Samplers

The samplers that came out between courses really set you for a great main event, really beautifully cooked scallops, a little underseasoned but no complaint left on my plate. Try the filet mignon, worthy of demolishing.

Make sure that this is THE place you choose to eat when in Sacramento. Great decor...old firehouse...great service...and awesome food. I chose the chop. Very flavorful. The cucumber sorbet is a treat. The lemon cheesecake was spectacular. Meter parking not recommended. Use the valet. Not enough time on meter to enjoy.

The Firehouse is one of Sacramento's oldest premier restaurants. The service is superb, helpful without being intrusive. The atmosphere is traditional and unlike some newer restaurants is quiet and sedate although not boring. Food is always excellent with many fine choices. Wine list is extensive and they often have specials.

I took a couple of business colleagues to dinner at The Firehouse the other night. The steaks were great, the sides were delicious, the service was excellent and the wine list is superb. One word of caution, it is quite expensive. I think it's worth it.

We happened to be there during the dining downtown promotion that was going on and it was lucky for us! We were able to get a 3 course meal at a special price. The atmosphere was great, the waiters were attentive and the place is beautiful. It was a little bit difficult when we first walked in and had to... More

we were planning to eat at the Firehouse Restaurant for lunch, but we were caught in traffic and arrived past the serving time for lunch. Dang! But, not to worry, the hostess suggested we stay for "happy hour" instead. We were glad we stayed! The limited menu was excellent with several agreeable offerings. The atmosphere was historic and pleasant; the... More

Located in old town Sacramento, the Firehouse is an excellent fine dining establishment. The menu is diverse and delicious, and the wine list is phenomenal (though a bit on the pricey side). The place is actually much larger than it looks from the outside or even from the entrance. There is a downstairs garden room that opens up to courtyard... More

While in SAC on business my wife and I actually came here two days in a row. The first day for happy hour and the next for a full on dinner service. This place is definitely not for those seeking a casual inexpensive experience. Happy hour is the better value. $3 craft beers on tap and diverse appetizers. A dozen... More

We went here for our engagement dinner. Amazing staff, food, and service. Impressive wine list. Not cheap but worth the price. Made for a memorable experience.
