    We dined here for our anniversary. We were greeted and the host wished us a happy anniversary upon arriving . The service was outstanding. The food was incredible and our waitress was on top of everything. We ordered the steak & chef special which was the seared Ahi tuna . The steak was the tastiest steak I’ve had in a long time . The ahi was delicious . Our overall experience at the firehouse was great.

    Second time dinning here. Arrived about 15 minutes prior to our reservation and they were able to seat us early. We used the valet which was easy and a good deal at $5 if you were eating at the restaurant. We ordered the asparagus and burrata salad, the firehouse trio appetizer, the filet, ribeye and the fish special. Salad was fresh and the burrata creamy. The trio is is good, the pork belly was my favorite. Steaks were cooked perfectly; tender, buttery and the right amount of salt. They were served with potatoes and green beans. We sat inside and it can get noisy. Overall this is an excellent restaurant and next time we plan to have a drink at the bar.

    We were seated outside as requested and the weather was perfect. There was a noisy compressor or something similar outside the grounds that wasn't pleasant but can't pin that on the restaurant. Service was great. I had a prime cut ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed it. My son had the same and was equally happy. My wife found her halibut a bit dry.

    Disappointing. The salad, which was shaved asparagus and burrata was extremely bland. The polenta that came with the halibut had no flavor. Finally, the dessert, had the most tart apples, so it wasn’t even eatable. We’ve eaten here numerous times, but after this meal I do not think we will be back.

    The DRY-AGED CENTER-CUT PRIME RIB-EYE STEAK, SEARED ALASKAN HALIBUT, DOUBLE-CUT LOCAL BRINED PORK CHOP, and the Sable Fish special were excellent. MARY’S ROASTED HALF CHICKEN was a bit underwhelming and the SPRING TAGLIOLINI PASTA was quite starchy and thick consistency. The HALF-DOZEN SEASONAL OYSTERS were the size of a penny coin, not worth $26. The CHOCOLATE PAVÉ GÂTEAU and GRAND MARNIER SOUFFLÉ were outstanding, the APPLE CRUMB “CAKE” not so much!!

    chose restaurant because of chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. Found out that with was not available at this time. Website should be updated to reflect that this dining option is not available. Pasta Carbonara was a bit too salty, duck portion of dinner was excellent. Waiter overheard that it was our 40th Wedding anniversary and provided a complimentary desert, which we very much appreciated. Steve & Dianna Kerek

    We chose the Firehouse to celebrate my friend’s birthday because of its reputation as one of the best restaurants in Sacramento. It is is an elegant restaurant with an exquisite menu. We were greeted as soon as we opened the door and were seated immediately. Our portions were generous and tasty and prepared according to our wishes The servers were attentive, making sure that everything was up to our expectations. If you are looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, consider first the Firehouse.
