Great food and drinks. Very loud (could use some sound dampening inside), but very energetic vibe.

The restaurant is very nice, we go about two times a month. I have never been there when a transient isn’t prowling the parking lot. We have also witnessed a domestic violence where the police needed called. The food is excellent and the wait staff is very nice. We have never had a bad meal which keeps drawing us back. Just be aware of your surroundings when entering the building and when going back to your car.

This was our first visit to Fuego since they moved late last year. What a fabulous experience! They were busy and could seat a lot more people at this new location. The food was great as always, we really enjoyed ourselves!! Thank you

Food was wonderful. Our server was a bit overwhelmed as the restaurant was very full. They got a couple orders wrong (eg salsa on the side) and one order was made as a to go for a spouse at home, and they instead brought it out plated with the rest of the meals. They were apologetic, and fixed both, though the to go was brought out immediately, so sat in a bag for the rest of our meal, not as fresh as we were hoping. Noise inside was quite loud, and we later moved outside to listen to the band (Henry James) which was wonderful, and we had drinks out there. Lovely experience overall. Will be back.

My husband and I went to Fuego Bistro to celebrate our birthdays! Had a very tasty appetizer and entree that the chef made vegan for my husband and I. They didn't have a vegan desert but the server brought us out a dish of candied walnuts to satisfy our sweet tooth.

We've loved Fuego since there were multiple locations. The cornbread is to die for. So are the green beans. And the mashed potatoes. And the pernil. And the Fuego Pasta. And the tacos. And..... you get the picture. There is a reason customers AND staff are loyal.

This is a great place. The food is always excellent and it was very quick to come out. The 2 complaints I would have: the lounge/bar area smelled like cigarettes very badly. I wouldn’t think smoking was allowed inside and had to walk through this area to get to the bathroom. The bathroom setup was different but could deal with that. The problem was that my friend and I were trying to leave the bathroom when someone who was clearly high on an unsure substance prevented us from doing so. He finally did let up and we were able to leave the bathroom but we spent much more time in there than we wanted to and didn’t appreciate being approached by this person.

We live in the neighborhood and were glad to see another established restaurant brand move into the prior Gallo Blanco site. Good food; great service; awful noise level. The food and service (plus reasonable pricing) might take us back. The noise level/music volume might keep us away.

The food at Fuego at the Clarendon was good and the portions are very large. My husband and I could have easily split an entree. We were a little disappointed since this is the same owner as Fuego Bistro which closed. Fuego Bistro had a much nicer outdoor seating area and more choices on their menu. I was sad that the only way they were able to cook the Mahi Mahi was blackened which I don’t really care for. We went for restaurant week and the value was good.

It was our first time to the new location and we loved it. The patio was shaded with misters so we were very comfortable on a 97 degree afternoon. The happy hour drinks and food were delicious and the servers were friendly and efficient.

Superior food and service was excellent, cocktails were great and presentation awesome !
Great happy hour ! Great plant based options!!
I went to the origional Fuego on seventh Street for years, first time in the Clarendon. Even a few more notches up !!
The kool vibe music inside and out felt like NOLA or Chicago... not Phoenix.
I’m a foodie and a restaurant cook myself all I could think it was going back since I left that’s a pretty damn good thing. It doesn’t mean that they can be 100% all the time but it was a great experience!

The live music was way too loud making it difficult to carry on a conversation. Service was slow and some of the food was mediocre. Our guests ate very little of their meal. This experience was definitely subpar to previous ones there.

The signing on the patio and live jazz band was really odd. It did not match the ambience and really made the place awkward and not very enjoyable. Our server was rarely seen unfortunately and we had to sit and wait each time there was a drink or food order. We also waited so long for the check that my guest left and I waited 15 more minutes for the check to come back.

I have been waiting to review this place! Absolutely fantastic! The food was a major experience! I was full for 2 days! The seafood empanada was to die for and the star of the show is the signature green Chile cornbread (its actually a side dish). The cornbread was outstanding! I could have had JUST that and be super happy! Also took a couple of bites of the Peasant Paella and the

Fish portions were much smaller than usual.
Asked for dressing on side but didn't accompany salad; had to ask for it.
Asked for extra dressing a few min later and they brought out the wrong dressing!
Overall good, just not as good as typically is.

We were taken to our requested booth right away despite being 15 minutes early. There was a trio of jazz musicians playing. They were fabulous. The menu was extensive including several appetizers, salads. Sandwiches and entrees. We had the fuego appetizer plate which included two empanadas, a salmon croquette, a Cuban slider, and some veggies. Delicious! We split an entree— the roast pulled pork. It was very tender and fabulously delicious. We will definitely be back!
