Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first time at Wok N' Fire, but there will certainly be many more! It was myself, wife and two kids (11 and 9). We all said it was one of the best overall meals we have ever had! The appetizers, sushi and entrees were outstanding! Service was fast, friendly and not pushy at all. Highly recommend the Pho, Kung pao chicken, St Charles roll and Teriyaki steak. Was far and away the best Asian food experience we have ever had!"

  • "I would consider myself a sushi junkie, and this place was the ultimate fix, but for a price. Our waiter, Gaston, was energetic, friendly and knowledgeable. My only let down was the environment. It was busy and noise was high. We were so close to other tables we could hear their conversations, which was rather distracting, but once our food arrived, it was bliss."

  • "We went to Wok & Fire with our friends before going to the symphony. The ambiance was very nice and it was not too loud, we were able to converse and enjoy our food. The appetizer, entrees and dessert were all excellent and we loved the ginger ale, it was delicious. The waitress was very helpful and explained everything well. She was attentive but not annoyingly so. The food presentation was great. The bar was hopping by the time we left, it is a fun place. Love all of the lit up lanterns hanging from the ceiling. We will definitely go back, the food was great."

  • "The ethnically diverse menu manages to stay true to a half dozen different Asian cuisines and offers excellent tastes of all of them. The staff is excellent, our wait staff has been friendly, attentive and knowledgeable each visit. The only small short coming is a limited sake selection and no corresponding variations from other Asian countries such as soju, however what they do have is quite good at reasonable prices."

  • "Erin, our Waitress and Heidi, the Asst. Manager were extremely helpful with their recommendations. Our group never really branched out more than the California/Philly rolls and we ended the night with a tempura eel!!! Will be going back with other friends soon to share what we've now learned. So much fun! Great value, too......"

  • "Nice decor. Good place to enjoy cocktails and unwind. The sushi and sashimi were fresh but nothing extraordinary. The asian food could be had elsewhere for bigger portions and better flavoring at significantly less price. Service was nothing extraordinary...kind of disappointing considering the hype and the very hip website. Online reservation ask what special occasion. It was my daughter's birthday but there was absolutely no acknowledgement from anybody in the staff!!! Little gesture for a 14 year old makes a whole world of difference and cost nothing...why bother asking if you are not going to do anything. They need lessons on better customer service. Should stick to being a bar and focus on sushi and sashimi only."

  • "Tried a couple of different dishes this time . The Hot and Sour soup was outstanding. All the noodle dishes are great, enough spice for me and easily made hotter for those who like it hotter. The service by Nicole was outstanding."

  • "Went there with a group of 12. They have a great drink selection, lots of fun martinis and cocktails. It was not too loud so we could all hear each other talk. The menu has something for everyone and the food was delicous! The service was a little slow, but could be due to group size."

  • "Wok n Fire is an absolutely amazing restaurant. I've been there for lunch and dinner and have left satisfied every time. The food is outstanding! Sushi is fresh and delicious. Wok dishes are unbelievable. Their ginger ale cocktails are out of this world. The servers are attentive, but laid back if you're looking to enjoy a slow paced night out. Recommendations from the staff were never a let down. Every detail of the decor adds to the fun vibe of this restaurant. My only criticism is that they have too many amazing appetizers, entrees, and desserts to choose from and I have a hard time choosing my meal! This is a restaurant I'd go back to time and time again."

  • "My husband and I went there for lunch on Valentine's Day. The food was amazing. Portions very generous and everything was cooked to perfection! We went with the intention of having sushi but after looking at the lunch menu. We each decided to have entrees. My tilapia was perfect and my husbands chicken was so tender. We can't wait to go back for the sushi!"

  • "My hubby and I went there for a post Valentine's Day dinner sans kids! We had a great time! We had a fabulous server who was charismatic and attentive, without being overbearing! The food was delicious (Kung pao noodles with veggies, Lettuce wraps, Mongolian Steak and St. Charles Rolls). The drinks were even better!"

  • "The night was Valentines day and our anniversary. We had great food but were sat near the door where employees smoke, it was cold, drafty and smelled bad of smoke. Our server was in a hurry to get us out of there and never asked if we would like dessert or another drink. (And we would have but had our check instead) There was a group that was sat right next to us. First, we had everyone swarming around us moving tables, bumping into us and talking about what's going on. Second, the group was so loud we had to yell at each other... After a bit we gave up and left. We have been to Wok n Fire 3 times previously and enjoyed it but after this last visit will be taking our business else where."

  • "This is a great neighbourhood gem nicely placed alongside the shops and entertainment. Do try the thai ice coffee to kickoff the meal. We had the special vegi sushi roll followed by kung pao entree."

  • "I went here with my fiance and mom to just give it a try and it is worth it! The drinks are amazing and the food is top notch. The only issue I found is that my food wasn't as spicy as I thought it was going to be. But other than that, I enjoyed it and even that nit pick isn't a major issue. The restaurant look in itself stands out and keeps you in awe. Definitely worth a shot."

  • "Simply put I had one of the most wonderful dining experiences due to our server Ben who: always approached our table in a upbeat, friendly manner; took the he time to explain to my friends the menu & answered their questions with ease; and taking my daughter's severe peanut allergy seriously. As well, while we looked over the menu a smiling chef approached our table with sushi rolls to try! What a nice surprise! :) Besides their awesome martinis the sushi is fabulous! I especially enjoy their unagi roll items; the presentation is simple yet delightful. :) And the carmalized bananas with ice cream is delicious! Thank you Ben for taking such great care of us by constantly checking on us with a smile and quickly responding to our requests! :)"

  • "This was our first visit to this casual Asian restaurant. The menu offers a wide variety of Asian and pan-Asian choices. We enjoyed the Governors Shrimp Stir-fry and the Spicy Hong Kong Scallops. One diner has a very sensitive mouth and the restaurant was very accommodating to their special needs. You will find the prices to be very reasonable. In addition, when we return, we will request seating in Ben's station. Even in Michelin-rated restaurants, we have not had a more attentive, knowledgeable server."
