We were gifted a visit for our anniversary. Wonderful gift. Not entirely perfect but excellent and memorable. Our waiter (sommelier) was talented at listening to our wine and food preferences and helping us choose from the vast wine selection. We were happy with the results. We both had the halibut entree. Delicious, but a bit too cooked and was firmer than ideal. My scallops & shrimp appetizer was also a bit too firm, however very tasty. Her vegetable tortellini was perfect. Ceaser salad very good. Passion fruit cheesecake with mango I loved. Wife thought is was good/ok.
I planned on ordering the Chef’s tasting menu but it was not available due to an error in the kitchen. Again, things weren’t perfect in back
In all, we were very pleased. Beautiful old world California decor, perfect service, vast wine list, good but not always perfect kitchen. Yes, we want to go back.
Plan on $100 per person minimum with modest wine choices and 3 courses.

This venerable elder of the Sacramento fine dining scene remains one of the best.
The Firehouse was the first restaurant we ever went to in Sacramento when considering moving here. Old Sac was barely an idea back then, and many eating establishments have come and gone over the years - so there must be very good reason the Firehouse remains and thrives -- and there is!
Besides the excellent cuisine, and renowned service, the excellent bar and cocktails, there's just something about the ambiance and feel you get when dining here.
This past January we chose to ring in the New Year at the Firehouse - and could not have made a better choice! After a fabulous evening of wining and dining, it was out to the patio for the Old Sac fireworks show in what felt like a private viewing.

We had the chef’s tasting menu. It was superb . A great value and surprisingly delicious combinations . The wines pairings were flawless. The scallops and the duck were delightful. The service was a cut above. It was a special night and the ambiance , service and food were of the highest caliber.

Superb meal last night, numeours waiters who were all fantastic but one in particular was really helpful, chatty and so kind. Hundreds of bottles of wine to choose from but some are extremely expensive. Various options for meals but the lamb was delicious. Well worth a visit

My son and I went to the Firehouse -loved the inside and the service but the food was only average - I have the Ceaser salad which was ok and my son had the scallops as an appetizers - the scallops were very good but then our mains came - I had halibut which was over cooked and lacked love - my son had the duck two ways and it’s was rubbery
