Fire + Ice Boston Ratings and Reviews

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.

Absolutely love Fire and Ice. Great healthy food. Fun place!!

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 food was great and all the workers were friendly and very helpful! No complaints about anything there. Had an amazing night and constantly come back for more memories!
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.
chefs were pretty amazing friendly and cute
the food and the choices were outstanding. can't beat the value
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.
The server was very good and explained the whole process and how things worked! The food was excellent and there was a great variety.
The concept was terrific but new to us. The variety of food choices was great and the way they cook it made it delicious. One can also add a salad and soup included in the price. Even my 94 year old mother could take an elevator to the 2nd floor.
We ate with a group of 18 people. The food was delicious and the experience was unique.

Seemed way more low-end / mass market than my first experience at the Cambridge location many years ago. Waiter didn't come by once to see if we wanted more drinks, etc. Guys grilling were the friendliest
Fun for bday
Overall this was fun for a bday outing. Was a bit overwhelmed by the wait at the grill - about 3 rows deep - though I did go at a peak time. At any other restaurant, you'd be waiting at the table for the food so the only difference is you are standing and waiting. Our waitress did find us in line so we could re-order drinks and that was cool. Given the wait, no one went up for seconds which was a bit of a bummer because they wanted to try different things. Drinks were yummy. I'll go back to Fire and Ice but will try to go at a less busy time.
Terrible experience. We were seated at 8:20 for a 7:30 reservation and that was only after complaining. No comp, no apology. Hostesses on another planet. Checked in they lost our reservation. We had 20 minutes to eat, get check and make a show. Unacceptable!
Waited hour even after reservation
Not enough cooks at grill. Extremely long line. Wasnt wirth wait fir all u can eat.
Nothing made me want to return.
The bad: Very disorganized, bartender was knowingly serving beer from mixed beer lines, host stand employees were not friendly, actually, most of the employees were harried, looked overwhelmed and did not smile. It seems that the restaurant knows people will visit, so it really doesn't matter what the service is like. The good: The food options are very good. It was fun to watch the guys preparing our food.
The cooks are excellent! They work extremely hard
The food is delicious and cooked in a short amount of time. There is a slight wait time but the cooks do the best they can. I can't imagine them working any harder.

Server was great! But other front desk servers were unpleasant
We come here often the chefs are funny and talented we never have a bad experience the waitstaff is awesome too always a good time
Great place for a unique dining experience
I didn't check "romantic" because the atmosphere is energetic and noisy, but it really could be a great place for a date (other than a first date). Totally fun unique atmosphere. You pick fresh ingredients, take it to one of the cooks in the middle who grills is all for you using your chosen ingredients, seasonings, and sauce. It's all you can eat and a great value. Other than beverages or appitizers (if you order any, though I don't know why you would), it's self service. Highly recommended.

Wonderful evening celebrating my daughters birthday. Everyone, from the downstairs bar attendant to the cooks to the servers made her feel special and celebrated on her 24th birthday! Thank you!
Oh Happy Day!
It was my birthday day and I chose Fire and Ice as my place to celebrate. Since I celebrated it at this place on my birthday last year . And I had such a great time why not again. The selection and variety of buffet food is a food lovers choice. The staff was courteous and attentive.The personal facilities were the cleanest I have seen in along time. I would give everything an A+.
Good value for lunch
I ate lunch here and it was good..there is array of food to choose from and you watch it get cooked in front of you.. I felt the lighting was a bit dim for lunchtime and interior looked like it could use some updating.. Overall, its someplace to experience if you haven't tried this fun food concept before
Fire and ice is one amazingly fun place! Entertaining, fun, and all you can eat with great healthy choices as well as some less healthy ones. Fun for all!
The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great. I had a extraordinary time with my friends and family
Coming on a Sunday there where two cooks. There was a few guys cleaning the grill and joking and tossing buns. But for people who want to eat experience fire and ice and have to catch the t. It's time consuming. It took a while to cook my food. I didn't get a burger or anything that was time consuming yet I still had to wait until the people in front of me where done first. They had burgers and ect. All I had was some shrimp and noodles something that should of taken 5 min took 20 min. Then we tipped out waitress 20% and I was the one standing in line and getting my food and all she did was bring us two drinks. Should of tipped myself.

Food was good, service from waitress was timely and cooks entertaining and engaging
Great variety of food and a lot of fun :)
Although the restaurant is quite loud, if a lot of people are there, it makes a lot of fun to go for dinner to the Fire+Ice. The service as well as the cooks were very friendly and the variety of food was huge. It is great to get your soft drinks refilled for free. One negative aspect was the always low temperature at all my visits.
Cooks seemed overwelmed
The cooks appeared to be overwhelmed by the patrons. Unfortunately, an extra cook showed up as we were leaving. Food was not being cooked like it could have. My burger was overcooked and my cheese was not melted. Kids liked it. I

We went as a party of 6 for my daughters 11th birthday and it was perfect! Definitely loud & energetic but a great experience. They even sent a complimentary ice creAm for her since they don't have cakes. I would suggest they get some considering how many big parties I see thrown there. Wonderful, fun place.
My daughter's Favorite place...
This is my daughter's favorite place to eat, and on this night it was extra special. This night will definitely hold a special place in our hearts...

fantastic value ... great staff ... can't wait to go back and we are eager to try the Sunday Brunch.
Long wait with reservation
We had a reservation for 7:30 and were not seated until after 8:30. It was a long, unexpected wait and seemed to be normal. Most other parties seemed to have been waiting an hour or longer after their reservation times as well.
Fun mix of food
Great place if your friends all have different food interests. It's a big stir-fry buffet.
Fire and ice is one of my must stop restaurants in Boston. As always, it was wonderful and my boyfriend loved it too!
Great Food but Smoldering Atmosphere
The food was outstanding, preparation, and presentation of the cooking method, in addition to the amazing cooks who put on a great show and are very enthusiastic. Unfortunately this was greatly overshadowed by the dining area's temperature, the restaurant was blisteringly hot, and we were seated on an outside wall, about as far from the Grill as possible both times I've been here, it was a nice cool 50 degree outside but inside it was uncomfortable to sit and enjoy your food, everyone in my party left half a plate of food because we couldn't bear the heat, I can only imagine how warm we would've been had we been drinking anything other than water. If the restaurant could just correct there ventilation issues, Id most certainly recommend going back, the wait staff and the food was definitely out of this world, but add in the wait time for a table with reservations, and the temp, It wouldn't be my first choice my next visit to Boston.
