The Firehouse is a popular Sacramento dining spot and is rated among the best in the city. Dinner service, which includes an optional five-course chef’s tasting menu (with or without wine pairings) can cost a pretty penny. But recently, The Firehouse has also introduced a three-course lunch for just $25, and a Happy Hour from 2:30-6:00 with oysters priced less than $2 each, and wine specials at just $6 a glass.
Although the exterior of the restaurant may not look very romantic, once you step into the restaurant, the elegant, Victorian interior is punctuated with antique gold-leaf mirrors, paintings from nearby estates and fixtures from Sacramento landmarks, as well as a large courtyard for outdoor dining. After dinner, take a stroll along the river, which is a couple of blocks away.
