Great spot to eat!
Nice atmosphere, food was great, service was exceptional. We have two small kids and they opened a closed section just for us. Staff was very nice and couldn't have been any more pleasing to the kids and us. Totally would recommend it.

Took a very long time to get check
Went here for a small business lunch (4 of us). The food was fantastic and we were all able to hear each other well, as there was little background noise. The only downside was that it took a very long time for us to get our bill. As we are in DC, I like to assume that restaurants would be quick with these steps, as they should know that folks need to get back to their offices. Aside from the slow service toward the end and the fact that I never actually got the iced tea I ordered (we were not charged for it), this was a great spot.

Had small office group, and really enjoyed it. Food is always good-great here...service was very, very good. Overall, everyone in our party enjoyed the dining experience. I have been there several times, but it was new for most of the group.

A reliable neighborhood gem
Always enjoy the food and the ambiance at Fire & Sage - the menu's savory and has enough variety to satisfy my various cravings and the food is always tasty. The service is wonderful warm and the food comes out of the kitchen with amazing rapidity.

Nice Mother's Day brunch
I took my wife and family here for Mother's Day brunch - the food was good and I thought $20 per adult was a fair price. It was an enjoyable meal.

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.

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.

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!

This is the first time I've
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.

Excellent Food and Service
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!

Great food, great service.
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!

Easy and comfortable
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.

perfect for downtown lunch
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!

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.

We didn't want to walk too
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!

A Pleasant Experience
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.

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!

Warm, comfy locale, savory fare
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.

Good business lunch
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 :-)
