We stopped in early on a Friday evening without a reservation and received great service. The restaurant filled up shortly after we arrived. We were in time for the happy hour from 3-6 and there were some very good prices. The portion sizes were larger than anticipated. The specialties from the "wood fire" ovens were very flavorful the other menu... More

Went here for dinner one night absolutely loved the low lighting and smell of the wood burning as you walk through the door. The menu was greatly designed the new fiesta salad was amazing, I would definitely recommended. Service was great from the hostess to our waiter very smiley and polite. I definitely will be going back here again soon.

My partner and I stopped here on the way out of the Twin Cities for dinner. It was a great experience with just a couple small caveats. Their wood-fired pizza is terrific. The flavors are great, the chicken is tender and succulent, and it's a large portion size. It may seem like an odd downside, but they perhaps put too... More

The new menu is not as appealing as the old one, and the prices have increased considerably. I preferred the previous offerings.

Coupling my review with Mike H.'s review earlier, we were a part of this team dinner and the fact that they turned around a room for us that held over 40 people in a short amount of time speaks volumes for this restaurant! They were very accommodating, patient, and friendly, with a great menu!!! Their food choices had something for... More

The first time I went to Bonfire I was with extended family. It was busy, the food was great, and the service was stellar. I've been there two times since with my hubby and kiddos only when it was not busy. The service was TERRIBLE...like near walk out the door before the order even comes terrible. Some of the food...

Met a friend for dinner at Bonfire. We were looking for a good patio for a beautiful fall evening and heard their's had a fireplace. The patio was comfortable and the fireplace was nice but the lighting was so bad every table had cell phones out to read the menu. It also seemed like the patio was not a priority... More

My wife, youngest son and I went to Bonfire on a Saturday afternoon and determined the 3-6 hour is the better time to go due to their happy hour. All Apps are 50% off making them much more affordable. Always enjoy the Bull Bites ... But they need to ensure the tomatoes are ripe! Drinks are $2 off but the... More
