plate presentations could have been from an established 4 star restaurant. All of the ingredients were fresh and top notch in quality. Service was attentive and professional. I would frequent this restaurant again for the outstanding meal I had there this week. Worth a stop for lunch or dinner."

  • "Sushi presentation was nicest I have ever seen. Wait service was horrible. 3 of four dinners came out at once. The fourth dinner came out as the other three finished eating. Awkward, uncomfortable for my guests and for me. And you had to constantly flag someone down for water. To make it worse, the manager was not apologetic, but rather made a comment how everyone "cleaned their plate"... When the grouper dish finally came out, it was very undercooked... Embarrassing. Frustrating. Should have taken that dinner off the tab, or offered some restitution... An after dinner drink, desert on the house or some other form of expression of sincere apology... But nothing."

  • "As usual F&O was buzzing but we got our table OK. Service was friendly enough but not quite 'personal' for this price restaurant. Although they did swop a beer that we ordered but did not like...and not charge for it. Food was good as usual with excellently cooked steaks and great fries. They just need to do something about the noise levels which, at times, make it almost impossible to have a conversation."

  • "Love this restaurant. The food and service is top notch. The managers, Patrick and Joshua, frequently visit the tables to assure satisfaction. The hostesses are always accommodating and service is fast but never rushed. Menu choices are limited however there are several specials. Sushi is beautifully presented and portions large. Noise can be tough during the week but rarely an issue on weekends. Overall, superb. "

  • "This has become our favorite local spot for a family dinner out. The menu is diverse (something for everyone and a solid kids menu), the food is consistently good and the service is always impeccable. It's so nice to be taken care of by well trained professionals who are attentive to your needs and make every meal feel special. Especially good for large groups. "

  • "Disappointed After reading the reviews, we were disappointed dinning at Fire and Oak. The service was excellent; however the food was an issue. The seafood risotto was underdone and the grilled salmon was very overdone. The waitress was very nice about it, but it did spoil the dinner. I would not expect this at a place where the check was $93 with tip. The decor was new and very comfortable; the lighting was a bit too dark at our table. Hard to read the menu by candle light. The main reason I would not go back was the food. I think they need to pay better attention to how they are serving the dinners. It was not the quality of the fish, just bad preparation. We basically ate fries and split a desert, which were both great."

  • "From the bread to the dessert, Fire and Oak delivers. The food is delicious. The servers are always refilling water and soda. They are very attentive to the needs of each table. The manager, Joshua, roams the floor and introduces himself to the patrons, as does asst. manager, Patrick. We are often hardpressed to go elsewhere because very little rivals Fire and Oak's overall dining experience. Make sure you have a reservation. "

  • "We loved it! Every year, we treat our accountant to a "fine dining experience". I try to find an upscale restuarant that they don't know. Fire & Oak was impressive all the way around. We went in knowing that the acoustics are oddly loud but yet, this did not have a negative impact. The waiter recommend a wine, which was exactly perfect with our meals, the service was impecable, the food was amazing. The desserts and capucinos were stellar."

  • "Great idea to have a dj. We had a great time with the music. We will be there more times on Thursdays for sure. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "This was our second dinner here. The bar scene was hopping and vibrant. The 'pub' portion of the menu looked good and my wife chose much more wisely than I by having a salad and wrap but I was in the mood for a good steak and chose the bone in cowboy - big mistake - way over cooked and not a choice cut. On the plus side, the drinks were great and the service really friendly and attentive. We'll go back, but just tamp down our culinary expectations!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Decided to try this place out, being that it was close and a few of my friends had been and had been complimentary of the restaurant. Right off the bat we noticed how loud the place was, it was impossible to have a conversation at a normal volume, it felt like every other patron was yelling. Not sure if this was because it was later on a Saturday night, or what, but it made conversation a hassle. We ordered the bbq chicken lollipop appetizer, which was essentially chicken wings drumsticks shaved down so that the bone stuck out for easier handling, they were good, of unremarkable. I ordered the rib eye with the loaded baked potato as a side. I asked for medium well, it came out charred, salty potato. Probably won't be back."

  • "Food was ok. Over priced. Very loud! Rude waitress. Gratuity included, so not super attentive. My son didn't like his meal (it really was awful, grouper) and at end of our meal, at least 25 minutes after being served, our waitress finally came back and told him he should have said something and she would have replaced it. He is 12, and she made him very uncomfortable by saying HE should have done something. Not impressive! Would not go back."
