    My partner and I came here for our late Valentine's dinner and were very impressed. The menu had a great selection of entrees, and I was super pleased with my meatloaf. We got the deconstructed smores for dessert which was the perfect end to our celebration dinner. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and answered all our questions regarding drinks. We will be back!

    Chef Chris Bonfili and his team have created an outstanding and delicious menu. My wife and I visited for Valentine's Day 2024 and had a delightful time. The entire team was warm, professional, and pleasant. The food and drinks are creative and yummy, and the portion size is perfect. We enjoyed ourselves very much and fell in love again (after being married for 37 years..!!)

    Loved the ambience and small menu. Food was great (meatloaf was stellar) and apps were delicious. I would skip the dessert; when you try to make desserts fancy/special… it seems to be more about presentation vs flavor. Sometimes you just want cake. Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely be going back!

    It is a nice place, the downstairs is energetic though very loud. The upstairs was more sedate and also oddly loud. I was looking forward to the food based on the menu, but overall I was disappointed. It took at least half an hour to get the cocktail we ordered which was just ok. The brussel sprouts were fabulous. We ordered the wagyu meatloaf and it was dry and without much flavor though the crispy onions on top were delicious. The chicken cheesesteak flatbread was strangely sweet, not crispy and tasted nothing like a cheesesteak (or even a good flatbread). The waitress was very nice, but service was slow. Might give it one more try but not rushing back.

    My husband and I dined at Bonfire during Restaurant Week Jan 2024. The waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive (just the right amount of interaction) and the food was delicious, pleasing to both the eye and the palette. We've always enjoyed the soups they served at the annual Southside Soupwalk and we were not disappointed at all with our first dine-in experience. Bonfire will be on our regular dining rotation going forward.

    The food that we had was very good, I had eggs benedict and my wife had the chicken skillet, and we both really enjoyed them. The hostess was very friendly and made sure that we were seated quickly. The server that we had, when she was with us, was very pleasant. There were times, however, that we sat with empty glasses for the better part of 10 minutes. Kind of a shame too, because the Bloody Maria that I had was extremely good. I ended up getting a second one, but not until after quite some time had passed. We would definitely go back, but would hope that the servers would be a little more attentive.

    Waited over an hour and half for a basic brunch after I seated . After a hour of waiting was told multiple times it would be a few mins. Ended up leaving 30 mins after that with no food.

    We had a wonderful meal here, the restaurant was loud, but we got a table outside, which was lovely. Our server Breton (sp?)was delightful and helped us with a menu. She was knowledgeable about the chef and the food and was really enthusiastic about both. The meatloaf was excellent and so was the pasta with leeks, corn and mushrooms. My casamigos margarita was just right! We will go back for sure.

    Cheese fries were the absolute best fries I've ever had, white pizza, burger, crispy potatoes, hanger steak - all excellent. The meatloaf was way way way too salty. The staff was eager to replace it but I had filled up on appetizers so my husband finished my delicious steak, and was happy to do it.

    We had a beautiful window seat, a welcoming and knowledgeable waitress who granted our every wish, and music that kept us feeling as upbeat as the jazz! The restaurant week menu was hard to choose from but sharing was actually encouraged! We would recommend everything we ate because each was a unique, tasty medley: baba ghounash toast-love those grilled grapes!; roasted Brussels sprouts whose accompaniments brought new flavors to these baby cabbages; the meatloaf had a surprisingly new kind of herby/earthy taste (exquisite!) and the salmon with watermelon salad was meticulously prepared to be one complimentary bite after the next. Portion sizes were perfect, so we could have the yummy, honey olive oil cake annd really great coffee. We waited for nothing, but when we two great friends could, we were able to whisper and laugh loudly. We’re sending everyone here!
