chic midtown destination
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.

Amazing place for groups...
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!

Great spot in midtown to have
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!

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!

Service let me down this time!
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".

Ambience was great and food was very good, attentive service. Have had several client meetings here as well as social gatherings for breakfast and lunch.

Great setting, casual but elegant
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.

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.

Perfect setting for business lunch
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.

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.
