Been meaning to visit the Firehouse Restaurant for a while and finally got the opportunity.
The ambiance was great, the service was outstanding, and the food was amazing!
Our entrees included the pork chop and the filet. Will definitely be back again in the future and would highly recommend it to friends and family.

As alway, the device was welcoming and excellent. We were celebrating a special birthday, and my friend certainly felt like a queen! Our food was delicious, and was cooked just as I needed for my dietary issues. Our server repeated what I asked for and it came out perfectly. The only thing that I noticed with the bill was the extra charge for our choice of meat on our spinach salads. I may have misread it, but I thought the menu said, “With your choice of chicken, salmon, or steak.” I do not recall seeing the additional charge listed on the lunch menu for the additions. I did not question it as I did not want to make our guest uncomfortable. It may have been my mistake.
We will return for another delicious, relaxing meal.

Jeremiah was a perfect server. The food was great! Wine selection under $100 a bottle (my range) was decent. Truffle gnocchi was an awakening. Great dish!

The whole place and the staff are very pretentious. There were waiters and hosts basically talking to each other and ignored the guests. We were directed to the host/hostess stand by first the bartender and then later we were directed to speak to the hostess by the Mitre,d' who was standing rifht next to the hostess, it was actually a bit silly. This is a restaurant that thinks it's better than it is! It has a great reputation and trades on that, but it is NOT as good as it's reputation suggests!
The ambiance/atmosphere was very nice. The room was tall with many mirrors making it seem large.
The food was only fair and the service worse, and it costs as though it were a wonderful "world class" restaurant and it is NOT! The amuse busch was the best part of the meal and it was tastless! A rice ball (arroncinni) completely underseasoned on a tiny spot of marinara which was also tasteless!
The porkbelley (the appetizer) was fair but over done and then the chicken breast was awfull! It was under seasoned and the skin was flabby and tasted off and threw the whole taste of the meal off. The carrots needed to be cut with a chain saw, they were that poorly cooked! The chicken below the skin (which had be removed) was dry and unappetizing. A lobster tail which was served to a table a distance away smelled so fishy that we could smell it at a different table. It couldn't have been good. No one in the restaurant was exclaiming about how much they enjoyed thier food! We decided against dessert as we were sure we would be dissapointed! I would never recommend this to a friend nor would I return! The wine was again pretentiously over priced too. Way too much money for a poor meal! Problems on both the front and the back end of the restaurant!!!!

The day we met seven years ago started with a visit to the Crocker; since we were clicking it continued to wine at the Firehouse Bar; still going well, we stayed for dinner! Seven years later we are still going strong. We had s lovely anniversary dinner at the same table we shared on our first date.

Very Disappointing... We had the sea bass with garlic spinach and the duck with yams and red cabbage. There was too much uncooked garlic with the spinach and the red cabbage made with vinegar didn't go well with the duck with orange demi glacé.

The Firehouse is white cloth so plan attire and money accordingly. The service is top notch. The food was decent, but pricing is difficult to justify with such small portions. Our server brought a birthday dessert after I made a note of it on our reservation which I thought was very nice.

Service was excellent. However, maybe due to it being a Monday night, the lamb and the filet mignon was lacking flavor. Dessert was excellent and the brussel sprouts. Tried the filet mignon the next day hoping my taste buds we're in better shape but it still had no flavor. Overall we had a terrific time.
Thanks

Came here for a b-day celebration with my husband and we had a great time. Our servers were very tentative, the food was amazing, and they provided him with a b-day dessert to top it all off. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this restaurant.

-pork belly to share (delicious)
-heart of palm salad to share (good, standard)
-prime cut filet of beef (delicious)
-salmon on gnocchi special (good)
-cream brûlée to share (delicious)

The ambiance could be improved. What's missing most notably is music ! Lighting and decor could use a refresh as well. Cob web on the chandeliers is not exactly rustic ;)

This was a business dinner for 6, 4 who have never been to Sacramento. Firehouse in Old Sac was an ideal restaurant for this dinner. Terrific atmosphere, service, food, and one of the best wine lists that anyone at the table has seen. Thank you for contributing to a successful dinner and an enjoyable evening.

My first impression of this place was very positive. I loved the service and the ambiance was great. I only had one complaint if I would even call it that. The food was good but not outstanding. I ordered the appetizer and it was undercooked. Could have used 3 more minutes in the oven. Also the meal itself while delicious, was not worth the price I think. I have had much better elsewhere for a better price. That said it was enjoyable and I would go back.
