We decided to eat here before the Sharks game. Service was interesting. We were warned that the bone marrow appetizer would be twenty minutes. But our entree order got lost somehow. The server comped the appetizer, and it worked because we were not in a...More

Firehouse! What happened to you? A year ago I would've given 5 stars for great food, great service, and my favorite beer! But after last night and this transformation to be a hip/cool "gastropub", you've changed firehouse and I don't like it. First thing we...More

We came one summer evening and sat outside. We didn't have a reservation and would not have been able to get a seat inside, but we were just fine with the patio. We had an assortment of appetizers and really enjoyed the chicken wings and...More

Ate here for a late-ish dinner on a Monday evening. Great place for beer, burgers, and salad was pretty amazing as well. Beer selection was ok (maybe I’m spoiled by gastropubs with 20+ beers on draft), but my server was super helpful in consult on...More

This is my third time and the menu and food seems to be getting more bland. The menu is very slim and even the old stand-bus like Mac and cheese and burgers are yawnable. Nothing inspiring here.

The steaks here were excellent. As were the desserts and everything else we had. It was a great first meal in San Jose that set the bar high.

Comfy outdoor seating area, with heaters, if you like people watching. It's small and you'll be on the sidewalk, but it's nice.

Firehouse No. 1 Bar & Grill is a outstanding San Jose destination when you're looking for great food, delicious drinks, and friendly people. Gastro pub quality fare made from scratch in addition to impressive daily specials. A vast and well stocked bar that includes hand crafted cocktails in addition to draft and bottle beers, and select wines. Be sure to participate in the occasional whole bar sing-alongs, or cheer the bartenders on as they prepare exotic flaming drinks and smash bottles behind the bar. Lots of LCD screens when there is a sporting event or Sharks game - or just digital flames all around late at night. Open from 11AM until 2AM weekdays with happy hour from 3pm to 7pm. On weekends, open from 4PM until 2AM. We have full table service both inside and on the patio. Patio heaters when its cold.
