My sister and brother in law took us out for a meal. It was a lovely evening and we were delighted to be seated at a round table by the window. The waiter was attentive, brought us water straight away and quickly followed with wine. On the menu there was a fixed price three course meal which three of us... More

Good service and good food. We enjoy the 3 course menu both for the value and the choices. The salmon was a hit with our friend. Desserts - small portions and always just what we like at the end of the meal. My one disappointment was I told the person when I booked our table that it was a birthday... More

Restaurant located in historic Tudor hall-house building. Cozy and inviting ambience. Popular with older crowd. Service was excellent - professional, knowledgeable and friendly. They accommodated our large family seating us upstairs for dinner overlooking the dining room. Ordered the 3 course meal. Food was good but not completely memorable and portions are on small side. Busy restaurant - reservations recommended.

On holiday with family and decided to try the Fireside Grill for dinner on our last night before returning to UK. Wasn't disappointed. Our party of 4 adults and 2 children, 10 and 3 all had different meals and all were well prepared and delicious. Friendly and welcoming staff. Really enjoyed the occasion. Recommended

Went here for dinner with my family on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is super cozy with a great atmosphere. Service was a bit slow, and my mom had to ask for ice twice before she got it. The food was good though. The seafood chowder was delicious and the smoked salmon pizza was good too, although the crust was... More

Took a couple for their engagement dinner and it was wonderful. Service was great. Food spot on everyone enjoyed it. Couldn't have asked for better. We will be back. Wine is a tad expensive, but it is at most places.

We had soups and salads for lunch and the food was good quality and good value. Nothing fancy. But a pleasant experience and very friendly service.

We originally went to Med Grill across the street, but there was a 20 minute wait for a table. We decided to walk over to Fireside Grill as there was no wait for a table at 7:30 pm on a Tuesday evening. I wish we had waited for a table at Med Grill. At Fireside Grill, the fireplace was lit...

While the restaurant itself is lovely and the staff are friendly, the food is very bland. My family and I ate here last weekend and tried the set menu; started, main, dessert. They are selling themselves as serving gourmet food, at reasonable prices. Sure, the set menu was reasonably priced, but we found that the food was not worth it.... More

Description
The Fireside Grill is a wonderfully refurbished heritage manor with an upbeat atmosphere ideal for casual fine dining to small or large parties. The Fireside blends European & Asian recipes with proven West Coast favourites. We source many of our ingredients from local producers and farmers. We believe that farm to table is the best way to showcase our great local cuisine. Come and enjoy our 3 course -$25 menu offered every evening till November.
