Don't go with a big group. They will seat u at one small table and cook 2 people's worth of food at a time. Half of your group will end up looking at the other half eat while they wait. Instead of just putting a large group at a double table so everyone can eat together.

We did not have a set server. It took a long time for anyone to take our order, despite pressing the button. The host had to take our order because nobody ever came to us. A table sat after us got their food before we did. Whenever a server would place the meat on the grill, they would walk away and not even turn down the fire so it would burn.

We were a big party & they were able to accommodate all of us and the service was fantastic!!!!! Thank you so much for a great time. My family loved the new experience for them. I asked for a birthday dessert and we all got something it was great.

The food and service at Firepan are great! The best part is being able to reserve a table (esp for a large group). The kids loved the melon pops for dessert.

Super fun restaurant with great quality ingredients. We had the AYCE Option 1 which gave plenty of options and lots to eat. If you want veggies (onions, garlic pepper) or lettuce to make wraps -- you simply need to ask.

Great event and above average quality on meat and seafood for Korean BBQ.

All you can eat...but if you don’t eat more than 2 plates..stick with single orders.

This was my first Korean BBQ experience. We had the soy brisket, soy steak and chicken. Our favorite was the chicken. The meat was pretty good. We all wished there was something more to the sauces that were provided. I felt they were a bit bland. I would've like something with a bit more kick to it. The chicken had the most flavor. The marinade The sides were nice. We lime the onion salad the most. Both of the kimchi was just ok. The experience wasn't as I had expected. Maybe it would have been better with a larger group.

No acknowledgment of our special occasion. We wanted to avoid crowds so we booked a 5pm early dinner. When we walked in, we were the only table and service was still mediocre. The female server was not that friendly and made us feel bad for asking her to replenish our side dishes. Food wasn’t bad at all. Worth a try!

The KBBQ AYCE options were more limiting in choices than other nearby establishments such as in Annandale, VA.

Love the options and the value. Our waitress was phenomenal. Would like to have seen better social distancing at larger tables but where we were had nice dividers. Restaurant is very loud. We would recommend

What we did order was great but they had almost nothing in stock to drink and didn’t have many side dishes to go with our orders. For 4 people & some drinks it was $180 after tax and tips. One bottle of soju was $12.99!!!! Whaaatt?!?! We’ll be back another time for a date night or something small, but definitely more expensive than anything I experienced in Korea. The staff was incredible sweet and helpful

Perhaps they were understaffed during our last visit, but Firepan is back to having your server grill the meat for you! They have built a wall in the middle of the restaurant to encourage social distancing. The food was great (Pork Combo was back as well) and they even gave us ice cream at the end.

Good food. Not the best I’ve had but okay. The shrimp was not cleaned nor cut at the top which made for an unappealing dish. I was looking forward to the shrimp too!

The food was great and the service was fast, servers came by frequently to check on us. I have celiac’s disease and can’t have gluten and I was able to eat the thinly sliced brisket and thinly sliced pork, sliced wasabi radish, and steamed egg with no issues (I’m pretty sensitive/get sick easily). The Kpop playing was nice and they have a nice variety of flavored soju. It was clean and not too smoky. Definitely will go again!!

I liked the atmosphere, ambiance, staff, and overall experience. Unfortunately the quality of the meat was just not meeting the same level as the other components of the restaurant. At the same price points there are much better options in Annandale but I am hopeful that the restaurant can work to source better meats for the future if they seek to improve!

Generous meat portions, good baanchan, and AYCE option is off the chain. A great, clean dining option with K-Pop music videos streaming on the wall. Loved it, will return.
