    We came in for Thanksgiving with reservations and we were seated promptly. Wasn’t expecting high top table but the ambiance was lovely. The food on the other hand was subpar but decent portions. The butternut squash soup was a thick glob. There wasn’t anything “soupy” about it, more like baby food. The turkey and stuffing was dry, the green bean casserole was standard and semi flavorless. Would have liked to have the option of ordering from the regular menu items. As far as the service, barely attentive. When plates are set to the side on a small high top, take them away before you bring the next course. Setting empty beverages on the side of the table is also an indication of request refill. We appreciate you being open and serving on a holiday, nonetheless.

    I was excited to try this restaurant! It was my daughters birthday so I was treating her. I don’t mind paying a lot of great food. But we had a $300 dinner for two btw - and the food was poor at best. The only thing we can rave about was the salad. Don’t waste your time. Go to Tupelos or Caio Mambos instead.

    We came to dinner to enjoy the music offered. We are followers of the band big sky city lights and enjoyed it tremendously. The food was good. The Calimari was soggy and I didn’t enjoy it. Wonderful atmosphere.

    Started off slow as they just sat us at a high top, not our preference. We quickly asked to go to a low top and they accommodated. Pricey for just ok food. Food came out before drinks which is a no no in my book.

    We enjoyed the music and our cocktails (French 77 and beer) but the food was lacking. Our steak was overcooked and the calamari appetizer was so salty it was inedible and we had to send it back. We will return and hope for the best because we enjoy the music, it's convenient and a nice space.

    They made a lot more money on our four person, $259 bill, than we ever got served to us. For instance, duck wings looked and tasted like cheap bar food or frozen from the market junk. My scallop (singular) was a half a scallop in 7 small slices, $23. Robbery. A mediocre Peach and Burrata salad and, ta da, a decent three fish taco plate, also $23. Drinks had fun names and good ingredient lists but proved to be uninspired. A shared $15 Profiterole afforded us each one bite!? Lucky to be with entertaining good friends, we had fun and never dwelled on the food but all agree, NOT AGAIN to Firebrand for food. We'll sit there and visit over a beer or something because it is a nice room and at the walking edge of town. Vacationers probably won't mind the place just because, well, it's vacation. As locals we know we have much better options for quality and value.

    This is a wonderful restaurant to celebrate anything special or to just go and enjoy a great meal. We were celebrating my daughter in law's birthday. Our server was tremendous, knowledgeable and friendly. We split three appetizers - Calamari, Shishito Peppers, and a Charcuterie board. All were excellent. the highlight of the evening was the Hot Rocks. We split multiple orders of scallops and wagyu beef. Absolutely delicious and a fun time. We topped off the evening with some wonderful Creme Brûlée. You should definitely go to this restaurant.

    Terrible service from our waiter. He acted like we were an inconvenience to him. After the very kind host sat us, we sat for over 20 mins before our waiter even came by. He never stopped to check in on us and we had to tell him we wanted drinks and to order dinner. Food came out fast, was mediocre. Took our waiter 20 min to bring our check and it wasn’t very busy. Save your money, not worth it. Ambiance was nice. Two thumbs down for your wait staff.

    We really enjoyed the live music, but were disappointed by the limited menu. We were told we weren’t allowed to order off the happy hour menu (and pay regular price) after 6:00. But quite a while after 6:00 other tables kept getting orders of happy hour apps. We also both ordered starters, which were brought out at the same time as our main course. It was a good environment, but the food left a lot to be desired. We’ve visited friends for cocktails at the bar before and I think we will stick to that in the future.

    We had a great Easter brunch. The food and service was great. Only complaint was the French toast with berries. It was $15 and the serving was 3 half slices of toast and about 8 blueberries. We had 4 people in our party order this and they all left hungry. Very over priced for the portion.
