    Another wonderful mean shared with my husband. The service and food are top notch! We shared the Brussel sprout salad, big huge steak. Wasn’t too much and felt very satisfied when we left. Think it was the best steak I’ve ever eaten!

    Decent place with good drinks, nice tapas offerings, and a festive ambience. Drinks were a bit weaker than I expected. The gentleman who served us (wish I remembered his name) was terrific. Overall, good place to go to once in a while.

    Food was great. The octopus and elote were definitely my favorites. I have only had octopus as sashimi. This was cooked and just melted in your mouth. Also had tostada, sliders (2) potatoes, mushrooms, Gambas Al Ajillo and ceviche (2). Split all between 5 people and it was plenty. Only negative was the draft beer was warm. Ended up trading them in for bottles.

    We enjoyed our first visit! The ambiance was elegant yet trendy, they had many great specialty drink selections (I tried 3 and a glass of rose', all were delicious!) Our waiter was knowledgeable and offered many great selections, and we sampled about 10 menu items. After we had ordered, we did see the benefit (and value) of ordering the "Chef's Special" which is only $72 per person and you get a sampling of the entire menu! We wished we had done that for our first visit - that is such a great offer!

    We went for my friend’s birthday. Ambiance is nice. Service was great. Drinks were good. Food was not good. Our table tried around 20 different items and only about half of them were decent. Shrimp was inedible; the sauce tasted terrible. Bread was a strange texture and gross. Potatoes were soggy and limp. No food items stood out as great. Overall I do not recommend this place at all for food. I think it would be a decent place to have a few drinks.

    This was our first and last visit at Fireproof. We ordered lamb meatballs and pork belly as an appetizer and were informed they were out of pork belly. We were disappointed but not anything we can control. Oddly, moments later the table down from us received the pork belly appetizer. And, another couple seated next to us ordered pork belly and were not advised it was not available. When ordering drinks, the seasonal menu had a “campfire” drink which my wife wanted to try. The waiter stated “oh-sorry-you can’t actually order that drink yet”. Our food was average-my salmon was way over cooked and my wife’s two scallops were “meh”. Not impressed at all.

    This was about our 5th or 6th visit. We have always found the food very good. But this was our first Sunday reservation and we brought 3 friends who had never dined there before. Server came up right away to inform us that they were out of fried rice (which is my fave dish there) and out of 3 other main items. It’s a limited menu so that is a pretty good percentage of an outage. We asked server to give us a few minutes to discuss if we even wanted to stay. My friends were fine to stay. Then they were out of the first 2 beers that my friend ordered. Ridiculous!!!!!! Great place to eat but don’t go on a Sunday!!

    Today is my birthday and I had a few friends recommend this place to me. I didn’t mind the menu was tapas style but some people do. We all enjoyed our time here tonight. From the aesthetic dark vibes to the nice staff. My husband and I enjoyed everything we ordered! My favorite was the Spanish grilled octopus and the elote! Must try if you’re a fan of elote! My husband got the Wagyu sliders and the fireproof potatoes. We plan to come back for Wagyu Wednesday! Sundays seem to be pretty chill / quiet. We went at 6pm and it wasn’t noisy / busy at all. Really enjoyed my birthday here! Recommend for a date night/ special occasion.

    Celebrated my birthday at happy hour and they had delicious and decently priced drinks! Service greeted us kindly and our waitress even brought me a birthday shot (which was so yummy)! Fun pop music played and the whole vibe is very casual. Food was a little pricey as expected, so we just basically snacked on the potatoes and wagyu Wednesday sliders. Cute place to pop in for happy hour.

    We met up some friends at the bar at fireproof before some halloween parties, and the food looked so delicious we had to try a few things. Wagyu dumplings, and brussel salad were really good, and they make a great spanish old fashioned. The bartender was very personable and we definitely enjoyed his company as well!
