Bad service and the food was worse. They treat old white men better than everyone else so welcome to the podunk Wild West. If you’re colored, be ready to feel ‘America great again’ to the core of your person.

Our server was hand picked by our friends who are regulars, Sean was outstanding in service and personality. He guided our wine selections and dinner choices , we were not disappointed with our entree, beverages and our special desserts. From beginning to end, a very nice experience. An anniversary treat. We will be back.

Went for dinner with my husband as it had a been a long time since we had a nice meal out together, but have been a few times before. They cooked my steak to perfection, as ordered. Always order too much food here, but I can't help but eat their delicious bread! Nothing super fancy about this place, but I love the old world feeling. Casual and upscale at the same time! Very traditional food that stands the test of time. Steak, potatoes, veggies, and some traditional French options.

Even in the heat of Sacramento summer - outdoor eating is always wonderful. We got a table by the water fountain which was lovely. Service and food outstanding. Love to come for lunch for the setting, service and food. Great lunch menu. Lot of options from entree to salad, sandwiches and hearty appetizers. Can't miss.

Firehouse Restaurant is a Sacramento mainstay located in the somewhat disappointing Old Sacramento area. The staff is professional and attentive, and the ambience is definitely unique and upscale. The wine list is extensive and the food very good, but both were priced quite a bit over value. All in all, a good spot for a special dinner in Sacramento; but be sure to bring your wallet.

We were there with my two friends for their birthdays and we loved the food and service. We loved and appreciated the wait staff checking up on us and refilling our glasses with water and wine. The birthday girls loved the creme brûlée and said it was the best they ever had. I missed out on getting the little sorbets to cleanse the palette for the next dish though. Maybe it is a seasonal thing? I will be back for more special occasions in the future.

Dinner and service were awesome, menu & wine list were extensive, but the added bonus was being able to valet the car and walk after dinner to Golden 1 Center for a concert and then walk back. As we walked back we texted the valet and he pulled up with the car as we were approaching. So smooth, so convenient.

The Firehouse was suggested to us by a business associate. It was just ok. I had the halibut, and my colleague had the steak. Definitely not worth writing home about, and also not impressive considering the price.

Our taxi service was canceled and then we had to go to another cab company. I called the Firehouse and talked with Alex and asked him to hold our table because we were going to be late. We were 45 minutes late. In the meantime, he told 2 of 8-person group what had happened so they did not have to worry. Sure enough our table was saved. The food was magnificent as was our wonderful waiter. We had such a wonderful time, despite our trouble with the taxi and the very crowded freeway. Thank you. Fran

The experience was outstanding. I was not sure from looking at the outside. However, the inside was somthing out of a a movie. Dramatic ceilings and art. Very classic and traditional. It is housed in a historic building. The food was at another level from most resturants. I would rate it up there with some of the other outstanding places we visit throughout California. The steak, scallops, even the salad was very good. Fine ingredients. It was expensive but the food and atmosphere matched it. The service was also very professional and pleasant. I would highly recommend visiting this resturant.

Been to the old Firehouse several times before for delicious business lunches, but this was my first dinner. As with the lunches before the food and service were outstanding. My dinner companion has several food allergies and the chef made adjustments to accommodate her specific needs while still providing a fabulous meal. Great job.
