Went on a Friday Night so it was very crowded the food was delicious as always but it was a little bit of a wait for them to cook it since there was so many people. Either way I love this place. Great for a group outing or Date night. Perfect location in the middle of Back Bay Boston.

I have enjoyed Fire + Ice for years. The cooks really get into it and they do a great job. The selection is enormous and it's really fun designing your own dish! The only thing that annoys me is that there is no specific set up for retrieving your ingredients, so it's people clamoring and it can be unruly. I wish that were formatted with lines, or by calling tables by number to control how many people are selecting food at one time.

This was such a meh experience, it kind of annoyed me. Way overpriced for what it really is. Waited way too long for the food to be cooked, and the sauces all tasted like they came out of a bottle from a shitty grocery store.
Other people may have a blast here with the gimmicky setup, but the whole experience was just lame. I definitely wouldn't go back, but I'd recommend people with kids to check it out once just to say they did.

This restaurant could be fun for groups. The waiter did not fully explain how the entire table should make their bowls and go to the grill together. Since there are only 2 chefs the wait was very long and our group ended up eating separately since our food was ready at separate times.
My teens did like the restaurant. I was not a fan since the hostess was extremely rude to our group when seating us.

Main course was great, asked for ice team after our meal assuming that it was included as it is an all you can eat place. We paid $12 for ice cream in the end as our server never indicated that it was extra. Otherwise food was fantastic.

We dined here on the recommendation of a friend. The concept was new to us and the whole family enjoyed selecting their custom meal. There are plenty of components and sauces to suit every taste. Even the burgers were great. Make sure you're hungry when you go - you'll want to try it all.

The atmosphere was loud and energetic, good for groups and inexpensive, all-you-can-eat food. Due to the way the food is prepared, it is always over cooked. This is not the type of restaurant a foodie is looking for.

Greeted by hostess. Seated at a booth for 6. That made difficult for u to get up trip to the buffet. The server introduced himself as the best server there. That being the case , I would not want to have any of the others as he was not that good.
If you didn't like your meal at Fire and ...
If you didn't like your meal at Fire and Ice, you only had yourself to blame! This novel restaurant has an abundant selection of meats, fish, vegetables, starches, and sauces for patrons to select for cooking by hard-working cooks. The food was fresh and cooked properly. The salad bar also was excellent. The service was attentive and friendly. The noise level with all the cooking going on right in the middle was very high. There were lots of birthday celebrations while we were there.

Average food and service. The restaurant was really a little grubby and seems to cater to the 20 somethings who are trying to get as much food in their mouths as possible. It is a neat idea, but the execution could be a bit better.

I don't understand the purpose of this establishment. You walk over to the other side of the restaurant to select your own ingredients from a buffet, which is not exactly hygienic, and place them in a bowl. You then take your ingredients to the large hibachi-style grill and wait while a cook will throw it on the hot surface, right next to someone else's selection to let it "cook". Then they will scoop it up and throw it on a plate for you to then walk back to your table to eat. It's $19.99 for the "pleasure" of that. I might as well as stay at home. The drinks were just OK: watered down, took forever to arrive, with no sign of our server to find out what was going on. If you have any kind of dietary restriction - religious, health or otherwise - definitely DO NOT eat here. I couldn't believe the "buffet" and the "grill" had fish next to meats next to vegetables, and all being scooped up, mixed up and served off the same spatula and grill spot by the cook. We were asked by the server if anyone had a food allergy, but the cook did not. With so many other dining options in this immediate area, I cannot recommend this place at all.

I have been to Fire+Ice in Harvard Square before and had a great time, but we decided to try the Boston location this time, a very different experience. The food was really great, the variety was incredible and the desserts were amazing. The best thing were the chefs, they were all fun and engaging and really made the experience.

The food combinations are overwhelming at first but once you get into the swing of it the possibilities are endless. My kids loved it! We would go back, however, we were not impressed with our waiter. We could never find him and we had to get up to go look for him, when we did find him it took forever for him to come back with what we needed. Refills, needed a fork because we were short one, napkins , clear the plates,ect. We did have a large party so the restaurant automatically added in the tip. This guy got a huge tip for doing practically nothing. It's like he knew he was going to get a good tip regardless of if he was attentive or not.

I had to ask the hostess for the server, utensils, drinks, and my check at the front. Server was awful and brought our melted watered down drinks which were supposed to be frozen. Staff was rude and annoying, especially Larry. Worst place to go to in Boston don't even waste your time.
Great for large parties
I was nervous at first because the hostess gave the first member of our party of 16 some attitude about not all being there at 6:31 for a 6:30 reservation and that we "had to be done by 8:30" so not a great start but our waitress (Shayna maybe?) was awesome. The food was good. The drinks were good. It's a great place to go with a big group so you can mingle and focus on each other instead of a typical meal timing. With drinks and dessert we ran past 8:30 but never received any additional attitude about it luckily.
The last two times I've been here for a special occasion, the drinks have been flat and watered down, people cutting in front and pushing us out of the way of the grill. Used to be a great relaxed atmosphere and we loved driving the two hours for the special occasions for either lunch or dinner.
I visited the restaurant for a dinner with my mom. At first I was not a fan, because water is poured in plastic cups and you need to go get your own food. However, the food was then prepared well and the service was nice. Mostly recommend this restaurant to families with kids, because the chefs are very friendly and they grill your food in front of you.
My wife and I went to Boston to celebrate our 24th Anniversary and while searching for a nice spot to dine found Fire + Ice. What a find! The scene was awesome and he food was fantastic. Definitely hit the mark. Thanks for a memorable evening. Note: We liked it so much we went back the next night.
