    In our party we had several different dishes. The small plates really aren't very small. I had the special ribs which were excellent. A nice tangy sauce on perfectly cooked (fall of the bone but not dry) pork. The sea bass special was also great with a nice sauce.

    I arranged for a team meeting/lunch on your site at the Firehouse No. 1. I was looking forward to trying the location out. Your site set the appointment for 11;45am and even had an option for 11;30am. I arrived at the location at 11;30am to find it closed and the opening time, '4pm' clearly posted and could be seen from the street. Luckily, the Old Spaghetti Factory was open and we were able to have the meeting. I would love to recommend Firehouse No. 1 but if your site doesn't have the correct hours of operation for these establishments, I highly doubt I would recommend or use Open Table. This is unacceptable and hope you fix it.

    Pleasantly surprised by everything! Close to airport and open until 12am is a big plus when picking up travelers. Food was exceptionally delicious! Service and servers were warm and friendly even though understaffed. Love this place! We are planning future visits and for sure taking others and telling others about this place. You may need to expand😉

    This is the second time we have been here...and probably the last. They have a bit of an identity crisis - pub or restaurant? They don’t have enough variety of beers on draft to be a great pub, and their service has along way to go for them to be a restaurant. The beers they have are good (as long as you want an IPA). The food is very good. They are friendly, they try hard, but, for me anyway, they are not great at either style.

    I got the Bison burger and added blue cheese. The meat was good, bun was store bought and they gave me 5 onion rings. It was more of an appetizer than a meal and I ended up getting a chicken quesadilla from Chipotle because I was still hungry.

    With so many downtown choices, I would probably not recommend this place. Food was good, not fantastic or anything. Two major errors on our group's order & overall service was really bad. Waiter finally came by and when I tried to order a glass of wine off the happy hour, he said happy hour was over. This was at 5:31pm, Happy Hour ended at 5:30pm. So maybe if he paid attention to us for the 20 minutes prior, or told us when he delivered the first round when happy hour ended...that would have been nice. Sadly we will not be returning.

    Service was friendly, and they rushed to get our order before “happy hour” ended. However, they were out of the specific item that had been recommended to us. We had to rethink our order and it was difficult getting their attention again.

    Because it was such a hot day, I reserved an outside table. Unfortunately, there were a few show offs revving their cars and squealing tires. For me, this was not a problem, but it may be for others. The food was excellent, the service was great, and our waitress was very professional and personable. If you are craving a burger, which we were, I would highly recommend the traditional one. This was my first time at the Firehouse No. 1 Gastropub, and I will definitely come back! Reservations are very advisable.
