I stopped in Alexandria to meet local friends for brunch, and we had a wonderful meal. They touted the restaurant as one of their favorites for breakfast, and I can see why. When you enter the restaurant, you first go through a dark, cozy pub...More

We have visited the Firehouse a few times. Our best experiences have been sitting in/at the bar for great cocktails and yummy food. The experience in the main dining room, upstairs, has always been a disappointment -- now we always stick to the bar. Their...More

Great little spot with a minimal Menu. We sat outside, small seating area but very quaint. We seemed to be surrounded by locals, we were getting odd looks the entire meal. But that didn't bother me, I enjoyed the sausage n biscuits. Very creamy gravy...More

Feels like an intimate bar when you walk in, but then you're led to an open, airy dining room. Very comfortable, good service, good food.

We averaged about %150 a head, but we did have wine pairings with every dish, and a 4 course meal, so that's not unreasonable in my opinion. Delicious food, great portion sizes, and fantastic service. I would definitely visit again, and soon.

Dined here in mid-April with old friends, girlfriend, son and daughter-in-law. Eight of us total. I'll be brief here. Great decor and atmosphere. But food was another story. One lady's chicken was totally raw (red inside) and had to be sent back. It was returned...More

This is a truly beautiful space. The food is spot on. The thing holding me back from giving this restaurant an excellent rating is the service. You shouldn't have to ask for water to be refilled. Nor should you have to ask twice for a...More

We enjoyed a recent family dinner here for a birthday celebration. When you first walk in the restaurant, it appears to have a dark and ubiquitously appointed historic feel for Old Town but as you enter the atrium area, it really opens up and is...More

Great food, great service, like eating a home cooked meal. Atmosphere is somewhat lively depending upon the crowd. Great drinks. This is a somewhat pricey establishment, but on par with other restaurants in Old Town. I found the cocktails to be reasonable.
