At the heart of our culinary philosophy is an unwavering commitment to make every meal an extraordinary experience. Fuego-which is Spanish for fire-is a spirited celebration of the coastal cuisines of Mexico, Latin America and South America.

With a vibrantly colored indoor-outdoor dining room overlooking panoramic views of downtown Long Beach and the historic Queen Mary, Fuego is an amazing restaurant in Long Beach CA that specializes in mariscos (fresh seafood). Also featured is a generous array of antojitos (appetizers), as well as tacos, tortas and entrées.

The bar serves premium tequilas-the largest selection in the region-that may be sampled at the bar along with handcrafted margaritas and other signature cocktails. Fuego also hosts Maya Fiesta Domingo-a festive outdoor brunch featuring Baja-style seafood and savory barbecue accompanied by live Latin Jazz.

Specials

I checked in but they contacted you that I had not. Had to call them and hopefully they relayed that we were there. Wonderful setting but overpriced. Wonderful service. Great food

It was a nice quiet restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean, the lighthouse. It was just an amazing experience!

What a stunning location. We sat on the patio, and the view of the Waterfront was quite lovely, but as we watched the full moon rise over the Waterfront, it went to STUNNING. For that alone, I'd give it 5 stars. I have to admit, I was reluctant to go to a "hotel restaurant", but I'd go back in a heartbeat. The menu wasn't too extensive, but everything was well prepared and tasty. The cocktail menu was great. The service was top-notch, and they had plenty of heaters to keep the diners warm in this frigid California winter.

It *is* a bit of a schlep to get there, due to all the construction on the 710, but it was totally worth it.

The food at Fuego is always delicious! Table favorites were the beet salad, Chilean Sea Bass, and vegetarian quinoa sofrito. The view is amazing and the ambiance is refreshing. Just missing the live music on Christmas Day. We will definitely be back as this is one of our favorite spots for celebrating!

Great views - but food wasn't very hot when it arrived and it was hard to get our waiters attention when we wanted to order more drinks. It appeared to be under stafed.

We were there for the Maya-chi brunch. It was a beautiful day and a great time. The service was great. There was no rush to leave. So we were able to sit back, relax and enjoy the meal and scenery.

Food was delicious. Server was extremely nice. Wine was great for the price.

the $12 cremebrule was a disaster. I would have given them 5star despite being excessively expensive, had they given me a decent desert.

The brunch on Sunday is phenomenal! And with a choice of entrees in addition to the buffet and staffed taco bar-inclusive of the first mimosa, it’s a great value! A band and singer playing soft Latin sounds set the mood and the relaxing hues of the bay sealed the package. A lovely day!!

Prior to 9/29/19, had not been to Fuego in nearly 10 years. We did not have a bad experience last time, it just was not memorable- save for the view.

On 9/29, my wife, mother, godmother and I went for Sunday brunch. We were seated immediately and had a great view of the bay. Due to the size of Fuego, the offering is not tremendous, but it was all delicious.

Aside from the dining they had a band, T Latin Jazz Experience. The bandleader was lively and did a great job engaging the diners. It felt like we were having Sunday brunch in your backyard, with a great band and even better locale.

The service was great. Our server was Carmen. Carmen did a wonderful job; she was pleasant, and accommodated all of our needs/requests. When we asked to speak to the manager, Carmen became nervous, but we reassured her it was positive.

Our go to brunch spot has been Catalina Kitchen, at Terrenea, for the last few years. Catalina Kitchen has more offerings, but the food at Fuego was just as good. The views are a push- ocean (Catalina) and bay (Fuego). The music... in all the times I have been to Catalina Kitchen, only once do I remember live music. Meanwhile, T Latin Jazz Experience is at Fuego 3x per month; the other Sunday, there is a mariachi band. Lastly, the price at Fuego was better.

My husband and I were celebrating our 12 year wedding anniversary and brought our kids along with us. Everybody who worked there were super friendly and the service was great. They even brought us each a glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. While the meals were pricey the food was excellent. The guacamole was just OK but the Seabass and shrimp adobo entrées were excellent! The kids meals were what you expect from a kids menu and the cookie dessert with ice cream on top was delicious. Overall we had a super fun time and you can’t beat the view! I would definitely recommend this place.

Worst service ever. We were sat and then watched 3 other tables get sat, served drinks, and just got service staff avoiding eye contact so they didn’t have to deal with us. We finally complained to the Dir of Ops who didn’t offer an apology, just the promise they would take care of us from that point, which they did not. Random ppl came by the table, couldn’t tell who would be our server, they cleared our table when we got up to get dessert. We had to ask for beverages, napkins and utensils back and once we were actually done, not a person in sight. Had to get up to the host stand and wait for 15 more minutes until they could find the person who had our check.

Terrible, especially for the price.

Great service. Nice location. Great atmosphere.
Not enough variety on the menu but would still come back coz it’s not like I have tried everything on the menu even though I am saying not enough variety. A bit pricey but I guess one is paying for the ambiance, location, great service.
In fact we are coming back with 10 other friends this weekend (if nothing changes).

The location is amazing! The view incredible. It was a sunny day and we were expecting to sit by the water but there weren’t any available tables with shade although we had a reservation. We had to sit a little far from the water but the view was still pretty amazing. The food was good, but nothing to extraordinary, their taco station though.... wow amazing! And the chef behind the stand was soo friendly and helpful!

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Fuego because we were married at the hotel. I included this information on our reservation and from the moment that we walked in we were celebrated, and seated at a beautiful table with a view of the water. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure that our experience was special and romantic. I foresee us returning on subsequent anniversaries.

The view and the restaurant decor are lovely. The staff is so capable, attentive and personable.
The atmosphere is friendly... like a home town cafe.
We stayed in the hotel and it was wonderful to enjoy dinner and walk on the harbor path and back to our room.

A beautiful view back onto the Long Beach skyline. Open air lunch with very friendly staff.
My wife and I both had different tacos: fish & steak and they both very good. I would recommend they look at changing the sauce on one of them since they were both the same sauce which makes the tacos taste the same and yet fish vs meat.
I will go back and try other items on the menu.

With such a spectacular view of the water and harbor it is hard not to enjoy Fuego. The service we had was slow and several others were seated before us even though we had a reservation and had been asked to wait before the others came in. The music was great, the food was fantastic and we had an enjoyable time.
