Last year we had an excellent meal. This time not so much. The caesar salad was small for a main salad and dressing tasted commercial. Portion sizes overall seemed small. Pasta was average. Firefighter steak is a thin piece of flank steak, it had quite a bit of grissel and was tough to chew. The quantity and quality just didn't... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We only use striploin for our firefighter steak not flank steak. The thickness of the cut is usually dependent on the size of the eye of the striploin. We cut and clean our steaks to to minimize grissel, I can not speak to your particular cut because we have...

We phoned for reservations but on this night they were not necessary. Great soup and pasta dishes with a good selection of wine that is not overpriced. Very much enjoyed the hand made pasta that was not soaked in red sauce and was delicately seasoned and very well balanced. One of the better pasta meals I have had.

This was my second visit to the Old Firehall. The restaurant is small, so reservations would be recommended on weekends. Great food!!!! Excellent prices. Chris the owner is a very good host. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

This is our second time eating at this restaurant, the first time we ate outside and the food and service were excellent, this time we went inside, it was quite dark and the air conditioning grills were filthy, the food was still very good. Would not eat inside again.

Hi, thank you for your review, we are glad you think our food and service is very good. The air conditioning grill you speak of is our air return grill, from time to time it does get overlooked, we do have it in our cleaning schedule but sometimes it is overlooked and when air or heat is used consistently dust...

Decent food! Cute little place converted from a fire hall, hence the name. A little loud when there are large parties in the restaurant. Ordered chicken souvlaki and pasta both paired with a Pinot Grigio...Had a nice time overall!

This restaurant was okay but I wouldn't rush back. We were next door at Ravine winery that was booked solid for so we thought we'd try the Old Firehall for lunch. It's a small place inside and nice enough. Staff are pleasant but the food was just average. Had the saganaki which was good but the veal sandwich was far... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and the concierge suggested this restaurant for a nice lunch. We were 8 and they accommodated us nicely. The food and service was excellent! We were served quickly, but we weren't rush by any means. The building is super nice, although it is situated at a somewhat busy intersection, so I don't know... More

In town with my wife for the weekend. Stopped for a late lunch and was very impressed with the menu and the service. Expected more of a bar menu but I was surprised at the menu choices. I thoroughly enjoyed my roasted veggie salad, preceded by their version of Bruschetta Feta ( very tasty ) and my wife raved about... More
