FYR represents the metaphorical hearth of downtown Columbus with the centerpiece of the kitchen being a wood-fired grill led by renowned Argentine chef, Sebastian La Rocca. Located within Hilton Columbus Downtown, the use of fire & smoke is incorporated into every dish to bring the historical ritual of cooking over an open flame tableside. FYR is a stronghold of culinary passion - a gathering place that honors the emotional, mental and spiritual nature of flame and food.

    Fabulous service by everyone from hostess to server & beyond; great food & drinks, fun atmosphere. Restaurant was busy but we could easily have a conversation at our table which was right by the open kitchen.

    Wonderful ambience, great service, fabulous food! Best Bartender, Michael, and impeccable Waiter, Miguel! Perfect pairings and entrée recommendations for all. Filleting our Catch of the Day at the table was expertly done and was perfect. Suggest ordering an array of sides and starters to share for the whole fire cooking experience. The entire evening was delightful. FYR is a great addition to fine dining downtown and Short North! And Spark bar is a beautiful open space to meet before dinner. Highly recommend Spark and FYR for a wonderful evening out on the town!

    FYR is a great addition to the downtown Columbus dining scene. It is a must visit for foodies everywhere. The dishes offered are creative, absolutely delish and perfectly executed. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and attentive (but not overly so). Just great overall. Recommend clicking a reservation as soon as possible! Very well done FYR!

    The service was fantastic however the food was not great. The duck was cold and flavorless and the vegetables with the salmon were way overcooked. I expected much better food with all the hype of the restaurant. I will not be back for dinner but may return for a cocktail.

    FYR is a quality experience in a beautiful new hotel strategically located downtown and connected to the Convention Center. The cuisine is diverse and well executed. Portions are small, the vegetable medley had an unappealing garnish and the broccolini was not up to expectations. My skirt steak was flavorful but could have been warmer. My dining companions were satisfied with their salmon selection and flat breads. Parking is difficult . We navigated detours and had to ask the front desk how to find the Restuarant . Our waitress was not as informed about the menu as she needed to be. FYR is a good choice if you are staying in the Columbus Hilton or attending a convention. The unique atmosphere is appropriate for a special occasion but I would seek out other establishments in the Short North with better dining value.

    I wish I could remember my servers name but my husband and I were at table 3 on the night of the 19th of Nov and she was amazing. It was our first visit and she gave the best recommendations. My husband and I were both very impressed with the service and management. We felt welcomed and the food & drinks were absolutely amazing. We can’t wait to go back!

    FYR Short NorthResponded 5 days agoThanks LeahB! Your server was Nicki. I'm delighted to hear this as Nicki is our newest server on the floor after completing her initial training. I'll pass this on as I know she'll be happy to hear it! Thanks for the love, we appreciate you! - Craig Steel, FYR GM

    We stopped in for a bite and drink and were greeted by the hostess as we came down the stairs and she was very friendly and nice. Our server was great and checked on us to make sure we were taken care of. The chairs were comfortable and the atmosphere was relaxing. We ordered the cauliflower and mushroom pizza to share. The cauliflower was cooked perfect and tasted great. Only drawback was it could have came with a little more dressing. The mushroom pizza was ok, a little dry.

    Our server, Kenneth, was phenomenal, and the atmosphere and overall service was perfect. My ONLY complaint is that the $65 filet mignon I ordered had the texture and flavor of a $7 cut of beet found in a basic Pot Roast; It was NOT worth the money. I don't mean to offend the chef with that statement, but that cut of meat was absolutely not worth $65. Other than that, I could likely see myself coming back.

    First things first, Shannon is the icon and the moment. Request her as your server. Because she’ll slay and serve the whole evening. 15/10 service. We had the gnocchi, the shrimp, the mushroom pizza, tuna tostada, pineapple upside down cake and the the don Pedro dessert with bourbon.. All of the entree/snack items were awesome! I really enjoyed them and so did my partner. Sadly, the pineapple upside down cake and the Don Pedro dessert were overpowered by the bourbon for us. We really enjoy bourbon and drink a lot of it, but for the desserts it just wasn’t a good pairing. Overall we loved our experience at FYR and would absolutely return. Chef Sebastian came to the table and was an absolute gem. It was glorious talking to the man cultivating such a wonderful experience. But again, Ask for Shannon! She’s the bee’s knees. Cheers 🍻!

    FYR Short NorthResponded on November 14, 2022Thank you not only for enjoying your time with us but for your amazing feedback on Shannon! She is the absolute best and we are so thankful to have her with us. Also, noted on the bourbon! Thanks for the feedback. Hope to see you again soon! - Craig Steel, FYR GM

    New restaurant in the New Hilton near Columbus convention center. South American influencd menu. We had a appitizer and four different meals and some sides. We shared and all were very good. Desert was also very good. Beautiful space and service that was very attentive and made great suggestions especially on the drinks and wine. Definitely a repeat.

    Being a short north resident, I’ve come to expect a variety of good food in the neighborhood and FYR has certainly delivered that elegantly. South American brought right to High Street. Starting with the cocktails: the Big Wow, crafted with perfection and attention to detail we had the Caipirina and Chef de Tornada (both a twist on a margarita, but better). The empanadas were delightful and the chorizo was full of amazing Argentinian flavors. The roasted tomato was an even greater twist on starters and a must if you only pick one of the tapas. We felt like steak for our entree and ordered the 10oz filet. Paired with the Fableist Tempranillo made this one of the best steaks in town. Grandmothers Carmel Flan was our desert choice, which we loved. One of the best parts of the experience was atmosphere. This is a great people watching spot and and makes me proud of Columbus. You must check this spot out. Two thumbs up FYR.
