We made a last minute reservation, got a great corner time. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable.
Wine was delicious and very reasonable, clams were amazing,and entree was delicious.
This is our third time there, and excellent every time
Delicious food served by friendly staff. We had a relaxed and yummy dinner. We will be back.
I really like the Firehouse. Great place for a date, it’s got a wonderful patio. A varied menu, great wood Fire Pizza.
Best meal I have had at this restaurant. This is probably my seventh or eighth time there. They do not have a good cocktail program and the wine list is small, but if those two things do not bother you, this is a great place for dinner. I used to think of this as an Italian joint, but last night we ate only small plates and they were all good.
I love it when a group of friends can get together to share a meal it's even better when sharing plates can add to the fun. Artisan pizza with a few small plates and your table will be in heaven. The Prawns are a must have and a great pairing with the steamers. Not just any steamers, these babies are sitting on-top of a major hunk of crusty house bread soaking up the wonderful sauce. The prawns have an touch of natural smoke flavor, a perfect match to the wood fire pizza.
A hit with friends, always a good meal.
My boyfriend and I were celebrating our two year anniversary and wanted to do something special and different. I LOVE using the scissors to cut your own slices.
My only complaint would be that the crust on the pizza was a little burnt.
Other than that, we had a great time laughing, eating, and drinking on the outdoor patio. It felt intimate even with a table of four (including two children) sitting next to us.
The Firehouse is a neighborhood restaurant for us and it never disappoints. The wood-fired food is great. Pizzas are delicious. Happy hour is short but good. House wines are a deal. A great place to go with friends!
Highly recommend the bandini (European sea bass) entree....lots of bones but absolutely delicious. The chocolate pot de creme is also a winner!
Wonderful food and nice atmosphere. Also nice outside seating area. Will definitely come back.
I love this place! And so do all my friends. Go there!
Excellent evening meal on the patio. Attentive staff. Efficient service, but not rushed. World class meatballs. Even the pizza scissors were classy.
Great food, they have awesome pizza, and very genuine and kind staff. Fun cocktails, good wine selection. Not a ton of beer selections but all they have are good. Wonderful place to go if it is nice out and you can get an outdoor table!
I figured Firehouse would be good, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. We sat outside on a warm night and it was really nice. The greeting was genuinely warm and the service was great. We started with a salami pizza and it 'blew me away', it was hands down the best pizza I've ever had ('crack pie'), followed with probably the best pork chop ever! I had brought a bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which matched perfectly. I would give my highest recommendation to this restaurant, and I will return often.
My friend and I ate family style, sharing the cauliflower, romaine salad, meatballs, and a ragu pasta dish. It was all delicious and the service was attentive, but not overbearing. We'll be going back!
Been here multiple times for the Hanger steak which is normally amazing beyond belief. This time it was incredibly tough and hard to eat. Staff is almost always incredibly friendly. Once in a while, there's always that kitchen guy who likes to look at the ladies a little too long but that's a kitchen guy for you lol.
the food and service was very good. The menu changes with the seasons.
Went with my kids. They loved the food, even thought it wasn’t “kid food,” which made me really happy. I loved the flavorful vegetarian options. Will definitely be back!!
I can ALWAYS count on having a memorable, spectacular meal. But remember to call for reservations, so you won't have to wait or be disappointed!
really good ambience and easy to talk. clams were delicious and all the food was good. i'll be back
The food was very good but the seating was tight. Sure, I was looking for an intimate destination, but I was not intending it to be with the strangers next to me.
This was our 2nd visit. Had a nice conversation with the couple at the next table. We each ordered one of the March Restaurant specials offered - which worked because we always eat 'family style' and tried everything that came with each of the 3 course meals. WOW! Very nice cocktails as well. Good pictures on the wall of the history of the building. The wait staff were in the groove.
Thanks for a great dinner!
We stopped in before a concert. They accommodated a quick service with great food, I wish it were more convenient for us to return, I would definitely make it a regular for me.
We arrived in time to have a variety of happy hour items. I think we probably ordered all of the items on the menu and they competed to be most delicious!
Great food and dining experience for a Birthday celebration with friends.
An old standby for me and the Mrs. Great ambience, authentic & reliable dishes, and wonderful craft cocktails. I'm not a wine drinker most of the time, but I'm sure I'd be even more enthusiastic if I were. Thanks again, guys, for a great dining experience!
Very informed and courteous wait staff. Loved the food - tasted authentic Italian. Will not hesitate to dine at Firehouse again.
Had hanger steak and beef brisket pasta. Both very good. The faux Caesar Salad is great. Space between tables is lacking. No privacy.
The food came so fast that we were served and done with the bill in under 40 mins.. which was a little short for our date night.. but was nice
We didn’t get our open table points for this restaurant.
Beautiful location in the old Dekum St. Firehouse. Décor was cozy and fun and the food was delicious! Meatballs were the best we've had and the wood fired margherita pizza was excellent! Wish we lived closer so we could dine there more often!
We tried The Firehouse Restaurant for the first time with the Portland Dining Month special menu/pricing. We were also able to take advantage of the happy hour drink pricing between 5 and 6. Every morsel of food was divine, and the service was wonderful. The special menu allowed for two choices for the entree and appetizer, which not many do. Both the cavatelli pasta dish and the pizza were outstanding. The Italian olive oil cake was so good. We added the steamed clam appetizer, which was also to die for, though we didn't need all that food! The restaurant is about 20 minutes north of us, with lots of options we like closer, but we will definitely make the trip to eat here again and again. Can't wait to try the patio in the summer!
As delicious as always. The new pot de creme was disappointing...we so enjoyed the previous version with caramel, nuts and whip cream. Everything else was SO GOOD!
The Firehouse is in my neighborhood, but I hadn't been in years. We requested to sit at the bar which only has 4 chairs and we were gladly saved two spot. Bartender and staff we're warm and friendly. Since it's an open kitchen, we enjoyed seeing the dishes prepared. And even though our food was delicious, we were salivating at the beautiful and plentiful dishes assembled. Everything about our dinner at Firehouse was exceptional.
First time here and I ordered from the Portland dining menu. I really enjoyed The bruschetta and cavatelli. We also ordered wood-oven baked meatballs and a pepperoni pizza. Everything was very delicious. Would definitely come back!
We went because it was close to a concert venue, and sounded interesting. What a treat. Our food was incredible, from the roasted cauliflower, to the really great salad, to a phenomenal pasta and a perfect pizza. Our server, Luna, was sweet, efficient, and had a wicked sense of humor. We loved her!
We will be back very soon.
One of my favorite restaurants! The server was so well versed in recommending vegan and gluten free options, and very professional yet easy going and genuine. The food is always fabulous! Two of us ordered the wood fired pizza, delicious blend of flavors and perfectly browned crust. My swordfish was cooked to perfection. The Coat and Tails cocktail is fabulous!
Hostess had attitude when being seated regarding asking for a different table. She said the table we asked for was going to turn into a 4 person table, while we there it remained a two person table.
Portions were extremely small for the size of an entree and very $$.food was just okay...
First visit and it was wonderful. Our server was awesome and the food was delicious! We took our server's suggestion and ordered family style, which was perfect. With definitely be back.
The selection was fresh but with some of the good stand bys they have always had. Food was excellent and the staff was helpful and friendly.
I love coming here. The menu seems to slowly evolve, favorites lingering, new things popping up. I'm never disappointed. And the wait staff is always great. Love the pizzas. Love the chicken. The cauliflower! The ambiance. Solid.
