I am upset that I didn't get 100 point reward for eating here. Please review and give
the credit. As long as you deny me my deserved reward, I will no longer dine here and
will tell friends to avoid. Please reply.

Valentine’s Day dinner a day later (15th)
Had been to this venue when it was a previous restaurant
Love the interior decor - felt comfortable but formal clubish but personal
Great service not overbearing considering the small space
Dishes are presented in a very professional manner and the food itself is fantastic
Full bar is quite a pleasant surprise

Very charming and quaint place. Food was average- perhaps due to Valentines Day and busy evening for them.

The food was delicious and they tweaked a dish for us as we are pescatarians. The service was excellent from the waiter to the water/busboy. We eat here often but they outdid themselves for Valentines Day!

What a thoroughly disappointing experience. On the plus side, The physical restaurant is charming and conducive to conversation. The food is of good quality, and it’s presentation is attractive. But that is where the upside ends. The cuisine itself is a curious mix of either very odd tastes or extremely bland ones lacking any excitement. The chef’s taste buds must be questioned. And then there is the price of a meal. One is willing to spend the same for truly good fare, but not for this.

Love this place. My sole complaint is they keep it really dark and it's hard to read the menu. Otherwise, it's a local favorite.

We enjoyed our food very much and that it was quiet enough that we could easily carry on conversation. Perhaps our server could have checked in sooner to take our order and dessert order, but other wise was amazing!!

I like be the quaint, charming interior of Firehouse Bistro! The service couldn’t have been better, our food was delicious, and visiting with our friends was very easy. The salmon was exceptional! It was our second visit and we will definitely be back.

The food was good; the table service was very good. Service when it came to payment was, in my opinion, fraudulent. When I entered I told the person who seated us that I planned to use an Open Table reward card. I was not told that the restaurant would not accept the card until the check was presented. I felt that Firehouse pulled a successful Bait and Switch.

Loved the ambiance—very cozy. The food was delicious but not fabulous. The service was only so-so. The wait staff was very friendly but disorganized. There were 2 servers that seemed to be taking care of all the tables together which made things a little chaotic. Overall, I liked this place and will definitely be back!

Such a romantic setting, it has become our spot for date night. An intimate fire lit space with a decor that harkens back to the old days of Woodside when the building was a fire station. The service is wonderful, as is the food. I so appreciate that most of the dishes are gluten free! The lemongrass chicken is my favorite.

We always feel well cared for and wonderfully fed whenever we eat at The Firehouse Bistro. This was no different. From the time we walk in to the moment we leave, we are fed well, allowed time and space to talk, and made to feel welcome and familiar. We love this restaurant.

Our first visit and it was surprisingly good food and service for a party of 6. Excellent selection of starters and mains. Kurobuta pork chop, lamb chops, seafood risotto, grilled sea scallops, salmon on cedar, roasted chicken, something for every palate in our group. Bread pudding dessert was very good as well. Decent wine select. Tables near the door get a lot of draft, so if you're sensitive to cold, best to get a table further towards the back. Parking was not an issue, but finding the driveway in the dark, if you're not already familiar with the location can be a bit challenging.

I'm sorry because I don't enjoy criticizing anyone or business, but I was so disappointed in the dinner. Salmon, fine, but the vegetable on the plate was papaya, both unappetizing looking and tasting. The Brussel sprout appetizer was kind of oily, soggy. The waiter brought the appetizer and not the wine. Had to chase him down to get the wine.

The restaurant can be very cute and has inherent ambiance, but the food was a big zip. The menu was very traditional.

This was my second time at this restaurant. Both times I made reservations, both times I walked into an empty restaurant, both times I was asked several times if I had a reservation (what the name on the reservation was, etc.), both times the restaurant never reached capacity. It's weird.

The service was fine during my first visit. This time, however, the service was disappointing. The waiter was friendly, but in a hurry. We felt rushed and while we were having leisurely meal, spending more time visiting than eating, we ultimately felt like that concerned him. The restaurant was empty when we walked in for our 7:00 reservations, it got about 1/2 full while we were there, and then it was empty again by about 9:15, short of one other table. Even though we had our bill, he came over and asked if he could run the card, he was going on break. At that point, we couldn't image he was really going on break. I wonder if he pushed the very last table out like he did us? In no way would we have overstayed our welcome, nor did we give our waiter reason to think we would.

It is the perfect restaurant to enjoy an excellent meal, in great ambiance, with an old friend you just want to catch up with. The staff treats this place more like a hybrid of a restaurant that requires reservations months in advance and a diner that has a line out the door that needs to turn tables. Neither of which are seemingly warranted.

Would I recommend this restaurant? I still would, but I probably would include this little caveat.

Although there was music playing in the background and low lights for ambience the dining room was missing something. Can’t really put my finger on it. My Wife ordered wine from the wine list. Rather than the server saying they didn’t have that wine, he immediately said with another wine label. My wife again ordered the first wine she had selected from the wine list thinking our server missed heard her order and that’s when he said they were out of the wine she was requesting. I asked for a cocktail menu and was told they didn’t have one. They did have a full bar. I ordered a whiskey drink which the server didn’t know. However he did a Google search found the recipe and make it for me. Our server didn’t have much of a personality. We were only one of three couples in the entire restaurant. I would think with a few clients on a Friday night we would have been given a little more attention.

My wife had the special, meatloaf. She said it was dry as if it had been made the day before. She ate about half of it And opted not to take the remaining half home. I had the cheeseburger. It was good cooked I requested. Dinner overall was so so. We were headed to dessert menu after dinner. My wife spotted bread putting on that menu. When she said bread putting a loud their service said we’re all out of that. We opted for no dessert, asked for a bill then headed home.

All in all our anniversary dinner at the Firehouse Bistro was a dud!

No A/C int the dinning room, made for a less than comfortable experience. Service was very good and friendly. I had the meatloaf special and found it dense and dry. My wife enjoyed her rack of lamb, and we both thought a shared Caesar salad was excellent.

Most dishes contained garlic, which was unacceptable to my wife. The chairs are low and the tables high, which makes for uncomfortable seating. The establishment charged a 20 % tax, which I believe is illegal. In San Mateo the sales tax is 9.25 %. The waiter was competent and friendly. The dishes are very pricey.

Really any of the categories above would fit depending on one’s budget.
I had lamb chops which were superb. I have celiac and they took good care of me. The veggies were great and a great variety. A bit on the crunchy side for my tastes, but so easy to over cook so I didn’t send them back. They were beautifully arranged. The sauce on the lamb chops was really good. At first they looked too rare but they actually were perfect!!!
My Mom had ceasar salad and said it was one of the best ceasars she’s ever had. She’s 91 and has been ordering ceasars almost every time we’ve gone out in my 62 years. So that’s a lot of ceasars to be in competition with.
Our waiter was super nice and helpful.
