We went here for a date night. It was lovely. The noise wasn't too much, the food was excellent, and the server let me try my wine before deciding which to order. I would highly recommend coming here.

We went for our 30th anniversary; it was our first time. I was pleased with the social distancing and masking requirements. The Waygu sirloin was amazing, as was the goat cheese ravioli and mussels. My only problem was the noise level, which is always an issue for me in most places it down town Fredrick. But other than that, great food, great service, and very reasonable pricing. We roll go again.

We had a wonderful evening, seated at an upstairs window table. (It’s our favorite place to sit.... great street view! Note that there’s no restroom up there though, in case that would be an issue).

Excellent food...foie Gras, spring salad, scallops and veal tenderloin.
Alice our server was excellent.
We had a window seat upstairs but the noise was too loud for a fine dining restaurant.

I had made reservations for a sister birthday celebration, just two people. They accommodated us as we requested a window seat upstairs. It was a perfect Sunday to sit and have brunch and watch Frederick look normal again, sunny day, everyone out with their dogs, shopping, eating... The food and service was excellent! Must go back with husband!

I love brunch at Firestones. It’s relaxing and the food is always good. I would like to see a bit more menu options or specials at brunch. We go fairly regularly and some variety would be great.

As always, it was excellent. There was a very loud couple next to us who had no understanding of how obnoxious they were being, but this is not your fault. We love Firestone and will be back for sure (hopefully, the loud couple will not).

I made a reservation for noon on a Tuesday and we were seated at a very nice window table upstairs. The service was on time and friendly and both meals (and beers) were delicious. We had the cheese steak with arugula salad and a BLTA with fries. We were able to eat and visit without feeling rushed.

We booked over 3 weeks in advance for my sister’s 30th birthday. The three of us were sat in the corner upstairs by the window which was fantastic. We ordered a few cocktails and wine, the riced calamari risotto, and three entrees. These included the Duo of Duck, Glazed Short Ribs, and the Butter Poached Lobster and Shrimp. Then we ended with pineapple bread pudding. I have NEVER had a better meal both in taste and experience. The server was so nice and helpful, especially when we needed advice choosing a meal. They comped my sister’s dessert which was very thoughtful. If you’re looking for a great spot for a special occasion, this is the place.

We always love our trips to Firestone's. Today we opted to bring our entire
(large) nuclear family to one of our favorite date night spots and everyone was so friendly and cordial to our kids. The food as always was amazing, service was top notch and even though we spent much more than we usually do for family dinner, the kids can't stop raving about it.
We found Firestone's on a trip to explore our new home 2 years ago and it has become one of our favorite places to visit. Everytime is amazing.

We went for the first time during restaurant week and it was incredible. My wife and I both got something different so we could try one another's and everything was stunning. I'd highly recommend it and we will be returning.

Even though we had just brought take out home the previous night from Firestone's, we decided our night out would be there as well. The menu is extensive enough that our meals both nights were completely different and just as good each time. I had Mahi Mahi the first night- perfectly cooked to melt in your mouth, and the pasta with mushrooms the second night- full of flavor! Service was a touch slow, but we think just because of the awkwardness of COVID restrictions. The whole restaurant was set up properly and all staff were adhering to COVID protocols to keep all there as safe as possible. Great service and food.

Loved the restaurant. The food was so good and the service was friendly and prompt. My husband and I will definitely be coming back in the future. What I love is that if you want to just come in to have a beer and an appetizer you can downstairs but if you want to sit and eat quietly you can upstairs. It has a great atmosphere

Disappointed Valentine. Firestone’s has been my go to for special occasions. I love the Upscale tavern feel of this place -- My wife and I have share these experience with Firestone’s for over 20 yrs -- The Center Cut Tenderloin was ok, the Chilean Sea-bass with Coconut Curry was missing Coconut & Curry. We had been looking forward to the Chef’s Dessert Sampler, which we had ordered a month in advance as we had for years. Only to be told after dinner we weren’t getting a Chef’s sampler. We weren’t told this the two times we had to confirm, nor when we were seated. We were only told when we were anticipating the Dessert as we have for Decades before... Overall a disappointing experience, Service was not well-timed it took over 45 minutes to be served definitely not a great Valentines dinner. I actually went home and made Peanut Butter Pie and Chocolate covered Strawberries to make up for the evening....

Crab dip had zero crab in it. We have had a lot of crab dip both lump and not. Server kept telling us that people think there’s no crab in there because it’s not lump, but it’s in there. Don’t get me wrong, server was good but, you could tell by her response that they get several complaints about the crab dip. They did take it off the bill which was great! Also, the server was good but, could have been a little more attentive.
