Last night I dined at that wonderful restaurant, it was one of the best dining experiences globally I have had. It was a special, important occasion for me and I messaged the restaurant through their FB page to make a reservation and also to make...some special requests. I had instant replies, from the owner himself who was extremely professional friendly & helped with everything. From providing the most private table with the best view, to organising a lovely bunch of flowers, wrote my note by their staff in a nicely presented way and even helped me video the moment by their staff. In addition, I had used Grab (Uber of Asia) to get there from Manila, with no secure way to get back afterwards... one of the staff arranged a driver, his father, to take me, his mum & Rhyel, the staff all came for the ride, now my new friends. Service was all incredible. The food was spectacular too, . our waiter was 5 star. the whole experience was really faultless, no better was possible, highly recommend.More

The australian tenderloin steak was super worth it! It literally melts in your mouth and it was perfectly cooked just the way we liked it paired with some veggies and mashed potatoes. Super quality and good tasting steak. We also tried their truffle pasta and...grilled chicken along the dalandan juice ( highlight of the night) and ice tea. They also gave us bread before the meal which is refillable 💯❤️ Kudos to the lady who serve us, super thoughtful and goes beyond the usual service 🤗 will def come back with the family or friends 🥰More

It has been a while since we visited Tagaytay. The pandemic really wrought havoc on our travel and date plans. Finally, on a weekend, we finally took the chance. We found out about Fire Lake Grill thanks to Google. It was one of the top...search results. We were giddy to arrive. The place was non-descript, nestled in the Cliffhouse Tagaytay. We almost drove past it. But the area was wide and we were able to park without much difficulty. Just a note: validate your parking ticket lest you want to pay gold for a few hours of parking. We arrived and Kim, our server, welcomed us warmly and accosted us to our seats: right in front of us is a stunning view of Taal lake and volcano. Since we were famished, we started off with the Seared Tuna Salad Nicoise-style and Mushroom and Pumpkin Soups. The tuna was seated perfectly, with a nice blend of spices crusted around it. The Pumpkin soup was thick and creamy, bringing out the flavors even more. The entrées were the stars of the show. A masterpiece of a TENDERloin, a juicy ribeye and a succulent lamb shank. Not to mention, a delectable saffron and herb risotto. The lamb and risotto was a perfect pair. And to top it all off, the desserts. Tasty vanilla caramel cake and chocolate cakes flanking the signature Fire Lake dessert: pinapple carpaccio. Coconut ice cream in a pastry cup on a bed of paper-thin slices of pineapple. Eat it together and the flavors just burst in your mouth. I added the lime peel and it even gave a greater dimension to the taste. Overall, it was a terrific experience at Fire Lake Grill. Great service. Great food. Great view. To Chef Paul, The Brigade de Cuisine and the Service Staff, thank you!More

I was first here last May 2021 and went back January 1st 2022, our first dinner for this year. Me and my daughter enjoyed their mouth watering, delectable, super yummy steaks and side dishes. Pumpkin soup and mushroom soup are both oh so yummy as...well. Love it that Chef Paul spent time for a small chit chat amidst being busy at the restaurant. Their staff are all so friendly and attentive to their customer's needs. We will definitely go back here! Five stars in every way!More

My husband and I took our family out-of-town for the first time in months since the pandemic. We couldn’t have chosen a better place to take them than Fire Lake Grill! Making reservations was a breeze! Chef Paul was very jovial and flexible even when...we needed to make last minute changes. We reserved a table for 6 in their al fresco area where we enjoyed the cool Tagaytay breeze. It was the perfect spot as we felt safe even if we had to remove our masks to eat. The food was excellent! Mom & my kids loved the touch of spice used to jazz up the pumpkin soup, and my husband & I found the grilled tomato soup very refreshing. The porterhouse steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The pan seared foie gras was so good that my daughter asked for a second serving! We also ordered pasta and risotto which were also nice. But my favorite was the grilled lamb chops which were so flavorful and tender! We thought we were too full to have dessert but the lime-infused panna cotta and the dark chocolate ganache were just what we needed to cap off our ambrosial feast! Our short but delightful trip to Fire Lake Grill was just the break we needed! Thank you Chef Paul and to your very friendly staff!More

Food was expensive for its quality Piece of plastic was found in pasta. We informed the waiter and he went inside to tell the Chef. The Chef did not come out immediately. Everytime we followed-up with the waiter, he just brushes us off and says...that he already told the chef and they are just busy. After about 20 minutes, the chef finally came out and just told us, "sorry, we are just so busy, so what do you want? Do you want a free dessert?" No explanation was given where the plastic could have come from, nor assurance that the plastic is not dirty.More

Thank you Chef Paul for making our personalized menu. You made our anniversary more special. My husband really liked the Rib Eye Steak 🙌🏻 I personally liked the Salmon too. If only I wasn’t full enough, I’d most definitely order a Pasta. But for sure,...we will go back here to dine in again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More

Chef Paul designed the restaurant so that one can see how the steak is prepared and grilled. For us, they serve the best steak in Tagaytay! You can try the great appetizers like salads and soups. Our favorite is the luscious pumpkin soup. The complimentary...bread is served hot with whipped butter on the side - yummy! On days when you don't want steak, you can try the duck, fish (eg halibut), lamb and bbq pork loin. His pasta selection is also a must try. Our favorite dessert is the pineapple carpaccio - delightful!More

As locals of Tagaytay, we get intimidated going to some places we to dine. We've been to Cliffhouse a number of times but never gone to this Grill till today. The food were really awesome, they exceeded our expectations. The service team were very accommodating...so is the very friendly Chef Huang. Our get together and dining experiences today was really better because of this place. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ We will surely go back.More
