We had a party of 14 and made a reservation. Once we all arrived we were quickly sat. The food was great. Absolutely love the Fajita sauce, makes everything so tasty. Great prices, great atmosphere and look. We go a few times a yr.

Sunday brunch with family traveling here from California. The restaurant was not crowded when we got there so there were no lines. The food was decent, and you choose your own. I love being able to select from a wide variety. Once more people were arriving the space got a little crowded and people were waiting in short lines. Overall a good experience.

I took my family there this past Saturday for lunch (1:30pm) for my sons 19th birthday.
We had to ask someone how it works, as nobody informed us.
It was very busy, there were no lines or organization to the different food stations. My daughter (age 25) was so overwhelmed after standing in the pasta/grain area for 10 minutes she went back to the table and sat down.
I too was extremely frustrated with rude customers, no lines and no direction. At the sauce station there was a young adult (early 20's) sticking his finger in each of the sauces to taste them (gross). Several sauces were empty.
I went up to the hibachi with my small bowl of raw ingredients (raw chicken on top of all other ingredients..gross) and waited 10 minutes before putting my bowl down in frustration and going back to my table. 3 out of 5 us could not do the hibachi.
I explained to my waitress my frustration. She was very good, she said that she understood and that she wouldn't be able to do it either. She said it's not typically that crazy. She then spoke to her manager who took the 3 meals off the bill.
I was hoping for something fun, delicious and memorable for my sons birthday but unfortunately it didn't turn out that way.

All you can eat salad, pasta, stir fry. Expensive for the quality. Good for big groups. Cocktails are alright, super sweet and over the top if thats what you're looking for

We love Fire and Ice. We are so sad that there is only one on the east coast! We went a wedding in Danvers, MA this weekend and made a special trip into Boston for Fire and Ice. It is fun, a way to shake up the "eating out doldrums" where you don't feel like cooking, but you are tired of the usual fare. Our children enjoyed it and honestly, if you only order the meal--it's not that much more than fast food for four--except healthier and way more satisfying!

We always stop into Fire + Ice when we are in Boston. Usually the food and service is great, however this last visit was disappointing. We made a reservation and still had to wait almost 30 minutes after our scheduled reservation time (we got there 5 minutes early). The food was either overcooked or undercooked, the chefs didn't seem to be able to coordinate the cooking times.

This isn’t the ideal place for a laid back easy going person. It’s a food eating club. All you can eat, loud thumping music and flashing lights. I’ll never be eating here again. It’s pretty overpriced for what you get as well. Cheap food, poor quality meat at a premium because of quantity.

Its just not my cup of tea. I have allergies so my food couldn't even be cooked out front. I did not know I would have to wait on lines to get raw food. Looking at the steps up to the dining restaurant and floor in restaurant it was very dirty. Too loud. Really nothing I liked about it.

Definitely a tourist attraction because of the presentation and preparation of the food, not because the food itself is good. My friend and I don’t plan to visit again due to the bland food and crowded dining room. Seeing the check was also a shock given the subpar quality of the ingredients and experience.

This was my second time at Fire and Ice and I can't wait to go back! The food and drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was buzzing and energetic. The only complaint was that we (our group of 3) were there for about 2 hours and the waitress seemed to forget about us the last 45 minutes or so and it was difficult to flag her down to get the check. Everything else was great and contributed to a wonderful experience!

The food was varied and good, but the ambiance is a bit tacky. Music was good but loud. That meant that hearing the (very nice) wait staff was not always easy. Wasn’t quite sure the rules of the place before we went up to the buffets. Cooks were good at their jobs, if a little gruff. One seemed to roll his eyes at my daughter’s separate bowl of corn.
The visual of bowls of meats and fish on ice was a bit off-putting. The fish fillets were piled so high in the bowls that I was wary of the top pieces being chilled at all. I stuck with the more popular types as the bowls were emptier and so the fish was definitely kept cold.

I don't really understand the appeal of having to get your own food and stajd around to watch someone cook it but reviews seemed fun. No one really appeared to be having fun unless they were taking a selfie. Food was ok but didn't feel like waiting in line for the next round.

Do not go here unless you like loud noise, a chaotic environment and dirty floors. The first thing that struck me when I walked in was the trash all over the floors. The restaurant is super noisy and there are people milling about everywhere getting their food. Out waitress was nice but arrived with stained clothing and gave us bowls that were dirty;( I guess the food was fine but I honestly couldn’t get past the atmosphere to enjoy it. Never again....

My wife is a BIG fan of Fire + Ice. So, we took the kiddies there on vacation. Fire + Ice made a believer out of me! For a busy night, the service stayed on-point throughout our entire visit. The meat and veggie selection surprised me, especially since everything looked so fresh (even after 8:30pm when we arrived). I only wish there were more seafood options. Fire + Ice is definitely a must stop on my next trip to Boston!

Regular dinner price is a little on the steep side, but if you have a healthy appetite, and are willing to unbutton your pants a little, it is well worth the trip. Endless custom combinations you can make with the food is fantastic and the dinner chefs are nice and entertaining (sometimes flipping there spatulas and catapulting food for you to catch in your mouth). If you are a student, it is solidly recommended to go on Mondays for college night! The same all you can eat for half the regular price! If you're hungry, but don't know exactly what you're feeling, this place is great for making your own plate and satisfying everybody in your party.

Fire and Ice is always great. This time was no different. I wasn’t thrilled about where they insisted to seat us. Against a pole in the middle of the place. I marked it was a date, they could have given us a booth or at least out of the way where people weren’t constantly tripping over us. Also they couldn’t figure out how to get the open table tab to work - not a big deal.
