Everyone gets to choose what they want as many times as they want for one set price. Around the grill is loud and vibrant. If you want a quieter experience, ask to be seated in the back room. The wait staff is attentive and upbeat and the food fresh. Easy parking across the street, but a bit expensive. This restaurant is in Harvard Square within short walking distance to the Red Line MBTA stop,take the escalator from the platforms to the Church Street exit. After dinner stroll through Harvard Yard.

We were at Fire & Ice for the first time to celebrate my birthday. The atmosphere was great, our waitress was on point and the food was AMAZING!!! I have already told so many people about our experience and highly recommend this place to everyone. We will definitely go back!

I understand it was a late lunch time reservation but the staff seemed like it was bothered I was there. The server had to be fetched for drinks and the check. The cook was more interested in watching tv than cooking.

The food was good which is to be expected seeing as it is made to order right in front of your face. My children really enjoyed being able to pick out exactly what they wanted and telling the cook exactly how they wanted it made. Very kid friendly I think it would be good for a group of friend trying to go out to a nice brunch. Service was good

The food was pretty good, but the atmosphere is tired. I was in town for my 10th college reunion and asked friends to meet there. I'm not sure anything has been updated in the last 10 years. Not even a fresh coat of paint. Also the letters on the sign outside were falling off or missing. Just felt a little sad. They could be hauling in a lot more crowd with a little updating and better service.

I enjoyed my salad--with all the various herbs and veggies, despite the mayo-based dressings, my salad was delicious. Come here for quantity and flavor not quality: meat grisly and tough; garlic from a jar. Cocktail--espresso martini--was also a disappointment. Stick with beer.

As always our trip to Fire N Ice was fabulous for the entire family! Although we usually head to the Back Bay or Providence locations, we switched it up tonight and went to Harvard Sq with the kids for dinner after a show (yes, kids really do eat for free on vacation wee)!! If you dine at Fire N Ice and ever leave hungry or unhappy with the selections for choices, then you are probably the type of person who is unhappy no matter where you go. Tonight's visit was especially pleasant due to our server Mark. I feel as though the guy was waiting on the entire restaurant, yet took the extra time to continually make sure we had everything we need. Will make the trip to Harvard more often!

Fire + Ice is a unique experience - you create your own meal and they cook it for you.

You fill a bowl with raw meats, some plain and others seasoned, vegetables, pasta, etc. from the very large and well-stocked buffet Then you pick from among 14 sauces, this by itself is great fun, tasting cups are provided and used heavily.

You take your chosen sauce, or personal hand-crafted blend, to the huge cooking station where amazingly energetic cooks spread the ingredients of each person's bowl out on an 8' diameter circular grille, cook perfectly, then add your sauce, cook a bit more, and hand you an extraordinary and thoroughly personalized feast.

This is an all-you-can-eat restaurant so you can make a second and third trip and create an entirely different course each time.

The only sour spot was when they told us the make-your-own-sundae ice cream bar was $5.99 extra, offensively pricey and you only get to go there once. But, I'd already committed that everyone could have ice cream so that took the bill up by $36 unexpected dollars.

Monday night is college night, I took five college kids, at $11.99 each - a great bargain. One guest seemed about to transcend human existence when he was told it was all-you-can-eat. Everyone loved the food, our waitress was properly attentive.

This is a somewhat rowdy place, not an ideal romantic dinner spot. And not for the stuffy at heart.

Very highly recommended, great fun, fantastic food, a unique event.

Seafood was good, chicken and pork too. But to give taste to food, you need more than scallions, garlic or BBQ sauce. Restaurant is more for college groups. No ambiance around the cooking pit. Cook gave one of our plates away to somebody else.

A member of our party could only eat gluten-free. The restaurant cooked her food in the back so it wouldn't touch the other foods. She was very thankful.

The ambiance is playful and fun. I come here with my friends for every birthday or special occasion. The vegetables and meat are always perfect. The only disappointment was that the fish was over cooked.

Food was ok. Very busy so never got to eat with my family. Our meals were ready at different times so we didn't connect over our dinner. Not family oriented. The table and overall eating area was dark and grungy. A family member who recently experienced the Boston location much preferred Boston. Cleaner, Brighter, Faster.
If we want to have family time over dinner, we will go to a different style place to eat.

Last time I was there there was lots of food choices and they cooked my food perfectly! This time I went they had taken away a few desserts, seafood options and they burnt my food a bit. Don't worry... I would still love to go back!

We were seated at a booth with very poor lighting -- couldn't see the food. The cooks kept on messing up what sauce went with what order and ruining people's food. The waitress never brought bread but when we were leaving other people had it on their tables. The assortment of vegetables was minimal.

Went to Fire and Ice because several friends recommended it to us. We were not disappointed. So much fun. Quite a variety of ingredients to choose from. We had a somewhat quiet table and we were able yo have a conversation. The waitress went out of her way to explain the procedure for picking your ingredients and sauces. Great to watch the chefs grill it for you. Perfect spot on a Church St. especially if you are going to a concert at a Sanders Theatre.
