    Our server was nice, professional and personable. The food was good although just a little too salty for me. My husband enjoyed his filet and it was cooked just the way he likes it. He also enjoyed the loaded potato and mushrooms. The BLT salad was delicious.

    The server at this location was extremely rude. She was clearing out the table and picked a plate of food that I was still eating from and I told her I was still eating from that plate. She now asked me if I was also still eating from another empty plate. I just asked my daughter and her friend that we need to leave. She’s been showing bad attitude but I just couldn’t take it anymore.

    We've only started going to Firebirds two months ago, and this was our fourth visit, including a 70th birthday party with 14 people for yours truly at the Morrisville location. We've also experienced Durham (leading to this review) and have been to North Hills a couple of times. The staff have ALL been extremely cordial and accommodating. The Wednesday-only bar deals for both bar bites and alcoholic drinks are outstanding. It's worth signing up for their e-mails as they regularly have 2- and 3-course specials.

    My wife and I have visited Firebirds maybe 4 or 5 times over the last 8 years. At one time I felt that Firebirds was really on top of their game. I remember one particular meal where Firebirds knocked it out of the park, food, service and atmosphere. Unfortunately, that was not the case at last night's dinner. I'm taking into account the labor shortages (really I am) but service was just ok (has that become the new exceptional?) and value was a bit lacking. The bill for 2 adults and 1 child with a few drinks and tip was roughly $150. My 11 year old daughter got the impossible burger and didn't like it. My wife got the Garlic Butter Sirloin and didn't like it...so they swapped plates after one bite and we got through the meal. I had the ribs which were mediocre quality (and small and overly sauced) and the steak fries were mediocre. I did enjoy the mushrooms and the broccoli with the garlic butter was quite tasty. We waited a long time for dinner and the food was just ok, something I would expect for less money or a better experience. As a business owner my advice is to take the limited staff that you've manage to recruit and double down on training. Put a star-player at your check-in, someone who delivers a smile and a sincere check-in. If you don't have enough skilled staff then close some of your tables and create a longer wait-time. Short term profits to ruin your long-term business is senseless. Just ask your neighbors across the walkway...oh wait, you can't because they're out of business and the doors are closed. They didn't learn but it's not too late for you. Renegotiate with your food suppliers and ask for better food. Decide on whether you're going to remain the premium restaurant that you used to be or fall victim to lower quality and poor, untrained staff. If you have to, pay your staff more and kick out the lame people...there were several last night with either blah attitude or poorly trained. (BTW there was ONE bartender that was exceptional)

    Server seemed to be rushing us through the dinner experience. It was most prevalent when she asked if we waned dessert half way through the meal. When we said no she immediately brought the check. Food was terrific.

    Not so good this time. Food was fine, but service didn't work out, especially with four different inattentive people dropping off parts of our meal, mostly in passing. Bar was out of vermouth to make our cocktails, which we were only told 20+ minutes after ordering, by which time salad had long since arrived. As we then started on the salad, entrees were immediately plopped down, with the steak already luke warm. Bread to accompany the now-canceled cocktails arrived after the entree. I suppose the idea is to get food out quickly, but how about having someone thinking about the right timing. It's a systemic problem, only partially the fault of hard-working server Louis, but leading to a very poor dining experience.

    Ordered the Colorado Chicken Salad, requested they "add" the grilled shrimp to it. When it arrived at the table there was no chicken (must not understand adding food). So the server went to get the chicken, which when it arrived she said the chicken is being served "cold" now, is that ok. Well, what am I going to say when the salad is already at the table. Actually no, that isn't ok, that means they're not grilling it when ordered, just grab one from the fridge. I noticed that there were only 6 shrimp, not the 8 advertised on the menu. The server said "Oh, they changed it from 8 to 6" of course they didn't change the menu, or tell me and oh by the way the price was the same. I thought it was somehow misleading at best to show things in the menu, then change or substitute at will without notice. I'm very disappointed in Firebird's, Durham, NC noticeably changing!

    Great spot for a pre-UNC gameday meal when tailgating is not an option. Server was great and the manager brought our meal to the table and checked on us to see if we needed anything and thanked us for coming in. We will be back.
