We have been coming to Tinderbox ever since it first opened. Our family loves the food (and how it has evolved over the years). The service has always been excellent. Don't be intimidated and try the newly opened Restaurant Aziza by Chef Marleen Ong. We were pleasantly surprised by how awesome the food was. It was fine dining quality and... More

I had heard about this place from friends and finally got to try it after the renovation. I was very impressed by the wine selection and great cheese platter that accompanied the wine we chose. There was a great food selection and the service was great. We ordered appetizers that were just great and the server had great knowledge of... More

Very good food but a little on the pricey side. The portions are on the small side with a big size price but the quality is very high. They also have a Deli style meat counter where you can order fresh cut cheeses and meats. Still I feel that it is worth the price.

The good thing about Tinderbox is that its a little bit of mostly everything. You could eat, you could buy and you could drink. It has a little grocery that you could buy some vegetables (although sometimes there not so fresh) and well the bread is really good. The meat, cheese and the ham that they sell are really good...

The meat and cheese selection is very good and there are also some hard to find imported items on the shelves. Eating in the restaurant is not bad but not great either. If they could take that aspect more seriously, Tinderbox would be quite a special place.

Apparently, if you sit inside and smoke without ordering first, a waiter will come over and ask you to leave. He will tell you should order IMMEDIATELY otherwise go out. If this is a company sanctioned practice, I say the management should re-think it. If it is not, then it should train its people better.

My mom and i visited tinderbox forthe first time, food is good but expensive, attentive staff, good service, nice selection, good location, the "in place" to be, i think were paying more for the ambiance than the food, if you want to "be seen" then this place is the place to be... Ps: wine cellar at the side, lots of... More

We have eaten at Tinderbox many times. The decor is great. The location is great.The service is great. But the food is below average. I have yet to have a really good meal at Tinderbox. This time was the lamb burger, ordered medium rare. The meat in the middle had not even had time to warm up, much less cook.... More
