Diner Reviews
  • "We checked in and tried sitting in bar area for happy hour....but waiter insisted on adding table cloth and place settings. We ended up eating there instead of moving to dining room, which wasn't our 1st choice. From there it took 15 minutes to order drinks and finally receive them. Waiter did not know anything about drink orders, didn't know what over ice meant. Female bar tender had to read how to make a drink. It was all very challenging, but when the food finally came, it was exceptional. Will go back and try again."

  • "After meticulously taking our five orders for dinner, the waiter forgot to process my wife's. They served four of us, and then he returned about 10 minutes later to ask the obligatory "how is everything?" I said, "We haven't started yet because we are waiting for my wife to be served". After a long blank look, they huddled over the cash-register and then they waited 10 minutes before coming back to the table to tell us that they forgot her order and were preparing it. Later the owner/manager came by and asked how was everything. I said other than forgetting my wife's order, the food was very good. She tried to alibi, saying it was a problem with the oven - but they didn't need the oven to bring her bowl of Borscht."

  • "Excellent Russian/Ukrainian Food. Service could be better coordinated, though everyone we came in contact with was very, very, nice."

  • "Firebird's food is terrific...outstanding! The problem we encountered was service-related. Whoever is managing the place booked a huge party (looked like 40+) without making sure there were adequate servers to handle the extra work without ignoring the other diners. As a result, the service grew slower and slower throughout the course of dinner. Finally, after waiting 30 minutes for our desserts, we cancelled the order, paid the bill, and left. I would try Firebird again, but only after making darn sure they didn't have any large parties booked for the time I planned to be there."

  • "I bought an Amazon Local for this place for food and drinks and it was a great choice! Excellent food and appetizers. Great service and vibe. I would definitely go back."

  • "It was the night after Valentine's Day and the staff was a little weary, I think. Thing were a little slow moving and not sequenced properly. But they were very apologetic and I definitely would give them another try because the food was very tasty and the menu was diverse."

  • "Got my reservation via Open Table and arrived about 2 minutes early. The waiter / host looked frazzled and was walking around very quickly and sweating. He walked up to us and and didn't say anything, I mentioned that we had a 7:00pm reservation. He looked exasperated shrugged his shoulders and looked around the room and said, "What can I do?" That's not really the response I was looking for. I've been to the Firebird many times before, they're very friendly and the food is fantastic. However, on this day they were clearly overwhelmed. We did get seated and it was 15 minutes before we got a glass of water. We looked around the room and everyone seemed upset. We decided to leave in and try again another day."

  • "Came for a valentine's dinner with my wife. We knew we were in trouble after having been seated for a half hour before we saw the menu. We stuck it our and were happy with the food. Turns out the restaurant's computer went down and the service was doomed to having to ask each table if what was in hand was what was ordered. Though we left before it got very crowded we knew it was going to be a long night for staff. They were pleasant but everything arrived late and cold. BUUUUUT the food was very good and we intend to come back with other family members who are sure to enjoy the fare. So hopefully they get the computer fixed because it would be a shame to see this place go under to to these fixable problems."

  • "first time having Russian food, seemed to be authentic. The owner greeted us all and would check with every table. A little understaffed though, on a Thursday night, so the dining time was a bit long. The food was great!"

  • "We had been to Firebird for their buffet lunch, but wanted to try it for dinner. The only reason we couldn't give it a five is because one: they could not make our drink of choice as the bar was out of sweet vermouth and bitters, and two: although the stroganoff was quite delicious (noodles appeared to be freshly made), the beef should have been of prime quality, perhaps a filet. Very tasty and tender, but the texture was wrong for that dish. One of us ordered chicken Kiev with escargot for a starter, and was thrilled with his choice. House wine was good and fairly priced, as was the vodka shot. Great bread as well. Service was excellent, and we shall be back."

  • "Noise from the MC and the music from birthday party going on was incredibly loud and annoying. Even kids in the dining room were covering their ears. The host said this was a one time event that they hosted for another restaurant as a favor, that it wasn't always like this. The service was different. Everytime they brought us standard items they brought half the items the first trip then made another trip to bring the other half. The food was pretty good. We only ate appetizers and shared them and for the most part they were good. Nothing outstanding at this restaurant that would encourage me to go back, though if you like Russian food or just want to try something different, I certainly encourage you to try Firebird."

  • "We've come before because of their unique and savory dishes that are beautifully plated. We experienced several service issues. Special instructions on the Open Table reservation were unknown by the Host. We requested a table over a booth. The server reach over another guest's plate to serve food and utensil. My soup starter was served 5 minutes before the other guests salads. One of the guests order an appetizer as a main course with specific instructions to serve it as such but was served it at the same time as my soup and before her requested salad starter. The server took it back to the kitchen but she didn't seem to understand why. We thought that perhaps she didn't understand English very well. The Host was apologetic."
