Just finished having dinner at Columbia Firehouse! This place is great. You can tell the food is prepared fresh, in house. We had the ahi tuna starter (very good), portabella mushroom club (delicious), sea bass (good) and banana cream dessert (delicious). The building is beautiful and historic, its probably worth going for that alone. The service was a bit slow but in a leisurely kind of way. I would got back again.

Good food, service and atmosphere. All at reasonable prices. My first time to stay in Alexandria while visiting DC. Just happened on the Firehouse while walking. Nice variety on menu. Will definately go back.

If you like seafood, this is the place to go - but their best meal is the Sunday Brunch. Start with the Bloody Marys -- why not!! Then move on to their Eggs Benedict in three different styles or the giant Waffle with fruit and Chantilly Cream. Excellent service, great location in Old Town, it's just the best for an impressive brunch in a very relaxed setting. Try it!

The online reservation system said no tables were available for the Saturday 7pm slot our fmaily of 8 required, but a simple phone call and voila! they made it possible. We all had a wonderful dinner in a restaurant with great atmosphere. The service was outstanding and and not a single complaint. The menu had something for everyone - scallops were great, the bison stroganoff, and sea bass were the winners for our table. I prefer round tables for a group but the long table we had worked just fine. It looks like a great bar area, too, although we spent all three hours in the dining area. We all gave this a "would-visit-again" vote!

I really love this place. The interior is beautiful (especially the bar), service and food are great. I have been here at least a dozen times and have nothing negative to say.
