Firehouse Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I love this restaurant. Service was excellent, friendly, fast, knowledgeable. Menu variety short but plenty to satisfy your needs no matter the occasion. Pizza, Chicken, Fish, Beef. High quality food without breaking the bank. I love the ambience. Music in the back round and not so noisy as to be hard to carry on a conversation without shouting.
Friends from out of town visiting, they were late getting us to our table, we arrived 10 minutes early. The hostess just had a surly attitude & was generally unpleasant, she needs a job that doesn’t include dealing with customers.
Our server and meals were fantastic!!
I wanted to like it so much! It's close to where I live and would be an easy place to grab dinner, but the food was just middling, although we enjoyed the wine selection. The artichoke was grilled and smokey, obscuring the delicate flavor. The pot de creme was like glue. There was hardly anyone in the place on Wednesday evening which makes me think I'm not the only one giving a bad review.
Pizza was better than ever, especially if you skip the olive oil on top. The chicken dish had great flavor and was well cooked but where were the gnocchi and chard sides? There were only like 2 bites. Should go back to the old plating system and restore the sides!!!!
We had a fantastic server who took care of us even when one of us spilled our glass of wine and provided us with another glass of wine and complements to my meal which got a little wine soaked! I enjoyed the atmosphere but would have preferred the music to not have been as loud so I could hear my friends speaking a little bit better.
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.
