The food was fresh and delicious. Had 3 courses and drinks and everything was perfect. It was a comfortable and lively place. Farm to table at its best. Right off the highway with valet parking which was a plus.

Clearly a cut above most other Connecticut restaurants, Firebox serves absolutely wonderful, fresh, creatively prepared and locally sourced food. This is a destination restaurant worth a trip from anywhere. Everything we had (except for the rolls which were a little bland and the espresso which was both flat and salty) was superb: amazing PEI mussels in a chorizo cream sauce, flavorful roasted carrot and apple soup, wonderful grilled salmon with roasted potatoes and beets, incredibly tender and delicious pork tenderloin with wild mushroom risotto, and great desserts including a salted chocolate pudding and a warm sticky toffee pudding. Wine pairings were very well chosen. The ambiance is lively and bustling with a packed house full of people enjoying the terrific food. Service was friendly and parking is easy right next door.

What's the dinner with friends Taste of Hartford it was good and crowded. Service was good the food was good parking is difficult even though they had valet and also I don't know why the open don't open the bar hour before they have dinner. Most places open the bar like an hour earlier or 5 you have to wait till 5:30 and you're missing a great opportunity to get more business.

We visited this restaurant prior to attending a show at the Bushnell. Parking was extremely convenient in a lot next door. We had made a reservation through open table and were seated as soon as we walked in. The restaurant was full, but our table was waiting for us. It was an intimate and beautiful setting. Our waitress was prompt, knowledgeable and curtious. We both ordered the salmon entree and it was scrumptious and delicious. I highly recommend this inventive and modern concept of a restaurant.

Firebox is a fantastic restaurant with a great ambience and delicious food. We tried the soup of the day, which was one of the best soups I have ever had. The chocolate mousse dessert was also great. It's a wonderful place to go to for lunch in Hartford.
