Columbia Firehouse has a great location and the rooms are attractive, however, the music is too loud for a conversation with the person seated next to you let along the one accross the table. Waitstaff can get snippy about requests to turn it down. Fries...More

Perhaps for a bar scene this restaurant might be a good place. You must also like having to shout at those you are with or have them shout at you to be heard. Rodger, our server was very friendly, efficient and attentive, but that was...More

Met some relatives here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was friendly and the food was good. Loved the old brick walls and the high ceilings. Will definitely go back next time I'm in town.

Surprisingly short wait for a Saturday evening. We were told it would be just 5 minutes or so which turned into 10 which isn't too bad. However, we realized when we were seated that the place was basically 50% empty which annoyed us. So the...More

Our Neice knew just the place to go to impress her uncle when we visited her in Alexandria Va. And she was right...from the cheese board to the gazpacho and salads to the various main dishes, the food was wonderful. The service and decor was...More
