Firebox has a menu that varies with the seasons and the availability of local farm fresh produce. The food preparation is creative and flavorful. We recently enjoyed the salmon and rib eye entrees with Brussel sprouts and butternut salad.

Was here for dinner at this edge of downtown restaurant located in near the State capitol building in a renovated forge that offers a farm-to-table New American menu. For my meal I had a Scottish Salmon served with Black pearl lentils and a cilantro sauce reduction. For the drink I had a 12 oz beer from Frangingham. Total cost was... More

We were in Hartford for a wedding and decided to treat ourselves to a nice brunch. It was perfect. Great place with delicious food, huge windows, lots of light and friendly staff. Food was fresh and surprisingly filling. The coffee was high quality and free refills. We also liked the restaurant's mission, investment and connection with the local community.

My husband and I had dinner here on Wed. night before going to The Bushnell. I've got to cut to the chase and just say, their food is quite good, but both courses that I had were not served hot, they were warm. I got the butternut squash soup for my appetizer and it was warm. I realize it can't... More

We had a nice dinner. I really liked that we could get organic chicken, and it was delicious. I had a glass of the muscato it was nice and sweet and I really enjoyed it. My husband had the duck and he didn't love it, but I am not a fan of duck and never like it anywhere. The place... More

Food and atmosphere was fantastic. Menu had something for everyone. Service was helpful and friendly but not very consistent. Brought the wrong drink and small-plate after initial order. Restaurant ran out of bread. Other than those two minor things, great spot. Awesome flavors. Salmon, Duck and Chicken were all cooked perfectly and would recommend all three. Looking forward to next... More

While there are not a lot of selections on the menu, there is something for everyone! Everything was so fresh! I had the special grilled eggplant and sweet potato purée to start, wonderful! My husband had the kale salad, it was good, but there are other nice choices. Waitress was excellent. Only downside was the food seem to take a... More

Firebox has a wonderful brunch menu selection. We had the kielbasa which came with grits and the egg sandwich with chicken sausage along with a side of brussel sprouts. The food is locally sourced so that's probably why the greens and everything else was so delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed eating outside in the sunshine.
