We went there for our anniversary dinner and was surprised to find there are only 2 dinner items on the entire menu. The rest was "sharable" bar food. We left and went someplace else for a nice dinner.

Don't go with expectations, there is no hostess to seat you, and you will be eating dinner in a open hotel lobby, not a restaurant.

This was very much a lounge and not really suitable for a sit down meal. Good for drinks and a bite with a larger group.

Great place to gather, whether inside by the fireplace or up on the rooftop! Food selection was great and everything we had was very tasty. Service was great as well! Highly recommend for a casual, relaxing evening.

Intrigued by the tapas menu, we dined at The Firebrand Lounge on a balmy Friday evening. We basked in the beautiful weather, enjoyed music attuned to our ears—not so loud you can’t converse.

Our server,Johnna, was enthusiastic, exemplary, and accommodating to all my (many) food allergies.

We enjoyed a bottle of Decoy 2015 Zinfandel and shared the
Crab stuffed peppadew, Togarashi crusted ahi, Crispy calamari, Pork potstickers,
Duck sliders, and Wagyu sliders.

Each plate was creative in tastes and presentation. We highly recommend this fun dining spot and suggest you request Johnna as your server.

Tapas style menu. No liquor license, so only beer and wine available. Overall, good food, but small portions being tapas style and lack of ability to order mixed drinks, bourbon or other cocktails sent us elsewhere after dinner.

Great atmosphere! The food and service were fantastic. Portions were small. It would be great to have a few more "Meal" options. It was not busy when we arrived but with self service seating, I am not sure how it would have worked when we had a reservation if all of the tables were full?

My husband and I took his mother to Firebrand for dinner for mother’s day, and she is pretty picky about her food! She loved every single bite and wants to go back as soon as possible! Everything about our dining experience was perfect — the waitress, the food, everything was enjoyable!

Love the old Barnwood Decore and the general arrangement of the bar and dining area. Great food, good wine, and reasonable prices.

My sister and I like to try all the different restaurant in the valley. We finally made it to the Firebrand and were not disappointed. On a side note, my daughter and her husband did the barnwood interior. They are the owners of MKM Reclaimed and she highly recommended we try it.

We spent our last night on a trip to Glacier at the Firebrand and ate in the Lounge. The "meals" are more tapas style, and the two of us shared five different orders. That was way too much food for retired seniors and the problem was, everything was so delicious that we ate it all. I was especially impressed by the gnocchi (Yes, the gnocchi! It was incredible!) The chef's special dish that evening was scallops on Forbidden Rice, and that also was fantastic. This chef is very creative and knows exactly which combinations will go best together. The service was also very good, which we expected--two nights in this hotel and everyone from the front desk to housekeeping was super friendly and considerate. Our entire trip was amazing, but we both agreed that when we return, we will stay the entire time at the Firebrand and eat there whenever possible.

Although gnocchi was tasty there just wasn't enough (maybe 5 small ones). Waitress said she was embarrassed to bring it out. At my utter shock and disappointment they did rectify the situation and brought me more. For the price and considered a main course it was more like an appetizer. Portions definitely could be larger! Probably won't go back.

We went with another couple for a dinner out. The music was annoyingly loud and finally turned down after multiple requests, then turned back up again after half an hour. This was during the dinner hour. It was more of a club scene than a dinner atmosphere. Maybe this is what their target is but we did not know that. I would not go to dinner there again.

The food was good but the options or choices were slim. Basically two entries. You can kind of mix and match salads and apps to make a meal. Wine was average. It is basically a large bar with bar table seating. It certainly doesn't stand up to the magnificence of the building from the outside. This is not fine dining but it was acceptable.
