Third time I’ve eaten there. Soup was good and so was the carrot cake. From the description I thought it was going to be warm. But the cake is still very good. The prime rib was tough. Vegetables on my plate were over done and unappealing but the flavor was good. Service was very good and the company equally great. The food only gets 3 stars.

We were seated immediately upon arriving. Our server, Daija, was superb. Food was excellent and presented well. Half-price wine was an added bonus.

Everyone in our party thought their meals were wonderful. Steaks were tender and cooked as ordered. Appetizers were very tasty and devoured quickly. We did ask for bread which apparently you have to ask for. It does not come out automatically. The bread was delicious as well, fresh and warm. We all felt like we had to wave down our waitress too much but she was very friendly and attentive once we caught her attention. We had one person from our gathering who came late, after we had ordered our entrees. They were able to get his entree to him before any of us was done with ours which was very nice for him and accommodating of the restaurant. We had a wonderful birthday celebration and I look forward to going back soon. Delicious, tender, juicy steaks-yum!

The food at Firebirds was delicious, particularly their beef! It is definitely a cut-above and is more moderately priced than similar quality restaurants in Indy.

It was a very good experience. The food was very well prepared except the fried spinach was a little greasy. I couldn’t eat all the spinach because of that. The service was exceptional. Everything was prepared as ordered. You will spend a little more than usual but well worth the money.

We eat there regularly. The food was pretty good. Service was terrible. Was not even busy but the kitchen was backed up. Server kept disappearing. Salad came out with the meal.

We'll give it another shot based on previous experiences hoping this was a one time bad day.

Food and service were both very good. My only complaint was the acoustics. It was so loud we couldn’t hear each other very well.

Firebirds is a great place to meet friends - easy on and off 465 and boom you’re there for 1/2 price bottles of wine on Mondays - always a good thing! Rib special was a big hit...my ribeye was good - altho definitely not the most tender steak i’ve ever had...enflotes corn was delish!

Business meeting here was a great location and facilities. We happened to be there on a Monday which was half off wine, which was an OUTSTANDING value, with a good selection. The appetizers and lemon cake were the highlights of the food. The steaks were overpriced for the quality, they were simply OK, and forgettable. The service was lacking. On the first bottle of wine, the server poured a taste, and moved on to serve the others at the table before a taste. On the second bottle, was just opened and they did a pour over. Not what you do with a $90 bottle of wine (even at half price!).

My food (burger and fries) was fine, but everyone else thought their food was either under or over cooked. This included meatloaf, green beans and mashed potatoes.

When you walk in the door you smell the wood grill and it is amazing. Everyone at our table had the filet and they were all prepared as we ordered and delicious. Even though I am a dedicated chocoholic, we tried the lemon cake with blueberries (seasonal) dessert and I highly recommend.

The food was awful. Steak over cooked. No flavor. Potato’s old no flavor. Messed up the kids tacos and put hot spice on it like the adult meal.
Suggestions: buy organic mineralized meat, have employees be well trained, make Sure food is good,hot, fresh and healthy .

Very, very rushed, waiter tried to take our dinner order before asking what drinks we wanted. Side salads delivered before appetizers and then dinner arrived less than 5 minutes after appetizers came.

Only criticism is the NOISE - not at all conducive for conversation. Would be nice if there could be a few tables in a "quieter" spot!

Yes, absolutely! This was an anniversary dinner so we splurged a bit. Server Angele was excellent. Steaks and sides were delicious. Grilled shrimp on skewer only slight disappointment; not much of the shrimp taste. Crème brulee cheesecake -- yum! Would like to try lunch sometime.
