Company dinner

Came here for a company dinner. The service was really attentive and accommodating. The place is dark, could be perfect for a romantic dinner. They have a few rooms you could reserve for meetings, parties, etc. The food is usually on the pricy side (but I didn't have to pay :D) but I think it's... read more

Attended a wedding at the firehouse. The setting was lovely, the food was delicious and the service was great and so helpful. Randy, the event manager was awesome! This will be our new favorite romantic spot for dinner! (you have to check out the old pictures in the hallway near restrooms! CA icons!!)

We went there for Mother's Day dinner and it exceeded our expectations! Great service (ask to sit in Denise's section), the food was spectacular and the wine list is unbelievable!!! Our only disappointment was we couldn't have dinner on the patio as requested but they did call two days prior to advise us of the situation. The patio has private... More

I was getting concerned that there were no great Restaurants in Sacramento but this one was excellent. We were in a large group in the wine cellar and they allowed us to order off the menu and the food and service was excellent. Wish we had the opportunity to go back.

We went here for a graduation dinner from a law school. The outdoor venue was so nice and the rear area was excellent. There is a lot of history here you should explore.

the garden is perfect for lunch or inner. High quality place in Old Sacramento. Make reservations and dress at lunch is casual.

The Firehouse is an institution in Sacramento---the most elegant restaurant in Old Town for three generations (or more). Food is very good, ambiance is elegant, location is ideal for tourists and natives visiting Old Town. It will be ideal for Kings fans when the new arena is open for business. Why only 4 stars? I'd give it 4.5 if I... More

Our dinner was nearly perfect. It is a bit pricey, but it was worth what we paid and we will go back. The presentation is artistic, the setting is formal yet comfortable with massive paintings and mirrors on the historic brick walls. Every serving from their Anniversary menu was excellent, and the small touches like mini appetizer, sorbet to cleanse... More

Second trip back to the Firehouse. Outstanding oysters and an fabulous smoked tenderloin carpaccio charcuterie board. The service at the bar was par excellence. I really really enjoyed my time and I give these folks top marks. Enjoy for your own.

Had a lovely dinner with friends. All the appetizers looked spectacular. I had the crab cake and it was very nice. Sampler was also very popular -- despite the healthy portion size there was not a morsel left on the plates at the table. We almost unanimously had the filet mignon. My friend ordered his blue and I ordered mine... More
