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!

This is one of the best 5 star dinners I have enjoyed in a restaurant. We had the tasting menu paired with wine. It was delight. Inspired cuisine and attentive but not offensive service. Layer flavors that lead to an gastronomic crescendo. If you are any where near the Central Valley and you enjoy the finer things, this is the... 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.

THE SERVICE: Made advance reservations on open table for eight of us for a Saturday evening at 7:30pm. The experience of using open table was great, as usual. The Firehouse Restaurant called me the day before our reservation to confirm we would be showing up, which we did. We're glad we left home 35 minutes early (even though we're 15... More
