A mix of styles the current structure was built in 1891 as the Lord Mayor’s Supper Room. In the 20th Century, it was used as a cultural centre before returning to its original purpose of serving supper when it became a restaurant. The soaring ceilings of 19th century, stained glass windows and bronze sculptures are a few elements of this magnificent dining space. FIRE also offers outdoor dining on the terrace overlooking the Lord Mayor’s Garden.

Great location. Great lounge waiting area. Food very good to excellent and promptly served. Great buzz but noisy. Great wine list. However my only issue with fire was that the wine was not chilled sufficiently and I had to add ice. A bit much for a €40 bottle of wine. Apart from that all good and I will return.

Lovely place. Staff attentive. Was very very busy but service was prompt. Bit noisy for me BUT I think it was just particularly busy coming up to Christmas.

We were told that we had to be at the restaurant 15 minutes prior to our reservation which was at 21:45. So we were there by 21:30. We were then told to wait at the bar and they would let us know when our table is ready. So by 22:00, we were still waiting so i followed up with them and said that our table would be ready in “a couple minutes”. By 22:15, we were still waiting so we followed up again and we were told that they forgot about us and we saw people who arrived after us, got their table first. So we needed to wait “another 5 more minutes”. By 22:30, we were still waiting and we followed up again, which them prompted them to finally bring us to our table. By the time we got to our table, we were then rushed to order our food as their kitchen was closing. I would just like to say that the waiting time was horrific. If it was a busy night, previous customers should have been made to leave as it says 2 hours max only for dinner according to your website. And the service made us rush our orders, even though it was not out fault that we got our table late. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Had an amazing night at Fire. The wait staff were very attentive and polite and the food was amazing. Their christmas decorations were also lovely.
I had ticked the box to say it was our anniversary on the OpenTable app, and didn't think that anyone would read it. When our desserts came out it had "Happy anniversay" written on it which i thought was a nice touch and showed they actually took the time to read your details.
Would definitely recommend and will be going back again.

I've ordered a steak with some chips and while it was delivered quite fast, the steak was quite fat and the chips were undercooked. Starter, sides and desert were great. Also the staff was very friendly and welcoming however the main was very poor in quality. Cost to quality did not match.

Waitress
She wanted us to order our dessert when taking our order - she got annoyed with us when we said we would like to wait until after our main course until we ordered our desert as we would then know what me would be able to manage ( mumbling under her breath about kitchen staff would not happy )
She wouldn't lift our pates from the table gestured for us to hand her our used plates - which we did after our starter but I refused to do so after ….
She had no redeeming quality's that we could see not in the least bit pleasant - Put a damper on our day our with my Husbands elderly Aunt - We ending up not tipping which is a thing we never do ……..

The staff were simply amazing. The atmosphere was nice and christmassy and they sat us away from large groups so we could hear each other which was thoughtful. However the food was not up to standard. Very bland and very disappointing.

We had a lovely evening for my daughter's graduation and my younger son was accommodated with an a la carte menu as he just wanted a main course. This made for a pleasant experience and we would love to return at another time.

Booked for our Wedding Anniversary. First time to go. Atmosphere and service very good. However main course was a while arriving, probably due to a lot of Christmas parties. When mine arrived is was all but cold. Brought it to the attention of the waiter and both mine and my husbands meal were re done. Very professionally handled. Food when we eventually got it was very good. The desserts were amazing.

My girlfriend and I went for dinner in Fire on Saturday. The food and service were incredible. I had steak and chips and she had the lamb. Even though the restaurant was really busy with multiple Christmas parties going on the waiting staff were so attentive to make sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend going there.

We arrived early which was no problem. Greeted by very friendly staff who always made sure that we were ok for everything but without intruding. My goats cheese starter and steak main we’re amazing. Really enjoyable afternoon in a great setting and we are looking forward to our next visit.

- very slow to be shown table, at least 30mins past the reservation time. Other than that service was good
- food excellent if a little on the price side
- my guests loved the room and general location
- very noisy, don’t expect a relaxing dinner. But good for business discussions as no one will overhear!
- definitely not for a romantic dinner for two, but great location for large groups and business entertainment

Hoped to be in the main room as I had booked well in advance but ended up in the outside room and the service was not great - food was OK but overpriced from what we got

Unfortunately Fire is probably the most dramatically overpriced restaurant I have ever been in. It's a unique venue and the food is good, but that can't overcome the feeling of being absolutely robbed by their prices. For the kind of food, ambiance and service you get it's simply way overpriced. We had a voucher but still felt robbed. A main course of frankly ok standard being charged at Michelin star prices (and more!) Is unacceptable. As for the service, it was slow and apart from the maitre d who was friendly and attentive, the rest of the service staff were cold and unfriendly. I wouldn't go back and far from recommending it I would actively discourage people from wasting their money here.

Our experience at FIRE was a really pleasant one. All the staff treated us exceptionally, and made us feel really special - and went all out with a little birthday celebration on the dessert for my partner before I even had to ask them. I will definitely choose FIRE again - for both amazing food, brilliant staff and tasty cocktails!

This was our first time eating here. I booked it as my husband and I were having a rare date! The atmosphere of Fire was better than I could have imagined. The Xmas decorations enhanced the already beautiful dining room. While it was busy we never felt imposed upon and we really felt like we had a lot of privacy despite being surrounded by people. The food was fabulous as was the service and we were really made feel very comfortable. It was really good value for money and we had such a lovely evening.

Brought some clients to Fire Restaurant for dinner and it did not disappoint, atmosphere was great, excellent service and the food was delicious, had a decent wine list to. While not cheap you certainly get what you pay for.

I will certainly be going back.

Thank you all so much for looking after the team at Daon, a large group but everything went very smoothly and they all loved their meal.
We will definitely be back for more 5 star service at Fire, thank you all.

Every aspect of the visit was flawless, we got a warm friendly greeting and the waiting staff were all very knowledgable, friendly and prompt. The menu suited all of the parties needs and wants and was very good value. I have been multiple times and still rank it as the best I've been to, so good it's where I chose to pop the question to my now fiance.
