Fire & Ice was a great venue
Fire & Ice was a great venue for my daughter's sweet 16 birthday. She and 7 friends really enjoyed the food and atmosphere . The location of Harvard square is absolutely perfect. Everyone had a great time.

Avianna's 16th Birthday Dinner
It was a Birthday Dinner we had a group of 10 . The music was perfect along with the atmosphere & selection of food.

Good food, but kids party noisy
Food was good as always. We were 4 adults who went there to eat for a birthday. We ended up with a group of 8 12 year olds celebrating one birthday. They were kind of crazy and very loud....typical for 12 year old girls. Just wish we hadn't been seated near them in more of a quite corner.

Great place for a group celebration
We were at the restaurant for a rehearsal dinner and it worked out beautifully for us. It was great that everyone could choose whatever they had a yen for, and the process of choosing salads and stir-fry ingredients gave everyone something to talk about. The only suggestion I would make is to seat large parties (16 in our case) in a quieter area to make conversation a little easier.

The only complaints I heard; the chicken was rubbery, and too many people caused our food to be slow.. But, some thought out waiter looked like vin diesel, so I think that made it worth it for them.

I took a bunch of employees out for lunch. The food was great, Cook was great. Our server didn't come around enough. We found our glasses empty often. But i guess that can happen when you already know what your tip will be since we had 10 people at our table.

Not what I was expecting. Was more of a 'hip warehouse' atmosphere than a romantic dinner. The chefs did pour the wrong sauce on some of the dishes, but that kind of mistake is understandable and easily remedied. Wait time is reasonable for having the food cooked in front of you.
Not what I was expecting, but I didn't leave unhappy.

Surprisingly good for brunch
Been here many times for dinner, was pleasantly surprised at brunch.
However, waitress with a bad attitude almost spoiled it!

Something for everyone
We find Fire and Ice the perfect location when we want to bring the family that is scattered around the state together. With various family members gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, meat eaters and on special diets, this is the perfect solution. Everyone gets what they want. No family member has to plan 5 different meals for 10 people. The food is good. The process is fun. And the staff is friendly and helpful.

When you don't want a crowd....
I brought about 8 of my buddies out for a birthday dinner. I originally thought it would be a great idea to go to the Fire and Ice near Copley (take in the sights, walk around, whatever) but we couldn't get a reservation at that location for a reasonable time (seriously, who eats dinner at 10 at night?).
So I booked a reservation for 8 on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend and when we arrived there were a few other parties there too, but we had a very small wait for our food to be cooked, not a ton of foot traffic gathering our ingredients, and our waiter was great on providing recommendations.
If you're bringing a crowd, but don't want a CROWD, try the Cambridge location.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff is so friendly and they make sure that you're soon perfectly fine, and, of course, the coolest part about Fire and Ice is the food and how it's made right in front of you so that you're less stressed out about what is in your food. Thank you for a terrific birthday dinner!

Not your grandfather's Mongolian BQ
Disappointed in food quality--used lower quality, bigger chunks of foode. Used to be shredded with better variety in all categories and sauces,

Arriving at Fire and Ice we found parking a bit expensive, $20 for 2 hours. Went in and reservation was on books. Seating for our party was not prepared and we were squeezed in between two other groups. Assisted the staff with putting tables together to accommodate our party. Requested to relocate due to difficulty getting into the seats. Request was granted. Room was noisy and made talking difficult. On plus side waitress, food and drinks were excellent.Should be a note on Fire and Ice website on parking situation so people can carpool when coming from a distance. It was $100 for our group of 10. Maybe try a different location other than Cambridge next time.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Got seated in a nice, quiet booth. Was great. You cook your own food.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food actually seemed to improve since last visit (and we were pleased last time). Variety seems to have increased as well. We introduced some friends to the restaurant and they loved it as well.

Excellent place for a large
Excellent place for a large group. We always bring out of town guests because Fire & Ice is such a unique experience for the out of towners.

We came for a bachelorette party and it was a blast! The service was excellent and on top of things, and the food was delicious!

Fire and Ice Cambridge -- GREAT!
Great experience, great food! Friendly atmosphere. Had reservations for 10 on a Saturday night. The restaurant called that day to confirm. Our table was ready and waiting. This was our first visit, so the friendly wait staff guided us to the food selection area and gave us all the details needed to get started choosing the foods we wanted grilled, and how to select sauces, salads, burgers...the works! Great place to go to try new foods and enjoy old favorites. If you don't like the result, start over and try something different! Fun to watch your food being cooked. :) Everyone in the group enjoyed their choices, and went back for seconds. The homemade chips served at the table were still warm from cooking...YUM! A great time was had by all!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated my son's 16th birthday recently. Our wait person knew it was a birthday celebration and worked to make it even more festive. She brought the kids a fun fruit drink in a large goblet with colorful straws. She had the customers around us join in singling happy birthday. She really made a special day even more special.

I won't go again on a Friday
I won't go again on a friday. Traffic and parking was terrible. We ended up being late, had to wait as if I didn't have a reservation.
server was slow and creepy we sat in dark booth with ripped seats. Noise was unbearable. Wanted a fun night out without the baby but just ended up stressed

Great for Lunch
My co-workers and I often frequent Fire & Ice for lunch. It's quite affordable during lunch. Dinner offers the same thing, but prices are higher. It's quite an experience selecting your own raw food to be cooked right before your eyes. I would highly recommend that you try it for lunch, the higher cost for dinner may still be worth it to you.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fire & Ice in Cambridge was a fun experience. It is great for anyone for dinner, because you choose your own food to have grilled in front of you. Everyone can find something they like!

