Has the fire gone out at firebox? I recently dined there on a Saturday night. The food was good and I had lovely company. It is a very cool space and I remembered liking it years ago when I was last there. This past time,...More

A friend and I get together monthly for lunch. We try different venues each month and visited Firebox around the holidays.

The atmosphere in the bar ( old brick , high ceilings) is wonderful. The food is locally sourced when available and the restaurant supports a very distressed area in Hartford. A bit pricey, but the food is fantastic and the mission of the owners equally...More

First time at Firebox. Love the menu choices with all the local ingredients. Sweet Potato soup was great. As was the haddock. Very flexible as I didn't like the vegetable it came with. Desserts are great. Attentive service.

This restaurant is wonderful. It has delicious meals from locally grown foods, and great service. I came here for a graduation party and everyone had something to eat. It's on the expensive side, so plan accordingly. Free restaurant parking available.

If we have an 11:00 am reservation for 2 people, are we in good shape to make it to a 1 pm Bushnell matinee?

Yes. Shouldn't be a problem. In cases like that I usually mention to the server that we have tickets to a show and they will ensure you make it on time.
