“Return visit a big let down!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

We went back to Fire for my husbands birthday celebration. We were there one before and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were four of us. I ordered potatoe and pea soup for starter, which was different and tasted delicious. But what a let down for the steak I ordered. I don't know whether it was lack of money or cutbacks , a new chef or owner. The steak was burned to a crisp. Totally black on the outside and dried to bits on the inside. They served it with chunky chips,which were so bland to the taste it was
unbelievable. The service was good and the waiters were pretty responsive. But all and all I would not go back there's again. Nor would I recommend the restaurant to anyone.

“Great no nonsense venue for group dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Fire is great for large groups. The atmosphere is buzzing, food is very good (especially the Hereford steaks) and it has something for everyone except the fussiest eater. Service is friendly and prompt. Great locwtion in centre of town. Would be good for small groups or couples too if not looking for romance - it's a noisy, bright place.

“fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

In short, fantastic food, friendly service and overall just a fantastic night. The seafood at Fire is to die for. Wine can be pricey but the quality outweighs the price. This is a must do in Dublin
