First time being there...I didn’t know there was a time limit. My friend and I felt rushed and there won’t a lot of people. I won’t recommend this place to anyone.

The food and ambiance were good. The Marina was quiet being Covid times. The service was excellent. I just wish they had more offerings, the menu seemed limited, but, I found an excellent choice on the appetizer menu.

Our experience wasn’t the best and we went on a Monday night. Our host was the best worker there in my opinion. She was the only person that got anything done, from keeping our table for us to turning on our heater outside almost 30 mins after we asked our waiter. Our waiter was horrible and this left us with an unpleasant experience. The drinks were better than the food and parking isn’t the best. But over all the view is nice but book a reservation before you go like we did. Hopefully your experience is better than mine :)

As always, the food here is top notch. Creative, fresh and well plated. The service is very friendly and covid-safe but we were left hanging for a while before taking our orders, and not informed that we'd be given bottled water instead of tap. There were enough heaters for everyone and they have the tables 6 feet apart with a tent overhang to help keep the heat in and sun out, but without tent walls that we know reduce the needed air circulation for covid. Beautiful views. Was able to keep the calories down with the mushroom spinach risotto and street corn; spouse loved the chicken and kiddo scarfed down the bacon cheeseburger. Amazing fried plantains, too. We'll be back! Appreciated using the Travelzoo voucher. Maybe this is why they were totally full on a Monday night?

Overall you can't go wrong with dinner at Fuegos. The view of Long Beach skyline and the bay to go along with food, what more can you ask for?? The service was on point. The restaurant was a little pricey, but you do get what you pay for.

Have been going here for years and the staff is fantastic.... that being said, the food just is not that great besides the burger

... seems like some dishes are an experiment... would love to see the food rally and match the incredible view.

I have been to Fuego many time before the Covid Pandemic and stayed at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach. I remember how clean and elegant Fuego used to be. I was disappointed it was not very tidy, the tables were not being cleared quickly. We went for lunch but I recall linen on the tables, this time the tables were bare. I also recall the food was good. This time the food was not tasty and I was extremely disappointed with the plastic container the hummus was served in and the lack of elegant ambiance. It was not a great experience this time.
The view of the water is the only good thing that remains.

We went for Valentine’s Day and at first my husband didn’t like that it was a set menu because we LOVE the food here but when his stake came it was delicious and so was my risotto. The restaurant also gave a rose to al the ladies, which was so cute. The view was amazing the service was great. Awesome experience ❤️

The salad portion was small as compared to the price for the appetizer. Understanding that it was Valentines Day but the service, especially waiting for the main course was slow.

We had a reservation, we were seated right away. Getting in was a little confusing as there were signs everywhere which took us to a big loop down some stairs.
The food was delicious. We had crab cakes and heirloom carrot salad ti start. The sauce for the crab cake was divine. My husband had the sea bass and I had the filet mignon, both were delicious. The drinks were good, not out of this world but we also ordered pretty boring drinks (a margarita on the rocks and a vodka mule). My only complaint here is that we were charged for water ($3 for a little plastic bottle). It seems wasteful both for plastic, water and money.
The ambiance was great. We had a lovely view of the water. The heat lamps were set comfortably. There was a classical guitarist that was delightful.
All in all, I would go back.

Wonderful Valentine's Day menu. Lovely crab cakes as a starter. The filet was outstanding. Perfectly charred on outside and cooked to perfection on the inside. Subtle, but delicious sauce with some blue cheese to top it off. Drop dead delicious ganache cake for dessert. Incredible guitarist set the mood and of course, the view does the rest. Great service, great time.

This was by far the worst Valentines Day dining experience I have ever had... EVER! First of all, we had our reservations at 4pm and did not get seated until 4:25. We over heard a few of the staff on how they were behind due to some unforeseen circumstances, that was understood, it happens. We get to our menu and they had a “Valentines Day” menu, very limited options with nothing that was appetizing in the least bit. My wife and I enjoyed delicious Spicy Palomas and we left to go eat elsewhere. We would’ve appreciated if we would’ve been informed on the menu because we would’ve gone elsewhere from the very beginning. Terrible Valentines Day.
