Yes, this was once a real firehouse -- the pole from which the hose men used to descend is still visible in the bar, along with some wonderfully garish, large scale nudes typical of the era. The dining room is plush and spacious, perfect for an intimate dining experience. The menu is varied and imaginative, and the personable staff allows... More

Excellent food, great ambiance, fun photos of California politicos. Our food server was fantastic. They also have a young patrons menu for kids. Highly recommend!

However, we decided to give it a try as a treat to ourselives at the end of a trip. SO glad that we did! There is a reason for... More

The restaurant in a converted firehouse has a lot of character and a nice menu of fine dining choices with interesting parings. Wine selection is very good and deserts are nice too. Worth the visit.

If you are in Sacramento looking for a great meal, lovely atmosphere and superb service, give this place a try. We have dined there a number of times and it has always made for a spectacular evening. A bit pricey, but you do get what you pay for.

Very good meal and excellent service in elegantly refurbished old firehouse in historic old Sacramento. Creative menu and nice wine list. Impeccable service! Definitely another visit next time in Sacramento.
