Perfect patio lunch. A+ all around dining experience.
Food was delicious. Dining area is spacious and was good for social distancing. My my filet was tender and cooked as requested. Accommodations were made for food allergies. Friendly wait-staff.
Nice place. Ordered pineapple chicken got three small pieces of pineapple and garlic mashed potatoes were served cold.
Had a great time. Food was excellent as always. We had a great waitress you was so attentive. My only complaint was that this was the 3rd time I have been there that their air conditioner was working well. It was very warm.
Terrible. Took 87 year old mom out for a steak. Arrived on time at 5 pm on a hot day. Notice posted that air conditioning not properly working and they were working on it. Hotter inside and outside. No fans procured, no relief. Attentive service. Few options for steaks without bacon. Selected what was available. Terrible bland and tough steak, tasteless vegetables, undercooked bread, unhealthy dessert options. Saw manager who offered to replace steak. Didn’t want that and he took it off the tab. Husband’s steak was undercooked and had to be returned to the grill. Menu needs an overhaul. There are much better steak houses. Won’t return.
Very big restaurant so a lively environment. Service was great. The food was very good. A little tough to choose healthy, could be more options available in this category. Overall, every was tasty and well presented. I would eat here again.
The ac was broken in the middle of summer, but overall it was a good experience.
AC was broken, but food and service were excellent as always. Highly recomend.
Good experience other than the broken AC. Our server Xavier was great.
Air conditioning not working - was kind of warm in there, especially after eating a full meal. Admittedly the hostess did warn us on the way in, but it was still uncomfortable.
Some possible good ideas to help with the bad customer experience would have been to have the manager visit tables to apologize and make sure diners were doing ok or offered diners a return discount or something to make up for the bad experience or even setup some fans or....
Also, the floor of the bathroom was all wet near the urinals in the men's bathroom. Maybe have someone check every hour or so? Also medium steak was still red in the middle - not pink as it should have been.
Most times we've been there it has been great, so would still recommend for now - they were definitely having a bad night. At least our waitress was friendly, so that helped.
1/2 priced bottles of wine on Monday is an awesome deal to compliment the delish food and fine service
Firebirds has the best waiter in Durham and once again we were fortunate enough to have Larry serve us. Larry makes this restaurant a five star experience. I spent a decade of my life in all aspects of a restaurant including table service which makes me appreciate just how good he is and just how much a difference such service makes in the overall experience. The food is very good. The restaurant itself is nice inside but perhaps beginning to show wear and tear, and the poorly functioning HVAC may be a sign of that. But none of that would deter me from going there. Service matters.
I had the tenderloin salad was very pleased. Two of us ordered orzo chicken soup as a starter; turned it back for overselling.
Otherwise, very yummy and filling.
Everything was excellent. Good food and great service.
Normally the food is excellent as well as everything else. Tonight some of the food was a little less than stellar. This could easily be because of a specific cook. The wait staff was excellent.
Burgers and fries were Great!
They were having issues with the a/c, but told you that before you walked in. Service was great, food was good, drinks were fabulous!
Food and service was excellent but it was No Air or A/C and wasn’t aware till we sat down
The air conditioning wasn’t working and it was very hot. This is my second visit where the a/c was broken. Would not recommend until a/c is repaired.
Everything was great and our server Xavier was simply great!!! Our favorite restaurant for any occasion and especially for birthdays and anniversaries!!
Food was amazing! Everything was so fresh and the staff was very friendly. Definitely will come back here!
Nice date night spot! The food was great and came out fast.
My husband and I went for our anniversary. The food was perfect and fantastic, and their lobster spinach queso was out of this world! The service was wonderful and everything arrived in a timely manner. The AC was out, but that’s not their fault. 10/10 would recommend and go back.
Our dinner was outstanding. We had reservations and we were seated promptly. Our waitress was friendly, answered our questions and we felt right at home. The atmosphere was relaxing and every employee we passed greeted us and made us feel welcome. We both ordered filet mignon and it was made to perfection. Can't wait to return in the future.
First time here and had the seared ahi tuna superfood salad and it was fantastic! My Dad loved his meatloaf and my mom had a wonderful Caesar Salad. Service was excellent! Great experience!
Excellent service from the moment we entered the door! Great food! Lovely atmosphere! Will definitely return.
We were happy to be able to return to in restaurant dining at Firebirds post pandemic. Much was the same except a change in the menu that has deleted the sesame salmon meal. I was very disappointed to find that it is not on the menu any more as it was one of the reasons we chose Firebirds. Instead, I had the 7 ounce filet which was very good and my husband had the prime rib. He was disappointed in the meat which had about 3 runs of grizzle that he was unable to chew.
The service was excellent and our waitress was attentive and helpful.
This was an anniversary meal and on the whole we enjoyed it.
Food was ok
Everything was excellent, although my server kept forgetting things and seating was terrible!! but overall we enjoyed our evening will definitely be going back!!!
Brought my dad to Firebirds for Father's Day. We all enjoyed our experience as always. If you like deviled eggs, please try their bacon jalapeno deviled eggs. You will really enjoy them.
AC was out
Server was great, but host was rude and food was salty and not prepared as requested. First and only time here.
I recommend them 1000 times. Everything was AWESOME
Excellent service and ambiance. The food was excellent.
We were waiting for our food more than 40 minutes. Finally the food came, but the grill chicken was dry and hard. The onion ring was cold inside. We had been this place many times. This is the worst experience ever.
The food was delicious & our server Jeremiah was awesome! We will be coming back for sure! :)
Enjoyed it. Food was great. It was hot inside the building. 2nd time coming here and it was hot inside. Bit still a great place to go.
My fiance ordered salmon and there were sharp bones in it! I ordered a side salad and never got it. The waitress never brought it. She seemed overwhelmed and didn't come to check on us once. The food was overpriced. I wont be going back. For that kind of money, you expect service and food to be perfect.
I tried the Kobe meatloaf, delicious. Our server was outstanding!
We had a reservation for 2 at 7pm, didn’t get seated until almost 7:30. People who came in after us with later reservations for the same number of diners were seated first. That wasn’t a good start in my eyes. Larry our waiter saved the day. He was a wonderful server. Food was delicious.
