A week or so ago my husband and I met a group of friends at Firehouse for dinner. When I heard where we were going to meet I was not a happy camper.. All visits to Firehouse so far had been a huge disappointment. Since the plans had already been made I went along and hoped for the best. I was told that Firehouse had a huge turnover in staff and management as well as bringing in a new chef. So.. I was optimistic. I was not disappointed. It was a very busy day.. There was a football game on and the bar and front area of the Firehouse was packed yet we were seated quickly in the back. While we waited for our friends to arrive our drink order was taken and drinks arrived promptly. As our friends joined us their drink orders were taken and delivered promptly as well. This was new. Lisa was our server and she was friendly and full of recommendations of yummy items on the menu. We all ordered and before you know it - our food was there.. Hmm.. this was new too. The food was delivered hot and was very very good. Lisa checked in on us often to refill our drinks and offer up suggestions on dessert.
I have nothing to complain about with this visit to the Coronado Firehouse. We will definitely go again because it seems that someone has been listening and taking action.
Kudos to the management at Firehouse.. I hope that our next visit is as enjoyable as this last one
Well, we’ve been there about a dozen times since they’ve opened; not a terrible experience yet. We’ve had great burgers, good salads, good fish tacos, and good beer (draft). The wait staff always seems attentive, I don’t recall an old guy, maybe he was fired between my visits. All of my plates have been made to order and I’ve always left satisfied and NOT disgruntled. Maybe I set my expectations low and if the place meets or exceeds those expectations all is good.
