We were quickly greater at the entrance and seated.
Food was good, but the star of the show was our server!
He was very attentive, friendly and professional!
I only wish I wrote his name down 🤦🏻♂️
I hope to get him again as our server on our next visit.
I like the place in general. Been there before, but this time place was very load and the some of the steaks had way to much gristle
Waiter was excellent. He knew what you needed before you asked. He looked like he was enjoying his job. Spinach salad was good but the bacon was very hard. My husbands filet was under cooked but he said it was very good. Au gratin potatoes seemed like they were made last week. My rib eye was very hard to chew. Seemed over seared on the outside but ok on the inside. Very dried out.
Food was solid. Service was excellent. Extremely well run. The ambiance was what you would expect from a restaurant attached to a shopping mall. Very casual.
I've always brought company people to lunch and never had any issues with the food quality, servers, etc. We recently went in the evening, and the food was great, but it seemed very loud. It was kind of tough for all six of us to hear each other during the meal. We'd definitely go back anyway since the food is awesome!
The food and our waitress were outstanding!!! We will be going back!!
Food is consistent, servers are amazing and there is the best manager!
Very nice. Food was hot and cooked perfectly.
Great food for the family.
The steaks r great. All of them 100 and the apps, bacon deviled eggs and the Philly cheese steak egg rolls where amazing..the drinks mango sangria was the best I've ever had definitely go u will love it
Server was Avery nice and professional elevated our entire experience
We visited Firebirds after an 18 month reprieve, hoping for a good experience. It was a Monday evening, so it was not very busy. I asked for my meal to be served HOT, because in the past I’ve had to send entrees back to be reheated. Same thing happened again…it was served barely warm. And the veggies were cold, like they just came out of the fridge. We know times are still challenging for hospitality businesses like these, however serving meals at the right temp should be fairly easy. We like the food, but we’re not going to spend $20+ on a plate of cold chicken or pasta.
Firebirds is Fabulous! Just wish our drinks could've came out before the appetizers! I don't like to feel rushed. The food was fantastic though...everyone enjoyed their meals and beverages!!! xoxo
Great food and service definitely recommend!!
Food & service is always amazing!!
Sat at bar. Bartender was awesome! Food and drinks were excellent
Our server was great, food was delicious. I think they may have been short staffed in the kitchen/bar because it took a little longer than I would expect to get our food and drinks since it was not busy, but I would definitely come back again. It was overall great!
Both of our potato side dishes were cool, server didn't really care. Chips were shiny and oily, straight out of the fryer. Steaks were terrific.
Food is consistently good snd our server was very nice.
Delicious cocktails and prime rib
Our food was not hot. It was lukewarm at best. Spent almost $200 for 2 apps and 4 meals that were not hot. Server wasn’t that attentive as I would have probably ordered more drinks from the bar.
The food and service were very good…I think a smaller side salad should be offered free or for a small charge
Food is good. Particularly like the salads and steaks.
Server was very nice , helpful, and efficient . Food and cocktails were very good. I would definitely go back.
I’ve been to this restaurant many times and have always been happy with the food and service. Our most recent experience has left me very disappointed. The service was not great, our waitress seemed like she didn’t want to be there. The food was sub par and had no flavor. I don’t think I will be dining here ever again.
This experience with firebirds was exquisite. The wings were amazing and the main courses were delightful. Our server was great and the dining atmosphere was warm and inviting.
The hostesses don't have a clue. Even making a reservation for 2 couples, we were seated in the crowded family area. We were led to a table in the middle of the room and when I asked to have a booth instead was told ,"well we've got lots of reservations tonight" Well, I was one of those reservations! Bright lights and loud noise made it more like TGIFriday's than the upscale casual they claim to be.
Food and server were good, but after the seating issue, I wasn't left with the relaxing feeling I hoped to have for an evening out. Disappointing.
