Great service and food, excellent find in Portland!

We met two of our friends here for dinner and we were all super impressed with the great food and service at this place. It's not a huge space, but it's very cozy and warm with excellent food choices and beer/wine selections. Three of us had the steak, as was recommended by our very beautiful and... read more

My husband and I were visiting our son and daughter in Portland, and made reservation at Firehouse on a Saturday night at 7pm. We'd had a large lunch, so just wanted a delicious minimal dinner. Firehouse was perfect! We were seated immediately, served with delicious wine that was well priced, ordered fried olives for an appetizer, that were beautifully stuffed,... More

Went there with a couple friends. Reservation was made and we were seated immediately. Pretty small space so you're really close to neighbors but good thing is you get to see more plates. We ordered the three app special, aracini balls, bruschetta and fried cauliflower with a lemon creme fraiche. The three rice balls were very nice, creamy, a bit... More

We went on nice warm summer night, sat on the outside patio. Great ambience on the patio overlooking the garden. The dining room is really cozy and inviting, great place to be on a cold rainy portland night. We had the heirloom tomatoes and watermelon salad and beet salad and their amazing pizza. The staff are amazing and friendly. Go... More

The food was generally tasty. We had a beet and hazelnut appetizer, which was unique and satisfying. The pizzas were too salty. The trout, served on a skillet with sliced fennel and onions, was a standout. All of this, though, was overshadowed by a 25-30 minute wait between appetizers being cleared and main courses being served, with no explanation or... More

This restaurant does everything right. Portions are great, prices reasonable, service is amazing. Almost everything is cooked in their wood fired oven, adding great flavor and caramelization to the food. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a truly northwestern feel and a lot of locally source food prepared in a very creative way.

The food was good. That's where the good part ends. Service overall was terrible. We had a reservation; nevertheless, we waited 45 minutes for a table. We then waited 15 minutes for the waitress to get our drink order (and only when we got up and asked someone to send her over). She then brought some of the drinks. We... More

Loved the food at this popular neighborhood restaurant. Clean, fresh flavors, and a nicely varied menu. Loved the mussels and the meatballs. 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
