I have been to this restaurant
many times. It's a favorite for me and a friend. Service is always excellent though this time the waitress was not too friendly at first, then more friendly later. Our choices for lunch were new for both of us, but as usual, they were quality meals, as always."

New menu items same great service.
Our waiter remembered us from a few months ago. Have priced desserts on Sunday, try the warm apple walnut crumble!"

Fire & Sage is my go to place for
lunch meetings. The noise level is low enough that you can have a normal discussion without raising your voice, even with the tv's going and other diners near. The food is served quickly and is excellent. My favorites being the shrimp ceasar and the crab and corn chowder."
Dined on 2/20/2014
The menu changed dramatically,
which was reflected by the restaurant being completely empty. The usual comfort foods that were offered disappeared. The new menu is not very good."
Dined on 2/18/2014
The food was good...however, the
menu shown online was incorrect. The reason the restaurant was chosen was because of the varied offerings...and plenty of them. When we arrived at the restaurant, the menu contained only a small portion of what was shown online."

Just arriving to be seated, the
reservation area was very impressive and plenty of space."
Dined on 2/9/2014
The food is not the reason to go
here; it wasn't bad for a hotel, but just could use a little more attention to detail. My chicken breast was dry and the risotto was undercooked, but all that being said, our server Bill was OUTSTANDING. He gave great attention to us and seemed thoroughly engaged in our patronage. He informed us he had been with the company for a number of years, and it showed. I left a great review with management because he truly did such a good job. Even with mediocre food, a restaurant can redeem itself with great service. Case in point."

I received my soup and entree in a
very timely fashion and it was delicious"

Lodged inside the Marriott Metro
Center Hotel, Fire & Sage has a built-in clientele, but remains largely unknown in a neighborhood bursting with more ostentatious eateries like Bibiana & Cap City Brewhouse across the street. That only means that you can always get a table here, but the food is healthy, original, savory and affordably priced, which to me spells secret neighborhood gem. My favorite dishes are the beet salad and the flatbread pizzas, but other dishes are also delicious."
Dined on 1/28/2014
Ask to sit in the back of the
restaurant as sitting in the front area means you catch the draft of cold air every time someone opens the hotel doors. The food is really good, and I really liked the mango raspberry sorbet."

We were looking for a place for a
bite to eat before attending a show at the Warner Theatre, and found Fire and Sage on line. When we arrived, we were quite surprised to find the restaurant was part of a hotel - which would never be my first choice to dine. However, our server was extremely knowledgable about the food and drink offered, and she was pleasant and professional and really made us feel welcome. The food came to us quickly and was delicious - from the corn and crab chowder to steaks and chicken, all cooked to order and timely. Would definitely go again, and it's changed my mind from anti-hotel eating to lets try it!"

We booked this based upon the
recommendation of Open Table and were fairly disappointed, although my 12 year old really seemed to enjoy it. Did not realize when we booked it that it was the hotel restaurant for the Marriott. Crab Cakes were disappointing, although we tried crab cakes at three DC restaurants and did not care for any of them, so it may be a regional taste we do not care for. It was a slow night so we were basically seated in the bar area which was not really appropriate when we had the kids. A group of 20 somethings came in for drinking and it was just not really a good mix."

Food is obviously institutional,
burgers are frozen, not handmade, fries the same."

I love the atmosphere and
customer-friendliness of the employees"

What you would expect from a hotel
restaurant. Located in the Marriott Metro Center, Fire & Sage is a welcome location for a low key lunch. Food is mediocre and service about the same. All in all, this is a mediocre spot, but not bad if you are staying in the hotel."
Dined on 10/17/2013
I went to Fire and Sage for lunch
last week to have a business discussion with an acquaintance. Since he was on the Orange line and I was on the Red it was a convenient location as it is less than a block from Metro Center and I knew the location from having stayed at and gone to functions at the Marriott (the restaurant is just off the lobby). The restaurant met all of my expectations for a quick convenient business lunch but I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. My grilled chicken Caesar salad was significantly above average with warm thin sliced chicken breast and a delicious and unusual topping of a bit of thin strips of onion battered and fried - serious dieters may want to ask for this to be on the side :-)"
Dined on 12/12/2013
Not a fancy restaurant, Fire &
Sage, but the cuisine is a nice example of modern American healthy and savory cuisine, featuring many original and delicious salads, flatbread pizzas and healthy sides like grilled asparagus. It's definitely a neighborhood gem when compared to either the overpriced fancy restaurants or the low-brow fast food outlets that populate the Metro Center area. The seats and tables are warm and comfortable and the service is always incredible polite and alacritous."

Our server Bill was very
accomodating. After we arrived a member of our party asked if we could use the private dining room and the staff quickly set up a table for us and let us use the room. Bill answered all of our questions, was very patient and great with recommendations. We all enjoyed our food and the experience. A big thank you to Bill!"

