Came in here for dinner and a couple of beers. Burgers were pretty good if expensive and the beer selection was decent. Not the most extensive menu but good atmosphere.

We had a reservation on Open Table at the time they opened. The front door had chairs blocking the entrance but they were open. Employees are rude & after 45 minutes & no service we walked out. The chairs were still there.

Food was good but the setting was just average and the wait staff was borderline rude. Better places to eat in downtown San Jose.

Small, unassuming but omigoodness! Our family (who live in San Jose) took us to dinner. Service was attentive and appropriately friendly.

Comfy outdoor seating area, with heaters, if you like people watching. It's small and you'll be on the sidewalk, but it's nice.

Firehouse No. 1 Bar & Grill is a outstanding San Jose destination when you're looking for great food, delicious drinks, and friendly people. Gastro pub quality fare made from scratch in addition to impressive daily specials. A vast and well stocked bar that includes hand crafted cocktails in addition to draft and bottle beers, and select wines. Be sure to participate in the occasional whole bar sing-alongs, or cheer the bartenders on as they prepare exotic flaming drinks and smash bottles behind the bar. Lots of LCD screens when there is a sporting event or Sharks game - or just digital flames all around late at night. Open from 11AM until 2AM weekdays with happy hour from 3pm to 7pm. On weekends, open from 4PM until 2AM. We have full table service both inside and on the patio. Patio heaters when its cold.
