Best Place AROUND!!! – There's a sort of magic in the air when your dining with the cast of Out of the Fire Cafe in Donegal, PA. From the Delightful ambiance to the unique creations of the house chef and their team, my dining experiencnce is always delightful.
I'd recomend this place to anyone whon knows what GOOD food tastes like!
FOOD CRITICS REVEIW – DO NOT EAT HERE. Would of given it a zero but there wasn't one. I have been in the culinary field for over 30 years & this by far was my WORST experience . Both my husband & myself are executive chefs. Some of my husband's positions have include Executive chef at one of top 5 private clubs in the U.S.A. He was requested by President Bush to cook at the White house(have pictures if needed) & dean of culinary instruction.We have prepared dinner for Prince Charles & other heads of state. I am a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America & culinary instructor. WE KNOW HOW TO COOK.
Their menu says one thing and you are served something else. Example the menu says JUMBO lump crab meat & you get lump crab meat. for what they charge you should receive JUMBO lump crab meat.The term fresh & roasted should be explained to the chef.Truth in menu laws seem not to apply here.
Our food was VERY over seasoned, over & or under cooked and just plain awful. The man who spoke to us was just plain rude & ignorant (lacks knowledge) he dismissed us as if he was correct. What ever happened to the customer is always right??? He came to the table with an attitude & was confrontational to say the least. We tried to explain to him our background but he wasn't listening. As we were walking out I overheard him speaking to a worker, "If it wasn't right she should of sent it back." Why would I after the way we were treated.Meaning we were in the dinning room in front of other customers who knows what goes on in the kitchen where you can't see, and it probably would of been even worse if that was possible
Unprofessional and Dishonest – I was very disappointed with the lack of professionalism and the breach of verbal agreement that has been presented to me by this restaurant... I am planning a wedding on Sept. 12th, 2009, which is 5 weeks away from today. I spoke with the owner of this restaurant, Jeffrey Fryer, over 6 months ago on several occasions about holding my rehearsal dinner here on Sept. 11th, 2009. I was assured that this date was reserved for us. I had a meeting with their "new GM" Mason 3 days ago, who discussed a menu with us in preparation for our big day (and a party of 50 people!!)
One day later I received an email stating that they will be "unable to accomodate our party" with no specific reason cited. This is unacceptable and no one has bothered to give me a proper explanation, nor have they returned my calls or emails. I am not sure what type of "business" they are trying to run, but it is certainly not honest or ethical. I will never recommend their services in any way in the future as I cannot trust their level of follow-through and I am now left scrambling to find a new location for a rehearsal dinner less than 5 weeks from my wedding. Please do not patronize this business.