Went here for our five year
anniversary as it was near our DC office. The food was well-prepared and presented and tasted fine. The notable part was the staff and service. They were friendly, accommodating and knowledgable about the menu. We will be coming back here for drinks at the bar."
Dined on 10/18/2013
Very pleasant and low key. Came
here before a Caps game and got away from the herd of people near Verizon Center restaurants--a great decision. A quiet dining experience--good food, pleasant environment, an attentive wait staff. Would definitely come back. An exceptional value for this part of Washington."
Dined on 10/14/2013
This place is an embarrassment to
the Marriott brand.. I wanted to try something different on a night of celebration with my girlfriend, and we were very disappointed. Hostess was rude, waitress was slow and incompetent, and the food and drinks were subpar. I really don't know how this place was highly rated."
Dined on 10/12/2013
We didn't want to walk too far and
wanted to avoid a cab, so we walked to F&S. It had a good atmosphere, and the food was great without being too overpriced. The Crab/Corn soup was excellent, as was the entree (New York Strip and risotto) and cheesecake. Will definitely return!"
Dined on 10/6/2013
So grateful to have such a good
bar and restaurant right in our hotel. I almost never eat in a hotel but was traveling with my elderly mother and aunt and wanted to minimize the amount of walking they did. Was so pleased with the menu selections, quality of food and the very affordable wine selection."
Dined on 9/21/2013
A very pleasant dining
experience--good food....good quality....good service--and at a very reasonable price. With some pricey restaurants very nearby, Fire & Sage offers a very nice venue with good food at a reasonable price. The servers are very attentive and you couln't ask for a more pleasant experience."
Dined on 9/25/2013
The food at Fire & Sage was
good--not spectacular, but definitely good and particularly good for the price."
Dined on 9/26/2013
We chose it for dinner because it
was near our hotel and it got good reviews on TripAdvisor, but maybe we hit a bad night . The menu wasn't the same as on the TripAdvisor site, so I couldn't order my first choice, a ribeye steak. I settled for a skirt steak sandwich. Skirt steak is usually marinated into a tenderness that doesn't come naturally and is usually very flavorful. Not this time. My husband's crab cake sandwich was only fair--a big serving, but lots of bread crumbs. The wines were expensive even by the glass and not that good. The fries and mashed potatoes were good, but we could have gotten good fries at McDonalds and spent way less than $75! Our waitress was almost too friendly till questioned about something, then not at all!"
Dined on 9/24/2013
Away from the predictable chains
and busy food truck crowds, I found Fire & Sage ambiance and menu a perfect retreat fir lunch in downtown DC. They agreeably let me choose the table I wanted and quickly answered a question about ingredients in a menu item. The food was fresh and tasty and the menu creative. Just steps from the metro and offices, so very convenient for tourist, workers and shoppers!"
Dined on 9/3/2013
Needed a nice place for a birthday
dinner, but didn't want the crowds or wait times for the trendy spots. Food was great, service was amazing, and we had a wonderful evening."
Dined on 8/28/2013
Great food, great service. All in
all it was an wonderful experience. The only item that took away from the dining experience was the seating - we were seated close to the hotel lobby, we didn't realize Fire & Sage was attached to the Marriott. It wasn't bad, but the entire restaurant is open to the hotel lobby, which does take away slightly from the experience, but the food and staff were still amazing!"
Dined on 8/24/2013
The name of this restaurant
attracted me as well as the menu but to be honest I was disappointed. There was no ambience to go with the great name and it was very loud."
Dined on 8/20/2013
It seams the service staff have
better things to do. We saw our sever maybe 4 times. The food was good though. However I wanted a wood fired pizza and they don't do them after 4pm"
Dined on 8/17/2013
I very much enjoyed my evening at
Fire & Sage. The food was top-notch and the service was excellent. Not an easy combination to find nowadays! I also appreciated that the restaurant was not too noisy. You can conduct a conversation without having to yell at your dining companions and the tables aren't spaced too closely together. I recommend it for a pleasant dining experience!"
Dined on 8/7/2013
This is the first time I've been
there for dinner. I was delighted to discover the same welcoming service and great kitchen. The people at this hotel restaurant go out of their way to ensure that each diner is happy, and that keeps me coming back."
Dined on 8/6/2013
When we ordered, we had specify no
fryes in one of the orders and it came with fryes. Also the hamburger were not well done as requested. There was not much flavor also. A little bit dissapointed."
Dined on 8/5/2013
This restaurant was far more
casual than our group was expecting and it was situated right off the lobby more open to it than I would have preferred. While the food was okay, it was not spectacular. The service was most friendly and prompt. This place is great for hotel guests who want a quock breakfast or lunch, with or without children, but for outsiders looking for something much nicer other than a quick and casual more family feel, this would not be the place. Cure at the Hyatt is much better."
Dined on 6/23/2013
This restaurant is in a hotel so
you wouldn't think you would get the quality of food we did. I had a great pasta dish with prawns & crab and my husband had a nice steak with prawns. The quality of the food and the preparation were both excellent. Service was good, not doting, but I prefer that to having a server hover over you. Ambience was nice, it's an open format with bar/dining/kitchen all together so not a romantic hide away, but fun decor and not overly loud (depending on who's in the bar I guess). I'd go again tonight!"
Dined on 6/16/2013
It was a first time visit for my
friend so I thought it would be great for his birthday dinner. Everything from the food to specialty mixed persondrinks were a pleasant surprise. Although we dine out often, I originally choose Fire and Sage since he is a seafood person (fried shrimp and fries) but he liked the overall selection and went with something different and delicious. The service was excellent and we didn't have t ask for anything. It was a wonderful evening and look forward to returning."
Dined on 6/13/2013
I have been to Fire and Sage
before for happy hour, which is great. We went for dinner with another couple and it was good. I can't complain out my food, the portions were big, it tasted good, and it wasn't tooo overpriced. But it was nothing more than good. It's not to rave about but I can't complain either. One thing to note, the menu online says they have pizzas...they don't! Also I wished they had a soup and salad dinner combo, because both of those items are overpriced on their menu!"
Dined on 6/9/2013
As soon as Bill, our waiter, knew
that we were going to the Kennedy Center to see Showboat, he (magically, or so it seemed) made our meals appear in minutes. It was great! We were eating our dinner with time to spare. We had the salmon and the scallops, and the food melted in our mouths. Thanks to the chef and to Bill. We were very pleased."
Dined on 5/25/2013
I had the scallop salad which was
great and our waitress was very nice but both my father's and sister's meals came out cold. They also sat us in the front of the bar so we were watching people check in to their room as we ate - not an ideal setting."
