We were celebrating two birthdays, with a group of 8. We we seated promptly and ordered some tasty cocktails & wine. The Pork Belly was a great appetizer, very well prepared. Most people had filet’s or rib eye steaks. Both cooked perfectly with a lot of flavor, including a scoop of herb butter.
The food & service were great and the ambiance of the courtyard made the Firehouse a perfect place for our celebration.

Food was cold including the crab bisque. Portions are small. We had many staff approach us when we first arrived but never received follow up on drink refills until the entire meal was done. Once I got my second hot water for my tea they already taken the new tea bag in the package . I was very disappointed that a meal that cost $200 for 2 would be this unpleasant. We wanted to try something new for our 2nd anniversary. First and last time I will dine here. We went during happy hour because we were interested in some of the dishes but was unable to get the menu. Mortons steakhouse is a much better place for fine dining.

The quality of the food and service is always terrific. My husband and I are 'foodies' from the bay area that moved here 4 years ago. The Firehouse ranks in the top five of our favorite restaurants.

Every aspect of our visit was absolutely fantastic, as always (I have been a recurring customer for years). Our waitress, Heather, was an absolute delight and could not have been more professional, poised, and attentive. She truly deserves high praise. Our only complaint would have been the incredibly rowdy table seated behind us. While I completely understand the restaurant's commitment to excellence and making each and every guest happy, there was one particular table of young women that had appeared to be disrupting every guest at the restaurant with their noise level. I more than understand the fact that sometimes these circumstances are beyond the staff's control. My husband was visiting for the first time, so he didn't notice my next complaint given that I have been arriving for years, but I was very disappointed to see that the tasteful dress code I have been accustomed to seeing at the restaurant in years before was seemingly no longer being upheld. Again, given the situation with the pandemic, I understand that no establishment, even one as fine as this, can afford to be nitpicky with clientele at the moment, I myself just feel the ways in which fellow guests comport themselves per the standards of the restaurant should be reflected, as it is an integral part of the ambiance. A friendly suggestion might be to make more clear and obvious the business-casual dress code that is outlined on the website when making reservations. All of this set aside, however, the visit was nonetheless wonderful as always, and we cannot wait to return again soon!

Because someone didn't show up for work in the kitchen it took a very long time to get our food. The waiter was apologetic and comped our desserts. But the dinner lasted from 4:30 to 7:30. Way too long. One of our party had intestinal troubles the next day, which we think came from undercooked fish.

My wife and I made a reservation for 9pm. We were 7 minutes late. Their doors were locked but someone let us in. We were greeted by one of the staff who acknowledged our reservation and was working on seating us down. Then the GM Mario talked to us. He was rude and asked us how we got in because he locked the doors. He then told us his kitchen staff were sent home and we would not be able to dine in even though we had a reservation. No apology or offer to make things right. We drove from the Bay Area to eat here and to get turned down because they should have not offered reservations at closing is not okay. Apparently the GM HAS 50 years of experience and his customer service was not clearly there or reflect his years of experience. We will not be coming back here.

Love the firehouse, however it’s been about six years and I remember a larger wine selection.
They had great wine however I was hoping for a bottle of silver oak. Not a problem I’ll bring a bottle next time I go. Great service and amazing food!
Would highly recommend.

We had oysters, appetizers and salads at happy hour, it was such a treat to have good service and ambiance despite COVID restrictions. The large tents and heaters aren’t the most beautiful aspect of patio dining but otherwise The Firehouse is an oasis.

We dined here for my husband’s birthday and it was everything we hoped for, especially after a year of being stuck inside bc of quarantine. We both opted for the chefs 3 course dinner and the food was divine!! We started with crab bisque, then the filet mignon topped with crab and bernaise sauce then finished with crepe brûlée. DELICIOUS!
