I've been to Fuego on many different ocassions and have spent hundreds of dollars there. So, for my 50th birthday dinner, I knew that I wanted to go there to celebrate with 6 other people, including a visitor from Haiti. I made reservations for after church at 2:15.
Open Table nor Fuego Websites show that you only serve drinks and bar food between 2 and 5. After brunch is no longer served, most restaurants allow patrons to order from a regular menu, but you don't. My GPS said that you were closed at 2. So, I had to call ON OUR WAY THERE from Los Angeles to learn about the bar food between services. Do you know how hard it is to find a decent restaurant for 7 people on a Sunday immediately after 2:00 AND with a couple of kids who were hungry?
So, it was all bad.
Thank you for asking,
It was awf
Comfortable patio dining with great views of the Long Beach waterfront/ Queen Mary area. Really enjoyed the Sunday Brunch, the entree selections were good and liked the buffet options. Great live band provided the music.
Our night was filled with terrible service. I made a reservation weeks ahead for 9, when we arrived they were unprepared. It took them 20 minutes to seat us and then finally we were sat at a table a foot from the entrance and a foot away from where the servers ran up and down steps putting dirty dishes away. Every single time stomping up and down the stairs, I could hardly hear the person next to me. It took about 35 minutes for a server to greet us and take our drink order. We requested another table at this time too, which our server walked away and we did not see him again for another 35 minutes until he dropped off our drinks and left. At this time we had been there for about an hour and a half, received minimal service and and not once were asked if we would like to get our food order in. At this point we simply asked for the bill on the drinks that were ordered and left. Overall, you will receive terrible service if it’s a group.
Great food! Great margaritas and I’m pretty picky! Service a bit slow but pleasant! Would definitely come again!
Located out by the Queen Mary on Terminal Island, this out-of-the-way restaurant features quiet dining with a superb view of the downtown Long Beach skyline across the Los Angeles River. The ambiance is especially wonderful at dusk when the city lights come on. In addition to outdoor patio dining, huge sliding doors open the entire restaurant to the outdoors reminiscent of restaurants in the tropics.
We had slot of fun on Valentine’s Day, the only thing the service was really slow! Other than that loved it
food is amazing
This is a great spot to go and get dinner with that special someone. I was very happy with everything overall. The service is great, the food and drinks are delicious, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The entire staff is very friendly and polite too.
They switched out the normal menu for a special menu for the holiday. No one informed us it was going to be 100 per person for dinner. When they called to confirm the reservation they did not mention the holiday set price.
This place is pretty awesome. The food is delicious and the service is great. The view is amazing.
