    While the appeal of a central fireplace may lose a tiny bit of its charm in July, this Northwest Portland hub has another draw in the summertime.

    The outdoorsy food menu includes a hearty elk chili and plenty of grilled things, from flatbread pizza to lettuces and brick chicken, while a wallet-friendly spread of cocktails offers fiery, smoky mescal- and scotch-fueled concoctions.

    Also ringing up at $6 -- seven signature cocktails like the maple syrup-tinged Applejack Rabbit, and perhaps most importantly, the housemade S'mores.

    Took a break from browsing the shops to have lunch. The Fireside was a fine choice. My wife had the Cobb Salad and I had the Fireside Skillet. The salad was large and had excellent meat. The skillet is a lighter fare that's very tasty. The place has sidewalk seating and window seating where the windows can be fully opened. A great option for people watching!

    My husband and I were walking around the neighborhood and found this lovely place. It was a beautiful day so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather. Hannah was our waitress and was spot on. She left us wanting for nothing. We had a snack of delicious french fries and a scrumptious soft boiled egg. The cocktails were huge which was wonderful. This was a great place to take a break.

    The astrosphere and very friendly staff make the visit to The Fireside worth the stop. The food is good, with some dishes better than others. Ask the staff for their favorites. They are very helpful. A must to go restaurant in the winter. Lovely fireplace.

    The restaurant is located in downtown area. It is quite popular with locals and we had done prior booking. The food was delicious and service prompt and friendly.

    Service was great. We were seated outside so had a bit of sidewalk cafe feel. Cocktails were delicious.

    I came here multiple times for dinner and everything on their menu is delicious. Some things I particularly recommend are the salmon on the polenta, as well as the albacore tuna or a cheeseburger. I would make reservations for outdoor seating, as 23rd is such a cute street, especially in the evening. Definitely come to the Fireside!

    We got a recommendation from a local about this place and it was outstanding. The dining room is dominated by a large fireplace. The bar served interestting drinks and the food was excellent. The brussels sprouts were the best we've had (and we get them everywhere!). The meat snack board was also great

    Every time when we are visiting this area, we need to go to this restaurant. Whether it's for lunch or dinner, the food is always good. You can sit outside (Summer) and inside and enjoy the cosy atmosphere.

    Uninteresting snack food and disappointing drinks (coffees and sodas). Service was disinterested and restrooms dark. Feels like it's trading on location and decor, not the food. Hopefully the main meals are better.

    This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy an evening. The service was excellent. It was easy to see that people were enjoying their food.

    The food, service and casual ambiance at this restaurant are all top-notch. We had the seared halibut special and it was "to die for." We also loved the brussels sprouts appetizer and had a great bottle of wine. We'd definitely go back for another meal here.

    Walked right in on a Friday night and sat right down at a great table near an open window. Our waiter Rory was fun and attentive with great recommendations. I had the halibut special that evening and enjoyed it immensely. They make their own tonic (I had a vodka tonic) and I'm not quit sure why they do this and it's a little different tasting - Rory told me this before I got it which was appreciated. Atmosphere is comfortable and casual. People were dining outside with their dog. Enjoyable evening on a nice warm summer night.

    This is a lovely space with great use of indoor/outdoor space allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoor weather or sit cozy by the fire! Food was delicious!

    We came here after a rainy morning trip to Multnomah Falls. We had a large booth near the fire place in the back of the restaurant. My friend had some dietary restrictions and they accommodated her. The meals were brought out promptly. The burger was juicy and the steak cooked to perfection. The flat bread was an interesting mix of flavors.

    It was late on a Satuday night. We had just traveled by Street Car from downtown Portland to Northwest. We weren't starving, but knew it was time to sit, relax and enjoy the nightly Portland hipster parade on NW 23rd. We made a great choice. The Fireside is friendly, warm (fireplaces, of course) and attentive. We found a place at the bar, took over our stoosl and enjoyed an hour of so of very good cocktails, imaginative appetizers and personal service. Try the beet chips and the grilled brussel sprouts. The menu was very promising which leads us to the conclussion we'll be back for a full dinner on our next visit to Portland.

    This is a real nice cozy place with fireplaces in the front and back area. Nice bar, the menu does not have many options to choose from. The service is amazing. Great place to start the evening with for drinks and appetizers.

    Without reservations and at the end of Highball week, the group of 5 of us was worried about finding some space to get together, have a drink, and talk. Fireside was a great place to start the evening-classy, not too crowded, and a niche at the bar. Their highball drink was unique and tasty, the bartenders attentive, and a good atmosphere. It seems a little fancy and upper whatever, given that it is on NW 23rd, not surprising.

    Service was great. Chilli was average; not a lot of flavor. Beet chips were different. Kabobs and flatbread were great. The staff was very helpful. I would have preferred more variety in the menu. Wine pairing were good.

    We were visiting family and wanted a cozy place for high quality food on a rainy evening. Fireside hit it dead on. The restaurant has a warmly lit beautiful bar with fireplaces and dining areas both in front of and in the back of the restaurant. We were seated at a table next to a pit fireplace and coupled not have been cozier. The food was as good as the atmosphere - perhaps even better. As it was restaurant week, they had a special set menu ar $29 for three courses which we both ordered. The meal opened with a delicate creamy potato soup heavily flavored with truffles and herbs. It was over the top delicious. Next came a main consisting of a perfectly grilled hanger steak over roasted fingerling potatoes and Brussels sprouts with a savory blackberry sauce. Again a really excellent and tasty rendering. My expectation for the set desert was low but I was blown away. It consisted of toasted brioche with blue cheese ice cream, blue cheese crumbled, candied bacon lardons and a berry drizzle. Wow! Service was prompt and friendly despite a full, busy house and I appreciated that the wait staff were very knowledgeable about the dishes they were serving and took the time to answer questions and discuss the food. At least the night we were there, Fireside was at the top of its game and we will be back!

    Perfect for a tourist stop this very Portland style eatery is in eccentric Portland boutique neighborhood. All delicious. It's quite noisy but reasonable prompt
