Fantastic ambiance and service. Drinks and appetizers were reasonably priced and we were never rushed. Steaks were stringy and tough. Would not order them again. Crab cakes were unbelievably good

The restaurant is very nice and the service is great but the food is over priced, mostly the steaks. Way over priced. Not the best flavor and a little over cooked. Many other places where you can pay the same the same price for great steak!

First and last time for a meal here. Food was lacking in taste. For a place with it's bragging about executive chefs, this was a big disappointment. I had steak and it was just "okay". My wife had the pork chop and stated it had "no taste". Only part of the meal that was good were the mashed potatoes. We actually stopped and got something to eat on the way home.

The place is very nice. The service was good. The drinks were over priced. And the food was not worth the high prices. Our Caesar salads had big thick iceberg rib chunks. We shared an appetizer- wood grilled shrimp. It was so salty it was barely edible. Then we shared a ribeye sandwich. It was also ridiculously salty. And it was so fatty and thick it was impossible to eat as a sandwich. For that little bit of poor quality food, a bar drink, a bottle of beer and a glass of wine, the bill was $85 plus tip. Cost over $100 and wasn't even 2 full meals There were other items on the menu that may have been better. We may try again after we work all the salt out of our systems

Service was great. My Ribeye sandwich was not edible unless you prefer 60 percent fat and 40 percent meat. I don’t. They never should have allowed that sandwich to be put on a plate. For a $26 sandwich, this one is a deal breaker for me.

Made reservations for 6:30 and when we showed up they didn’t have a reservation for us. They ended up sitting us by the bar. It took them 10 minutes to come to our table to give us water and then another 30 minutes to even order our food. Waiter was hit and miss when he came to the table and I had to go to the bar to get plates for our appetizers. They did comp one appetizer and a round of drinks but it took for ever for them to bring the bill. Once I sat my credit card on the table he was right over to grab it and then was gone for a while to run it when the register was one booth from us. Over all the food was good but the service was horrible. We’ve eaten there before and it was good but this time was not. Hopefully next time it will be better or we will just go elsewhere.

Waiter wasn’t overly friendly.

Waters were not always filled up.
Questioned the name we gave our daughter after he asked.
Ribeye was just okay for the amount you pay. Lamb gnocchi was a very small portion. Had we known that, probably would have ordered a side or something different. I wont spend that much money on dinner there again, plenty of other places with great food and great waiters.

I had to pick the last option for noise, because it was too loud. BEYOND energetic. It was too dark to see the menu properly. The food was adequate. And lastly, our server was one of the main reasons we won't be back. She treated our table as if she had somewhere else she wanted to be. As I have worked in the food industry, I know what good customer care is, though the server should always strive to be GREAT, but this was mediocre at best.

We had never been to the Ignite Wood Fire Grille. There were not a ton of people there, as it was a very cold night. Overall it was a good experience. Service was great, beer was cold, and my beautiful wife was with me. Food was very good. I had to send my pork chop back for a little extra sizzle on the grill, but it was no big deal. Recommend it.

Good selection for restaurant week. Nice heavy flatware. Tables are thick wood (not veneer). These little things give you a feel for management's overall attention to detail, and the food shows it.

Dined during restaurant week. Pazole soup was delicious. I had the Salmon and it was very good. My husband ordered the hanger steak. He was reluctant to order because it is hard to get tender and flavorful hanger steak. This was both. DELICIOUS!

The vegetables were very good. The chicken was dry and needed seasoning. The area seemed to be quite loud. Our waitress was personable and attentive. The sandwiches were ok, the fries were forgetable. The salad was ok but, the salmon in the salad was overcooked.
Was very dispointed in the chicken since it is the signiture dish.
