Initially dismayed when I realized this was a "hotel restaurant". Was prepared to be disappointed. Boy was I happy to be wrong. Everything about our visit was fabulous. Service, food, ambiance and price. I will be back.

I had the prime rib and it was delicious. The most tender prime ribs. Mashed potatoes were to die for. I also ordered the Sidecar drink and it was a bit strong.

We were visiting from out of town and found the restaurant on a website highlighting some of the better eating establishments in Minneapolis. The on-line menu included a walleye main course, which is something we wanted to try. In addition to walleye, we had the trout and an appetizer of venison tips. Everything was excellent. The on-tap beer selection also included a number of local brews, of which we tried two - a stout and a Weiss beer. Both very good. All around, a great meal and an excellent waiter - Kevin.

Large portions. Prime rib was very tough -- in fact, had to have dinner companions hold plate to cut the prime rib as the table surface was slick and plate scooted as I was cutting. While the waitress was friendly, she NEVER asked if we were enjoying the food and if it was satisfactory.

The food is always good here, they put their own twist on many of the dishes. Service is erratic though. Today it was extra slow. And inattentive. Never did get the coffee refill I asked for (twice).

Visited for a family Easter brunch. FireLake had an amazing menu and the ambiance was perfect for a relaxing setting. No waiting for the reservation, no crowds and fantastic service.

Would visit for a happy hour when in the area!

We have been to FireLake Grill several times previously, and we have not been disappointed. They generally have at least one good vegetarian option as an appetizer, and there are plenty of side dishes to bolster the meal. Always a fan of the popovers, and their drinks are fancy and delicious. We will be back.

Our server had great suggestions and was attentive to our drinks and the flow of our meal. The rotisserie chicken and the short ribs were perfect; very tender and great flavor. Our drinks were very good also. The place is very clean and appealing and I like how the tables are not too close together so we didn't feel crammed in.

I often try to get something I've never had before when I come here. This time around was the Angry Bison Burger. Excellent meat, great flavor, and not as spicy as you might think (it has ghost pepper in the cheese). For an evening out on St. Patrick's Day, the restaurant was reasonably calm.

I'm usually not a fan of hotel restaurants, but this was close to a concert and we could get reservations. The food was fantastic! And the service was super kind.

Very disappointing breakfast all around. The server brought coffee and took our order otherwise never saw him or any other. They changed the set up of the room so it’s not inviting at all. Food, egg and pancake was fine but the whole experience was so not worth it. It was just a bland breakfast and on top we paid $10 for parking which I wouldn’t have minded if breakfast was good. It seemed like corporate ran through, changed the concept and left. No one was in charge, no manager...no one.

The restaurant was very nice- our waitress was very nice and helpful- the rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes were very good - however, I wish they offered a pre-dinner salad and some bread. The "meal" was good, but a little sparse with no bread/salad option to go with it.

Very slow an unattentive staff. We waited a good 20 minutes without being approached for an order. It was only after approaching the hostess that service began. We were local- but, if service like this occurs during the very busy upcoming Super Bowl festivities- this will not bode well for our city or the restaurant that is associated with a highly regarded hotel brand.

First time here. Had a group of five. Kevin our server was top notch. He was very upbeat and attentive. The food was average and a bit overpriced. Walleye was covered in Panko. For me that’s just a waste of fish. The continued theme of too much sugar on every
Meal is offensive. Cornbread and popovers good. Lamb ribs very good. $14.00 drink is just a bit too much. Nothing was memorable and for us left us all not disappointed but gave us no reason to want to go back. Called prior to arrival and told valet parking is $10.00. Valet parking was $17.00. I think you have other options and would probably skip this place.
