Loud and bustling. This is a fun bar scene, but probably not my favorite place to sit down to a meal. Food is pretty good, but you can do better in Bergen County -- menu a bit limited. Servers were pleasant and did their best on a busy night.

The food was fantastic and our server very friendly. I had a terrific espresso martini. The room was very noisy though so not a place for a quiet romantic dinner

I really love this restaurant but was so disappointed last night. Chose to go for our anniversary dinner and was looking forward to some delicious filet mignon. But the menu is somehow slimmed down to just a few entrees and it said something on the bottom that more items will be added when the prices aren’t so high!!! Why not give us the choice if we want to pay more for the meal we enjoy? Anyway, I did order the baby back ribs and they were delicious but just not the filet I was thinking I was going to get. They did give us champagne for our anniversary though and our waitress was great!

We've never been to any of their locations, and found the mix of new American options a bit disjointed ... like they threw together a bunch of different menus to see what sticks. That said, our meals were all tasty.

What didn't work was the service. We arrived at 6:30pm and didn't get our check until a little after 9:30pm. While I would normally give the servers a break recognizing everyone is having trouble with staffing these days, in this case, I don't believe that was the issue. We had a corner table and I could see the frequency with which our server entered the main dining room. My sense is that she was just unattentive. She didn't appear to be rushing around to service other tables, but rather just never in sight. Waters went unfilled, our drinks took 30 mins to arrive. Meals came out 30 or 40 mins later, and we sat and talked for a good 45 mins after finishing our mains before the server found us with empty plates.

Fire & Oak was fine. There are hundreds of new American places in the suburbs these days. This one didn't stand out.

The waiter staff was terrible. We were there to celebrate a birthday and we’re so excited to have the family together.
First we notified them of the birthday- great! They did nothing to make it special. No dessert, no candle nothing. Strange because we are regulars here and the last birthday we celebrated there they did!
No bread service. Rushed our dinner. Bill was wrong with items in there we never ordered! Then the waiter came to justify why he added a beer and string beans to our bill that we never ordered. Seriously?

We will not be coming back.

Fire and Oak is a very nice looking space. The service was great food and drinks came out quick and our server I believe his name is kade was great. Unfortunately the food was sub par. We ordered the coconut shrimp app and it was the worst I’ve ever had. It was even coconut crumbs it was the bread crumbs you get at a little league game when you order chicken fingers. Then I got the filet steak quesadilla and luckily I had water because that was the driest quesadilla I’ve ever had. Literally I asked for BBQ sauce just to give it some flavor as well as helping it get down my throat. My gf got the short rib and apparently it was good. my brother got the salmon (I brought it home for him) and he said it was nothing special. Overall for the quality of the food for the price was not worth it. Service was great. Place was somewhat loud it’s definitely not a place that you want to sit down and have a “nice romantic evening” but if you wanna maybe get some drinks and order some apps could be a place to go.

I took my man there for his birthday for the 1st time and overall we had a good experience. Waitress was amazing. Just disappointed with my braised short rib meal, but his Hawaiian steak was fabulous! Great thing they took off the bill. We wanted to order the Detroit pizza but they were out of dough, which was strange on a Tuesday evening.

Has been one of our favorites for several years but has changed. We don’t believe any changes are due to management or servers. They are doing their best. I usually get the Volcano Roll and my spouse always got the Prime Rib special on Sunday. They no longer serve the Prime Rib due to meat prices, shortages, etc. and they have a new person doing the sushi and it wasn’t bad but not like it use to be. Hopefully things will get better with time. We won’t give up on them.

None of the staff wore masks. We were so surprised. And we were also told that the staff were not required to be vaccinated. How is that safe??? Can you imagine?

This is a really nice place to gather with friends where the ambiance, service and food are all good. However, and it’s a huge however, you literally cannot carry on a conversation as the noise level is off the chart. I left the restaurant last night with my ears ringing and today they still are. I really like this place…I just wish they’d work on the acoustics.

Great service and very accommodating. Excellent atmosphere. Great food. A bit limited menu and the entrees were more medium wellish to medium rare but still very tasty. The staff were excellent and provided extra treatment for an anniversary dinner.

The food was good. My husband had the surf and turf and he enjoyed it. I had the ribs which was good. I didn’t enjoy the coleslaw. It was very loud and we couldn’t hold a conversation so we decided to have dessert at another place.

I have been to F&O a bunch of times the food is decent service is good but they are over priced…. $22.00 for a burger or $19.00 for an appetizer steak quesadilla is just nuts…. I do not think I will be returning and I am definitely not cheap…..
