This review is based solely on a happy hour drink experience, as we didn't eat here. Just happened to stumble across this place as it was in our hotel complex and we were looking for something to do at 10:00 pm on a Saturday night. Little did we know that was when happy hour started! $5 apps, and tho we... More

If you haven't had a chance to visit this restaurant -- WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. The service, decor, and food deserve more than what's available for excellent service. This is a restaurant that makes you hate the fact you have finished your meal. Fire & Ice is its trademark and there is a reason why. The mixture of coolness... More

This place has yet to disappoint. Make sure you know that they have a significant amount of seafood and the beef and chicken dishes are not in abundance! We had a Tuna tapa which was excellent called Fire and Ice and you pick the type that goes in the sushi/tapa. I do not like tuna but I may have to... More

Drinks were speedy but did not taste like a long Island Iced tea nor did the sex on the beach.The bartenders need to learn how to mix drinks.

Family of 4 ate hear while staying at the homewood suites. Happy hour specials are great, even with kids. They liked the black bean quesadilla and ribs. Wife had the crab cake rellano which was amazing. Bacon wrapped scallop was great but small, chicken tostadas was good but not what i was expecting from a tostada, and Crab Tian was... More

We've eaten at Talara 5-6 times over the years and we're always delighted by the Fire & Ice ceviche. I like it with grill octopus. In our group of four we got to try some other things this time. It was all good--the avocado and crabmeat tian, ahi tuna tartare, Jimmy Roll. Entrees were also delicious and very large portions--I... More

I ate dinner here one night while staying at the Homewood Suites. The restaurant is actually in the same building. Started with the hummus and chips. The hummus was outstanding, but the chips were extremely greasy, to the point that I could only eat a few. They make them onsite, but they would be better off just getting a bag... More

The food is amazing! My husband does not usually care where we eat, but this is the one place he requests we return to over and over again! I've been here several times due to the many travelzoo vouchers I've bought. The prices may be a little steep without the vouchers but the service and food may make it worth... More

Went here with some friends, and had a great time. We tried a little bit of everything amongst our group (ceviche, cooked fish, steak, etc.), and were not disappointed by the quality or execution of any of the food. Our only complaint was that for the prices they are charging, which are relatively high, you don't get very much food... More

This was a pleasant surprise, used a zootravel voucher and was not expecting fabulous, but food and service was excellent. Reservations needed because it’s a very small place, so use opentable to reserve, but well worth the wait if you decide to wait for a table. Great appetizers including excellent sushi (Fire and Ice Seviche was very tasty), very creative... More
