“Outstanding Food, Noisy, But Fun Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

If you're looking for a quiet dinner, go elsewhere; but if you're looking for a great meal, and a fun atmosphere, this is the place. We were there 2 nights ago for a family celebration, and Firestone truly impressed. There was 10 of us, and from appetizers to mains to desserts, everyone was very pleased with their choices. As it was my parents 65th Wedding Anniversary, budget was certainly not the first factor taken into consideration. Even so, the food portion of our bill, even with tax, was about $450, and for 10 people and the meals we had, was very fair.
The Starters/Appetizers menu is fairly diverse, with people at our table ordering everything from sushi to wild mushroom soup, and all were very good. Main courses were exceptional. I had the braised short rib, and it was fork tender, in a rich sauce that was ample evidence of a long, slow braise. Several people had steaks, all were very good, and they are served with crispy potato rolls, mashed potatoes mixed with "loaded potato fixings" rolled in a crisp spring roll wrapper. Two members of our party had the prime rib, and it was huge and very good. The Salmon "Osso Buco" was a nice entrée. Salmon filet, filled with crabmeat, wrapped around a scallop, over a bed of shrimp.
The Dessert Menu is not extensive, but anything we tried was good. A "hit" was "Them Donuts" a large portion of a nice cakey donut holes, powdered with icing sugar, with 3 dipping sauces; raspberry coulis, Bavarian crème rum sauce, and chocolate sauce.
If you want to splurge a little, this is a really good place to feel like you've gotten your money's worth out of it.

“Excellet Paella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

This has become one of my favourite restaurants in Lethbridge. For some reason it took a long time for the kitchen to settle down after it opened, but the food has been consistently good for about a year now, and the special seasonal menu has been very good. The portions are excellent, so although the food is bit pricey, you get what you pay for. The menu has some features that are unusual in Southern Alberta, such as the excellent paella. The dining room is usually full, so I would recommend reservertions.

“Recommend heartily!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Yesterday my husband and I went for dinner with his sister and his mom. Had never been to this restaurant but someone had told us it was great. We all shared the lobster dip and ordered a variety of entres--salad, meat loaf, chicken, salmon--and enjoyed it all. Then we shared the apple crisp. Even my mother-in-law liked her meal and took what she couldn't eat home with her. All in all it was a pleasurable experience and the prices were very reasonable. The only thing that someone commented on was that it was a little noisy but it did not bother me.

“Great food; great ambiance”

Cuddle by the fire or enjoy the outdoor water feature at the Firestone patio this summer. Reubin sandwich and raspberry lemonade are delicious!

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Food and service is excellent. They have a great outside patio with lots of fire. I like the atmosphere and would rate it as the best outside patio in town.
