This was an amazing night.. the last few times attending here we where all pretty unhappy with the food.. Sunday night was so awesome, the food was Amazing, a wee bit strong in the seasoning again, but the meats were perfect, and our waitress Selena was so on it, and very friendly ... a few could learn from here.. Thank you

I had a reservation at 8:45 and I arrived at 8:54. I figured since I was late my table may not be available still. We had to wait for about 15 min to be seated (which was fine because we were late). The hostess that sat the people before us apologized to them for the wait and was very friendly with them. They came to get us and sat us at a dirty table (there was salt and a drink on the table still) with no silverware. We figured it was because of social distancing we had to wait for so long but when we were seated there were tons of open tables and they sat us next to 2 full tables. The waitress was not friendly and didn’t come to the table very often. She got our order and didn’t ask how we would like our food cooked (and we forgot to tell her) so they came out basically rare. I got the same drink as my friend 2 times and our drinks tasted completely different. Overall the service was horrible but the food was good.

Always an amazing experience at Firebirds. Great cocktails, amazing ranch rings, and their dressings are to die for! We love to sit by the hearth, and it’s so cozy. My fav Indy restaurant

We eat here regularly but this time, the meal was just average. My prime rib 12 oz cut was incredibly fatty, more so than needed. Waitress did not come around to check until it was time for coffee. Disappointing when all of our other meals here were very good.

We always order the Cobb salad. It’s very good, but it seems like the portion size varies. Sometimes it’s larger than others. It’s very good

Been here multiple times and every time it’s been amazing!!! We have taken friends and family and get the same responses from them. Food and staff are always amazing! Well worth the price!!! Really doesn’t compare to anything else around Indy. It’s a very nice step up from usual chain steak houses with the barely a price difference and plenty of food if sharing! We had one appetizer, one salad and two meals split between 3 adults and still had enough left over for lunch. Lobster spinach dip, blt salad and filet is the best I’ve ever had for under $100 a plate and it was well under that!!! Thanks again and will definitely be back!!

My server, Jazmin, was incredible! She made certain that I was satisfied with my meal. It was very good food, but it was merely a burger.
Jazmin checked on me frequently, kept my glass full, and was very pleasant... along with having a great sense of humor!

Unfortunately, we were very disappointed in the almost zero precautions that were taken by the restaurant. Yes, all staff wore masks (albeit not correctly), but it was absolutely packed and zero masks worn by patrons when not eating. There was no distancing whatsoever, and we waited an hour for our food when all we wanted to do was leave because we were uncomfortable. We will never support this business ever again even after the pandemic is over and will choose to spend our money at places that truly cared about keeping their customers and staff safe.

My man and I always go out to dinner on NYE to bring in the new year, this year we decided to go to firebirds. I have to say I was so disappointed and went home hungry. The service started out great, the drinks were amazing. When it came time to order our food I ordered a 16 oz Prime rib, my husband got their meatloaf. The food took quite along time to come to our table, our server did apologize for the wait. When the food finally came it was very clear that my prime rib was MW- Well done. I stopped our server who stated “sorry we were out of MR-M prime rib so I rang in a Medium well hoping it would look pinker” WHAT? This is a problem that could have been easily fixed if she told me they were out when I ordered! I than asked for a MR filet that came out blue rare. By the time that steak hit the table my husband was done with his meal and I did not want to wait for another remake. The manage came out to our table twice I explained what happened, he did not offer to take it off our bill or even offer us a free dessert for our trouble. Extremely disappointed how they handled their mess up, will not be returning anytime soon!

We celebrated an 80th birthday. Everything was perfect but they did not have the birthday desert. If I would have known that, I would have brought a cupcake or something. Server was excellent. I felt safe because tables were socially distanced, etc.

My ribeye was cooked perfectly! However, my friends steak was poorly cooked. At first it was very red then it was recooked and sent back extremely dry (no juice). She was disappointed which disappointed me. However, everything else was great. Waitress was awesome I like the diversity within your staff.

The food was great! The steak and mushrooms were better than Sullivan's and at half the price. Waitress was efficient and always there when we needed her. Only disappointment was that Open Table asked if it was a special occasion and I marked that it was our anniversary. However, there was no mention of the occasion at the restaurant.

This was our first time at Firebirds, and we were very impressed. Great atmosphere, service, and menu variety. I ordered the baby back ribs with a side of fries, and my wife ordered the pepper encrusted sirloin with the au gratin potatoes. We look forward to going back and trying other items on the menu.

We like Firebirds. Food and service are always good. Their combination soup/salad and sandwich menu is a great value. I expected a cup of soup and half a sandwich, but received a bowl of soup and a full sandwich - both were excellent.
