We truly enjoyed our dinner at the Firebox. The octopus in harissa was nicely balanced with the cucumber yogurt slaw for our appetizer. Our scallops were perfectly cooked and surprisingly, paired nicely with the lentil vegetable medley. The real star of the show was the...More

The best French toast I’ve had in a really long time. We went for Sunday brunch - cocktails were yummy and the service was fantastic. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back!

I've been to Firebox twice in the past month, and give it a solid 4 stars. The menu is very interesting but limited. Price is somewhat expensive. Some menu items are standard fare (i.e., chicken) but with "gourmet" sides and "toppings." Sometimes a little too...More

We had a lovely meal here. It was a weeknight, not terribly busy, but I have a feeling that the staff is just as attentive on a busy night. The menu is varied and the dishes beautifully prepared. We look forward to a return trip.

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.
