Food was good but was not handled with care. Drinks were ok. Service is pretty bad. Not worth $250 for a dinner of two

Valentine Day Dinner - Set menu for the night $65 a person + $35 wine pairing
Well, as we were leaving Fire - The Art Hotel of Denver the valet asked "how was it". My wife and I answered honestly. "Average - Nothing to write home about". For those who follow Big D ratings you know that I praise the great but this was not a great experience and could tell that it wasn't just because it was Valentine Dinner night.

Here are my notes:
1. Valet parking and leaving - good speed
2. Hotel first floor lobby nothing to talk about.
3. Hotel forth floor main lobby and Fire location - no real art to talk about.
4. Seated quickly with a number of empty tables at 8:15 pm (Open Table reservation) which should mean the wait staff and kitchen will be organized.
5. Wait staff explained the fixed menu. We decided to go with a bottle of La Rejardiere Cotes du Rhone.
Nice blended table wine a GSMC blend. Retail price $10 / Fire price $50 (5 times mark - little high / typical is 4 to 4.5 times) still a reasonable price. Nice wine selection to pick from.
6. With a fixed menu and according to the times to pick from the seats were sold out for the night.
Wine and food came very slow but we weren't in a rush. Wait staff was busy busing their tables.
7. Food was average. As I told the valet - "Nothing to write home about". Good and warm when it came to the table but, for downtown Denver the average meal for two with a bottle is around $100 not
the $200 that was on our check. Less the wine $150. For "average" I would not suggest Fire to a friend.

We were so excited for our Valentine's date but were very disappointed with the service and quality of food at Fire. Would not recommend to anyone. Very disappointed in the entire experience.

Always warmly welcomed at this Denver gorgeous restaurant! It's so convenient to the Denver Art Musum, each time we visit the museum we have lunch here! Ask for the round table in the corner - it's got the best view of Denver! Staff is helpful and professional. Food is spot on. Such a pleasant experience!

I have eaten here twice. First time food was very good but second time food was barely good to good. Food was either under or over-cooked. In my mind food is what matters when spending good money. I would hesitate to go back.

I had a great experience the first visit, over a year ago, but just a fair experience this time. First visit was lunch, this one breakfast. The floor was covered in crumbs and near our table, my menu splattered with food, it just felt dirty.
It was supposed to be a super special birthday brunch but we were greeted and seated and served as if we were just a blah part of someone’s work day. Our server even muttered “of course,” under her breath sarcastically at another co worker. My friend’ was brought a luke warm cup of coffee. When she asked for a fresh one the server brought her a new cup of coffee (which was warmer) but left the full cold cup still in front of her on our tiny table for two. What was she supposed to do with a cold cup of coffee??? Our check came promptly when we asked for it, but then it took quite a long time for our card to be picked up, even though the restaurant did not look half full. We were there from 10:45 until noon for a single course meal. The view and location wonderful, the avocado toast really good. Quinoa bowl pretty good! Not stunning. I was hoping for the whole birthday gift experience to have the same very special feel as the first visit.

We had the corner table with full window view over Broadway and 12th Avenue. It felt so cosmopolitan! The food was outstanding, although my son's pork chop was raw when first sent out. The salmon with beurre blanc and farrow risotto was excellent, as was the chicken roulade. The sides (risotto, parsnip puree, charred brussel sprouts) were all to die for! Scrumptious wedge salad too. My husband's burger and the crab and avocado taco appetizer were the only dishes that weren't oversized, like big enough for 2 to share. Service was very, very slow. Good thing we had plenty of time.

The food here is always good, but the service last night was beyond poor. Tried to treat my out of town mother and sister to something different before going to the museum. Had a reservation and were not sat until almost 30 minutes after the reservation time, which was nerve wrecking because we had specific museum entry timed tickets. Ordered appetizers that never came. Tried to see a wine list which never came so tried to order wine and were met with hostility because we didn’t know what they did and didn’t carry. Ordered coffee at the end of dinner- it also never arrived. Came back after going to the museum to try for coffee again and it showed up cold.

We were seated in a side room (the one with the plaid bears) and the noise from the main dining area was overwhelming. Until it quieted down some we could barely hear each other. The food was outstanding. Overall a most pleasant experience, aside from the noise.

