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!

We held a birthday dinner here. It was a party of 8 and they were very accommodating. I had the asparagus bisque which was quite nice and flavored well. I also had the gnocchi which was flavorful as well. Other dishes at the table that people raved about were the sea bass and filet mignon. I was also very pleased that the corkage fee for the magnum we brought was the same as a 750 ml bottle (only $25). If we're in the area again I'd stop by again and would recommend it.

The atmosphere on the patio was very nice. We were seated by the alley though and unfortunately the restaurant behind was blasting their music. Service was great. Food was ok. Definitely didn't live up to the prices. I was expecting everything to taste amazing, but it was just okay. The beef carpaccio was VERY salty, the tomato burrata salad had no flavor and my pappardelle was also under seasoned. It was nice to to get out during COVID and feel a little normalcy for a while!

The Firehouse has amazing food and excellent staff in a nice environment. We were seated inside adjacent to the patio, and it was the best of both worlds. Our food was, as always, outstanding. It's expensive, but worth it. However, the main dining room is down stairs, so it's not very accessible. I believe there are some tables upstairs, though.

I had high expectations going in, given the reputation. We were seated right away (with reservation). Seating was perfect distance from others. I felt comfortable and safe...
Service was good to begin with, got water and drinks relatively quickly. Unfortunately, we were served a second-hand cocktail (Firehouse Diamond Fashioned). Didn’t realize until we got the second round and noticed how different it looked and tasted (better the second time around). Didn’t appreciate that.
We also didn’t see our server after our initial order (plates were served by course by the runners). Food was great, to be expected for the reputation and price.
At the end, a busser came by, I asked for our leftovers to be boxed. He took one plate, said okay, then came back with one box and a wine bag. We realized then he had wasted one of our plates :( BUT we let the server know and they cooked the amount we had leftover for us to take which was nice.
Overall would love to return with hopes of slightly better experience. Now know what to look for in cocktails and leftover treatment.

The food had no salt! It was crazy. For the cost of the food it was soooo under seasoned, I couldn't even eat my $65 steak. Even the Crème Brule was bland. Ambience was nice though and service was formal and attentive. If you're coming for a culinary experience, skip it. If you want romance and fanciness, give it a try.

We enjoyed our dinner at The Firehouse. Our reservation was 8:30pm. The only negative thing was that we got our food at 10 pm due to the couple of large groups around us.

We didn’t like any appetizers on menu so we didn’t order one. My lamb chops were rare. I ordered medium rare. Waitress took lamb chops back and they were still rare. Hated the mint sauce. My husband had a rib eye steak that was chewy. Your website said there was a $20 corkage fee and we were charged $25. Dessert was great and our waitress was excellent. Loved the ambience. Not sure we’re coming back for another try. Maybe after Covid is over.

Hi Claudia, we're sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us and we do hope you'll give us another chance to impress you. We also offer a lovely weekday Happy Hour from 4-6pm which you might enjoy. Additionally, could you please let me know where on our website you saw anything noting a $20 corkage fee rather than the $25 which we charge? I'm looking everywhere on our site and I can't it. Thanks!
