Awesome- outdoor patio
Sat in sun! Very uncomfortable for our group. Other than that it was nice
Our server, Bruno, was genuinely friendly, attentive, and patient. There were two other staff members who were also great and stepped in to help, but we didn’t get their names. Even with his mask on, Bruno’s positive energy radiated through. A dose of Bruno, ocean air, and good food is exactly what we needed! Thank you! (Everything was clean, physical distancing was in place, and people were wearing their masks if they had to move from their tables.)
The staff at the door and security guards were impolite. They seemed indifferent about theit costumers. They sat us on a couch with no table to eat food on except for a small “log” that’s used for sitting more than anything else. The food was at best mediocre but the potions were pretty big. During our stay, a fight broke out with one of the security guards and the security guard acted unprofessional and had to be held back while holding an object. If you’re looking for a calm lunch spot, this is not for you. We learned that the hard way. This place is for those who enjoy getting drunk and rowdy. Never coming back here.
I booked a reservation specific
The food was great, but the table where they sat us was too low for us to eat, which made eating awkward.
good food nice people clean good safety keeping people separated
Ordered lettuce cups and they came with cucumber (not on menu) and partner is allergic. Told the waitress and she brought us a new one that still had cucumber mixed in with the celery. We aren’t just being picky, it’s an allergy. Partner didn’t want to make a scene, so we just went on with our dinner. But we shouldn’t have to send a dish back for a 3rd time.
Thanks you for upgrading our table!!
Had a great brunch, the service was fantastic (I wish I remember the waiter's name - He said he was from Brazil!). All around great experience
Have been here a lot in the past, having always enjoyed it, food, service, ambiance. Chose it last Saturday night since nephew and great nieces were in town, staying in Mission Beach, and thought this would work out well. Made reservations, everything seemed good, until we got seated and realized that the music volume was not going to change - it was practically ear splitting. The DJ was having a wonderful time dancing in place. We asked the waiter if he had any pull in reducing the volume somewhat. I looked around and everyone who wanted to be heard in their party, had to shout. Seemed like the music may have been a way of promoting the place to passerbys. Made for a less than satisfactory experience however for diners.
Old folks don't enjoy loud music
Always a great vibe here and always great music. With and without a DJ!
Terrible cocktails, poor service and way too loud, who has a DJ in the middle of the resteraunt when people are trying to chat, very bad experience
Sat in a booth, no table to put food on. Waiter stopped by once when we were done. Social distancing for people that didn’t sit together.
Food really good
It was spectacular wonderful drinks and service
Great service, food, and atmosphere!
Very nice especially the seating with the view of the beach. Staff was extremely nice while adhering to current health guidelines. Will definitely be coming back here again!
Very good service and food. Staff took care on practicing new rules pertaining to pandemic.
Good food and excellent service. My burger was nicely seasoned and cooked medium rare like I requested. Staff was friendly.
We had reservations yet we were placed at the bar. That was a little disappointing but we had a great bartender and he made it worth it.
I was really excited to dine at Firehouse for my husband & I's first time dining out since the shelter in place order was given. We always had such good times are Firehouse with the ambience, food, and music (we even had our engagement party there!), so we were so excited to go back. However, when we were seated for this reservation, they didn't even seat us at a table, but rather their waiting area by the fireplace. We planned to eat a meal there, not just have drinks, so when we asked to be moved they said they had no seats. It was so disappointing they couldn't accommodate us to a table, even when I had a reservation. We didn't want to sit on a couch and eat dinner, so we opted to leave that night. I am so bummed because Firehouse is always so good.
Thank you to Brittany at Firehouse for great bar service and delicious drinks. The brunch was amazing, too. This was our first dine-out outing after the “reopening” and we chose Firehouse in PB because we enjoyed ordering food and drink to-go during the shut down. Thank you Firehouse for being so great!!
Great job preparing for social distancing, as far as I could see employees were following guidelines. The actual patrons were not as much, but it is PB. Food was great, mimosas delicious. Will come again.
Firehouse is one of the best spots for eating, as well as raging, in Pacific Beach. Jenny and Amelia always giving the best and most friendly service. Definitely a place worth checking out.
This is great for a night out with friends. I came here with fun for-workers. However, we are all different ages and it may have been
We were visiting San Diego and picked this place out from an online map view of the area. Waiter was wonderful, he let us move to the “fire” table when it was vacated by other guests. Food superb.
This is really a bar with a dance floor that happens to serve some food. If you are looking to dine out, then you should go elsewhere. The food is ordinary bar fare.
Hadn’t been there in 20 years! Still very good food with great service! Went for brunch - Would love to have sat outside w/ a view :(
inside was quiet, cavelike and felt like I was in a club. And the television was acting weird so we couldn’t even watch sports. But overall good and will go back
I've eaten here various times and have never had a bad meal.
We had dinner at this place on a Saturday evening. Great atmosphere, good service, very good food and wine.
My only observation is the fact that they DO NOT have any type of cognac at the bar. Other than that I highly recommend it.
Was pleasantly surprised by the free valet service at the door. Our server was great and the food was very good!
What a great place to sit and enjoy the weather. Great dining experience!! Food was outstanding and service was excellent.
Ordered drinks and coffee. Coffee cake out after food. Asked for hot sauce. Never came. Had to walk up to the bar to get the check. Have gone for both dinner and now brunch and similar experiences both times. Bill is way too expensive for the level of service offered.
Had an awesome time with a very large party. Firehouse was able to fill my reservation for 21 people in a heartbeat.
Service was slow and food was subpar. Reserved a table for the rooftop but got seated inside in poor location.
Loved our server Tim!!! So so nice and accommodating
Extremely slow service, drinks made incorrectly and food was not very good.
There was a mix up with our reservation and they were super busy, but they made accommodations very fast. Great food and atmosphere, love this place!
Went there for birthday brunch. It was a great experience, but the waitress was less than attentive. Overall, a great time though.
