A Chowhounder had recently commented that it had gotten good again. I agree. Highly recommend the Fireplace Signature chicken - and the sides were very good too, especially the squash and succotash. And the squash bisque was perfect.
As for the service - the front end staff greeted us in a friendly and professional manner but we were stuck and stricken with was a sullen, sour waitress. After the professionalism of the bartender and greet staff, the wicked waitress seemed even more wretched. Overall however we enjoyed The Fireplace and look forward to returning.
