We visited for my wife’s birthday. The service was excellent and it’s a nice place, but not as upscale as I expected. The food was very good and we will definitely return

Everything about our experience at this establishment was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for a fabulous meal at reasonable prices with excellent service. This was a birthday celebration for my wife and I could not have been happier with the entire experience. My deepest compliments to the chef & the entire staff at ignite.

We really enjoyed the all evening happy hour! Salads for both and shared small plates. Our server made a couple suggestions that were spot on. We will be back.

We went to Ignite on Sunday, because we have been there many times and enjoyed their appetizers and salads. When we arrived, we asked the hostess if the Luncheon menu was available, and she said that I would have to ask the server (odd that she didn't know that?). When we were seated at the table, we asked the same question to the server, and she offered to get a luncheon menu for us. She returned, and said that they would not be serving lunch - just brunch. Shouldn't all the staff know what menus are available? She then offered their special drink menu, but said that we would need to go to the bar to select the juice for the mimosa. All very strange!

We have been to Ignite several times. We have enjoyed happy hour on the patio. We have had dinner there a few times. But our favorite is the Sunday brunch. The food is awesome and the drink specials complete the dining experience. Kelsey was our waitress and the other bar tender assisted. They both are very pleasant and made our brunch very special. Overall the best value around.

Ignite is a very fun, trendy environment and the staff are very nice and prompt to serve. They have a terrific cocktail list and great value at happy hour. I ordered the filet with creamed potatoes and asparagus. Overall, the meal was good however they covered the steak in a sauce. I should have requested to leave it off because it took away from the filet. My husband ordered the pork chop meal. His chop was filled with gristle. He was very dissatisfied. I may give it a second shot but I am not running back.

From the time I came in the door and was greeted by Luis who was our server, I had a wonderful experience. Luis was so attentive and helpful! The food was delicious and the restaurant is beautiful! We also loved the birthday dessert! Thanks for making our day Luis and Ignite!

Excellent dinner at Ignite. We ate outside at the spur of the moment and the staff was accommodating. I had the filet and my wife had the ribeye and both dishes as usual were excellent. Got the Mac & Cheese substitute and it is awesome at this restaurant. will go back.

We have driven by dozens of times and finally decided to stop. Everything was great, and I mean everything! We will definitely go back. Worth the stop if you’ve always wondered what it was like when you drive by.

I would recommend Ignite Wood Fire Grill to a friend. Both of our meals were delicious. I had The Firebird and my friend had a pasta dish. She ate every last bite, which says a lot. I brought half my chicken home but ate all the mashed potatoes and broccoli. The broccoli was the best I've ever had in a restaurant. For personal reasons, neither of us had a cocktail so it seemed like a long time before we got our food. I thought, perhaps, our server would offer bread or something while we were waiting but she did not. I also mentioned it was my friend's birthday but there was no offer of a birthday dessert or anything. And, perhaps, they don't offer that. I know some restaurants no longer do. It is a beautiful restaurant. We opted to sit on the patio and it was a beautiful night. The patio is great and I luv how the bar wraps all the way around. The restaurant inside was quite chilly so I was really happy we opted for the patio. I will definitely go back again!

Michelle was more then accommodating as always. Great server, knowledgeable, professional and personable. The food was very slow coming out but I think the kitchen was a bit in the weeds. I don’t think it had anything to do with our server.
We will be back 👍

Great place for have a super evening. Consistently has been exceptional food and conducted in a a nice setting. The only thing that I have found is that the noise level in some areas of the restaurant is a little noisy to the point in having trouble hearing others.

This is the second time we have made a reservation. When we arrive, we have you a table, but the next reservation is in 90 mins for that table. Does that work? This has happened twice. The server rush us to order. Then after plates are cleared NEVER offered additional drinks, no dessert. Immediately brought the checks out. This has happened twice in one month. We will not be back for this reason. Patio is nice, food is good but MANY other options to go to where we are not rushed.

We had the grilled cheese with onions and a Caesar salad, a 2 for $12 promotion. It came out in less than five minutes! It was very tasty. My only complaint is that they charge $10 for a glass of house Chardonnay. That's ridiculous.

We liked being outside but under the cover of the bar. The view was bad at the outdoor seating with construction on one side and the highway on the other. The bar was quiet and we got great attention from the bartender/waitress. I wish I remembered her name. Lamb chops and Brussels sprouts were incredible. Wife loved the Eskie salad with salmon. Great way to spend our 30th anniversary. Thank you Ignite!! Our third time here and we will be back. We have told several others about the restaurant also.

We've visited Ignite at least 6 times since it opened. They seem to have addressed the noise level (a positive) and it's definitely an attractive place. Overall, however, the bill always surprises us, in that we don't get a lot of food for the relatively high prices. It's also one of the few nicer restaurants that doesn't provide bread service as part of the meal.

Ignite is an energetic destination. The food and cocktails were average and priced a bit high. The venue was very loud. The wait staff were very pleasant. The only reason for a low service rating was that the host initially set us at an isolated booth facing the cooking staff. We asked for a different table which they accommodated. The patio looked inviting. I would go back for a patio happy hour but probably not for a meal.

We were facing the kitchen and they seemed to be out of sorts. Lots of food sent back and lots of confusion. Made my husband very uncomfortable. Food was good but took a lot of time..

Food was pretty average for the cost. My wife got the Ribs from the small plate menu, they were not hot, not really even warm, more like room temperature, plus the sauce was not at all to my liking, nothing like a KC BBQ sauce. I got the enchiladas, they were also slightly above room temperature and rather tasteless. The apple cobbler was good, but once again, only slightly warm, not even hot enough to melt the ice cream. I tried it, but I'll probably not go back.

Ignite Fire Wood Grill has the BEST Happy Hour Menu — both appetizers and wine/beer offerings. Interestingly, it offers any wine on the Menu for the HH price! It was a nice Bar as well seating area in the dining area. And our server — Hanna is just great with an effervescent personality! We will come back again!

We were delighted to have a quick lunch at Ignite because our daughter recommended it. Our waitress Danielle was great. We enjoyed the half sandwich choices of the Reuben and the BBBLT - a blend of savory bacons with lettuce and heritage tomatoes.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday. The atmosphere had a lot of energy, and we loved the decor. It is open so it is loud, but we had no problem engaging in intimate conversation. We loved the Elote. My wife loved her lamb chop. My tenderloin was flavorful and tender. I ordered medium, but I’m glad it came out medium rare because I got to enjoy so much favor. The cut of beef was outstanding. The cocktails were strong which was fine for me, but my wife needed extra juice. Our waitress knew the menu, was very attentive and made the evening enjoyable. We will be back for small plates, they all sounded intriguing.

The Happy Hour is a great deal! $5 for any glass of wine and appetizers are on special but with regular portion size. I will definitely go back. The patio area is nice too - just a really enjoyable late lunch with a friend.
