    We went to Fireproof to celebrate two birthdays and we were certainly not disappointed. The food was amazing! We each had something different and we all felt the same. We also had dessert which was delicious. Definitely coming back.

    All five of us had steaks and they were very good. The waitstaff person was excellent because he was low key and attentive. We asked that the music volume be turned down and they did which was another nice example of attentiveness. I'm always shocked at the prices at good restaurants but that's because I'm 80 and stuck in the 1950s! We had asked for a quiet place to be seated and the corner booth was perfect. We'll definitely go back to The Fireproof when family and friends are in town.

    Food was cold even after they took it back to the kitchen to warm it up. Food was bland. We asked for salt and pepper and they didn’t have shakers. Overall not a good experience for brunch.
