We were having a mini birthday celebration for my husband. Service was very good and wait staff was attentive. My shrimp and strawberry salad was very good…salad dressing on the side as requested. My husbands cilantro chicken dish was not very good…chicken was under cooked. We were asked if we’d like another dish and we chose a dessert since it was midway through the meal when he realized the balance of the chicken was underdone. Waitress was very apologetic about meal. We’ll try again.

The Cosmo was not good at all. It tasted medicinal. This Vodka martini is supposed to be very light pink in color, mixed with Triple-Sec and shaved lemon skin, served very chilled. I was not very happy. thank you for your interest in my opinion.

We ate at Firebirds for the first time for a mid-afternoon lunch and were very pleased. The service and the food were excellent. We will definitely be returning.

The food was excellent and the service was great. Our server was very attentive and all the staff was very friendly. A good collection of meal choices. They use different combination of ingredients, sauces and such to give the dishes they're own special touch.

The hostess had some difficulty finding us a table even with reservations and the restaurant nearly empty. Three of the wines I tried to order were out of stock. So I ordered a classic margarita with the glass filled with ice to the top and the liquid ingredients about two thirds to the top. Very disappointing. I ordered the smaller size of the prime rib which I love eating here. As I went to cut into the meat I realized they had given me the well done end piece. I sent it back. My spinach salad was excellent except for the egg shell pieces left on the eggs. Not sure whether I will return in the future.

I had been to Firebird's before years ago and found it to be just okay. I didn't plan on visiting ever again but I had family in town and needed something that could please everyone. Hostesses were accommodating, we had a last minute change to our party size and they were able to handle it without a problem. Our server was very nice and friendly. Drinks came out quick, our order was taken promptly, it was pretty smooth sailing. Apps took awhile and then the kids food hit the table immediately after. About 5 minutes later our entrees were out. My mom ordered seared tuna without understanding that the tuna was just seared and the server handled that situation very well. Service was on point for the most part. We were never looking around and wondering where our server was. All our food was tasty but my favorite was the cheesesteak egg rolls. Kids portions are a great value. For the food and service our check was surprisingly low. I would go back.

Jenny was so cheerful, attentive and an excellent server. We also appreciated the presentation of the appetizers and the attentiveness of the general manager. He was very interested in delivering customer service excellence. This was the best restaurant team experience we have had in a very long time. Keep up the great work and we’ll be back!

We ate on the patio-in the shade, with a breeze and temps in the low 80's. It felt like being on vacation. I had a glass of Moscato and my husband had a margarita- both were excellent. We also both had the prime Rib- it was cooked just as ordered- Med-rare, and melted in our mouths. He had the loaded baked potato and I had escalloped potatoes- both were great. We each had enough to take home and make roast beef sandwiched the next day. We took advantage of the bonuses we'd earned for buying gift-cards in May and got $20.00 off. All in all a great evening!

Our dinners were outstanding. I especially enjoyed my salmon in lime butter. Dessert was so so delicious cheesecake!
Noise level was awful but the service we received from Nicki was oustanding. I plan to taken another friend next week.
Well worth your time and money.

We arrived for a 7:15 pm reservation. We were seated immediately. Waitress told us they had no bread to place on the table. We were starving. After ordering and waiting 15 or more minutes we finally asked for some crackers or something to hold us over while we waited for our food. She did bring us tortilla chips. Food took 55 minutes to arrive at our table. We are regulars at Firebirds. I have to see I've seen a decline in the food quality and wait times for our food over the past few months. We do not plan on returning. Too bad, it was such a nice place to go for a few years.

They are obviously short-staffed or have new staff. Server was nice, but totally inexperienced. Food took forever and was cold. Even the ice tea was bad. Manager was attentive, but it was a disappointing dinner.

I frequent FB on a regular. For some reason this time was just off. There was not straws--which is weird--asking customers to drink from glasses while COVID could possible exist.

Also there was not any bread crumbs for the planko- onion rings.

there was a pesty fly, knat or bug of some sort that was in our table area.

the menu should have a description of the food, as my guest ordered two meals which both had pork in them------if it was noted on the menu---- other options could have been available.

this whole FB experience as just MEHHHHHH!!!!

Superb dining experience thanks to the excellent chef and especially the extremely attentive and caring service offered by the lovely Candace.

We have dined here previously and always enjoyed our choices but with Candace in charge - everything was exceptional in every way!

Perfect service. Kitchen mixed up meat on salads but nothing we couldn’t fix at table. Food is well made but for the price they could have been more consistent with the amount of meat out on those salsa they mixed up! Very accommodating about where we sat but unnecessary to not provide happy hour drinks at tables. Very few other establishments do that and it will prevent us from going back in spite of all the positives.

I'll start off by saying I really love the food at Firebirds, portions are generous but the prices seemed a bit steep, especially on the steak! The noise level is pretty loud, but I think that's cause a lot of people are now excited to be dining out again without a lot of COVID restrictions. Only downside this trip was a couple of things came back not very warm, however waiter was happy to get them heated/replaced.

I appreciated that the chef was flexible with a menu item. I am lactose intolerant and cannot consume cheese or dairy. The chef substituted the cream and an oil and garlic mixture.

Food was great! The service at our table was slow. We had to threaten to leave to get our meal. They didn’t charge us for the meals but it left a sour taste. The food was really good though and I’d go back if I visited again.
