This is an old fashioned white-linen tablecloth restaurant with black napkins, a true sign of class. The very romantic main dining room is gorgeous, with a number of beautiful paintings on the wall. Also included are five gold-leaf mirrors and a grand fireplace. Service (led by Dynise) was impeccable, professional and attentive but seamless. And the food is of the... More

We recently celebrated our anniversary in Sacramento; had dinner at this lovely old fire house restaurant conversion in Old Town Sacramento. I had eaten there probably 30 years ago and had fond memories of the place - wasn't disappointed, the place still serves a wonderful menu of foods beautifully and deliciously prepared! The dining room is interesting and has some... More

The Firehouse restaurant in Old Sacramento continues its multi-decade run as one of Sacramento's premier restaurants. Elegant ambiance, linen table cloths, outstanding menu, a wine cellar which has been recognized as "Best in California," and a superb wait staff -- all meld perfectly together to make every dining experience a special occasion. My wife and I recently ate at the... More

As a native Sacramentan, I spent many years enjoying special occasions at the Fire House Restaurant. In fact, back in 1979, my father's retirement party was held there by the EDD. The food is deeply American--steaks and such. But, oh so good. It's a place to take business associates you want to impress, a first date, or to celebrate something... More

The menu has become more eclectic recently.It is very pricy for Sacramento [San Francisco prices]. It is a great restaurant for a VERY SPECIAL .event in your life.

Came in here for dinner, business meeting. We ordered Fillet Mignon medium rare and deserts are Chocolate Mousse. The Fillet Mignon came out a bit rare not Medium rare but the meat is so tender so I am OK with that. The dessert is good...not super but tasty. Service are very excellent, they serve you really good and respectfully.

Was with a group of 8 last night and had a very good experience. The only disappointment was the oysters and I think it was just because our group is from the Midsouth and not used to this type of oyster. Everything else was EXCELLENT. Service was excellent also.

My wife and I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary with a dinner at the Firehouse but sadly I was disappointed with the lack of "special" feeling given that I had told them of the reason for a special dinner out. Upon checking in they simply said - "Oh I see you are celebrating your anniversary -- happy anniversary" No rose... More
