Came here to celebrate my niece’s 8th birthday. Service was great. They were attentive to our needs. The adults took advantage of the dine downtown menu and the food was amazing. Our server was able to get red sauce with my nephew’s pasta, even when it wasn’t on the menu. They also gave the kids their own desserts free of charge! And of course, a special creme brûlée for the birthday girl! Oh and their moscato was delicious! Will definitely come back for more!
We came for the Dine Downtown Event and it was amazing! It was my first time visiting the Firehouse and it was better than I imagined. We were seated in front of the fireplace and it felt so romantic. Our dinner was delicious and the wine was well paired! Cheers!
This was my 3rd visit to The Firehouse. This time, I went for Dine Downtown 2019. The service was impressive, and the food was delicious. I had the NY strip steak, and it was cooked perfectly. I asked for medium, and it pink throughout, and very juicy and flavorful. The chocolate mousse cake was a treat! It was a great finish to a very memorable meal.
We dined at the Firehouse during Dine Downtown Week. The food was wonderful. The restaurant was packed and the servers appeared to be a bit rushed, but all things considered the food and service were great. One thing we noticed that might have been improved was disproportional servings of wine. Several groups 30 something women diners, who also ordered wine flights with their Dine Downtown menu entrees, were served considerably more than 2 ounces per glass (it looked more like 4 ounces), while our table of 3 senior citizens was served wine flights with less than 2 ounce pours. One person in our group happened to have a shot glass in her purse to measure some medicine she needed to take. We measured the wine in one of our wine glasses. It was approximately a 1.6 ounce pour. Customers do notice when they are treated differently than others -- especially when the same server is serving all the tables in an area.
The food was perfect and great portions. The service was exceptional.
I always enjoy going to the Firehouse. It reminds me of when I was young and my first experience in finer dining.
Just a wonderful experience. Would come back again. The ambience was excellent. The service was great!
Really enjoyed my 1st visit to the Firehouse. I love that we could check our coats instead of having to keep them on our chairs. That was very classy. Food was excellent, in both presentation & preparation, everything cooked the way we asked. The service was wonderful, staff treated us so well. So glad they participated in Dine Downtown week & we got a chance to experience The Firehouse for a very reasonable cost. We'll be back!
Truly exceptional service, no two ways about it. Extensive wine list, but weak cocktails. Creative menu, executed with a flair for presentation. The wilted greens accompanying the salmon were, sadly, salty and overdone - though it is difficult to do such things well. Too, the smoked duck was practically indistinguishable from ham. But the steak was transcendent, as were the Brussels sprouts (too few!). And the chocolate ganache gateau was simply exquisite. The booths along the south wall are to be preferred, affording a modicum of privacy, something of a noise cancelling cocoon, and an excellent perch for observing one's fellow diners. Rather spendy venue, but fun for a special evening with that certain someone.
We had been here before. Still feels the same. The staff seems to think elegant means stuffy. Not a comfortable or friendly atmosphere. Our white wine was not cooled down enough. Gourmet salad was basically greens. We were seated in the dining room downstairs, and used the ladies room down there. Both toilets were clogged. One stall had overflow water on the floor. Very uncomfortable.
Expensive dining but well worth it! Definitely for special occasion unless money is not an issue I would dine here frequently. Staff was amazing! Food was amazing! I have absolutely no complaints. Valet parking boys were super helpful as well. Highly recommend eating here.
Great service and wonderful food!
Can't wait to dine at the Firehouse sooner rather than later.
The service was outstanding and it has a nice ambiance
Service was exceptional, Derrick had a great personality and good food and wine menu knowledge. The 6 oz lobster tail was served lukewarm with very flavorless drawn butter. However, the NY was extremely flavorful and cooked perfectly as well was the wild caught Salmon.
Fantastic experience and great food! Was able to get my preferred seat near the fireplace. Made my wife’s birthday extra special. Will be back soon!
great service & a very nice meal. it was an 'off night' so there wasn't a lot of distraction...made the night!
Good food, I had the salmon tacos! I would definitely recommend them. Comfortable seating. The ambiance was a little stuffy, but the restaurant was not too busy so it was possible to have conversations without a lot of background noise.
