Excellent food, good service, and nice decor. Noise level with the bar and open balcony very loud. Would have preferred the noise level much lower for fine dining.

The venison and beef were hard and chewy. Both were low quality cuts of meat. The duck and fish were great.

We celebrated Mother’s Day with brunch. Firestones brunch is always a great experience. The food and service are great. Although some of the menu items were what I would consider to be “heavy” for brunch in May, all of our party loved the food. I hope live jazz can come back soon!

We had a delightful seat overlooking Market St. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Food was very good with one minor disappointment in that the duck confit leg was dry. Cocktails were properly made and strong.

We went here for a date night. It was lovely. The noise wasn't too much, the food was excellent, and the server let me try my wine before deciding which to order. I would highly recommend coming here.

We went for our 30th anniversary; it was our first time. I was pleased with the social distancing and masking requirements. The Waygu sirloin was amazing, as was the goat cheese ravioli and mussels. My only problem was the noise level, which is always an issue for me in most places it down town Fredrick. But other than that, great food, great service, and very reasonable pricing. We roll go again.

We had a wonderful evening, seated at an upstairs window table. (It’s our favorite place to sit.... great street view! Note that there’s no restroom up there though, in case that would be an issue).

I had made reservations for a sister birthday celebration, just two people. They accommodated us as we requested a window seat upstairs. It was a perfect Sunday to sit and have brunch and watch Frederick look normal again, sunny day, everyone out with their dogs, shopping, eating... The food and service was excellent! Must go back with husband!

I love brunch at Firestones. It’s relaxing and the food is always good. I would like to see a bit more menu options or specials at brunch. We go fairly regularly and some variety would be great.

As always, it was excellent. There was a very loud couple next to us who had no understanding of how obnoxious they were being, but this is not your fault. We love Firestone and will be back for sure (hopefully, the loud couple will not).

I made a reservation for noon on a Tuesday and we were seated at a very nice window table upstairs. The service was on time and friendly and both meals (and beers) were delicious. We had the cheese steak with arugula salad and a BLTA with fries. We were able to eat and visit without feeling rushed.