The food took almost an hour to come. I ordered a hamburger medium rare with fried onions and tater tots. They arrived cold and burger was well done. The onion was barely cooked. I was charged for a cheeseburger and was was charged extra for the “fried onions.” Server kept apologizing for the delay but that didn’t help the food to appear. They need to get their act together. Very disappointing!
Great food great service great atmosphere!
Loved the location , device and menu and the reasonable prices make this a must visit again restaurant.
We had read good reviews about this place, so we wanted to try it while visiting the area. The restaurant had a nice style to it and pleasant ambience. We went on a Friday night and it wasn’t too busy. We chose to sit outside. After they cleaned our table (although there was only 1 other table seated outside), we sat down at a safe distance from the other guests. There were 2 other tables that hadn’t been cleaned outside. That should’ve been the first red flag. Our waiter came to greet us, very friendly and well versed with the menu. He took our order, bring us bread we even went inside to check on other tables. When the entrees finally came, they were all cold, as if they’d been waiting for pick up. We ordered 4 different steaks, and all were slightly warm at best. We had to send one steak back for being undercooked. We requested “medium” and it came “rare” which of course takes even less time to cook. When we finally got the steak back, everyone ate and we were all content with the flavors. The Food itself was very tasty. The steaks were juicy, well seasoned, the vegetables were great, side salads we ordered as well. But the service was just terrible. Everything took long, and our server kept disappearing. We had to go inside to look for him, he was chatting at the bar. Very unprofessional and really dampened our experience.
I’ve come to this location plenty of times but the server we had this time around was very inattentive. We basically had already finished our meals before they came to make sure the meals came out ok or if we needed anything.
Service and food always good
Wine selections (plural) unavailable from the bar. Gave up on wine and went to mixed drink order. Bartenders more concerned with talking in the kitchen than making drinks and when finally, making them wrong 30 MINUTES LATER. Finally gave up ordering from bar. Their loss of money.
New table server who required real time correction from managers about table layout and how to ensure right food to right table. I received the wrong salad. Other tables spoke pf wrong food and latent service. Asked of us several times about the orders as server could not recall what we said even though, in some cases, she had already written it down.
Long lag times between courses with no updates and having to ask several times for the same item before service got it (they are easily distracted). Three course meal took 90 minutes.
The saving grace, the quality of the food. Some of best steak and seafood in the area.
If you dine, sit inside as patio tables are set into concrete six inches higher than the chairs! An average adult will need a booster seat.
Seems like an inefficient use of personnel, some running busily while others just watch and seem not to have much to do despite a half full restaurant.
I will dine again hoping a bad night occurred but if a repeat…
Team gathering. It was awesome. Staff was very accommodating. Thank you Gina and Troy for working everything out for our groups.
Some disorganization with handling a large group, but otherwise good.
We ordered two steaks, one was a Delmonico, the other was a Ribeye.
The Delmonico on menu has Chili spices. Ask if it was available without the spices, was told yes.
When served, it had the spices on it. The Waitress took it back to the Manager ( who never came over to our table!!)
After about 5 minutes, another server came out of the kitchen to our table to inform us that his "sous-chef" told him the steak did not have any spice on it. The plate was sprinkle with it, the steak tasted like it. The Server continue to correct us that the steak had flavors from the grill. Yet the Ribeye cooked on the same grill DID NOT have the spice flavor on it.
He did offer to cook something else, but after not being believed, not interested in anything else from the kitchen.
Manager who was less than 50 feet away should have come to our table.
He showed no interest at all.
Then when we received the bill, they did not take the charge off the bill, and had to bring it to their attention. Humm??
Restaurant is clean, very nice, but will not be returning. We are in this area every weekend during the summer, will not be referring anyone as well.
Treating a customer like they are 100% wrong, and your sou-chef could not make a mistake is extremely poor customer service.
No interest from Manager is further commitment that they don't listen to the Customer, employee is always right!
The food was very good. A bit loud but the service was great!
