    The service was great, but the online menu did not match the in house menu. Since I looked at the menu and had an idea what I wanted I had to change. Of all the times we have been here this was the first time they had huckleberry mud pie available.

    Terrible service from our waiter. He acted like we were an inconvenience to him. After the very kind host sat us, we sat for over 20 mins before our waiter even came by. He never stopped to check in on us and we had to tell him we wanted drinks and to order dinner. Food came out fast, was mediocre. Took our waiter 20 min to bring our check and it wasn’t very busy. Save your money, not worth it. Ambiance was nice. Two thumbs down for your wait staff.

    We really enjoyed the live music, but were disappointed by the limited menu. We were told we weren’t allowed to order off the happy hour menu (and pay regular price) after 6:00. But quite a while after 6:00 other tables kept getting orders of happy hour apps. We also both ordered starters, which were brought out at the same time as our main course. It was a good environment, but the food left a lot to be desired. We’ve visited friends for cocktails at the bar before and I think we will stick to that in the future.

    We had a great Easter brunch. The food and service was great. Only complaint was the French toast with berries. It was $15 and the serving was 3 half slices of toast and about 8 blueberries. We had 4 people in our party order this and they all left hungry. Very over priced for the portion.

    I had the red pepper tomato soup that was wonderful (with a little added salt). For my entree, I had the fish and chips. I did not think I could find fish and chips better than this dish served at Omaha’s Dundee Dell, but Firebrand fish and chips exceeded my expectations! Nice ambiance and good service.

    This is more of a lounge than a restaurant. The setting is in the hotel lobby. The service was a little slow for a not nearly full Friday night. Server was more attentive, it appeared to friends. The food was average, but as described. This was describe as a companion or as comparable to the Boat Club, but Boat Club is far superior.

    Short staffed, but good service. Limited menu had mixed reviews. Gnocchi in red sauce was “just alright”, charcuterie board was overpriced $18 for melon and hard salami, beef filet with broccoli and potatoes was great, Caesar salad was best in town. Unfortunately dessert was not ready at 5:30pm which was a let down

    Unfortunately this beautiful establishment is suffering from an extreme lack of servers out front and by our experience, a terrible kitchen staff...we are locals and have had many wonderful meals and service there bot not right now...we got things we didnt order, didnt get things we did, the bill was wrong etc. However, to their credit, when i spoke to the manager(very kindly as i am acutely aware of how "horrible it is to be in hospitality right now") she reduced our bill to as fair a price as she could manage so kudos for that.

    Enjoyable evening at Firebrand. Ordered Charcuterie but was very disappointed. Cheddar seemed out of a snack pack, 2 sausages seemed to be identical and greasy pretzel. Not much for $18. The steak was very good though. Service was so so as our waiter seemed more interested in talking to neighboring tables of more people compared to our table of 2. Forgot to bring our extra glass of wine until after dinner was finished but comped us one without us asking. Ambience was great and loved the music.

    We had a reservation, they seated us promptly. The food was delicious, hot and presentation beautiful. Server was prompt and the dining room manager checked on us twice...great to see a manager on the floor! The only reason I rated 4 stars instead of 5 was the server kind of forgot us when it was time to bring the bill and we had a show to get to.

    What a disappointment! Previously, we enjoyed the window seats in the pre-COVID Firebrand hugely and finally decided to return after a year or so for dinner last night. The live music was too loud and the charcuterie plate was dismal. On our previous visits the charcuterie plate offered a variety of locally smoked sausages, small tastes of a variety of cheese, fruits, crisp crackers, etc. Last night we were served cheese curds and grocery-store salami with deep-fat-fried pretzels - yuck. With 6 wines available by the glass - they were out of the one I ordered. The Caesar salad was mediocre. We are very sad to see such a decline in a nice venue for dining before the theatre.

    We made reservations, but when we arrived there was no hostess to seat us. We waited for over 10 minutes and even after we notified the bartender, no one came. We seated ourselves. Our waitress did a good job. We ordered the eggrolls and brie cheese plate as appetizers. Took quite a while to receive them, but both were very good. We ordered fish tacos, duck confit and caesar salad and french onion soup. Fish tacos were very good, but small portion. Same with the duck confit... very small portion. Caesar salad dressing was oily and bland. Soup was good. Overall, an average restaurant experience.
