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.

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

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.

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.

Went there for birthday brunch. It was a great experience, but the waitress was less than attentive. Overall, a great time though.
