Food was just ok, disappointed in the biscuits but our mimosas were tasty. Service was slow and not very customer service friendly.

Second time to Bonfire and it did not disappoint. We sat on the sidewalk and it was lovely. Server was attentive but not hovering. Food was great and OMG, the frozen mimosas were wonderful. Ambiance is nice too a cute little place on Carson. Definitely put Bonfire on your radar.

Second time at this place. Sat outside again. Menu, food and drinks are great. Staff is excellent. They accommodated my wife’s dietary needs (Vegan-ish).

Overall it’s a nice spot with tasty food. Very oily but it’s comfort-like food. Our server was really great but the drinks took FOREVER… we waited for 25 minutes on water and our drinks from the bar. We had our entrees but no drinks. They were great about food allergies tho.

So delicious! A little pricey and a LOT of bread-based items. We had the Ginger BBQ Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps = to die for! and a frozen Aperol Spritz which was delicious for appetizers. We shared the Kale Salad and the Fried Chicken and Pickle Flatbread as well as their lowest priced white wine. They were all decent and unique. We enjoyed the Caramel Croissant Bread Pudding which was very sweet but delicious and I ended with an espresso martini. Overall, great experience for a $125 date night.

Sat at the bar. Really good food and service. We used to eat at Avenue B, and were in the South Side for an event and decided to try this. While not exactly the same restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised.

Bonfire was on my post Covid19 restaurant lit. Not sure we're post yet but we went. It was awesome. We loved the broccoli and corn apps. The Flatbread 🫓 with street 🌽 and chorizo was amazing. Go now!!!!

We sat outside. The music speaker was right over our table. We asked that it be turned down a bit but I never felt that it was adjusted. Other than that, great food and service. Too bad location is on the Southside. I heard morning news that there had been a stabbing right at 21st and East Carson sometime that night. I probably won’t be back.

We were disappointed by the indifferent wait staff. With COVID cases rising rapidly in the Pittsburgh region, the staff was not wearing masks like most other food establishments. The noise level was very high for a nearly empty restaurant. We were told they could not do anything about it. The food was good, but pricey for what you get. I don't see this restaurant surviving.

A perfect evening sitting outside. Our server, Michael, was wonderful, and we didn't wait long at all for our did to be served. The mussels were tender, and in a light tomato sauce, and the Mushroom mac and cheese was to die for, creamy, cheesy, with a crisp browned top. The Cuban Fatty was toasted to

I wish the starters ( Brussels and biscuits) were larger portions and the omelette seemed slightly overpriced for being filled with corn and tomatoes. The presentation was fantastic and everything tasted great

Foods amazing - def get the pork belly lettuce wraps, the steak, the salmon, and the spicy cocktail. I didn’t sit inside but it had a nice ambiance inside and would be a great indoor seated restaurant. Want to come back and try the brunch!

Bonfire has a warm and inviting vibe that is enhanced by excellent service from the staff. The draft list is a carefully selected mix from local and top regional craft breweries, and the cocktails are fun and refreshing. We had the mussels and roasted Brussel sprouts to start. The mussel broth was tomato-based and delicious, so be sure to ask for extra crostini for dipping. The salmon, Nashville (not too) hot sandwich and house burger were all very good. The side of greens in lieu of potatoes for the sandwiches was a welcome offering. Will definitely dine here again.
