We had friends in from out of town; he is on a pretty strict diet including avoiding sugar. The waiter went to the kitchen and the chef modified the dish to accommodate. The food and service was fantastic.
Firestones is one of the best restaurants in Frederick downtown area. The menu is always unique and fantastic.
We have never had a bad experience at Firestone's. The treatment was exceptional by all staff members. I had noted on my reservation that I was bringing my sister here for the first time and they made a note of that and talked to us about Frederick and a little about the history of the restaurant and other places in Frederick. We had a wonderful time.
We were seated at 2:58 pm for our 2:30 reservation. After taking our drink orders, the waitress quickly told us that the "kitchen closes at 3. Needless to say, we felt a lot of pressure to get our order in. My wife ordered a quiche which, when served, was dry. Although she kept that fact to herself since she wanted to enjoy her family, she acknowledged later that her meal was not good. Ironically, she left a $40 tip because she loves her family.
The lemon meringue pie martini is amazing!
Great food, great service and pleasant atmosphere!
The Franco Burger was cooked to Perfection, what better use for Foie gras fabulous!
We had a lovely lunch and we were not in a hurry at all, but we noticed that the service was rather slow. We arrived early - 11:45 AM and met friends. The restaurant was not crowded.
This is not to complain about the Firestone, it is a lovely restaurant and I would recommend it to my friends.
Great food and service but a little noisy from bar area.
Love Firestone's and dinner was great!!
We have been to Firestone's in the past, and have always enjoyed it. However, we had not been there for awhile. We celebrated my husband's birthday with friends and found the experience there competely satisfying. The menu had sufficient variety, all of the food we ordered was delicious and came as per our specific requests (e.g., gluten free for one diner) and I was especially pleased with my Cosmo---many times I have found that when restaurants don't have a specific drink on their menu, they cannot make a standard drink well. I had also asked in advance for my husband's dessert to be brought at the end of the meal with a candle, and Firestone's followed through very well on that. I would highly recommend them.
PRETENTIOUS and overpriced-rather spend that much money at the Tasting Room
One of my favorites in Frederick. I go there often and the specials are always great. Although the bottom floor is a great bar, the restauraunt does not server "bar food". It is my top 3 fine dining experiences in Frederick
Firestone's has always been on our list of places to go for good food and fun. We especially enjoy the Sunday Brunch. We will continue to come back. PS making reservations online was easy and we felt like royalty coming right in and getting a table.
Nice jazz band along with a great brunch! Packed crowd for St. Patrick's Day and full of energy. We didn't want to leave! Will definitely recommend and can't wait to go back!
Great night dining in downtown Frederick.
The deviled eggs appetizer with caviar and tapenade was amazing. Also, the spinach salad was the best I've ever had.
A bit overpriced. My steaksalad was small for $16.00 and the steak came out welldone instead of medium-well and was dry.
One of the most consistently good restaurants in the Baltomore/Wash area. By far the best Ceasar salad around. They make it the way it should be made with fresh Romaine, hard boiled egg, crispy croutons, white anchovy and quality Pamesan dressed nicely with lemon and olive oil. Seared scallops wrapped in bacon over risotto with porcini and grilled cauliflower was outstanding! Combined with excellent service and chef Jack Walker's continued creativity in the kitchen, Firestones easily hangs with the big guys.
We (two couples) had a great time at Firestone's. Starting with the waiter who did an excellent job giving advice on wine, pacing the meal, no rushing through appetizers/salads to get main course on the table, which is more common than not these days and was very knowledgeable about the offerings and did a great job answering our questions.
The food was outstanding. I had the roasted beets and duck prosciutto as an appetizer-heavenly! Between the four of us we had the sausage, steak, Rockfish and scallops. All were excellent and each were deliciously unique in preparation and presentation. The cheesecake for dessert was devoured with smiles.
Thank you for a great night out Firestone's!
Of all of the Frederick Restaurant Week restaurant we went to, this was the best. The service was excellent, very attentive, knowledgeable, passaionate, and not obtrusive. The charcuterie plate, duck proscuitto and lamb carpaccio kicked off our very tasty culinary adventure. We were treated to chef's complimentary and sublime squash soup and pineapple sorbet in between courses. For our entres, the Diver scallops were perfectly done and very tasty, the goat cheese gnocchi dish was divine, and the hangar steak was fantastic. We felt we were having a prime foodie experience. Though we were a party of three, this would be a romantic place for a couple. The only negative is the noise level (it was Fri nite). Kudos to restaurant and staff!
