    We tried the mussels starter- it was SO delicious. Very creamy and flavorful. Highly recommend! I got the seafood boil as my entree, and it was great. Plenty of food, and a completely different flavor than the mussels from the starte My husband got the souper grilled cheese and he said it was 10/10. He didn’t like the mushroom bisque as much, but we were sufficiently full by the time he got to it. I also got a nice cocktail, Flora French. It was light and tasty. The service was excellent and attentive, very friendly. A great experience. We will definitely come back!

    Incredible experience. Both entrees (lamb osso bucco and a steak dish) were cooked very well. Lamb was especially tender! Will definitely return again.

    We have had drinks, apps and oysters here several times. I figured dinner would make a nice anniversary date for my wife and I. 7:00 on a Saturday. We started out with half a dozen of each of the 3 varieties of oysters as well as an additional 4 signature oysters. Nothing short of amazing. The crab dip was exactly what my wife was looking for. Next was the Chef's Board charcuterie. No complaints about the quality of anything presented but the most exciting flavor happening was the side of truffle honey. Also the Chef's choice to omit the foie gras mousse was a bit disappointing. My wife ordered the wagyu serloin. It was supposed to come with fingerling potatoes buy came with what looked like yucca instead. Whatever it was, it was cooked and seasoned appropriately. The beef was phenomenal and the port wine demi really elevated the whole thing. I ordered the braised short rib. The star of the plate was the Creamy polenta. The pork and jus were under seasoned and i really got no salt (except the polenta) or acid from the dish. I posted a picture and I can only assume the garnish on top of the polenta was my crispy baby kale. I got no crispness nor kale flavor. We would have asked our server about the potato substitute and the kale but she had disappeared. A second server delivered another Shirley Temple for my wife and the second server also soon delivered our entrees. Nobody checked on us for more than a half hour after the entrees had been delivered. We had time to eat, discuss getting desserts, pick out our desserts, continue waiting and then decide against waiting longer for desserts. We finally saw our original server almost 45 minutes since my wife ordered her drink and more than 30 minutes after entrees were delivered. The tables had also significantly cleared out just before our food was delivered. All of the service issues aside, the atmosphere is great. The quality of the ingredients was fine as well. Just a bit overpriced for what we got. The oysters were on the pricey side as well, but worth every dollar. We paid over $100 per person without drinks. Neither of us feel the level of service received reflects that price point. I was also expecting a little more of a flavor pop. We paid a premium price for a mediocre experience. We will be back for daytime oysters and drinks when family comes to visit.

    Had a very nice date night with my wife and we couldn't have picked a better restaurant to try for our first time. Food was delicious, service was amazing, and we got a nice seat upstairs right along the window. We will definitely be going back!!

    I love Firestone's Culinary Tavern. I've been coming here for several years now, and I am always happy with the food, the service, and the vibes/digs. My go-to here is the Chef's Board. It is one of the best cheese & charcuterie boards I've ever had. It's my favorite in town, for sure. I get it pretty much every time I come here, and I often come here specifically for the chef board. The rest of their menu is spectacular, their wine selection is fantastic, and their staff are so friendly. The space is gorgeous, too - big floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light. I love coming here, and I WILL be back for another chef board soon!
