Sat at the bar, and had some of the best bar experience ever! Our bartender was Maycie and she was an absolute delight, made the night that much better! Highly attentive, great suggestions, and knew what food would go well with what cocktails or wine, would definitely come back ! Never thought we would like octopus but they have a chargrilled version that just blew our mind away! Thank you!

Half off wine night for the win! We've been waiting a while for somebody to bring back a nice wine night in the city, and this place hits the spot! Perfect for all the food options they have as well, and its tapas style, so great way to enjoy friends, wine, and fun!

This place had such a diverse menu, there is definitely something for everyone! From meat, seafood, to even some vegan options , we were impressed with the eclectic menu and variety! Fun experience for sure, vegan cauliflower, wagyu skirt steak, gambas and octopus were some of the dishes that stood out. Everything was great though , will visit again!

Service was a little slow to start with, but our waitress got sat 3 tables at once so completely understandable, and rest of the night everything was perfect! Food was great, manager came over to apologize about the slight delay in beginning, but it wasn't really that big a deal, our food came out great, and drinks were good too! They had a half off wine night special going so we got a bottle as well! Our experience overall was great and we will be returning!! Thank you!!!

We had a great time for Sunday dinner, and a beautiful way to end the week. Delicious food, very show worthy drinks, and great service! We might have to make this a Sunday dinner regular thing, beats having to cook at home!

We had been wanting to try Fireproof for a long time, but were disappointed in the service. We were seated at 8:15, it took 20 min for drinks, and then another 45 min after that for one appetizer, so we took the check and left after that at 9:20. No hard feelings towards the server, he seemed very stressed and overworked; just not the experience we had hoped for. Appetiser was good, though!

Can't say enough good things about our experience, our bartender Garett was wonderful, made great recommendations, and was very personable! Food came out wonderful, and everything was shareable which let us try so many new things. Never had grilled octopus before, but however they made it , it was really good! Great dumplings, and pork belly as well. Cocktails wise they had a nice selection, i love sangrias so i had the red and white sangrias and they did not dissapoint! Highy recommend this place!
