Great place to build rapport over a business lunch-
Great eclectic menu - and well executed food on every level. Really interesting cocktail menu. Bone Marrow is lightsout good. Salmon had perfectly crispy skin but perfectly medium inside. Fun atmosphere
What a wonderful place. The food is excellent. Our server was magic, she knew when we needed her, and stayed out of the way until we did. And the food - we had 3 diners with allergies, gluten and dairy, and they not only accommodated our diets, but the food was incredible!
Firebox never fails to deliver great food and service. Always accommodating, Chris our serve worked with the kitchen to make some small changes to firebox favorites to allow guest in our party enjoy the food despite their dietary restrictions! Thanks to Chris and the kitchen team.
Firebox always provides great food in an inviting low key atmosphere.
Who knew Hartford had such a happening food scene? Firebox was hands down one of the best meals I have ever had! We came to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday all the way from Boston because we were in town for an exhibit at the Wadsworth. We started with the oysters, cheese plate, and soup of the day, all of which were wonderful. I had the duck and my boyfriend had the lamb bolognese and both were PHENOMENAL. Their cocktails were also on point. We had the carrot cake for dessert and decided that we would make the drive back to eat there again in a heartbeat (and are planning to do so soon!).
Brunch here was excellent! Firebox always has a good mix of standard and vegetarian fare. Their Eggs Benny (w/applewood bacon) were perfect and a new favorite of mine.
Make a reservation (but if the weather is bad you may be able to get in for brunch without one).
The Firebox never ever disappoints. The food & drinks are amazing. The music & ambience was great.
We tried this restaurant because it was a farm to table and it had great reviews. The dishes were creative and delicious with a wide variety menu. Excellent!
the food was very good. Our waitress was fabulous!
Over priced. 4 scallops for $32 that's insane. Service was lacking as well. I would return for brunch but that's it.
These are some of the reasons we enjoy eating at the Firebox: delicious, locally sourced food, warm and cozy atmosphere, excellent service, and quiet enough to allow easy conversation.
This was my second experience with Firebox and just as exceptional in every way like my first visit. Love the varied and changing menu filled with original culinary delights and twists on traditional features. The cocktail creations are as varied and creative as the food selections. Fresh local ingredients inspire mouthwatering flavors in everything they create. My husband and I invited our adult daughter and her boyfriend to enjoy Sunday brunch. All four of us had ordered different drinks and meals and everything was outstanding! I doubt they would serve anything less than perfect, but if they did they would bend over backwards to make things right. This business owner understands how to run a restaurant and that pleasing the customer is the only goal. I can't wait to return!
I had a very pleasing brunch date with a friend during this most recent visit to Firebox. As in the past, the food, service and atmosphere were top rate. I had the flannel hash (a healthy take on corned beef hash), tasty cranberry orange zip beverage, delicious salted chocolate pudding, and a very satisfying espresso. I'd recommend Firebox for brunch, everyday dining (especially in the tavern section), and special occasions.
We were seated promptly for our 6pm reservation. We told the waiter we had theater reservations for a 7:30 show. He assured us we would be out in plenty of time. We were not served our meals until 7pm. It was very disappointing. This is a restaurant that is used to pre-theater dining and it was not a pleasant experience. I will only return for lunch.
