The restaurant closed between the time I made the reservation and the date I set for the event. I'm actually okay with that, since these things happen, and the business had a more difficult time that I did. However, I find it abhorrent that OpenTable has asked me to review my cancelled event at a place that no longer exists. I'll still go to the other Fire+Ice locations, but I doubt that I'll ever use OpenTable again to book it.

The Cambridge Fire and Ice closed this past weekend. Because they were closing many menu items were not available. Can't recommend it because they are no longer in business.

I love fire and ice Boston, and was eager to give the Cambridge location a try! It was smaller, and cozy. But our server barely paid us any attention. I had to get up and ask the bartender for cutlery as she was gone 20 minutes. She was nice, but wasn't attentive to our party of 10. She wouldn't split our checks either- she said she could only do up to four, which I know isn't true as Boston uses the same system and they certainly could. I was underwhelmed but I think it mostly had to do with our service than the location.

This place was so busy when I used to live here a while back. Now, we went on a Friday night and it was completely dead. I'm not sure what happened. Years ago I remember waiting for a table for 2 1/2 hours on a Friday night..and now the restaurant was near empty. I don't get it. The food is still good..and the service was really good.

Went for my daughter's 14th birthday- her pick. Our first time as well. Loved the concept of pick your own food and sauce for grilling, plus the all you can eat lets you try more than one combination. Food was delicious. Atmosphere- nothing fancy. The booth we sat in had a ripped cushion, which wasn't repaired- taking away from the ambiance. I asked for the staff to sing to my daughter in advance- didn't happen.

Even in Cambridge you can get a good deal at Fire and Ice. For about $18 per person, the unlimited buffet has a dizzying array of options. They were even great about my gluten free wife.

It has been many years since the last time I was at Fire & Ice Cambridge, and the parts I remember fondly are still there, and the new additions (kid friendly options) are blended in seamlessly. We had a great time, and really enjoyed the food, as well as the whole food preparation process!
Thanks,

The service was great and the food was as expected though some of the vegetables could be higher quality. Overall dining concept is fun and entertaining though somewhat difficult for family dining with kids. Hasn't changed in a decade. Could use a little TLC if not a complete remodel. At a minimum it needs a good cleaning, some repairs, new carpet, and a paint job. Bathroom was not terribly clean, even the door was sticky.

I've been eating at Fire + Ice for almost 20 years now and it's always a good dining option if you are looking for variety. They also have the best burgers in Boston in my opinion. However, the food wasn't as good as usual this time and there were fewer sauce options than they usually have. That said, the service was significantly better than usual - normally I find the food is better at the Cambridge location and the service better in Boston, but this time that wasn't the case and I wound up only having two plates of food (I normally have at least three). The ratings provided were specific to this visit.

This place is for teenagers. The sticky floors are gross, the food is average (at best) quality.

Food had been out for a while, didn't look quite fresh. Our best experience was that the waiter was helpful and gave us great service. The food didn't sit too well in our stomach.

We enjoyed the dining experience. Our only negative was the $24 we had to pay for parking. Restaurant should validate parking!
