Fantastic venue, a restaurant within a restaurant. The vibe from the staff was very positive, it must be a good place to work! The interior ambience was spot on with the rustic appearance of the original paper mill well maintained amongst and behind the modern adaptations to create a fun contrasting style without being as fake as most - this was a genuine paper mill in its past life! Highly recommended.

We ordered lamb rack and snapper snitty. Lamb was so hard and chewy. Snapper had an after taste like it had either gone off or close to. It lasted like dried fish. Reported this to the waiter who appeared concerned and went to the kitchen to check. After that all we received for the final bill with no explanation about the horrible tasting fish which we had to leave half eaten. Paid the bill and decided never to visit the place again. Will pass on the feedback to our friends too.

Our waiter for the night was lovely and very attentive, staff were great. However, felt like we were in a walkway for the other casual dining areas, which we actually were! When you are paying the prices that Firepit charge it should be more contained rather than the foodhall feel with large groups of people standing around your table saying their goodbyes to each other.

Firepit was a lovely venue to meet for lunch for a group of friends. The private rooms were excellent for having kids with us. Food was a bit expensive but overall a great experience.

Food was nice and brought out very quickly even though they were very busy. Found it a bit pricey for the quality of food. Had the pork ribs and did not like them. Will probably come back and try something different.

Decor very good with nice vibe. Menu was good but food generally disappointing. My friend's paella was terrible, the gnocchi had a great mushroom sauce but the gnocchi was really tough. The Angus Eye Fillter was well cooked and probably best meal on the table. Pasta Marinara was just okay. One of the waiters was very good but he was busy organising other wait staff that were not very well trained, so if we wanted anything we had to signal a waitress. Bit expensive for what we received. Would definitely go back to the Paper Mill for more casual dining, pizzas, coffee etc. but not keen on going back to Fire Pit.

Things seemed very unorganised , maybe too big to have good control over things ??
Food came out all over the place , 1 entree came out before the kids meals
We ordered 15 minutes before the entrees ?
Then received 1 kids meal ... waited for the 2 Nd , then again waited another 15 for the second entree . Was very annoying
Food wasn’t that great. The sauce in the mussels tasted like a lot of garlic had been burnt in there , it was strange .
Place looks nice but that’s about it

Good food , speed of service okay but generally a feeling of organized chaos , no clear responsibility for service of tables.
Will try again , hopefully with time or more training , could become a favourite.

Food was nice. Service needs drastic improvement.
Got our entree and drinks quickly. Waited 1 hour and then flagged down a waiter asking about our mains (during that time noone checked on our table or asked if we wanted more drinks - we did). Waiter went to kitchen to check on meals then never returned to our table to give an update. Finally another waiter checked on us, found out what was happening and gave an update (thats what u should do in service industry). Also gave us a couple free drinks.
When food finally arrived it was tasty.
You expect much better service at any restaurant but in particular if you are paying $200 for dinner for two (1 entree, 2 drinks, 2 mains and 2 sides)

Service is very good, food is ordinary. Steak just ‘burned ‘ in charcoal fire that’s it. Not much selection of food. Flat bread starter is good.

Looks pretty cool. Unfortunately there is ZERO parking in the area aside from ~20 on street car spaces which are taken up by the residents of the nearby apartments. Food took a really long time to come out as well. We only ordered an entree and two mains and it was around 40 mins for the entree to come out followed by another 30 mins for the main. They weren't even that busy when we arrived. Duck fat roasted potatoes were more like baton shaped hash browns and WAY too salty. Overall the venue looks really cute and if they pick up their game with the wait time and salt I'd go again.

The fire pit buffet choice was tasty, although the protein portion was extremely small. The was one small piece of meat to share between 5 people and 1 extremely small rack of ribs that consisted of 7 ribs only.

Yes and No in relation to recommending to a friend

Music was too loud - could hardly hear my friend's voice
Food was ok, we also did not wait too long for food to arrive
Overall price was on the pricey side for non-vegetarian food (could have been reduced by $5-10, perhaps
Staff were friendly, thanks

Just to have a better assessment about the place and food before making up my mind, I might visit again and hopefully by then, some suggestions made by customers would have been taken on board in enhancing customers' experience.

Since I leave in one of the buildings near your eatery, I can be a great person in promoting your food and place. So, I hope you will take my comments seriously and make some positive changes.

Thanks and I am really hoping I have not wasted my time typing this up when nothing is going to change.
Am hoping for the best!!

We paid $523 we had 6 adults and 4 kids..walked away hungry. It was my husband's bday and we asked to keep our ice cream cake in the freezer when we arrived at 6pm...it was left on the bench for 2.5 hours...a puddle...No offer of discount no apology...this was a birthday that was ruined...Our desserts came when we got up to leave nearly 3 hours later - horrible experience - would not recommend at all.

We had a great night at the firepit. As a table of 4 we ordered the Firepit set menu. It was good value.My only concern was the delivery to our table of all the plates at the same time created chaos!This will be something they need to attend to, it’s their menu so it’s not Saif the customer has ordered too much to fit on the table.Apart from that we had a great night !

Pork ribs over cooked/dry
Not worth $60
Kids meal was good

Amazing service, especially the valet parking service as parking in that area of Liverpool is very difficult. Food was mediocre - taste was good but steaks were tough and chewy (asked for medium-cooked steaks), gnocchi wasn't the best. Meals are overpriced for what you get served (ie portion and quality). Desserts were nice and portions were big - can share one of any between two people. Overall, good experience.

Everything about this place is COOL, The atmosphere was amazing, the Food was almost perfect, The staff are Friendly and our waiter was even joking around with us so thats good.
Just a Top Notch place.
They also have Valet Parking but there was a 40mins wait on that so we just found a park somewhere.

Waiters were lovely however our food came out with no sauce when we requested 2 servings, when we ordered coffee and dessert half of us got it and the other half didn’t we ended canceling the order as it was getting really late by this stage. Coffee came out with no side spoon or sugar. Overall it wasn’t bad just a few things that need to be improved. I would come again and give it another go

Had the fixed fathers day menu on our first time here but overall the presentation, service and quality of food was pretty spot on. Will have to come here again to try the regular menu
