First time here. Food is very good, especially steak and ribs, salmon not so much. Handmade cocktails are fruity and dilute, stick with traditional or beer. Wine list is mostly supermarket mass-produced decent wines at 3-4x retail. Friendly, attentive service. Nothing bad, but very pricey for the quality. More casual dress than expected. I'll go back, but with tempered expectations.

Food is consistently great each time we go to Firebirds. Our server was exceptional. It’s not inexpensive but the quality and portion size is worth the price, especially if it’s for a special occasion. Highly recommend Firebirds.

Another wonderful evening at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill -- Columbus was enjoyed. My son and his girlfriend chose to dine with FBWFG on their 1 year dating anniversary and they were treated like superstars. The GM took time to say hello to them as he always does; he greets all the customers. It's a welcoming and pleasant environment. Such great staff, tasty food, and always the best service.

They only had medium prime rib and the prime rib special was the reason that we were going. I did try a piece cooked medium and it tasted as if it has been sitting all day. Used to be great-won't be back for a while after this visit.

The food was good but the restaurant is loud . The seating is casual and doesn’t line up with the price of the meals. Disappointed to add a salad to a pricey meal already - you have to pay an additional 5.50. I don’t believe we will visit the restaurant again . My family was in town for the Car Show and we always go to dinner when they here. Unfortunately the price wasn’t worth the experience.

We booked a family reservation at Firebirds because of their great kids menu coupled with good priced adult meals. It was our first time visiting following my husband’s promotion at work. The server asked if we were celebrating anything and I let her know that we were. The kitchen created a one of a kind personalized dessert for our family complete with the logo of my husband’s employer and a card signed by their entire team. The manager came over personally to thank my husband for doing what he does and to make sure everything was great. We were not expecting that kind of service when I booked the reservation and we were completely blown away by their attention to detail throughout the entire meal. Our server treated us as new friends and you could tell the entire team from the host, server, kitchen, and manager take pride in delivering the best experience possible. Thank you Firebirds! We will be back for some more lobster queso soon!

Lovely patio, great service - but just average food. Really good red Sangria. Overcooked scallops, everything lacked seasoning. We had a good time anyway!

I ordered a Delmonico steak but asked to have it cooked in the traditional seasoning method vs. how it was described on the menu. The steak was cooked to perfection, but so heavily seasoned that you couldn't taste the meat...only the seasoning.

My dinner partners meals turned out very well.

I would return again but ask for very light seasoning, because I like steak flavors to shine through!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary be going out to Firebirds restaurant. We had a wonderful evening. Since I'd mentioned it was our anniversary on our OpenTable reservation, the staff did a great job at wishing us a happy anniversary. Cory, our waiter, provided excellent, thoughtful service. The food was outstanding. Salad, entree, vegetable, dessert - everything was top notch. We will be back!

The food is always great. Something needs to be done about the noise level. Last time we came on Fathers Day we sat in silence because it was impossible to hear the person across the table.This last time was a little better but still very aggressive. When our gift cards are out I doubt if we come back again.

My wife and I go to Firebirds on a regular basis. Always end up with the Meatloaf or Filet but today felt like something else. That ended up being the ribs. Wasn't hopeful, but wow. The ribs were perfectly cooked and the sauce, AMAZING! Well done Firebirds.

We decided to go to the Bar area vs take a table b/c there were tables available. Unfortunately after almost 10 minutes and no one waiting on us I went to the bar to get two drinks. the reason I've given high marks is the bartender apologized that no one had waited on us, and told us she would personally wait on us. this was a great move, shed did a great job and the food (as always) was very very tasty. the deviled eggs with fresh jalapeno and bacon are addicting and the chili rubbed Delmonico was perfectly prepared for both of us and disappeared quickly.

Not worth the price and won’t be returning. My daughter politely commented to the server that her ribeye was very fatty, showing him a mound of fat at least 1/3 the size of the entire steak. He came back at her with, “Well a ribeye is the fattiest cut.” Being well-versed in such things, she politely stated that a good ribeye is marbled with fat as opposed to being solid fat. He looked at her as if she had three heads, seeming rather annoyed. The steak was awful; the bite I tasted was like chewing shoe leather.... terribly overpriced.

My meatloaf was good, but both of us wanted mashed potatoes and were told they were out of mashed (!?!?!). The server recommended the au gratin potatoes and they, too, were a big disappointment. Both lovers of cheese, we each took a bite and left the rest. I don’t know what kind of cheese was used, but it tasted like Velveeta.

With the vast choice of eateries in Columbus, I can safely say I tried Firebirds, but won’t be back.
