Firehouse Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I booked Firehouse because they had a reservation for 6 people available on a Saturday night and I am glad that I did. We had prompt, friendly service and good food. It was busy, but we could easily hear each other when we chatted. The pizza was good, but a little soggy in the middle.
There were four of us for dinner and our first time at The Firehouse. A very cozy and comfortable restaurant. We all ordered something different and loved our dinners. I had a delicious Caesar salad and pizza. Probably one of the best pizzas I have ever had. We all would definitely go back again!
We have chosen the Firehouse for many occasions and never have we been disappointed. Their food is amazing, and the wait staff actually enjoy their job and it shows with the customer service (with just the right amount of attention - never hovering or visiting too many times). We recommend it highly and will be returning soon.
The dinner was a special Christmas date with a very special person. I had asked if I could drop off flowers and the gift and the lady I talked to was super sweet and accommodating. I wish I could remember her name because she helped make an already special night even more special!!!! My date was super surprised and impressed and it made for an incredible date. The dinner was delicious and the staff couldn’t have been more attentive and pleasant!! Thank you all!!!!🙌🙌🙌
We had a lovely dinner. My husband tried the bone marrow and loved it. I had my usual marguerite pizza and it was great. I love that they serve it with scissors...it's so easy to cut the pieces that way! Firehouse is always a good bet for dinner. In nice weather we take our dogs and enjoy eating outside.
This is our favorite go-to neighborhood restaurant. Service is always good and gracious no matter how crowded it is. We love the wood-fired pizzas. This last time we tried the bone marrow which was awesome and also a side of broccolini with a lemony cream sauce which was delicious.
It's been years since outlast visit to the Firehouse. They are still as good as we remembered. After being seated and looking at the menu, we decided that 2 small plates and a pizza would make for a great dinner. BUT it was so hard to choose the 2 small plates... we've had the meatballs before and the fried cauliflower is a must order. After some pondering we opted for the fried cauliflower and the iron skillet mussels and chose to split a kale salad. Our choice of pizza was simple, fennel sausage. All of the food came out as expected and the table service was excellent. The feel of the Firehouse was warm and comfy. There was noise from the kitchen action, but it was not so loud that it required a raised voice in order to hear one another in conversation. We finished off with dessert... zeppole with chocolate ice cream... nummy.
Always grateful when we pick the firehouse, service is always over the top. Most times when I revisit a restaurant there is always one thing I look forward to ordering... at the firehouse it’s always hard to decide which wonderful thing I am going to order this time.
It had been years since I'd been to Firehouse. I didn't remember having an amazing experience there years ago, but on a Friday night with no plans and openings on Open Table, I figured I'd give it a shot.
The restaurant was busy and we were seated in a corner. We were initially delighted to have our starters come out so fast (we were starving) - even before our wine came out (we ordered a bottle of Mouvedre that I love). Our waiter came with the bottle and poured and I immediately knew something was off - the wine tasted sour and acidic. The waiter exclaimed it must be a bad bottle but didn't offer to bring a second. It was a bit awkward really. The food was ok, but the whole experience was just sort of....off.
We would definitely go back. Good service from start to finish. We were seated upon arrival. Our wait person did a good job explaining the food choices on the menu. We all ordered something different and we all were pleased with our choices. The meatballs were delicious.
This restaurant has recently gained a high rating from the local newspaper for "best pizza in Portland". Tghs is our third visit and each time the pizza has been top notch. This visit was even better than the past. The romaine salad and margherita pizza are homeruns.
The food was so incredibly delicious! We ordered the artichoke as an appetizer- amazing. I got the hangar steak and my husband got the salmon. We were both very happy with our meal. I have been to firehouse 4 times and gotten the hangar steak each time. Each time it is slightly different from the previous time so I never feel like I am ordering the same thing. For dessert we got the ricotta doughnuts. I have never tasted a doughnut that delicious. We shared the plate but wished we each had our own!! Come to firehouse, you will not be disappointed.
We made it in time for a lovely happy hour outside as the sun set. We ordered one of everything except the salami pizza. Cauliflower was fantastic and the meatballs are still as amazing as the first time we had them a year ago. This was our first time getting a pizza and the margherita hit the spot, including excellent crust that wasn't tough or too done. Yum! Wish this was a little closer to home so we could go more often.
