This review is for their onsite event catering. I attended a wedding reception here and found the food to be exceptional (I had salmon, which is not generally my favorite). The reception was held in the courtyard which was lovely and shady on a hot August day. I look forward to dining off the menu on my next trip to... More

It had been many years, since we were last in Old Sacramento, and I had forgotten exactly how one needed to get there from the Sheraton. The freeway sort of segregates things, and even walking proved to be a bit of an exploration. However, we made it to The Firehouse for our early reservation, but just by the barest of... More

We had a family meal there to celebrate a milestone and had made a phone call previously to speak to the Chef about a food request. Our daughter has celiac disease and cannot ingest any gluten. He was kind and professional on the phone. When we arrived at dinner, we were pleasantly surprised when he approached our table without our... More

The food is OK , not great considering the price. The menu does not give you many choices. The ambience is good and the bar is OK as well.

Beautiful shaded courtyard filled with plants and shrubs. In the alley, so protected from street noise. Staff is very attentive. Lite lunch alternatives to regular lunch menu. Wine prices are very high, not much choice at the lower ends. Food, portions, setting just right. Perfect for a quiet ladies or couples lunch not for families or young children.

Great location in the old town section of Sacramento. The old firehouse building is a wonderful place for the restaurant. A co-worker and I walked-in on a Monday evening, and eat in the outside courtyard. The food was great – the smoke Carpaccio w/ fried goat’s cheese was delicious, the tomato bisque soup was very tasty, and who could complain... More

Very beautiful atmosphere in an old building. Staff were very attentive and the food was excellent, from the bottle of wine we had to the dessert. We were there for a special occasion and it just made it more special.

Food & service excellent; only issue was with the hostess. We had a 5:00 reservation made via Open Table. Arrived early @ 4:00 when business in Sacto finished. Dinner service begins @ 4, so we sat in lounge and had a glass of wine & hors d'eouvres. Bartender/server Bo very attentive. However, we told two different hostesses, one @ 4:00... More

We have heard about the Firehouse and read other reviews on line. We were NOT disappointed! Very nice place and didn't have to get all dressed up - but some diners did. All of the wait staff were obviously highly trained & groomed for their jobs. Fantastic service! My Cosmo was divine & my husband had a tequilla that he... More
