Firebox is a fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic. And every dish we've ever gotten there has been delicious and amazing. It's a bit on the higher-end price-wise, but the food is worth it. We go for special celebrations. I highly doubt you'll be disappointed.

Great bar and better food. The chef makes even chicken taste wonderfully different and inspired. The Brussels sprouts are delicious.

The food was excellent. The ingredients come from local sources; increasing the restaurant's appeal. My only criticism is that it is very loud due to the high ceilings.

As always we had a great dinner at the Firebox with friends. One of my favorite restaurants in Hartford. Great selection of Farm to Table food and great drinks as well. A must visit!

My husband, son and I just dined at Firebox. We had a wonderful dining experience. We especially loved the Brussels sprouts for a starter and the octopus. Gave in and shared the chocolate Guinness cake for dessert. Worth every calorie!!

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.
