My wife and I have struggled to find a real high quality restaurant in the area. While I'd hardly say we have expensive tastes we do appreciate good quality, well prepared food and service that is not stuffy. FireHall Bistro did not disappoint in the slightest. This cozy little place tucked away in Pitt Meadows (yes, Pitt Meadows) is fantastic!
Gordon, our server, and co-owner went through every single menu on the item and explained them in delicious detail. Not too many places will do that for you. Many of the items are locally sourced (in season) and the ambiance is simple but classy at the same time.
My wife ordered the aged Alberta Ribeye and I had the Halibut, after we had shared the Calamari starter. Both the steak and fish were prepared perfectly and the presentation was excellent, as well as the carefully prepared sides.
Having heard about the desserts we had to sample them as well and they did not disappoint. Initially they looked very small but the tastes and textures made up for it and we left satisfied...
The overall bill - $70 before tip for shared appie, mains for two, two desserts and one glass of wine. Not bad at all, and well worth a decent tip as well. I also think it was very reasonable relative to what you would have paid for a comparable meal in Vancouver proper, or even Coquitlam or Port Moody for that matter.
We highly recommend this place and we will be back enthusiastically when the occasion arises.
