This place was such a gem! The quaint and eccentric ambiance were enough to grab ahold of our attention, but the drinks were absolutely incredible! I have never had cocktails so impeccably done! The food was absolutely fabulous as well! We normally don’t stay for dessert, but we decided to try the tiramisu and the cookie skillet, and we were not disappointed! This place is a unique experience with exceptional service. We will definitely be back!

We declined the first table and very happily the receptionist sat us at another table without any hesitation. The food was delicious, we thought the calamari was exceptional!!! Acknowledgement of my birthday was a nice, sweet surprise. No matter which Big Burrito restaurant we go to we always look forward to eating there again! What a treasure for Pitsburgh :)

I can’t say enough about Bonfire! Took my girls there for Mother’s Day brunch. We immediately commented how cute the place was and how good it smelled. Service was awesome and the food was to die for. A little pricey but good food portions and well worth it. Don’t hesitate to try this place!
