Had breakfast there twice. Menu for food and beverages was good, but not very imaginative. Food was good, fresh and temperature appropriate. Service was extremely good - very attentive, but not intrusive. Our waiter was friendly and recognized us the second day, which is always a positive. Decor looks as though it could do with a fresh eye, both in general and in regard to upholstery. Tabletop accoutrements need attention! Salt, pepper, jams etc. were very sticky.

I had the surf tacos, which I think is an appetizer but I had them as my lunch entree and they were great.

As the Fireside was at the Omni hotel we were staying at for a week, we at there four times. The first time we arrived around 11pm after a long drive from Niagara and were tired and hungry. The waiter was exceptionally nice and attentive. We ordered a pizza and Caesar salad to share. They were both delicious. The next night we had dinner there and had wonderful service and delicious food. I had the filet and it was perfect. We also found out that the owner of the hotel was closing Fireside and opening a new restaurant he is part owner in. I hope it will be as good as Fireside. My sister and her husband also arrived at the hotel a few nights later and we decided to have a late night drink and dessert there after the show. The service was bad, took about 20 minutes to get served, and the desserts were not tasty at all. A waste of calories and time. I ordered a chocolate martini and it was just so so. My husband and I then had our last lunch before heading out to the airport. The service was mediocre and things like my steak knife could not be found but the food was very good. Anyway, hopefully things will get back on track when they reopen. In the meantime, I feel it is a hit and miss restaurant which is why I rated them only a good.

Dinner was excellent and service too!! I had dinner at the Fireside 2 nights in a row while away on business and enjoyed 2 wonderful dining experiences!! I would highly recommend a dinner at the Fireside. A bit pricey but well worth it!

The food was delicious. The service was not very good, we got left alone too long and never got refills on water.

The lamb chops and golden mashed potatoes where out of this world.

The shareable plates are the best. My favorites are the cheese-steak dumplings, fish tacos & lobster roll. The staff is always welcoming and warm. The food is always consistent.

I came here with a relative for her birthday and we were trying to find a place in the city that would accommodate us on short notice. Fireside was amazing. They quickly seated us and the decor was very festive for the holiday. Service was timely and the food was excellent. Small plates and main courses are very well priced for the ambiance. In addition, it was an excellent treat for the sous chef to come and check on the dining experience.

Been here two years in a row during our annual NYC visit. Every time I tell my husband the same thing - food is good, but the service is horrible. We waited 1 hour for dinner one night and another time it took 32 minutes to get a waiter to even take our order. On the plus side, they have a good kids menu.

Service and food were great. My son did not feel well and fell asleep on the super comfy bench and it was not an issue at all. They were very accommodating. We went there for breakfast the next day, too! The servers were quick to say that the buffet was the best value and also had the kitchen make eggs benedict for me to be part of the buffet. Not the best EB but the effort was there!

So first off this place is very pretty, rather small, but cute-its located inside our hotel had an amazing sounding menu since we were missing thanksgiving at home to visit new york with our 2 teenage daughters. The food was marginal at best and worlds slowest service considering there were not many people Dining here. We left with a $430 tab and unfortunately the food was a huge dissappointment.

Good for a business meeting. Service and food are nothing to write home about.

I have never had a bad meal at The Omni. The Maitre De is very accommodating, the service is prompt and friendly. I especially enjoy the salmon dish. The bartenders are also very friendly and pleasant.
