At the heart of our culinary philosophy is an unwavering commitment to make every meal an extraordinary experience. Fuego-which is Spanish for fire-is a spirited celebration of the coastal cuisines of Mexico, Latin America and South America.

With a vibrantly colored indoor-outdoor dining room overlooking panoramic views of downtown Long Beach and the historic Queen Mary, Fuego is an amazing restaurant in Long Beach CA that specializes in mariscos (fresh seafood). Also featured is a generous array of antojitos (appetizers), as well as tacos, tortas and entrées.

The bar serves premium tequilas-the largest selection in the region-that may be sampled at the bar along with handcrafted margaritas and other signature cocktails. Fuego also hosts Maya Fiesta Domingo-a festive outdoor brunch featuring Baja-style seafood and savory barbecue accompanied by live Latin Jazz.

A beautiful view back onto the Long Beach skyline. Open air lunch with very friendly staff.
My wife and I both had different tacos: fish & steak and they both very good. I would recommend they look at changing the sauce on one of them since they were both the same sauce which makes the tacos taste the same and yet fish vs meat.
I will go back and try other items on the menu.

With such a spectacular view of the water and harbor it is hard not to enjoy Fuego. The service we had was slow and several others were seated before us even though we had a reservation and had been asked to wait before the others came in. The music was great, the food was fantastic and we had an enjoyable time.

The restaurant is awesome with a spectacular view of Long Beach and the Queen Mary. It’s very lovely on the patio. It is a Mexican restaurant but found out chips and salsa both have to be ordered from the menu. It does not come with the meal! I ordered the cheese enchiladas and they were barely warm when they arrived. My friend stated that her food was just ok. I would not go back for the food but maybe drinks with a view. The meal was pricey for Mexican which would have been ok if the meal was hot like it should have been. I don’t mind mind paying when the food is good. We were both disappointed.

Food fantastic!
Very poor service. After being sat we talked for a least 15 minutes. My wife looked up and noted no one had approached our table for water or drinks. We sat for another 10 minutes when we asked a server if he was our our waiter. He replied he could be if we wanted him. Odd? We noted that at least 3 couples had been served that come in after us. Finally another server asked if he could assist us. It appeared that a manager was talking to several single woman guest at different tables most of the evening. Terrace was one half full with five waiters. They all seemed either new or just there for a paycheck. Very unfriendly. Not rude just lackadaisical. Would have left but we spend every anniversary there and the food is to die for. The friendliest person was your bar tender. I walked over to get a refill of my Tom Collins. He went out of his way with conversation and some really good jokes. Debating weather to return in the future. Sad! We stay at the hotel often. That is why food received 5 stars and service one.

Made reservation days prior to event. Received courtesy call on the day of reservation letting us know of a special event that was happening the same evening which was a live “Latin Jazz Band” and if we wanted a quieter more intimate seating area, they would do the best they could to accommodate that. I appreciated the call mentioning that we would still look forward to seating for two with a view. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated promptly which was perfect! The food was amazing, the music however was okay. They were having sound issues to their defense, they were more of a cover band singing Carlos Santana that’s just my opinion. We will definitely be back.

We've been here a few times and the food is always good. The service typically runs a little on the slow side, which is what we experienced again. This time, they had a live band playing great salsa music, but it was a little loud considering it was still early - we got there at 6:30pm. I would expect the louder music around 9 pm. We ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and Braised Beef Short Ribs - both very good. The restaurant is on the waterfront, so you can't beat the view. We will definitely return.

Gorgeous view, delicious meal, excellent service---BUT, OMG!!!! I will never ever reserve here again BEFORE asking if the grass by the restaurant is going to be cut and blown during my meal. I could have stayed home and got all this noise from my neighbors gardeners. I reserved a table of 7 and all was super until the gardeners got going about 12:30pm----middle of our meal. We couldn't hear each other. RUINED the experience. I couldn't believe that the Maya management would allow this NOISE during lunch. Can I have my money back? Wonderful place, but ask about NOISE from the gardeners before reserving.

First of all, the venue, overlooking the inner bay of Long Beach, exuded a great calming ambiance with a spectacular view.
The service was impeccable, from the greeting upon arrival, the manner by which my requested table was handled, to our server Skylar, all spoke to a first rate hiring and in-service training. Skylar struck the perfect balance between being attentive to our dining needs versus giving us space to discuss business.
The food was created and prepared in an innovative manner that reflected excellent Californian- Mexican fusion. My short rib tamales and my guest’s Chilean Sea Bass were done to perfection.
The wine list was respectable and paired well with the menu offerings.
Highly recommend this restaurant. It is one of the favourites in the Long Beach area for my wife and me.

Although it was a bit pricey, it was well worth it for a panoramic view of the harbor, good service and great food. This is my 4th time I've been there with husband and friends. Considering having our 25th wedding anniversary there!

The annual 4th of July dinner and fireworks this year was excellent. Fuego has one of the most beautiful views of the Long Beach shore, combined with a superb Mexican inspired buffet menu and superb service, which made the 4th of July dinner experience unforgetable.

Upper dining area is not accessible to everyone. The lift for people using wheelchairs or walkers is HORRIFIC. Distance to restrooms using alternate ramp may be too far for all those who have limited mobility. Since the best views and the live music performances are in the upper area, the lack of accessibility is disappointing.

We have gone there many times but since the last time they changed management of the restaurant. They are definitely concentrating on the bottom line over increasing customer satisfaction.
First, service is spotty, it depends who you have, a couple of the waiters are very good who have served us before but a couple others especially the one that waited on us were not very attentative, had to get their attention numerous times.
Second, Before they had unlimited champagne for an extra $10.00 but now it is $5.00 per glass.
Third, They have an entree along with the brunch items. Since we couldn't finish the entrée we always took it home but now they will not allow this to happen. I believe thatit should be a sin to throw food away. We noticed that before the restaurant always packed but yesterday, it was half full the whole time we were there, and we left about 2 p.m. Tell you the truth I don't know if we will go back anymore.

Great food, great venue but a bit pricey. Fabulous brunch but it could cost less if they didn't give you a choice of entree but add an omelette station. They have a taco bar, fruit, cheese, salad and dessert bar can fill you up!

The food was delicious. We were even given a chocolate mousse cake for the birthday celebration. The ambiance and soft music was great and we sat on the water front. Very romantic but still family friendly. I will be coming back for many more dinners.
