Engine Co. No. 28

Housed in a beautifully restored 1912 firehouse, Engine Co. No. 28 has been putting out appetite fires since 1989 with classic American dishes inspired by the regional cooking of firehouses across the country.

The menu features a "signature" Meatloaf, New York Steak, Southern-style pan-fried chicken, crab cakes, Cobb salad, and Firehouse chili.

The weekly chef “specials” feature fresh grilled fish such as salmon, sea bass and seasonal vegetables. Daily soups include corn chowder, chicken tortilla lime, tomato basil, broccoli and many other rotating favorites.

The restaurant is reminiscent of the classic grills of San Francisco and New York - mahogany booths, white linen tables, granite bar and original brass fire pole - housed in a restored 1912 Los Angeles firehouse.

"Engine Co. No. 28 has been the old reliable before or after going to a performance at the Music Center for about 30 years. The food is good, as is the service, set in a warm and cozy place. I will look forward to the return of their shuttle service to and from the Music Center."

"I have eaten at Engine Co 28 several times over the past 10 years, but not in the last year. The quality of food, service, and value has declined significantly. Although I took time to explain a gluten free burger to the server (no bun), it arrived with a bun and had to be completely re-done. Ten minute wait, while the rest of the party ate their food. Last time I will be at Engine Co 28."

"I haven't been to this restaurant in a few years and forgot how nice it is and how good the food is! I remember the meatloaf was outstanding but this time I went with friends for Dine LA and the meatloaf was not on the menu for the event - but the steak I had was amazing. I'll be making it a point to come back more often. I don't know if they still shuttle to the Music Center but that was how we found Engine Co. No. 28 last time and I recall it was easy and pleasant to dine there (valet kept car until our return after the show that time). The building itself has a lot of character and our server was very pleasant and ensured our meal was perfect. Thank you!"

"Subject line says it all, we really liked the ambiance and decor, and the staff seemed friendly and accomidating. The food was just "ok" though, so in summary this is a nice pre-staples center dining location, but certainly won't be our sole "goto" one."

"I dined with a group of co-workers and enjoyed the meal... everyone had something different and all was well prepared and presented.
I particularly liked the brussel sprouts... really tasty... and the salmon topped salad... delicious. Salmon was a little dry, but I kind of like it that way."

"Our food was delicious from the DineLA menu. The only misstep was the key lime pie. It barely tasted like lime, no flavor. Not sure if made in house or bought but would not recommend that to anyone who likes key lime. The meat and calamari dishes were great."

"We had a really good meal overall at Engine Co. No. 28. The six of us each had something different, and everything was great except the salmon which was tasteless and dry/overcooked. The Caesar salad has very strong dressing, but is really good. All the meat and chicken and chilean sea bass was very tasty. The server had warned us that the salmon wasn't good, but one member of our party ordered it anyway. Should have known it would live up to its reputation."

"Stopped for dinner prior to seeing (an excellent) Van Morrison show at the Shrine. Food was ok, not nearly as good as I recall from past visits. Menu was less inventive than previously (which I recall featured named firehouse dishes from around the country). Service was a huge problem. Slow. Slow. Slow. Almost 2 hours for a 'quick' meal most of which involved our trying to find our waiter- who seemed to be covering the entire back half of the restaurant.
We have so many great choices now in downtown. It's a shame EC28 can't hold their own.

"I was looking forward to this night, however I was truly disappointed. The hostess appeared to be in training so I will give her that. But the food was just so, so. I won't be back."

"We were on our way to Cirque du Soleil at Dodger Stadium and wanted a fun place to eat in the city. Found Engine Co. No.28 on yelp and Trip Adviser. Both had good reviews. I had two teenagers with me. Steak and fish selections were very tasty and satisfied big appetites. Deserts were home made and delicious! Waiter was attentive, helpful and moved things along when we realized that we were running late. Could have hung out for longer in their beautiful, well stocked bar. We will go back for sure!"
