Tried the Grill Fire for dinner with my husband and a friend, with the idea of scoping it out for a business function. The "cool vibe" starts with the ultra modern, brand new hotel lobby entrance to the restaurant. Packed bar to the left, booths and tables to the right. Our waitress was young and sweet but requests for recommendations for both cocktails and food were answered with "I never tried that." A top notch establishment makes sure their servers are well versed and confident in the quality of their menu. The restaurant seems to have difficulty deciding if it is mainly a pub, or an upscale dining venue; the menu was a single page and limited. Luckily we were there for Ladies Night were a 3 course meal was a value at $24.95 and came with 1 glass of wine or sangria. We had cocktails and enjoyed the warm, cheese filled bread. Two of us chose the French onion soup which was not too salty but lacked any real flavor. The arugula, watermelon & feta salad was pretty, light, refreshing and a hit. My husband's chicken parm (from the limited prix fixe menu) was plump, crisp, moist and served overly properly cooked pasta. The swordfish was the hit of the meal. A generous portion, perfectly cooked to order and the best I've had in a long while. I didn't care for the accompanying vegetable medly as it was way too peppery for my taste. Dessert was either a raspberry sorbet with berries and whipped cream or decadent cookie with ice cream. Both were delightful. When we were given the check we were also handed a large cone of cotton candy. Not sure why, but it was different. It's definitely not a restaurant I would avoid, but I'm not sure I'd make a special trip back there either.
