Very quiet and intimate. Although the seating was outside and the weather was brisk the setting was warm with the heat lamps. Beautiful soft music and super friendly and attentive servers. Wonderful menu options and the food was delicious. Always the most tender chicken every time. We will be back. ♥️

Firehouse does not disappoint. The chef and his staff create the most delicious food, pairing of combinations of fish or meats with vegetables and spices that leave you wanting more! The wait staff is delightful to chat with. In this very difficult time, here is a group that hasn't quit to bring it's guests the best. Take a break from your routine, escape and spend an evening in the warmth of the tented, heat courtyard!

Great atmosphere. Maybe it's my refined pallet, but I felt that the food was slightly bland and not too savory which one would expect from a high-end restaurant. Don't get me wrong, the food was fresh, but it was not something that blew me out of the water. Some methodologies were off such as not chilled Creme Brule, or warm plates.

Took my partner for his birthday here. Wine was great. Waiters were super awesome. Disappointed by how long the food took to get to us. 30 min wait for the appetizers. Over an hour wait for the main dishes. The best part was the appetizers and the wine. Cesar salad was funky tasty. Only took a few bites and tossed the rest. Entrees took so long we just asked a waitress if we could have them to go. Would probably visit again but only for the wine and appetizers. Again the ambiance was great, our waitress was awesome and super friendly. Disappointed by some of the food and the wait time

Order the Filet or Scallops and save room for the Chocolate dessert.

Aside from being a bit slow, the service was outstanding. I loved that they kept the water flowing.

It was very cold inside, understandably because of patio seating and the pandemic but dress as if you were seated outdoors even if inside. Food was excellent. Service was great.

The Firehouse was amazing helping us celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary! We were seating in the perfect place. My dad mentioned several times that this was the first time that he could easily hear everyone at the table with his hearing aids. Usually in restaurants it is very difficult for him to hear companions speaking. Our waiter was wonderful, not over the top, but very personable and helpful, anticipating our needs and patient!! We requested an early seating, so the restaurant was very quiet for about an hour and a half before the noise level became more moderate. The salads and entrees were absolutely delicious, as always. The chef signed a menu for my parents and sent a complementary dessert. Many thanks to The Firehouse for helping with a fantastic and memorable celebration!!

Both who had the sea bass said it was superb. The rack of lamb was served rare instead of Ned rare as ordered, but was very tasty. The rib eye wasn’t as juicy as expected. Wine list was limited compared to a year ago.

This was one of the best meals we have had in recent memory. The courtyard garden feels very safe, and the waitress was always masked. We had the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings and had to take food home, it was so much. The fois fras was perfectly seared and melt in your mouth buttery. We joined the wine club and can’t wait until our next visit back. Excellent!!

It is my second time in Firehouse and I don't know if it was due to covid or what, but service was horrible. After we ordered we only saw our server 2x I think. And one of those was to bring us our check. At an upscale restaurant I don't expect to have to flag people down to get pepper for out meal or bread. I'm usually having to tell servers that we a re good and done need anything, bit that definitely wasn't the case this time. I've had much better service at Applebee's. And my check wasn't $200. Very disappointed.

This was our first visit to the Firehouse, celebrating a birthday. I couldn't have enjoyed it more. The service was five star, food five star and ambience, five star!

All around great environment, we were socially distant from other tables, we felt very safe! Servers were all quite impeccable.

The Duck appetizer was our favorite along with Asparagus Soup! Wow, what a menu!

We felt very special the entire time we were there and got to enjoy the rich beauty of the historic building itself.

I can't wait to return to the Firehouse Steakhouse!
