The food is horrible. Service and ambience was good. It is a nice and quiet place. I was there for the food, and the food is the worst part. I never had such bad quality of food for dinner.

We have been to The Firehouse many times, and it has always been good. We decided to have Thanksgiving Dinner there this year. It was expensive, but we thought reasonable for the holiday. Then we were seated in a drafty annex room, at a huge table for our small group, and seemingly forgotten. For most of the meal we were the only ones in this cavernous room. The wait staff got one of the meals wrong, and then could not wait to take your plates when you set your fork down for more than 30 seconds, even while others were still eating. The food was good, but it was not $100 per person good.

Hi Kevin, we're sorry that you didn't enjoy the Golden Eagle Room & that the service seemed hurried. We chose that room for you so your family could enjoy more space. We had staff assigned to that room specifically & will look into why you felt forgotten. In the system, it looks like there were 9 other tables sat in the room over the period you were dining. The food was $64.95/person, which is in line w/ other menu pricing in the area. Again, we’re sorry you did not have a better experience.

Our first time eating out for Thanksgiving. Such a beautiful place, and a tasty Thanksgiving meal. My daughter ordered the turkey with fixings, which was amazing, and just the right size. I ordered butternut squash ravioli, which was delicious, but was not a serving size equivalent to the cost of the meal. The salad and dessert were wonderful, and the service was amazing.

Made a reservation with Firehouse for our anniversary dinner. The ambiance was romantic and service was outstanding. However, while the food was good, I was very disappointed in the presentation, delivery, and quality. The food was tasty and clearly well prepared, but every dish was delivered messy and room temperature to cold. Not a single dish was hot or felt fresh. The sides such as the potatoes and risotto had sat for so long in a warmer that they were over cooked and starting to settle. The Chateaubriand, while again very tasty, was obviously sous vide instead of roasted completely changing the texture and flavor and it was not served and sliced table-side as stated on the menu. The reason I said messy about the dishes is that they weren't delivered carefully to the table and the clean presentation prepared by the kitchen, never made it to the table. Overall I recommend this restaurant; however, I feel like the effort put forth in the kitchen never made it to the table - and that was disappointing. To the service staff - you were all outstanding.

Wonderful Birthday Party dinner at the Firehouse for our friend's 95th Birthday. The food, service, and ambiance were all excellent and all the wait staff were polite and attentive to our every request. The lamb, scallops and salads were delicious! The Birthday Girl remembers going here for dinner with her girlfriends when she was young. She was absolutely delighted that we took her here for her Birthday. Thanks for a memorable evening!

My husband and I were there for our 10th anniversary, and what a good choice it was! The food was outstanding, the portion sizes were generous, and we received excellent and very friendly service and even had our picture taken! This was a fantastic place that we will recommend and will come back to in the future! Thank you for making our 10th such a special evening!

We took our son for his birthday and had an excellent experience. The ambiance was elegant but comfortable and the waitstaff was professional but charming and funny. The lamb was beyond delicious and the seared scallops were my favorite. They have so many fabulous wines to choose from. We'll be back.

Fair lunch in the courtyard. Pleasant, scenic ambiance. My wife enjoyed the Prix fix menu. She thoroughly loved the spinach salad, followed by the salmon. The pear tart to finish she said was okay. Service was friendly, good, and attentive.

Pleasant dinner tonight. Started with the crab cake, followed by the filet Mignon. Perfectly cooked with a nice little char. My wife enjoyed the vegetable Wellington. Finished with an excellent Grand Marnier soufflé. Phenomenal wine list. Service was attentive and friendly. Only aspect that could be improved upon would be their bread. Thoroughly unremarkable!

Very nice, upscale restaurant in Old Town Sacramento. We went there for our Anniversary. I was happy that they had non-meat choices. I had their vegetable Wellington, which was excellent. My husband had their filet mignon, which he said had excellent flavor.

A great place to get some really great food and some marvelous wines, with a wine and wait staff that is so knowledgeable and above reproach. I so enjoy trying new foods and wines when I go based on their changing menu and wine selections. A great place for an intimate dinner.

Good service, very good salads and main courses, but very expensive and undoubtedly the WORST bread ever provided by a restaurant. I mean, it was inedible: stale, tasteless, gross. Take a second mortgage out.

Hi Ron, we're sorry you didn't enjoy your bread. Thank you for letting us know, and we will be sure to address that. If you're interested in a more value-centric experience we'd recommend visiting us again during lunch (M-F 11:30am-2:30pm) or happy hour which is served weekdays from 2:30-6:00pm. We're glad you enjoyed the rest of your meal, and thank you for your review.
