I enjoy firebirds. Overall the food is great. My only complaint would be the chocolate brownie dessert I ordered. It was not the same quality that I recalled the last time I ordered it. The brownie tasted as though it was store bought or came from a Betty Crocker mix. They must of run out of the ingredients to make it or the vendor didn’t have any. It wasn’t warmed up except maybe towards the middle. It kinda tasted stale and there was not enough of the dark chocolate sauce. I was looking forward to it but was rather disappointed.
Fabulous - Friendly - "Angel" was the best server yet. Thanks
The food was very good, and the service we received from Josh was outstanding.
After telling them the reason we were there was our anniversary there was no acknowledgement of it. We were sat at a table in a section different then where our server was serving which slowed our service down alot! We almost felt neglected at times because servers would walk around us.
Great food, outside dining was wonderful! Service was good.
Good, solid food. Could be seasoned a bit more, but good overall. Service was excellent. Very friendly and professional staff.
Greating, service and food was perfect. Would highly recommend.
Food was very salty, waiter was overwhelmed and lost our drink and then claimed there was no more, Coca Cola was flat, gave us to go boxes without a bag to put it in. And gave us our receipt without the booklet to put our card. The list goes on! It was our 2nd time at this location and I think our last. Horrible!
Great food and service. Never disappointed when I go to Firebirds!!
Fantastic food and drinks! Highly recommend. Romantic setting and in a great location.
I’ve dined here many times and have always had a good experience. This time was pretty rough. I was notified at 8:37 that my table was ready… my reservation was at 8:45. I responded that I was on the way. We arrived by my reservation time and they had give our table to someone else. The hostess was leaning over the hostess stand as if she were exhausted. Our table had been wiped with a soaked cloth and was so wet the menus stuck to it so our waitress had to come dry it. Our waitress did a great job. She was very energetic and interactive. We were dining la
First time at Firebirds. Food good, service generally fine, Amber very helpful and personable, but one small oversight- filled both of our wine glasses without offering test sip from bottle. Noted most wait staff wearing masks.
Great time catching up with my family member. We had delicious wine, lobster app was delicious and food was terrific.
We were a party of four. The restaurant noise level went beyond "energetic" to downright "loud," to the point that our server had problems hearing use and vice versa.
Two people ordered fish dishes the other two ordered the aged ribeye. The steaks, although cooked to order, medium and medium rare, were served at a temperature that was cooler than it should have been. They would have been cold before we could finish them.
When we tried to explain this to the server, she had trouble understanding whether we were talking about the internal color, spice, or actual heat. Despite our best efforts, she had to call a manager. The manager understood and offered us the option of a quick reheat or to have two new steaks cooked. We opted for the reheat, as we didn't want to wait for new steaks. Little did we know the "45-second" reheat was going to take in excess of five minutes. However, when the steaks came out, they were the correct temperature.
Great food. Great service.
Our table was ready when we arrived. Although we sat near the kitchen it was not Smokey - so good airflow. More open and welcoming than other locations we have been to. Service was great- knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, a good experience.
We had an amazing time! Service was incredible & the food was amazing. I got the “By the Fire” cocktail and it was one of the best drinks I’ve ever had!
This was our first visit to the restaurant. Food was good only issue is my steak was more on the well done than medium
We also ordered salmon, burger, and Mac and cheese for kids
All were excellent, the service was outstanding I wish we new the name of the person who was assigned to our table but she is fabulous and friendly.
the reception desk was average the person was not so welcoming even when I tried to make some small talk with her.
Food was good defiantly would go back.
Staff is always courteous and friendly, always a pleasure!
Food was delicious! Server was very attentive! Creme brule cheesecake was absolutely amazing!
Great food, beer, happy hour and outdoor seating for fall
Well prepared ribeye and filet mignon. Chop salads were good
My rare burger was a little bit too done but not enough to send it back.
The meal was delicious and our server was so attentive to our needs as we had to have different items left off our meal selections due to dietary restrictions. Our server was a excellent listener and did suggestive selling . She helped make this a great experience! We will be back!
The Ribeye and Salmon and sides were prepared well and good. Service by Taylor was terrific.
Food, selection, and service are excellent. A little pricey, but good for a special occasion.
I will preface this by saying it was homecoming night but given that aside it was an ok experience. Making our one year anniversary at firebirds for dinner just ok..
Food was extremely late and undercooked and I swear I thought the waitress took off with my credit card with the time I had to wait to get it back.
Would I return? Probably not
We always enjoy our visits to Firebird's Wood Fired Grill. It does seem that the menu has been trimmed back in the past year or so and no longer offers some of my favorites like the Coconut Shrimp platter or the Shrimp with the Habanero aioli sauce. Please bring back the original menu items.
Great evening - great food - great service!!!!!!!!
Pre-concert dinner. Quick service and good food a d drinks!
The space, particularly indoors, is very attractive. Alas the food is mediocre. This was our second time at Firebird. We won’t return.
The food was slow to come out. My wife ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio, but they came back 15 minutes later and said they were out. My sister doesn’t eat dairy so ordered her mixed vegetables without butter. They came with butter. No apologies but they did redo the order. We ordered the equivalent of Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer. It came late - after we had finished the entrees - and was not the same flavor but Buffalo Wing sauce instead. My aged ribeye was tougher than I expected. All in all very poor service from the kitchen. They are understaffed.
The service was very challenged. Getting water refilled took 10 minutes, twice. Dinner arrived within 45 seconds of the appetizer. Screaming children and their blaring loud iPad movie playing behind us was so irritating. Table top TVs without headphones should not be allowed. Just a disappointment this time...
Everything at Firebirds is great. The food is exceptional and the staff are real professionals!
One of our entrées came out 40 minutes after the other two.
We also ordered the surf and turf with the 9 ounce filet and the lobster tail was completely overdone and very tough. We were not offered any compensation after making our waiter aware of that and nor did they comp the meatloaf dinner which arrived much much later than the other two dinners because of a order screwup. They did offer a dessert but we felt that was insult to injury because of the other two situations with the entrées. We felt they should’ve comped those two meals! We eat there all the time but now question whether we will ever go back!
It was our first visit. Great service, good food and nice ambiance. Will definitely return.
I was in town on a short family visit. I’d made a reservation and you guys were very accommodating! We were seated at a round table for 7….I’m terrible with names but our server, a lady with dark hair, was wonderful!
Excellent service along with great food. Ambience was nice.
Great food and service, highly recommend for a nice dinner out
