    Had a Valentine’s Day dinner here, we were seated right in front of the live performer which was awesome! I had the trout and it was delicious! Was our first time here and me and my husband were impressed with our overall experience. Will definitely come back.

    We have gone to many restaurants in Whitefish having a family home here and just have never been to the Firebrand. Could not have imagined a better ambiance. Great wait staff and incredible food. We ordered one order of house chips and ordered a second order right away. The burger is outstanding. We also had the bbq chicken which was really elevated with a sweet potato puree and perfectly charred bok choy. Please order the hot rock wagu. It’s delicious and a super fun experience. I had the seabass that had a miso, radish, bok choy combo that was insane and the fish was cooked perfectly. They also have a kids menu which made it easy to feed the littles. We were sat by the fire place next to the Christmas tree which was stunning. To top it off, they had live music. 10/10, we will add this to our go to restaurants.

    Regrettably, our visit left us disappointed. The service lacked guidance on responsible drinking and food allocation. A member of our group received an inadequate prawn dish and was informed belatedly about a solution. Enhancing staff training would be valuable. Our experience highlighted gaps in service provision and knowledge.

    Food was good but very expensive given portion size. Margarita was very small. Salad was composed of 8 pieces of lettuce? Not properly mixed. Dessert was good. Burger was OK but the burger lacked seasoning and any sauces.. Restaurant was honestly filthy. Watched a hotel guest walk into the main bar/venue in a bathrobe and without shoes on.. ew.. their menus have never been cleaned and the table surfaces were covered in old smudges.. Honestly wouldn't go here again. Staff nice.

    This may have been the worst meal out I can remember in recent memory. The menu sounded interesting but execution was uninspired. They did take the extra step for some fancy plating, but that did not make up for the complete lack of flavor and overall disappointment my group felt in all of the 6 dishes we ordered.

    I don’t typically leave entirely negative reviews but this encounter stood out. After standing unacknowledged at the hostess podium for 8 minutes and arriving on time for our reservation we were seated by the hostess who had earlier walked by us 3 times with no acknowledgement. We then proceeded to wait for an additional 20 minutes for a server who also had walked past us more than twice. The restaurant was not that busy, it was loud and the hostess was rude. Service did not appear to be of any concern. Perhaps why it wasn’t difficult to get a reservation there. I doubted kitchen service was going to improve so we left.

    Ordered the Wagyu steak and the hot pot. Steak was severely overlooked, everything was cooked on the grill and had too much char. Portions were small and the prices were slightly high. We also ordered the charcuterie board which was good. Service was good.

    Horrible experience. Decent food (what we were actually able to order). Server incorrectly entered food we did not order and delivered food to our table what we did not order. Poor attention to detail. Also numerous items we ordered were not available. Just poor planning on their behalf. Then when the check comes the items we did not order and those we ordered that weren’t available were on the bill! Cmon… you know what we had and didn’t even bother to ensure it was accurate????? Perhaps it’s time for some top down training. I’d avoid this place until they get their act together. Not worth it when there are better places nearby.

    Well, we will probably not be back. There was one server last night and he was trying very hard. What we noticed was that your food quality and variety has gone down considerably. This hotel used to be a destination of ours, sadly, it has come to an end. For instance, when we got to our room, the refrigerator was full of other items from the previous guest. Goodbye.

    Your system doesn't work. We had a great evening. I described it with compliments to our server and the greeter who seated us. But then your system wouldn't let me submit my comments. The only option was to "go back". You need to check your system and work out the bugs.
