Went here last night for a small birthday celebration for my daughter's 5th birthday last night. This place is awful. It all looks very cool but that's about as good as it gets. We ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter just went ahead and poured without offering a taste first. I hate that. I ordered the "Cape Town" pizza and it was absolutely awful. Was supposed to be a pepperoni pizza with GROUND beef and chilies. It came topped with the most bland pepperoni ever, and BLOBS of what I assume was beef dolloped here and there. It was chewy and tasteless and arrived luke warm. There was no seasoning whats so ever on it. I only ate it as I couldn't bare to ruin my daughther's birthday meal. On that note the waiter brought the wrong meal for my daughter. My wife and I were half way through by the time hers arrived. Her meal was also awful. My daughter is not a fussy eater believe me, I've never seen her leave anything but I didn't blame her in this case. Her meal was basically some dry tubes of pasta with the same chewy, tastless BLOBS of meat I had on my pizza.

As for the service well that stinks. Twice a waiter came over to us with someone else's order. I ordered an ice cream for my daughter and mentioned it was my little girl's birthday and could they please put a candle or sparkler in it. Of course it arrived without either. Then halfway through the waiter came over and plonks a lit candle in the middle of her ice cream. My daugher didn't know what was going on. The waiter walked away, the candle fell into her ice cream and I had to fish out a lit candle from her ice cream.

Then the bill arrives with the "optional" 12.5% tip. I paid by credit card and the "optional" tip was already added to the total when the waiter handed me the credit card machine. And finally to top off a wonderful experience my wife went to the ladies toliet only to find that out of the three cubicles, one didn't have a working light, the other had no toilet tissue and last but not least the 3rd was dirty. That was the final straw and we complained to the front desk. My daugther was given a cheap balloon by way of compensation. Seriously this place should be shut down. Avoid it at all costs!!!

Terrible service. Cannot say anything about food, as we didn't get any. Place has a child menu, therefore we assumed that it is child friendly. Hostess showed us downstairs to the table with 4 chairs, each chair opposite side of the table. We asked to be seated to the table with adjusting sofas, as it is quite difficult to control 3 year old child then he seats on a separate chair opposite to you, but he is too big for high chair. Hostess refused to seat us on that kind of table, although the restaurant was half empty and there were at least 8 free tables with sofas. I am very disappointed as administration showed no compassion at all!!! This place is not child friendly, don't know why they do kid's menu. Won't go there again.

Ate at Fire & Stone near Covent Garden for the first time yesterday after being handed a 2 for £12 flyer near Covent Garden market.

Air-con was a little high, the restaurant was cold despite being busy!

Ordered the current special pizza, The Pembroke which features lamb, roast potato, butternut squash, gravy and mint sauce and it was amazing! Reasonable amount of meat, nice flavours just a really great different approach to pizza. The base could of been a tiny bit crisper but was good.

Service was fine, no complaints really.

We were at Fire and Stone Covent Garden last night on our staff night out and I have to say the night was amazing...

We booked the table at the very last minute (there was 16 of us) and the lady on the phone was so helpful and really went out of her way to get us a table.

When we arrive the restaurant was bursting with atmosphere. Every table was filled (which says alot about a restaurant of that size). We got a drink at the bar (staff were attentive and friendly) and were seated at our table within minutes. Service was fantastic, our waiter was very attentive (we are not an easy bunch) and was very patient with us.

Food was great. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and there were no complaints from anyone.

All staff were lovely and I can't wait to return. :)

Just to add what has already been a very bad set of reviews for this resturant.

The food was terrible and the service made this experience one to forget!

The pizzas were poor and the quality of the ingredients were below sub-standard.

One pizza was stone cold. Starters were'nt great; calamari over done and the dips tasted like they were from the supermarket shelves (own brand quality).

Took us over an hour just to pay for our meals and not once were we asked during or after if our meals were ok. Then they had the nerve to add the full 12.5% service charge automatically to the bill....

Went there last night, made the mistake of ordering the Koh Samui pizza, it was the worst pizza I have ever eaten, bone dry, flavorless and chewy. Couldn't finish more than half, waiter didn't react when taking my plate away even though it was obvious that I was disappointed.

The place has potential to be decent but ultimately disappoints. Its a pedestrian restaurant best suited for big groups of teenagers out for the night and tight on cash, for all the grownups, please keep looking..

l was really looking forward to having 1 of the different & exciting looking pizzas on the menu for The Fire & Stone being coined 'the best pizza restaurant in Gunwharf' by my friend. l had quite high expectations. .

However, despite the pizzas looking great (the presentation of them certainly was not at fault) but, the actual taste of them WAS! -Just the sheer quality of the meat on mine & my friends pizzas was not of a very good standard at all... You could tell it was of a low quality & that was why it made the whole pizza taste really not up to the standard you would expect at £10 a head.. Even the base & basic tomato & mozzarella sauce was also lacking in taste & flavour.. did they even season it?! Herb seasoning aswell would of been much desired on it, l mean anything Italian needs herb seasoning..

-Basically they really need to source their meat & choose their ingredients more carefully, in a restaurant -taste really is everything.

If you're looking for a great tasting pizza do not come to The Fire & Stone as you will be disappointed when you taste it! Trust me.. l hope they realise this in time & change. l'll be going back there in a year.
