Great food, Great Ambiance

Ambiance in this old firehouse is upscale rustic - ask for a table in the front of the restaurant as there is more going on. Staff was professional but not overly friendly.

Proprietors get a lot of mileage out of the old Firehouse. Looks / acts like a mostly locals joint. Ambiance is minimal, outdoor seating arrangements are just okay, inside feels crowded. Assuming the woman walking the tables was the maitre de, her constant checking for open tables was annoying. Pizza seems to be the fave of diners. Salad was adequate,... More

We had Father's Day dinner here a few nights ago. We had a reservation but had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. The hostess was attentive and kind, but we still had to wait. Once seated we found out that two of the entrees (the two we were most interested in) were not available and one of the... More

Under-whelmed by the appetizers, we had the ricotta and salami balls and the roasted cauliflower, which needed more flavor - both of them. Entree of Salt Cod was excellent, served with pickled onions and beets. Entree of meatballs was okay. Just meatballs. No pasta or anything served with it. Hot, no AC, great service.

We visited recently with friends, had called, had reservations and were seated immediately. The food was really delicious, but we had an almost 1 hour wait for our food. No one ever explained that there was a problem, but it was an unusually lovely night and this restaurant is open to the outside, so was a pleasant wait. We started... More

We were looking forward to savoring the rotisserie chicken but at 7:45PM, the restaurant sold out. Firehouse is known for its wood-fired oven, rotisserie, and grill, we opted for the pizza with mushrooms (wood-fired oven...how can you resist) which had a think crust almost like flatbread. The orrechiette pasta dish was substituted for true cod in place of pork which... More

What a delightful place to stop for dinner. It's a real gem. My friend and I made reservations but were unfortunately 20 mins late, the gave away our table but were great about getting us another one and gave us complementary appetizers - roasted beets and roasted cauliflower were just divine. We ordered a simple margarita pizza and it was... More

Went there on a Friday night after randomly running across the website. The website made me super excited to visit the place, almost like "why haven't I heard of this place before?" I made a reservation, through OpenTable, which was really good because the walk-in wait time was about 1.5 hours. We arrived a few minutes early and were taken... More

Great little neighborhood restaurant. We have been at 3-4 times, and we continue to love this place. Looking at the other reviews, I noticed the issues with the he staff. I was glad to see that they have implemented a dedicated host to greet you and assist with the the waitstaff. We were immediately greeted and showed to our table.... More

We chose not to make a reservation knowing we would enjoy a late dinner on a Wednesday evening, but we didn’t realize it was Portland Dining Month so there was a slight wait. Worth it. We selected the three course meal which Firehouse offers daily, not limited to Portland Dining month. The only difference this month versus other months is... More