Service was outstanding. Very attentive. Food was very good. Atmosphere is elegant and comfortable.
The food was good, but not GREAT, nothing very special. Our rib eye tasted more like a filet, not what we were expecting. Being the most expensive item on the menu, you'd expect perfection. The wine list was almost to expansive. The service was excellent, but they really need to update the surroundings and become more relevant. Frank Sinatra, gilded picture frames and fake flowers....really? It just SCREAMS 1970's old men's club. Not my favorite.
But, they did give us a free creme brulee for our anniversary, which was nice.
It was my son’s birthday. We always love this restaurant. The food is beautifully presented and scrumptious to eat. The service is outstanding.
As with past experiences at the Fire House service and food was excellent.
My boyfriend and I have been here twice now and we have been pleased both times with just about everything. The Oysters are amazing, salads delicious and so far, the Duck, Scallops, Chicken and swordfish have been wonderful. They have a very extensive wine list and yummy cocktails. Their deserts are wonderful also!
The service is impeccable. My only complaint is the lighting, it’s just a little to romantically dim for me to read the menu!
Will be back again and again, even if I have to bring a little flashlight 😊
Over cooked steak and droped tray of crab for no special Food not done well at all
Jeremy is an excellent server. The spinach salad, Firehouse Trio and Clam Bisque were wonderful we ordered Pork, the Delmonico and lamb for main courses and were not disappointed
The Grand Manier Soufflé and cappuccino mouser were fantastic.
Darrell was and excellent server, he made our New year's experience unique, the ambiance and the place itself was perfect to celebrate.
Excellent food and service BUT we had to wait 45 minutes for our 8.15 table reservation as the restaurant was running late. I would have given 5 stars otherwise.
We love the Firehouse for New Years! Please seat large groups separately ( in another room) , because they drink and start yelling! I want a quiet, luxurious meal..not a bar room atmosphere. Also, waiting for a table would be more comfortable in a place with seating, away from front door. Maybe upstairs ( which was empty New Years).
New Year’s Eve. Great service. Great bartenders and service
This was our (me and my husband) first time dining at The Firehouse Restaurant, the dining experience was elegant and we were attend to in a gracious and attentive manner. Thank You, we will return!!
Very, very, very expensive and overpriced, selling the atmosphere and service
Special event NYE was overpriced for what we got. Food was excellent but no salad in the selections and for that Evening we expected to be greeted with at least a complimentary glass of champagne or sparkling wine...or Prosecco...or Cava!
Went for New Years eve dinner, good cocktails at the bar. For course meal was good, appetizers good, rack of lamb excellent cooked perfect, crab stuffed pastry was to fishy for my wife, desert lemon tart was way to tart couldn't finish. service was very good.
The food arrived cold. . They did warm it up but the next course also came cold. I will take into consideration that it was a busy New Years Eve.
Pre fixe menu not noted on open table... Reservations outpaced seating, so we ended up with people standing next to our table chatting up their friends about how long they were waiting. 3 out of 4 courses were executed well, not a fan of people trying to take my plate everytime I set my knife and fork down. Our primary server Sean was awesome.
Absolutely awesome in every way!
Awesome food with high end vibes, yet affordable. We come back because of all the great things Firehouse has going. We are investigating about having our wedding here!
I worked in restaurants for a large portion of my young adult life. I was a dining car waiter for several years back in the fifties & sixties long before Amtrak existed. The Firehouse has the ambiance and the service but the food is far below the excessive prices. The server represented they received "fresh fish every morning." I should have known the salmon would not be fresh. Could not eat it, and I never turn away food. Never known chateaubriand to be served in 3 small slices, especially for sixty eight bucks. To impress this may be the place to go. For food, not so much.
Restaurants don't stay around as long as the Firehouse unless they do something right and are consistent with it. Every time we go, it is every bit as good as I remember from the last time. We recommended it to our neighbors and they are still talking about it.
Everything about the Firehouse makes it worth your time to have great food and ambiance.
Made our Anniversary dinner very special !!
