Fire & Stone Review

Book a table at Fire & Stone

If you’re looking for fusion dining, look no further. Fire and Stone is the latest offering from Carodene, a west-end restaurant group.

Centrally located on Maiden Lane, this venue certainly has the wow factor – wanna-be movie stars can flounce up the illuminated staircase, past a monstrous pebble-dashed pizza oven – reputedly the UK’s largest, offering 29 new wood-fired, stone-baked pizzas - to the huge, airy restaurant which is almost big enough to house a 747. Decor-wise, think Manhattan chic with a touch of the orient. An industrial grey ceiling reminiscent of up-turned egg cartons meets blood red walls adorned with Japanese cherry blossom and bamboo-effect accessories. It’s still early on a Monday night but the smart retro seats are already packed with diners.

Continents collide on the menu too. After a limited starter selection of pizza crusts or, well, pizza crusts (from £3.95 - enough for two), we ponder a weird and wonderful journey around the thin-crust of the world. Dipping into the Americas section, Fire and Stone’s Acapulco (£7.95) was deliciously peppy – slow-cooked chill beef with jalapenos, red onion and mozzarella, slathered in sour cream and guacamole. My hesitations over how well Asia would translate onto pizza dough were laid to rest – (four) juicy garlic prawns nestled on a generous heap of glistening fire-roasted peppers, drizzled with chilli oil, spring onions and hoi-sin sauce – brilliant fresh flavours with an oriental twist (Lombok, £7.95).

The verdict? As an alternative pizza experience, Fire and Stone have combined all the right elements in a chic, stylish environment - from the excellent service down to the complimentary mineral water. I did find the caramel and banana pizza with coconut ice cream (£4.50) delicious but it was an overkill after my two previous pizza courses. Perhaps a few additions to the bookends of the menu would be the icing on the cake – or should I say, the topping on the pizza.

“Quick pizzas, great variety too. Not cheap but then this is a West End restaurant. It does get quiet loud and busy too so don't take a date here. Good for those on the run. Not the best pizza in London though (see Franco Manca in Brixton for that).”

Tony Pugilli, Streatham (6 years 5 months 3 days ago)

“The idea of pizzas with toppings from different worldwide dishes isn’t very nice; I’d recommend you to stick to the sensible choices. It was a very busy Tuesday night and obviously they were rushing around trying to avoid eye contact with dinners to prevent more work, although they did seem nice whilst serving. However, when it came to paying! I found it VERY CHEEKY that the OPTIONAL service charge of 12.5%! was included in the total without any subtotals to tell you how much it would be without the service charge. And to add to this! Before I was able to ask for this to be removed from my payment, the lady took my card and went off with it to their till without a word (a card should never leave its owner’s sight as you would never know what they would be doing with it, they could be copying down your card details and you would know until you find money missing from your account! And I wasn’t too happy about that). I was expecting it was a chip and pin, but she came back with a receipt I had to sign for my card payment with the optional service charged included without asking! I ask her if the 12.5% service charge was optional and she replied “yes!” and turned away immediately! (I’ve read many other similar reviews where they’ve done this before, one even said they left without having a birthday cake they brought with them because they would’ve been charged for their service to cut and serve the cakes). I was very annoyed with this! And she OBVIOUSLY knew! Giving”

“Nice venue, good service, LOUSY pizza. My fiance & I had dinner there on Sat night & were so disappointed we were still talking about it the next day. We ordered the Bombay & the Byron Bay and were simply underwhelmed by the flavor or rather the lack there of. Someone needs to buy a spice rack for the chef - Or better yet - purchase him a flight to New York to learn how gourmet pizza is done! The only reason we may go back is for the half-price wine bottle happy hour. But this time we will order the San Francisco which is the closest to a margharita pizza- hopefully they can't screw that up! ”
