The Firehouse Restaurant
Our Go To Holiday PlaceWe generally save this restaurant for Holidays. The food choices are always a wonderful surprise. This is the "go to" place for excellent service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day at FirehouseWe had a great Mother's Day brunch at the venerable Firehouse. After a very tasty buffet "starter" we each ordered a plated entree. The service is superb and the patio setting was comfortable on a warm Sunday in Old Town.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM20 years later!We were married in the Courtyard 20 years ago and we had an especially wonderful anniversary dinner. The staff --including Mario, who had been in charge of our wedding details and is still here, was attentive,kind and knowledgeable. Food was great, each course more delicious than the last..but neither of us had ever had a filet prepared so well. It was amazing in both in preparation and in presentation, served over a fat patty of mashed potatoes, rolled in bread crumbs and then deep fried. Worth the calories! We don't go to the Firehouse often enough, the food is fantastic and worth the prices charged in our opinion, but to have such a special gem in Sacramento is a real treat and we will no doubt make more special memories here.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting MenuWe ordered the Tasting Menu with wine pairings and it was exceptional! We travel and eat out frequently. This was definitely memorable. The Firehouse never disappoints. While it is the perfect place for a special occasion, it is unfortunate that some of the clientele don't dress for one. They note dressy casual attire which shouldn't be that difficult to achieve.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed my dininingThoroughly enjoyed my dinining experience and would highly recomend this place to anyone looking for a great meal.

It's excellent for celebrating special occasions - and they go out of their way to prepare for you as well - for our anniversary they presented a nicely decorated dessert. For beef lovers, the Delmonico steak is a steak lover's delight (and unless you are a truly big eater you will take half of it home).4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWell trained staff make theWell trained staff make the evening...

It exceeded my expectations on every level. We enjoyed the wine tasting, and had an excellent meal. The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledable of the menu items. We live out of town, Merced, but will definately consider returning for another great experience.
Thank you-4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe setting was outstanding,The setting was outstanding, the food excellent, and the service on a par with the best.
The fact that the supervisor/manager (the guy in the jacket and tie) couldn't be bothered to come by our table and say hello (the restaurant wasn't busy) was sort of a minus. But, on our exit when he could not bring himself to tear away from the social conversation he was having with an unbusy server to thank us for coming was really disappointing. The best places use their managers to help assure quality food and service. The Firehouse was apparently giving their management a pass on this lunch. Following the example set for her the hostess, followed suit and said nothing as we passed by thus negating her excellent and warm greeting on our arrival.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMthe waiter was very good.the waiter was very good. food was very good. you need white zinfandel wine. thats one thing i did not like. i am not a wine person dark whateverl. it would be nice to have a glass of white zin with my food. everything else was very good. thank you for great service. rose gorton4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck with chili & chocolateDuck with chili & chocolate mole sauce and almond milk foam was the best I've ever eaten. Polenta was crisp on outside; creamy in the center. Broccoli rabe was delicious with butter. Complimentary poke ahi appetizer was excellent too. Mixed green salad great. A memorable evening starting with an assorted cheese plate and ending "too full" for dessert. We will definitely come again. Appreciated being able to use B Street Theatre coupon for 25% off our entrees. Thank you.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAt last, the old FirehouseAt last, the old Firehouse that I remember from years ago is back and better than ever! The lovely patio is now open and lunch was marvelous. Our server was delightful and not stuffy or formal. I'll definitely return many times during the summer. The Firehouse is truly one of Sacramento's top five restaurants.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food!Had a wonderful meal after attending their weekly wine tasting.

Top notch and first rate. Extremely and highly recommended.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meal at the FirehouseOur meal at the Firehouse was one of the best I've had. We were seated immediately and the waitstaff was incredibly attentive throughout the meal. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and accompanied by delicious potato croquette. My friend's pecan-crusted lamb was also cooked perfectly and very tasty. If you want the Grand Marnier Soufflé, order it early - worth the calories! Even the cocktails were delicious! Not an inexpensive meal, but worth every penny!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLike no where else in townWe have lunch here at least once a month and as always, we are treated like we own the place.

The restaurant has an old-fashioned coziness and charm--different from some of the kitschy tourist shops nearby in Sacramento's Old Town. Nice use of an actual Old Firehouse to create a beautiful dining space. The Delmonico steak and rack of lamb were superb. Deserts were TDF (to die for). The service was hospitable and excellent. The vast wine list offers a world of great choices. We will be sure to dine here again on our next trip to Sacramento.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to the restaurant, the first being lunch, and it was great. Well prepared and tasty food, attention to detail, a nice, though large, space, and friendly service all add up to a great evening!12/28/2012 12:00:00 AMWe love the wine flights!We love the wine flights!
