    Our first visit here was AMAZING! Talk about FLAVOR, amazing flavor! The meat spoke for itself, we ordered the brisket and pastrami brisket, to die for! I will be coming here again, their smash burger had all the right textures, not soggy or mushed like you get at other places…., we were highly impressed, will be coming back 💕

    First time having Craft by Smoke and Fire, we were absolutely amazed. Food and drinks were phenomenal! Good bang for your buck. Our server Jesse was amazing. Very friendly, and attentive. Couldn’t have had a better experience. Definitely will be going back and requesting Jesse again. I’ve already spread the word about this place to my friends and family.

    My first experience at Craft deems a second visit! I was very pleased with our server whose name I don't remember, I think she was also the bartender. Her personality alone is a reason to come back. She was very helpful with recommendations and just all around pleasant. We enjoy our menu selections, well presented and tasty. I'll be back.

    I made a reservation but had to wait since the server was catching up. Which was fine but it was freezing in the restaurant and even colder by the door. Once seated our server came by with a nice smile and great service. The food was delicious but cooled down very quickly because it was freezing inside. They have a buy 1 get "juan" free drinks for HH which is fantastic. They also seem to comp the cheapest item of your order...

    Food was AMAZING! Especially the brisket quesadilla… OMG 😋… Our only issue was our waitress. Seemed like she didn’t really want to be there. We had to ask another server for more water because she never came by and when my son asked her for a refill of his drink, she took forever to bring it. Maybe she was having a bad night. It happens…

    The food was delicious just not much of a choice on the menu. It seems all the meat was brisket and no other types of meat but it was good it’s just everything was with brisket, I expected more barbecued types of meats

    My husband loves BBQ and we were at the arboretum enjoying a walk for his birthday. We decided to try Craft. We were very pleased! Food was amazing. Lamb chops, which didn’t expect to see at a BBQ place were fantastic! Brisket and pastrami flavorful and tender. Our server Megan went out of her way to explain the menu, answer our questions and make us feel welcomed. Will definitely be back!

    Ordered the lamb chops. They were undercooked and cold when they arrived at the table. When I brought this up to the waitress, I was given the excuse that because the kitchen was backed up, it would take quite a while to correct the problem. The mashed potatoes were also disgusting...they were thin, like soup. And several of the Mac and Cheese sides were undercooked. Although the wait staff was polite and cheerful, they were not very attentive. The cost was extremely high for such lousy sub standard food. Don't waste your money here!

    It was a Monday for sure. Service in the bar was abysmal. Only four customers between the bar and one high top. Everything took forever. Long periods of time with nobody behind the bar. Music was different tonight as well. Loud grunge which was not normally the case. Chili was very thick and dry. I really liked this place. Was at their Anaheim location on Saturday and service was awful then as well.

    Went here for the first time for scholarships award lunch and ordered the All American to feed 7 people. Myra was an amazing waitress and was very attentive. We don’t eat pork and count out that there is no pork on the menu. Food was delicious and will be back again.

    Me & My Family Were Celebrating Our Son-In-Laws 42nd Birthday & Decided To Visit Craft By Smoke & Fire’s Arcadia, CA Location.. We Had A Great Time! The Food Was Delicious & Portion Sizes Were Large. Needless To Say We Had Carry Out Containers When We Left. The Staff Was Nice, Cordial & Accommodating! Before Leaving We Were Deciding How Quickly We Would Return For Our Next Visit. Keep Up The Good Work & Thanks For Your Awesome Customer Service!

    I booked this restaurant for my dad’s birthday dinner. We were seated promptly, our waitress was friendly, and the brisket was good. That was about the only positives I have for this place. The service was very slow, our drinks ended up coming out after the food. The food came out in piecemeal and my food was cold by the time the rest of the table was served. The Mac and cheese came out like it was just pulled from the refrigerator. The Turkey breast was dry and came with no sauce/juice. It was also disappointing that there was not even an acknowledgement of the birthday. I do not recommend this place, please bring back Woodranch.

    I made a reservation here on open table. When I walked in and told them I made a reservation I was seated promptly. Our server was very nice and checked on us timely. When I finished my drink without asking she came right over and brought me another. The food came at a reasonable time of waiting, no complaints. We ordered all the smoke platter and it was delicious. I will definitely be back here when I’m in town. Thank you for a great dinner experience.
