The Firehouse Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable lunch. Wife is currently on crutches so the valet parking was a real plus for $5! Every contact with the employees was outstanding and the food recommendations by the wait staff was perfect. Extensive and reasonably priced wine list. We will be back soon.
I made reservations for three of us (all out of state friends) and this was our second visit to the restaurant. This visit was just as great as the first and we were not disappointed. Great ambiance, great bar for pre-dinner drinks, great menu selections and great service. So, I guess it is all just great. One of the largest wine menus around and the prices are not outrageous. Our waiter, Howard, was awesome and made several sound recommendations for appetizers and entree choices. I would recommend that you also use the front door valet parking, it is very convenient and they give you a code for your phone and your car is ready within 3-minutes of requesting it to leave. We are already booked to return again in August
Our first time dining at the Firehouse Restaurant. It was a very elegant experience for our second anniversary. The lamb dish was to die for. My husband had the scallops special, they were very plump and tender. We will definitely return for a future visit. Thank you Firehouse staff for your attentiveness, knowledge of your food offerings, and the beautiful ambience and decor.

We have been to the Firehouse many times before, normally we have an amazing experience. This round it was just okay. We came for our 22nd anniversary. We had already looked at the menu before we came out and decided we would like the chef's tasting menu. However, when we got there, they were not offering it. We found out they do not offer it on "busy nights" but would check to see if they could accommodate us, in which they could, so in that regard, we were pleased. Our waiter was fine but very impersonal and did not seem like he could be bothered for idle chit chat. This is a fine dining institution, if you cannot be personable to your patron's then why not just be a Chili's? As far as the food, here it was really good, up until the third course, where I had 2 really large bones that I found in my fish, again their food is not cheap, and this was unexpected, the fish was delicious and I informed our waiter of bones, but no offer to make it right with me at all, but oh well, guess that is not the world we live in anymore. The evening could have been much nicer with just a little more attentive service but instead it was just okay, and expensive for just okay...
The Firehouse Restaurant is absolutely a wonderful place to dine. This was my wife and my 36th yesr anniversary and we choose to dine here based on prior experience. The service is exquisite and the food is excellent. The before dinner drinks were stout and well worth the money. The overall ambiance was superb and we will definitely dine again in the future.
First night out for my wife and I since we had our new baby, so it was a bit of a celebration our server was very friendly unfortunately I'm horrible with names. I ordered the lamb as my entree was one of the best lamb racks I've ever had perfect medium my wife had the delmonico was very flavorful. I can't say anything bad about the place it was just what I was looking for kudos .. I will be back again soon . Ramsey tamayo
Delicious meal. Watercress and pea soup. Friend and I had different sandwiches. I had the portabello mushroom sandwich with delicious fries. Would totally recommend others to patronize restaurant, and even recommend the open-faced ahi tuna sandwich.
However, I would also advise NOT to order the coffee there. Save your $ and go elsewhere. I got a double shot of espresso. Asked for cup of ice separately. Came combined and the worst cup of coffee. Should have sent back. How can you get a double shot of espresso wrong? Bitter, acidic -- tasted old. Did they just fake it? Had to ask for cream. (waiter didn't even bring a spoon.) Then asked for a spoon, then more sugar. But nope still couldn't swallow it. $4. worst part of the experience. I could have had a better experience even at Starbucks for $2.50. Whoever made the coffee did a disservice to the restaurant. Would have been a perfect experience otherwise.
We took my aunt to lunch to celebrate her 99th birthday. The staff was friendly and efficient, from the time we arrived at valet parking until we walked out the door. Our server and other staff members took the time to engage her in conversation, and she commented that she would love to come back next year to celebrate her 100th! The patio was idyllic and the food as delicious as it always is. We are grateful to everyone at The Firehouse for making her birthday such a special experience.
The Firehouse tops the charts in all aspects. First, it is an absolutely gorgeous and romantic restaurant. The main dining room is adorned with huge paintings and five gold-leaf mirrors and contains a fireplace. Second, the black-napkin place settings and service were topnotch. Our server, Sean, was very friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable about the food and wine and was very helpful with recommendations. And, of course, the main event, the food, was also exceptional. Entrees of roasted loin of venison and Maple Leaf Farms duckling were delicious. There is a huge wine list with a number of reasonably priced selections and a nice list of specialty cocktails. The location is great in Old Sacramento, very near the world-class railroad museum. Street parking is available as well as nearby parking garages.
Celebrated my birthday with my wife for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere was wonderful and the professionalism of the staff was exceptional. The presentation of 4 course dinner was top drawer. The pairing of tasty wine with each entree was delicious.
I highly recommend the Firehouse Restaurant, you will not be disappointed.