The rockfish was amazing. Service was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant!
My husband and I love the menu here - always something new and exciting on it alongside some ever-present favorites (like the Cowboy Steak, yum!). The upstairs seating is wonderful with views of the streets of Frederick and the bar below. The chef sends out fun little samples of non-menu items in between courses which we always look forward to (last trip was an amazing potato leek soup and last summer we had a surprisingly good watermelon soup). Servers are excellent. We love the variety of beers (many local) and wine available.
Had another amazingly delicious meal at Firestone’s! When we got there, the hostess said they did have a table available, but if we wanted to wait a few minutes they were just clearing one off in the upstairs window—score! Had a glass of a nice, red blend at the bar and enjoyed the ambiance until all was ready.
How was it? Our table was awesome, the bread was awesome, the tiny cup of soup was awesome, the appetizers… well, you get the idea. I enjoyed my hanger steak—rare, and they mean it!—immensely, but not as much as the veggies and potato it was served upon; those were heavenly. It’s true that Firestone’s is pricey, but they always seem to deliver.
We have had brunch here several times and loved it. This was our first dinner here and absolutely loved it.
Great location in downtown Frederick; the décor is rustic and charming. Noise is loud but that is due to the acoustics. Food was delicious, although it seemed a little long from the time when we ordered at 5:15 pm to when the food arrived at 6:15 pm. Kudos to the entire serving team did an great job clearing our table and keeping the water glasses full!
A perfect place for our lunch gathering of 5 adults. It was neither too crowded nor too loud. The angus burger got great reviews. The fries are to die for (we smelled them walking in the door.) I recommend eating upstairs as it is a bit more intimate.
Went there Friday night for dinner with a party of six. The food was excellent. Our server Suzanne was a pro and really helped make the evening a success. We liked it so much we hung around for drinks at the bar afterwards. Great night out.
For the first time in the many years we've been going to Firestone's! We were disappointed with the food. The clam chowder was far too salty, almost too salty to eat, and the rock fish was so-so. However, our waitress was very good and properly attentive. As usual, the restaurant was very noisy. I want to emphasize that this was an anomaly compared to previous experience.
We have brunch here almost every Sunday. Love it!
This was the second time I have come to Firestone's and everything was simply amazing - especially the service, and the food. This last time we went on a Saturday night and it became a little noisy downstairs at the bar but we really didn't notice until we went to leave and had to walk through the bar. I would definately recommend sitting upstairs, especially if you have late night reservations on the weekend. Overall Firestone's has become one of our favorite resteraunts in the area!
My sister and I met at Firestone's for lunch to celebrate our birthdays. We had a table by the window, as I requested, and a delightful server who was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and when we ordered dessert, each arrived with a birthday candle. When the check was presented, we were told our desserts were "on the house." Altogether, a lovely experience. Highly recommend!
We went for brunch, the food was okay. The waitress warned that people were complaining the house cured ham tasted like turkey, this was a new one on us and we avoided all pork products.
Great Brunch, the FrancoAmerican Burger is Epic with a side of Truffle Fries...
The food was delicious but a little expensive. I was expecting at least $5 or so less per entree. For those on a budget (and who isn't these days with this economy) I would think this would be a bit much to pay. Very cool atmosphere. We choose Firestone to meet some friends we haven't seen in several years. It was very loud and the bar was loaded...it was 9:30 when we left the restaurant. Definitely a place i'd hang if i was into the bar scene. Overall a great place.
Food was delicious. Service was great. Was there for Valentine's day.
My husband and I went to Firestones for Valentines Day. The service was great and the food was even better! We will definitely be back!
Ate here at 6:30 on Valentine Day. Since it was a Thursday, the noise level was lower than on the weekends, but still noisy. Definitely not a place for a quiet retreat. However, we knew that and were perfectly satisfied. I only rated the food as a four star because my husband was less than satisfied with his lamb sausage. He said it was just spicy, not flavorful. However, my apple-smoked bacon-wrapped scallops were to-die-for!!! I'd go back just for them! Service was good. Only snafu was a request for bread was delayed until a second request was made. They do not rush you. We felt that we could have stayed as long as we had desired, but we had theater tickets. Reservations are a MUST.
Great food. Service was a just a little slow, but overall attentive.
This was our first time dining in Frederick and Firestone came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! The service was impeccable, the food was absolutely delicious and the ambiance was energizing. The Pear Salad was sweet and satisfying, the Halibut was warm and comforting and Bread Pudding was outstanding! We will be back
