    We come here every year on our anniversary. We had our wedding reception here. The wait staff are all very professional and make you feel comfortable from the moment you sit down. The food is probably the best we have had in Sacramento. The drinks were also done well. My only complaint is that we go here early to have a drink before dinner. This year we went on Friday and there was no place to sit at the bar and they don't seem to serve at the tables surrounding the bar. I stood at the bar for a good 5 minutes before the first person approached me to see if I wanted a drink. Normally we go during the week and that isn't an issue.

    We have a joke in our family that the seasonal vegetable at firehouse is always green beans. So, that’s a bummer. The chicken saltimboca was not good. However, the steak and pork were awesome. Bread and salad and soup also awesome. Amanda was divine.

    My wife and I decided to celibrate our 50th wedding anniversary at The Firehouse. The staff were very helpful and friendly while still maintaining a high level of professionalism. The wait time for food to be served after being ordered was tolerable, no long waits. The food itself was excellent . The meat was tender and the sauces a prefect complement. Dessert was a delight. The final accolade goes to the price. When the bill was presented both my wife and I were plesantly surprised. All in all a wonderful evening leaving us happy that we had chosen The Firehouse.

    The food was marginal, although they did bring a vegan dish for one of our friends that was very good. They treated us well and provided a birthday dessert for another of our friends. The food has been better in our previous experiences.

    My family celebrated my father-in-law’s 85th birthday at the Firehouse last night and it was amazing! The whole experience was wonderful and my father-in-law throughly enjoyed the experience and food/drinks. They gave him a crème brûlée on the house with happy birthday written out. I have never been disappointed with anything I ordered from here.

    We were a group of 8 and needed to dine quickly as we were attending a concert at 7PM. We let the server know and she was very accommodating and kept us right on point. Dinner was excellent - drinks were cold and delicious. We enjoyed our dinners and appreciate the staff's assistance in getting us to the show on time. Thank You! Jerry

    Everything was great,drinks,food service but for 2 things: It was hard to hear sometimes because of the noise level.But yet again, it was the night before Valentines Day. We ordered 2 appetizers. One was warm,the other cold. They brought the warm one first , waited for some time, reminded the waiter, and waited another 15 minutes. We sent the second appetizer back. Told the waiter he should have kept the warm back and serve both when the cold one was ready.

    Unfortunately this place has become dated. Though Historic the upkeep for simple things such as dusting, cleaning of cobwebs, or the many mirrors shows that little care is shown. Both steaks were undercooked. One slightly but one was served beyond rare. They took it back to fix but really only just served it again rare with more charr. Vegetables were bland and undercooked as well. Salads.. Caesar and the beet salad were just ok. For a dinner priced in the 250-300 range at a minimum, would expect a lot more.

    Our date night and first-time dining at Firehouse. I guess my expectations were too high OR this restaurant is way overrated. The waiter was not very attentive and seemed rushed. There was a large table of about 6-7 people next to us who were pretty loud, and our waiter seem more attentive to that table...I could only guess why? The appetizers were meh. I've certainly had better carpaccio at other fine restaurants in Sac but in all fairness, the beet salad was decent. The entrees, I had the sea bass (a sliver of a piece), and my wife, the pork chop was just ok, not what I expected from a 4 1/2-star restaurant and pricing. Everything took long to be brought to our table...and best thing of the night was the cocktail.
