Enjoyed a fabulous Valentine's Day dinner. Fuel is a constant satisfaction! You can't go wrong. We had the Lamb and Salmon and it was to die for!!!!
Second time eating here---food as good as it was the first time. I cook a lot myself, so my standards are high, and Fuel meets or exceeds them. Attention to details, such as the bread they serve and the waitstaff's wine knowledge add to the experience. Highly recommended!
Found out they are rolling out a new menu next week so are looking forward to checking out some new things.
I have been a long time patron of Fuel, and the experience there was nothing short of perfect! Our server, Autumn, is always cheerful and attentive to what is going on at the table and to making sure everything is delivered timely. Every part of the meal was cooked and presented perfectly! Steak was cooked to order, fondue was hot, bacon dusted fries were amazing, and dessert rounded out the evening with perfection.
I came on a Tuesday night for dinner with my son and a friend of his. We started with the escargot to start and it was excellent. The presentation was interesting in that the escargot were served over a bone with marrow and a velvety smooth demi-glace. It was amazing and the portion was very generous. The three of shared it and were quite happy with what we had. I had a caeser salad with anchovies that was very good, well dressed but not overly dressed.
My son and his friend had steaks that were cooked perfectly to the temperatures that they requested. I had the salmon that was grilled and cooked to a perfect medium and very moist.
I will definitely be back soon.
Fuel is a great place for a dinner, a drink oh and great deserts too!
Get the escargot with bone marrow.
Our server, Paul, was a great guy. Very knowledgable and very well-versed in the in's and out's of the menu. Could describe each dish as if he were the one who designed them.
I highly recommend anyone looking for melt in your mouth steak to order the au poivre. It's what I get every time because in four years, it's remains as delicious as the firs time I tried it! The fondue is addictive, I only wish they served it with the bread that they serve as a free appetizer, it would add some nice depth to the flavor experience-so maybe just save a piece to try for yourself! My husband always tries something new there when we go, and he is never disappointed. I had a bite of his scallops the other night-wow. I don't even like scallops typically but these were a pleasant surprise, especially with the sweet potato apple sauce paired with them. So yeah, I like the place. Worth the slight splurge!!!
The food was very good, but the noise level was so high that it was hard to carry on a conversation with our friends. I would have to qualify a recommendation with that information.