Good to the last bite!
I went to Fire and Ice this past weekend. We went as a group of adults and teens - 8 in all, and arrived at 6pm. I recommend early dining with children here. The noise level was very low, and we enjoyed our company. The food was excellent. I got my favorite veggies, rice noodles, tuna, shrimp and a couple of pieces of tofu. Add the yakitori sauce and every bite was excellent!!!
My teens enjoyed the mesquite BBQ sauce, chicken and steak along with their favorite veggies.
Next time, I'll get the same thing!
Thanks, Fire and Ice!!

Good, but a tad underwhelmed
As the title suggests, I did enjoy myself (as did my fiancee and the couple we were with), however I was a bit underwhelmed considering he price.
If you like the concept of mix/matching your own food, then this place is for you. If you want the best bang for your buck or if you want to be wowed by taste, there are plenty of other places out there in Harvard Square that can do that at the same price.
Nonetheless, great spot for a date night in Harvard Square!

a fun place to celebrate
We had a great first time experience. Paulo our server was helpful showing us how it worked and was very attentive. We are looking forward to a return visit.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time, the meal is always excellent, but we were a bit surprised by the more limited vegetable option this time when we were there (when we had been there previously, the stir fry veggie options were more expansive). Other than that, the meal, drinks, and service were outstanding!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fire and Ice is a great place for personalize service and the staff is very very nice...I have been going there for years and and I would do it again...
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love this restuarant. The food is delicious, you get to select whatever you want and visually see it being prepared, there is a dessert option, and it's located in Harvard Square! It's perfect for a fun night out or special occassions!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a new experience for my husband and I. This restaurant was referred to me by our eldest son so I decided to take his father there for his birthday. It was nice, new different. I would definitely recommend this place to others
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique dining experience!
Different dining experience. Great for date night.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is absolutely the best place for a group or date night dinner!!

College Hot Spot
Went there with a group of students in Cambridge area - reunion type. Food was good and the quantity was great - it's a buffet place. I would def recommend it if you are looking for a place with an energetic crowd of people.
The only thing - F&I could introduce some new items to the menu...
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favorite!
I lived in the greater Boston area for several years, and always made a point to stop in for dinner at least once a year. I've been away from the area for almost a decade, and decided to return as part of a business trip. I have to say... NOTHING has changed, and that's a VERY good thing! The food is fresh and fantastic, the service is great, and the bar is both creative and extensive. It can be very loud at times, but that's to be expected when you have so many enthusiastic patrons enjoying themselves on a Saturday evening. Reservations are helpful! The line is a bit daunting when it's busy. But... funky decor, helpful flavor suggestions, and a meal that is *exactly* what you want (since you build it yourself!). Who could ask for more?

Had a great time with the family couldn't have asked for anything more

Our server was fantastic--always on top of things and very accommodating
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for visitors
When you're not sure what kind of food someone likes, it's great to come here because people pick out their own ingredients and portions; everyone gets just what they want .
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for groups
We always meet up w friends at F&I. We eat until we're stuffed, have a couple drinks and talk and laugh and have a good time. Our only complaint is that the booths are on the dark side of the moon.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed the experience,
I really enjoyed the experience, we were early on a Friday night so it was quiet which was fine for me. I think it would be fun to go with a group of friends. Seemed a little odd that we had to make reservations when only two tables eating in the restaurant. The only other people there were a handful of folks at the bar. I would definitely like to return.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
I really enjoy Fire N Ice every time I go. They have a wide variety of meats, sauces, and veggies to choose from!!! The cooks do a wonderful job keeping the many dishes separate. I always have a great time! I've been several times but this particular time (11/8), the waitress was terrible! We didn't have silverware, she rarely came over, and she seemed like she hated life! Also, our table was seated right next to the sauces. One of my friends who sat the closest to the sauces kept getting hit by people because the table was so close. That was kind of a turn off had it been our first time. Other than that, everything else was great! Fire N Ice's reward system is great too!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
A lot of fun!
I celebrated my birthday here with 14 friends. The staff was very flexible and the food was delicious! Thanks!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very well run
We have gone to F&I many times before while visiting my daughter at college. However, I notice there may have been a change in management, or at least on the Saturday night shift. The manager (or the gentleman who appeared to be in charge).kept everyone moving and was constantly helping in all areas of the restaurant. Because of his hands on approach, we were brought in earlier than our reservation (every time before if you had a reservation they still made you wait 10 to 15 minutes). Kudos to the person who was in charge on 11/16 when we arrived at 5:40 for a 6 reservation, we really noticed a difference!

Great for Birthday Dinner
Went with a friend to celebrate my birthday and use my free birthday meal which Fire and Ice most graciously provided. Had never been there before but my friend has been many times and showed me the ropes as well as our server explaining how it works. I was impressed with the selection of foods as well as presentation. Everything was so fresh and cooked to perfection. Have recommended to my friends, family and coworkers. Will be going there again.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and lots of fun. Only drawback was we went on a Tuesday and the selection of items wasn't as good as later in the week. Tried the grilled pizza and it was great
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always an adventure
I've been to Fire & Ice a few times, and each visit has been a very positive experience. The people are friendly, the food is always fresh, and the selection is almost overwhelming. There are so many options from which to choose, that every visit can be entirely different from the one before. Whether you're a meat-eater, a vegetarian, or a vegan, you'll find plenty of food choices to meet your needs - and the most important ones (the sauces) are all labeled, to make your selections easier. A fun place to visit, and always a tasty meal.

I took out of town friends to Fire and Ice to celebrate teen age holiday birthdays- perfect for the diversity of food likes and comfortable on the price.
