We had a lovely meal here. It was a weeknight, not terribly busy, but I have a feeling that the staff is just as attentive on a busy night. The menu is varied and the dishes beautifully prepared. We look forward to a return trip.

My husband and I wanted to try a restaurant we hadn't been to previously. We decided on Firebox even though I heard from three people that they liked Firebox but it wasn't exceptional. Well, we disagree with those people! The staff was exceptional, our server...More

Yes. Shouldn't be a problem. In cases like that I usually mention to the server that we have tickets to a show and they will ensure you make it on time.
