Fireside at Omni Berkshire -
Best Restaurants in Midtown East
Be careful if you come here on a
Sunday, they have a very very limited menu. The burger sliders are actually one burger cut into 4 and put on store bought potato rolls. The only thing really noteworthy here is the table smores, which you roast over a little fire pot at your table, very cute, but wouldn't come back just for that."

I came here with a friend during
restaurant week. The food wasn't all too impressive, and the seating was in the middle of a hotel lobby. It didn't feel like a restaurant, and its classy sophisticated nature had a calm atmosphere to it. No privacy, however, it being in the middle of a lobby and all. Waiters were mild-friendly because they knew we were college students."

When we sat down and started
talking the waiter just barged in to ask if we were ready to order.. Then when we needed him to take the order and at the end to pay, he was no where in sight... Good food but very very poor service."

We went on Christmas day 2013 for
breakfast buffet. Not out-of-this-world but the food was definitely better than the average buffet. Waiters took forever to bring water/coffee/juice. What was really astonishing is the automatic 18% gratuity that was added. There were 4 of us... And it was a buffet..."

The Fireside is a great restaurant
for any occasion. I have been here a couple of times, and each time the service and the food has been incredible. The staff is very friendly and dedicated to giving the guest the best dining experience possible. The food was very good and arrived soon after it was ordered. The atmosphere was warm, inviting, and elegant. I will be returning to dine here very soon!"

Excellent food, nice presentation
and great service."

Great place for a nice lunch. You
can actually have a conversation with the people at the table and hear them! Food was delicious; the reviews I read about their fish tacos were right on point. Salads and sandwiches were also enjoyed by all. A cozy, intimate restaurant which I would highly recommend for lunch or dinner."

I've dined at other Omni
properties and was looking forward to having a good dining experience at the Omni Berkshire. At the Berkshire I experienced an unhappy server, dirty dishes and staff arguing on the dining floor. I ordered soup that tasted as if it had been microwaved. (the center of the dish was warm and the exterior cool) I requested a cocktail for brunch and when I noticed the server's perplexed look I began to tell him the cocktail's ingredients He cut me off and told me that the bartender would know. Five minutes later the server returned stating the bartender had never heard of the drink and wanted to know the ingredients."

I try to visit Fireside on every
trip to New York for drinks and appetizers. It's a great place to meet friends and the surf tacos are a must. The service is always amazing and I will continue to come back!"

I have been coming to Fireside for
over two years now and I look forward to every visit. The menu is so fantastic, not really sure where to begin, but I'll start with apps. Many times I have gone with friends for drinks and appetizers, the surf tacos are the BEST fish tacos I have ever had and I've plenty. Pizzas are incredible with whole wheat dough available. Salads are delicious and the two handed BLTA is awesome! You really cant go wrong at this place - but rumor has it that they are taking away Fireside (where there is no fire) and putting in another steak house - just what the neighborhood needs :( So get yourself over there ASAP and enjoy!"

Fireside is a great low key place.
It feels hidden although it's connected to a hotel. The food was fantastic. Get the burger - it was the best I've ever had. Our waiter was delightful and brought us complimentary dessert."

While the hotel attached to the
restaurant was amazing (Omni Berkshire), the restaurant left something to be desired. If you do go for breakfast, be sure to order from the menu. My fiance and I paid for the $32 breakfast buffet (which comes to $40 after they include tax and tip), but it definitely left something to be desired. We arrived for our 10am seating to what looked like a great buffet. Once I investigated, the eggs were runny and the few pancakes that were left were hard and crunchy on the edges. The reason I say order from the menu is because when her omelet came out, it looked and tasted great! So word to the wise, avoid the buffet and order from the menu."

Service wasn't the best, waiter
didn't know the menu and wasn't very attentive. Food was mediocre at best. Over priced."

Went to dine for X-mas. Nice and
friendly staff, the food was delicious."

Excellent food and the waiter
Thomas was great. Everyone loved what they ordered and the drinks were enjoyable. I would come here again in a heartbeat."
Dined on 12/31/2013
The menu is very healthy,
creative, delicious, and the portions are just right. The waitstaff is always friendly. If you need a place that is midtown, quiet (you might not notice it because the entrance is on the street not off the avenue) and much more than a "cafe" table atmosphere then this is the place. The only thing that would make it (or keeps it from becoming a) a perfect business or a sophisticated dining experience is if they could successfully separate it from the lobby for more privacy. That's not a negative. It's just to let diners know what to expect from the physical spot. You're not immediately off the lobby but depending on where you sit you could be slightly aware of hotel guest traffic. It's not bad, just saying."

