We had a delightful experience. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
It was our 3rd time coming to fire Lake, my husband and I. And once again we were overjoyed with our experience with that fire Lake. The service is attentive the food is of high quality and the over all atmosphere is very pleasant. We had ordered, during our last visit, the Tomahawk steak. We were the 1st to have ordered this entree since their new menu and the chef himself came out to greet us and chat. You could really tell that the chef was cashing it about his dishes and we felt cared for. The menu at fire lake is both diverse and well executed. We highly recommend this restaurant and it has become one of our favorites.
Out of a few key items from the menu which was disappointing, but the service was good and what we ultimately ordered ended up being good too.
Firelake is always a great place to dine before a sporting event or a show. Food is simply great and the service is super. Very handy parking and you are right in the middle of the Minneapolis loop. Great place for a date.
I ordered ‘Duck’, what I got was a mix of Duck & Chicken and a Chef who insisted it was all Duck. Awful food.
Service was terrible , one and done
Food overrated ,
We walked in and looked as if we were an inconvenience, and treated that way the whole time. Time for new staff and or possibly management. The only bright spot was the bartender helping us with parking.
Outstanding. Food was terrific and presented well upon serving. Staff was wonderful and very professional. Unique dishes with a variety of choices. Would highly recommend!
This was the worst Opentable reservation experience I have ever had. The manager had called the bartender in for the day to cover another employees bar shift. She was so rude and openly argued with him in front of guests. We visited 11/25 at 12:00pm. She openly stated she did not want to be at work and her service reflected it. Also, lots of handling of food/money without proper hand washing. The managers ability to make cocktails was dreadful and he was also very rude. 2 tables of six walked out after sitting for 10 minutes. The food was typical hotel lobby bar food. I would not recommend or visit this place again.
This was a great place to eat on Thanksgiving. I did my homework and read the previous year's reviews and the food was awesome! And plenty of it! I would certainly come back again next year should I decide to take the day off for cooking Thanksgiving. You got alot of food and it all tasted great.
We were heading to the Orpheum later that evening. Firelake's location was extremely convenient, our server was attentive and each course appeared in good time. And the food was very good. We'd go again!
Service was great, sandwich was bone dry.
Always enjoy it here. The server was so nice and friendly.
Pop Overs we’re cold and everything you get is an “extra” on your bill.
Our server was awesome. Just the right amount of checking in without being a bother. Pork chop and meatballs were extremely tasty. Perfect timing prior to our show.
One of my favorite restaurant in Minneapolis. Service & food is always impeccable. the restaurant and bar are beautiful.
excellent our hostess was great as well as the food and wine
The walleye was the best! Tender inside with slight crispness outside and a very generous portion. The prime rib was a hit with the others in my group. Service was awesome and the waiter was spot on directing us to to both wine and food choices given our questions.
We had a really great experience. Our server Carissa was wonderful! Food was beautiful and excellent. Thank you!
We enjoyed a lovely dinner before a concert. Food was great and our server Carissa was wonderful.
The food was great, but there was multiple times the waiter seemed to go missing for an extended period of time. When he would appear he jokingly shrugged off his absence, and wasn’t exactly the nicest about it.
The Restaurant Week special of rotisserie chicken was terrific, but the fish sandwich left something to be desired. Also, the wait staff was excellent - friendly and attentive.
Went for restaurant week during the work day. The service was fast and friendly and the food was good and a great value
Once again, Kevin gave us our best experience to date. I can not say enough about Firelake Grill.
Service and server were great and the food lovely. Really, a creative contemporary take on Minnesota meals. Delicious drinks and the noise level was truly fine - hard to find this component. We like this location on a snowy winter evening as you're at street level in downtown Mpls. Good , well-lit lighting in underground ramp, an important item for women arriving alone.
Had the brisket this time and was very happy with it! FireLake continues to be an expert place for a date night.
Enjoyed drinks and dinner here before the theater. Food was tasty, if you get the wings as an appetizer be prepared to get messy. Would visit again and try another item on the menu.
Went to dinner at FireLake before Hamilton. The food was good. Their signature old fashion was good. Our waitress was very attentive. Oh, and the cheese curds were tasty!
Ate here prior ro Sebastian Maniscalco at the State Theater. Kevin was a fantastic server. Food was delicious. Recommended the cherry wood pork chop.
I don’t know why this place isn’t more busy before shows and such, but it’s our bonus that it’s not! The food is great and reasonably priced, the decor is classy and calm, and it’s close to so many things. We had a 5:15 reservation (we could easily have walked in though) before a 7 o’clock Hamilton show, we got drinks and dinner and were paid and out in plenty of time to get to the Orpheum. Other places were booked or packed, but we were comfortable in our cozy place at the FireLake!
We went for Sunday breakfast before the Vikings game. Nice, quiet atmosphere and comfortable seating. The food was AMAZING! $3 Mimosas were also a sweet deal!!
Kevin made our night so great. I loved how easy he made our night and really gave us positive feedback on what we were looking for in our night.
Great waitress. Sublime dessert
Great before the Orpheum Theatre. Quiet enough to have a conversation. Appetizers, dinner and drinks were all wonderful. Restaurant has a small quaint feel to it yet there are options for large group seating. Our wait staff was top notch!
I can’t remember the waiters the night (9/22/18 7:30pm reservations) we we’re there, but he was EXCELLENT!! I wish I remembered his name.
It’s a decent restaurant inside the Radisson Blu. Central location that would be convenient for business meals. Food was average. Our server Carlos was fabulous.
Portion sizes small for the price. Wait staff was fine but not not overly warm. Good choice before going to an evening performance.
Pleasant servers who had tried most or all of the dishes and could make great recommendations. Quick seating and we were also grateful for a moderate to quiet noise level so we could enjoy a good after-theatre conversation. Food was just delicious, and very creative. They seemed genuinely happy to welcome us, and make sure our groups of four had a lovely experience. I will definitely go again!
Enjoyable dinner with family, including small children. Kids menu available, plus coloring activities helped occupy time while waiting for food. Wonderful drinks! We have eaten here many times and usually have experienced excellent food and service. This time it was slightly less than excellent, but still very good in food quality, price and service. Definitely will come here again.
Ate dinner prior to a show at the Orpheum. Our overall experience was mixed mostly due to the service. We arrived with reservations in-hand and they tried seating us at a table that was virtually in the entryway. We asked for another table and were brought to a better area that had plenty of seating. The service did not get better. Our waiter had limited knowledge about the menu, both food and drink. He visited the table to bring drinks and food. I did not get a refill on my water. The food quality was good. It is what you would expect for a mid $20 meal. The pork loin was nicely prepared and was adequately portioned. My wife’s salad with chicken was also nicely done. However, if you only get down town a few times a year and want that grand experience, this is not the place. You should expect engaged service and a wow feeling. We got convenience and a shrug of the shoulder from our waiter. As for the show, Hamilton lived up to the hype.
We had a very nice meal prior to attending a play downtown. The service was excellent. We had the salmon and the walleye. Both were excellent along with a nice Pinot Noir from Oregon. Would definitely return.
