We had a good meal at Fire. The food was very good, the wine prices seemed reasonable so a good overall experience. The menu has a lot of small batch liquors and unique wines but the vodka we chose and the first wine selection was out of stock, but the next wine selection was quite good. It was a quiet night and not very crowded so hard to judge how the service and food will be in the busy summer but we'll be back to check it out. The quail appetizer was excellent and we also had two awesome salads before our red snapper and crawfish, crab and artichoke pasta dishes. We enjoyed it!!

My wife and I eat healthy
My wife and I eat healthy on a regular basis...sometimes that's not easy when substitutions are not allowed.....however we were allowed to do so here! That always stands out to me! We've been here many times before but this was one of our more enjoyable experiences. Great server too!
Would recommend to anyone!!!

DELICIOUS food !
We sat at a table in the bar area - big screen tv's - not too loud with bar - the food was DELICIOUS - service was a little slow and a mistaken which was quickly corrected - however we learned a server was a no show and our guy was called in with about 20 minutes notice so he did the best he could - did not disrupt our evening - I recommended to friends - they liked it too!

The fresh seasonal menu is
The fresh seasonal menu is fantastic and the entire dinner was amazing. If you want fresh, never frozen and gourmet food with excellent service, fire is definately worth a try. We waited a bit for the main course but we didn't mind and it was well worth the wait. We will be going back.

This was our second visit,
This was our second visit, and the restaurant lived up to the high bar set the first time. 30A restaurants can be really hit or miss, and during Spring Break we had a LOT of misses. Fire was solid. I recommend starting with the dip trio for the table, which is good with wine. The sunflower-encrusted snapper is unique. We've never had a bad experience with the menu, though. If it sounds good to you, it probably will be.

Fire was very good! We returned
Fire was very good! We returned after two years and the food is still quite good. We always like the dip trio and enjoyed it this time as well. Both fish dishes were very good. Our son enjoyed the burger but it was priced a little higher than warranted. Overall, Fire is a bit on the pricy side, but not much more than many of the best 30A spots. Our waiter was efficient and we had a nice dining experience. We will be back!

Terrific 30A Restaurant
With so many mediocre restaurants on 30A, it was refreshing to find Fire. Great and original recipes with very fresh and local ingredients. Outstanding service -- our waiter was friendly and attentive, but not obtrusive. The snapper was great -- really fresh and served with a light but delicious relish. Everything was delicious. Excellent wine list for the Panhandle and an especially good selection of wines by the glass. Good location with plenty of parking -- surprised it was not busier on a Saturday night.

I took my mom to FIRE for Mother's Day brunch the last two years and we have had a wonderful experience both times. The food is delicious, the ambiance is great, and the champagne flows wonderfully. This will be a Mother's Day tradition without a doubt.

The food and service were impeccable. My husband and I ordered the grilled black grouper which was excellent. Can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu. We were told that we must try the champagne brunch on Sunday's. looking forward to that also.

A Good Find
This was our first time at Fire at Gulf Place. I had read some reviews and decided to give it a shot and we were happy we did. The restaurant is contemporary with great art on the walls. The menu is a little more limited than some other Destin restaurants but that just means they execute what they offer better. We shared the tomatoes 3 ways and the beet salad. Both were beautifully presented and tasted great. The beet salad was huge, with 3 of each of 3 different types of beets. Three of us had the red snapper for dinner. Interesting preparation with the sunflower seed crust, and it works! The fourth person ordered a sea bass special and loved it. Nice wine list at reasonable prices. We'll definitely go back next year when we are in Destin!

Brunch was amazing.
A friend recommended that we try brunch at Fire while we were on vacation. We had the grits & grillades which were phenomenal and also the strawberry, banana and white chocolate pancakes which were also delicious. Champagne was complimentary so I enjoyed a couple of mimosas. The only thing we were not happy with was the bloody mary that my husband ordered. It tasted like cocktail sauce so I think it may have had horseradish in it. Some people may like that but it wasn't for us. We will definitely go back next time we visit the 30a area.

So, this was our 1st visit to the Santa Rosa Beach area, and I booked Sunday Brunch at Fire @ Gulf Place. We had very far to travel (just across the parking lot).
We had the pancake special "peaches/blueberries" as suggested by the waiter as the "appetizer", which was an excellent suggestion.
I had the salmon frittata, and he had the chorizo omelet. I love any restaurant that offers "FREE" flowing champagne as part of their brunch.
All-in-all we enjoyed our meal.

Always a treat.
When we visit from TN brunch is the first reservation made. Food is very well done and the champagne flows. Well worth it!

Party of 8 on vacation from N.O. with chance to relax and enjoy a good meal. Turns out not up to N.O. standards! Good wine selection! Good specials! Some dishes not prepared as well as expected!

Really enjoyed dining at Fire
We had a great meal at Fire. While we dined there on a "off night" (Tuesday) the food and service were great. I particularly enjoyed my fish entree (amberjack), the special for the day. The salads are fresh and inventive, too. I hope we can dine there again the next time we are in the 30A area.