Went to Radio City with the
grandkids. Walked a few blocks east and happily was out of the tourist scene. Our table for 7 was being set. The room was filled with noisy holiday celebrants but we were able to talk and enjoy our meals. The room was really hopping. The prices are fair for mid town and the Childrens menu was a real plus. We ordered dessert and after a very long wait were told they had run out of chocolate and kindly offered to comp our new dessert orders. The staff was hardworking and very professional. The kitchen was a bit slow. My family was pleased with my choice. I will definitely go back."

The food was delicious & priced
within reason for NYC. Despite the restaurant offering a kids menu, it still had a mature, adult like atmosphere with romantic lighting and it made us all feel comfortable. Our kids are 11yrs old, (so they behave well). They were happy with the food - as were my hubby and I. The rice bowl and calamari were terrific. Only negative, the bar server seemed to be alone, (approx 7-8 tables at once) and he definately gave us decent service. We would've had another round of drinks, had he had the time to stop by more than 4 times in our visit, (take drink order ; Take dinner order; give us more water; & drop check). He was quite busy. OVERALL: We'd go there again."

A great find! Casual, cozy and so
accommodating. We took our children here before the Radio City Christmas Show. Walkable from Grand Central, close to Rockefeller Center. Food was very good. Kid friendly menu. Yummy desserts. Wait staff was so attentive and kind."

We were looking for a place to go
with our team of seven people. We are international, so wanted something that would appeal to a variety of tastes. We were able to reserve a room at the Fireside Grill quickly. They placed us in a semi-private room which was perfect. Excellent staff. Took our order with no notes and did not make a mistake. All the food was very good. I do recommend the Smores served over an actual 'fireside grill' (hot charcoals)."

We went as a group and took
platters to share, everything was delicious for a reasonable price. The inside of the restaurant was very nice, and service was great. Central location."

Enjoyed a reasonably priced lunch
(by New York City standards) in between business meetings in midtown. I would highly recommend -- all aspects were very good from food to setting to ability to conduct discussions with business colleagues."
Dined on 11/6/2013
The service at Fireside was very
accommodating and they worked with us to make a group event successful. The food was delightful so make sure to order enough platters to satisfy your guests. Note: The platters are smaller than expected so you probably need at least 10 platters for about 25-30 guests."
Dined on 9/9/2013
We meet at the Fireside once a
month for lunch. The food is always good. This past visit was feeling like the salmon salad and it had been removed from the menu. Had the Ceasar with chicken and it was an enjoyable meal."
Dined on 8/12/2013
Not a bad option for those staying
at the Omni and don't want to go far to find a bite. Of course, just beyond the hotel is Midtown Manhattan, with its plethora of choices. Food is odd mix of Mediterranean/Asian,but quite tasty if a little pricey. Ambience is typical modern hotel eatery style."
Dined on 7/23/2013
Food was definitely nothing to
write about -- just standard hotel fare. Definitely not what I was expect. Decor is pretty cool though."

Brought a customer there and we
had a great early lunch (sat us at 11:45). Good atmosphere, casual. Molding décor a little odd, but very nice. Food was excellent. Definitely a bit pricey at $130 for four so be ready for that."

Ambience was great and food was

I have been to Fireside many times
(my company has a special deal). While the service is generally slow, this is something I am prepared to work around given the convenience, nice space and good food. This time the service was not only slow but rude and abrupt. One of my colleagues was offered "chicken soup" verbally by the waiter. When a server brought "tortilla soup" she said it was not for her, because she asked for "chicken soup". This led to a conflict between the server and the waiter in earshot of the whole table. A minute later, the waiter explained that the tortilla soup was in fact chicken soup. He left and then the server rudely dumped the soup back in front of my colleague announcing "tortilla soup"."

This place was absolutely
outstanding. Food was tasty and service was on-point. Will definitely be back to visit Fireside again. The Surf Tacos were delicious!"

One of my go-to place for lunch.
Service and food are very good. The tomato soup is among the best I've ever had and recommend the Halal cart dishes."

less than ideal seating for a
group of 5. bench seating with worn out cushioning was not appropriate for a business breakfast setting"

Yummy menu, great small plates as

Great spot in midtown to have a
cocktail and a great menu for an after work crowd! This was my first time and recommended by a friend but I will definitely be coming back more often! Shiblee took great care of me and my guest in the bar area, thank you!"

We recently had a "going away"
event for a co worker at the fireside. This is a top notch place and although the prices are par for the neighborhood, the service is top notch. They had many options for our group and offered to have appetizers ready for us upon arrival. We had an area reserved just for us, and the staff was always there to make sure we had everything we needed. It was not noisy (actually we created the noise!)and we could actually have converstations. We will most definatley be returning for other events, and even for small things. Thank you to Justine, TJ and the staff for being so wonderful!"

So glad I stumbled upon this
place! The bartenders were friendly and attentive, the atmoshphere was the perfect escape from the loud and busy NY streets, and the food was amazing. I had the tuna tartare and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I will certainly be going back in the near future."

We go here for breakfast meetings.
Good food, good environment, close to office."
