    Kirby's is our go to special occasion restaurant and have not been disappointed in the past however last Saturday it seemed as though the kitchen was way off the mark. Tough NY strip, tenderloin tips was so-so and presented rather sloppy. The mac and cheese was really only mac, greasy creamed spinach and the fries have changed. They used to be the matchstick kind and now are no different than a common fry. We didn't send anything back as it was our daughters birthday. We will try it again with the hopes that this visit was mistake.

    I took a business partner out to dinner on a Sunday and was blown away by how great this place was. I found them by a basic Google search and looked at the online menu. I did not know much about the place prior to showing up. The valet was complementary and our table was ready as requested. The food was fantastic. We sampled some apps and the Lamb was the star. (my wife thought the Sea Bass was but she was wrong) I would highly recommend you try Kirby's

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    The steak was good. The salad lacked anything but plain lettuce and ONE grape tomato cut in 1/2. REALLY? Expected a real salad for the price and at such a nice restaurant. Maybe I don't know a cucumber? Also, I expected the restaurant to have a quiet ambiance with soft music. However it was extremely loud like a cafeteria and we could barely hear each other. Our server was nice, but kept interrupting our conversations rather than wait for a pause. Not worth the $170 for two we paid.

  • Poor Food Quality and Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/3/2014
    There were four of us. One order was wrong (Filet was ordered but they brought a Ribeye). When they finally brought the filet it was rare instead of the medium that was ordered and had to be sent back. By the time the Filet finally came everyone else was done. One Ribeye was so full of gristle that they took it off the bill.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    My wife and I recently had dinner at Kirby's. It was my second time there; her first. It's not a bad place; our server was what I'd expect. For the price you pay for dinner, I'll have to really think if I want to come back. The ambiance was OK, not spectacular. It was a little noisy in the restaurant, so while my wife and I sat next to each other in a booth, had we had another couple with us it would have been hard to hear them. Food was cooked excellent, but for the price I expected a little more on the plate. Wine list is extensive but expensive, and if you only want wines by the glass, there's not much of a selection. 2 glasses of wine, 2 entrees, 1 side dish, 1 appetizer, $140 + tip.

    My husband took me to Kirby's for my birthday. The food was delicious, the wait staff was courteous, respectful and attentive and the environment was romantic. It was nice to go to a classy restaurant where it was quiet and we could hear ourselves talk despite how busy it was. At times we even felt like it was just the two of us with just the right amount of attention! We will definitely return for another special evening.

    For a high-end restaurant, the food was not even as good as Saltgrass Steakhouse. The steak was brought out on a white plate with no garnish or anything to make it look appetizing. The side dishes were of poor quality. Our bill was $315 and for this price, we expect fantastic food. It didn't happen. I would not recommend your restaurant.

    The hostess was polite and promptly showed us to our reserved booth. Our server was patient and offered meaningful suggestions while we navigated through the menu. Beverages and food were brought straightaway. The lobster risotto was our favorite dish - smooth textures and savory flavors. Dessert was a sweet melody of white, milk, and dark chocolates with warm freshly baked cake and cold ice cream... Thank you for a fine dining experience as we celebrated our wedding anniversary.

    Just what I was looking for. Our evening began with the complimentary valet parking. Then, from John our Bartender to Jim our waiter...we were greeted and treated with the service royalty or our President would expect. All were friendly and attentive; there if we needed them. The service was the best I have experienced in some time. The food from appetizer to entree to dessert was heavenly. It is a meal that I will remember for awhile and can't wait to return to enjoy again. It is a place that I would love to share with my special friends and loved ones. It was our first visit, so we were given a gift card to use at a future time. Again, they pay attention to the smallest detail.

We are not big meat eaters so had ahi tuna.It was not the best we have had but what can you expect from a steak house. After the meal was the real shocker, the check.

    I will say I am a Kirby's longtime patron. I don't know if they have decided to change the ambience or character to compete with the new development of the mall, but it isn't working. I go to Kirby's for a romantic dinner and great steaks. Not a loud bar & very badly cooked steak. I spend around 350 to 400 dollars a visit. this visit was the worst steaks ever had at Kirbys. I ordered black and blue and Pittsburgh. I had the cowboy cut ribeye, new york strip and a filet mignon. None were charred and they all were cooked the same, bad. No char, the steaks were very tough. The bar room door stayed open most of the night then live band started. smoking in the bar made its way into the dining room, terrible. will have to think about returning
