    Sent back my first dinner order bc it barely warm and it looked like it had been under the heating lamp to long. And the chicken was dry. The waitress was wonderful and when I told her about the chicken was very apologetic but seemed not surprised. I ordered a different meal and it came out hot and tasty.

    My steak was supposed to be cooked medium rare and was served medium well while my husband ordered his medium and got medium rare. Other than that, we had a good experience and our server was awesome.

    I'm pretty sure we just hit the restaurant on a bad night, but here was our experience: We went to dinner and it started off great- we ordered drinks and an appetizer and then it quickly went downhill from there. Our waitress informed us something had gone wrong and they had lost our order so we ended up waiting about an hour for our food. Once our food arrived, my husband had received the incorrect side item and although he had ordered a 9 oz steak it looked like it was closer to a 5 or 6 oz steak and was not cooked as he had requested (it was way over done and VERY dry). I would not recommend their steaks if you come here. I also felt that for what this was it was over priced for what we got. They ended up comping my husband's entree, but even after that for 2 rounds of drinks for 2 people (including 1/2 off glasses of wine) 1 entree and 1 appetizer, our bill was $91. Our server was very nice and apologetic and the manager we spoke to was nice as well, but the whole experience was just kind of irritating. It's likely we just ended up there on a bad night, but I don't know that I'll go back for dinner. I've been for happy hour and its been lovely, but dinner not so much.

    The Tabletop was sticky. Got double charged for one glass of wine. Bread was exceptionally hard. Could barely even cut the small loaf. Gave up on that. Loaded baked potatoes were cold. The aged ribeye was not very tender and not seasoned well. Seasoned side vegetables were too firm. Restrooms needed attention. This was my first visit and most likely my last.

    This was my first time going to Firebird’s in Durham and will definitely be coming back. It maybe took at the most 1.5 minutes to transition from the door to our table. Coming from Greensboro, it was great to quickly sit down. Our server, Rebecca, was pleasant and quick with our every need. Our food was AMAZING! I will forever get the Cajun Ribeye! If we could change anything, maybe more booth seating options for smaller parties. I have always preferred seating at a booth for back support.

    First and foremost we all love Firebirds. Girls get together so we were excited to fellowship and have a good time. The first thing we noticed was that it was warm inside. The server let us know that one of the AC units was out of service. Nevertheless, we ordered drinks which were very good but the entrees weren’t the best. The chicken pasta didn’t have much kick and the Cajun ribeyes were tough although cooked to a perfect medium temperature as requested. I know all about Cajun and there was nothing very Cajun about the flavor. It was replaced with a chili rub salmon which was cooked perfectly. To be fair, management was aware of the issue and accommodated the alternate orders without hesitation. I have had better experiences at this same location and a few others over the years. This wouldn’t prevent me from dining at another Firebirds in the future. As a matter of fact I’ve made reservations for my daughters college graduation next month in VA.

    Nice variety of reasonably priced lunch specials that included soups, salads and sandwiches. I ordered my favorite; a flounder sandwich with a BLT side salad. The sandwich was on a brioche bun with lettuce, tomatoes, tarter sauce and a large piece of flounder - delicious!