I enjoy Fire for the ambiance, the great selection of drinks, and the ease of parking. I have been pleased with the service on previous occasions, but level of service slipped this past visit. I assume is was on off night. Still a great place for the evening.

Great menu with a lot of options! Yummy wine and cocktail list. Service could use a kick in the pants as she was super inattentive, slow and not very friendly. She was expecting us to be rushed for a Monet exhibit but alas I was at a client dinner. She didn’t seem impressed when we wanted dessert and we contemplated not ordering any so we could just leave. They’re we’re also out of a few menu items that seemed weird such as butter and an after dinner wine!

The bae staff was super friendly and very attentive when we went there after dinner for a night cap beverage.

The blue crab tacos should be removed from menu - gooey, might as well have been ordinary tuna salad, little crab, little avocado. The ceasar salad was excellend.

The decor is sleek and modern. I love the light from all the windows and enjoyed my view. The wait staff were friendly though on this particular day I thought the service was a bit slow. However we had plenty of time so ultimately it didn't matter. My salad was quite good. It had blackened chicken that was spicy but not overly so. I thought it was great. My companions enjoyed their meals as well. I will look forward to my next meal there.

We spent night in hotel in conjunction with seeing Monet exhibit at Art Museum. Elected to eat in rather than going out. Had very good meal at Fire. Snapper and short ribs were excellent. Finished with chocolate mousse and bread pudding for dessert. Highly recommend if in area,

I had told the waitperson I had a few allergies - garlic and onions - when I ordered a burger and was assure it did not have - or would not have either. It was not served with the sauce. However, I got really sick for two days. I am just coming out of it. It started about an hour after I ate the burger. This happens with cross contamination by onions. If it was grilled or touched by something that had onions or garlic on it, I get sick. I did not finish it by the way because it was not very good. The bun was very hard.

I wish restaurants would take food allergies seriously - please educate your staff.

We had a family meal after going to the Denver art museum. It was six adults and one eight-year-old. The food was great expensive. Service was good but tapered off towards the end of the meal. Table was great with an awesome view of the city and mountains.

We went for Sunday brunch. There was no cocktail list and we knew they had mimosas, they were not listed on the menu. We had to ask about them. I had no idea they would be so expensive! It is $20 for bottomless or $12/each. We had two each so it cost more to have two than to do the bottomless for $20. The server did not tell us how much they were individually. You need to update this on your menu and train the servers to be upfront and honest about pirces for items NOT listed on the menu! The menu descriptions are not very accurate either. We had the traditional benedict and chorizo benedict and they were good. We had several servers waiting on our table but couldn't get water glasses filled without asking. Check was dropped off and after 10 minutes of no one coming back, I had to hunt down a server to run my credit card. The server who brought it back to me was VERY rude. They left two pens, neither of them worked.

This is a really wonderful restaurant! The brunch was just superb - best I have ever had. Service is quick and attentive, but not at all intrusive and no feeling of being rushed. We loved sitting in the bright, airy dining room, looking out floor-to-ceiling windows. Decor is spare and lovely, very pleasing. Everything about our experience was positive. I will definitely go back.

The food was mediocre at best. The French fries were cold and mushy and the service was rather slow. My husband really didn’t like the green chili and didn’t eat it. It’s really just a bunch of hype. So many other better options in Denver I’d you want to be wowed.

Service slow but ok with us. It was the simple things that we had to wait for: pepper for salad? Wine with dinner? But we were in no hurry, so waited.
Food was very good as were pre dinner cocktails.

Table was not clean. Utensils missing, glasses dirty. Waitress brought water then was gone. Took drink orders then we waited another 15 min. Rec'd. hot water but no tea bag. Food was finally ordered did not take too long. It was acceptable. We had ordered churolls as starters but never received them. Told her to forget them. We got ticket and I left my card and went to restroom. I just signed card and we left. Their were six of us and that is the only reason they got a 20% tip. We were also charged for the churolls but no one wanted to go back to fix the error.

They were busy, but we had a reservation and still waited for 20 minutes before we could even talk to someone. Wait staff was pleasant enough but every step in the process took forever. We arrived at 6:00 and didn’t end and pay check until almost 9:00. Loud crowd there so the two of us could hardly hear each other across the table. And we had to return the bill before paying because they incorrectly charged us for two extra glasses of wine. Very disappointed.
