Due to COVID all tables were at least 6ft away from other tables, the server was masked and gloved, and the food was excellent as always!!

Trying to give a little help during this Covid Time. Everything was excellent. Good spacing of seats, masks worn by staff, and good protective measures taken. Chili rubbed ribeye was perfect. Excellent service by waitress and staff.

Service was very good. Four of us had salads. Two ordered a mixed greens with tuna which was delicious. Only one small bread roll and butter was put on the table to serve 5 people. I should have asked for more, but didn’t. My husband had the Philadelphia cheese steak egg rolls, which he likes very much. I didn’t ask the other two people if they liked their food, but they cleaned their plates, so I’m going to assume that they did. We will definitely return.

There was nothing memorable. I remarked in OpenTable that it was a birthday celebration, but there was no "happy birthday," or "what are we celebrating?" There was no ambiance at all, I don't recall any music even. The drinks didn't seem to contain alcohol, but were tasty. There was an advertised Wednesday, all day Happy Hour via email, the staff new nothing about it. Maybe things were off because of COVID, but if you're going to be open and charge full price, you should offer the full experience. Unless this was the normal experience?

Nice meal and felt safe. Two of us had Delmonico steaks and two had steak and shrimp. Everything cooked to perfection. We also had an Ahi salad and lobster cheese and salsa appetizer. Both were great. Our service was also very attentive. Will be back.

It was my husband's 50th birthday and we went to Firebirds to celebrate. This was our second time dining there and we thought that it would be like it was the first time. I'm not sure if the cook staff had changed but we were disappointed, as well as the people we invited. The steaks were really good, but the pasta dishes were not good at all. It was as though the pasta was not fully cooked, it was really stiff. A couple of complaints about the chicken wings being cooked too long, some people returned their dishes.

Took forever to get food and appetizers. Food was either undercooked or cold. Took a while for drink orders to be taken. 3 trips before waitress brung straws for the whole table. Some has to take their food to go. Usually one of my favorites not sure what happened this particular trip. Food choices weren’t available. Manager tried to make things right it was greatly appreciated.

Not as good as when we were there two weeks ago. Salad never came out before the entree. Ribeye was supposed to be medium and it was well done. French fries were good. Ordered dessert. Vanilla ice cream was literally served in a butter cup-very small and served with a soup spoon. Service was not great either. Will have to rethink a return visit.

Our wait staff was fantastic. The only complaint I have is the table arrangement. Three tables were put together lengthwise, but one table was much smaller than the others. All the tables should have been the same size. However, our great wait staff swapped that table out.

My husband and I live three cities away and when we shop at Nordstrom’s we like to top it off with a good meal. The two times in the past two months we ate here were not up to expectations. The first time the young man was not attentive at all and the food was slow getting to us. The second time the kitchen served a burnt dish. I won’t go back to that location again.

Service was terrible. Got stuck behind a table of 8 ladies and that is where our waiter devoted all his time. Food was great as normal but service really killed the meal.

Early dinner @ 4:30 for 5. Overall, food was good but 2 out of 3 steaks were over cooked (asked for medium but steaks were well on their way to being well done).

This was our second try after a disastrous first attempt. The service was fine, food overall was good however the steaks that were ordered were so thick they were very difficult to cut. Not sure if this is regular or the cuts were different that day. Don't think I'd order steak if I go again.

I always enjoy my time at Firebirds. The food is nearly always quite tasty and well-prepared. When it isn’t, the server asks no questions, returns with something else, and sends the manager over to apologize for the restaurant’s having fallen short. Food is American casual, with pastas and grilled items, plus lighter-fare salads. Dinners are about $30/per pretip but with a round of drinks, assuming that everyone doesn’t order a serious steak, which would take the prices a bit higher.

There is a bar to the right as you enter the restaurant. Quite well-stocked, amiable bartenders, and hightop tables if you prefer them to the bar. It’s also very loud, especially on weekends, so I’d opt for one of the booths instead, if you’re as interested in your companions are you are in the food.

Lighting is just right, music unobtrusive (if there is any), and a convivial environment in which to have lunch or dinner. Servers are knowledgeable about food allergies and inform the chefs accordingly.

We loved our server. He was very attentive and helpful when it came to recommending menu items and pairing drinks with our dinner.

We weren’t very happy with the filet that we both ordered. Filets aren’t supposed to be fatty and these were extremely fatty, so I think they may have run out of filets and not told anyone and tried to disguise them. Not cool. If not, they REALLY need to step up their quality of meat. Luckily the deviled eggs were amazing and I filled up on those.

Been going to Firebirds for last 5 Valentines Day dates. Food is always superb because the wait staff makes sure it goes from ready to table instantly. We enjoy the people as much as the food.
